The Bachelorette star Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher and her brand-new fiance visited Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night.

Airing directly after the season finale and ABC's live After the Final Rose post-show, the appearance marked the pair's first outting as a couple, and JoJo could barely hide her excitement as she sat next to her season 12 winner, Jordan Rodgers.

"I feel like we've been in hiding," she said about meeting up in safe houses over the last two months. "It's a lot of Netflix and chill," added Jordan.

Telling Kimmel that Jordan is packed and ready to move to Dallas in a new home picked by JoJo, the Bachelorette told Kimmel: "Happy wife happy life, right?"

The pair then played a newlywed-type game, where the late-night host tested their knowledge about each other, from naming childhood friends (they both answered correctly) to grandparents (neither could produce a name).

"Maybe you should spend less time watching Netflix," joked Kimmel.

Monday's episode also featured the finale of KImmel's The Baby Bachelorette, which saw Bianca accepting her proposal, too.

On Monday's The Bachelorette, Jordan was crowned the winner during a tense finale, which had a torn JoJo questioning her choice down to the final moments. Ultimately, she picked the former NFL player over runner-up Robby Hayes, a former competitive swimmer.

Despite her family's attempt to sway JoJo in Robby's direction, JoJo ultimately went with her heart when she told the seasonlong frontrunner — who also received the "first impression" rose on the first night — "I love you so much. I've been waiting to tell you that I love you. I didn't want you to get down on one knee without telling you that."

"I'm going to wake up every morning and choose you over, and over, and over again," Jordan said, before asking her to marry him in Phuket, Thailand.

Her answer? "Yes! I'm shaking!"

Robby's ending was not nearly as sweet, as the scorned runner-up was left shocked and "blindsided" when JoJo told him: "Every day, I've been wanting it to be you. I fell in love with you but for some reason, my heart is somewhere else."

On the After the Final Rose special, Robby got his chance to confront JoJo for the first time since their breakup. "You said a lot of things that made me feel like it should have been us," he said to her. 

JoJo, however, told him she was "madly in love" with Jordan and "just couldn't ever imagine saying goodbye to him." When the pair reunited for host Chris Harrison and the live audience, they revealed that they are still happily engaged but that the backlash since the show has aired, especially about Jordan and his family, hasn't been easy, JoJo assured all their critics: "We're just so excited to be normal."
