Do you think being a cupid is an easy job? When it comes to matchmaking, the mythical god of love and desire is believed to be working under disguise. That makes us wonder if shows like these are made to make his job a bit easier; let the Cupid take a break. An all-new season of The Bachelorette has commenced, and there is going to be a lot of “love” in the air. The show is a successful spin-off of ABC’s The Bachelor, and serves the same purpose but with a leading lady. In this version of the dating game show, a girl gets to chose from over two dozens good-looking and compatible men, who all have only one thing in common: they want to win the bachelorette’s heart. And, these men aren’t just any guys from the block. They are sophisticated, charming, and ambitious, which is a winning deal for the bachelorette. To know them better, you have to take a look at The Bachelorette (2016) cast and pick your favorite guy to root for.

Meet the Bachelorette

Last night, we saw the premiere of The Bachelorette season 12, giving us a sneak into what will happen in the 2016 season of ABC’s hit dating show. To start off, The Bachelorette is more of a reality show than a game show. This year, The Bachelorette season 12 will have the lovely Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher as the leading lady. Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher had her heart broken by the one guy she really liked. For those who don’t know, JoJo was part of The Bachelor season 20 (2016) and was even a finalist. Unfortunately, in the finale week, Ben Higgins (the bachelor) picked Lauren Bushnell over JoJo, and the latter was left brokenhearted.

Now, the tables have turned and Joelle has the chance to become the heartbreaker! The news broke out that Joelle Fletcher was the network’s choice as the bachelorette for season 12. Viewers of the show are quite excited to see JoJo as the new bachelorette, wishing that she finds love this time. That’s likely to happen as she will be the one who decides the right man for her. A quick run-through on JoJo has let us know that the 25-year-old is a successful real estate developer from Dallas. And, she has entered The Bachelorette for only one reason: to find her Mr. Right!

Filming of The Bachelorette season 12 was scheduled right after the end of The Bachelor season 20. It began on March 16, and the destinations include the U.S.A, Argentina, and Uruguay. There are also going to be some amazing guest appearances by international celebrities. But, that’s not what matters the most. The viewers are eager to meet The Bachelorette 2016 cast and see how they interact with the beautiful JoJo.

Cast of The Bachelorette (2016)

The cast of The Bachelorette season 12 include 25 men who are here only to mend the broken heart of Joelle and sweep her off her feet. If things go well for JoJo, she  will start “shortlisting” the guys she likes. How it works is the guys will woo JoJo with their charms and build a connection with her. In return, the bachelorette will start spending more time with her favorite guy, become more inclined towards him, and eventually pick him as her man.

So, take a look at the cast of The Bachelorette season 12 and start rooting for your personal favorite among these.
