THE BACHELORETTE - ABC's hit romantic reality series, 'The Bachelorette,' kicks off its 11th season continuing the surprises of this season's 'Bachelor' with the biggest one of all: there will be two Bachelorettes. One is Kaitlyn, the gorgeous, fun-loving, warm-hearted, but irreverent firecracker who let down her guard only to have her heart crushed. Who will the men prefer? Eventually, only one woman will be left to hand out the final rose. 'The Bachelorette' returns to ABC, premiering MONDAY, MAY 18 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

America fell in love with two very different but dynamic Bachelorettes last season - Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe. It was hard to choose between the beautiful, charming Britt and the gorgeous, fun-loving, wise cracking Kaitlyn. So now, 25 eligible bachelors will choose between these two amazing women. For the first time in franchise history there will be two Bachelorettes. Chris Soules sent both ladies home broken hearted, but now with another chance at love, both women are ready to take a journey they hope will wind up happily ever after, on 'The Bachelorette' two-night premiere event, MONDAY, MAY 18 (9:01-11:00 p.m., ET) and TUESDAY, MAY 19 (8:00-9:00 p.m, ET), on the ABC Television Network.

HIDE CAPTION

Yes, Nick, who finished second during Andi Dorfman's season, made a comeback to try his chances with the newest "Bachelorette."

He and Kaitlyn had talked online not too long before she came on the show, but nothing had ever come from it.

That is, until he tracked her down after one of her group dates and asked if she would consider inviting him to compete for her heart along with the rest of the men.

Kaitlyn ultimately decided to let Nick join the show after they shared a passionate kiss on the pier.

But the guys who have been working for weeks to earn Kaitlyn's affection were not happy about the new addition.

"Whether it's the good choice, bad choice, and it just creates, like, a rain cloud over the whole night," said Tanner.

"If Nick V. Does show up, I don't think any of the guys are gonna take a liking to him coming in," said Justin.

A writer for Bustle agreed with them there, but she blames the producers, not Kaitlyn. "Whether Nick approached TheBach folks or whether they approached him, it was totally unfair of them to spring this on the rest of the guys like that."

Only time will tell if Nick will truly have an advantage over Kaitlyn's other suitors. Tune in next week to see how Nick-gate all plays out.
