As per The Sun, Justin took to his Instagram Stories to share the details of the incident. He wrote, “What we were doing was we were both flirting. Well, I was flirting with the chef because he was cute, and I was pushing her out of the way so I could have a one-on-one moment with the chef.”

He had a big smile on his face & inched closer to the cook in an attempt to flirt with him throughout the segment. However, Justin’s smile faded away quickly as Jenna started touching him on his shoulders and upper back. As Andy explained the process of making the glaze, Justin instantly shimmied out of her touch. She kept doing this again and again until he physically pushed her away.

After this, Jenna looked at the camera and gave a funny smile while staying invested in the chef’s explanation.

“He tried to be nice the first time, then had to use force the second time,” commented another.

Speculating what might have happened behind the scene, a third explained, “He non-verbally alerted her that her touches were unwanted. It’s his body; he doesn’t need a reason why he didn’t want it touched by her.”
