The Bachelor concluded last night, leaving Ben Higgins with a fiancée (Lauren B.) and a new Bachelorette, runner-up JoJo Fletcher.

The announcement was made on Monday’s live The Bachelor: After The Final Rose special.

It was previously speculated that third runner-up Caila Quinn would be the next Bachelorette after she was seen filming in her hometown in Ohio, but nope. The 24-year-old Dallas-based real estate developer told Chris Harrison that being the next Bachelorette is “crazy,” but that she’s “excited.”

As the season 12 Bachelorette, Fletcher follows most recent Bachelorettes Kaitlyn Bristowe (2015, season 11), Andi Dorfman (2014, season 10), and Desiree Hartsock (2013, season 9).
