Jon and Kate Gosselin: How Did the Now-Bitter Exes First Meet?

Seeing what we have of Jon and Kate Gosselin’s nasty split — the divorce drama, the nasty name-calling back and forth in the press — it’s hard to believe that the two were ever a pair of giddy, doe-eyed lovebirds. But young and in love they once were, and they have a pretty freaking adorable tale of how it all started: Jon and Kate first met at a picnic. How cute is that?

These days, Jon has a new girlfriend, Liz Janetta, who appears on Couples Therapy with him. Jon has used the venue to blast Kate over and over again! Clearly, Jon and Kate can’t stand each other anymore.

During the most recent episode, Wetpaint Entertainment asked users on Viggle LIVE! if they knew how Jon and his now ex-wife first met. And you know what? Users were totally stumped. The correct answer actually got the least amount of votes. Only 29 percent correctly guessed that Jon and Kate met at a picnic.

Most people, a total of 36 percent, incorrectly guessed that the couple met at church. Training right behind it, at 35 percent, were those who thought the two met on a blind date.

Kate has said that she and Jon first locked eyes at a picnic back in 1997, and that it was love at first sight. They married two years later, and in 2000, welcomed twins Mady and Cara. Four years after that, they welcomed their now-famous sextuplets.

Now, almost two decades after it all started, these two can barely even look at each other. How times have changed!

The family’s TLC show, Jon & Kate Plus 8 (later Kate Plus 8) ran from 2007 to 2011. The couple divorced halfway through, in 2009.
