“Sweet Home Alabama” ended last week, but fans still want to know how Paige Duke and Jeremiah Korfe are doing after the show. Today I was given the chance to interview Paige and talk to Jeremiah a bit about their current status and time on the show. Oklahoma City fans will be excited to know the two are still together and going strong.
Paige says that she knew from the start of the show that Jeremiah and Bubba would be there until the end. Jeremiah and Bubba even had a talk about how much they are alike and thought that if one stayed so would the other.
Jeremiah started leaving Paige love notes in her boots that she left on the beach one day. He left her seven letters, but after that production did not want them to carry out their love story on paper. The two kept writing letters to each other and exchanged them when the show ended. This made watching it on television a lot easier on the happy couple.
Their families knew the entire time the show was airing that they were in love and happy together. Paige and Jeremiah have seen each other several times, but they had to hide out inside to do it.
Jeremiah still has the ring that he bought to give his fiance one day. He said he did not bring it out on the show because he did not want Paige to see the ring for the first time on television. He is saving it for the right time. Jeremiah is a traditional man and would not have felt right giving her a ring without asking her father for her hand in marriage. It does sound like a proposal will be coming in the future.
Paige shared a scripture that her grandmama shared with her.
. Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I meet Jeremiah in the 11th month, in 2011 and he is 29 years old. Wheww!
It sounds like this couple is meant to be and everything with them happened for a reason. Paige has been working at Kruger Farms which is just an hour and 15 minutes from Jeremiah’s home in Minnesota. The couple is spending as much time together as possible.
Paige wants her fans to know that she did the best job she could to not lead on the other guys, but to still give us a show like she was asked to do. She said that she really did enjoy her time with the other guys, but it was as friends and not love like she has with Jeremiah.
When the show finished airing, Paige Duke was in Canada for a fishing trip. She watched the show with some fans at an appearance and as soon as it showed that Jeremiah won he came out to join them. He played some music for the crowd and Paige said it was her first time to see him perform live and she loved it. They will be going to the ACM awards this upcoming weekend.
Paige and Jeremiah are keeping fans up to date on their Facebook and Twitter pages.
