What's JoJo's Secret On 'The Bachelorette'? The Truth Could Impact Her Entire Season
There are a few things Bachelor Nation can count on: Silly contestant professions in the season premiere, Chris Harrison hyperbolizing "the most dramatic finale" at the end of each season, and the wholly unreliable promos for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. At the end of this week's two-part episode (accurately dubbed "a double dose of Chad") the promo for week four teased a big revelation from the Bachelorette herself, JoJo. She has some "truth" she needs to share. But, what secret is JoJo keeping on The Bachelorette and how will it go over with her suitors? That was the topic of debate on this week's installment of Bustle's Bachelor podcast.
On this episode of Will You Accept This Podcast?, Romper TV Editor Allison Piwowarski and Bustle Entertainment Editor Kelsea Stahler discuss the promo for the next episode of The Bachelorette and what JoJo could possibly be referring to when she says, "I would hate for any of them to walk away from this not knowing the truth." This particular comment from JoJo is spliced with her telling the guys, "There's a reason for you to be worried," as well as her crying on Jordan's shoulder, saying, "I came here to find someone to spend my life with." Now, there's no guarantee all these scenes actually go together (remember: these promos are unreliable!) but it certainly seems as though JoJo has something important to tell the contestants, something that could affect the entire season going forward.
So what do you think it is? Allison and Kelsea theorize JoJo's secret has something to do with where she is emotionally on The Bachelorette. That makes complete sense since she started filming the season not too long after wrapping up her time on Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor — where, need I remind you, he told JoJo he loved her, but not as much as he loved Lauren.
However, since JoJo is shown crying and saying, "I hate him," in what seems the be the same dress she's wearing when she reveals that she wants her suitors to know the truth, I have a feeling she's talking about someone or something else. Could it be Chad from The Bachelorette? That seems to be what the promo wants us to think. But, it could also be JoJo's other ex named Chad. Or, someone else entirely. Perhaps she goes on a particularly awful one-on-one date. Unfortunately, it could be anything, since we all know how tricky these promos can be.
Even the Season 12 Bachelorette promo that was released after the premiere episode, which features some extended versions of the scenes in this week's promo, doesn't offer much more insight into what JoJo could be telling her guys. Maybe it's that she's still working through her breakup with Ben, or maybe something happens within the episode that she's reacting to. For now, we'll just have to wait and watch — and maybe come up with some more theories during The Bachelorette's week off so this mystery doesn't drive us crazy.
