JEFF ON HOW HIS LONG-AWAITED ENGAGEMENT TO JORDAN PLAYED OUT:
When we recently got engaged, I wasn’t trying to steal thunder and step on any toes, but there was a little pressure from my fiancée. It has been five years and I had not proposed, but we weren’t rushing anything to be in front of the cameras, and we would go at our own pace. Finally, now was the time! The producers always asked me if and when I was going to propose, and so I said this was the year. I proposed on September 5th, and it aired on Sunday, September 7th. Jordan thought we were going to CBS to host a competition, and that is how I got her there. CBS went the whole nine yards, sent emails and said, “Here are your scripts” and what to wear, everything so she would not know what was going to happen.
JORDAN ON GIVING JEFF A HARD TIME ABOUT NOT GETTING ENGAGED PRIOR TO THE WEEK OF THE PROPOSAL:
I feel bad now, because the week before he proposed, I was like, “Listen! I am breaking up with you, if you don’t do anything.” And, I thought he was cheating! He changed the password on his iPad, his phone would ring and he would flip it over, and the day he went to get the ring he was like gone for four hours! Then, I call my mom, and my mom already knows that Jeff is going to propose. So there I am talking to her for about an hour going, “Mom, Jeff’s cheating! I know he is!”(Laughs) I felt so bad.
JEFF ON HOW HIS INITIAL BIG BROTHER EXPERIENCE HAS LED HIM TO FIND LOVE, BECOME A HOST, AND APPEAR ON THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL:
When I got on Big Brother, I wasn’t going on the show to find my future wife, which I found, and I thought nobody was watching this show, and then we got on The Bold and the Beautiful, and then things progressed to Amazing Race and then Big Brother, and then a bunch of shows I did on CBS.com, and then we did a few together, and then now I am doing hosting for all of CBS Interactive and I love it.
JEFF ON WHAT HE AND JORDAN WILL BE DRESSED AS FOR THE HALLOWEEN EPISODES OF THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL:
I love costumes because the first time I got on The Bold and the Beautiful we had 80’s costumes and Jordan’s hair was all big! I love getting in costume! We don’t have a costume unfortunately this year, they just told us to be in beach wear. Cody … I am sure …will have his shirt off, though! (Laughs)
