How The Bachelorette Is Managing Two Leading Women So Far

The beginning of every new season of Bachelor franchise shows always start with the host’s voice announcing, “this is the most dramatic season yet,” and viewers are wondering if this may actually be the case for the currently airing season of the Bachelorette, including not one, but two women who are both the bachelorettes. Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia, both former finalists on Clayton’s season of the Bachelor, are best friends and began this journey extremely enthusiastic to have the other there by their side, not expressing too much worry about eventually falling in love with the same man. Considering the fact that 32 men walked out of the limos on night one, Gabby and Rachel didn’t seem to encounter many issues in the first two episodes, when they collectively gave roses to the men they wanted to keep, rather than handing out individual roses that were specifically from one of them. However, episode three is where problems began to arise on the “two bachelorettes” front.

Why Sitcoms Are The Best Type Of Shows

magine sitting down to watch something on TV, only to realize that you have nothing new to watch— what is the go-to show you choose? Whether you realize it or not, the type of shows that people most consistently return to are sitcoms. Personally, I lean towards shows that are humorous, comforting, and generally help me to escape into someone else’s world for a bit. Programs like “New Girl,” “Ted Lasso,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” all possess that crucial feature that drama shows do not, which is the characteristic I have coined, “rewatchability.”
