Adios, Chris Soules! “The Bachelorette” is returning to ABC on Monday and introducing 25 new single and sexy men. This season the contestants will be involved in a tricky twist as they’re entering the mansion to meet two women – Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe. Both women, who previously appeared on Season 19 of “The Bachelor” with Chris Soules, were named the stars of the 2015 season of “The Bachelorette” …. But the twist is that only one will remain after the two-night premiere.

That’s right, for the first time in the history of the show it will be up to the men to choose which woman they can see as their future wife. While night one usually involves the bachelorette handing out roses, the men will first have to cast their vote of who they’d prefer to go on the journey to love with.

The 2015 season of “The Bachelorette” kicks off on Monday, May 18 at 9 p.m. EDT on ABC. Meet the cast below:
