With all of the hate she’s getting after choosing Bryan over Peter in the ‘Bachelorette’ finale, Rachel Lindsay could use a little advice. Luckily, her predecessor JoJo Fletcher has been through this before, so she’s passing on her wisdom.
Poor Rachel Lindsay, 32, has been taking some serious heat following the Bachelorette finale on Aug. 7. Many fans think she made the wrong decision when she walked away from Peter Kraus, 31, and got engaged to Bryan Abasolo, 37. Luckily, she’s not the only person who’s gone through this! Last year’s bachelorette JoJo Fletcher, 26, pissed off some fans by choosing Jordan Rodgers, 28, but one year later they’re more in love than ever! She’s got some great advice for Rachel on how to ignore the haters and keep your relationship strong. Click here for pics of Rachel and Bryan.
“I always say that everyone’s going to have their opinion and no one’s going to know how you really feel or what really went down so embrace all the support that you’re getting,” JoJo told People on Aug. 11. “Block out the negative comments, focus on your relationship and just trust in the love that you have.” Aww! We love that JoJo is giving Rachel some support. However, she also understands why fans were so obsessed with Peter. “[The finale] was intense,” she said. “I think I felt the same way everyone felt. Watching the breakup with Peter was obviously super sad and hard to watch, but seeing Bryan and Rachel together, they seem so happy so you’re excited for her — you’re sad for Peter.”
JoJo admits that there’s always a lot of involvement from fans in your life after the reality TV show ends, but she’s gotten the hang of staying strong and doing what feels right with Jordan. “I think in the beginning you feel pressured [to set a wedding date],” she explained. “But when you get comfortable, you realize that this is not something that you need to feel pressure on. I think a lot of people are excited to ask about it and talk about it and I’m more than willing to talk about it because it’s exciting for me to also think about. We don’t feel the pressure of just setting a date, getting married – we’re really taking our time and enjoying each other.”
