JoJo Fletcher Is “The Bachelorette” – Watch Announcement Video!
JoJo Fletcher is the new “Bachelorette,” it was announced on Monday’s live “The Bachelor: After The Final Rose” special. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop reported, multiple outlets said earlier this month that Caila Quinn was slated to be the lead on the upcoming season of “The Bachelorette.” Quinn, who was the third-to-last girl left on this season of “The Bachelor,” was even recently seen filming in her Ohio hometown. But Gossip Cop only rated the information a “7” on our rumor scale, as ABC would not confirm the speculation, and there’s been a few past instances in which someone has taped a package for the show, only to ultimately not get the gig. And that’s apparently what happened here. Now the Dallas-based real estate developer told Chris Harrison on the live after-show that being The Bachelorette is “crazy,” but that she’s excited.”
Fletcher, of course, is Ben Higgins’ runner-up. On the “Bachelor” finale, which aired just before the “After The Final Rose” broadcast, he broke up with her and instead proposed to Lauren B. Fletcher appeared devastated after getting dumped, but that was taped in November.The 24-year-old, whose real first name is Joelle, will likely start shooting her “Bachelorette” season in the coming weeks, if not days. She follows in the footsteps of Kaitlyn Bristowe (2015, season 11), Andi Dorfman (2014, season 10), and Desiree Hartsock (2013, season 9).
The announcement that Fletcher will be the 2016 “Bachelorette” for season 12 came from Chris Harrison just after she had the chance to confront Higgins over their failed relationship. Check out the clip below!
