JoJo Fletcher’s History With Jake Pavelka Revealed!


JoJo Fletcher has a history with a guy in Bachelor Nation...and we're not talking about Ben Higgins.

NEWS: Everything That Happens in JoJo's Bachelorette Premiere

The Bachelorette 2016 has a relationship with Season 14 star Jake Pavelka! But we use the word relationship very loosely. The two reportedly know each other because JoJo's brothers Ben and Matt Patton went to school with Jake.

So, the leading lady has spent plenty of time with the "On the Wings of Love" Bachelor in the past. And now she'll be seeing him in the mansion too!

According to Reality Steve, the "unexpected visitor" in the ABC press release for the premiere is none other than Jake.

"And no, he wasn’t on the show competing for JoJo, although I’m sure they’ll make it seem like the guys thought he was. Jake has known JoJo and her family for years, so basically it was just a stunt to pull off to freak out the guys, but Jake does not compete for JoJo. He’s just there to lend advice," Steve explains.

Fun day shooting with @benpatton and @jakepavelka1!

NEWS: Which of JoJo’s Guys Are Heading to Paradise?

To make the Bachelor world even more connected, we discovered through some Instagram browsing that JoJo's brothers are also chummy with Sean and Catherine Lowe! Or at least they were all part of the same wedding a few years ago.

This season needs to have more "surprise guests," considering JoJo's family is clearly well connected in the Bachelor world!

The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 23 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
