Joelle, The Bachelor


Dr. Darcy Sterling, the love coach and relationship expert from E!'s upcoming new series Famously Single, is sounding off on last night's big Bachelor finale and new Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher!

"In the spirit of pure transparency, I have to admit to being a virgin of The Bachelor," Dr. Darcy tells E! News. "This is my first season. I went in preparing to get a lifetime's worth of voyeurism on."

Dr. Darcy says she is a huge fan of the hit dating show's format. "The idea of dating many people at once seems to be of a bygone era," she dished. "I hear multiple dating stories every day of my life, and whether they're gay, straight, bi, or label-avoidant, the one constant is this: the minute people begin to attach, they either commit or cut bait."

Dr. Darcy didn't watch every episode this season but calls winner Lauren Bushnell "beautiful." As for how Lauren and Ben Higgins are as a couple, Dr. Darcy adds, "They seem happy together."

Dr. Darcy is a big fan of new Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher. "While I can't predict the future for Ben and Lauren, I can tell you that without a doubt, there's someone else out there for JoJo. How do I know? Because I think one of her life lessons is to learn that she's good enough not to have to compete with others anymore," she revealed.

Dr. Darcy continued, "In the season finale JoJo disclosed that she ‘always [has] to compete with other people. I just want to stop competing.' I want to give her a huge hug because my heart twisted watching Ben reject her. But far more valuable than a hug would be for me to remind her that this is what she signed up for.  If I get a vote in her life, I'd tell her to stop volunteering as a candidate for dating competitions. And she must have heard me. Because JoJo's turned the tables—now she's not the one competing. She's the one in control making the decisions as the Bachelorette. Wishing her the best."
