When Does 'The Bachelorette' 2022 Start? How to Watch Season 19

·2 min read

If you're going to watch any season of "The Bachelorette," consider this one. The dating show, a spin-off of "The Bachelor," has been on the air since 2003. Since then, there have been engagements, breakups and a whole lot of drama.

But Season 19, premiering in July, is making history. This will be the first season to feature two Bachelorettes.

Leads Gabriela "Gabby" Windey, 31, and Rachel Recchia, 26, were first introduced in Clayton Echard's season of "The Bachelor," which aired in 2022.

Windey and Recchia both made it to the final three in Echard's season. Echard broke up with the women simultaneously, announcing he was going to pursue Susie Evans — a frontrunner who left the show after learning Echard had been intimate with the other women.

Now, after that tearful Iceland-set finale (and potentially bonding experience), they're off to find love again. Here's what to know about how to watch.
