10 Things To Know About The New Docu-Series ‘Jillian & Justin’
Former Bachelorette and host of Love it or List It Vancouver is returning to the small screen, but this time with her fiance, Justin Pasutto, her dog Nacho and their new baby, Leo! The new show titled Jillian & Justin will air as a four part docu-series on the W Network and features all of the crazy experiences they’ve had in the past year, including the renovation and design of their dream home, the birth of their son, their engagement and now the filming of their new show! Jillian & Justin premieres on Wednesday, June 21, so here’s a look at 10 things to know about the new docu-series!
10. What the Show was Supposed to be About
Jillian & Justin was originally supposed to be a show about the renovation of their new home in Kelowna, B.C., but after the camera crew spent a few days with Jillian and Justin they decided they wanted to change it to a documentary style show. “After the cameras spent a couple days with us, the network came back and said there’s a lot of good stuff here, but we don’t want to do this show with you anymore. We’d rather do a documentary. So, Justin and I said, ‘OK,'” said Jillian in an interview with Vancouver Sun.
9. Justin Invited the Camera Crew
According to Jillian, the production team asked if they could be apart of her labor and delivery, but she was adamant in her decision to keep that part of their life private. In an interview with ET Canada, she said: “I said, ‘absolutely not, no way. This is a private moment between Justin and I and we already share so much, I don’t want to share any of it.'” But when she went into labor two weeks early, it was Justin who caved and invited the camera crew to the hospital with them (without asking Jillian). After he’d already called them up, he then convinced her it would be an amazing experience to share — and turns out it was!
