The Bachelorette starts at a new time this week. Fans won’t want to miss a minute of Rachel’s first dates with a side of man-drama.

Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay’s journey to find love continues with the first round of dates, celebrity guests, and a visit from one contestant’s girlfriend. That’s right. Week 2 will bring a little bit of romance, lots of drama, and an epic showdown between one of Rachel’s guys and the woman he ditched to go on the show.

Last week, the Season 13 premiere started at 9 p.m. ET due to the Dancing with the Stars finale. Beginning with Week 2 (May 29), The Bachelorette will air at 8 p.m. ET every Monday night unless otherwise noted by ABC. Check out our weekly episode guide for air dates and the scoop on where Rachel travels this season. (Yes, it’s spoiler free)

Here’s a look at what fans can expect during tonight’s episode. According to ABC, Rachel will go on her first one-on-one date and two group dates this week.

First one-on-one date

Peter is the lucky guy who gets Rachel all to himself. Well, not really. The Bachelorette star takes her dog, Copper on the date. Let’s hope Peter isn’t a cat lover because the date involves a pool party for dogs. Best date ever.

First group date

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis will make a guest appearance to judge a “husband material obstacle course.” Rachel must want to see how these guys would handle dad life.

We can guarantee you that the obstacle course will be nothing like being a real parent. But let’s see how contestant Kenny King does — he’s the only single dad on the show and we’re rooting for him.

Second group date

Another celebrity guest, NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, will show up for a basketball date. Expect lots of sweaty guys trying to show off their skills (or lack of) on the court. Oh, and there will be drama. Isn’t that why we watch The Bachelorette?

At some point during the date, DeMario Jackson’s girlfriend will show up and call him out for going on the show. That’s right. They are still in a relationship. Or that’s what she says as she scrolls through tons of love-texts from DeMario. Bad boys, bad boys…whatcha gonna do….

Oh, DeMario. We think Rachel is going to give you the boot.

Get your popcorn and wine ready — The Bachelorette starts at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
