It was over before it started. JoJo FletcherThe husband Jordan Rodgers‘ upcoming dating show, The Big DTBS has pulled the plug on, ahead of its summer premiere.
The 10-episode series that was intended to help divorcees find love again will not air anymore as the network moves in a different direction. “We’re assessing our schedule to ensure we have the right content mix to support our network strategies,” a TBS spokesperson noted in a statement to Us WeeklyFriday, June 17 “We are grateful to JoJo Fletcher, Jordan Rodgers, and the executive producers of ‘Big D’ for their partnership through the process.”
Initially, the premiere was set for July 7, The Big D followed 10 divorced couples as they “move into a tropical villa in Costa Rica to re-learn how to date and search for love amongst a group of other single divorcees – including their ex.” Contestants were given a series of “revealing relationship EX-ercises designed to help the singles form connections, make peace with their former partners, and finally get over the issues holding them back from dating,” per the synopsis.
One participant was eliminated after completing the challenges. “Jealous exes may try to send their rival home or perhaps even defend their exes’ honor – the possibilities are endless,” the log line read.
Despite the series’ early end, both Fletcher, 31, and Rodgers, 33, still list cohosting The Big DYou can see their Instagram bios with many of their accomplishments.
After being postponed several times, the couple tied the knot in May. They met on season 12 The BacheloretteIn 2016. Rodgers proposed during the finale episode to the Texas native, and he got down on one knee three years later.
“Our first engagement was so real, and meant so much to us both, but as we start to actually plan our wedding for next year I wanted to do it all over again, OUR WAY,” the sports broadcaster explained via Instagram in August 2019 alongside video footage of his bonus proposal. “So I bought a new ring, made a plan (that almost fell apart multiple times), and got down on one knee all over again.”
During the coronavirus epidemic, they were forced to pause on their ceremony several times. After this, they exchanged vows at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez (California) earlier this year. Fletcher exclusively spoke ahead of the big day. UsThe long road to getting to the altar
“It’s been such a long time coming that, like, getting through the ceremony and walking into the reception to party and have fun with our friends, we’re so excited,” she gushed in April. “We can let our hair down and just be like, ‘We did it! We made it! We’re doing it.’”
Pandemic delays weren’t the only challenge the duo faced. In May 2019, the Bachelor alum opened up about how a rough patch in the pair’s relationship made them even stronger. “We’re in the best place ever, let me tell you,” she exclusively told Usat the time. “We’ve been very open about our first year being tough — it wasn’t the easiest. There were definitely some difficult, rocky moments. But these were learning years. And so, we are at the best stage we’ve ever been in our relationship. You fall in love more and more every day. That sounds cheesy, but it’s true.”
