The Bachelorette Season 11 (aka the season it all went to hell in a handbasket) is almost upon us! There was some confusion following ABC’s After the Final Rose on how exactly this was all going to work. Here is what we know:

1. ABC doesn’t even know how it’s all going to work. They were just like we have to make an announcement so let’s just be as vague as possible and hope it all works out. Drink up, America!

No, but really. How it’s going to work is night one the 25 guys will mingle with both ladies and then vote on who they want to remain as the bachelorette. What is still unclear is what happens to the men that voted for the rejected bachelorette. Does the winning bachelorette just turn every date into a search party for the ones that didn’t vote for her? Because now that would make great television.

I think this is a stupid idea and a way for The Bachelor to keep ratings up. That said, you know where to find me Monday night, May 18th 8|9c.

[SPOILER ALERT] I did it, I read Reality Steve. If you don’t want to know who the new bachelorette is do not read further.

No for reals. Skip ahead.

Ok, I warned you. Now normally I don’t condone spoilers, but this time I was gonna blow a fuse if Britt made it to be The Bachelorette, and I really had to prepare myself for what season I was about to enter into, because let’s face it, it’s an empty threat if I said I would boycott the entire season. I’m too far invested in this. But you can save yourselves. Never fear, though, Reality Steve has informed us that Kaitlyn is in fact this season’s bachelorette. Reality Steve also revealed that Britt will play a part in some capacity.

Still, my favorite moment might be on last season’s finale when Chris Harrison looked visibly upset by the audience’s reaction to Britt being a potential candidate for the Bachelorette.

[Spoiler Alert End]

The Men: ABC has revealed the cast of which 25 dudes got roped into signing up for this train wreck season. There is the token dentist, a singer/songwriter trying to make it in this lonely world, and a few bajillion personal trainers. The best profession this season, though, might have to be a sex coach, whose favorite holiday is, shocker, Valentine’s Day. Probably big business around that time. Get to know Shawn E. here. The best part is that he’s not even a sex coach, sex coach. He’s a self-proclaimed amateur sex coach. So you’re not even getting the best of the best here. Screen shot 2015-05-12 at 12.30.18 AM

US Weekly has a great easy line up to remember this fine smattering of men. And of course, you can oggle the cast list on ABC.com. My money’s on the law student/exotic dancer. Or maybe the healer. Decisions, decisions.

Premiere Date: Get the wine glasses prepped and those premiere parties popping, Season 11 of The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 18th, 8pm|9pm c. 

Note to self: Find the Bachelors’ audition tapes…or a personal trainer.

Who do you want to see as the next bachelorette?
