‘The Bachelorette’: Did Jimmy Kimmel predict Luke Pell, Jordan Rodgers to be JoJo Fletcher’s winner?
Over the course of “The Bachelor” and of course its sister series in “The Bachelorette,” we’ve seen Jimmy Kimmel posses quite an uncanny knack for picking people who are going to go extremely far or even win their given season of the show. There are certainly plenty of theories out there as to why he’s so good at it, and there have also been plenty of questions regarding why ABC has continued to allow him to come on the air and, intentionally or not, spoil viewers on who the final four are.
There are no spoilers ahead, but as we’ve said, Kimmel often has a tendency to be good at this.
Still with us? Then be aware that on the show, he proclaimed that Jordan Rodgers, Luke Pell, Robby Hayes, and Chase McNary. Of the four, three of them were big players in the premiere in one way or another. Chase was relatively a ghost.
In the end, we feel like there are really two reasons why Jimmy continues to get away with this even when he really shouldn’t at times:
1. It’s comedy – You can get away with a whole lot more when you are funny.
2. ABC probably doesn’t care too much if he is right – The reality here is that this is not a show that is ruined if you know spoilers. They’re all over the internet, and we shouldn’t say that Kimmel has been 100% right with his predictions either. Ultimately, we feel like the network knows that the average viewer doesn’t know what is going to happen, and they can just sit back and enjoy. Also, the edit for the show also makes it clear that there are only a handful of small contenders, so it’s really not a surprise after watching the first night that you would think Jordan would go all the way to the end.
The only difference this year is that Kimmel didn’t pick these people in front of JoJo Fletcher. Therefore, we didn’t see her facial reactions.
