Bach­e­lorette Jojo Fletcher says “I quit” af­ter learn­ing the truth about her slimy suit­ors Shocker

In Touch (USA) - - Reality News -

When Jojo Fletcher signed on to be The Bach­e­lorette, she hoped to find laugh­ter, love — and a man she could trust. “I want some­one hon­est and gen­uine,” she ex­plained early in the sea­son, adding that she was sure her in­stincts would lead her there. “I like to think I have a pretty good read on peo­ple, and that my gut steers me in the right di­rec­tion.”

Un­for­tu­nately, it didn’t. Shortly af­ter film­ing be­gan, the real estate de­vel­oper, 25, learned that sev­eral of this sea­son’s suit­ors weren’t as per­fect as they seemed to be. On that first night of film­ing, Jojo was con­fi­dent she had met her fu­ture hus­band. But ru­mors soon be­gan swirling that sev­eral guys in the house — in­clud­ing front-run­ners Robby Hayes, 27, Jor­dan Rodgers, 27, and Grant Kemp, 28 — weren’t be­ing hon­est about their in­ten­tions or their past re­la­tion­ships. When Jojo found out, she lost it. “She thought the show was us­ing her for rat­ings be­cause they cast such jerks,” says a source. “She ac­tu­ally screamed the words, ‘I quit!’” The easy­go­ing Texan felt so duped this sea­son that she threat­ened to walk out not once, but twice. Adds the source, “She told pro­duc­ers she was done with the show and wanted to go home.”

They con­vinced Jojo to stay — but she de­manded an­swers. The brunette bomb­shell made the de­ci­sion to con­front Jor­dan about a chance en­counter she had with his ex-girl­friend Brit­tany Far­rar off camera last win­ter, be­fore film­ing be­gan. (As Jojo re­vealed on the show’s June 20 episode, Brit­tany had heard that the ex-football player was go­ing to be a con­tes­tant this sea­son and felt she should cau­tion Jojo about his cheat­ing past.) “She chose to ig­nore Brit­tany’s warning, but as chat­ter picked up in the house about Jor­dan’s mo­tives, the se­cret con­ver­sa­tion fu­eled Jojo’s in­se­cu­ri­ties,” says the source, adding that although Jor­dan de­nied all the claims when Jojo con­fronted him, it still left her shaken. “She re­ally didn’t know what to be­lieve. It made her ques­tion ev­ery­thing.”

In­clud­ing the other guys. Jojo was also forced to doubt the mo­tives of part-time mod­els (and fan fa­vorites!) Grant and Robby. “Jojo found out dur­ing film­ing that Robby had just bro­ken up with a se­ri­ous girl­friend, or still had one when he left to film the show,” says the source. As In Touch pre­vi­ously re­ported, Robby dumped his love of four years, Hope Hig­gin­botham, to join The Bach­e­lorette. “She heard the same kinds of ru­mors about Grant. It got to the point where Jojo didn’t know who or what to be­lieve. By the end of film­ing, she won­dered if any of the guys had come on the show for the right rea­son.”

She’s learn­ing now that her sus­pi­cions were valid. “Watch­ing the show on TV has made Jojo see that so many of the guys are to­tally dif­fer­ent peo­ple than they claimed. It’s like a kick in the gut,” adds the source. “She’s real­iz­ing that they were just re­ally good ac­tors and that her in­stincts were right. Maybe she should have left.” ◼

RE­AL­ITY BITES “Jojo spent a lot of time cry­ing to pro­duc­ers about the hor­ri­ble things she heard about the guys in the house,” says a source. Robby Jor­dan Grant TRIPLE THREAT “Jojo had no idea the guys vy­ing for her heart this sea­son would have so much bag
