It’s time to stop and smell the rose parade, and watch The Bachelorette 2021 online, even without cable. Michelle Young takes her turn as the lead of the ABC reality dating show. She’s got a cast of 30 suitors who intend to impress her with their looks, charm and, in some cases, jump shots.
The Bachelorette 2021 start time, channel
The Bachelorette 2021 premieres airs at 8 p.m. ET today (Tuesday, October 19)
It’s on ABC.
Michelle is the second Bachelorette this year, following Katie Thurston. Both were contestants on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor. At the end of her season, Katie got engaged to Blake Moynes. Now, it’s Michelle’s chance to find love. And according to Bachelorette spoilers guru, Reality Steve, she succeeded!
The Bachelorette 2021 is hosted once again by Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe, both former Bachelorette leads. And unlike Matt and Katie’s installments, this one wasn’t filmed in a bubble. Bachelor Nation fans will see Michelle and her men traveling to her hometown of Minnesota.
