As Rihanna would say, the wait is over. After that insane premiere on May 18, we found out who the men picked as their next ‘Bachelorette.’
The men were pretty much split between Kaitlyn Bristowe or Britt Nilsson when they stepped out of the limo on night one of The Bachelorette. However, they didn’t have long to make a choice. So which way did they go? Warning: spoilers ahead!
‘The Bachelorette’ Is . . .
Kaitlyn! That’s right, Chris Harrison revealed the votes and actually told Britt that a majority of the men chose Kaitlyn. Harsh! Britt really took it well, and I have to say I’m extremely impressed with how she left with class. And even Kaitlyn said she felt bad being excited. Welp girl, embrace it — and yes, you call your mom just like a normal girl! Love it.
Naturally that excitement didn’t last too long, since she then had to send some people home. However, isn’t that kinda easy? I wanted her to walk in that room and say, “If you wanted Britt, BYE!” But instead she got to know the men.
Alright Let’s Do This
Props to Jared, who came right out and told her he wanted to stay but he did vote for Britt. (I mean that was after he greeted her with, “what up?” so at least he made up for it.)
Chris actually leaned in and got the first kiss of the night, and the whole house saw. Yes, the cupcake. But he did not get the first impression rose. It’s not surprising that it actually went to Shawn B., since she said on night one it was the closes she felt to love at first sight.
So, when it was time for the rose ceremony, Kaitlyn did have to send home some people — so out went Shawn E., Josh, David and Bradley. And yeah, we get it: they’re all mad that Britt-fans stayed. Well, that’s not the way this show works guys. See ya!
Also, special shout to to Brady who interrupted the rose ceremony, pulled Kaitlyn aside to tell her that he really was into Britt and wanted to go find her. Apparently those two minutes they spent together really did it for him! They even show him showing up at her hotel!
And then there were 20.
Healer Tony: “There’s only one drinking fountain and we all must stand in the same line. But I’m almost ready to go home and just dig my own well.”
Kaitlyn to JJ: “You have become more attractive to me than I ever thought you would have.”
Brady about Britt: “The risk of love, whatever the consequence is always worth it.”
(OK, this is a good line and he is a songwriter but Jeesh!)
Are you happy with Kaitlyn as The Bachelorette?
