The couple appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! during which they dished on their future together as well as their wedding plans.
Though we just saw their engagement play out on Monday night, the proposal actually took place back in May. The two have had to see each other in secret in other to keep the show’s ending under wraps. Ashley, 27, and J.P., 34, revealed they had been having chaperoned dates in secret every two weeks since filming ended.
In fact J.P. reveals he became dependent on technology to keep in touch with his fiance. “We live on Skype,” he told Kimmel. “I don’t watch any TV any more. It’s work, gym, three hours of Skype, sleep.”
Ashley once again talked about her plans to move in with J.P., who is a construction manager in New York, after she finishes dental school in September.
But perhaps the biggest surprise is that the couple is already planning their wedding! “We really want to focus on our engagement, but I’m thinking fall of next year!” gushed Ashley. And when it comes to Ashley’s sister, Chrystie, who made it clear she wasn’t a fan of JP’s on the finale, J.P. reveals Chrystie feels very differently today. “She’s been nothing but sweet and supportive since we got back,” J.P. told Kimmel. “It’s as is if I didn’t even know who that person was back in Fiji.”
Meanwhile, below is a photo of Ashley’s Neil Lane engagement ring! The 3.5-carat, central cushion-cut sparkler accented with 162 small, hand-set diamonds around a platinum band is reportedly valued at around $60,000.
