‘The Bachelorette’: Kaitlyn Bristowe Opens Up On The Struggles Of Co-Hosting The Show
Although this could have been expected, given that she was taking over Chris Harrison, it was not so much the hosting that made her feel out of place. Rather, it was the recollection of her own memories that resurfaced during her new role. During an interview with Us Weekly, Kaitlyn was taken aback by how much pressure she was feeling.
She said: “I didn’t realize how much it brought up some either trauma or some anxiety that I may not have dealt with as much as I thought I had. My hormones [were] out of control.” When we look back at her relationship with the show, it is not hard to understand why she would feel this way. During her time, she managed to hook up with Shawn Booth.
While Kaitlyn thought she had found somebody to settle down with, it turned out to be anything but that. The duo had decided to get engaged, and after being together for around three years, they called things off when a wedding seemed to be the logical next step. In a prior interview, Kaitlyn spoke on how she took a body blow after that relationship.
She stated: “I was madly in love with him. I thought that was my person. … I think he felt the pressure to stay together because of what people would think.” Despite the painful memories, it was not all doom and gloom. Kaitlyn managed to form some good friendships and memories, as evidenced by her chemistry with Tayshia Adams.
There were initial worries that the duo would struggle to cope with the demands of the show, but having gotten over the initial problems, the producers have been impressed by how they managed to perform. That is why Kaitlyn cannot wait for the new season to air. She added: “I think it’s going to be really fun. Tayshia and I had a really, really fun time being there.”
The new season cannot come soon enough, but the question is will it be as good as previous ones? Only time will tell.
