Bachelorette Season 11 Sneak Peek: The Craziest Intro Yet!


That’s one way to woo the ladies! The eleventh season of The Bachelorette premieres on Monday, May 18, and Us Weekly got an exclusive first look at one of the craziest entrances ever.

Rather than joining the group for the usual limousine arrival, a man named Shawn E. decided to drive himself to the Bachelor mansion in one eye-catching car. The 31-year-old Canadian, whose occupation is listed as an “amateur sex coach,” rolled up to Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson in a hot tub convertible.

The tricked-out car did not feature a hot tub in the back, but rather was entirely a jacuzzi. Grinning at the two Bachelorettes as he drove up, Shawn was submerged in water from the waist down, leaving him with a sopping suit. 

When they first caught sight of the crazy vehicle, the competing Bachelorettes first thought it was simply a car with hydraulics. As Shawn drove closer, however, they learned that the water was far less concentrated.

Bristowe and Nilsson found the entrance hilarious but one of Shawn’s fellow competitors was looking on and was less than impressed. “That car sucks!” junkyard specialist Ryan M. shouted. “Dude… You suck, dude.”

Shawn and his new rival Ryan will be competing with 23 other men to win the final rose. Bristowe, 29, and Nilsson, 27, got the dubious honor of becoming the first women to star in a season with two Bachelorettes. While ABC has given few details on just how the process will go down, one of the women will be eliminated by the men, leaving the group to vie for just one heart.

Both ladies made their reality TV debut with this past January’s 19th season of The Bachelor. They competed to romance Iowan farmer Chris Soules, but Nilsson took sixth place, while Bristowe came in third. The pair fell to runner-up Becca Tilley and eventual winner Whitney Bischoff, who recently relocated to Iowa to be with her future husband.
