Last night confirmed what essentially everyone already knew, Kaitlyn is officially the newest Bachelorette. After leaving us with a cliffhanger on Monday night Chris Harrison got right down to delivering the news to the women, and by right to I mean he drew it out for as long as possible, and threw in some Ryan Seacrest-y teasing, for Kaitlyn before letting her know Britt was sent home. Sidenote: They basically have to have two bachelors next season, right? I mean that’s the only way this doesn’t look completely misogynistic and wrong. I am anxiously awaiting the reveal during the After the FInal Rose special this season. But anyways, let’s keep this ball rolling because we’ve still got to break the news to the guys, and much to Kaitlyn’s surprise, there’s still a rose ceremony to contend with.
With Kaitlyn being announced as the bachelorette, the pressure moves on to the guys to impress her. This task proves to be particularly daunting for the #TeamBritt guys who are now faced with the fact that their choice is no longer in the house. But just because their dream wife just left in a limo doesn’t mean these guys shouldn’t stick around to get their 15 minutes of fame. The only guys, who admitted to Kaitlyn they were hoping for Britt were Jared, who then proceeded to make his case for staying, and Brady who decided half way through the rose ceremony that he needed to bow out and go chase Britt down at her hotel. Tony is especially upset, as he puts it there is “only one drinking fountain” that all the guys are now lined up at, and he might need to just go back home and “dig his own well.” (It’s becoming more and more clear all the time why Tony is still on the market).
