'The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons - Ever!': Jojo Fletcher says Ben Higgins's rejection made her feel 'cheated'
Jojo was one of the two women that Ben Higgins had said 'I Love You' to. He went ahead to choose Lauren Bushnell over Jojo
Jojo Fletcher joined host Chris Harrison tonight on 'The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons - Ever!' to speak about the heartbreaking moment when Ben Higgins told her that he loved Lauren Bushnell more. It was the first time in 'Bachelor' history that someone had said 'I Love You' and that too, to two women. Fletcher was one of them and her heart was miserably broken after Ben chose Bushnell over her. She admitted not having handled the situation well as it felt like "it was a kick to my stomach and it spiraled me back into all the feelings that I felt in my past relationship. I felt cheated".
'Bachelor' fans might know that Fletcher went ahead to get a show of her own on the franchise. After not ending up with a ring on her finger on Ben's season, she was cast as the lead on Season 12 of 'The Bachelorette'. She ended up giving her final rose to Jordan Rodgers on her season. The two have been engaged for over four years and were about to be married this summer, however, their plans were derailed due to Covid-19.
It was expected that Rodgers would join Fletcher on the episode tonight, for a chat with Harrison. However, it seemed clear why he wasn't present after Harrison announced to Fletcher as well as the audiences that it's time for their season of the 'Bachelorette' that will be recapped in the next episode. Fletcher even revealed that her fiance has yet to watch their season and it'd be interesting to see his reaction when it is recapped next week.
Her fans are really pumped after the announcement and have taken to Twitter to make their excitement known. "I literally can’t wait to watch Jojo’s season next week! #TheBachelorGOAT" wrote a fan. While another wrote, "Jojo deserved to be happy and I can’t wait to re-watch her journey next week!! #TheBachelorGOAT"
"Jojo deserved to be happy and I can’t wait to re-watch her journey next week!! #TheBachelorGOAT," read another fan tweet.
