“I want to talk about that egg,” the Bachelor star began. His fiance chimed in to say it was “embarrassing” for her to be in the room during EggGate.

Joey explained that the egg breaking was not his fault, claiming that eggs in Mexico were different. Kelsey teased her fiance by saying she could crack an egg with one hand.

He went on to encourage her to talk about the homemade gnocchi that he made for her. It seems that Joey is still upset over fans trolling his cooking skills.
