The Bachelorette always has its share of drama, and this season is certainly no exception. From Luke’s unicorn to Chad’s “villain” behavior to questions about Jordan’s real motivations, there has been plenty to keep viewers tuning in. And it seems that the drama may not end with the finale of The Bachelorette.
Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher has visited the hometowns and families of the final contestants – Chase McNary, Jordan Rodgers, Robby Hayes, and Luke Pell. Each visit had its high points and its low points. The families were great, but concerns that had arisen in previous episodes of The Bachelorette came out more in the visits. Chase’s difficulty with opening up was confirmed and explained by his family, a family of divorce that hurt Chase deeply. The silence between Jordan’s family and his NFL star brother Aaron Rodgers was confirmed. But this episode of The Bachelorette didn’t shed anymore light on the reasons for the silence. And Robby’s previous relationship came up as a possible issue, with many questioning the reason for it coming to an end. They talked about it and it seemed to have been settled. Luke told her that she had his heart, and at the rose ceremony he told her that he was in love with her. But it wasn’t enough, and Luke got sent home.
Bachelorette JoJo was down to three men, and in the next episode sent Chase home. With two men left, reports from Us Weekly and others said that the final rose was going to Jordan. The speculation about The Bachelorette‘s choice was based on something Jordan’s brother Luke said in an interview.
Now there are reports that Bachelorette JoJo does become engaged to Jordan, but that is not the end of their story. According to a report from Hollywood Take, the two have split up. The site says that insiders have told them that during Monday night’s finale of The Bachelorette, JoJo will give the final rose to Rodgers and the two will become engaged, but that their relationship following the rose ceremony didn’t last. The couple reportedly split after it became clear that they were not “on the same page” about their future. Reality Steve even tweeted that they were no longer together.
Another rumor has it that producers of The Bachelorette got the two to stay together until After the Final Rose airs and that they are expected to actually split within a couple of months following the show.
As reported by International Business Times, many have had their doubts about Rodgers throughout this season of The Bachelorette. Accusations of cheating in previous relationships as well as questions about his real motivation for appearing on the show have circulated for weeks. Then there’s this that Reality Steve wrote about Rodgers and a previous girlfriend in his blog.
“Like, he was with her at her place the night before he left for filming. Not someone he was casually seeing, or occasionally dating. Someone who he had believing he wanted to be with her.”
During the Men Tell All show, bad boy Chad Johnson accused the Bachelorette contestant of having ulterior motives.
“If you want me to be honest, he’s trying to get a media gig. He’s already at a sportscasting job, we all know that. According to his ex-girlfriend, all he wanted out of his life was to be famous.”
So is Bachelorette JoJo single again? We don’t know for sure at this point, but the truth will come out in the weeks to come. In the meantime, the finale of Season 12 of The Bachelorette will air on ABC this Monday night at 8 p.m. ET.
