“The Bachelorette” spoiler alert warning.

Reports have surfaced online that two guys from Kansas City will compete on the next round of “The Bachelorette.”

And if the rumors are true, the casting folks at ABC are geniuses. One of the guys is said to be the ex-boyfriend of Kansas City’s own Nikki Ferrell, who in turn is now the “ex” of infamous “Bachelor” Juan Pablo Galavis.

You might need a scorecard for this one. Just saying.

The upcoming Season 11 of “The Bachelorette” had twists from the get-go. For the first time there will be two bachelorettes: Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe. They’ll start the show together but the bachelors will vote on which one stays.

TV blogger Reality Steve has the early scoop on the guys vying for Kaitlyn’s heart. (He’s also filing daily updates and spoilers about the ongoing filming. Apparently Britt’s fans have been hassling him. “I mean holy Jesus, you have no idea how annoying these people are,” he recently wrote.)

Ryan McDill, who broke up with Ferrell in July of 2013 just a few months before she signed up for “The Bachelor,” is reportedly one of the contestants. The 28-year-old University of Missouri communications grad lives in KCMO and is said to own a local auto parts business.

Last year McDill told Life & Style magazine that he made a mistake by breaking up with Ferrell. “I could see the two of us working out long-term,” he said. “I could see having a family with her. “After we broke up, there were times where I would say, ‘I don’t know if that was the right decision.’”

Maybe he’s changed his mind about that?

Reality Steve also reports that Tanner Tolbert of KCK will be on the show. The 26-year-old is a finance manager at Legends Honda. While working on his sports management degree at KU he worked with the Jayhawks’ football team, the TV blogger reports.

No air date has been announced yet.

Stay tuned.
