Debby Ryan Is Getting Married...on 'Jessie'!

Debby Ryan Is Getting Married...on 'Jessie'!

It’s official — Debby Ryan is tying the knot with Pierson Fode, on Jessie that is.

“Jessie is an adult, and we felt we could tackle this in a way that still feels appropriate for our audience,” Adam Bonnett, Disney Channel executive vice president of original programming shared with ABC News.

The 21-year-old TV nanny and her new love, 25-year-old Brooks (Fode), is very much a whirlwind romance as the couple is seen out on picnics in Central Park and on movie dates and in other such innocent moments.

“The way we deal with this romance is very pure Disney fairy tale,” Bonnett continued, and one with a surprise ending.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Jessie and Brooks getting hitched?

    Terrible idea. What is Disney trying to show for these young adult girls? That just because they get a marriage proposal that they have to say “yes”? As much as I don’t condone young marriages, I feel that Jessie has a lot of growing up to do before she knows what true love is. She needs to figure herself out. Her career. Is acting really met for her. All of that.

    Besides what does she know about this new love interest of hers anyways? Aside from the fact that he’s good looking and has good taste in woman? Nothing. Jessie has a bad history with men, so what makes the audience think she can pull this off?

    Furthermore, after watching this show, it’s pretty obvious this show isn’t going anywhere if the main character gets married. What is going to happen with the kids? Who is going to be their nanny? What is in store for the kids future? What is in store for Jessie? Will she quit acting and live a different lifestyle far away from NY? Will her father/new family force her to come back home? Or better yet stop her from getting married? These are things the writers should be focused on besides making Jessie getting married. Either cancel the show or take the show in a different direction that is appropriate for kids, teens, and adults to watch. Cause it’s obvious the writers and creators of the show are taking this to account because the show isn’t going anywhere with the same childish antics.

    I agree that this is a bad idea. What are the writers thinking? And I was kind of hoping they would revisit Tony. It’s Disney!!!

  • crystal

    ?? Thats a terrible idea, I seriously thought it was a joke at first
    Disney should just cancel this show :/

  • DAMIAN

    Omg What The Heck Is Going On Debby Ryan Is Getting Married to her pierson fode that is good for them god bless you damian ellis

  • javi

    on paper its probably a good idea. they could do a spin off of that relationship instead of her being a nanny she could play a young wife. plus its disney they are not going to show anything sexualy. it would be like in the 50′s when husbands and wires slept in different beds. and there was no kissing in public.

  • Lily

    No bad idea … Just cancel the show….i always thought they bring jessie and tony back together..

  • m

    The end of that show.

  • Mina

    Really? How many episodes have I missed that Jessie is getting married now.. And I had NO idea she was 22, she doesn’t really act that way. I’m 21 and thought she was max 19 or 20. What are they thinking? I really did like the show but haven’t been watching the recent episodes.

  • Sharon

    I always felt that Disney was trying to give the ax to a lot of its semi older shows, so I’m definitely not surprised. They are trying to bring in the newer shows, which most of them suck anyway.

  • Abbie

    That sounds like a bad idea!

  • Karma

    Disney and their stupid ideas…

  • Connie

    @amber: I agree with Amber 100% !!! I wanted Tony and Jesse to get back together … Have Jesse marry Tony instead … this way Jesse can still work for the Ross’s while Tony still works as a door man or maybe Tony can have a better job doing something else !!!

  • angie

    what about tony

    Cute :)

    honestly guys, it’s not really about the dress, or the wedding, it’s about them being young and making decisions, keep in mind Jessie (the character is 22, not saying that is old enough to get married). The viewers aren’t worrying about getting proposed too.

    I honestly think that i will make a good story line and if the season 4 gets renewed, maybe we see Jessie admitting she was too young and decides too end it. I mean it’ll definitely be new. I mean they never said the marriage would last or that they will actually go through with it.

    Maybe Jessie realizes she needs the kids or maybe the kids get old enough and don’t need a nanny.

    (p.s. and I’m pretty sure half the people watching don’t watch or know people who watch the show anyway)

    I guess the real problem is, not knowing how Disney will handle it, but come on guys it’s a kids network, they wont do too much.

  • http://twitter.com/Poppi5 Lisha :)

    @Mina:

    I think it’s actually makes for a great story-line if handled well, she is 22. It teach kids about making wise choices and maybe it doesn’t last and Jessie learns a lesson :o

  • John

    You know, I was really hoping that this was just a late April Fools joke, but I agree with others on here. Just how many feathers is Disney planning to ruffle up over this? They’re going to have all sorts of “family” organizations all over them for this announcement. What a ludicrous move. Why don’t they just come out and say that they support young marriages, they might as well now. What’s next? Is someone from “Austin & Ally” going to get married as well? Who really watches these shows anyway besides 8-10 yr. old boys and girls? Quite a positive message for them all, Disney! I bet you’re going to have some real “happy” parents now!

  • rr

    I guess Tony the door man couldn’t ring her bells.

  • AMYDumasisqueen

    Then only thing I have a problem with is she probably won’t know him for a lone time if there are doing it in just a few episodes. Each season equal about one year which isn’t enough time to just get married. Other than that I don’t see there problem. If she is 22 and found her “love”, why can’t see can’t she get married?

  • brittany

    Has she known this new guy? I’ve not heard of him. If she got married I think it would be Tony. I would like to see what they do to make her fall so hard so fast.

  • http://luv_tbs Christie

    I think it’s a good idea to tackle a young adult topic. Disney has a habit of making child stars and keeping them in childrens roles that they have to live up to and then when they finally break from Disney or try to grow up outside of Disney they don’t handle the transition well because they have always been treated on screen as a child. Just look at Miley for all the proof you need of that. Way to go Disney for finally being responsible in how you treat your budding stars. It isn’t going to scar children to watch a young woman get engaged and eventually married. It happens in real life why not on a Disney show?

  • Alexandria

    @crystal: no they shouldn’t if you don’t like it tell them to change the idea or something not cancel the whole dreaming show. Goodness people I hate what the world has come to!

  • kaSSIDY

    No don’t do it!!!!!! what about college?

  • Kassidy

    sorry it messed up my name

  • Debby

    Guys calm down! I didn’t think it was a good idea either. I wanted to keep this show going how it’s going. Also I’m not going to play that role in that episode if it makes my viewers and fans upset. I love you guys and after you did so much to me I have to give you something back. Thanks for the comments and keep watching to find out what’s next!

  • http://lanasayyd Lana

    NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOO!!!
    It should be Tony not that guy since when did Jessie know that guy??
    Tony and Jessie should get back together and get married =(
    They ruined the show =’(

  • peyton

    Erase this post because its giving s lot if hate to Jessie if I worked as a manager or assistant for Disney shows I would sew this

  • marisol

    Disney should reconsider and have Tony marry Jessie.

  • Patricia JUSTICE

    See guys? People DO read our comments
    @Debby: Debby, you are so talented. I loved you on Suite Life and on Jessie. However, in Jessie, your character changed. You don’t really care about your job on Jessie and EVERYONE is mean to you, Bertram, and Ravi. Jessie, get married is NOT a good way to end the show especially not after all the hard work you’ve done on the show. If the directors tell you you HAVE to marry someone, let it be Tony, not just some random guy who’s waltzing his way onto the show, it’s last season.
    Just, stay true to who you are, Debby.
    P.s. Why was stephanie scott only on one episode?

  • Grace

    What about Tony? He was so sweet

  • Allie0701

    This is a terrible idea if she is going to get married she should marry tony that way the show can still go on and she can still be their nanny the character on the show is 22 I believe that is too young to get married. Because there are only a few episodes left I don’t think Disney can pull it off.

  • Kaylee

    I dont see what the HUGE deal is.”Jessie” was eventually gonna get married somewhere in the future, she is at a good age, and they have a good way to end the show now. Jessie deserves a happy ending with someone she fell in love with. i would have liked Tony to be the groom but you know what? whatever. Disney has a creative and appropriate imagination. Let them do their job.

  • Cassie

    I think that if they are going to get married on the show they should introduce him a few episodes before they get married in the show other wise people are going to be totally lost if all the sudden Jessie get married and I bet Luke aka Cameron Boyce will do everything in his power to keep Jessie from getting married I also wished that Tony and Jessie would get back I bet a lot of Jessie fans and myself and my sisters will be devastated hey I’m only 12 and that concludes my comment thank you I am farkle man I love girl meets world and Disney channel????????????????

  • CeliaC

    Wow. I just saw a comment on here that suggests that a bunch of young adult girls copy of of Disney. Young adult girls and younger have time to grow up and make their own decisions. I doubt that Disney channel shows¬†influence young adults or learn anything from it. I know I don’t. I won’t complain . This is exciting. The girl who is extremely bad with boys getting married. Jessie was always awkward to me anyways…

    Could someone please answer this?: Did Jessie go to college right after high school, is she planning to after marriage, or is she not going to college at all?!

  • The believer????

    I think that it’s Debby’s choice to see if she wants to get together with tony because they are friends and I know they knew each other a very long time but I think she knew the guys she is marrying she knew longer so I think everyone should leave Debby alone and live her life???? she is happy the way she is. Everyone just give her some space and let her do her own thing. All the people whoever is giving negative comments should just stop and let her live her life????.

  • ????????????we

    I for one believe that this is a terrible idea. As Krissy said above, what happens to the Ross kids? What will happen to the show? I think that out of all bad ideas Disney has this is the worst. Jessie is only about 20 years old if I’m not mistaken, and even though she is just a character she has more to experience before she gets married. And besides Disney is a kid friendly channel, so making a wedding episode for a show like this for a girl who just came out of her teenage years is absolutely terrible. If this wedding episode takes place I think fans might totally hate the idea. And if the is Disney’s desperate attempt to end the show…. We’ll lets say it’s not a good attempt.

    To end on a good note, I hope the episode does well despite my opinion. ????

  • AUTUMN GRIFFITH

    Great idea I love it

  • jessielover

    @crystal: look kids dont want the show.cancled so stop being a hater it is a great show so wat if u dont like it dosent mean no one does

  • Ahkeem

    What was the point of keeping Tony as a character of she is going to marry some no name dude ? (No offense) I expected that the moral of the story was even in a small world true love never fails which is what Tony and Jessie has at the end of the day , bringing in someone new to marry Jessie kills the suspense and drama of there relationship , if the surprise twist isn’t Tony stopping the wedding and confessing his love for Jessie , make it the last show y’all make.

  • Sophie

    Personally, I hate the idea of Jessie getting married. I like the fact that she’s moved on, but i have always liked the tony/ jessie pairing. Granted i’m not as big of a fan of the show as i was when it started, but i still care that it could end, just like that.

  • gennesis

    WHAT!! Jessie is still too young what is disney trying to show that they should forget about college and get married with someone as soon as possible.This is such a terrible idea. BESIDES what happens to Tony he has always been on the show and it is not fair that a new guy comes and suddenly marries Jessie.It is also a terrible idea because it is not fair that Jessie agrees to marry a rich guy and last time she freaked because she thought Tony was going to ask her ro marry her, why did she freak because she didn’t want to marry a “poor” guy. This show should just end

  • Taylor

    This is awful I tots agree with u guys. This is disney for gods sake!!!
    And she 21!! It’s going to change the show COMPLETLEY!! They might as well just cancel it. Jessie should be single. It makes the show so much more funny. I don’t know what the writers are thinking. I’m litterely depressed right now

  • Kayla

    NO this is a great idea they never do anything like this it will be different from all the other shows and i think it will be great because the same things get boring and then they cancel the show .Getting married on the show is the best idea they thought of.

  • cassidy

    Wow. Did anyone else notice she never said yes. She could still say no. But if she does say yes then I say great. She is in an adult role and saying yes isn’t the end of the world. It’s tv not real life. I myself got married young, 20 days before I even graduated high school and 3 days after my 18th birthday and that was almost 5 years ago, just cause her character is young doesn’t mean the marriage isn’t going to work out. Take a chill pill people

  • http://Facebook ????????????

    I honestly don’t want the show canceled but this would truly effect the show and I actually was hoping for her to either go back to tony or just stay single a marriage is just to much

  • http://Facebook Lexi

    @Debby: WOW some negative comments I didn’t like the whole getting married situation but,your an OUTSANDING actress and singer so even if your character does get married well, it’s not your fault and Jessie is a good show so I’m going to keep watching????????

  • http://Facebook Lexi

    Geez these are very negative comments I know your all mad but, maybe you guys just need to calm down Debby is still a very talented actress and this is not the proper way to express your feelings by leaving hurtful comments so if you have nothing kind to say then don’t say it at all

  • http://Facebook Lala

    Debby is still a wonderful actress there are sooo many people and children that look up to her so the haters can keep doing their thing but you just keep doing yours:)
