How to live stream the dramatic ‘Bachelorette’ finale

Miss Alabama 2018 Hannah Brown didn’t win Colton Underwood’s heart when she was a contestant on The Bachelor—but every cloud has a silver lining, especially as far as reality television is concerned. Now she will have a second chance at love as the star of The Bachelorette season 15.

It’s been a controversial, meme-ready, and compelling season, which culminated with last week’s “Men Tell All” episode. Now that season villain Luke P. is out of the picture, will Hannah choose Tyler, Pete, or frickin’ Jed? How can she possibly choose between the leading men? 

It’s been a long season. Suitors competed for Brown’s attention, affection, and most importantly, one of her coveted roses. Along with the usual soapy drama this series is known for, season 15 featured appearances from celebrities. The guest list included reality star J. Alexander, RuPaul’s Drag Race queens Alyssa Edwards and Alaska, actors Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen, and musicians Lukas Graham and Jake Owen, and Boston Celtics players Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch The Bachelorette online.
