JoJo Fletcher will make her debut as The Bachelorette on May 23 and filming expected to get underway this week. Who are the guys who will try to win her heart and will we see some familiar faces from previous seasons return for a shot at finding love with JoJo?
At least 25 guys will greet JoJo at the Bachelor mansion when filming begins this week and it didn’t take long for the names and photos of several of her suitors to leak out online. In addition to five guys pictured below, there are also rumors that Nick Viall, JoJo’s ex-boyfriend Chad Rookstool, and Clint Arlis (Kaitlyn’s season) have been cast for the show.

Although ABC won’t confirm the cast list until closer to the premiere date, here’s a look at five of the guys fans may see on the 12th season of the Bachelorette and the latest scoop on the guys who are on the rumored list.
First thing’ first. Nick Viall, who was the runner-up on Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season, will not be part of the cast. Shortly after JoJo was introduced as the Bachelorette on Monday night, he vainly tweeted that “Jojo’s 25 new boyfriends can rest easy.”

What about Clinton Arlis, who spent more time with his pal JJ Lane than Kaitlyn Bristowe on Season 11 of the Bachelorette? He drew a portrait of Chris Harrison for Kaitlyn and it looks like he’s preparing one for JoJo, but there’s no confirmation (yet) that he’s part of the cast.

JoJo’s ex, Chad Rookstool, is another rumored contestant for the upcoming season, but Reality Steve quickly put an end to the gossip. It turns out that there is a Chad cast for the show, but his last name is Thedford. Interesting tidbit from Reality Steve — Chad Thedford lives in Texas and was friends with JoJo on Facebook until early Tuesday morning.
Here are four other guys that Reality Steve states have been cast to be on the Bachelorette. Whether they make it out of their hotel room and into the Bachelor mansion is still unknown, but expect plenty of spoilers as the filming gets underway.
Jordan Rodgers – Nashville, TN (brother of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers)
Paul Tappon — Denver, CO
Jon Hamilton — Vancouver, British Columbia
