Charity Lawson's runner-up Joey Graziadei was recently confirmed as the next Bachelor.
Charity says the journey will be "a lot on him in all aspects: emotionally, physically, mentally."
But she says she thinks he has "the necessary tools" to find love, and will be watching his season.
Charity Lawson faced a difficult decision on the season 20 finale of "The Bachelorette" when she had to choose between Joey Graziadei and Dotun Olubeko — both of whom she was in love with. Ultimately, she accepted a proposal from Dotun, leading to a heartbreaking goodbye with Joey.
Even though Joey didn't find love with Charity on "The Bachelorette," he'll soon have another chance at romance when he steps into his new role as Bachelor for the upcoming season.
Charity and Dotun, for their part, tell Insider that they're excited for Joey's stint on "The Bachelor," though they acknowledged they both know the 27-year-old in different ways.
"He's just such an intentional dude, and I keep saying that even when he looks in my eyes, I almost fall in love with him," Dotun says. "So I know that he's going to be able to make strong connections, and I just hope that he's able to put himself in a position where he knows that he wants the type of once in a lifetime love and not just any love, because that's what he deserves."
"That's going to take some navigating to get through," Dotun continues, "but he's smart and emotionally mature and emotionally intelligent."
Charity agrees. "This whole journey is like no other. It comes with so much, so it's going to be a lot on him in all aspects: emotionally, physically, mentally."
She emphasizes that Joey "has the necessary tools to navigate this."
"It's just going to require him truly knowing when to tap in and resort to that and figuring things out for himself," she says. "If he doesn't lose sight of that and look too far down the road, I think he will be well on his way to truly finding his person."
The couple confirmed to Insider that they'll be watching Joey's season "for sure."
"We will be watching him and supporting him along the way," Charity says.
Charity and Dotun also spoke about their upcoming marriage plans, which may involve two wedding ceremonies.
However, Charity made it clear that the couple is still enjoying their engagement.
"We're just obviously enjoying this season in time in our lives," she says.
