Kaitlyn Bristowe Reveals why she ‘hates’ watching This Season of The Bachelorette

Former Bachelorette and host Kaitlyn Bristowe is not a fan of season 19 of The Bachelorette.

Talking to Today, Kaityln revealed her first reaction when she heard about two Bachelorette’s leading the new season.

“I think I said, ‘Not again,'” she tells Today.

“I remember the shocked reaction when they announced there’s going to be two Bachelorettes on my season. People were like, ‘Why are we pitting women against each other like this? Why are we not letting these women have their own journey after what they’ve been through?’ I didn’t think they’d ever do it again,” she added. 

During the premiere episode of this season, she tweeted that she “f—ng hated this,” and wrote, “I cannot believe they are doing this to these women, and to the men.” Publications also deemed the format “humiliating,” and said it “fails” its two leads.

She also went on to compare it with her own journey as the Bachelorette.

“Luckily for me, it was only one night that I had to do that. I can’t imagine doing that the whole season. I mean, you don’t want to date the same guys as your friends! Out in the real world, you’d never do that. Then again, you wouldn’t do a lot of things from ‘Bachelor’ world in the real world.

“It’s confusing to watch as a viewer because I’m like, I don’t even know if this is good TV. I understand doing crazy things for ratings and getting viewers hooked. But watching this just almost make me feel sad.”

“Yeah, I felt almost second hand insecurities. Both women felt so rejected by Clayton (Echard) and he hurt them so badly,” she continued. “Here they are in a position where they should be finding their love and and they’re having to sit there and feel rejected by you. It’s one thing to have a connection, and another thing to tell you reasons why, like ‘You’re a little rough around the edges.'” she said.
