Kaitlyn Bristowe is rumored to be the Bachelorette 2015, with filming underway for the 11th season of ABC’s popular reality show. Where will she travel, who are the 25 lucky guys who will try to win her heart, and what happened to Britt Nilsson?
The season premiere of the Bachelorette airs on May 18. Here’s the latest scoop on what to expect on Kaitlyn’s season, along with information on travel, group and one-on-one dates; and a list of some of the men cast for the show.

The first day of filming started last week, with blogger Reality Steve tweeting that Kaitlyn was picked to become this season’s Bachelorette on night one. While Britt didn’t get the lead, Steve confirmed that she does have a role on the show, but no one knows quite what that is. According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, she may be heading to Bachelor in Paradise 2 — perhaps she is relaxing by the pool at the Bachelor mansion while she waits for her ticket to paradise in late April.
Where will Kaitlyn travel to this season? If you were a little bored with the down-home dates on Chris Soules’ season of the Bachelor, get ready for some international travel after the first few episodes.
According to WetPaint, the first date of the season was a group date in L.A. Filmed last week, the date was similar to the boxing date on Ashley Hebert’s season, with Laila Ali judging the competition. One guy apparently got a concussion, and another got a black eye. Sounds like a great start to the season.

Kaitlyn also went on her first one-on-one date in L.A. last week, and will film another group date on Tuesday at a Hollywood comedy club. Reality Steve seems to think that Kaitlyn and her remaining guys will travel overseas after they go to New York City. The group is scheduled to arrive in NYC “roughly around March 24th-28th, give or take a day.”
From there, they will likely head to an international destination — but exactly where is still unknown. In an interview with After Buzz TV, Chris Harrison mentioned that Australia is on the list of must-visit countries, but he didn’t confirm that the crew would be traveling this season.
Who are Kaitlyn’s 25 guys? The official list won’t be revealed by ABC until closer to the May 18 premiere, but Reality Steve does have the scoop on a few of the men who will undoubtedly have ripped abs and a business they’d like to launch with their newfound fame. Names leaked out so far include:
Ryan Beckett: 33, from Wellington, Florida
Daniel Finney: 25, from Nashville, Tennessee
Ryan McDill: 28, Kansas City, Missouri — of note, this is Nikki Ferrell‘s ex-boyfriend. She reportedly dated him before she set out on her journey to find “like” on Juan Pablo’s season of the Bachelor.
Corey Stansell: 30, New York, New York
Shawn Evans: 32, London, Ontario
Tanner Tolbert: 26, Kansas City, Kansas
Brady Toops: 33, Nashville, Tennessee
Names of the other 18 men will undoubtedly leak online over the next few weeks, along with more spoilers about the upcoming season of the Bachelorette.
Are you looking forward to watching Kaitlyn as the Bachelorette this season, or are you disappointed Britt wasn’t picked?
