If you watched last night’s The Bachelor: After the Final Rose episode, following the last installment of Matt James’ journey as The Bachelor, then you know the host, Emmanuel Acho, offered up what they were calling their ‘twist’ for Bachelor Nation.

Just when you thought ABC’s reality-dating competition might take a step back to re-evaulate things in the wake of racism surrounding the franchise following Chris Harrison’s exit and past images of Rachael Kirkconnell surfacing that ultimately tanked her relationship with Matt James, came the announcement that both this season’s ‘Bachelor’ runner-up, Michelle Young and fan favorite, Katie Thurston who spoke out against bullying in the house of what many deemed the ‘mean girls’ throughout the season, were both named the next ‘Bachelorettes’!

Thurston and Young will star in the upcoming 17th and 18th season respectively of the series.

 

Katie’s journey as “The Bachelorette” is set to premiere summer 2021, and Michelle’s season will air fall 2021.

So, what do you think of back-to-back Bachelorette seasons and the choices of Katie and Michelle? Are you interested in seeing their chance at love play-out?  Should the franchise take a minute after this season’s controversial Bachelor season, or move forward?
