Critic Reviews for The Bachelorette Season 12

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Fortunately, ABC is as self-aware as ever and knows that The People will not be satisfied if they do not get as much screen time with JoJo's wine-guzzling mom, Soraya, as possible.

This season, we watched the Little Marine That Could stand up to Big Bad Chad, who found his one true love in the form of protein powder and lunch meats. We watched Wells struggle to overcome his awkwardness, and we listened to every "eh" Daniel gave us.

This season of The Bachelorette should maybe show us why the Bachelorette herself should be a person with some life experiences and a little maturity. A little perspective could have gone a long way this season.

Such a shame they're not really a couple we're rooting for, am I right Bachelor Nation?! I just DIDNT feel it!

There exists a world in which Chad marries JoJo... This, hellishly, is not the world in which we live.

Damn you, Bachelorette, you've done it to us again!

So, it's Jordan. Honestly, it was always Jordan.

    This is my 2nd favorite season of the Bachelorette and Jojo is one of my top 5 favorite bachelorette's so far. She is such a great person and she is such real person. I loved how she cussed sometimes. I hope her and Jordan get married and live together forever happily.
