“Grocery Store Joe,” aka Joe Amibale, is back!
“I was ready to find love, and I am now because honestly — after the first episode — I never thought I’d have a girlfriend again because I’m, like, 'This is pretty bad,’” he recalled of their initial meeting. As Bachelorette viewers will remember, Joe stepped out of the limo and told Becca, “I’m Joe, and I forgot everything I was going to say to you.”
Despite his less-than-stellar introduction, fans on Twitter cheered for Joe and had the hashtag #justiceforjoe trending that same night. Some even wanted him to be the next Bachelor.
Joe admitted he hopes to last more than one night on BIP! “I really hope I don’t get sent home right away again,” he said. “I think I’ll at least last a day.”
Bachelor in Paradise season 5 premieres tonight at 8pm ET on ABC.
