The feelings that JoJo Fletcher has for her final two suitors on this season of The Bachelorette are very important, but there are others to consider. Robby Hayes and Jordan Rodgers will meet her family in Thailand during Monday night’s season finale, and it could be their true feelings that elevate one guy over the other. Well, that episode has already been taped, and there are some concerns about one of the final men and things don’t seem very good.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the current season of The Bachelorette. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
Just about everyone wants their family, and especially their parents, to genuinely like the person they select as their true love. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work out that way, which can cause the awkwardness and skepticism to always linger.
Now, it seems as if her family has mixed feelings about the final two guys that she has to choose from, and it just doesn’t look good.

The two men will meet her family separately, and US Weekly did not reveal the winner, but they did report that her decision was greatly influenced by the actions of one of the men. Apparently, one of the suitors did not ask her parents for the permission to take their daughter’s hand in marriage.
Through the process of elimination, it’s not hard to figure out which one of the guys made that grave error after seeing what ABC has already released.

Yes, Hayes does ask Joseph and Soraya Fletcher for permission to marry their daughter and he really seems so truthful in his feelings for her. Yahoo TV reports that Hayes really gives the “hard sell” to win over her parents by asking permission but making sure that both her father and her mother were present for his request.
That’s quite an impressive move by Hayes and one that a lot of people think would carry a lot of weight.
Both suitors didn’t just meet her parents but also her brothers Ben and Matt alone with her sister Rachel. Us Weekly stated that the guy who sought their approval seemed like “husband material” while the other man was liked by them, but not seen as a good fit.
Looking at what has been released by ABC, Twitter, and spoiler sites…it seems as if Hayes is the “husband material,” and the other is obviously Rodgers.
US Weekly reports that the other guy (Rodgers) brought flowers for Soraya Fletcher and gag gifts for the rest of the family while trying to come off as really “smooth.” When he left, the mother of the bride-to-be actually said he seemed like “he was a player.”
When all is said and done, it’s going to be Rodgers getting the final nod from JoJo, even though it truly seems as if her family is not overly fond of him. If the sources are correct, Hayes is the guy who ended up impressing her family more and asking for her hand in marriage to do things “the right way.”
Still, the bachelorette didn’t seem to think that meant enough to swing her stronger feelings in his direction, and that is why she chooses Jordan. The last choice is not that for her family to make and even if she feels they were disrespected, it appears her mind is made up.
Maybe the permission of her parents isn’t as important as she originally thought it was.
Monday night’s season finale of The Bachelorette is going to be huge with so much speculation flying around. Actually, what happens on the final episode is already known, as JoJo Fletcher picks Jordan Rodgers over Robby Hayes, but the live “After The Final Rose” special could be interesting. The leading lady’s family is not overly fond of one of the guys, and all signs appear to point to that being the former football player and not the swimmer.
