It’s really not very often on “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” that something like a tabloid story becomes a key component in an episode, and there’s a very specific reason for that in general: Typically, there are no computers or cell phones to the outside world allowed during filming. It would mess up the show’s process, and distract the contestants from the show itself.
Therefore, moving into the next new episode on June 20, it’s going to be interesting to see a major storyline play out that really has to do with something that surfaces in a magazine. Take a look at the attached synopsis below for some further details:
“JoJo must tackle her own [problem] in the media, as she reads a shocking story calling into question her character. Is she able to convince the men that the accusations are wrong and that she really is here for love, or does this doom some of her relationships?”
It’s hard to decipher precisely what the origin of this particular story is without seeing it, but this feels like the show making drama for drama’s sake since there is no way the guys would have known about it. We’re not going to question JoJo’s character here at all, but we do think that for the most part, contestants on these shows have to welcome fame to a certain extent. If they didn’t want people to know who they are, why go through this aggravation? There are thousands of other ways people can meet each other these days that this doesn’t have to be the end-all, be-all when it comes to relationships.
Ultimately, we’re sure that she will handle this just fine, and it will probably have zero impact on the contestants.
