Ready to find love? “The Bachelorette” star Kaitlyn Bristowe is! After winning the majority of votes over fellow contestant Britt Nilsson, Kaitlyn made her first cuts during the season premiere’s rose ceremony. It was hard for the 29-year-old dance instructor to say goodbye to a handful of men she just met -- but now she’s ready to begin dating the remaining bachelors.
The episode 2 synopsis teases that the men are just as “eager” to start dating the brunette beauty. Unfortunately, the contestants will have to get used to sharing her first, as this week will feature two group dates.
One group date will pit the men against each other with the help of boxer Laila Ali, the daughter of famed heavyweight boxing legend Muhammad Ali. Laila will show the men how to throw some punches, and one strong stud will come out on top. Meanwhile, a second group date will use laughter as a way to win Kaitlyn’s heart. Comic Amy Schumer of Comedy Central’s “Insider Amy Schumer” and the forthcoming “Trainwreck” movie will attempt to help the contestants make the Bachelorette laugh.
A couple of men will get left behind during episode 2, but Clint is the lucky bachelor who lands the first one-on-one date of Season 11. The 27-year-old architectural engineer from Chicago will find himself embarking on an underwater photo shoot with Kaitlyn. Things get wet and wild as the pair ends their date in a “hot romantic embrace.”
Of course, the latest installment of “The Bachelorette” won’t be all fun and romance. There will also be some tension between the contestants, thanks to the division of Team Britt and Team Kaitlyn during the premiere. While Brady exited and chose to take a chance on Britt, other men who entered the house for her decided to stay and try things out with Kaitlyn. The contestants on Team Kaitlyn made it clear during the premiere that they were not happy that those on Team Britt were receiving a second chance. The synopsis teases that the guys begin by “playing nice,” but that one “devious bachelor” threatens to stir up trouble by “refusing to play by the rules.”
Finally, “Bachelorette” viewers can look forward to finding out what happened when Brady left after the two-night premiere. The previous episode concluded with him at Britt’s door while she sat inside upset about getting eliminated. This week, episode 2 will reveal what happened when the pair reunited -- and whether Britt is interested in pursuing a relationship with the Nashville singer.
The following contestants are still in the running for Kaitlyn’s heart: Ben H., Ben Z., Chris (the dentist), Clint, Corey, Cory S., Daniel, Ian, Jared, JJ, Joe, Jonathan, Joshua, Justin, Kupah, Ryan B., Shawn B., Tanner and Tony.
Episode 2 of “The Bachelorette” Season 11 will be shown on ABC Monday, May 25, at 9 p.m. EDT.
