Bachelorette star JoJo Fletcher’s journey to find love ends with a three-hour season finale on Monday, August 1, but it may not be the last time fans see the 25-year-old Texas native on TV.
Several former Bachelor and Bachelorette stars have signed on to compete on Dancing with the Stars in the past, and now JoJo is hinting that she may join ABC’s ballroom dance competition when the new season kicks off on September 12.
According to Bustle, if JoJo joins Dancing with the Stars this fall, she will be the sixth star from the Bachelor franchise to join the show. Previous contestants include Chris Soules, Sean Lowe, Trista Sutter, Melissa Rycroft, and Jake Pavelka
Earlier this week, Glamour’s Jessica Radloff asked if JoJo has given any thought to going on Dancing with the Stars this September, and JoJo didn’t hesitate to give her an answer that shows she has clearly been thinking about the opportunity to stay in the spotlight for awhile.
“I got a chance to go to one of the live shows last season, and I was blown away with how unbelievable that show was,” Fletcher told Glamour. “I think that if the opportunity came up, I would think about it because it seems like one of the coolest, most challenging things you could do. I would definitely consider it.”
Fletcher, who worked in the real estate business before joining Ben’s season of The Bachelor and moving on to become the star of The Bachelorette, will find plenty of opportunities after her season wraps up on Monday.
It won’t come as a big surprise to find out she’s part of the Dancing with the Stars Season 23 cast this fall, but even if that doesn’t pan out for her, blogger Reality Steve is confident that she won’t “flip another house for the rest of her life.”
“These leads take the gig because they know it can lead to something bigger and better in the future,” Steve writes. “She’s no different than the rest of them. I don’t think JoJo will flip another house the rest of her life, because she won’t need to. I have a feeling she’ll have the most successful post-Bachelorette career of anyone who ever had that role. That’s my honest opinion. She just has ‘it.'”
JoJo tells Glamour that she doesn’t know “what’s going to happen” after The Bachelorette, but she can do her “real estate stuff” remotely and wants to see where life takes her.
Before she moves on to whatever she will do next, whether it’s DWTS or something else, JoJo still has some unfinished business that involves her role on The Bachelorette.
On Monday night, the two-hour season finale will begin at 8 p.m. ET. According to ABC, JoJo will admit that she fell in love with both Robby Hayes and Jordan Rodgers and will face both of them at what is expected to be an extremely emotional final rose ceremony.
Immediately following the finale, JoJo will appear on the After the Final Rose live show with her final pick and this season’s runner-up, where she will talk about the finale and what has happened after she finished taping the finale in Thailand.
The media tour will begin immediately after Monday night’s show, so fans can expect to see JoJo alone or — if she got engaged (spoiler in link) — with her fiancé by her side on Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Live with Kelly, Entertainment Tonight, and several other news and entertainment shows.
Do you think Bachelorette star JoJo Fletcher would be a good addition to the Dancing with the Stars Season 23 cast this fall?
