Amy and Haley are back to preview the men competing this season on The Bachelorette and they continue the tradition of doing a draft— this time with a new special guest, Mary Kwiatkowski (@frailmary), one of the Big Brother Daily Live Feed Updaters on Reality TV RHAP-ups and co-host of Kowskicast, a Riverdale podcast with Kirsten MacInnis.
The Bachelorette this season is Hannah Brown, a 24-year-old interior decorator and former Miss Alabama from Tuscaloosa, AL who made an impression with Colton Underwood but was cut before hometown dates.
Haley, Amy and Mary first talk about some news in Bachelor Nation, including the early cast release of The Bachelorette, Carly and Evan’s baby news, and highlights from the Bachelorette Reunion Special.
Mary, Amy and Haley then jump into their Draft selections, based primarily the men’s photos and bios on ABC.com. Follow George (@GeorgeCTV) for all the point tallies and details on the draft scoring. Two additions to the draft this season are Night 1 “Roll tide” points and no repeat first names (or variations) allowed on team drafts. Mary goes first, followed by Haley, and then Amy. Amy makes the 3rd and 4th picks, and the draft proceeds as a snake draft.
