Jojo - Anyone else feel like she is a Diva?

Post by h28koala on Tue Jul 12, 2016 2:50 pm

Hi,

Disclaimer here - I don't dislike JoJo but I don't like her either. 

I really didn't like her that much on Ben's season.  I found that she always looks like she has smelled something bad, seemed neurotic, and I didn't think she was that attractive.  However I thought her post bach interviews were intelligent so I am neutral.  She was the best pick from last season for SURE!  I was afraid Caitlyn the perpetual smiler was going to get it.  Jojo at least is more interesting to watch.

I read an article that JoJo has been the most demanding bachelorette and a real Diva, and I realized - that's it!  That is why I haven't connected with her.  I think that she is demanding and all about her all the time.  Even with some of the guys she is curt and almost rude at times when it is something she doesn't want or doesn't want to do.  Maybe I am just reading her wrong?  What does everyone else think about her?  She isn't on the drama llama level of Deanna Pappas, but I feel like she thinks she is a legit celebrity and should be treated as such.  Disagree?  Agree?  Help me like her?

What kinds of things has she demanded?  She seems confident but almost rehearsed in the way she talks to the guys.  I think she is quite pretty, but I would like to see her with a little less makeup.  She has had pretty clothes and looks beautiful in those gowns.  I think she has had a privileged life so maybe there is some diva attitude that you see.  Emily Maynard was pretty demanding.  I didn't think anybody would top her.

Yes I think the life she led has made her feel entitled. I hope that the man she does marry some day can live up to her expectations.

Hi Mule - I agree, her gowns have been stunning, the best on the show by far for a bachelorette.  That makes sense that she has a sense of entitlement and that is what we are picking up on.  I don't own the article but the producers said she was really demanding, I think in regards to being treated like a Diva - wanting certain things all the time or she would leave the show.  Although maybe that is a good thing?  I would believe that Emily Maynard was as well.  I mean you should be able to dictate what you need and what you want to be happy, not sure when it tips into being a diva.  However I loved Emily and I just can't warm to Jojo.  It would be nice to see her with less makeup, I think her bosoms are surgically enhanced as well.  They probably all are surgically enhanced and I just never thought about it before.  She does seem rehearsed but I don't think as badly as Andi during her season - she was like a newscaster.

Emily alienated me - from the bleached hair and plastered make-up to the phony southern accent.  I skipped her season.  She was a constructed entity.

JoJo seems phony in other ways.  I haven't noticed too much makeup, but the lack of tears when she's crying tells me she's acting - and not very well.

I don't think that it looks like she wears a lot of make-up but she does seem to make her own rules on the show. I don't know if that is necessarily a bad thing though. She doesn't seem to play by the book as much as some others did in the past but maybe she just cuts through the bull and gets to the point of things. I do agree though that she seems a bit abrupt with the guys who she doesn't see a future with, nothing gentle about the way that she has gotten rid of some of them. Partially because of this, I don't believe her tears for one second. The tears and her upset seem phony but overall, I like her.

I don't see her as a Diva.  She may seem demanding to TPTB but that may just be because she is watching out for herself and probably draws the line on some things.  She said in an interview that they had her crying a lot this season and you could tell it was an act but she didn't do any worse than the other bachelorettes when it came to crying and no tears.  She did at least get some tears out a few times this season.  I was not a JoJo fan going into this season but so far she has not made me want to switch channels because of her - the fake drama with the guys is another thing though.

I like Jojo enough but not nearly as much as I liked Emily. I don't necessarily get the vibe that Jojo is a diva or demanding. The way I see it, if you are the star of the show then you should be demanding...you are giving the producers free reign to do whatever they want so you might as well get whatever you want in the process.

If I was the ette, one of my demands would be a Channing Tatum look like waiting for me in me bedroom every night...to help me distress from a tough day of filming...Wink

Ummm, I think you mean "de-stress" and not "distress."  LOL.

I don't think JoJo seems demanding.  Like others said, she came from a privileged background, but I think she is very down to earth.  If I didn't know any better, I wouldn't guess she came from a rich family.  Kaitlyn also called the shots on her season, though I don't know if anyone thought she was demanding.  But people had other kinds of complaints about her.
