It doesn’t take long for the accusations to fly on Jenn Tran’s season of The Bachelorette.

In a PEOPLE exclusive clip from the July 8 premiere of The Bachelorette, Jenn’s suitor Aaron Erb, the twin brother of Bachelor in Paradise star Noah Erb, suggests to her that “all the guys aren’t here for the right reasons.”

That causes Jenn, 26, to ask the group, “Are you here because this is a TV show?”

After getting eliminated in week seven of Joey Graziadei’s Bachelor season, Jenn hopes to find her forever when stepping in as the show’s first Asian American lead. But, the physician assistant student starts to feel even more suspicious after another man, Sam N., declares during a group date, “Jenn, I’m already falling in love with you.”

“How can you love me when you don’t really know me?” Jenn asks.

At the end of the preview, Jenn begins to second guess whether she’ll leave with her soulmate. “Maybe it’s not in the cards for me to find somebody,” she wonders.

After Jesse Palmer announced Jenn as the Bachelorette during 29-year-old Joey’s finale in March, she gushed on social media about how “surreal” it felt to take on the role.

“You have no idea how much this moment means to me,” Jenn wrote. “Growing up I never got to see anyone who looked like me lead their own love story on TV. To be able to inspire a generation of people to be proud of their culture is something I’m so grateful for. This opportunity to find love as the Bachelorette is so much bigger than myself and I am embracing that whole he -


Fans thought Daisy Kent or Maria Georgas might be named Bachelorette, but Jenn said on the latest episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast that "there’s a lot of narratives out there and they’re not necessarily the truth."

"Multiple people are being interviewed, or doing meetings about it all, doing fittings or filming intro packages, and it’s never really you until it’s you,” Jenn explained.

She also insisted production did not only consider her to be the Bachelorette after Daisy, 25, and Maria, 29, turned down the opportunity.

"They asked me and I had the choice and I chose to do it," Jenn told host Alex Cooper. "I said, 'yes.' The thing with the narrative sets out right now is it was disappointing to come back from this incredible journey for myself and then to see all the speculation around it and to almost have these things kind of take away from what my journey was.”

Unlike previous seasons, Jenn’s journey willbegan at Hummingbird Nest Ranchin Santa Susana, Calif.instead of BachelorMansion.

"I feel like a new mansion is the perfect way to break the mold,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I'm gonna bless it with some really good vibes."
