The Bachelorette Season 11 premiere is less than two weeks away, but spoilers about Kaitlyn Bristowe’s journey to find love indicate that fans are in for a season full of surprises.
Who are Kaitlyn’s final three guys, where were the overnight dates filmed, and what’s the Fantasy Suite surprise that will have Bachelor Nation fans talking this season? Here’s the latest scoop on the upcoming season of the Bachelorette, set to premiere on May 18 on ABC.
According to Reality Steve, the final rose ceremony took place earlier this week, so filming has wrapped. One of the many rumors about the upcoming season is Celeb Dirty Laundry’s report about the three guys who supposedly made it to the overnight dates. Of course, there’s a twist — this isn’t the first time one of Kaitlyn’s guys has visited the Fantasy Suite.
Celeb Dirty Laundry states that the three guys who make it past hometowns are Ben Higgins, Shawn Booth, and Nick Viall. Nick was the runner-up on Andi Dorfman’s season of the Bachelorette and likely one of the most possessive contestants in the history of the show. Who can forget his appearance on the After the Final Rose special, when he called Andi out for “making love” with him in the Fantasy Suite, despite the fact she wasn’t in love with Nick.
Pictures of Nick on a date in New York (Episode 4) and a group date in San Antonio (Episode 5) surfaced on Twitter back in March, prompting many fans to ask how far he would make it on the show. Reality Steve has confirmed that Nick made it to at least Dublin, Ireland, to film Episode 6, but he has not addressed Celeb Dirty Laundry’s report that Nick is one of Kaitlyn’s final three.

Aside from Nick, contestant Shawn Booth is one guy who should be on your Bachelorette bracket this season. According to WetPaint, the 28-year-old Nashville resident received the first impression rose and was spotted out on a one-on-one date with Kaitlyn in Austin. There are rumors that if Shawn doesn’t get the final rose, fans may see him as the next Bachelor — or, at the very least, he will be cast for Bachelor in Paradise.

The third contestant who is rumored to be in the final three is Ben Higgins. The 25-year-old business analyst, who hails from Denver, Colorado, also got a one-on-one date in Austin. His Twitter account is still active, and there are several mentions of his ex-girlfriend, Shaelin Adams, still in his timeline.
Where the overnight dates were filmed is still unknown, with very few details being leaked out after the cast and crew left Dublin. Spoilers and rumors aside, your best bet for finding out what really happens this season is to watch the show. Tune in to the Bachelorette premiere on May 18 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
