The nineteenth season of The Bachelorette is kicking off this July, but there’s a twist in store…

The hit ABC show are coming back with a bang just six months after the season 18 finale. Last season, viewers saw Nayte Olukoya win the heart of 28-year-old Michelle Young.

However, ABC are switching things up and are gifting us with TWO bachelorettes rather than one. This could mean couple the drama, and double the chaos…

Why are there two Bachelorettes?

Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia will be appearing on the latest season as The Bachelorettes. Now, you may be thinking – why is there any need for two Bachelorettes?

Well, as both Gabby and Rachel made it to the final of The Bachelor, and were known for their bond that they created after their drama with Clayton Echard, it was only right that they go on their quest for love as a pair.

During the finale of The Bachelor, Clayton told Gabby and Rachel that not only was he in love with both of them, but he had also been intimate with both of them. The news left both of the girls in tears, and viewers were infuriated for them.

How will the show work?

Fans of the show are intrigued as to how The Bachelorette will work with two women searching for the one.

In an interview with Gabby and Rachel, Jesse Palmer, the ABC host himself even had no idea how the show is going to work. However, he promised the girls that they will figure it out together.

To see if there will be competition, Jesse asked them what exactly they are looking for from the contestants. Rachel responded to this, saying she is looking for someone who is “supportive and someone that loves me, lets start there”. Gabby went on to tell Jesse that she wants someone who is “emotionally intelligent and mature, who can challenge me.”

Viewers will have to wait until the 11th of July to find out if the pair will work well together, or if they fall for the same guy once again…
