The official ABC synopsis of tonight’s episode reads, “Twenty-one men – still reeling from the dramatic first rose ceremony – look to get their love story with Becca off to a good start as they move into the mansion. Fan-favorite Bachelorette couple Rachel and Bryan put eight of the bachelors through their paces in an obstacle course meant to test their abilities as a groom. Blake gets the first one-on-one date of the season planned by Chris Harrison with an assist from celebrity rapper Lil Jon. Ten lucky men arrive at a gym where they are challenged to show off their athletic skills while playing in a dodgeball tournament in front of a live audience. Iconic comedian Fred Willard joins Chris for the colorful commentary. Some shocking news will be shared during the after-party which rocks Becca’s world, and she must remain focused on her ultimate goal of finding a soul mate.”
Bachelorette star Becca Kufrin was first revealed as the new star of The Bachelorette in March 2018, on the After the Final Rose Special for the finale of The Bachelor. There, she had to watch the break up as a viewer and then confront Luyendyk on stage live. Kufrin, towards the end of the show, was then announced as The Bachelorette and she had the opportunity to meet several of her suitors. Now, she takes on a group of men vying for her love, attention and, for some, their 15 minutes of fame.
This season looks to be a dramatic one (no surprise there) and recently, Kufrin dished to E! News that, “I mean, you’ll get everything this season. You’ll get the drama, you get the tears, you get the happiness, you get the laughter.” Fortunately for Kufrin, according to what she revealed on Good Morning America, she is happily engaged, so there is light at the end of the man tunnel. Kufrin revealed, “It’s a crazy thing, living with multiple men, trying to date one person, and so it’s hard. I wanted somebody to still enjoy the entire thing and really get to know me and somebody who’s not judgmental because I don’t like when people tear somebody else down. I just wanted somebody open and kind and fun.”
Tune in to The Bachelorette on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT and 7 p.m. CT.
