JoJo Fletcher is getting emotional on Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette.
After being told that she didn’t truly love Ben Higgins during the last season of The Bachelor, on which she was the runner-up, JoJo breaks down in tears, clearly distraught over the accusation.
“Coming on to last season [of The Bachelor] was the best thing that could’ve happened to me because I realized I don’t deserve people like that in my life,” JoJo says through tears, “and for him to say that I never really loved Ben, that really pisses me the f*** off because that probably was the truest form of love that I felt.”
“I felt respected. I was happy. It was a good love and to be dragged back to that, that’s such a terrible time in my life. I’m mad,” JoJo says, not divulging details on the moment in question. “It’s not fair.”
In another sneak peek from the episode, JoJo confronts one of her suitors, frontrunner Jordan Rodgers, about rumors that he cheated on an ex-girlfriend. The 25-year-old Bachelorette approaches Jordan, asking him about their issues with “some trust stuff.”
Jordan, to say the least, doesn’t look too happy, taking a sip of his drink: “It’s just, uh, interesting. I don’t know what to say there.”
When JoJo brings up the fact that he told her earlier in the day that he was ready for marriage, “but that you weren’t before,” she asks: “Why now?”
“Unfortunately it has a lot to with sports. I was focused on one thing in my life: being the best football player I could be. When I wasn’t, that was tough and I took it out on people,” Jordan admits. “So she was on for the rollercoaster of when I was at my best and when I was at my worst. I will be the first to admit that I was awful. I wasn’t the best person all the time.”
JoJo then asks Jordan, point blank: “Was there cheating?”
While viewers will have to wait a few more days to see how Jordan responds, on a lighter note, JoJo channels her inner daredevil when she and suitor Robby Hayes go cliff-diving.
“It’s scary to put yourself out there, but it was then that I realized that I trust Robby,” JoJo says after they jump off the cliff. “I feel alive.”
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
