We first spotted 24-year-old Dallas, Texas Real estate Developer Joelle Fletcher 2 years ago when she made a cameo alongside big brother Ready for Love Bachelor Ben Patton. She was only 22-years-old then — not quite ready for a life-partner, but she is now (a full 2 years later) and smoking’ hot —- and now it is her turn to search for love on national television!
Joelle nicknamed “JoJo” has a VERY interesting background and comes from a super tight-knit and successful family.
You may need a flow chart to put the pieces together of this blended family so I will do my best.
To start, Joelle is the daughter of two super-achiever Doctors.
Her dad Dr. Joseph Fletcher is a gastroenterologist (aka he does colonoscopies among other fun things) in Denton, Texas. He got his medical degree from University of Tennessee College of Medicine and has been in practice for 42 years.
Her mother Soraya Fletcher has a PhD from the prestigious Vanderbilt School and is a Nurse Practitioner in Denton, Texas. Interestingly, Soraya was raised in Iran where she met Ben’s father George Patton (Irish background). She is Iranian and is the daughter of a very prominent Iranian businessman.
Soraya and George Patton
Soraya and Ben’s father George escaped the Iranian revolution and came to the US (this is before Joelle was born). The two separated and Ben was primarily raised by his mom. Ben has an older brother named Matt Patton (half brother to Jojo).
Soraya and Joseph Fletcher
Eventually Soraya met her current husband Joseph who already had two children from a previous marriage Peter Fletcher, and Rachel Fletcher and Soraya and Joseph had Jojo.
In addition to her super-achiever parents, she has some super-achiever siblings….
Joelle Fletcher’s brothers and sisters
Joelle’s sister Rachel Fletcher is 30 and is a Registered Nurse at Texas Children’s Hospital and a Registered Nurse at Seton Healthcare Family and lives in Houston, Texas.
Brother Peter Fletcher, 28 is a resident Physician at Banner—University Medical Center.
Half-brother Ben Patton, 34 (that’s right “half”, not “step” like the other sites are claiming—they share a mother) requires his own page because he is a situation unto itself. He starred on NBC’s short-lived version of The Bachelor in 2013. He also dated show producer and A-list Actress Eva Longoria!
As to Joelle’s ethnicity — well we know this from an insider of another reality show — she is Persian. In fact her mom returns to the Middle East quite often to assist poor countries with humanitarian needs.
Then as usual, wherever there is a hot girl, there is an ex boyfriend that we need to investigate. Joelle’s ex is 38-year-old Chad Rookstool owner of Chad Rookstool Salon in Dallas. Chad looks very Christian Btw, because he is really in to Joel Olsteen on Twitter.
Chad is dog sitting for JoJo while she stars on The Bachelor.
Anyhow, that’s the breakdown. If Joelle makes it to Hometowns, it should be very interesting!
