Questioning those intentions. Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss took to Twitter on Monday, April 11, to share more behind-the-scenes scoop about the upcoming season of ABC's The Bachelorette and its star, JoJo Fletcher.

The executive producer, 51, posted a photo of the Texas-raised beauty, 25, lounging in gray sweatpants and a crocheted, fringed crop top. "JoJo spreading her wings…" Fless shared.

He added in a follow-up tweet: "Not sure all the guys are here for the right reason. JoJo is very smart. She'll make good decisions… #TheBachelorette."

Fleiss, after all, has been exposed to a wide range of contestants over the years, starting with inaugural season of The Bachelor starring Alex Michel back in 2002. Some of these competitors have gone on the show to find love while others have sought the spotlight. 

His franchise, however, helped the very first Bachelorette, Trista Sutter, find her significant other in 2003, along with a sprinkle of others over the past decade, including Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici, Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum and Chris Siegfried and Desiree Hartsock.

Though Fletcher hasn't picked her winner yet, the season 12 lead revealed on Good Morning America last month that she's connecting with her suitors. "I’m having fun with them. I’m actually feeling feelings, which I didn’t expect so early on," she said on March 25. “I want to be engaged. I want marriage. I want a family, so I feel like this could happen right now."

Us Weekly exclusively revealed last month that one of Fletcher's front-runners is Jordan Rodgers, the younger brother of NFL hunk Aaron Rodgers.

"He and JoJo are really hitting it off," a show source previously told Us. However, Rodgers has some fierce competition for the final rose. Fleiss teased last month that the real estate developer has her pick of a group of hotties.

"According to our female crew members, this is one of the hottest casts we've ever had," the executive producer tweeted on March 21. "#makeamericahotagain."

The Bachelorette premieres at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Monday, May 23.
