"The Bachelorette" 2016 Cast

Tonight is the season 12 premiere of The Bachelorette 2016 with a whole new round of crazy contestants in the mix. When it comes to the range of men involved in the show this season, star JoJo Fletcher told The Hollywood Reporter: We have a great group of men. I think there is a little bit more diversity in my group. To be honest, I can’t remember all of the other seasons before me, so I don’t know how much diversity was there, but I can definitely say I have a very diverse group of men. They come from very different parts of life, and they all bring a lot to the table. So, does JoJo find love this season? If you want answers about the 2016 winner, click here for our season spoilers. Now let's get into the premiere episode ... Former Bachelorettes Kaitlyn Bristowe, Desiree Hartsock Siegfried and Ali Fedotowsky make an appearance to offer advice to JoJo before she embarks on her journey. Then of course, we get to meet this year's contestants. The official ABC synopsis reads: A nervous but beaming Bachelorette is blown away by the lengths some of the bachelors go to create a memorable first meeting. One southern gentleman uses his guitar to charm JoJo with a song he wrote for her. A DJ brings a classic R&B group, All-4-One, to serenade her. One shy man shows off his Scottish heritage – and legs – by wearing a kilt. But one bachelor really stands out by riding in on a unicorn, harkening back to JoJo’s own entrance on “The Bachelor" ... The men continue to try and dazzle the Bachelorette during their one-on-one time. One bachelor steals her away and attempts to wow her with some push-ups. Some guys are so overwhelmed that they get off to an awkward start: One man asks for a kiss too soon and another has such an immediate attraction to Jojo, it leads to the first kiss of the season. The pressure mounts as Chris Harrison brings out the first impression rose, leading to some drunken antics by three inebriated men. JoJo wonders if some of these guys are here to meet her or just party. However, she does find a bachelor who deserves the first impression rose and he accepts it quite happily as his jealous contemporaries look on ... After the night is over, 20 men remain to try and become the love of JoJo’s life.
