After Bachelor Nation met Gabby Windey’s Grandpa Joe on the last season of The Bachelor, he instantly became a fan-favorite. He returned to offer Gabby some very important advice during her 1-on-1 date with Erich Schwer on The Bachelorette, and Twitter was here for it.

John is Gabby’s grandpa, but all of Bachelor Nation has adopted him as their own.

Even the other Bachelorette, Rachel Recchia, chimed in to share her love for Grandpa John.

He was very down to be the third wheel as Gabby drove the trio around during the date.

However, fans were worried he was a little too cold in that open-air Jeep.

After their car ride, they experienced a sound bath together and Grandpa John took the opportunity to take a nap.

Some fans wished Grandpa John got to enjoy his nap even more.

After that, they went to a bowling alley, where Gabby tried setting John up on his own date.

In fact, fans wanted to see more of Grandpa John’s date.

Fans are hoping Grandpa John’s appearance in this episode means he’ll be returning to Bachelor Nation in an even bigger way going forward.

Jesse Palmer might want to watch out, because a lot of fans want Grandpa John to steal his job.

Season 19 of The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
