“The internet — it’s amazing,” he said.
Asked about maintaining a private life post-Bachelor, the Nashville resident acknowledged it wasn’t easy.
“I’m amazed how smart the internet is,” he said. “Because I just assume everyone on Twitter is an idiot, and then I’m like, ‘Wow!’ ”
As fans of the adorable, unexpected couple are well aware, Hyland, 26, and Adams, 33, began flirting on Twitter this summer during his stint as the bartender in Paradise — but Hyland had been vocal about her not-so-secret crush on the radio DJ since his time vying for JoJo Fletcher‘s heart on season 12 of The Bachelorette in 2016.

Hyland and Wells took their relationship public this Halloween, dressing up as characters from Stranger Things together and posting plenty of photos on Instagram — but don’t expect them to be sharing too many more details beyond that.
“There’s nothing really to say,” he said Wednesday. “Like, if you want to know — to be fair, if you want to know anything, just look on my social media.”
Adams also revealed the two are already planning next year’s couple costume together.
“We did talk about next year’s one, and we’ve got a really good [idea],” he said. “It’s definitely in the vein of two things that we love dearly, and gender-bending happens again.”
Asked about rumors he was in the running to be the next Bachelor before Arie Luyendyk Jr. was cast, Adams said he never thought it would happen — and he’s totally okay with that,
“It’s just funny how things turn out,” he said. “I’m really happy I didn’t do it.”
And Hyland is probably pretty pleased, too. The actress documented herself watching Adams’ interview on her Instagram story, excitedly announcing that she had received hosts Claudia Oshry (a.k.a. @girlwithnojob on Instagram) and her sister Jackie Oshry’s “stamp of approval.”
“So, I’m listening to the Morning Breath podcast — I kind of like, really love these girls,” she said. “I’ve been obsessed with them for the past couple of weeks.”
