ABC has picked not one, but two stars for its next season of “The Bachelorette.”
During Tuesday’s conclusion to the two-part finale for Clayton Echard’s season of "The Bachelor", ABC revealed that both Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia will share rose responsibilities as co-stars on "The Bachelorette" season 19, set to premiere Monday, July 31. Jesse Palmer, who debuted as franchise host for Echard’s season, will return to host.
This marks the first time that two women will be co-leads on "The Bachelorette". In 2015, contestants were given the choice between Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson as the lead, with Kaitlyn being chosen.
The announcement followed Susie Evans deciding she’s open to continuing her relationship with Clatyon after walking away the previous week once she learned the former football player had been intimate with both Windey and Recchia. After convincing Windey and Recchia to stay in Iceland and give him another chance and then introducing them to his parents, Echard parted ways with them both.
