The next Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher, will be handing out roses very soon. Although her season of the show will not air until May, JoJo is already preparing to meet her suitors, all of whom will be arriving to the Bachelor mansion via limo in the coming weeks.
As fans of the popular dating show know, JoJo Fletcher was announced on the After the Final Rose special. Dressed to the nines in a black mini looking absolutely flawless when she confronted her ex, Ben Higgins, JoJo got emotional when Chris Harrison made the big announcement. The audience gave her a standing ovation as she walked around and waved to everyone with tears in her eyes, Ben looking on from the couch behind her.
According to Us Weekly, JoJo Fletcher celebrated the big announcement with her parents (and yes, her mom drank champagne right from the bottle). Bachelor Nation was quick to send their congratulations to JoJo and to wish her well as she tries to find her Mr. Right. Former cast members also took to social media to wish JoJo Fletcher good luck.

As you can see, JoJo Fletcher has a lot of support behind her. She has already amassed a great number of fans (many of whom are still shocked that Ben Higgins sent her home), and people simply cannot wait to watch her journey on The Bachelorette.
Us Weekly reports that former Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowski has given JoJo Fletcher some advice by way of her personal blog. Ali has been a big fan of JoJo’s since the beginning of Ben’s season.
“Be open to finding love, but be prepared to not find it. Wear water proof mascara (lots of tears coming your way, girl). Try to forget about the guys you like the first night, and even first week, so you can really focus on the ones you don’t know how you feel about yet. And finally, live in the moment and enjoy every second! I truly wish I let myself enjoy the experience more and didn’t take it so seriously. So have fun, kiss a lot and follow your heart. So happy for you, Jojo! Enjoy every minute during your time as the Bachelorette!”
JoJo Fletcher was really in love with Ben Higgins, but she was able to repair her broken heart after being dumped by him on the finale. It is unclear how much time she took to decide whether or not she wanted to do The Bachelorette after the gig was offered to her or how much ABC will be paying her to find love. However, it will undoubtedly be one of the best seasons of the show ever.
JoJo’s season of The Bachelorette will begin on Monday, May 23. Will you be tuning in?
