Go JoJo, go JoJo, go!
We hope you don't have anything scheduled for Monday, May 23, because that's when The Bachelorette season 12 officially premieres, with Ben Higgins' runner-upJoJo Fletcher handing out the roses after he proposed to Lauren Bushnell in Monday's finale. A fan-favorite throughout the season, Bachelor Nation was extremely excited when host Chris Harrison announced JoJo would be the next Bachelorette during the After the Final Rose ceremony, but she's still a bit of a mystery.
To help you get to know JoJo better, here are some fun facts to know about the 25-year-old real estate developer from Dallas...
1. She's half-Persian and her heritage is very important to her. "My mom is Persian, and my Dad was born and raised in Tennessee. I'm proud of my mother's background despite what social opinions are," she wrote in her Q&A for The Bachelor. "It's important for me to stand up to people stereotyping Iranians."
2. While there were some speculation that JoJo and Nick Viall (the runner-up from the last TWO seasons of The Bachelorette, with Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe) have been in contact and possibly hooking up, a source debunked that rumor. While they met once, there's "no truth" to the hookup rumors. "My search for love continues, but no longer includes group dates. Jojo's 25 new boy friends can rest easy #TheBachelor #TheBachelorette," Nick even joked on Twitter.
