She expressed how she wishes she had the chance to help new co-lead "Bachelorettes" Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia "so bad," especially to give them support from a woman.

Bristowe joined Dancing With the Stars in 2020 and hit the road this year to be part of the show's live tour, and has also been promoting her podcast. She explained that while there are "a lot of exciting things" going on in her life right now, it also "feels very overwhelming" trying to handle it all. Hopefully she won't feel as stressed now that she doesn't have as many responsibilities on her plate!
