Not everyone loves the idea of a plural Bachelorette season. What do the Click Bait podcast hosts think? Keep reading for Joe Amabile, Natasha Parker, and Tia Booth’s thoughts on Gabby Windey & Rachel Recchia’s joint season.
How Gabby & Rachel’s season is different from Kaitlyn & Britt’s
Season 19 of The Bachelorette is the first season with two women as leads on the same season… or is it?
Long before Tayshia Adams replaced Clare Crawley on Season 16, two other women shared the spotlight.
Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson were both named leads for Season 10 of The Bachelorette.
However, in a shocking twist, the men voted for one of the women to be sent home after the first night. Kaitlyn Bristowe continued the season as the solo lead.
Will that happen for Season 19?
According to ABC, no. Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia will both stick around through the entire season. It’s still unclear if they will have the same suitors or if the men will pick one woman to pursue.
While the network is touting the season as groundbreaking, some Bachelor Nation alums and fans aren’t too happy about it.
Click Bait podcasts weigh in on plural Bachelorette season
Count Kaitlyn Bristowe as one of the alums who aren’t too sure about a joint Bachelorette season. She expressed concern that Gabby & Rachel will be rivals.
Bachelor Nation alum Andi Dorfman also isn’t a fan of the idea. She said having two women as leads gives a “sexist vibe.”
What do the Click Bait podcast hosts think? They spent a good deal of time on a recent episode addressing Dorfman’s comments.
Joe Amabile, Natasha Parker, and Tia Booth weighed in with their thoughts.
All three are looking forward to the dual Bachelorette season and find it intriguing.
Amabile speculated that the producers had a hard time picking between Gabby and Rachel as the lead, so went with both of them.
Natasha chimed in, saying, “I would’ve been heartbroken for Gabby or Rachel if they picked the other one.”
However, she does add that she’d like to see a similar season on The Bachelor with two male leads.
Tia Booth talked about the positives of Gabby and Rachel having each other during the season.
She said it was “kind of dope” that the women will have that support.
See their full conversation in the video below.
All three Click Bait podcast hosts plan to watch Season 19.
