Although Caila Quinn was rumored to get the gig, host Chris Harrison surprised fans during the live show with the news that JoJo is next in line to hand out roses. The audience was thrilled with the announcement and Ben Higgins told Chris that JoJo is a “great choice.”
Filming for the upcoming season starts this month, so expect to hear about some of the guys who will try to win JoJo’s heart in the coming weeks. One name already surfacing online is Jordan Rodgers, the younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Although Ben broke JoJo’s heart when he sent her home on the Bachelor season finale, four months have passed and it’s clear after her conversation with Ben on the ATFR that she is ready to move on and find a love story of her own.

During the After The Final Rose special, JoJo smartly warded off potential tabloid gossip and stated that she is “good friends” with Ben’s bride-to-be Lauren Bushnell and is happy for the newly engaged couple.
Get ready for another season of drama and hopefully happy ending for JoJo Fletcher — Season 12 of The Bachelorette premieres on May 23 on ABC.
