Why won’t The Bachelorette be airing tonight?

The Bachelorette is delaying this tonight’s episode by two days as the United States is heading right into Election Day, as I type this. It’ll be quite a chaotic day which will lead into the late-night as everyone awaits election results.

Naturally, folks will be occupied with watching the coverage, given the unique importance and attention this election is getting. And obviously, ABC will not get in the way of watching how this pivotal moment will unfold, so hence, the episode is delayed.

I think it’s safe to assume that it’s going to be a stressful week, which is why I’m relieved that The Bachelorette is still going to air a new episode this week. It’ll be the perfect way to get our minds off of whatever is going on in the outside world as I’m sure we’ll need it!

The Bachelorette will go back to its regularly scheduled Tuesday night slot next week so we only have to wait 5 days before the next episode! Yay!

What an episode it will be this week, folks! After months of rumors surrounding Clare Crawley’s abrupt departure with a contestant (have you guys heard of Dale Moss? Not sure if it’s been made clear who he is), we’re finally going to learn how it all goes down.

We all have an idea based on promos, however, we have no idea how it will all play out. Will she be confronted by all the other men because they’re understandably pissed off? Or will the producers just intervene and tell her that she needs to make a decision, STAT?

Whatever happens, I know we’re all here for it!

And as Crawley gets ready to bid farewell, we’re going to be welcoming Tayshia Adams to the fold as her replacement. I have so many questions about how this will happen. Oh, so many.

Like, are the men allowed to leave if they’re not interested? Will someone that was sent home be brought back (please, not Yosef!)? Or will new men be brought in to replace the ones that have already left?

We’re not going to learn everything during this week’s two-hour episode, but we’re certainly one step closer to figuring out this ridiculous mystery!

Next. The Bachelorette’s Zach J caught liking tweets totally dragging Clare Crawley. dark

Hello, Tayshia Adams, welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.

Tune in for this week’s episode of The Bachelorette on a special night–Thursday, November 5 on ABC at 8 PM EST!
