If anyone knows what it’s like to juggle multiple suitors in front of millions of people it’s former Bachelorette Jillan Harris. So naturally, when Hello! caught up with the Canadian beauty on the set of her Mr. Clean’s Dirty Little Secrets campaign, we had to ask her to share some tips for the show’s incoming leading lady, JoJo Fletcher. “I just hope that she can ignore the chitter chatter and just focus on her experience,” admits the Alberta native.
Jillian also hopes that JoJo puts herself first. “You just have to [have the mindset] like, ‘The most important thing is figuring out what’s right for me,” says the season five star. “I hope that she is able to do that.” The 36-year-old has since moved on from her reality dating show days, finding love with fellow Canadian Justin Pasutto. The lovebirds have been going strong for four years and recently announced that they are expecting their first child together.
Surprisingly, it’s another Canadian bachelorette who Jillian hopes JoJo emulates. “I really adored what Kaitlyn Bristowe did when she was the bachelorette. I think that she was off the cuff and she did what was right for her. She didn’t worry about what people did or thought about her and I think that it ultimately helped her find the right person."
While JoJo, 25, didn’t get her happy ending with BachelorBen Higgins this season, the brunette beauty will get another chance at finding love later this year. Host Chris Harrison made the exciting announcement during the season finale's after show on Monday (Mar. 14).
