Kaitlyn Bristowe Explains Why Having Two Leads for Season 19 of “the Bachelorette” Made Her Feel “triggered.”

In an E! News interview that came out on Tuesday, March 29, the 36-year-old former reality star said to her fiance, Jason Tartick, “I was set off.”

Tartick, who is 33 years old, said that ABC’s choice of Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia as co-leads for the next season of the show was “crazy.” She then told the “Off the Vine” podcast what she really thought about the new arrangement.

“Oh my god, why can’t a woman have her own season?” Bristowe told him. “Clare Crawley was there, and then she was gone. Then Tayshia Adams had to be it. Then it was Katie Thurston, and then Michelle Young right after. Now it’s back to the two Bachelorettes.”

In 2015, Kaitlyn Bristowe began her famous journey as the Bachelorette, along with former Bachelor contestant Brit Nilsson, in season 11 of the show. The men then had to vote on which woman they wanted to keep, and in the end, Bristowe won. Now, it looks like history is repeating itself in some ways, which the Canadians don’t like.

The winner of Dancing With the Stars said on Tuesday, “I just want someone to have their own season, and I don’t want them to be competing against each other.” “I have no idea how the format will work. I don’t know what their little system is going to be, but I know how two Bachelorettes felt, and it felt like the men were pitting us against each other to decide.”

Bristowe added, “And we could all get weird about what’s okay and what’s not in the Bachelor world, because, really, that’s always a grey area. I wish I could have been there because I know how it feels!”

Even though her season got off to a rough start, the co-founder of Spade & Sparrows got engaged to Shawn Booth during the season finale. After three years together, the two people broke up in 2018.

Bristowe moved on with Jason Tartick, who fans first saw on season 14 of The Bachelorette when he was competing for Becca Kufrin’s heart. In May of 2021, the man from Buffalo, New York, and Bristowe got engaged.

In recent years, the singer of “Good for Somebody” has stayed a big part of Bachelor Nation, advising both Thurston, 31, and Young, 28, during seasons 17 and 18 of “The Bachelorette.” Bristowe and Adams, who is 31 years old, were cohosts for the show after Chris Harrison quit in early 2021 because of a scandal involving his support of controversial contestant Rachael Kirkconnell, who was at the time in the middle of a racism scandal.

In 2004, Jesse Palmer was the star of season 5 of “The Bachelor.” In season 26, he became the show’s host and helped Clayton Echard find love. Palmer, 43, surprised a lot of Bachelor Nation when he said earlier this month that he would be back to host season 19 of The Bachelorette.

Bristowe talked about how she felt about being fired as a co-host on the March 22 episode of her podcast. She said that she thinks Palmer is “amazing,” but it will be “sad” for her not to be able to help the women during their hard season.

“I so badly want to help Gabby and Rachel and be there for them,” the TV star said next. “I think having a woman there for them makes sense.”

Even though Bristowe and Adams aren’t back as hosts of The Bachelorette right now, a source told Us Weekly that they were talking about who would host the show. “The doors aren’t permanently shut,” said the insider. “Never say never.”
