What do a buff fitness coach, whose mother's untimely death left him with painful scars; a dashing executive recruiter, who is a Princeton graduate; a cocky and confident architectural engineer with movie star good looks; an insurance agent, who is the total package, and a charming dentist, who has a million dollar smile, all have in common? They're all on the hunt for the new Bachelorette - whether that is Britt or Kaitlyn -- when the 11th edition of the female version of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelorette," premieres with a two-night special, MONDAY, MAY 18 at a special time (9:01-11:00 p.m., ET), and TUESDAY, MAY 19 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Editors' note: "The Bachelorette" will return to its regular time slot on Monday, May 25 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET).

Britt and Kaitlyn arrive at the mansion for their big night. The two stunning women stand side by side as the limos roll up and 25 handsome men try their best to leave a lasting impression. While some suitors pay equal attention to both Bachelorettes, some just can't hide their feelings for one or the other. Brady, a singer/song writer makes an immediate connection with Britt and shares that she is why he is there. Jared unbuttons his shirt to reveal his super hero persona known as "Love Man." Justin decides to use a bunch of helium-filled balloons to offer his high-pitched compliments to both women. Kaitlyn has her own not-so-secret admirer, as Shawn B. whispers that he is there just for her.

The men are just getting started showing off: Handsome law student Josh starts to strip in order to give both ladies a standing lap dance. Chris, a dentist with a sweet tooth, drives up in a car shaped like a cupcake. Not to be outdone, Shawn E. pulls up in the driveway behind the wheel of a hot tub car.

Once inside, the men clamor for alone time with both Britt and Kaitlyn. Britt and Brady talk like they are old friends. Tanner, who offered Britt a tissue upon meeting her, gets a playful shout out from the striking lady, who admits she does cry a lot. One man suddenly changes his mind about which Bachelorette he will support. An inebriated Ryan M. gets himself in a world of trouble, acting so inappropriately that Chris Harrison finally has to step in and take matters into his own hands.

The men vote on their choice for the Bachelorette and everyone holds their breath waiting for the results, which are met with applause and cheers.

When Chris brings out the coveted first impression rose, the men try everything to capture that prize. Then, the other apprehensive men wait for the start of the season's first rose ceremony. Finally, the Bachelorette will have 19 men who will move into the mansion and continue on the quest for her heart.

Ben H., 26, a software salesman from Denver, CO
Ben Z., 26, a fitness coach from San Jose, CA
