JoJo Fletcher has already done so much work and has had to make a number of difficult decisions through the first five episodes of The Bachelorette. After starting with 26 men, she now has it down to just eight remaining suitors; the villain Chad Johnson is among those sent home. The group is still in Buenos Aires next week and there is a mystery date for JoJo, which has left even the spoiler experts wondering who accompanies her.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the current season of The Bachelorette starring JoJo Fletcher. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
It’s rather difficult to figure out how the episodes are going to pan out, as ABC has edited things in a strange fashion since the two-night event a couple of weeks ago. If all goes according to the spoilers posted by Reality Steve, Episode 6 should begin with eight guys remaining in the quest for JoJo’s hand in marriage.

Information has been rather short for the episodes in Buenos Aires and it leads to a few mystery dates that no-one knows anything about, as of yet. This week, JoJo starts things off with a one-on-one date, but it’s not known with whom.
Reality Steve has done some Bachelorette math and he has used the process of elimination to figure out who it may be, and it’s quite impressive. He has actually been able to get it down to two guys who it may be, which makes a lot of logistical sense.
“Whoever it is, according to the season overview press release, ‘JoJo and one man show off their moves in the sexy Fuerza Bruta stage production.’ If you wanna play the process of elimination game, it isn’t Wells since he gets eliminated this episode. It isn’t Derek or Chase since they’re on the 2-on-1. It isn’t Robby or Jordan since they had 1-on-1’s last episode. And Alex gets a 1-on-1 next episode. So that only leaves Luke and James Taylor as possible candidates. James had his first 1-on-1 in episode 3, and Luke had his in episode 4. So it’s one of those two.”
The group date is another big question mark, and no-one has any earthly idea who is involved in that one, but it will likely only be with five guys.
The third and final date in Episode 6 is going to be a two-on-one date which has Chase McNary and Derek Peth heading out with JoJo for — well, that isn’t known either. What has been revealed is that Chase gets the rose on this date, which means Derek is heading home.
As it comes time for the rose ceremony elimination, JoJo is only going to send home one other guy this week since she already eliminated Derek on the two-on-one date. It’s time for the Nashville DJ by the name of Wells Adams to head home, as JoJo is starting to really get down to the big-time front-runners.
It may get a little intense, but Jordan isn’t going anywhere. At least, not yet.
You must remember that ABC does often edit the episodes of their shows in different ways. What you read here is going to happen, but it could take place across multiple episodes if the network decides to switch things up and prolong the drama. This is especially true after the two-night event from a couple of weeks ago, which had ABC change things up a bit.
After this episode of The Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher is going to only have a few more episodes to figure out who has taken hold of her heart. Once their time is up in Buenos Aires, there will be a mere six suitors remaining. One would think that would make her decision easier, but those still in the running are those she truly cares about, and it’s actually going to make things even more difficult.
