‘Bachelor’ Fans Joke That JoJo Fletcher’s Brothers Are Coming After Ben Higgins

Run for the hills, Higgins! Bachelor fans were devastated for JoJo Fletcher when Ben Higgins proposed to Lauren Bushnell on the season 20 finale on Monday, March 14, but they also found humor in the dramatic and emotional split. Following Higgins’ difficult decision, Bachelor Nation teased that Fletcher’s overprotective brothers Ben and Matt would come back with a vengeance.

One of the biggest highlights on this season of The Bachelor was when Higgins, 26, met Fletcher’s family during their hometown date. The Denver native was fairly well-received by her parents, Soraya and Joseph, but brutally critiqued by her siblings.

“You brainwash these girls way too much, man. To see my sister like that … she’s obviously starting to have real emotional feelings, but I don’t get the same read [from you],” Matt said at the time. “There’s also that God-given intuition, that two-second thing that we’ve all been given. And I don’t know if you were coached on your answer, or what it is, but just as a brother, I think you can appreciate that [I heard you say] … ‘There’s four girls — I can’t give you guys anything.’ So when I hear that as a brother, I’m like, ‘Dude, my sister is way more into this guy than he is into her.'”

Higgins was surprised by the pushback. The awkward visit left Fletcher in tears and Higgins shaky about their relationship, though he later went on to say “I love you” to both Fletcher and Bushnell.

The cringeworthy incident also left a lasting impression on viewers. “Ben plans on marrying Lauren B. tonight because he knows JoJo’s brothers have started the manhunt to kill him. #TheBachelor,” one commenter wrote following the finale on Monday night.

A second added: “You know JoJo’s brothers are both there in case they need to jump Ben after the show. #TeamJoJo @JoelleFletcher.”
