'Bachelorette': DeAnna and Jesse, Engaged in Conversation

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You said many times that Jason and Jesse brought out different sides of you. What was the most important thing that Jesse brought out in you?
DEANNA: He has definitely made me a little more relaxed. He brings out this easygoing side. I'm not a morning person, things easily upset me, and he definitely brought out the side of me that just lets me know that it's okay and that there's no sense in wasting time acting like that. He just makes me a much better person.

Did you watch any of the show together?
JESSE: We actually made a pact that we weren't going to watch any of the show together, but last night we did sit down in front of the TV and drank some champagne and watched the whole episode together.

And what did you think of your portrayal on the show?
JESSE: I'm me, and what you see is what you get. I don't change for anyone. I don't think even if you did try and edit me that I could be edited. I'm just a pretty normal guy, your average Joe, and I think that's what you saw on TV.

So, DeAnna, what do you think of that ring?
DEANNA: Oh, God, it's beautiful, and I can't stop staring at it. I'm staring at it right now as I'm talking to you. It's absolutely perfect; everything that I've always wanted.

Jesse, how'd you know to pick out that 2.3-carat rock?
JESSE: I didn't. I went in there and just picked out a ring that I liked, and it just so happened that we have the same taste in rings.

DeAnna, is there one thing about Jesse that drives you insane?
DEANNA: [Laughing] He's always been single, you know, so he has his routine first thing when he wakes up in the morning and all he does is get up, make coffee, and sit down in front of the computer to start answering e-mails and doing his business, and that drives me up the wall. I'm like, geesh — get up and get awake first before you start ignoring me.

How about you, Jesse?
JESSE: The one thing is that she's a very busy and popular woman and she's on her phone either e-mailing, texting, or talking, and trying to carry on a conversation with her while she's doing that drives me insane.

How excited are you that ABC gave you that honeymoon gift to go to Greece?
DEANNA: We're ecstatic. It's always been a dream of mine to get to Greece, and I would love to go with my entire family, and this just makes it that much better. It was a long, hard road, and the outcome is just better than I could ever imagine, and that ABC gave us that gift is awesome.
