The men are telling all when you next watch The Bachelorette 2021 online, even without cable. Michelle Young is taking her turn as lead of the ABC reality dating show. She's whittled down a cast of 30 men to three suitors: Brandon, Joe and Nayte. But before they head off to fantasy suites and the finale, Michelle will face the eliminated contestants — including The Bachelor 2022 Clayton Echard.

The Bachelorette 2021 start time, channel

The Bachelorette 2021 airs the "Men Tell All" episode on Monday, December 6 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Following that is the Fantasy Suites episode (Tuesday, Dec. 14) and the Finale/After the Final Rose (Tuesday, Dec. 21).

Michelle is the second Bachelorette this year, following Katie Thurston. Both were contestants on Matt James' season of The Bachelor. At the end of her season, Katie got engaged to Blake Moynes. Now, it's Michelle's chance to find love. And according to Bachelorette spoilers guru, Reality Steve, she succeeded!

The Bachelorette 2021 is hosted once again by Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe, both former Bachelorette leads. And unlike Matt and Katie's installments, this one wasn't filmed in a bubble. Bachelor Nation fans will see Michelle and her men traveling to her hometown of Minnesota.

Here's everything you need to know to watch The Bachelorette 2021 online right now.
