Kaitlyn Bristowe has been a Bachelor Nation icon since her appearance on The Bachelor season 19 in 2015. Though she didn’t win Chris Soules’ heart, she starred in season 11 of The Bachelorette. Fast forward to 2022 and Bristowe is planning her wedding to Jason Tartick, but still remains in the public eye on the podcast circuit. She has hosted her own podcast, Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe, since 2017.
On June 14, 2022, Bristowe was a guest on The Viall Files Podcast, in which she spoke to host and former Bachelor Nick Viall on a variety of topics. One of the main talking points was Bristowe’s disappointment at not being selected to host season 19 of The Bachelorette, which will see the debut of two bachelorette girls, Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia.
Why Bristowe’s guest stint was short-lived
Bristowe hoped she would be offered the hosting job because of her success co-hosting The Bachelorette with Tayshia Adams in seasons 17 and 18. When Bristowe was unexpectedly forced to host “After the Final Rose” (due to COVID) without Adams, she excelled.
During the podcast, Viall praised Britowe for her hosting skills during ATFR. She thanked him graciously, then admitted, “And I was a little drunk too … I had some tequila shots to calm the nerves.”
Viall asked Bristowe if she was experiencing FOMO [fear of missing out] about not being selected to host Gabby and Rachel’s season. Bristowe admitted she definitely is. She explained, “My ego took a hit when I realized I was no longer a hostess because I felt like I deserved to keep going, especially when there were two bachelorette girls, and I just felt like … I should have.” proved me.”
When Bristowe received the devastating phone call telling her that Jesse Palmer would be hosting The Bachelorette, she felt “blinded.” The producer said, “I’m sure you saw that coming,” but she “was like, ‘No. I actually didn’t… so sad’”
The 36-year-old admitted that if she takes her ego out of the equation, she can see where producers would like someone to “consistently” do the hosting. Viall then asked if she thought you was consistent, to which she replied, “I think they probably looked at me at first like, ‘Oh Kaitlyn, she’s so crazy. She’ll just get drunk and be like an idiot.”
view in the future
Bristowe told Viall that she really enjoyed being with Tayshia Adams, although she had mixed feelings at first. “At first I didn’t see the longevity, but in the end when I had to do it on my own, I was like, ‘Oh crap! I really enjoy this and I could do that.
Despite her disappointment, Bristowe is optimistic about the future and hopes the praise she’s received for her hosting job at AFTR will open new doors. Her dream is to host “Dancing with the Stars,” which could be an actual possibility considering there are petitions to have Tyra Banks fired from her hosting and production duties. reports Screen Rant.
With Bristowe winning DWTS in season 29 and now with hosting experience, fans believe she could be the ideal replacement for Banks. According to Screen Rant, “Kaitlyn would be the perfect choice to replace Tyra as host of Dancing with The Stars. She would enchant audiences with her charming personality… She knows when to be a team player and when to stand out.”
