Are Clint and JJ falling in love on The Bachelorette?
According to Hollywood Life, a new promo clip for the show doesn’t just depict love blossoming between Kaitlyn Bristowe and her suitors. Evidently Clint Arlis catches feelings for JJ Lane.
“It’s absolutely insane. I never thought that I’d meet somebody like that. Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind,” Clint says.
“Clint and JJ, they’re so into each other,” says another suitor.
Clint admits that he and JJ got “close in the shower” and says that Kaitlyn isn’t the one for him because he has found someone else.
Clint and JJ falling in love, presuming it’s the real deal, marks the first time two contestants have fallen for each other.
In the promo, Clint says that he “needs the rose,” but it’s not because he wants to continue to win Kaitlyn over. It’s because he wants to stay in the Bachelor mansion with JJ.
According to Celebuzz, ABC has dubbed Clint the “Brokeback Bachelor.”
While some of the guys consider this a “bromance,” there seems to be something else going on between these two men. Something a bit more serious. JJ, who has a daughter, doesn’t say anything on the promo, but that doesn’t mean that Clint’s feelings aren’t a two-way street.
If Clint and JJ are in love with each other, that might mean that three couples will be made from this season of The Bachelorette. Not only will Kaitlyn presumably find love, but Bachelorette hopeful Britt Nilsson is said to be dating someone she met on the show as well. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Brady Toops ended up leaving the show on his own accord and was approached by host Chris Harrison before exiting. Brady was allowed to go see Britt in her hotel room before she headed home. The two are reportedly still together.
If Clint and JJ are really falling in love, it’s going to be very interesting to watch, just because their focuses are going to shift. Many fans are wondering how long it will take Kaitlyn to find out and how long the guys will keep the charade going.
Do you think these two guys really have feelings for each other? Could this just be made up for television? Do you think ABC has anything to do with this new relationship? Sound off in the comments below.
