Season 11, Episode 1: Points

Permission to approach the bench?

What’d y’all think of last night’s crop? We think there are a few standouts. A lot of awesomely horrible hair decisions. A good number of dudes who aspire to play professional sports and/or played for one season when they were 19 but will continue to introduce themselves as a “professional ____ player” until they’re in a wheelchair. Also, an opera singer, firefighter, and pantsapreneur. Gang’s all here!

Are you already calling a frontrunner? Let us know in the comments! And please check back for an episode recap, which will be posted here by Wednesday morning at the latest.

Welcome to “The Bachelorette” Fantasy League, Season 11

So you want to create a fantasy league for Andi’s season? You’ve come to the right place.

We’ll do all the grunt work and score each episode for you. Read on for instructions on how to draft, how we score, and how to find out if you’re kicking everyone’s butts.

How It Works

1) Recruit a group of “Bachelorette”-loving friends. One of you should be the League Commissioner, the go-to person for all things Bach Fantasy.

2) Figure out the best way for your league to draft contestants (read more on that below) and submit your contestant picks to your league commissioner.

3) Watch the “Bachelorette” every Monday night, beginning May 19.

4) Visit this blog every Tuesday morning to see how each of your contestants scored. The league commissioner should add up the point totals for each team in order to figure out the weekly rankings.

The Draft

You have a few options when it comes to drafting your team of five contestants.

1) Live draft in person

Gather up your nearest and dearest, DVR “The Bachelorette,” and watch the show up through the last limo introductions. At this point, pause the show. Have each player draft their 5 contestants on a piece of paper and turn them into the commissioner.

2) Virtual live draft

So your teammates all live in different time zones, eh? We feel your pain, as we’re all spread across the continent too. For this to work, everyone should watch the show in his or her respective homes. Pause after limo introductions, before the real shenanigans begin. Email your appointed league commissioner with your five contestants.

3) Pre-show draft, based on contestants’ bios

Read through the contestants’ bios. It’s a treasure trove. Select your five players and email your league commissioner.

Points Categories

You’ll be rewarded for drafting bold contestants but more so for drafting contestants who go the distance. Points are divided into Phrases, Actions, and Roses.
