The Bachelorette: How Did Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson Really Feel About Night One?

Originally posted 05/19/2015 07:00AM

Going into The Bachelorette's premiere Monday night, one thing was certain: The twist of having two potential Bachelorettes face off would be awkward.

Surprisingly, though, the two women in question – Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson – say the discomfort dissolved almost instantly as they greeted their 25 suitors.

"At first, I had a lot of nerves, and once it started happening, it was really fun," Kaitlyn, 29, tells PEOPLE.

With another season of The Bachelorette comes another shot at love – and at least a few guaranteed heartbreaks.

The new season of ABC's reality series presents a shocking (and, according to some, sexist) twist: The first broken heart will belong to a potential Bachelorette herself.

With just a few hours left before Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson have their "awkward" face-off, it's officially time for residents of Bachelor Nation to declare their allegiance.

Below, after two conflicting PEOPLE staffers make a case for each of the would-be Bachelorettes, pick which lady you'd like to see embark on a journey to love.

The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe: Having Two of Us Face Off 'Felt a Little Awkward'

Originally posted 05/14/2015 06:30PM

For the first time ever, two ladies will be awaiting their potential suitors when the limos pull up on Monday night's premiere of The Bachelorette.

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson will both have the chance to meet the 25 eligible men, but only one will be chosen by a vote to continue on with the season. So how did the women deal with the knowledge they would be facing off against each other that first night?

"It just felt a little awkward to think of having another person there," Bristowe, 29, told reporters during a conference call on Wednesday about her feelings going into the initial evening at the mansion. "This competitive-feeling nature, it's not something I usually put myself through to find a guy."

Chris Harrison: The First Episode of The Bachelorette Is Awkward – but Not for the Reason You Think

Originally posted 05/12/2015 09:05AM

With 25 suitors choosing between Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson, there's no doubt that the proceedings will be more than a little awkward – especially given the fact that after the first rose ceremony, one of the ladies will have to pack their bags and head back home.

However, Bachelorette host Chris Harrison says that the premiere won't be awkward for the reasons you think. "It ended up being more awkward for the guys," Harrison, 43, told Yahoo! TV. "They got out of the limos and there were two women they had to get to know and impress. Guys are bad at these introductions anyway.

"They have very little game and it's hard enough to come up with something that isn't too cheesy and that makes a good first impression."

The Bachelor: Women Tell All Recap: Britt Is a Beautiful Crier and Kelsey Explains Why Her Story Is So 'Amazing'

Originally posted 03/02/2015 10:00PM

If The Bachelor: Women Tell All special taught us anything, it's that Chris Harrison makes a terrible referee.

The special opened with some truly epic squabbling between Britt and Carly – though Jillian also jumped in to defend Britt.

Just when it seemed as if the entire episode would be a series of high-pitched noises that only Whitney's stuffed-animal-humping dog could hear, Harrison eventually got a handle on things and we got to hear from Britt, Kaitlyn, Jade, Ashley S. and, of course, Chris Soules himself.

In a special billed as a tell-all, resident Bachelor Chris Soules was perhaps not as candid as we might have liked.

However, the special did give us more Kelsey, who tried to explain herself with the kind of careful, over-enunciated manner we've come to know and fear.

Host Chris Harrison also sat down with Andi Dorfman, still reeling from her split from Josh Murray.

Andi Dorfman: Splitting from Josh Murray Was the 'Biggest Failure of My Life'

Originally posted 02/15/2015 09:00PM

While most of The Bachelor's "Chris Tells All" special was not particularly illuminating (save for further confirmation of the fact that Kelsey is not of this planet), the second half of the episode gave a rare, raw insider's perspective on the inner workings of the show – and into Andi Dorfman's recent heartbreak.

Dorfman, who split from fiancé Josh Murray soon after the premiere of Chris Soules's season of The Bachelor, tearfully admitted to host Chris Harrison that her broken engagement was the "biggest failure of my life."

Harrison, who split from his wife of 18 years back in 2012, was genuinely sympathetic as he listened to Dorfman's confession.
