The Bachelorette Season 19 is gearing up to begin filming sometime this week, and fans are itching to find out what the format will be. Will there be 60 men since there are two Bachelorettes? Or will both Rachel and Gabby have to choose from a pool of 30 men? And does this mean the season is going to be disastrous? Honestly, this season could go so many ways, and I’m a bit nervous to see how will play out.
We should find out some information in the next week or so as ABC begins production on The Bachelorette Season 19. This should include not just the format but also the names of all the men that will be joining. Once the contestants’ info is released, we can start making our own conclusions as to how the season is going to work.
While we don’t know a ton of things, we do know who will be returning to take over hosting duties. Will it be Jesse Palmer again? Or will Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe come back? Perhaps we’ll see some new faces!

Who is hosting The Bachelorette Season 19?
Brace yourselves, Bachelor Nation, because Jesse Palmer is indeed returning to be the host. Honestly, I’m totally fine with this decision. I think he is as close to the Chris Harrison vibe a lot of people are missing. Personally, I vote for Wells Adams but I don’t think he’s available otherwise I’m sure he would already be doing it.
It looks like ABC wants to continue keeping Palmer around to test what he would be like in a more permanent role. They tried to have Bristowe and Adams for two seasons, but I don’t think the feedback was that great. I know friends I’ve talked to didn’t really enjoy them hosting, and I didn’t really either.
I’ve enjoyed Palmer taking over, and I look forward to what he brings to the unique format of The Bachelorette Season 19. If anyone can do it, it’s him!
Bristowe and Adams were informed of the decision prior to the official announcement during the After the Final Rose special. It doesn’t look like there is any bad blood and it has more to do with contracts and salary. I’m sure if there is anything shady going on, we’ll know soon enough.
We can’t wait for the return of Jesse Palmer!
