Trista and Ryan will be in the Rose Parade; Jen and Andrew are still friends.
Because they never learned the word “overexposure” in school, or the phrase “we hate you,” The Bachelorette couple will appear on our TVs one again, this time as part of the Rose Parade. They’ll be on FTD’s float, which will feature “a record-breaking” 100,000 roses as part of its “love songs” theme. FTD’s press release says “[r]eality TV’s favorite newlywed couple Trista and Ryan are a tribute to the floral industry, having first accepted each other’s love through the exchange of simply one rose.” Barf. Meanwhile, after breaking up, The Bachelor 3‘s Andrew Firestone and Jen Schefft “can’t seem to stay away from each other,” according to an AP story. Andrew told InTouch “we are still very good friends” and says “We speak every day.” He says the break-up was “something that just built up.”
