It’s less than a week until The Bachelorette 2015 premieres and a lot about the show is being leaked. Spoilers are slowly rolling out as hype for the new season builds to fever pitch. This year, two different ladies are competing for the lead — Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson.
Seeing how women treat one another on The Bachelor competing for a man alone, what on earth is it like when The Bachelorette lead is up for grabs? In this case, the answer is shocking, according to the show’s longtime host, Chris Harrison.
Harrison spoke with Yahoo TV and revealed how things between Kaityln and Britt played out before one of them was selected for the lead. It was actually harder for the contestants than it was for the two women, Harrison says. When each contestant exited the limo, they were faced with two women to impress. One is enough to handle for most guys… let alone two!
What the host had to say about Kaityln and Britt’s relationship during such a high pressure competition is somewhat refreshing.
“My hypothesis was that they would come out swinging. Instead of being antagonistic or adversarial, they were incredibly empowered. It was like they decided, ‘Only one of us will be the Bachelorette, but we can do this together.’ They laughed at the same jokes, talked about how hot the guys were, and judged the arrivals.”
Us Weekly released the names of this year’s Bachelorette contestants. As Harrison said in spoilers of his own for the 2015 season, there are some “rotten apples” as there is in every batch when it comes to this show. It’s hard to get everyone on the show to be part of the cast for the right reasons — and those will be weeded out eventually.
As the Inquisitr just published regarding other spoilers for The Bachelorette 2015, Chris Harrison has named a few favorites he’s hinted about that go the distance. Those contestants are Chris Strandburg, Ian Thomson, Clint Arlis, Ben Zorn, and Joe Bailey. Strandburg was named as being “one of the few” who are competing on The Bachelorette for the right reasons. Some are on the show in the hopes of promoting a career — or their business — while some are on there to genuinely find love.
