It’s interesting because while you would think Bachelor Nation would be more concerned with whether Chris will choose Becca or Whitney tonight, the real speculation has been about who Chris Harrison will announce as the new Bachelorette.
While Britt has been the favorite for the majority of the season, it appears support for Kaitlyn has been picking up steam.
Fans were sent into a tizzy over the weekend when Kaitlyn instagrammed a photo of herself filming an unknown project over the weekend (leading to speculation that it was her opening).
While this seemed conclusive, perennial Bachelorette guru Reality Steve learned that Britt was seen the next day and was seen filming with the same crew.
As a result, speculation says that it is possible that producers have decided to make both Britt & Kaitlyn the new Bachelorettes in a similar twist to what they did on The Bachelor‘s sixth season with Byron and Jay. As Steve recalls, 25 girls met both Bachelors and then offered a yellow rose (for Jay) and a blue rose (for Byron) as a symbol for who they wanted as The Bachelor. Byron received 13 roses while Jay only received 7 and Byron was announced as the winner.
It’s unclear if this is the route Mike Fleiss and company will go with this time around, but it makes things quite interesting heading into tonight’s finale.
