He wrote, “Hannah said she wanted us to be open and honest, and I didn’t want to go another day without her knowing the truth. I knew some people would take it the wrong way but what mattered to me was being honest so we could focus on our relationship.”
Jed is referring to last week’s episode of The Bachelorette, when he dropped a major bombshell during his one-on-one date. “When I signed up for the show, I was so clueless,” he told Brown. “I was open to the idea because I love ‘love.’ But my first thought was, you know, ‘This is, like, a huge platform.’ And I just want you to know the truth.”
The songwriter then explained how his attitude has changed since that moment, adding, “So, I came in with that mindset. But every moment we’ve had has just kind of…taken all that away and showed me that, like, now—more than anything—I want to be with you.”
While our initial reaction was to send him packing, we applaud Jed for actually listening to what Brown said she’s looking for.
The Bachelorette returns to ABC tonight, June 11, at 8 p.m.
