What?!? A new season of The Bachelorette with no drama? How can that even be possible? Well, it’s not – entirely. Although we know that some of Emily Maynard‘s bachelors have deep, dark secrets, the show’s host, Chris Harrison says the drama will be toned down this season. Uh-oh, are we in for a snoozefest? More after the jump!
“Emily’s season is drastically different. Her being a single mom changed the tone from night one. The guys all came in knowing it was Emily and wanting it to be Emily. They had to know that she’s looking at this through a very different light, as a parent. That changes everything,” Chris Harrison recently revealed in a press conference for the upcoming season of The Bachelorette (which premieres Monday, by the way).
And that was not the only revelation that Chris shared, in fact, we can expect less drama this season. Chris explained: “It’s just a very different season with very different drama. You don’t have the frat house humor and drama that maybe you’ve seen in seasons past with younger contestants. I liken it to Jason Mesnick’s season. There’s a much more serious tone. Calling it drama almost doesn’t do it justice. Emily’s trying to figure out if these guys are right to start a family with.”
Chris Harrison also responded to Emily Maynard’s comments of this season being more conservative: “Hot tubs always mysteriously appear! No, this season is very different. The thing about Emily too is that she’s not a crazy bungee jumping, sky diving kind of woman. She’s a Southern gem who likes to wear high heels and dresses. We cater and accommodate to who our Bachelorette is. In Charlotte, early on, there’s a building that we scale but it’s very tame. You definitely cater to who they are. You don’t bow down to their demands but we want her to be happy.”
It sounds to us like this may be a very boring season of The Bachelorette, but perhaps, Emily will actually find true love! What do you think? Do you thrive on the drama, or can the show do without it? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
