ABC held a media conference call with Ed and Jillian and then Kiptyn Locke and Reid Rosenthal Thanks to Film.com reporter Pamela Sitt, here’s what they said.
What was with the outfit you wore to propose to Jillian?
I’ve been asked that every 5 seconds. I was making a fashion statement! Just kidding. I was in a huge rush to get back and I didn’t have time to do laundry. I didn’t know what was in my luggage. I literally flew back to Hawaii and didn’t have any clean clothes. I got there wearing linen pants and sneakers and when I showed up, I guess I looked really bad so I had to put on one of Chris Harrison’s jackets. So that’s basically what went down.
What happened with the ring? The producers didn’t give you one?
No, they flew me to Philadelphia. When they sent me back [to Hawaii], they flew me through L.A. and I went and got a ring. I spent as much as I could at the time, and I flew back to Hawaii.
Were you able to return the ring?
I was able to return it, yes.
