James Taylor's Song For JoJo On 'The Bachelorette' Helps Her Cross That Friendship Line
There are still a lot of guys left on The Bachelorette this season, but I'm already starting to have my favorites, and one of them is James Taylor. If you feel the same way, there's good news: He snagged a one-on-one date on Monday night's episode, and it was the cutest one of the season so far. James Taylor sang a song for JoJo after an adorable swing dancing date, and they may actually be the cutest couple ever.
First, they took dance lessons from a woman who fell in love with and married her dance partner. Things were a little shaky at first, but soon, they were ready to dance among a crowd of professionals, and they actually looked pretty good doing it — like, not at all like they'd just had their first dance lesson a few minutes earlier. After seeing hot air balloon after hot air balloon on this show, it was actually kind of refreshing to see a date that was actually a little different. And OK, how adorable is James? I don't know if it's because he seems so pure of heart or if it's his southern accent, but there's something so endearing about him — even if JoJo wasn't 100 percent sure they could be more than friends.
And then, he only further sealed his place in my heart when he whipped out a guitar during the second part of their date and started singing a song he wrote about heartbreak that he thought JoJo would be able to relate to after everything she went through with Ben on The Bachelor last season. If James had any idea that she was questioning whether or not she could be interested in him romantically, he knew exactly what to do to change her mind. Before long, they were making out in the back of a classic car. Not too shabby, James Taylor!
Is it OK if every one-on-one date involves this guy for the rest of the season? He may not be the most drama-inducing contestant this season, but he may just be the sweetest. And isn't that what really counts?
