JoJo Fletcher had no hard feelings toward her almost-fiance Ben Higgins when she began filming The Bachelorette. On the contrary, she hoped to find a man just like him.

"Obviously she had her heart broken with Ben," The Bachelorette host Chris Harrison told E! News of Fletcher, whom Higgins dumped at The Bachelor's Final Rose Ceremony moments hours confessing his love to her.

"You know what's really cool? I haven't really talked about this at all yet, the fact that she wasn't really bitter about what happened with Ben."

Fletcher, a 25-year-old real estate developer from Dallas, TX, therefore apparently used her relationship with Higgins as a learning experience.

"She actually kind of used that as a bar that was set of, 'This is what I'm looking for, I know this exists,'" Harrison noted.

As a result, Harrison said Fletcher knew exactly what she wanted when 26 men volunteered to compete for her heart on The Bachelorette's upcoming twelfth edition.

"She was very particular and very specific about how, 'This guy is going to have to be pretty phenomenal, as good as Ben was, to capture my heart,'" the host said.

The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 23 at 9PM ET/PT on ABC.
