Fans reacted to the news that Tayshia & Kaitlyn will not be hosting the new season of The Bachelorette
On social media, fans had a huge reaction to the change in hosting. Some felt that with Palmer hosting, the “girl power” vibe of the last two seasons would be gone.
“We want Tayshia and Kaitlyn, not Jesse, to be the Bachelorette host — give people what they want!” one fan tweeted.
“Okay sure Jesse had class but he was possibly the most unhelpful host I could have imagined,” another wrote. “He literally nodded his head and said, ‘Wow, yeah, that’s hard,’ and that was it. At the very least, Kaitlyn and Tayshia offered advice and moral support. “
“I don’t like him, but Jesse hardly matters,” another I Agree. “Kaitlyn and Tayshia helped the girls a lot. It just makes sense to have a female host for the bachelorette and a male host for the bachelorette
“It’s very disappointing that the #TheBachelor producers chose the emotionally stunted Jesse to host The Bachelorette after seeing Kaitlyn and Tayshia in action last year. Why? Jesse didn’t add anything interesting last season,” another wrote. “At least Gabby and Rachel have each other.”
