Serena’s history on the franchise
Serena Pitt made her franchise debut first on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor. While she made a really good impression on Matt, she ultimately decided to quit the show and leave on her own accord.
She explained her decision to Matt and said that she just wasn’t 100% in the relationship, and while she deserves to have someone 100% in, so does he.
Serena went on to explain to Matt that her gut and heart said he wasn’t her person, and she had to trust that. Matt was disappointed and upset with Serena’s decision but also understood.
How did Joe get to where he is now?
Joe Amabile, also known in the franchise as Grocery Store Joe, first made his appearance on Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette.
While he quickly became a fan favorite, he and Becca just didn’t click. Even though he was eliminated during Week 1 of the show, fans loved him.
Joe was invited back to Bachelor in Paradise for Season 5, where he fell in love with Kendall Long. While the two continued their relationship outside of the show, it didn’t end up lasting. This, then, led to his appearance two summers later where he ended up with Serena.
Bachelor Nation has been rooting for Joe and Serena from the first time they got together on BIP and can’t wait to see where the future takes them as a couple.
The Bachelorette premieres Monday, July 11th, on ABC.
