Who says there’s no second chances in love? The Bachelor‘s JoJo Fletcher has just been announced as the next Bachelorette! The 24-year old real estate developer from Dallas, Texas is wasting no time finding the man of her dreams. Although Bachelor fans fully expected her to be grieving over her breakup with Ben Higgins, the After the Final Rose special proved that JoJo is moving on. She’s excited to jump into the next stage of her life as ABC’s The Bachelorette!

This is the first time ever that a Bachelor runner-up has landed the coveted Bachelorette spot, and JoJo’s suitors may be in for more than they ever could have imagined. With a smitten ex-boyfriend and overly protective brothers that appear to be difficult to impress. Her brothers called Ben Higgins out for being involved with multiple women while their sister was on The Bachelor. They knew JoJo was more invested than Ben; it turns out they were right!
