‘The Bachelorette’ Season 11 Episode 2 Recap: Kaitlyn Bristowe Wins — And Gives Roses To A Few Losers

It’s 2015. By now, reality TV is a young adult, but it hasn’t grown out of “The Bachelor” franchise. Despite its bizarre dating rituals, low success rate, and questionable racial and gender politics, the stable of shows is, if anything, more popular than ever. Do people love “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” or do they love to hate it? It’s unclear. But here at Here To Make Friends, we both love and love to hate them — and we love to snarkily dissect each episode in vivid detail.

In this week’s second Here To Make Friends podcast (it is a two-part premiere … thanks, ABC), hosts Claire Fallon, HuffPost culture writer, and Emma Gray, senior editor of HuffPost Women, recap the May 19 episode of “The Bachelorette,” Season 11. We’ll break down the conclusion of the two-Bachelorette thing, Kaitlyn’s taste in men and the slut-shamey, sex talk season highlights. (Also… the return of Nick Viall?!)

Kaitlyn Bristowe Chosen As ‘The Bachelorette’ On Second Night Of Season 11 Premiere

After a two-hour Monday night premiere packed with tears, self-doubt and some less-than-impressive bachelors, we finally know who will star in the 11th season of “The Bachelorette.’ Drumroll please … Kaitlyn Bristowe.

With the Britt Nilsson sent home after just one night, “The Bachelorette” now returns to its regularly scheduled programming. Kaitlyn now has 25 suitors (some of whom had their hearts set on Britt!) to choose between.

With the departure of Britt, it may be back to business as usual for “The Bachelorette,” but the show has already ginned up enough controversy for a whole season with its two-Bachelorette gambit. Host Chris Harrison sat down with HuffPost Live and defended the approach, saying, “I love that some people are upset about it, because we’ve hit a chord with the people who are upset. It’s probably an issue you have with yourself or with other women.” Not everyone agreed, especially after an agonizing premiere that featured Britt and Kaitlyn seemingly torn up with insecurity and lashing out at each other.

But with Kaitlyn now in the driver’s seat, here’s hoping the rest of the season is a little stronger on girl power.
