Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe on the Future of ‘The Bachelor’ Franchise


Tayshia: Yes, absolutely.

Katie recently told us that it was so nice to have you both with her, because she wouldn’t want to talk about some of this stuff with her dad. It does beg the question: Why hasn’t there been a woman host or co-host for The Bachelorette? 

Kaitlyn: I agree.

Tayshia: That would be cool, that would be exciting.

Kaitlyn: I think having Tayshia and I there helped Katie get through the process and feel less alone. Like you said, you’re shocked it hasn’t happened before; I think maybe people watching now and us being in that position, we’re like, “Yeah, why hasn’t this been a thing?! It makes sense!”

Katie also told us that her season ends with a “first.” Can you explain what that means?

Kaitlyn: That’s all we really can say! But there’s a lot of firsts, actually.

Tayshia: I’m surprised she just said one. I think there’s multiple. We were there and still shocked by how much went down. I would just say buckle up because it’s gonna get real good, soon.

You were there to watch all the conversations Katie was having with the men…any deep ones that impressed you?

Kaitlyn: Yeah, I think that was the fun and importance of us coming in as mentors because we’re able to have these kinds of conversations with Katie that she might not feel comfortable having with someone else. Even just talking about her fantasy suite experience, or what something means to her, or how sex is important to her, was always an important conversation that came up.

Tayshia: Also, to address the issues that she is looking for in a partner, so whatever that may look like, to lean into it and have those important conversations.

Were there any social media reactions to the premiere episode that surprised you?

Kaitlyn: I was dying at all the cat stuff. But that didn’t surprise me!

Tayshia: I think everyone liked Tre coming out of the truck with all the balls. And the box.

Kaitlyn: Oh the box. I didn’t think the box was going to land with people, but it did.
