Britt Nilsson was an early favorite on this season of The Bachelor, earning the first impression rose from Chris Soules – but her journey to love with Soules took an unexpected turn, leading to a dramatic elimination.

Nilsson told PEOPLE that she did regret processing her "private emotions out loud" during a very awkward group date, but now the Hollywood-based waitress may have the chance to redeem herself as she faces off against Kaitlyn Bristowe to become the next Bachelorette.

"I'm super grateful," she said of the opportunity to be a part of the popular franchise again. "Part of me is scared, but the more I think about it, [I realize] it's just going to be what it's going to be. If Kaitlyn's husband is in that group of men, it's going to work out for her, and I'll go home and I'll have to be okay with that. But I'm excited!"

Here are five things to know about the Michigan native.

Former Bachelorettes are not happy about Monday night's Bachelorette shocker.

Host Chris Harrison revealed on the air that the next season of The Bachelorette will involve not one but two ladies – Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe will both be vying for the attention of 25 men competing for them.

"We actually decided not to decide: For the first time in Bachelorette history, we're gonna have two Bachelorettes," Harrison said. "The 25 men on Night 1 are going to have the ultimate say about who they think would make the best wife."

Needless to say, the Internet is not especially thrilled with this decision, which is being viewed as a bit of slap in the face to feminism – and former Bachelorettes are leading the charge.

As America now knows, not one but two women, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson, were named potential Bachelorettes for the next season of the ABC show, squaring off on night one. Shocking news for fans, but the women themselves are taking it in stride.

"I'm trying to be really positive about the situation," Bristowe tells PEOPLE of vying to officially become the next Bachelorette. "It's definitely not ideal, but it's an incredible opportunity. And if the outcome is me meeting the guy I spend the rest of my life with, then it is all worth it."

Nilsson, who weathered a storm of jealousy and drama during her time in the Bachelor house, says she's "grateful" to even be in the running.

"I don't know if they've ever had someone who has been controversial," Nilsson says. "I don't feel like I did anything wrong, but people dislike me. I don't really get that but it's true. So I'm super grateful."

Following a dramatic Tell All special, resident Bachelor Chris Soules came away from the experience relatively unscathed.

Given how sincere and honest he's been throughout the entire Bachelor process, it's no surprise that Chris was "not nervous at all" about the Tell All, he told PEOPLE following taping.

The reigning Bachelor does admit that he's made some mistakes, though, and he revealed what he thought went wrong between him, Kaitlyn, Jade and Britt. He also discussed why he kissed so many girls and why Kaitlyn would make a "great" Bachelorette.
