Who is Bachelorette contestant Robby Hayes and how far does he make it with JoJo Fletcher? Hayes is rumored to be one of the Season 12 frontrunners, but his recent breakup with a girl who looks just like JoJo may cause problems for the 27-year-old sales rep from Jacksonville, Florida.
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, JoJo is looking for a man who is “on her level” when it comes to money and a successful career. Robby seems to fit the bill — he’s gainfully employed and is working towards a degree that will increase his earning power. However, a relationship that ended right before he joined the cast of the Bachelorette may put him out of the running to become JoJo’s final pick.
Blogger Reality Steve reports that Robby ended a four-year relationship with Hope Higgenbotham shortly before he was picked to become a contestant on the Bachelorette.
Whether not Robby is there for the right reasons won’t be clear to viewers until the season gets underway, but cute couple photos on Instagram and the fact that Robby and Hope still follow each other on Twitter will undoubtedly raise a red flag as to his intentions with JoJo.
Fans will have to watch this season of the Bachelorette to find out if Robby tells JoJo that he broke up with Hope shortly before coming on the show to supposedly find love.
Despite his recent breakup, spoilers indicate that Robby had no problem getting JoJo’s attention while filming the Bachelorette — he was a frontrunner throughout the season.

The final rose ceremony is being taped in Thailand this week, but the names of the final two guys have not leaked out yet. However, Reality Steve has confirmed that Robby was one of the final four (Jordan Rodgers, Chase McNary, Luke Pell) who made it to hometown dates and there is speculation that he moved on to the overnight dates that were filmed last week.
If producers are able to keep the outcome of the final rose ceremony a secret, fans will have to wait until the season finale airs in July to find out if JoJo is engaged to Robby Hayes or if he only made it as far as hometowns.
The Bachelorette Season 12 premieres on Monday, May 23, at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. The popular ABC reality show will return to the normal 8 p.m. ET time slot starting with the Episode 2, scheduled to air May 30.
