In “Closing Time,” Semisonic sings that “every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end,” so we all shouldn’t be sad that Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor is over. The end of The Bachelor means that a new season of The Bachelorette is not that far away! At the After The Final Rose show, Chris Harrison, as he usually does, announced that JoJo Fletcher is going to be the new Bachelorette. So, when does JoJo's season of The Bachelorette start filming? Well, we know it'll air May 23, to begin with!
That means our lovely lady will have to begin filming pretty soon. Texan JoJo Fletcher is 25, really close with her family, and has two older brothers who wanted to pummel Ben when he met them. That's not all, though — JoJo is vivacious and fun. I mean, she showed up on the first night of The Bachelor in one of those rubber unicorn heads. If JoJo doesn't have a sense of humor, I don't know who does. We also saw a real soft side of JoJo on the show — she just wants someone to love her as much as she loves them, and though she didn't find that with Ben, she could find it on The Bachelorette.
According to Bachelor blog Reality Steve, filming for The Bachelorette usually starts a day or two after the finale of The Bachelor . This makes sense, because The Bachelor and its spinoffs have a pretty set cadence — The Bachelor in the winter, The Bachelorette in the spring, and Bachelor In Paradise/Bachelor Pad in the late summer, all broken up with seasons of Dancing With The Stars. Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette started airing on May 18, 2015, so let’s assume that JoJo’s season would start airing around there, too.
More proof that filming for The Bachelorette will start very, very soon: Bachelor franchise staple Ashley Iaconetti recently posted a picture on her Instagram of herself and Naz Perez, who is a producer on The Bachelor and its ilk. Ashley said that she would really miss Perez when she left to go film The Bachelorette, so that has to be coming up fast
Easy come, easy go — where one season of The Bachelor ends, a season of The Bachelorette is ready to take its place. Reality Steve reported that all of the men have been chosen and are ready to show that they’re in it for “the right reasons,” so sit tight, Bachelorette fans — you shouldn't have long to wait for a new season.
