'The Bachelorette' for 2021 Announced: Two Women Will Get Their Own Seasons!

A huge twist was revealed about the future of The Bachelorette – there will be two seasons this year!

We previously had heard rumors that Katie Thurston would be the next Bachelorette and she indeed is preparing to film the next season, but another woman will lead a second season to air later in the year.

It was announced during the After the Final Rose special that Michelle Young will be leading a season to air this fall. She was the runner-up on Matt James‘ season while Katie was eliminated several weeks ago.

Katie, a 30-year-old bank marketing manager from Washington, was a fan favorite because she’s such a sex-positive person. You might remember that she made her entrance on the show by presenting Matt with a vibrator and then she took it back because she said she probably would need it while in the house.

Michelle is a school teacher and she reportedly didn’t want to leave her class again to film the season of The Bachelorette in the spring, so her season is going to be filmed over the summer.

Tayshia Adams Denies She's Split from Zac Clark, Reveals Where Her Engagement Ring Went

Tayshia Adams is speaking out in response to speculation that she split from fiance Zac Clark after people noticed she wasn’t wearing her engagement ring.

The 30-year-old reality star got engaged to Zac on the most recent season of The Bachelorette and now she’s preparing to co-host the upcoming season of the reality series.

Tayshia set the record straight about her relationship status while speaking to fans in some Instagram Stories videos on Monday (March 15).

“There’s always weird rumors circulating around that I’m not wearing my ring and that Zac and I are broken up. I don’t know what is happening, but you guys, I was holding my phone with my left hand,” she said in a video.

“But ironically enough, as I was showing my hand maybe a week and a half ago, my ring was literally swinging around my finger, and a lot of you messaged me like, ‘Don’t lose your ring!’ Well, I was in L.A. for a hot minute and was able to finally drop off my ring and get it sized,” Tayshia continued. “So yes, ironically, it was my right hand in my Story, but I also just got my ring sent in to be cleaned and sized, finally — it’s been, like, six months since I’ve had it. So I should have it again maybe tomorrow or Wednesday. Everything is good on this forefront. Thank you so much for being concerned, but we’re good. We’re chillin’.”

Tayshia has said that she and Zac are not in a rush to get married.
