While the series is titled The Bachelorette, season 19 will have an interesting twist in that instead of one woman looking for love, there will be two. That’s right, the two runner-ups from The Bachelor season 26 are co-starring in this new installment of the series. 

Naturally with there being two people on the quest for romance, fans should expect the usual Bachelorette antics multiplied. We’re talking double the romance, double the heartbreaks and double the "oh my gosh" moments. Oh, and we can’t forget to mention that there is an actual set of twins competing for love this season. 

Here’s everything we know about The Bachelorette season 19.  

The Bachelorette season 19 release date 

The Bachelorette season 19 is set to premiere on Monday, July 11, at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC. The episode airs the next day over on Hulu

To date, no official plans have been announced in terms of a UK release date. Once we receive additional information on the matter, we’ll be sure to provide an update.

The first woman looking for love is Gabby Windey. Windey was born and raised in O'Fallon, Illinois before moving to Colorado where she would eventually become a cheerleader for the Denver Broncos, and later an ICU nurse for the University of Colorado Hospital.

Joining Windey is Rachel Recchia. Recchia was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Florida. In addition to being a reality personality, she's also a flight instructor and commercial pilot.

How to watch The Bachelorette season 19 

The Bachelorette season 19 is an ABC reality series, and the show airs live exclusively on the broadcast network.

Now to date, no official plans have been announced as to when the season may begin airing in the UK. However, that doesn’t have to stop fans from tuning in. 

Would-be viewers in the UK may want to consider utilizing a virtual private network. A VPN is a tool that enables consumers from anywhere in the world to watch content from other countries by accessing servers from the country of origin. Essentially, a VPN routes network traffic through a specific set of servers in a specific country, allowing viewers to watch content on an encrypted feed over a computer.

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is one of the easiest and affordable ways to watch what you want from anywhere you want to watch it. Plus it'll help keep your network traffic away from any prying eyes on public networks.

And it's a great way to keep up with action from anywhere in the world.
