The Bachelorette will resume on June 19 at its normal time — 8 p.m. EST — and will air for two consecutive nights, June 26 and 27, to make up for the lost week.
In a sneak peek at tonight’s heated episode, this season’s villain Lee Garrett will face off against some of the guys in the house including Kenny King. “I did not want to get into all of this tonight, and I already know what people are going to say about me and I’m going to have to be the one to deal with that,” Rachel says between tears.
In a recent blog for People magazine, Rachel opened up about how her journey is progressing so far. “It’s only been a couple weeks of dates, and I’ve already been both swept off my feet and tripped up by some of the drama,” she wrote. “Honestly, though, I’m feeling 100 about this all working out.”
But whatever the 32-year-old has experienced so far is small potatoes compared to what’s happening over at Bachelor in Paradise. As TMZ initially reported, filming on Season 4 of the franchise spin-off was suspended indefinitely following alleged “sexual misconduct” by two of the show’s contestants.
Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson are at the center of the scandal, which reportedly involves unconsentual sex acts in a pool.
While the craziness in Mexico has certainly intrigued fans, it looks like we’ll still see plenty of drama on Rachel’s season. The attorney teased tonight’s episode by writing, “You won’t believe how the disagreements, sleights, and clashes of characters that started brewing in the mansion over the course of the last couple weeks unbeknownst to me boil over into complete meltdowns.”
She added, “These guys don’t just question each other’s intentions. They scream, they insult, they threaten — and I’m not happy about it!”
