The new season of “The Bachelorette” hasn’t even begun yet, and there is already a lot of drama. Fans of the ABC reality-television show will get to watch Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe return to the screen for a second chance at love when Season 11 premieres May 18. But as viewers already know, only one of them will move forward on the journey. Although the first episode is still more than a week away, the network has released some new teasers about what to expect in the highly anticipated 2015 premiere.
ABC first announced Season 11 of “The Bachelorette” would feature two stars after the February finale of “The Bachelor.” The news shocked fans -- and Kaitlyn. During an appearance with host Chris Harrison on the “After the Final Rose” special, Britt opened up about her excitement over the opportunity. In contrast, Kaitlyn made it clear she wasn’t too happy about the double-bachelorette twist.
“Well, it’s not ideal,” Kaitlyn admitted, addressing Britt. “Nothing against you. Just not really what I pictured.”
The episode description for the 2015 premiere of “The Bachelorette” reveals Kaitlyn’s feelings didn’t change when shooting started. While Britt will be “the tower of confidence” during limo arrivals on night one, the synopsis teases Kaitlyn will be nervous.
Most stars of “The Bachelorette” or “The Bachelor” are nervous on night one -- but Kaitlyn will be facing something else. She’ll have to win over as many men as possible because they’ll have to vote to keep either Britt or Kaitlyn in the house.
“Once the votes are counted, one of the lovely ladies will be going home,” the synopsis confirms.
It’s a high-stakes game of love, but Kaitlyn won’t let her nerves prevent her from making some connections with the contestants. While Britt “displays heartfelt sincerity to score points with the men,” Kaitlyn will be channeling her inner comedian to “break the ice” with her fun sense of humor.
Although the big reveal of the premiere will be whether the contestants choose to be with Britt or Kaitlyn, fans won’t be disappointed with the shenanigans in this episode of “The Bachelorette.” To catch the attention of the women, the men will resort to lap dances, cupcake cars, hot-tub cars, helium-filled balloons and, of course, alcohol. The synopsis warns one man will become so “disrespectful” after a couple of drinks that “other bachelors take him on.” Things get so heated host Harrison will be forced to intervene to put an end to the drama.
