Season 11, Episode 1: Points

Well, well, well. It’s gonna be #TeamKaitlyn for season 11 of “The Bachelorette.” If you selected Kaitlyn to be the next Bachelorette, good eye. Please award yourself an additional 50 points.

From the looks of the season preview, I stand by what we wrote on Twitter last night:

  1. Lynn says:

    Didn’t Clint give Kaitlyn that painting and Joe gave her the moonshine?

  2. Matt says:

    what do we do for creepy Nick? How can we incorporate him in? Wildcard: how many episodes he lasts? Thoughts?

    • Matt says:

      also are you going to add “penetration points”?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Nick was a curveball we were not expecting. He is not eligible for the draft, but I’m sure we’ll come up with some Wildcard points categories centered around interactions with him.

  3. Courtney says:

    When Shawn B said “I believe in love at first tight and I actually think it might have happened tonight”, does that count as saying they are falling in love?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Not quite! We need it to be a little more explicit than that. (Um how cute are those two, though?)

  4. Shea says:

    So this is my first time doing a fantasy league and I can’t even put into works how frickin exciting it has made this season already and its only week one! I have to say thank you thank you THANK YOU for doing all the heavy lifting (like making the spreadsheet and tracking the points) to make this so awesome for all of us!

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Hi Shea! We’re so happy that you’re so excited and glad to hear that we’re making it easier for you!

  5. Maeghen says:

    Hi there! Two things: Didn’t Justin mention having a child? And also wasn’t Jonathan the first to express disappointment in the Bachelorette choice, not Tony?

    Thanks!

    • Kaitlin says:

      Yes I agree with both of these things! Justin definitely talked about having a kid and right after they announced who the bachelorette was, Jonathan was the first one they showed expressing his opinion. Tony was just more dramatic about it, lol.

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Hi Maeghen, sorry for the long delay. You’re right that it was Justin and not Ryan B. that mentioned having a kid in episode 1. It’s hard to tell these dudes apart in the first 60 minutes. We stand by Tony expressing disappointment however! Thanks for pointing that out. Points are updated!

  6. Dan says:

    This is so great, thank you so much for doing this once again!

    Need to ask – I think Justin mentioned he has a kid! And also, when did Ryan B. mention his kid?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Hey Dan! You’re right; it was Justin who had the kid and NOT Ryan B. Points are updated accordingly, and we’ll be sure to include a call-out tomorrow so everyone who plays along with us across the country is aware. Thanks!

  7. Blacknteal says:

    Tanner should also get a +5 “Steal her/You” bonus when he takes Kaitlyn away from drunk Ryan

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Hi there – good call. Even though he wasn’t interrupting with the intention of talking to Kaitlyn, he still did interrupt. We’ll add those points to his total for this week.

  8. I’m pretty certain Ryan B doesn’t have a kid and didn’t mention it…I set my draft up so all the dad’s are in one box and one of your choices must be a dad, and he isn’t in the box. I can’t find anything online about him being a dad…

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      You’re right! It’s Justin who has the kid and not Ryan B. So sorry about that! Points are updated accordingly.

  9. chickky311 says:

    We decided to include Nick as part of our draft. That way the person that drafted Nick will get any wildcard points associated with him. (I’m the one that picked him, so hopefully that wasn’t a mistake letting him take up a slot on my team!) We know from the previews that he’s there at least long enough to kiss Kaitlyn, so hopefully he brings some interesting drama to the mix!

  10. Taryn Brewer says:

    I had a question, do you guys post what the wildcard category is before the episode or only after? Where do I find that information?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Hi Taryn! We always tweet the Wildcard points for the episode before it starts. Follow us at @bachfantasy

  11. Matt says:

    where do you usually post the wild card weekly points?

  12. Angela says:

    I’m a veteran Bach Fantasy League commissioner, but this is my first time using your spreadsheet. So far, I’m beyond impressed. Thank your tech genius for me!

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Thank you so much! I’ll pass the news along to my co-founder, Becca. She is the whiz behind the spreadsheet.
