'The Bachelorette' 2016 Spoilers From The Show's Creator Promise Most Dramatic Season Yet
The Bachelorette creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss has been tweeting up a storm during the filming of the upcoming season, and he's dropping all kinds of hints about what's going on with JoJo Fletcher and the guys fighting it out for a chance to date her. These Bachelorette 2016 spoilers from the creator of the show might ramp up your excitement more than they reveal anything juicy, but there's more than enough here to get amped for the new season.
Whether it's praising JoJo, keeping a kiss count, or shadily calling out one of the guys, Mike Fleiss has been serving all the behind the scenes info you could want. He's basically the Gossip Girl of The Bachelorette, just with a less breathy voiceover. He narrated the first night, the first group date, and provided a few pictures to pique fan curiosity. If you're looking for a complete rundown of every single thing that happens on the show before you get to see it, Fleiss' tweets might prove a little unsatisfying – but what's the fun of knowing everything before it happens?
Here are some of the more revealing things he had to say, along with some tweets that'll just leave fans curious for answers.
Wild group of dude's. Some great ones for sure... Some seem to be a little too into JoJo. #clinger— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) March 16, 2016
First kiss!!!— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) March 17, 2016
Fleiss started his long, long line of live tweets by diving into the very first night, when JoJo met all of the guys for the first time. Fleiss noted that one guy did something unicorn-related in his intro ("Another unicorn???" in Fleiss' exact words) in an homage to JoJo's own first appearance. Fleiss also revealed that the first kiss happens the first night – he just didn't say with who.
The first group date was hot, hot, hot!!! #makesmericahotagain— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) March 19, 2016
Now JoJo is on a 1-on-1 with a real nice guy. But he could use a shave...— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) March 19, 2016
He also revealed just a little bit about the dates, mentioning which ones were going well (sadly, sans identifying factors) and which were "going to the dogs" – or is that a hint that puppies are involved? I hope it is.
JoJo is taking this very seriously. She really did love @benhiggi and wants what Lauren has...— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) March 18, 2016
JoJo told me that she sees marriage material in 6 or 7 of the guys... I think she is gonna find love!!! #Bachelorette— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) March 26, 2016
JoJo just told me that her biggest fear is being rejected again and ending up alone. But most of the guys seem to be falling for her...— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) March 31, 2016
Fleiss took time out to give updates on JoJo's state of mind, too. He reassured fans often that she was happy and having a good time, but also gave some insight into her insecurities. After her experience on The Bachelor, it's no surprise that JoJo would be a little reticent to get attached again, but if Fleiss' tweets are anything to go by, she gets over those nerves pretty quickly.
Two of the guys nearly came to blows last night... #Bachelorette— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) March 22, 2016
Not sure all the guys are here for the right reason. JoJo is very smart. She'll make good decisions... #TheBachelorette— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) April 11, 2016
It looks like this season is also going to be bringing the drama in a major way; Fleiss agreed with a fan who said it looks like the most dramatic season yet. Emotions are riding high on the set of The Bachelorette, with fights almost breaking out and a lot of crying – or "mancry," as Fleiss put it. Apparently crying is like guyliner, and it needs to be dude-ified to make it acceptable for men to do it.
Love is also in the air, it seems, as Fleiss helpfully confirms that at least one person falls in love this season. It's just impossible to tell yet whether or not that someone is JoJo.
JoJo just did something I can hardly believe... #TheBachelorette— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) May 1, 2016
This isn't even all the information Fleiss had to give – there were mentions made of beautiful locales, tense five-hour flights and unique home visits. Not of it was elaborated on in great detail, but it was promising nonetheless.
And in case you were wondering, that kiss total ended up at around eight. Not too shabby, JoJo.
After further review, both the upper and lower lips made contact, making it a legal kiss. Kiss total... 8!!!— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) April 15, 2016
XOXO, Gossip Fleiss.
