Happy “Bachelorette” season! It’s that time of the year when one lucky lady -- or in this case two -- get the chance to hunt for their future husbands in front of multiple cameras. Twenty-five presumed single men gather for the opportunity to live in a mansion, day drink and partake in bizarre dates to propose to a woman they met just a few weeks prior.
“Bachelor” rejects Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson return to ABC for Season 11 of “The Bachelorette” for a chance at love. However, this year the network is introducing a twist -- the contestants will have the opportunity to pick with whom they’d like to embark on the romantic journey. Before viewers can get to the rose ceremony, the men on the show will vote for one of the women to continue on as the official “Bachelorette.”
While the show is entertaining enough with the fighting, tears and awkward conversations, there are also fantasy leagues to get your family, friends and co-workers involved in the fun. Check out some options below, and may the best “Bachelorette” contestant win:
BachFantasy.com may sound like a potential NSFW website, but we promise it’s legit. They have rules and an easy to download Excel scoring template for you and your league members to use. The best part is you don’t have to do any of the hard work. You can check back on the website on Tuesday mornings to tally up the score.
“The Bachelor Bracket”
TheBachelorBracket.com also features easy instructions on setting up brackets and your own league. However, to start or join a league, you must register with the website. The way this bracket works is that you predict how far a contestant will go and when he will get eliminated. You get a point for every contestant prediction you get right.
BachelorLeague.com is slightly different in that you choose four contestants to follow. Roses, dates, crying and other shenanigans all gain points. The website requires a $10 fee to participate, but the draft already occurred May 14-15. However, if you want to start a personal league with your own friends they have some good ideas on how to award points throughout episodes.
Last2Left.com offers a free setup for your fantasy league, which is good for those interested in starting office pools. Their public fantasy league is slightly different in that you’re only trying to correctly predict the final two bachelors. Deadlines for the public game start June 8 at 4 p.m. EDT. Private games are also available, but you have to register an account on Last2Left.
