According to Women’s Health, Jessica is 25 years old and can be found at @jessclarke_ on Instagram. She and Ben began a relationship after he slid in her DMs after Ben found her on Instagram. He discovered her page while he was in Nashville and wanted to see what teams were playing that night. Ben came across a picture of Jessica with her father at a game and took a screenshot of the photo. A few months later Ben messaged her on Thanksgiving and Jessica of course responded not thinking their messaging would go anywhere. Before she began a whole new life with the former reality star, Jessica was known for her athleticism. She ran track at the University of Mississippi and was an athlete in high school. In fact, Jessica is also the co-owner of several gyms.
Her gyms are called SweatNet and she co-owns different places in Nashville and Denver. Since we’re still in a pandemic, the gym is now offering free streaming classes so you can workout at home. Besides owning a number of gyms in two states, Jessica is also studying to be an aesthetician. She revealed in an Instagram post back in June 2020 that she is going back to school to get her aesthetician’s license. With her gyms and her aesthetician’s license in progress, Jessica is making enough money to buy a house with Ben in his home town of Denver. In December, the couple announced they had recently bought a house together. Due to their shared Christian faith, Jessica will be living in the house by herself until after the wedding when Ben moves in. As of right now the couple is planning on getting married towards the end of 2021, but with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic the date isn’t set in stone.
Jessica came into Ben’s life at the perfect moment in time. It had been about a year since he broke off his engagement and was finally ready to find love again. He seems to have found his perfect match in Jessica.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8pm EST on ABC.
