‘The Bachelorette’ Season 11 Premiere: Kaitlyn and Britt Butt Heads, One Guy Gets Kicked Off.

Surprisingly, though, the two women in question – Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson – say the discomfort dissolved almost instantly as they greeted their 25 suitors.Long-time Bachelor/Bachelorette host Chris Harrison set up the season-opener of The Bachelorette — which for the first time in history features two leading ladies, at least until the men pick which woman they want to woo — with this: “Will this be awkward and probably a bit painful?

Britt, 28, admits the set-up was “so weird,” but says her experience as one of Chris Soules’ prospects on the last season of The Bachelor took away most of her first-night anxiety. “I didn’t have as many nerves as I felt like I would,” says Britt. “Last season, getting out of the limo, I was so nervous it was paralyzing. The episode was all about the season’s novel twist, with both Kaitlyn and Britt forced to fend for votes in order to be anointed the official rose distributor. But hopefully it will lead to a better chance for true love to blossom.” Kaitlyn Bristowe — the dance instructor from Vancouver who didn’t cry until Chris Soules sent her home last season, in what may be a Bachelor record — was crying to the camera before the first limo of men was unloaded. As the women described their thoughts leading up to the limos’ arrival, it was clear they were on very different pages, as Britt was as confident as ever, while Kaitlyn was not relishing the thought of competing.

Then, instead of letting Britt and Kaitlyn fight over the men in a Thunderdome of Love, which would be uncivilized and one of them might break a nail or something, the men will choose who they will woo. It’s just different.” The most unexpected outcome of the competitive courtship, says Kaitlyn, was that the ladies got past the initial weirdness of greeting the men side-by-side and managed to develop a sort of camaraderie: “I think we actually had a really fun time with it,” she says. “We’d kind of look over at each other and laugh.

So now the story is that the men were “divided as to which girl they thought they could fall in love with” and “it seemed unfair to make that decision for the men.” What seems unfair is for women who’ve already had to compete against each other on The Bachelor to do so again in this circumstance, when they’re supposed to be the ones in control. I’m trying to be positive and I’m excited, but I’m also very uncomfortable.” There’s also something a little wrong with it, given this show is supposed to empower the woman, not the men — and choices are being made so quickly. “It’s all based on initial attraction,” said Kaitlyn. “It’s just going to be very awkward and uncomfortable being compared to somebody and guys are supposed to chose. This later led to Kaitlyn running into the house to tell the already-arrived men that she loved meeting them, which clearly rubbed Britt the wrong way. There was moonshine, balloons and even a puck, which came with the best delivery of the night, courtesy of J.J., a 32-year-old from Denver who grew up playing hockey. “I would love to puck you,” he said, matching the tenor of her opening line to Prince Farming last year — “you can plow my field any time.” The first gift to Britt? Then there’s Josh, a 27-year-old law student who is putting himself through school as an exotic dancer (basically a “real” life version of Danny Castellano from The Mindy Project).

Yep, a cupcake. “I wanted to do something sweet for you guys because you’re the most incredible ladies in the world,” he gushed. • Shawn E., a 31-year-old from Ontario, showed up in a hot tub car. That episode will be just an hour long and presumably will end with a rose ceremony for the men so we can put this nonsense behind us and get on with the season.

There is also a healthy array of blokes with incredibly soporific-sounding jobs, like, investment bankers, former investment bankers, insurance agents, international auto shipperzzzzzz. He quickly got intoxicated and proceeded to pick fights with the guys, including “amateur sex coach” Shawn E. (so many of this season’s professions require quotation marks). After Ryan repeatedly used the phrase “horned up,” threatened one guy with rape and got handsy with Kaitlyn, Chris Harrison — no, Ryan, thankfully it was not “Chris Hansen,” the erstwhile host of To Catch a Predator — pulled him aside and asked him to leave. The only thing we do know is that when it came time for the votes to be counted, neither woman wanted to leave — reinforcing, again, the awkwardness of the whole scenario. Then there’s the guy who shows up at the mansion with a giant cupcake, which either Britt or Kaitlyn can drown their sorrows in if the men choose wrong.

Welder Joshua is from Kuna, Idaho, which sounds about as big as Bachelor Chris Soules’ hometown of Arlington, Iowa, but extra points to Joshua for making a metal rose. The men continued to do their best to prove themselves, which, for Clint, meant showing Kaitlyn a drawing he had done of Harrison riding a Triceratops. (Watch your back, Chris Pratt.) A number of the men admitted to being uncertain about who deserves their rose, with some of them changing their minds.

Before the show begins, Chris Harrison reminds viewers that change isn’t easy and that we will all get through his awkward, painful process together. So pull out your favorite adult beverage, grab your Kleenex, sprinkle your couch with rose petals and get ready to walk hand in hand with either Kaitlyn or Britt on their journey to find love. Louis, Mo., who prattled on about how life is like a bunch of puzzle pieces, kissed his plants goodbye and showed up to meet the women with an unexplained black eye.

Others were already smitten with Kaitlyn, including Shawn B., who gave her a picture drawn by his nephew. (With all the artwork, it was sometimes hard to tell whether this was The Bachelorette or an auction at Christie’s.) As was safe to assume with a two-part premiere, viewers didn’t learn who got the most roses, which will be announced in Tuesday’s follow-up. The limos pull up, and as the 25 men spill out, it’s clear that Britt is winning (or those sneaky producers want it to seem like Britt is winning) as all the men flock to her and Kaitlyn stands there like a fourth-grade nothing in gym class. Personal trainer Ben Z., from San Jose, Calif., lost his mom when he was 14, but it still feels “like it happened yesterday,” which frankly seems a little worrisome. And given that guys like Shawn E. — who spent far too long talking about anal toys — won’t be eliminated until a Bachelorette is firmly in place, let’s hope the winner gets announced as soon as humanly possible.

Sure, they’re wowed by Britt’s looks — she’s a 15 out of 10, said one; on a scale of one to 10 she’s a billion, said another — while Kaitlyn impressed them with her personality and how real she was. Then along came stripper Josh who not only danced for the women but made them run their hands along his heavily tattooed chest. “Britt, have him,” Kaitlyn said.

Britt was getting excited about Shawn B., a personal trainer from Windsor Locks, Conn., when she overheard him tell Kaitlyn, “You are the reason why I’m here.” Then Kaitlyn ran into the mansion to say hi to the guys, which had Britt sniffing about how Kaitlyn wasn’t playing by the rules and it was “disrespectful,” except nobody was holding Britt down and preventing her from doing the same thing. Ian manages to mention that he is a Princeton grad in his intro video, but balances it out with a tragic backstory about getting hit by a car and left for dead. Kansas City “junkyard specialist” Ryan M., who had been getting increasingly drunk and obnoxious inside, came outside and yelled that the car sucked. Just when the tension was starting to decrease, along came Harrison, minus the triceratops, to tell everyone the voting room was open and ratchet it back up.

Didn’t stop him from telling Shawn that everything about him sucked, though. “I hate to do this, but you’re clearly not here for either one of these girls or for a sincere reason,” Harrison said before sending Ryan back to the junkyard. Ryan had already spoiled his ballot by throwing his rose against the wall, so it’s not like we have to worry about some drunk guy casting the deciding vote. Ben H., a software salesman from Denver, David, a real estate agent from Orlando, Kupah, an entrepreneur from Boston, and Corey and the Cory, the Bens, Shawns, and Ryans are all blending into a crowd of spray tans, white teeth and implied cologne. The Cocktail Party: Kaitlyn kicked things off with a knock-knock joke (“Knock knock!” “Who’s there?” “Two Bachelorettes!” “Two Bachelorettes who?” “Two Bachelorettes, that’s the joke!”) while Britt tried not to cry while telling the room that she’s looking for a best friend. The women get slightly panicked looks in their eyes, but try to swallow it down to continue their flirting and run their own personal get-out-the-vote drive fueled by eyelash batting, sweet smiles and sultry looks.
