Joe Amabile and Kendall Long met on season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise. They dated on the show, but did not leave the show together. Initially Kendall broke Joe’s heart and left. She realized afterwards she wanted Joe in her life and rushed to his home to try and salvage their relationship. By the time the Paradise reunion show taped and aired Joe and Kendall were an official couple. Now a year later they are still going strong.
Joe Amabile admits he is close to proposing
Hollywood Life shared news that Joe is getting really close to proposing to Kendall. Joe shared the news at the Smile Train Wold Smile World Smile Day Pool Party on September 15. He said, “It could come any day.” Kendall also chimed in and said the couple talks about getting engaged often. She says they are not afraid of it at all.
Even though they talk about getting engaged, Kendall says Joe has promised her the proposal would be a surprise. Joe said, “Of course it’s going to be a surprise!” he continued, “I mean, it has to be.”
Kendall and Joe are adapting to their life together
The couple is currently adjusting to their new life together. Joe and Kendall recently moved in together in West Hollywood. Joe explained, “Dating in the real world is so much different than dating on television.” He continued, “We clicked on TV, but once we started really dating out here, it just always worked. It was always very natural. And I enjoy every day!”
Joe and Kendall were at the Smile Train event to promote Joe’s collaboration with Alan Bersten. The two created Frown Clothing, which donates a portion of proceeds to Smile Train. Joe said, “We really want to promote happiness and smiling. Being in the world of social media…it can get very negative. I think [Smile Train] is a great charity. It’s a sustainable charity, which I love. Cleft is such a serious condition — it hurts speaking, breathing, hearing, eating. It could cost as cheap as $250 to fix it, which I feel like is such a low number to actually change a child’s life.”
Kendall has some advice for season 6 couples on Bachelor in Paradise
Kendall is hoping the new couples that formed this season on Bachelor in Paradise can make it in the real world. She says to make it work they need to block out the outside world sometimes. She said, “Don’t listen to the outside noise and everyone else’s outside opinion. Just look within each other. You have to have trust — most important thing. I think we established trust really early on in our relationship and that’s what really helped us do that, because everything is so open. So yeah, just trust each other.”
