The 2016 premiere of “The Bachelorette” is almost upon us! Fans of the ABC reality series are ready to watch Season 12 star JoJo Fletcher embark on her journey to find love, and the network has already posted some “first look” photos from the highly anticipated premiere!
The photos from ABC show the 25-year-old real estate developer sitting down with a few friends before meeting her batch of sexy, single contestants. And devoted followers of “The Bachelorette” are very familiar with JoJo’s gal pals — they’re former stars of the reality series!
Kaitlyn Bristowe (Season 11), Desiree Hartsock (Season 9) and Ali Fedotowsky (Season 6) return to “offer some practical advice” to JoJo as she sets out to find “the one.” And they’re good alums for JoJo to listen to! Kaitlyn found love with contestant Shawn Booth from her season. The two are engaged and taking their time planning their wedding. Desiree married contestant Chris Siegfried in January 2015, and the couple celebrated their three-year anniversary of being together earlier this week. They’re expecting their first child together. Meanwhile, Ali got engaged to contestant Roberto Martinez in the Season 6 finale in August 2010, but the pair split in November 2011. She’s currently engaged to TV host Kevin Manno and is pregnant with their first child.
Here’s to JoJo finding that special someone when “The Bachelorette” Season 12 premieres on ABC Monday, May 23! Check out the photos below:
