Ready to start a new journey to love? Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe are! Although Chris Soules rejected the two ladies during “The Bachelor,” they’re returning for a second chance at a fairy tale ending in Season 11 of “The Bachelorette.”
As fans of the ABC reality series know, the 2015 twist is that the 25 men must vote for the woman – Britt or Kaitlyn – they think would make a better wife. Only one woman will remain on “The Bachelorette” after the premiere. However, that doesn’t mean that the contestants in the house hold all the power. Once Britt or Kaitlyn is named the official star of the season, she’ll start the rose ceremony elimination process to find her future husband.
Viewers will have to wait until Tuesday, the second night of the two-night premiere, to find out which lucky lady will officially land the title of “The Bachelorette,” but International Business Times got the scoop on their biggest turn-offs and pet peeves when it comes to dating.
“I would say if somebody – number one, doesn’t have a compassionate heart to the people around them,” Britt, 28, dished. "You know, I kind of watch how people treat the people in their space. Like, how do they act with their mom, how do they act to the waiter. Are they kind? That is a deal breaker if somebody doesn’t pay attention to the people in their life and strive to be kind. That’s huge ... or if they’ve never read a book.”
For Kaitlyn, the biggest deal breaker would be if her potential partner didn’t want kids. “I want kids very soon,” the 29-year-old confessed.
Another issue for her? Tipping!
“I worked in the service industry for so long in restaurants and stuff, and it really bugs me if guys don’t know how to tip,” she added. “And manners go a long way and tipping goes a long way.”
Weeding out the men based on what they’re looking for in a future husband isn’t the only thing that Britt or Kaitlyn will have to worry about on “The Bachelorette.” Since the men will be voting first, the potential star could be facing suitors who didn’t want her there. The synopsis for the premiere already teases that one man will confess to voting for the other woman – but is that knowledge a deal breaker for Britt or Kaitlyn?
“I think that Kaitlyn and I are fairly similar and I understand why a guy would like Kaitlyn,” Britt admitted. “So, that doesn’t turn me off at all.”
Kaitlyn had similar feelings. “They’re put in a tough position where they barely know these two women and you have a short amount of time to even just sit down and chat before somebody else comes to steal us away,” she explained. “So, you know, I think if somebody voted for Britt and they continued to stay, if it was me them, I don’t know. I just think I would have a better chance to get to know that person and I wouldn’t hold it against him. Britt’s lovely.”
Fans of “The Bachelorette” can watch the journey to love unfold when the 2015 season premieres on ABC on Monday, May 18, at 9 p.m. EDT and Tuesday, May 19, at 8 p.m. EDT.
