Only two suitors remain as JoJo Fletcher gets ready to hand out her final rose.
The Bachelorette season finale is only days away, and rumors about Robby Hayes and Jordan Rodgers aren’t making Fletcher’s decision any easier. Thankfully, the reality star finally opened up about the rumors and is confident she knows the truth.
“It’s hard for me to see people say these things about guys I know very well and care so much about,” Fletcher told People. “But I feel like I did ask the right questions, and I got the answers that I thought I needed. I know that’s not the truth. I know these men.”
Reports hint that Rodgers is only in it for fame, while other rumors indicate Hayes broke up with his longtime girlfriend just to appear on the show.
According to Carter Matt, it’s been hard for Fletcher to read through the rumors, but she can’t imagine what Rodgers and Hayes are going through.
“It’s been rough. I can’t imagine what they’re going through dealing with it,” she stated. “But I think the greatest takeaway is you can’t always believe what you read.”
Like Ben Higgins on The Bachelor, Fletcher has strong feelings for both of her final two men. Considering how Higgins chose Lauren Bushnell over Fletcher in his final rose ceremony, Fletcher admitted that she should have known better.
“I didn’t expect to fall for more than one guy,” Fletcher said. “I went into it being really scared of that because if anyone should not let that happen, it should have been me! But until you’ve been in these shoes and gone through it, I don’t think you can understand. I just had to let myself be open to whatever happened.”
Which one will she choose in the end?
At this point, it’s too early to tell if Fletcher picks Rodgers or Hayes in the end. However, Us Magazine is reporting that fans can expect one emotional finale.
A source told the outlet that Fletcher will get engaged during the finale. The mystery man popped the big question on a beach in Phuket, Thailand.
However, before accepting the man’s proposal, Fletcher had to dump her runner-up on the season finale of The Bachelorette, and it wasn’t pretty.
“JoJo was sobbing,” the source revealed. “She told him, ‘I wanted it to be you.'”
Why did Fletcher reject him?
Apparently, Fletcher made her decision based on how the final two men interacted with her family.
Although Fletcher’s parents liked both men, one of them forgot to ask their permission to marry Fletcher.
“It was important to JoJo that the guys get her parents’ permission before proposing,” the insider revealed. “JoJo viewed it as disrespectful that he didn’t.”
Fletcher’s entire family flew down to meet the last two suitors. This included her parents, Joseph and Soraya, her brothers Ben and Matt, and Rachel, her sister.
The runner-up impressed the family but didn’t seem like husband material.
“After he left, Soraya said she thought he was a player,” the insider said.
The second suitor had a very different experience.
“Everyone thought he was husband material,” the insider continued. “Later they told JoJo that they liked the other man too, but they thought the second would be more loyal and a better fit.”
JoJo took her family’s comments to heart and used them to make her final decision.
Unfortunately, fans will have to tune in for the final rose ceremony to find out if Fletcher picked Rodgers or Hayes.
The season finale of The Bachelorette airs Monday night on ABC. The last episode this season, The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose, will air directly after.
