The new ‘Bachelorette’ is officially announced and we are SO excited. JoJo Fletcher was definitely a fan favorite through Ben Higgins season of ‘The Bachelor,’ but there’s a lot you don’t know about her!
One Bachelor season is down, and another Bachelorette season is underwear! JoJo Fletcher, 25, was officially named the next Bachelorette during After the Final Rose on March 14, and we were so excited. So, here’s everythign you need to know about the next woman looking for love — including her reality show past!
1. She has a really good sense of humor.
In her Bachelor bio, she revealed that her favorite movies are Wedding Crashers, Clueless and Patch Adams, which totally say a lot about the kind of fun loving girl she is! I mean, she also got out of the limo to meet Ben with a unicorn at on; just saying.
2. She wants to be in Taylor Swift’s squad.
If she could be someone else for a day, she’d be Tay. “She’s awesome and I’ve already thought singing country music professionally would be so much fun. Plus, she has cool friends,” she said.
3. She’s super determined.
JoJo graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science degree from Baylor University in 2011; she then was a sales executive for Legacy Medical, but left in 2014 to open her own business. She now owns JHF Reality Development LLC in Dallas, Texas.
4. You may have seen her before The Bachelor.
Her brothers, as you saw on The Bachelor, are very protective of their sister– but also have experience with reality TV themselves. Half-brother Ben Patton, starred on NBC’s Ready For Love reality series, and JoJo was actually spotted on a family episode. Her brother was also friends with former Bachelor, Jake Pavelka.
5. Her culture is important to her.
In her description on ABC, she revealed that her mother is Persian, and her dad was born and raised in Tennessee. “I’m proud of my mother’s background despite what social opinions are. It’s important for me to stand up to people stereotyping Iranians,” she wrote.
