Introducing . . . All the Men Vying for the Hearts of Elly and Becky Miles on The Bachelorette
The cast of The Bachelorette was announced at the start of October, with 20 men vying for sister duo Elly and Becky Miles’ hearts this season.
Megan Pustetto’s So Dramatic! podcast revealed earlier this month that the men each chose which woman to pursue after the Bachelorettes and their suitors got to know each other in the first week, with 13 choosing Elly and seven Becky. We know that they then head out on single, double and group dates as the men try to woo 25-year-old Elly and 30-year-old Becky.
Elly and Becky have also each made it clear that they haven’t let any connections with or possessiveness about the blokes get in between their strong bond, with Elly telling POPSUGAR Australia last month that anyone Becky was interested in went in “the brother basket”. Their strategy was just to go in and meet the men, and for both the men and women to figure out who they’re interested in. Becky added, “If someone likes Elly, then I’m going to be turned off by that.”
We first met many of the blokes, aged between 24 and 35, in promos for the season, with a number of them seemingly making a big impression when they arrived. We can expect an entrepreneur, explosives expert, property valuer, construction worker, filmmaker and personal trainer — and that’s just the start. But none moreso than Joe, who Elly already knew from Newcastle.
Talking to POPSUGAR Australia, Elly was pretty coy about their relationship: “It’s a small world, but Newcastle’s even smaller, so there’s a chance you know bloody nearly everyone. I did know Joey and I guess the history behind that will all play out on the show.”
While we may not know a lot about the men going onto The Bachelorette, aside from the fact they come from such far-flung countries as Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Italy and England, as well as all across Australia, we do know that both Elly and Becky say they’re “really happy” with their chosen beaus!
