The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe Joins Dancing With The Stars!
The Bachelor's smooth host Chris Harrison dropped some big news on the fun and silly former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe. While hosting an episode of The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons - Ever! Chris had a video call with Kaitlyn and her boyfriend Jason Tartick to talk about highlights from her season, he hinted at big news he had for her.
While Jason was talking about how grateful he is for the Bachelor franchise because it is the reason the perfect pair met, Chris joked "By the way, I know you mentioned meeting your future wife... you know I'm an ordained minister..."
Kaitlyn perked up quick and squealed "Oh my gosh. Don't even do this! My stomach just sank because I was like wait is this happening right now?" She even thought she felt a ring box in Jason's pocket but were actually just Airpods... Awkward!
Harrison could not help himself and said "I love that we just zinged her and didn't even try to." Finally, he asked her the big question: "In all seriousness, I do have a real question for you Kaitlyn. This is a question I'm so excited to ask you because, well, your life is about to change. Kaitlyn, will you be on the next season of Dancing with the Stars?"
Kaitlyn lit up, gasped, and yelled with joy "Are you serious!? Play it cool, Kaitlyn, play it cool! Are you serious? Chris! I'm shaking. Oh my gosh. Chris, I'm going to cry!"
She even said it reminded her of when Chris asked her if she would be the Bachelorette, "That is the last thing in the world I thought you were going to say. I thought you were going to ask me to take over your job... I don't know."
Of course, she accepted! Kaitlyn actually has an impressive background in dance from before her time on the Bachelor Franchise. Kaitlyn's fans will remember that she had been offered a spot on DWTS years ago but Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss allegedly would not allow her to participate. She said "Actually I was offered it, had the contract & Mike Fliess [sic] told me I wasn’t allowed. He said he didn’t want people wanting fame after his show."
