Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher’s parents will meet their daughter’s final two suitors on Monday night’s season finale and won’t hold back when it comes to telling JoJo who she should pick.
During the August 1 three-hour season finale, Jordan Rodgers and Robby Hayes will meet JoJo’s parents, Joseph and Soraya, and weigh in on their thoughts about the two finalists. According to Us Weekly, JoJo’s brothers Matt and Ben and sister Rachel, will also be in Thailand to help JoJo decide who should get her final rose.
It didn’t take long for JoJo’s parents to figure out who was a better pick for their daughter, and her mother Soraya was especially vocal about who the Bachelorette should dump and who she should move forward with.

In the preview from ABC (above), Robby appears to be either well-rehearsed or extremely confident about his relationship with JoJo.
Hayes, who said “I love you” to JoJo early-on in the season, makes sure both of JoJo’s parents are present when he asks for their permission to get engaged to their daughter.
This goes over well with JoJo’s mother and father, so much so that they give him the go-ahead and tell JoJo that he is “husband material” and would be more loyal than her other suitor.
The other suitor, of course, is former NFL player Jordan Rodgers and he doesn’t fare quite as well with JoJo’s family, especially her mother.
Although both men have had their share of controversy related to ex-girlfriends, JoJo has had an uneasy feeling about Jordan’s intentions throughout the season.
Still, he’s been her clear front-runner since day one, with host Chris Harrison telling CBS Sports analyst Doug Gottlieb that JoJo’s relationship with Jordan is 100 percent real.
Us Weekly reports that Rodgers arrived at the family’s hotel suite with flowers for JoJo’s mother and some gag gifts for her father and siblings. Although they told JoJo they liked both men, they were most concerned about Jordan’s true intentions.
JoJo’s mother Soraya made it clear that she thinks Rodgers is “a player” and her entire family thought the key sign that he wasn’t ready to commit was when he left without asking JoJo’s parents if he could propose to their daughter.
“It was important to JoJo that the guys get her parents’ permission before proposing,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “JoJo viewed it as disrespectful that he didn’t… [she] cried and said she didn’t know how she was going to make a decision.”
Will JoJo take what her family says about Robby and Jordan into consideration when she hands out her final rose?
In the preview videos below, both Jordan and Robby meet with ring designer Neil Lane to pick out a ring for JoJo. To confuse JoJo even more, both men will propose to the Bachelorette during the final rose ceremony.
However, one proposal doesn’t go as well as expected, something that will remind viewers of Season 11 Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe shooting down Nick Viall after he started to propose to her.
If this season’s spoilers are correct, JoJo will turn down Robby’s proposal but not before telling him that she is in love with him and “wanted him to be the one.”
It won’t come as a big surprise to viewers that JoJo will say, “Yes,” but what happens on the live After the Final Rose special that airs after the finale may turn out to be the most dramatic part of the season.
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, JoJo and Jordan’s love story didn’t end well after they got engaged in Thailand in May.
Watch the three-hour Bachelorette season finale starting at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, August 1 on ABC.
