DING! DING! DING!
According to Chris Harrison, it is about to be on next Monday night.
Between whom? This is the question we’re now left to ponder.
Earlier this week, the reality show host with the absolute most stopped and talked to Entertainment Tonight about the May 28 premiere of The Bachelorette.
It will kick off at 8/7c on ABC, but it sounds as if we ought to say the show will PUNCH off instead.
Just consider how Harrison teased the premiere in his chat with the aforementioned gossip and news outlet:
“Maybe the most ridiculous fight you’ve ever seen in the history of our show, which is saying a lot.
It’s just magnificent to watch.
“It’s going to be one of those [seasons where] you’re watching through your fingers because you’re embarrassed for everybody involved, but you can’t stop watching.”
Now THAT’S what we call a tease.
Is it any wonder Chris Harrison is the very best at what he does?
While recent The Bachelorette spoilers have actually revealed the final four men chosen by Becca Kufrin, ABC announced the FULL list of all 28 suitors on Thursday.
We’ve posted their official portraits above and referenced their official occupations.
There are multiple football players… one sports analyst… a guy who plays the banjo… and some dude who says he’s a social media participant.
We somehow doubt the latter is involved in this fight.
“The arrivals are great because, for the guys, it’s very much out of our comfort zone to make these grand entrances,” Harrison also said of the premiere, adding:
“We make fools of ourselves, that’s what we do. And some of these guys do just that.”
Kufrin, of course, has quite the backstory when it comes to this franchise.
She was proposed to by Arie on the season finale of the latest Bachelor season — and then dumped by Arie on the After the Rose Special.
Becca responded in that moment the same way anyone in her situation would respond (Are you f-cking kidding me, she asked Arie many times), but has since handled the public break-up with maturity and grace.
“He’s a good person, I don’t think he’s a monster and purposely did this to hurt me and make me feel this way,” Kurfin told People Magazine shortly after The Bachelor season concluded, adding at the time:
“I don’t think he thought it through, but I don’t think he did it maliciously to break my heart.”
The guy seems like a giant douchebag in our opinion.
But Arie is the past and one of the 28 men featured above is the future.
“Let’s do the damn thing,” Kufrin excitedly says in the following Bachelorette preview, making it clear that she’s ready to move on.
And if she’s ready to move on, so we are. Let’s do the damn thing indeed!
