Will You Accept this Newsletter?

What’s up, Bachelor Nation? We’ve missed you! It has been a wild couple of months, and with Katie’s season of The Bachelorette quickly approaching, we can’t wait to get back to spending our Monday nights drinking wine and live-tweeting with you. In the meantime, we’ve started rounding up the biggest news coming out in the world of our favorite franchise.

Antebell…um… what?

While we wouldn’t have predicted it after their painfully awkward reunion on Women Tell All, Matt and Rachael are reportedly back together. After a very public breakup, the couple is enjoying the privacy of their second-go-around (mostly) without cameras and microphones. Both parties have been focusing on self-improvement now that the show is over. Rachael is focusing on her own anti-racism work, while Matt has been delving into sustainable agriculture and using NFTs and cryptocurrency to help teach financial literacy to kids.

We’re Going Bach to Bach

Covid made an attempt to ruin everything good about 2020, and The Bachelor franchise was no exception. We got a delayed season of The Bachelorette, skipped Bachelor in Paradise entirely, and will never find out who Blake would have hooked up with at Stagecoach. Thankfully, ABC is committed to making it up to us this year by giving us an EXTRA season of The Bachelorette in the fall.

First up, Katie’s season of The Bachelorette premieres on June 7th, followed closely by Bachelor in Paradise, then another Bachelorette season starring Michelle in the fall… think we can get them to throw in a Bachelor Summer Games? Regardless, for future Monday nights in 2021, consider yourself booked. 

What better way to celebrate all of this Bachelor excitement than by making a league early this year? Bach Bracket signups are now open – create a league!

Can We Steal You for a Sec?

  • First-night limo photos and the official tagline for Katie’s season of The Bachelorette have been announced. Let’s just say, it’s definitely a vibe.
  • Bekah Martinez (from Arie’s season of The Bachelor) finally revealed how she ended up on a missing person’s list just 45 days before appearing on the show. TLDR; a weed farm, meth heads, and… a really bad friend.
  • Reality Steve is in hot water after being accused of making an ‘unwanted and unprompted sexual advance’ on previous Bachelor star, Demi Burnett.
  • Bach Bracket leagues are now open for the upcoming season. Create a league, or join our Official League to compete against all of Bachelor Nation.

Do it for the Gram

We follow everyone, so you don’t have to.

Not sure if a Bach Nation announcement has ever blown up the group text faster. J & K forever. We’re privileged to witness their love. (H/T @kaitlynbristowe)

Baby Alessi had an absolutely magical birthday party last weekend, celebrating her final birthday as an only child before Lauren & Arie’s twins are born. (H/T @laurenluyendyk)

Just when you thought they couldn’t get any better, BIP’s cutest couple (this is not up for debate) is expecting. After a difficult IVF journey, the two shared their special news on Mother’s Day. (H/T @astridloch)
