Why were fans angry about the season’s trailer?
Bachelor fans are furious after a trailer for Clayton Echard's season of the show revealed his top two finalists ahead of the show's season premiere.
The trailer was posted online early this week, first by The Bachelor's Twitter account and then by a Bachelor fan account.
In it, Clayton introduces himself to viewers before glimpses into the season ahead.
The clip features several dates — and kisses — as well as what appears to be a dramatic moment from one of the final episodes.
The latter is causing a fan frenzy online, as it appears that Clayton's top two are revealed in the clip as he confesses to the women: "I want to be fully, fully transparent and I know it's not easy to hear, but I was intimate with both of you."
