The new "Bachelorette" teaser promises lots of "cray."

You see, the fact that the premiere (on May 18) will include the 25 male contestants voting for which woman they want to continue as the Bachelorette caused some major backlash in Bachelor nation. Even former bachelor Sean Lowe called the twist “degrading” and “disgusting.”

However, it looks like Britt and Kaitlyn aren’t all that angry about it… Or at least they’re pretending not to be.

“When they told me there was two, I didn’t see it as degrading at all, because I don’t think it had to do with us being women,” Britt told reporters on a conference call this week. “I just thought that they couldn’t decide, so there was two. I didn’t see it as degrading. I honestly saw it as compliment, like we’re both so great.”

Mmhm, sure, Britt.

She continued, “I like Kaitlyn a lot, so being put on the same level as her…I get it and it’s interesting. It’s kind of more like how a real relationship would unfold…it didn’t upset me. I read a lot of people saying that, but personally, I didn’t really see it that way.”

Though with much less to say, Kaitlyn commented, “I wouldn’t have done it if I thought it was the most degrading thing in the world. I think with The Bachelor and The Bachelorette world, at what point do you say it’s crazy to do that? I think it was just a little twist and turn they decided to do.”

The brunette beauty also added that she “expected it to be a lot more uncomfortable,” but having Britt at her side on the first night “took the pressure off a little bit!”

Well, we definitely can’t wait to see how this all pans out when The Bachelorette premieres on May 18.
