Just twelve days into season 16 of The Bachelorette we watched the lead, Clare Crowley, exit the show after falling in love with suitor Dale Moss. This called for a new lead mid season who [excitedly] became Tayshia Adams. And as if that wasn’t enough to shake up this season, here’s one more thing. Chris Harrison exited too. And how do you recover from a host leaving his own show? Well, you get a new host!
It was confirmed by PEOPLE in August that the former Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher would take on Chris Harrison’s hosting duties at one point in the season.
What was it like for Fletcher getting this call to play a role that she once stood on the opposite end of?
