What is 'The Bachelorette' Season 20 all about?
The rules of 'The Bachelorette' are based on those of its parent show, 'The Bachelor'. The series centers on a single bachelorette (proven eligible) and a pool of love interests, who may include the bachelorette's future husband. The format is identical to that of the parent show. In contrast to 'The Bachelor', for the final selection, one of two male suitors proposes to the bachelorette. 'The Bachelor', on the other hand, does not necessarily conclude with a proposal. It is not always certain that a proposal will be made at the end of the show. It is up to the bachelor/bachelorette to make that decision. The show has followed the same format until Season 19 and is likely to continue with Season 20 and so on.
What is the buzz around 'The Bachelorette'?
Besides eligible and dashing suitors, the viewers will be treated with tons of drama in the upcoming season. 'The Bachelorette' is returning with Zach's suitor Charity Lawson who was rejected during the previous season. However, Charity's men participate in a 'Barbie Sing-Off' this season and even perform their own version of 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun.' Meanwhile, another buzz about 'The Bachelorette' Season 20 is that it will be slightly shorter than usual.
