The Bachelorette season 16 starts at 8 p.m. ET today (Tuesday, Oct. 13). It airs weekly every Tuesday on ABC.

OK, get your roses at the ready, and prepare to watch The Bachelorette 2020 online. It appears we're in for a lot of shenanigans, with possibly the most dramatic season ever (truly). The Bachelorette season 16 follows Clare Crawley's journey to find love — and if the spoilers are to believed, she not only finds it early on but Tayshia Adams arrives to take her place as the lead.

This edition of The Bachelorette will be very different from seasons past, due to the coronavirus pandemic. But a few things haven't changed: The Bachelorette will meet a bunch of men, she'll hand out roses and some of her suitors will be there for the wrong reasons. 

The Bachelorette 2020 was initially scheduled to debut in May and air over the summer, but filming on Clare's season was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In July, production resumed within a bubble at a resort in California. 

The intervening months saw an unusual occurrence: One of Clare's initial cast members was promoted! Matt James was chosen to be The Bachelor 2021, and he'll be the first Black Bachelor lead in franchise history.

Here is everything to know about how to watch The Bachelorette 2020 online, even if you don't have cable.
