It’s time for hometown dates on ‘The Bachelorette,’ and for Robby, that means the skeletons in his closet are coming out. During this sneak peek, Robby’s mom tells him that his ex’s roommate has started talking to the press — and saying that he dumped her just to go on the show. Yikes!
We knew this was coming — we’ve been seeing JoJo Fletcher approaching Robby Hayes about his ex for weeks in the promo. But first, Robby has to find out what’s going on, from his mom. Just as a reminder, we learned last week on The Bachelorette, that he and his ex had a bad break up just four months ago.
“Your ex’s roommate has made it look like you broke up to go on the show, and it’s rumored,” Robby’s mom tells him in the new sneak peak. “We know it’s not true. We know the background of it.”
Of course, to Robby it doesn’t matter that his mom knows — he’s more worried about JoJo believing the reports.
“I’m gonna get really upset right now. JoJo has concerns about this, and that could make her question my honest. That’s bullsh-t,” he tells his mom in the preview.
“It just sucks so much because I’m in love with JoJo, and she brought it up today! I’ve worked hard and been honest with her to let her know that that is such a part of my past, and if that’s going to be the chink in the armor that doesn’t make this work, I’m gonna be devastated. I just don’t want to get heartbroken again.”
We know that JoJo does find out about them as we see in the trailer for the episode, where she says, “the rumors about Robby and his ex-girlfriend, I’m nauseous just thinking about it.” Yikes!
