The Bachelorette 2016 could be headed to a very controversial ending, with potential spoilers suggesting that JoJo Fletcher may have made her final pick based on what could get her the most attention rather than finding a man she plans to marry.
JoJo came into this season with plenty of goodwill from fans, who watched her run to the end of the last Bachelor season and steal the heart of Ben Higgins before ultimately losing to Lauren Bushnell. Choosing JoJo seemed the logical step for Bachelorette producers, given her big fan base and seemingly wholesome demeanor.

But now there is mounting evidence that JoJo Fletcher could be in the Bachelorette run for attention, and made a calculated decision on which man to pick based on what could get her the most post-show press.
Multiple sources have indicated that JoJo Fletcher’s final pick is Jordan Rodgers, who happens to be the brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Jordan reportedly has a spotty relationship history, with a former girlfriend, Brittany Farrer, accusing him of cheating. This apparently didn’t bother JoJo.
As Celeb Dirty Laundry noted, JoJo Fletcher for some reason didn’t seem to mind about Jordan’s cheating past.
“According to this week’s edition of Us Weekly, Jojo Fletcher and Brittany Farrer know each other! The tabloid reports that Jojo and Brittany Farrar met “by chance” last year in Dallas, before Jojo even knew she would be the next Bachelorette or dating Jordan Rodgers.
“Apparently, Brittany casually mentioned to Jojo who her boyfriend was, and that they had “trust issues” and she thought he was being unfaithful to her.
“Fast forward to now. Jojo Fletcher winds up the The Bachelorette 2016, she meets Jordan Rodgers – and already has heard all about how horrible a boyfriend he was from his then current girlfriend. Yet, she decides to keep dating him on national television?”
There is already evidence that Jordan Rodgers may have entered the show in a bid to further his own career rather than trying to find a wife. Reality Steve, the blogger whose inside information on the Bachelor and Bachelorette franchises has been spot on for nearly a decade, predicted that Jordan would be given the final rose, but that there are no real plans for he and JoJo to get married.

Steve added that Jordan actually had another girlfriend during the show’s filming, and even spent the night with the woman just before leaving to begin filming for The Bachelorette.
Steve predicted that it would lead to some difficult press for JoJo Fletcher.
“… But just after hearing all this stuff about Jordan, I hope JoJo has developed some thick skin because she’s gonna have to put up with a s*** ton of tabloid coverage blasting this guy in the next few months. I’m sure she’ll stand by him and choose to believe the stories aren’t true, but really? You think every single one of these girls is just gonna be making stuff up about the guy? Horrible way to start a relationship. Like I said, be careful JoJo. You’re in for one bumpy ride.”
There is still another possible Bachelorette 2016 spoiler that could explain the pick. JoJo Fletcher herself may be aiming for attention, and getting engaged to the brother of an NFL superstar would certain bring that. But it could be a tricky plan for JoJo, as fans have turned on contestants in the past if it seemed that they were in it for attention rather than genuinely looking for love. Juan Pablo Galavis and his dead-end reality career is testament to that.
