Even before JoJo risked it all with Ben Higgins and was left heartbroken in the Season 12 finale, there was another man in her life.

As she mentioned on the show, she went through a breakup three months before starting filming with a guy by the name of Chad Rookstool.

Though JoJo insisted she was over him and ready to find love with the Bachelor, that didn't stop Chad from trying to woo her back during her Hometown Date!

There have also been some (unconfirmed) reports Chad was in talks to star on the former Bravo reality show, Most Eligible Dallas, prior to dating our girl, Joelle. Oh, and there's a bit of an age gap here, as he's in his late 30s.

Aside from the ghosts of boyfriends past, JoJo's Bachelorette suitors have to contend with another couple of hunks — her overprotective big brothers, Matt and Ben Patton!

The brunette babe is super family-oriented, and she's constantly sharing pics with these handsome fellas, whom she calls “the two I love the most.”
