Bachelorette Mondays return on May 18, and both Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson will be introduced to 25 guys as they step out of limos, cupcake cars, and hot tub convertibles. The two-night season premiere of the Bachelorette begins on May 18 at 9 p.m. ET — here’s a look at the men cast for the reality show that will hopefully live up to its “50 Shades of Cray” promo.
Can’t wait to find out? Reality Steve has already spoiled the outcome of the vote — the majority of the guys voted to keep Kaitlyn on as the new Bachelorette. However, Britt doesn’t leave the show immediately, and is rumored to be dating one of the guys who ditch Kaitlyn early on.
Here is a list of 23 of the 25 men fans will see on the season premiere, per Reality Steve. This list will be updated when ABC releases the official cast bios at some point this week. If you are keeping a Bachelorette bracket this season, the first eight guys on this list may be the ones to watch — but don’t count on them all being there for the right reasons.
