Are two male 'Bachelorette' contestants hooking up?

2015-05-28
We're used to seeing hot men vie for a lady's affections on US reality show The Bachelorette, but a promo for the show's latest episode has set tongues wagging for different reasons... Now in its 11th season, ABC's promo for next week's episode of the dating show sees two of the contestants - Clint and JJ - getting closer to each other than they are to the intended object of their affections, bachelorette Kaitlyn. bachelorette “It’s absolutely insane. I never thought that I’d meet somebody like that,” Clint tells the camera, before confessing: “Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind.” Adding that he is “100 percent,” is in love with fellow contestant JJ, he goes on to say: “Kaitlyn’s not the right girl for me. I love JJ, so I need the rose tonight.” He continues to say that the pair have "gotten very close in the shower" during their stay in the Bachelorette house. ERM, WHAT. The other guys on the show seem to be noticing, too, explaining in the clip that "Clint and JJ are so into each other." The voiceover for the promo insists “this Brokeback Bachelor will blow your mind,” but could it all down to a cleverly edited bromance? We guess we'll find out next week, but until then that won't stop our imagination going into total overdrive. For users in the States, you can check out the promo for yourselves over here. bachelorette 2   More stories: Angela Merkel rules out equal marriage in Germany Just how much of a problem is biphobia?
