    A Chicago grocery store owner who appeared briefly on the season premiere of “The Bachelorette” Monday night will be walking down the aisle—the produce aisle, that is.

    After last season’s controversial "Bachelor" ending, “The Bachelorette” kicked off Monday with some much-needed redemption for Becca Kufrin, but the episode quickly sent many fans into a Twitter frenzy.

    We get a full home tour of the setting for the hit series, "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette."

    Those watching the show were left stunned when Chicago’s lovable Joe Amabile was sent home without advancing to the next round of the hit dating show.

    Amabile quickly went from “average Joe” to the subject of thousands of tweets and headlines, some noting that he was sent home while a man wearing a chicken costume advanced.

    In the end, it appears Kufrin was more into chicken than produce.
