Jasmine got to accompany the rest of the group sans Zack and Kristen Doute on Janet Caperna's baby moon. Zack was hurt enough by the exclusion to make a petty social media post out of spite while they were on the trip. Jasmine tried her best to advocate for Zack after seeing how hurt he was but to no avail. This, however, didn't stop her from attending the couples-only trip. While viewers haven't seen much of Jasmine's girlfriend yet, they will hopefully soon.
