He is one of our nearest and dearest closets friends.
Maybe you’ve heard of him recently?
Well……in case you haven’t heard of the handsome young lad, he went on an adventure recently that changed up his life a little bit.
Its called The Bachelorette. Heard of it?
And with his life changing, ours has too kinda.
Why has our life changed? For starters, we can’t go a damn place without getting mauled by cute, over-enthusiastic, Jef from the Bachelorette loving 12-17 year old girls….or 40+ year old women. Actually, girls…boys…grandparents….truckers….aliens….you name it, and they want a picture with Mr. Holm.
They want proof they’ve seen him, and duh. We get it. So, Brons and myself are the designated picture takers. A kinda fun, sometimes boring, sometimes crazy, but really actually cool job. Its awesome to see peoples average day turn into an amazing day just by running into him.
BUT, This can be an issue because we go a lot of places with Jef. Sometimes we just want to go to Taco Bell and get a Nacho Bell Grande…this used to be a 5 minute in and out deal…you know, get our fill of fake orange colored nacho cheesiness then be on our way. But now, its kind of an issue. A big issue in fact.
And we also got to meet Emily! When Jef did his hometown date in St. George myself, Bronson, and our girls got invited to go down to their family ranch and chit chat with the southern beauty herself.
To say we were intimidated is an understatement. It was sooo scary…20 cameras everywhere and people listening to everything you’re saying..BLAH! Nerve wracking to say the least!
Thankfully, the second we sat down with the two of them our nerves were calmed, even though we may or may not have unconsciously eaten an entire bundle of grapes that were supposed to be a table prop while talking to the lovebirds(…maybe that’s the reason ABC edited us out of the episode…? ha ha I don’t blame them). But, Emily was the sweetest, least intimidating, most charming and warm girl ever. Honestly, she was a gem.
So, with each passing Monday more and more people are falling in love with Jef, and do I blame them? Nope. He’s an easy to like kinda guy. I guess what I’m saying is never in my life did I expect to be in a position that, lately, I find myself in quite a bit. Never did I foresee any of my friends becoming famous overnight. And what is he famous for?…just being a cool guy.
Awesome kind of. Weird too. But I give him props…I get overwhelmed by the amount of people attacking him and wanting him every second. He handles it so amazingly well. Jef is always so kind to everyone, acknowledges each fan, and takes time out of his life to make someone else’s day a little bit cooler.
And believe it or not, all of this hasn’t changed him. He’s still the same ole, same ole down to Earth guy.
If you haven’t been watching, start now. Mondays at 7 on ABC!
