Becca's 'Bachelorette' Contestants Are Here & Bachelor Nation Is In For A Wild Season
Get those brackets ready, folks! The 28 men competing for Becca Kufrin's heart on Season 14 of The Bachelorette have now been revealed. It's finally time to poke fun at the men's shady-sounding careers and determine which of our Bachelorette Fantasy League picks will eventually reach the top of the pack. Bachelorette Becca's contestants are an interesting group of men, so here are the quick, basic facts about each contender.
After being MIA on social media since she was announced as the next Bachelorette in March, Becca made a grand return to Instagram with a post confirming that she was back in the United States after going on a whirlwind journey for love. I thought my life was made when "After the Final Rose" ended with production essentially shooing Arie and Lauren off-stage for the Becca Parade, but my new big excitement is that Becca is back in the "real world." This signifies that a new Bachelorette season is truly ready to kick off, and with less than two weeks to go until the Season 14 premiere, it's about time that we got our first glimpse of Becca's men.
"After the Final Rose" already introduced us to five of the contestants: Blake, Darius, Lincoln, Ryan, and Chase. All of the men put their best foot forward for the early first impression, and somewhere in California, an ABC intern on cleanup duty is still shaking his fists about Blake bringing a horse onstage. Meanwhile, I'm still shook over Wells Adams' long-lost twin, Ryan, entering while playing a banjo.
Soon after the live show, Us Weekly also confirmed that NFL player Clay Harbor was locked in to vie for Becca's heart this season. It turns out that he's not even the only pro football player in this year's batch of men, which definitely speaks to the extremes ABC went to in order to snatch up some true winners for Becca. After all, the Minnesota publicist definitely needs a hefty consolation prize after Bachelor Arie Luyendyk proposed to her only to dump her on camera a few months later.
But fear not, Bachelor Nation, an Arie clone equipped with cardigans is nowhere in sight on Becca's list of men. Let's do the damn thing and check out these guys!
