Official ABC site for Bachelorette
The episode before the one discussed here had Jojo stopping the distribution of roses, leaving six contenders left.
This was odd and became even odder when Jojo took Alex on a one-on-one date and sent him during the date even though the giving of a rose to a one-on-one moving on was not supposed to happen.
Alex did not have a one-on-one date and I suspect that's why Jojo didn't want to drop him in that prior episode.
She seem to think he was lying when he told her he loved her on the one-on-one date.
James, sweet James Taylor, singer and song-writer, but not the famous one, was sent home by Jojo.
I distinctly recall a snippet of a conversation he had with Jojo when he said he thought Jojo and he had a "sweet" relationship.
Man you got a bunch of guys competing against you for a lady's hand, you better be feeling more than "sweet".
Besides, James does not seem to be overly employed and frankly he's not all that good looking.
So let's look at the four guys left.
First there's Jordan and there's been some controversy about Jordon. Even the tabloids reveal that while Jordan declares he was once a quarterback, that never happened. He tried out to be a quarterback but did not make the team.
JordanSo Jordan is quite handsome and above is his biography. I'd be surprised if Jojo picked Jordan.

Next we have Chase, the only one of the final four that seems to have any kind of regular paying job.
ChaseChase is a nice guy but I still don't think Jojo will pick him. I do think Chase might well be one of the final two.

Next, Robby, the recipient of the group date rose, a good sign.
Occupation: Former Competitive Swimmer

All-time favorite movies: Man on Fire, The Wolf of Wall Street, Interstellar
If you could have lunch with one person, who would it be and why? My grandfather on my mom’s side who I never had the chance to meet. My mom speaks so highly of him and tells me we are extremely similar in the men we grew to become.

Do you consider yourself a romantic and why? Hopeless romantic. Because there is nothing more satisfying than a genuine, big smile from the girl you would give the world to.
Now unless a "former competitive swimmer" has a job that pays, they are still only a FORMER competitive swimmer.
I think Robby is kind of a wimp and Jojo only gave him a rose to save his feelings.
Now we come down to the guy who SHOULD win, at least as I see it.

If you could be any superhero, which one would you be and why? Superman, because he’s got swag and powers.
I hate it when my date…: Talks about an ex, can’t make up her mind, or name drops.
If you could be someone else for just one day, who would it be and why? POTUS, just to know the context of being the leader of the free world.
What does being married mean to you? It means two people who consider themselves best friends, lovers and soulmates, decide to take on life together and build a life and family of their own.
He also taught Jojo how to shoot that skeet.
Now Luke also appears to not have any gainful employment. It says he is a "war veteran" but I don't think that's any kind of paying occupation.
I'm sure Luke has some kind of job as probably do the former Quarterback and competitive swimmer.
I predict….Bachelor for this year's Bachelorette, JoJo-LUKE!
Chase is second place chance.
