Two ladies enter. Only one gets to stay. Welcome to The Bachelorette Thunderdome!

For the first time in Bachelorette history, two ladies will be handing out the roses in the premiere. Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe, both from Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor, are the two women that 25 men will be vying for, but the big twist? By the end of the premiere on Monday, May 18, only one lady will get to continue the season as the Bachelorette. And the guys get to vote. Insanity, right?!

And this exclusive new poster teases the epic Bachelorette showdown, with Kaitlyn and Britt both featured, sans questionable dresses but stocked with roses, and the tagline reading, "Only one will be...the  Bachelorette."


But judging from the exclusive promo we recently posted, one of the ladies is not exactly down with the whole voting system. "I just don't feel like this is how I should have to do it!" Kaitlyn cried in the video, which featured a first look at a bunch of the eccentric line-up of men that will get to vote between the two women. ("50 Shades of Cray" is definitely the appropriate term!)

This season, fans can expect to see special appearances from everyone's favorite comedian Amy Schumer, boxing champs Leila Ali and rapper Doug E. Fresh, as well as a performance by the Cranberries. Plus, the lucky Bachelorette and her suitors will take romantic trips to New York City, Ireland and...San Antonio. (Hey, it beats Iowa, right?) 

The two Bachelorette twist has earned some backlash from fans, with former Bachelor Sean Lowe going so far as to call the decision "disgusting." For us? It just seems like fun, and like both ladies were down with the idea...and each other. "I mean, I'm super grateful, I think it's an amazing opportunity, it's more than I can comprehend," Britt said after the announcement was made. "I'm still having trouble processing it, but I love Kaitlyn, so we'll see how it goes!"

The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 18 on ABC.
