‘Bachelorette’ to Feature Muppets, Gloriana and Emily’s Daughter, Ricki (Minor Spoilers)

This is no ordinary Bachelorette, as the 19 remaining men find out when they are “tested” from the start about how they might fit into Emily’s world as a dad, as well as working at a charity event that is near and dear to her heart. Now ensconced in the sprawling 12,000-square foot mansion in Emily’s hometown of Charlotte, the men quickly learn that roses will be at stake on the one group date and on two individual dates. However, the competition is revved up when they learn that not all the men will get dates before the next rose ceremony, so the bachelors must take advantage of every opportunity to score points with the Bachelorette. A special concert by hit country music trio Gloriana and a charming, scene-stealing romp with the acclaimed Muppets, featuring Kermit and Miss Piggy, at the charity event are real delights. But after careful deliberation, Emily must eliminate three men, as she starts to try and make her fairytale come true, on “The Bachelorette,” Monday, May 21st at 9:01 pm ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.
