Will Britt Nilsson or Kaitlyn Bristowe win the coveted title of The Bachelorette 2015? Fans of ABC’s reality TV dating show The Bachelorette were shocked this month when Chris Harrison leaked some major spoilers during The Bachelor finale and announced that there would be not one but two Bachelorettes on Season 11 – Katlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson. As Bachelorette 2015 spoilers began rolling in and it was revealed that it would be up to the 25 guys to choose whether they wanted to compete for Britt Nilsson or Kaitlyn Bristowe’s heart, the news did not go over well with fans of the show and Bachelor and Bachelorette alums.
According to the March 30th edition of OK! Magazine after Chris Harrison revealed there would be two Bachelorettes, “Some viewers threatened to turn off their TVs and declared the format shakeup sexist and despicable for making the two women compete against each other. The onslaught of criticism couldn’t have been the reaction producers were expecting – or is it?” Even Bachelor alums Sean Lowe and J.P. Rosenbaum took to Twitter to slam the idea of having two Bachelorettes.
OK! Magazine’s inside source reveals that Chris Harrison and the producers knew fans would not be happy about choosing both Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson, and that is exactly why they did it. Forcing the Bachelorettes to compete against each other is just a desperate gimmick to save the franchise after its steady decrease in ratings. The source explained, “This is exactly what they were hoping for. After 10 seasons they needed shock value to shake it up. After a two-seasons ratings slump, this might be the ploy that returns The Bachelorette to its former glory when it premieres May 18th, thanks to hate-watchers and fans alike.”
