JoJo Fletcher on Not Getting the Final Rose from Ben Higgins: ‘That Breakup Is Cold Turkey'
New “The Bachelorette” star JoJo Fletcher talked only to “Extra's” Renee Bargh while shooting the 12th season of the show.
The 25-year-old real estate developer opened up about what it felt like the night Ben Higgins proposed to Lauren instead of her on live TV. She said, “You end this whirlwind romance that you're in and you get forced to go back home, and you're in reality again and it's cold turkey, that breakup is cold turkey, you stop talking and that's it.”
Now everyone is talking about JoJo being the one to choose by the 25 men who are vying for her love and affection. She reportedly beat out Caila for the honor, saying, “To hear Chris Harrison announce me, it was such a crazy feeling.”
Creator Mike Fleiss recently took to social media to say that JoJo's first group date was "the most dramatic — ever!” and revealed there have already been four and half kisses, along with some TV-MA rated conversations.
Another former contestant, Jillian Harris, recently spoke with “Extra” and gushed about JoJo. “I was a huge fan of JoJo throughout the entire show but now she's going to be the Bachelorette so, selfishly, I'm happy they didn't pick her, 'cause I get more of JoJo.”
Harris continued, “I think she's going to be great; JoJo's articulate, she's beautiful, she's got pretty hair, and great style. I think she's a lot of fun, she's got a great laugh, and she seems to have a huge heart."
