ABC’s long-running reality dating show has returned to fans’ screens for season 27 and it has already brought more drama than ever before – for the contestants and the fans offscreen. After a teaser was released for the next season of the dating show, fans are convinced producers have revealed who the next Bachelorette will be.
This season, fans follow the love quest of the former Bachelorette season 19 contestant Zach Shallcross, who hopes to find his future partner from a pool of 30 women.
Viewers have already been very critical of Shallcross for the way he has handled narrowing down his 30 suitors this season.
But for once the negative comments haven’t been directed at the 26-year-old, instead, it’s the producers who have taken the brunt of fans’ outrage.
Viewers have been left convinced that a recent promo clip contained a huge spoiler about the upcoming season of The Bachelorette.
During Monday’s episode, a promo for the upcoming season of The Bachelorette was previewed, giving fans a hint as to who could star in the next season.
In a Reddit Bachelor-themed chat forum, fans of the show gathered to discuss the one comment, during the teaser, that got fans speculating as an unidentified woman said: “Are you a single dad looking for a partner?”
One fan, @spillingthetea101, commented: “It just gives me the vibe it will be Christina since she left and is a single mom!”
And a second Bachelor fan @ri-ri added: “I can see it being Kaity for sure.”
Another fan @Missy_1211 agreed: “I noticed this on Monday night and was like omg does this mean Christina is the Bachelorette???”
The comment then read: “Now it just occurred to me that they REALLY want another single dad Bachelor (they were pushing hard for Michael A. and Nate for this reason).
“So I’m gonna choose to hope that casting single dads is more about the next BACHELOR than the next Bachelorette lol.”
Other fans come forward with their own theories, with @TheEsthetician2023 saying: “I can’t imagine she would have gotten the edit she did if they had any plans for her to be the lead, but they probably ran that promo her elimination week to get people talking about it.”

However, some fans were quick to disagree with the speculation, as @ellybeez commented: “The lead literally has never been as early as a week 3 elimination and I can’t see her being an exception.”
With another @lumpyspace_stay adding to the thread: “They’re 100% trolling us”
A third fan Reck3000 added: “Yeah Katie, Clayton and Juan Pablo they all made it to episode 6, Hannah mad it to ep 7. There is no way they pick this girl, its way to early.
“By the end of the season, so much will have happened that no one will be clamouring for a week 3 elimination to lead the next season.” (sic)
The Bachelorette speculation isn’t the only reason fans are raving about current Bachelor contestant Kaity Biggar.
The travel nurse is thought to have captured Shallcross’ heart after a successful overnight date during Monday’s episode.
But after fans spotted that Biggar had liked many of Shallcross’s Instagram snaps, they believe the pair have a history prior to featuring on the show.
The Bachelor season 27 continues Mondays on ABC in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
