The Bachelorette in danger of being overshadowed by the US version of the show… which premieres in just one week with a FAR more dramatic twist than Elly and Becky Miles’ season
The Bachelorette will kick off its sixth season on Wednesday night with sisters Elly and Becky Miles sharing the lead.
And while having siblings front the season is a first for the franchise, the show is already set to be outdone by the upcoming American version of The Bachelorette.
The sixteenth season of The Bachelorette US premieres in America on October 13, and it will also feature a shocking twist that’s never been seen before.

Not only will the season feature its oldest Bachelorette ever, 39-year-old Clare Crawley, viewers will also witness the hairstylist dramatically exit the show just weeks into filming.
According to various reports, Clare fell in love with contestant Dale Moss early on in the season and the couple mutually decided to walk away from the show together.
Producers were then forced to replace the blonde beauty, bringing in former Bachelor and Bachelor In Paradise star Tayshia Adams, 30, to film the rest of the season with Clare’s leftover guys.

Not only is Tayshia a fan favourite with viewers, she’s also been praised for bringing some much needed diversity to the franchise as the second ever black Bachelorette.
A dramatic trailer for the new season also hints that up to fifteen of the suitors will threaten to quit the show after Clare finds love with Dale.
By comparison, trailers for the Australian Bachelorette have been noticeably light on drama.

Outside of a few previews of Becky becoming frustrated with one of the men, the rest of the promos have focused on Elly and Becky’s wholesome country girl personas and earnest quest for love.
The tone certainly seems different to last year’s season with Angie Kent, which feature plenty of drama, comedy, and larger than life characters.
Australian viewers will be able to watch Clare’s journey for love on 9Now, although it’s unclear when exactly the episodes will be released on the streaming service.

A trailer for the upcoming season captures all the drama – and seems to hint at the rumored shakeup.
‘Drama this soon, is a little bit crazy,’ Crawley admits in confession, as the promo seemingly refers to the behind-the-scenes controversy that started this summer.
‘You want Clare-ity,’ the announcer says, while one contestant tells Clare, ‘My heart is pounding,’ and Clare tells another contestant, ‘I’m so falling in love with you.’

Another contestant angrily adds, ‘We caught you in a lie, as the announcer adds, ‘You want us to Clare-ify.’
Then we see an angrier side of Clare, when one contestant says, ‘I’m not done yet,’ though Clare snaps back, ‘You are done. Get out of here’ before storming off.
A number of quick shots including Clare crying and a number of guys chasing after Clare, yelling her name, are shown, before the final shot with host Chris Harrison.
‘Congratulations, you’ve just blown up The Bachelorette,’ Harrison tells her, as the promo comes to an end.
