Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher didn’t let her heartbreak over Bachelor Ben Higgins hold her back from finding love on TV a second time around. In less than two weeks, fans will see her love story play out when the 12th season of the Bachelorette premieres on ABC.
Now that filming has wrapped up and JoJo has handed out her final rose, fans are anxious to find out who she kissed on the first night, which guy got the first impression rose, and who JoJo got engaged to at the final rose ceremony that was filmed earlier this week.
Here’s the latest scoop on what fans can expect on night one in the Bachelor mansion as well as season finale spoilers that point to JoJo getting engaged in beautiful Phuket, Thailand.

According to blogger Reality Steve, JoJo locked lips during the first cocktail party with only one guy — former pro football player Jordan Rodgers. Steve went on to say that JoJo told Jordan “three different times how good he looked” when he stepped out of the limo.
“Jordan made out with her at the cocktail party the second time he talked to her. Wanted to kiss her the first time but didn’t. So made sure to pull her aside a second time and they made out. Only guy she made out with on the first night.”
Fans may recall when Bachelor Ben Higgins admitted in his People blog that Lauren Bushnell “took his breath away” when she arrived at the mansion. It was clear to the other contestants that he was smitten with Lauren early-on, something that seems to happen with JoJo and Jordan.
“When Jordan came out of [the] limo, she told him 3 diff times how good he looked. Then he walked away, & she turned around & said ‘Hotttttt!’…It was the JoJo and Jordan show right from the beginning.”
Apparently Jordan’s entrance and his kissing skills impressed JoJo big time. Reality Steve states that not only is he the only one to kiss the Bachelorette on the first night, he also scored the first impression rose.
Does that mean Jordan will also get the final rose? According to the Bustle, in past seasons of the Bachelor and Bachelorette, it’s rare for the winner of the first impression rose to walk away with the final rose on the season finale.
Olivia Caridi (Ben Higgins’ season) and Britt Nilsson (Chris Soules’ season) both received the first rose and didn’t even make it to hometowns, but there’s still hope for Jordan — Kaitlyn Bristowe gave Shawn Booth the first impression rose on the last season of the Bachelorette and while they aren’t married yet, they are still engaged.
Although Chris Harrison states that contestant Luke Pell is a great match for JoJo (spoilers indicate he makes it to hometowns and to the final two), Reality Steve is almost certain that Jordan Rodgers gets the final rose this season.
“So basically from night 1, it was all about if there was anyone there who could take down Jordan as the front runner… it was clear as day… it’d be a pretty big upset if it wasn’t Jordan.”
Although JoJo may have met her match on night one, the man-drama that will undoubtedly happen this season will still be fun to watch. Watch the two-hour season premiere of the Bachelorette starting at 9 p.m. ET on Monday, May 23, on ABC.
