Double the Bachelorettes, double the drama! ABC released the first teaser for the upcoming season of The Bachelorette on Monday, April 20, and the 11th installment of the dating show promises to be as wild as ever.
For the first time, there will be two Bachelorettes as season 19 Bachelor cast-offs Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson face off to star in the reality show. As the new promo teases, the two women meet their 25 contestants and then the power goes into the hands of the men as they vote for one Bachelorette.
Taking inspiration from E L James, the first look at The Bachelorette opens with sultry music and the tongue-in-cheek tagline "Fifty Shades of Cray."
Dance instructor Bristowe, 29, is introduced first, smiling at her suitors as they step out of limos. Her moment in the spotlight is fleeting, however, as she is soon joined by waitress Nilsson, 27.
In typical Bachelor Nation fashion, the men pull out all of the stops for their introductions by stripping shirtless and pulling stunts like riding in on an oversized cupcake (yes, really). As the competition heats up, host Chris Harrison enters the shot, addressing his reality stars.
"There are two Bachelorettes," he explains. "That's about to change. There's going to be a vote."
Watch Bristowe's reaction to the vote in the video above and catch the dramatic new season of The Bachelorette on ABC on Monday, May 18.
