The Bachelorette JoJo Season 12 Episode 5, shew let’s get into it.
We find ourselves in Buenos Aires. JoJo looks amazing.
She and Chris have a chat, and she mentions Robby telling her that he loved her, and she says that hasn’t always worked out well for her! She says, what if I fall in love with two people like Ben did, and she says, I can see how that happened, and Chris says the irony. The guys show up and find Chris in the streets. Chris tells them that there will be 3 dates: a group date, a one on one, and another 2 on 1 date, the guys unravel right before our eyes. The guys head to their amazing hotel! Alvear Palace, the hotel looks awesome!
Date card – Robby reads it – Wells – Besame, Besame Muchacho Love JoJo (Kiss me, Kiss me, Man)…He tells them all he thinks, he is the only guy there who hasn’t kissed JoJo yet! JoJo shows up, and the guys are all still teasing Wells. The guys are still talking about it when they leave, and saying how nervous Wells seemed.
One on One Date
Wells and JoJo are walking around the city.
They are going to a show called Fuerza Bruta (Brute Force). They walk in and it is very cirque du soleil-ish and there is a stage above them and scantily clad people “swimming” in it. They then act some of the scenes and have a grandma peck on the cheek. Wells and JoJo actually get in the water. He goes in for the kiss, and it isn’t happening. Finally, JoJo makes the move. I am sorry – it looked like she made that move to me…
They both say how erotic it was.
It is now dinner time, for JoJo and Wells. He tells her, that they are very different, he says a lot of nothing. JoJo says, he is a very interesting person. JoJo asks about his ex. Wells says it was a long relationship (4 years), he says at the end they were friends just living together. Clearly, romance is an issue for Wells. JoJo says she has been in loveless relationships, and she doesn’t want that again.
The date card arrives at the hotel. Jordan reads it, and Luke, Robby, Jordan, James and Alex – Living la vida boca Love JoJo. Chase and Derek have the 2 on 1.
Now back to Wells and JoJo, she asks him what is the core thing he wants in a relationship, he wants honesty. JoJo tells Wells, she is looking for love that doesn’t get tired. She wants the unicorn. JoJo says he is a friend, and doesn’t give him the rose. She really seems genuinely sad, and clearly has a lot of feelings for Wells, as a friend and she cares about him. He does the Wells thing, and hugs her. Wells is so sweet.
JoJo tells us that she will miss Wells, and she goes and watches the show alone, it is quite sad.
James is feeling less confident. He says I am not a hot, sexy guy.
They walk around the town, and end up at a soccer game. The guys have to make a goal, to get to kiss JoJo.
James is the only one to get the goal!
James is so cute, he says he would be on cloud 10 if he got the group date rose! Naturally, all of the guys think they are going to get the group date rose.
Luke and JoJo really seem to have a great connection. JoJo even tells us that the spark between them is CRAY-ZEE.
Date card arrives – Derek and Chase – It takes Two Love JoJo. They both of course think, they are gonna win/come out with a rose.
James and JoJo are heading down some steps to a cushy seat. James somehow feels the need to tell JoJo how it is with some of the people in the house. Has he never watched this show?? That never goes over too well. James specifically mentions Jordan, he says he is a celebrity and entitled. They make out. Of course, JoJo goes to the guys and grabs Jordan. Of course, she tells hims what James said. Why do they do that? Does she think, Jordan isn’t going to go back and take it out on James? Jordan says he isn’t entitled, and everyone says that about him. She says, she wants to be engaged, and she wants this situation to work. Jordan is hurt, and thought he was friends with James.
Jordan comes back and sits next to James, and it is very awkward. Robby, James and Alex are all like, what is up? He has a shit eating grin on, and asks James how his time went, and if his name came up at all. AWKWARD.
JoJo comes in and says she wanted the evening to be relaxed and fun, but knew it would be serious, she wants to give the rose to someone who makes her feel special and excited about the future – and gives it to Luke.
2 on 1 date
They are going to Tango. 3 person Tango! The instructor says you need passion and trust in your partner.
This date is made even more awkward. Derek and JoJo seem to have more passion in the dancing. Derek and Chase end up dancing too. Weird.
JoJo asks to take to Derek first at dinner. Derek tells JoJo he really felt the passion with her during the dancing. JoJo says he fell back a bit after his one on one date, and she was worried about that. JoJo asks him if that is how he really is, or is it more because of the environment. Derek tells her from day 1, he looked into her eyes, and tells her he is falling for her, and that he felt that all day. They make out. She says that she is glad he is telling her these things, because that makes her feel special. They make out, some more.
Chase and JoJo walk away. Shew Chase seems uptight. JoJo says, she told Chase last week that she had strong feelings for him, and she didn’t feel like he reciprocated that, and he is blown away. He can’t believe that she feels that way. He says it is hard to be committed when there are so many guys. Chase tells her this is new for him, and that he is shocked by how fast he has felt these things for JoJo and he wants his future to involve JoJo, he came here because of her, they make out. She says, just as much as you need validation, she needs it too.
JoJo says, she likes both of these guys, and can see a future with both of them. She tells Derek that she is thankful for their conversation and that she was happy to reconnect with him. She tells Chase that she appreciated him opening up to her. Chase gets the rose. Derek is upset, JoJo is upset. She asks to walk him out. He tells her he hopes she finds her forever.
Derek does his exit interview in third person, that is a annoying.
JoJo and Chase listen to some music and some weird lady singing, all the while Derek is talking about himself in the exit limo/van. Don’t cry for me Argentina. The producers are cheesy this season for sure! They love irony!
Cocktail Party and Rose Ceremony
Three roses are up for grabs and there are four people. Jordan takes JoJo right away. He lays it all on the table and says he is open to falling in love and in love and engaged at the end of this, he says he thinks they can there. He says he sees her as the person he wants to be with and fall more in love with her everyday. She is ecstatic, and says it is different for him to talk about his feelings.
Luke and Chase who both have roses, say they still feel like having conversations. Alex is sweating it, he says he hasn’t had any one on one time with her. They make out. Their making out always seems awkward.
You do see Robby and JoJo chatting, but I don’t remember anything about it – sorry Robby.
James and JoJo chat, he says he is really falling for her, and they make out. He tells the camera he feels like he is on the chopping block.

JoJo tells the guys, she needs some time, to make her decision. She says she isn’t sure and that is scary. She tells them that this is the hardest decision she has had to make.
Robby and Jordan get roses and then there is a dramatic pause. JoJo walks away and isn’t sure what she is doing. She tells Chris she doesn’t want to give this last rose out so she gives it to Chris.
I was fooled, I thought she was getting rid of both James and Alex, in fact I made the collage of the two of them. James is so excited to still be there, on the other hand Alex is still reeling, and says this was a pity rose. Jerk.
