“An all expenses paid trip to Los Angeles courtesy of Jabot? Count. Me. In!” tweeted Mealor earlier this week, commenting on a promo package released by the network highlighting the upcoming crossover. A scene from King and Mealor’s appearance on “B&B” was released today by CBS which finds their characters fresh off their first night in Los Angeles preparing for a meeting with Wyatt Spencer (“B&B’s” Darin Brooks).
