JoJo the Singer Mocks Those Comparing Her to 'Bachelor' Contestant JoJo Fletcher: 'We Are Both White Women'
By Rachel McRady
As Bachelor Ben Higgins struggled with whether Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher was the one during the finale of the ABC reality show on Monday night, JoJo the singer was sick of being compared to the future Bachelorette.
On Monday, she responded to one Twitter commenter who shared a side-by-side photo of the two with Bachelor alum Catherine Giudici, writing, “@clmgiudici Do you see the resemblance between @iamjojo and @JoelleFletcher!?!? #TheBachelor.” JoJo, whose full name is Joanna Noelle Blagden Levesque, replied, “We are both white women.”
As for Fletcher, don’t feel too sorry for her. On Monday night it was announced that she would be the next Bachelorette after previously eliminated contestant Caila Quinn was rumored to have the gig locked down.
A source tells ET that both girls filmed their introductions before producers made a “last-minute” decision to pick Fletcher to head up the show. Higgins smiled and clapped for Fletcher when the announcement was made during the After the Final Rose show after confessing he loved her in the finale.
But the Bachelor is very happy with his pick in fiancée, Lauren Bushnell, putting a giant Neil Lane ring on it. The actual proposal took place in November and Higgins and Bushnell were in hiding until Monday night.
