Luke Pell Opens Up About 'Bachelorette' JoJo Fletcher

I have to admit, I'm an avid watcher of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," but Nick Viall's season isn't living up to my expectations.

If the show didn't have Corinne to make us laugh until we cried, I would have stopped watching weeks ago.

One of my favorite seasons was when JoJo Fletcher was "The Bachelorette."

She had a bunch of really interesting (and really good-looking) men to choose from, and the season was filled with a whole lot of drama.

DRAMA, CHRIS HARRISON, THAT'S WHAT THE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR!

I'm sure you all remember Luke Pell, the gorgeous War Veteran who captured the hearts of America while competing for JoJo's love.

The man was sent home in one of the most emotional episodes to date, and fans hoped and prayed he would become the next "Bachelor."

Instead, we got Nick Viall. WAY TO LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE, CHRIS HARRISON. I wanted it to be Luke and I'm still not over it.

So what's Luke been up to today? Is he over JoJo? Is his heart still broken? Is he looking for love?

Elite Daily had the chance to chat with the 32-year-old on the iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet to talk about his time on "The Bachelorette" and how his life has changed from the experience.

Luke knows what it feels like to walk off the show with his heart broken, so we asked him if he has any advice for the current contestants when Nick tells them goodbye.

He told us,

The biggest challenge I think in the whole thing is staying true to yourself... don't lax your standards, be who you are all the way through and always look for that right person.

Well, Luke, are there any contestants on Nick Viall's season who you think you could see yourself with? Luke explained,

You know, I don't know. I've met a few of the people from this season so far and there are a lot of great women on there, but... it's hard for me to tell unless I've spent time with people and gotten to know them as a person.

Honestly, if you ask me, I could see him with Raven. They both have that southern charm and I think they'd look great together.

So then, is Luke dating? He shared,

I'm not, I'm single right now and I'm just working a lot… I'm an artist in Nashville so I'm working a lot on my music project there, that really keeps me busy 24/7.

According to Luke, it sounds like his life -- his love life, specifically -- has changed quite a bit since being on "The Bachelorette."

When asked how his perception of love has changed, Luke said,

It's a lot more complicated after you come off the reality show because so much is in the public eye, so many people are watching and judging who you date and why you date them and then you're trying to figure out if the person that you're dating, what their incentive for dating you is, so it becomes a little bit more complicated.

LUKEEEEEEEEEE. He is so sweet and precious, I could cry. I could also kiss him and hold him in my arms, but I won't get carried away now.

JoJo Fletcher was also on the iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet, so the two exes were able to reunite again. It sounds like there aren't hard feelings, though, because Luke said the two are on "great terms." He explained,

She's great, I think they're happy... her and Jordan, I get along with them great.

Luke, I'd give you the final rose, just saying.
