See ‘Bachelorette’ Viewing Parties From Us Weekly Readers!

Thanks for inviting Us! Bachelor Nation fans gave Us Weekly a sneak peek into their Bachelorette viewing parties this week — and they didn't hold back!

From gal pals to, well, dogs, the dedicated crowd was ready to cheer on JoJo Fletcher as she began her search for love in the season 12 premiere. Even Bachelorette alum Arie Luyendyk Jr. gave his two cents about the episode.

As previously reported, Luyendyk, Jr., 34, was in the running to be the next Bachelor in season 19, but lost out to Iowa farmer Chris Soules. The auto racing driver was the runner-up during Emily Maynard's Bachelorette season in 2012.

Like many other fans, Luyendyk Jr. was shocked on Monday when former Bachelor Jake Pavelka returned to the ABC series to give Fletcher, 25, love advice. "I can't believe that Jake guy's coming back here," he said in his home video.

Luyendyk Jr. wasn't impressed with Fletcher's suitor Jordan Rodgers either. "I don't trust him," he said of Aaron Rodgers' younger brother, who got the coveted first impression rose. "Don't know why, but I don't trust him."

The Bachelorette airs Mondays on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
