Successful and stunning real estate developer JoJo Fletcher, gets a second chance at her happily-ever-after, choosing from twenty-six handsome bachelors. JoJo first stole America’s heart on Ben Higgins’ season of “The Bachelor,” where she charmed both Ben and Bachelor Nation with her bubbly personality and sweet, girl-next-door wit and spunk. Ultimately, JoJo was left heartbroken in Jamaica when Ben chose to let her go in one of the most emotionally gut-wrenching finales ever. But that experience didn’t stop her desire to find her perfect soul mate – it only made it stronger.
Feeling confused and blindsided, JoJo, 25, not only had to deal with the emptiness of walking away from the future she envisioned with Ben, but the aftermath of the crushing breakup, knowing that a part of her would always love him. After returning home to Dallas, JoJo found solace in the love of her parents, three older brothers and sister After being devastated last season by a shocking rejection from Bachelor Ben Higgins, who confessed his love to both her and Lauren Bushnell, the Texan beauty is ready to leave that heartbreak behind and write her very own love story as the Bachelorette.
JoJo will embarked on her own journey to find her soul mate starring in the 12th edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series, “The Bachelorette,” which premiered Monday May 23 on ABC.
In the season premiere, a long, exciting night awaits JoJo. First, a trio of former Bachelorettes: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Desiree Hartsock Siegfried and Ali Fedotowsky, return to offer some practical advice on how JoJo should handle the jitters, drama and emotional pitfalls as she searches for her future husband. They warn her that there is a big difference between chemistry and love.
JoJo is blown away by the lengths some of the bachelors go to create a memorable first impression. One southern gentleman uses his guitar to charm JoJo with a song he wrote for her. A DJ brings a classic R&B group, All-4-One, to serenade her. One shy man shows off his Scottish heritage – and legs – by wearing a kilt. But one bachelor really stands out by riding in on a unicorn, harkening back to JoJo’s own entrance on “The Bachelor.”
JoJo has an open heart and a new perspective on the possibilities of finding true love. Will she face the unpredicatble heartache of falling in love with more than one man? All she is sure of is that she found love once with Ben and feels sure that this second time will be her charm and she wants everyone to come along for the ride.
