Many watched as Bachelor Ben Higgins gave the final rose to Lauren and proposed to her, after sending JoJo Fletcher away in the limo, heartbroken after Ben told her that he loved her... but he loved somebody else more. JoJo didn't have to stay heartbroken for too long, though, because she received an invitation to be the new Bachelorette. Now it's her turn to go breaking hearts.
JoJo told People Magazine about her experience on the show, "It was really hard for me, but when I got home I took a couple of weeks to myself to think about everything... I learned so much and now I know what I want and I know what I deserve."
Even though poor JoJo was left wondering where things went wrong, she held herself with much grace and composure on the After the Final Rose show. She said, "I was super nervous but he explained it well and I have closure. I'm friends with Lauren and I think the world of Ben, and seeing them together, it made a lot more sense than I thought it would be."
Filming has already begun for JoJo's season of The Bachelorette. Mike Fleiss, creator and executive producer of the show tweeted updates from the filming, saying,"JoJo still has 20 great guys from which to choose. I think she's gonna find love... #Bachelorette," and "Today's update: JoJo and the remaining 20 men are all in bed. Don't get any crazy ideas. It was a long night. #wrongsideofsunrise." According to his twitter account, they will be giving updates all season.
Reality Steve has already posted some spoilers of five of the guys who are supposed to be amongst the ones fighting for JoJo's heart. One is Jordan Rodgers, who is 27, from Nashville, TN. He is the brother of the quarterback of Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers. He was also in the "riff off" scene in Pitch Perfect 2 with some other Green Bay Packer players. There is also a 29-year-old, Jon Hamilton from Vancouver, British Columbia. He's an HVAC sales representative. Sal DeJulio, 27, is from Fort Lauderdale, FL. He is an Operations Manager for a home building company. Paul Tappon, 29, from Denver, CO, is a marketing manager at Red Robin, and co-founder of a fantasy sports league called Rotowar.com. Also, there is a RE/MAX real estate agent from Dallas TX- Chad Thedford, who is 25 or 26. Steve notes that he is friends with JoJo on Facebook, but JoJo is also a real estate agent in the Dallas area. Maybe they know each other?
When asked if she'll tell more than one of her bachelors that she loves them, JoJo said, "I guess I'll see when I get there. I understand loving two people at once but I definitely will make sure that it's exactly what I'm feeling before I say it. Because I know what it's like to have that said to you and then to potentially be disappointed and let down. So I'll be cautious of that."
Will JoJo find lasting love on her season of The Bachelorette, which premieres in May? Keep checking in to learn more!
