Don’t lie and say you haven’t thought at least ONCE during this whole season of The Bachelorette about Jake’s pinky ring.
The 30-year-old was rarely seen without the signature ring on the pinky finger of his right hand.
So, naturally, it was one of the first things we asked Jake when we learned he hadn't made it into Georgia's final two (besides, ARE YOU OKAY?). And we were totally unprepared for the emotional answer.
Listen to the latest episode of Bach Chat, the podcast where we talk all things Bachelorette.
"The ring has absolute priceless sentimental value to me and my family," Jake told me.
"It's actually been hard seeing a lot of the memes where people have given me a hard time about it.
"Myself, my brother and my dad, we have initials on a gold ring and that gold ring is melted down from my grandmother's gold after she passed away. My dad has had his for years and my brother and I both got our rings when we turned 21. It's got a lot of meaning, very much so."
