The Bachelorette is back!
Tuesday night’s episode revealed that Kaitlyn Bristowe is the reigning bachelorette for season 11 – a decision that was made with it’s fair share of drama and cringe-inducing introductions. After all, this ABC classic wouldn’t be what it is without some horrendously awkward moments while on the quest for love.
Let us remind you …
Who can forget Ashley Salter (a.k.a. Ashley S.), lover of onions and all their many layers? (Oh, wait … that’s a pomegranate?) The intense contestant on Chris Soules‘ season got a little mixed up between fruit and vegetable while making a poorly constructed metaphor on The Bachelor‘s season 19 premiere. And that was just the beginning.
And then there was Ali Fedotowsky‘s suitor Kasey Kahl, who vied for Ali’s heart in season 6 with his smooth, sweet tunes (and tattoo). Instead of wooing her, he wound up scaring her – along with the better part of Americans watching from home and wincing.
Last but not least, let’s return to Soules’ season with a head-over-heels moment from Jillian Anderson. The body-building news producer endured an awkward moment double whammy – it wasn’t enough for her to mistakenly hear her name called during the rose ceremony. She also nearly fell for Prince Farming. Not fell in love, not fell into his arms … just straight-up took a tumble.
