Marry Me’s Justin Sylvester took to Instagram to talk about it and explain why he pushed Jenna Bush Hager on a recent episode of The Today Show.
He posted a video explaining that Jenna hadn’t invaded his personal space and that people would “jump to conclusions.”
On Wednesday, while watching the show, the two were trying to learn how to cook a recipe. In a video clip from the segment, Justin tried to get away from the Today show host when Jenna got closer to him.
Jenna didn’t seem to understand what was going on until Justin gave her a little nudge. People watching the show noted the moment and said Jenna was “invading” Justin’s room.
Justin Sylvester made it clear that he told Jenna Bush Hager to “spend some alone time with the chef.”
While getting a facial, the Daily Pop host decided to speak up about what happened and uploaded a video which reads:
“People thought she was going to get in my way, but that’s not true.”
He said he tried to flirt with the chef and that he pushed Jenna “out of the way” because he wanted a “one-on-one moment.” Here’s what Justin Sylvester said:
“We were flirting with each other. “…well, I was flirting with the chef because he was so cute, and I pushed her out of the way so I could talk to the chef alone, and people got it wrong.”
He said that “people jumped to conclusions” and said Jenna was the “nicest, most welcoming” person he’s ever met.
Justin Sylvester also said that Jenna and her co-host Hoda Kotb always ask him to be on the Today Show because they are “so good” to him.
He also said that Jenna is “amazing” and that he doesn’t like “that people aren’t taking the event to the right place.”

Jenna patted Justin on the back, then held his shoulders and tried to wrap her hands around his arm. During this time, Justin attempted to push the innkeeper away with his arm before finally using his hand to do so.
