Rumors are floating in the reality TV circuit that 2016 Bachelorette JoJo has a Burnet beau.
JoJo Fletcher, a real estate developer hailing from Dallas, hopes to find love on this season of the Bachelorette, premiering Monday, May 23, and one of the contestants in rumored to be Burnet native and U.S. Army veteran Luke Pell.
Reality television commentator “Reality Steve,” who has predicted the endings of nine seasons of the hit reality television show, The Bachelorette, said on his website that Pell had been seen with Fletcher on a date in Greensburg, Pa.
“As for last night, JoJo and her date Luke showed up for the Dan + Shay concert at around 11:45 p.m. local time, a good two hours and 45 minutes after they let people in the venue,” he said.
On Monday, April 11, Reality Steve reported that Pell was one of eight contestants remaining. Photos of a man resembling Pell were posted on Reality Steve's social media feed.
Pell, 31, graduated from Burnet High School, West Point Academy in 2007, served as an Army officer overseas for five years, and now lives in Nashville, Tenn. Where he has a career as a country artist. Pell performed locally for the Burnet Summer Music Concert Series in June 2014, and more recently at the Marble Falls Community Firework Celebration in July 2015.
Pell's parents, Burnet residents, were contacted regarding the rumors but refrained from making comment.
