Here’s How To Get Sporty & Join Our Official College Candy Bach Bracket League

Finally, it’s here!

Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 22 on ABC and to say we’re excited would be a major understatement. It’s a time for drama. Hello, rose ceremonies. We’ve missed you. We can’t wait to watch Rachel navigate this cast of hotties (and a self-proclaimed tickle monster), Chris Harrison look empathetically into their eyes and of course, wait for some wine to be thrown and tears to be shed. It’s been too long.

If you’re looking to turn your Bachelor-based energy into a little healthy competition, Bach Bracket has your back. Like any fantasy sports-style system, it allows you to create or join a league, establish a team, make your picks and win a prize. In this case, we’re hard at work gathering everything together to make sure you’re rewarded plentifully your Bachelorette predictions.

Here’s how you can get join our official College Candy league.


1. Grab your comfiest “athleisure.”

Follow Rachel’s lead. This is a time for leisurely relaxing… but also skillful athleticism. Stay cozy at home but get your game face (and clothes on) with the help of some “athleisure.” Ok, fine just wear whatever you want, preferably pajamas.


2. Buy an incredibly large bottle of wine.

Again, take a note from Rachel. Rosé comes in 40s now, people. It’s 2017. Be prepared. If you’re nervous, a few sips (or a chug) will make picking a whole lot easier. Helpful hint: if you’re stuck, just go with whichever one is cuter. You’re welcome!


3. Snacks. So many snacks.

This is your fuel for success in this ultra-serious competition. Get what you love… unless it’s pineapples on your pizza! Then ask whoever you’ll be with, which brigns us to the next step.


4. Invite your besties over.

Oh how I've missed my Whitney.!!! #squad #bachelornation #realfriends
