Meet the new Bachelorette, JoJosephina! Kristen Wiig hilariously impersonated JoJo Fletcher on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday, July 13, and the parody was pure gold. The comedian, 42, explained what really happens in the fantasy suites on the ABC dating show and nicknamed the four remaining Bachelorette suitors.
Wearing a glittery gold Jovani gown totally reminiscent of Fletcher’s dress from the premiere episode, Wiig revealed that JoJo is short for JoJosephina and dove right into answering a question about the romantic overnight dates. “That’s where I go on dates and we close the door,” she said. “Sometimes we kiss a little or we, like, rub each other. … It’s a show so we have to pretend, but sometimes we go all the way.”
The Ghostbusters star, as JoJosephina, even talked about Ben Higgins, who left the real Fletcher heartbroken in Jamaica in the final episode of The Bachelor earlier this year. “That was tough, when I was on The Bachelor,” she said. “I loved him. … Ben, you know, we went through a lot. You promised me things. I just feel hurt, and look at me now!”
When Fallon held up photos of the four remaining men vying for Fletcher’s final rose, Wiig was forced to nickname each of them since she had no idea what their actual names were. Luke Pell got dubbed “Scotchy,” because he drinks scotch and eats butterscotch, the comedian said.
As for Jordan Rodgers, Wiig said, “I call him ‘Mark Hamill’ because he reminds me of Mark Hamill from Star Wars. He looks exactly like Luke Skywalker.” Another possibility, “Jor Jor Binks. He is crazy about Star Wars!” she exclaimed.
Chase McNary was called “Deucey” by Wiig, and Robby Hayes was nicknamed “Korn” for his love of the metal band. Wiig immediately chose Hayes as her favorite based on the pics.
Luckily, the real JoJo Fletcher thought the skit was just as funny as everyone else. “Unfortunately had to bump Kristen Wiig, but it was great having JoJo from The Bachelorette stop by!” Fallon tweeted Thursday, July 14. “Hahaha Amazing. @jimmyfallon,” Fletcher responded on Twitter.
