Jesse Palmer is here to stay within The Bachelor franchise and has been well-received by many viewers. 

During his debut as host of The Bachelor, Jesse built up a bond and a playful repertoire with polarizing lead Clayton Echard. 

Jesse and Clayton’s banter at times, including roasting, has continued post-show. 

Recently, Jesse had a shady comment about Clayton, and the dis got Clayton and Susie Evans’ attention.

Now that their relationship is public, Susie Evans and Clayton Echard have been able to flaunt their love across all platforms.

Susie took to Instagram to share a series of photos from her People Magazine shoot with Clayton Echard.

The bright and sunny photoshoot featured Clayton and Susie showing their pearly whites in colorful attire.

Susie captioned the post, “So much fun with @people and all the creatives that made it happen!”

While Susie’s post was met with lots of love and encouragement from fans and fellow Bachelor Nation stars, Jesse had a different, more shady response to the post. 

Jesse poked fun at the photos where Clayton held Susie in his arms and threw some shade at Clayton’s athletic ability. 

Jesse commented, “Don’t let him drop you…he didn’t have the best hands as a football player…” 

The Bachelor viewers will recall that playing football was among the many things Jesse and Clayton had in common, and both were roasted for their brief football careers throughout the season. 

Clayton found humor in Jesse’s playful dis and replied, “dammit, Jesse,” with a laughing emoji. 

Susie also got a laugh out of Jesse’s comment and responded, “respect the shade,” with three laughing emojis.

Jesse Palmer set to host The Bachelorette Season 19 

With Clayton Echard’s season coming to an end, Jesse will now assist dual Bachelorettes Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia on their journey to find love. 

On After the Final Rose, Jesse declared that he would be returning as host of The Bachelorette, replacing former Bachelorette cohosts Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe. 

Gabby and Rachel are already familiar with Jesse after appearing on The Bachelor Season 26, and time will tell what type of banter the three build when The Bachelorette returns this summer. 

Are you looking forward to seeing Jesse Palmer host The Bachelorette? 

The Bachelor is currently on hiatus on ABC.

  1. It was like watching him heard cats! Sean Lowe, a successful member of the Bachelor, would have been a great candidate, but he’s not a super jock fame w***e.
    Chris Harrison could have kept it real and in control, but no one at ABC wanted to have that conversation. Too bad we’re left watching this roller-coaster shake and rattle apart.

    • Sean would NOT even consider the gig…..he wants to distance himself and family from the franchise….plus they had residuals from the commercials they did after they won and became parents….now they want privacy

  2. I love to watch women support other women!! Tayshia and Kaitlin were great hosts. Definitely will miss them giving advice to the new Bachelorettes 😐

  3. This show has gone down hill, I don’t think the girls were the best, but neither do I like Jessie….need someone else he doesn’t fit the bill….just saying

  4. I still miss Chris Harrison- he was the best- Jesse totally stepped up and I like him as the host – the girls had to go- they were so annoying. Good luck Jesse-

  5. I couldn’t stand Tayshia or Kaitlyn. They were so annoying and acted like they were in high school. I do like Jesse because at least he isn’t into everyone’s business but is there to support.
