Are they the new Chip and Joanna?

JoJo Fletcher found love with Jordan Rodgers on ABC's The Bachelorette, but the two haven't been in any kind of rush to tie the knot. They've been together for more than a year now and, despite saying that they wanted to tie the knot in 2017, have seemingly put wedding planning on the back burner.

They've been spending time with Fletcher's family, they've traveled, and now they're working together! JoJo and Jordan have been flipping houses in their spare time and it seems like they might be angling for their very own reality show (of the DIY nature).

Meanwhile, the lovebirds keep their fans in the loop by sharing plenty of selfies on social media, but it's possible that things haven't been rosy this whole time. Here are 15 new things to know about their relationship.

1. They were supposed to get married last year...oops!

After getting engaged in 2016, JoJo and Jordan said that they wanted to get married in 2017. Their initial plan was to take some time to enjoy their engagement after their whirlwind romance, but that has apparently taken longer than expected.

2. They've teamed up on the business front and have been flipping houses together.

JoJo and Jordan have started their own side business together, flipping houses. That is, they buy run-down properties, completely renovate them, and then sell them for a profit.

"There is nothing more rewarding than getting to the end of a long, hard remodel," JoJo recently wrote on social media, captioning a pic of one of the couple's latest flips. Are they the new Chip and Joanna?

3. They seem to be gunning for their own HGTV reality show.

JoJo has been busy posting all about her house-flipping adventures with Jordan, and some people seem to think that the couple is looking to get their very own reality show a la Chip and Joanna Gaines. When asked about the possibility, Jordan told People Magazine, "We’d love to do that."

4. Her 3.5 carat engagement ring is worth about $85,000.

Jordan proposed to JoJo with a Neil Lane engagement ring on the finale of The Bachelorette. The impressive bauble is said to be 3.5 carats in total weight and it retails for about $85,000. Set in platinum, the ring consists of a large center stone that is oval in shape. The band itself is encrusted in pave diamonds. 

5. And she has to give it back to ABC if she and Jordan split!

That's right. If JoJo and Jordan break up, JoJo has to return the ring to ABC. It's in her contract.

6. Her BFF is Becca Tilley, and the two recently did a girls-only trip to Tulum.

JoJo met her BFF Becca Tilley on The Bachelor when the two women were vying for the love and affection of Ben Higgins. The two recently got back from a girls-only trip to Tulum, Mexico. 

7. Baby fever is totally a thing (and they totally have it).

Both of JoJo's brothers are expecting children with their significant others, so it makes sense that JoJo is starting to get the itch for a little one of her own. 

"Both of JoJo's brothers are expecting. So the baby fever came, and she gives me those eyes. She's like, 'I want one!' I'm like, 'We've got things to do before we get there!' But also, I feel like she’s going to get her fix. She'll get to feel what it's like to be an aunt, and she'll love that. But you better believe my parents are like, 'Hey, we want grandkids!,'" Jordan told People Magazine back in February.

In case anyone is wondering, they both seem to want three kids.

8. They might have gone through a rough patch.

There has been some evidence, dug up by the best sleuths on the internet, that JoJo and Jordan broke up sometime last year. "JoJo and Jordan unfollowed each other only to refollow each other again a few hours later," a Reddit user wrote in a discussion thread

9. He recently posed in his undies for a Captain Morgan ad.

In February, Jordan joined forces with Captain Morgan and posed in his undies, er...their undies, for an ad. You can grab a pair of the boxer briefs for $24.95, if you're interested.

10. They've been accused of fronting a relationship that is more of a "business deal."

Since JoJo and Jordan haven't gotten married (or even planned a wedding), there are plenty of skeptics out there. Some people have been wondering if these two are merely putting on a front and staying "engaged" for the sake of additional opportunities in the entertainment world.

11. Jordan still doesn't have a relationship with his brother, Aaron.

As was highlighted on The Bachelorette, Jordan doesn't have a relationship with his brother, NFL Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. There was some speculation that Rodgers' relationship with Olivia Munn was the cause, but they broke up and Aaron is now dating Danica Patrick — and is still not talking to Jordan.

12. She recently went back to the Bachelor franchise to take part in Winter Games.

JoJo might no longer be a "bachelorette," but she's still in touch with producers on the show. In fact, she appeared as a "kissing judge" on The Bachelor: Winter Games, which aired back in February. 

13. He landed a job on ESPN's SEC Network.

When Jordan isn't flipping houses, he's working his "day job" as a sports commentator. He recently inked a deal with ESPN's SEC Network. 

14. He doesn't want to be "lumped in" with the other Bachelor/ette couples.

A post shared by Jordan Rodgers (@jrodgers11) on Jun 29, 2017 at 6:13pm PDT

JoJo and Jordan might have found love on reality television, but Jordan wants everyone to know that his relationship with JoJo is different from the other relationships that people have formed on the show.

"We always get lumped into being part of The Bachelor franchise, so every person is like, 'Oh my God, I'm glad you guys are still together!' And I just think you can't lump everybody into the same group because every relationship is different," he said.

15. They've considered a television wedding (paid for by ABC, of course).

After each season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, fans start wondering if the couples will have a television wedding. The thought has definitely crossed Jordan and JoJo's minds, but the two aren't so sure about it.

"There's just something about that day that is so special. I'm not saying no — like anything, it'd have to be right. But there's just something about that day. I've always thought the more private it can be, the more special, the more natural, the better. I wouldn't want my bride to be worried about anything other than us that day. I'll tell you what, though — the wedding dancing would be great. Because I've got some friends that can break it down, so it would make great TV, for sure," Jordan said.
