The new season of “The Bachelorette” premiered Monday night and this time Becca Kufrin is choosing her own destiny!
ABC executive Robert Mills sat down with Variety to talk about Becca’s season of The Bachelorette, Arie and Lauren’s private wedding and Bachelor in Paradise. If you don’t want to miss a minute of “The Bachelorette” or related programming, you’ll definitely want to check out the dish tv packages 2021 to ensure you’ve got access to the relevant channels, as well as plenty of other features and services to keep you occupied when it’s all over.
Mills said that this season was one of the strongest group of male contestants the show has ever had.
“I don’t know why we got such a strong crop, but we really, really did. I think it helped that Becca is into all different types of guys so she had a lot of different personalities. This is one of our stronger crops of guys we’ve ever had – just really interesting, fun guys that are great. There will be a lot of people to root for.”
And a season finale tease.
“Something happens early on where one of the guys says, “I thought I was telling you what you wanted to hear,” and then she goes into post-traumatic stress from Arie because that’s what Arie did. So it was a real roller coaster for her to get there, really literally right up until the final minute. It’s sort of amazing that is was trial by fire, but the couple – Becca and her fiance – are super strong, and I think they’re going to be one of our forever couples.”
About Arie and Lauren’s private wedding.
“Honestly, I didn’t know about this until I watched [Arie and Lauren announce their wedding date] on “The View” myself. My suspicion is they probably want a measure of privacy. I don’t think they’ve been a couple that people have been particular kind to, so they probably didn’t want a bunch of people hate-watching their wedding. For us, we’re just thrilled that they did find love. They went through this really painful experience and are going get married. So we’re happy for them.”
“I’m sure we’ll include the wedding in some way in the show, and we’ll have Arie and Lauren on one of our specials. You can never leave “The Bachelor” family.”
Here’s a little tease for the upcoming season of Bachelor In Paradise.
“From Arie’s season and Becca’s season, anyone that had unresolved issues or things they didn’t carry over will probably be brought to Mexico. I don’t think there was anyone we really wanted that we didn’t get. We’re absolutely thrilled. It’s going to be a fantastic season.”
