Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia's joint season of The Bachelorette kicks off in just a few weeks (July 11th, to be exact) and it's going to look a little different. Mainly because there are two Bachelorettes.
Aside from promising Gabby and Rachel won't be pitted against each other, ABC hasn't shared exactly how the season will play out logistically - but Nick Viall says the show's production has been a challenge.
On his podcast, The Viall Files (via Us Weekly), Nick explained that The Bachelorette will function like Bachelor in Paradise (meaning if a contestant is rejected by one Bachelorette, they have the option of dating the other).
“I heard it will be very different. And it will feel like paradise," he said. "It's on a cruise ship — part of it. I asked people because it sounds like the producers think it's going to be really interesting, but very different."
Nick confirmed Gabby and Rachel won't be competing for men, but said, "If it doesn't work out, let's say Gabby felt it with 'Frank.'" "Frank" could be like "Rachel, sup?" There is kind of like options, right? And the thing about Paradise is that people have options.”
He also revealed that the producers "said it was hell to film because they decided to have two bachelorettes, like last second. So the planning was for a bachelorette. They had to stuff everything in. And then I said, "What if it goes really well, eh, that's a hit?" ...People I talk to hope they never do it again. Just because of the logistics. I think a cruise ship was probably the challenge.”
Honestly even more excited for the season knowing all that.
