‘Bachelorette’ 2016 Spoilers: JoJo Fletcher Connects With Familiar Faces During Season 12 Premiere, Who Shows Up To See Her?

It is almost time for JoJo Fletcher to begin looking for love on ABC’s The Bachelorette 2016 season. The first episode debuts on Monday, May 23, and the network is starting to share some teasers. Reality Steve’s spoilers are filling in many of the gaps, and fans are anxious to see how it all comes together. What are the latest available tidbits?

ABC teases Bachelorette spoilers indicating that several familiar faces will pop up as JoJo Fletcher’s journey gets going. During the premiere, viewers will see former leads Kaitlyn Bristowe, Ali Fedotowsky, and Desiree Hartsock Siegfried all visit with JoJo to give her some advice. Fans will surely enjoy seeing a bit of Ali and Desiree in particular, as both are pregnant with their first babies, and it will be interesting to see if the group has any useful words of wisdom for Fletcher as she starts her search for Mr. Right.

The network also teases that “an unexpected visitor from the past arrives and pulls the shocked Bachelorette aside, as the other men wonder if they have new competition for JoJo’s heart.” While the network will surely hype this mystery appearance quite a bit leading into the premiere, Reality Steve’s spoilers have already dished out the goods. This appearance may make many viewers roll their eyes, as it seems that former Bachelor Jake Pavelka is the guy popping up during the premiere.

Is Jake really showing up to try to win JoJo’s love? Luckily, no, that is not the case. There is a previous connection between JoJo and Jake, but the connection is not of a romantic nature. Pavelka used to go to school with JoJo’s brother Ben Patton and the two have known one another to some degree for a few years.

Good times at Matt's bday party!

It’s not really clear just how well Jake and JoJo know one another, and the show will likely hype it up to be more than it is. However, it sounds like Bachelorette viewers will see him pop up in an effort to give her some advice or vet some of the guys. Luckily, it doesn’t sound as if he stays for long.

There will be some wild entrances during the premiere, as Bachelorette spoilers tease that one guy shows up in a kilt, another rides up on a motorcycle, and there is a bachelor who dons a Santa suit for his introduction. Another guy will use a unicorn to help make a big first impression, a spinoff of what Fletcher herself did during her introduction during Ben Higgins’ Bachelor season, and there will be a flurry of snow during the cocktail party. Apparently, Fletcher will have her first kiss of the season during the first night, and fans are anxious to figure out which guys capture JoJo’s attention.

Reality Steve’s spoilers have already pinpointed the supposed final four guys who reportedly got hometown dates toward the end of the season. Carbone’s Bachelorette spoilers have also teased an early front-runner, but the gossip guru has also shared that there could be some shockers at the end. Will an early front-runner lose steam or bail before the final rose ceremony? Could a sleeper bachelor come on strong at the end and sweep Fletcher off of her feet?

More spoilers from Reality Steve should be nailing down the final rose specifics soon, and fans cannot wait to hear more about how things play out in Season 12. JoJo Fletcher’s journey as ABC’s The Bachelorette 2016 star begins on Monday, May 23, and fans are anxious to get going. Will she find love just like Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell did this past winter?
