A sparkly dress, an exotic location and a final rose. The season 12 finale of The Bachelorette is here, and viewers will finally find out who JoJo Fletcher will end up with — Jordan Rodgers or Robby Hayes.
The three-hour special will air on ABC Monday, August 1, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET. The first two hours will highlight the real estate developer’s final days on the show with her two guys, and the last hour will feature the After the Final Rose live special, which will look back at Fletcher’s journey as she searched for her “forever love.” The 25-year-old has been increasingly torn between the former NFL quarterback, 27, who received the first impression rose on night one, and the former competitive swimmer, 27, who was the first of all the men to tell Fletcher he was in love with her.
During the finale episode, both men will get an opportunity to meet Fletcher’s family — and we absolutely cannot wait to see her overprotective brothers and wine-loving mom again! Last season when Fletcher was competing for Ben Higgins’ heart, her brothers, Ben and Matt, brutally criticized Higgins and accused him of “brainwashing” their sister. Meanwhile, her mom, Soraya, was spotted chugging wine straight from the bottle to cope with the stressful situation, so Fletcher is probably hoping this meet-the-parents goes a little more smoothly.
Fletcher will also get a one-on-one date with each of her suitors in Thailand before she decides who will receive her final rose. While she mulls over the biggest decision of her life, both men will meet with resident Bachelor and Bachelorette jeweler Neil Lane to pick out an engagement ring for their potential bride-to-be. In a sneak peek of the episode, Rodgers says he’s “nervous” and “scared” while looking at the diamonds.
Once fans find out whether Fletcher is engaged, she will appear on ATFR along with Hayes and Rodgers. They will all take turns sitting down with host Chris Harrison to discuss where they are now and look back at their relationships during the show.
Last week on the Men Tell All special, Fletcher said she’s “very happy” with the man she chose, and praised her “really amazing journey.” She also confronted her cast-offs Chase McNary and Luke Pell, and explained why she sent both men home immediately after they finally opened up and said “I love you.” McNary and Pell have both said they’d be interested in taking on the role of the Bachelor next season.
