After what could possibly be the weirdest and most confusing lead up to a Bachelorette season, we finally have a premiere date.
ABC recently announced that season 16 of the reality television show will hit small screens on Tuesday, October 13. That means we only have to wait a month and a half more to find out what the heck is really going on in what was supposed to be Clare Crawley’s season.
The announcement also comes alongside a promotional poster that we can only categorize as interesting. Unlike previous posters for the show, featuring sparkly gowns, roses and glam, this photograph shows Crawley in jeans and a chic velvet blazer with a man pulling up his sock. The imagery is a nod to the 1967 hit film, The Graduate, which tells the story of a college grad having an affair with a woman older than him. We get the connection.
