Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe Admits to Having Sex With Contestant, Plus Nick Viall Returns — Watch the Wild Season 11 Supertease!.

Oh snap!’s season of The Bachelorette is officially the wildest yet. The regular premise of Bachelorette is bizarro, anyway: A bunch of dudes are sent to a mansion to try to convince a rejected contestant to become their wife.

“I feel like I’m going to throw up,” Kaitlyn Bristowe blurted out once the charismatic Canadian cutie found out she’d been named the season 11 Bachelorette during the roller-coaster two-night premiere. Monday night saw a Bachelorette bloodbath when Chris Soules-castoffs, Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe faced off for the coveted role of leading lady, as a new batch of 25 eligible bachelors arrived at the mansion looking for their shot at love. In the almost five minute-long clip, one contestant gets into a heated argument with another and threatens to “f—king kill him” while another potential suitor breaks down after season 10 Bachelorette contestant Viall makes a comeback. “Nick was such an a—hole to Andi. After 10 seasons, Bachelorette producers made the controversial decision to mix up their romantic recipe and chose to pin the women against each other to determine season 11’s alpha female.

Some Bachelor fans deemed the change innovative, some said it was uncalled for and others named it downright patriarchal, as the ultimate power was left to the 25 men, who were forced to pick between the two beauties on the first night. “Britt is known for her first impressions. Rose ceremonies, open bars, prepaid trips to exotic resorts and nights in a fantasy suite don’t tend to prepare couples for actual marriage– hence, the high number of and breakups– but the show should still be fun to watch, right? The Bachelorette Is: When the show starts, Chris Harrison does not beat around the bush, he makes a beeline for Britt and immediately informs her in the most circumspect way possible that she is not the Bachelorette.

As a viewer, you get to playfully judge the eligible men, make snide comments about their inane conversations and laugh at how drunk they get at the endless open bars. This isn’t how I pictured the start of falling in love happening,” Kaitlyn said, hesitant about the experience – while Britt, on the other hand, was excited and admittedly naïve about the change in routine. Last night, though, The Bachelorette went too far, allowing misogynistic comments, threats of rape and wholly inappropriate behavior to slide in the name of a game and supposedly “good” television. It was double the bachelorettes and double the awkward when the limos arrived, introducing an exotic dancer, a hot tub convertible and a drunken fool to the Bachelor mansion.

The premiere began with a cavalcade of handsome suitors heading into a cocktail party after staking their claim on either Britt or Kaitlyn. (You can read a full recap here.) These parties are usually where contestants tend to overindulge and last night was no exception. She has no qualms about crying her eyes out in the limo (again) and doubting all her life choices (again) and convincing herself that she will ever find love (again). Of the 25 bachelors, some came for Britt, some came for Kaitlyn, while others were there to get drunk and jump in the pool in their underwear – like Ryan M. who was soon booted from the mansion for his belligerent behaviour and proved the franchise should implement a first-night liquor limit.

Before one of them got to be the girl in charge of handing out flowers to dudes, they had to strategically out-charm the other: Only one girl got to stay after a majority of the male contestants voted for her. Never forget that after years of Bachelor finales, Chris is well trained in the art of vagueness, so it should come as no surprise that he told Kaitlyn of her victory like so: “Unfortunately, Kaitlyn,” he began, she starts nodding and crying accepting defeat, before he finishes, “I had to send Britt home.” To her credit, Kaitlyn asked if Britt was O.K. Following an evening of mingling and wine-sipping at the season’s inaugural cocktail party, rose ballots were cast based on initial attractions and momentary connections, which soon indicated that the men wanted Kaitlyn to stick around as their Bachelorette. So, in the season premiere, cute, likable, funny Kaitlyn secured the Bachelorette title, only after both she and Britt felt jealous of each other throughout the night.

He then drunkenly escorted Britt outside for some one-on-one time, proceeding to hug her and touch her face until one of the other suitors distracted him with the promise of another drink. But following a make-out session with her new front-runner, it became clear that some men had been disappointed in Britt’s exit and she’d have to sift through the heap to find out who was Team Kaitlyn till the end. Then Ryan slapped Kaitlyn’s rear as she walked by and she scowled at him, but presumably because of the show’s set-up, she couldn’t just take the power into her own hands and kick him off. And then the remaining Kaitlyn had to deal with the un-fun, new challenge of facing an unknown number of men who anonymously voted to keep the other girl.

He tells her she’s the Bachelorette, which makes her hyperventilate more, and then he reminds her that she has to stop hyperventilating because she has a Rose Ceremony to oversee, which makes her both hyperventilate and swear. (They could overdub the swearing, but the heavy breathing was there to stay.) Chris then leaves so she can pull herself together and call her mother and try not puke simultaneously. Things did not improve at the end of the episode, when there was a montage of upcoming Bachelorette clips featuring Kaitlyn kissing everyone, making sex sounds and hooking up with former Bachelorette runner-up Nick V. The Big Reveal: Chris Harrison walks into a room full of men (and probably the smell of sweat and musk, after all that time trying to stake their claim to a woman [insert caveman chest thump]). That’s my whole thing.” The other suitor looked horrified and called him out on it, causing Ryan to simply yell, “You suck!” and stumble onward. It was a shocking moment of literal — not implied — rape culture come to life on the small screen, with one drunken loser spewing horrible things on television.

When producers finally had enough of Ryan’s antics, a giant Bachelorette bouncer sent him to speak to host Chris Harrison outside of the house. “I hate to do this, but you’re clearly not here for either one of these girls or for sincere reasons,” Harrison told the disgraced contestant. “I really think it’s best if you go home. To help her on her journey is the First Impression Rose. (Yes, grammarians, that’s a proper noun.) The Menfolk and Their Feelings: Some of the men are thrilled that Kaitlyn is the woman they will be pursuing. Like Tony the healer, who is having a hard time transitioning his energies from Britt to Kaitlyn, even though he originally wanted to vote for Kaitlyn. This season was already shaking things up by removing any sense of female empowerment from the show, by letting the women compete for the men’s votes. Jared makes the brave choice to tell Kaitlyn that he put his rose in the box for Britt, but is totally willing to try putting his rose in her box too.

Rose Ceremony, Part II: With Brady on his way out the door and the ceremony back under way, Clint accepts Kaitlyn’s rose, then there’s a Tanner, a Corey (or maybe a Cory?), an Ian, another Ben, a Justin and someone else maybe?
