Anderson also revealed on the podcast that she had quit her job, saying, "I had to quit, we've just been so busy, I felt like it wasn't fair to my job, you know, juggling between all of this and not being able to focus on the project at hand."

The couple decided to shack up with two of Anderson's girlfriends while they get their bearings, moving into a four-bedroom, three-bathroom house where Anderson lived before her stint on The Bachelor.

“He was just living with his sister, so I was like, ‘You can move in with me,'” Anderson said. “I have a very big room, and my roommates were all in."

"They’re like, ‘We can’t wait to get to know Joey,’" she continued, describing the living scenario as "kinda like a New Girl situation.”

Despite the money troubles, Anderson said her fiancée was supporting her financially after she left her job, telling Tartick, "Joey’s my security blanket."

Graziadei agreed, adding, “I think what I’m most excited about is the ability to be around each other so much. We finally will be able to just do small things together.”
