JoJo Fletcher started filming her season of the Bachelorette six weeks ago and now she is preparing to hand out her final rose in beautiful Phuket, Thailand. Can’t wait until the May 23 season premiere to find out how JoJo’s journey to find love turned out?
Here are some Bachelorette Season 12 spoilers to tide you over, including the filming schedule for the overnights and final rose ceremony and the latest scoop about her final two guys.

The overnight dates are currently being filmed in Hua Hin, Thailand, a small beachside town that is about three hours from Bangkok. This week, JoJo will determine which two guys will travel with her to Phuket for the final rose ceremony.
Fans may recall that Bachelorette Ashley Hebert (Season 7) filmed several dates in Phuket in 2011 and Bachelor Sean Lowe (Season 17) filmed part of his season in Thailand, handing out his final rose to Catherine Giudici in Chiang Rai.
According to blogger Reality Steve, filming for JoJo Fletcher’s first overnight date started on Saturday, April 30, with one of her final three guys. If the production crew sticks with a filming schedule that is similar to Ben Higgins’ season of the Bachelor, the second overnight will film on Monday, May 2, and the final overnight date will take place on Wednesday, May 4, followed by the second to last rose ceremony of the season the next day.
Travel from Hua Hin to Phuket takes approximately nine hours by car, so fans can expect filming (and perhaps some photos leaked on Twitter) for JoJo’s dates with her final two guys to start at some point next weekend followed by the final rose ceremony early next week.
Who did JoJo take to the overnight dates and who are her rumored final two guys?

Last week, JoJo traveled to the hometowns of her final four guys — Chase McNary (Colorado), Robby Hayes (Florida), Luke Pell (Texas), and Jordan Rodgers (California). Photos from two of the four dates leaked out on Twitter, giving fans a glimpse at the time she spent with Jordan and Robby.

Although Reality Steve is still not certain which three men were picked for the overnights, there is a good chance that Jordan — the younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers — is one of them.
According to Us Weekly, Jordan has been a frontrunner all season, so fans can expect him to be one of the three guys on the overnight dates and possibly in the final two.
Robby Hayes is also a rumored frontrunner this season, but there may be some big-time drama associated with the 27-year-old Florida native. According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Robby broke off a four-year relationship with Hope Higgenbotham shortly before leaving to film the Bachelorette in March.

Although Robby makes it to at least the final four, possibly further, it will be interesting to see if he tells JoJo about his recent breakup or if he’s just using her to find fame — or possibly become a candidate for the next Bachelor.
Fans can expect more Bachelorette spoilers about this week’s overnight dates and the final rose ceremony to leak out online unless producers do a good job of keeping the outcome of JoJo’s season a secret.
Mark your calendar now — the two-hour season premiere of ABC’s The Bachelorette starring JoJo Fletcher begins at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday, May 23.
