Vinny’s badass mom Gheri stole the show on “The Bachelorette: Men Tell All”

The Bachelorette is an intense, competitive, emotional process, and it’s very important to have awesome people close to you that you can rely on. That’s what we saw as the guys who have already been eliminated by Bachelorette JoJo bickered and reminisced about their season. These guys included Vinny Ventiera, who had his strongest supporter stand up for him last night.

You remember Vinny.

THE BACHELORETTE – “1201” – Successful and stunning real estate developer JoJo Fletcher, 25, gets a second chance at her happily-ever-after, choosing from twenty-six handsome bachelors. After being devastated last season by a shocking rejection from Bachelor Ben Higgins, who confessed his love to both her and Lauren Bushnell, the Texan beauty is ready to leave that heartbreak behind and write her very own love story as the Bachelorette. JoJo will embark on her own journey to find her soul mate when she stars in the 12th edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series, “The Bachelorette,” which will premiere at a special time MONDAY, MAY 23 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

He’s a 28-year-old barber and a DJ, whose real name is Vincent. Vinny was eliminated in Week 5 on a trip to Uruguay.

Vinny came on Men Tell All, sporting a new look.


Vinny wanted to know why JoJo had cancelled the cocktail party on the night of his elimination.

But before he could get an answer, his mom, Gheri, stood up to give JoJo a piece of her mind.


“You keep saying you wanted the greatest guy, there he was.”


“He would’ve never broke you down, broke your heart. Greatest guy.”

JoJo tried to explain, that she really liked Vinny, but in the end, they were just friends. 

Her response prompted this tweet from Vinny:


Chris pushed harder.

Chris: “Did JoJo make a mistake?” Gheri: “Absolutely 100%.”


JoJo’s loss.

Vinny’s clearly pretty proud but also a little jelly of his mom.


But he can’t deny the universal truth: Mom knows best!
