How their relationship progressed?

Ashley and Jared coming together began in the second season of Bachelor in Paradise. The couple either separately or together has been part of most of the Bachelor franchise. They had moments of fun as well as sadness. Their relationship was one roller coaster ride with a lot of ups and downs. There was flirting and crying. Ashley was upset initially that Jared was not reciprocating her romantic feelings for him. There was a lot of teary-eyed drama. The fans and viewers knew this was coming but there was still an element of surprise in the Sunday’s proposal.

Ashley had her heart set on Jared right from day one. She knew that he was her Mr. Right from season two of the show itself in 2015. But for Jared, it did take three years to fully realize what his true feelings were and to give vent to them.

Jared’s YouTube video

Jared had shared a video on his YouTube where he talked about their love story. He said in that video:

“I never felt like it was over between us after Paradise, which is why I said we’re still going to be friends. Like, it just didn’t feel over.”
