The Bachelorette Spoilers: Jillian Harris' Journey Begins

by at . Comments

Fresh off a stint on The Bachelor in which she finished third behind Molly Malaney and Melissa Rycroft but won the hearts of millions of viewers in America and Canada, Jillian Harris is set to take the helm as the star of The Bachelorette.

According to ABC's press release, the first man out of the limousine in the May 18 premiere blows Jillian away with his good looks and quiet charm.

Meanwhile, one man literally sweeps her off her feet and yet another becomes quite tongue-tied in her presence. The opening night cocktail party kicks into high gear as Jillian starts to look for the first impression rose recipient.

A tall, handsome guy attempts to woo her with Latin style, while a country crooner charms Jillian Harris with a song and two compete in a dance-off.

In a stunning, first-ever twist; five strikingly handsome late arrivals crash the party late! Jillian Harris thus becomes the first person in the history of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to have 30 suitors - not just 25 - to select from!

The original 25 quietly seethe as the new guests get their time with The Bachelorette. One reveals that he is secretly obsessed with Jillian's feet, while another wealthy businessman impresses her with his laid-back confidence.

By the end of the first night, Jillian is confident that her future husband is among this group of men somewhere, but she must eliminate 10 of the 30 bachelors, leaving 20 suitors to compete for her affections and, in the end, her heart.

Some additional Bachelorette spoilers from the upcoming season:

  • During one of the episodes, the bachelors vote for the man they'd like to send home - much to one stunned and unhappy bachelor's dismay.
  • Jillian Harris' hunt for Mr. Right will take place during intimate dates in California, Hawaii, Spain and, of course, Canada.
  • Jillian takes one lucky man on her ultimate dream date: a private concert by Grammy Award-winner and CMA Vocalist of the Year Martina McBride.
  • The guys will play pickup basketball against the Harlem Globetrotters.
  • A select few lucky fellas get to see her hometown of Vancouver.
  • A single dad from Dallas named is Tanner will be in the mix.

With a face like that, she's lucky to even get on tv! She is about as average as you can get. No wonder she has to sleep with every guy she meets.

who cares if there is no men from Canada. They probably tried to pick men that had similar interest to Jillian which is more important than where they came from.

Where are all the Canadian men? I wonder if Jillian did not want any Canadian men, or if she did not have a say in it. Did no Canadian's apply to be on the show? I am disappointed not to see any!! Canadian gal no Canadian men weird....
