Spending some time on The Bachelorette…

Steeler Nation was in a state of surprise Tuesday as word came out that three of their favorite players may be on the ABC hit show, The Bachelorette.


We all tuned in to see Brett, Ben Roethlisberger and Hines Ward at Heinz Field with this season’s Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher.

THE BACHELORETTE - "Episode 1204" - Chris Harrison faces off with Chad about his bad behavior, letting him know that violence is unacceptable, but will Chad make amends with the rest of the men? The pool party continues, but JoJo can't help notice the guys are distracted by the house drama. After the rose ceremony, 14 men leave Los Angeles and begin their worldwide journey to find love, traveling first to the beautiful Laurel Highlands of Southwestern, Pennsylvania. One lucky man and JoJo escape to a surprising romantic date deep in the woods. The night is topped off by a dreamy slow dance at a Dan + Shay live concert. Pittsburgh's Heinz Field plays host to a group of 11 bachelors and superstars Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward and Brett Keisel. Teams face off in a heated battle to win a special after party with JoJo. Finally, the dreaded two-on-one date looms, and it ends with a chilling stand-off and the possibility of revenge, on the finale of the special two-night event on "The Bachelorette," TUESDAY, JUNE 7 (8:00-10:01, ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Charlotte Wilder, FTW USA Today Sports, spoke to Brett a bit about his appearance:

“It was so fun to run through some drills and then have the game. The game was heated, man. It really did come down to the final drive, the final play. The emotions were high.”

Brett’s favorite bachelor:


“Evan was the underdog, and when we started doing drills with Evan, I thought, ‘This is going to be a disaster, this guy’s going to get crushed,’” Keisel said. “But he shined. But then they showed that one shot where he’s fixing his hair with his hands in the mirror before the game, and I’m like, ‘C’mon, Evan, man, we’re about to go play football! You don’t need to worry about that!’”

Brett also jumped on with Russillo and Kannell to talk about his experience on the show…

Of course, the guys asked about the villian of the show, Chad:

“Yeah, I’d like to body slam him”

On the experience:

“It was great having an opportunity to go show them what Heinz Field is all about…and have a couple of my best friends and teammates with me”

“It was so fun sending them through some drills. We got them a little bloody even.

On his career:

I’m done..I had my time in the sun..I’m done.”

And, of course he ended his interview with...

“Let’s go Pens baby, let’s go Pens!”
