Don’t fall for the latest promo video, “Bachelorette” viewers. While the ABC reality show might be teasing a “Brokeback Bachelor” moment during Season 11, sources reveal that it’s not what it seems.
“Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind,” Clint, a 27-year-old architectural engineer tells the cameras during the latest teaser.
The promo video for Monday’s episode appears to hint that there is a romantic relationship going on in the house – but not with “Bachelorette” star Kaitlyn Bristowe. Instead, clips from the upcoming installment make it appear as if contestants Clint and JJ only have eyes for each other.
“We’ve grown very close,” Clint says in the video, laughing. “In the shower.”
Other voice clips reveal one contestant admitting that Kaitlyn is not the “right girl” for him. Meanwhile, fellow contestant Joe admits that Clint and JJ have something going on between them.
“Clint and JJ, they’re so into each other,” Joe tells the cameras.
But “Bachelorette” viewers shouldn’t get too excited over this dramatic development – because a source tells TMZ that Clint and JJ are not gay. The insider dished that Clint and JJ, a 32-year-old single dad and former investment banker, did form a “bromance” while filming the dating reality show. However, the source adds that “nothing” ever happened between the two.
What about Clint’s confession about the growing closer in the shower? Chalk it up to a joke. The insider reveals that the contestants see the “Brokeback Bachelor” promo as “funny” and were actually in on the stunt with the producers. They allegedly provided the soundbites featured in the teaser video.
Although the 2015 season of “The Bachelorette” is only 2 episodes deep, both contestants have already had made a big impact on viewers. Clint won the first one-on-one date with Kaitlyn and forged a romantic connection with the 29-year-old Canadian beauty. JJ, on the other hand, seems to have solidified himself as the Season 11 “villain.” Kaitlyn appears to have a soft spot for the contestant, however he rubbed the other guys in the house the wrong way by stealing her away from a handful of men who were left out of week 1 dates.
“The Bachelorette” airs on ABC on Mondays at 8 p.m. EDT.
