Warning: The following contains mild spoilers for JoJo Fletcher’s Bachelorette 2016. Proceed with caution!

Bachelorette 2016 showrunner Mike Fleiss wasn’t lying when he said JoJo Fletcher’s been kissing up a storm already — we now have photographic proof!

Though it’s been less than two weeks since production began on Season 12, the Dallas beauty’s said to have smooched no less than “4.5” guys (whatever that means). One of those lucky fellas? Handsome hunk James Taylor!

Before you get too excited, of course 68-year-old musical icon James Taylor did not ditch his wife to be among 25 guys dating on national television. However, this contestant does have something in common with the elder James.

According to Reality Steve, the Katy, Texas native is a musician! We don’t know much else about him just yet, but judging from pics of his swing dancing date with the 25-year-old Bachelorette, she’s really feeling his vibe.

Dressed as a 1940s pin-up — complete with glamorous old Hollywood waves, red lipstick, and a black, polka-dot dress — JoJo looks smitten with her well-dressed date, pulling him in for a steamy makeout during a dance break. Ow ow!

We’re feeling good about this pick for our Southern belle, as he seems quite different (at least physically) from her recent ex, Ben Higgins. Better to move on with someone fresh and new, right?

But, like we said, the real estate developer has had plenty of connections during this season already, so time will tell how far James makes it. He’s certainly got some stiff competition from this guy, from what we hear!

The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 23 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
