If you think Kaitlyn Bristowe is the new Bachelorette, you may only be half right. Chris Harrison will be making a big announcement on the Bachelor After the Final Rose special tonight, but there’s going to be a bit of a change for the upcoming season.
Is it possible that there will be two Bachelorette stars for the 2015 season? Chris Soules’ season of the Bachelor had an “anything goes” approach, and E! Online reports that producers are going to do a little “shake-up” when casting the next Bachelorette(s). Perhaps the show’s creator, Mike Fleiss, and his team are going to give two ladies a chance to find the man of their dreams.
The possibility of more than one Bachelorette has fans wondering who would join Kaitlyn on the show — because we all know that the spunky dance instructor is going to be ABC’s next leading lady. All the hints have been there, and they haven’t been too subtle.
The first thought would be overly-emotional Britt Nilsson, who was a fan favorite and then dropped in popularity after she screwed things up with Chris Soules. Reality Steve predicted early on in Chris’ season that Britt would get the role, but quickly changed his mind when she was sent home before the hometown dates.
Jade Roper, who shocked Chris Soules when she revealed that she posed for Playboy, has also been on the rumored list, but many fans think that she could be too much of a risk with both her background in nude modeling and her criminal record.
Host Chris Harrison has stated for weeks that he’d like to work with both Britt and Kaitlyn — perhaps that was a hint that fans will be watching the ladies this season instead of just a single Bachelorette.
Two girls would definitely boost the ratings for the show — Andi Dorfman’s season was the lowest rated season in the show’s history, so something needs to change. Chris Harrison told E! that the show has to “be better” if it is to continue — so fans can expect some changes on the Bachelorette, whether it’s one girl or two won’t be known until tonight’s After the Final Rose special.
“Mike Fleiss sort of rallied everybody together, including myself and reminded us that if we want to keep doing this, we’ve got to be better. We have to produce better, we have to host better, and we have to create better… we still follow the general recipe that’s been so good and made the good secret sauce for 13 years, but we have been able to loosen the reins on everything.”
Do you think Kaitlyn Bristowe will be the only Bachelorette this season, or will she be joined by another lady who is looking for love on TV?
