The First 'Bachelorette' Promo Puts JoJo In Control, Finally — VIDEO
You guys, it’s like Christmas! But better! The very first promo video for JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette aired during Dancing With The Stars, and while we didn’t get much information out of it (ABC plays it so close to the vest), we finally got to see JoJo taking charge of her own romantic destiny. Like any good Bachelorette promo, there were champagne toasts, roses, and a plethora of limo arrivals. Seriously, May 23, where are you?
The promo also provided some much-needed background into how JoJo got to this spot as The Bachelorette . For those of you who don’t watch The Bachelor or who have really bad memories (myself included), Bachelor Ben Higgins basically told JoJo he loved her and then picked Lauren Bushnell to be his future wife. JoJo was understandably heartbroken, since, you know, she got a declaration of love and then got dumped, and this season of The Bachelorette is putting JoJo in control of her own romantic destiny. This time, she’s doling out (or withholding, whatever she wants) the “I love you”s and the roses and the dates, and she’s looking dang good doing it (she has Connie Britton levels of amazing hair, doesn’t she?).
It really just leaves me wanting more — Bachelor and Bachelorette creator Mike Fleiss has been tweeting out mini spoilers from filming, but between that and this little clip of a video, it’s not enough. I can’t wait for May 23 — JoJo is going to make such an amazing Bachelorette, and you can bet your bottom dollar that she’s going to have a ton of fun doing it. Let’s just hope her overprotective brothers don’t scare off all of the suitors away again…
Best of luck finding love, JoJo! I know I can’t wait to see your helicopter rides and romantic, candlelit dinners.
