We may be fully into the action with this season of The Bachelorette (and still trying to recover from the Magic Mike moves!) while anticipating all the upcoming action on season four of Bachelor in Paradise, but that doesn鈥檛 mean there isn鈥檛 still plenty of drama stemming from past seasons. Series alum Kaitlyn Bristowe just revealed a fact that could鈥檝e totally changed The Bachelor history.

Kaitlyn Bristowe

According to Us Weekly, she gave the deets to fans during the second episode of her new Off the Vine podcast when the 31-year-old admitted that, despite first appearing during season 19 of The Bachelor (as well as on the eleventh season of The Bachelorette), she originally tried out for Juan Pablo Galavis鈥 season back in 2014.

鈥淐an you imagine?鈥 she asked, revealing that at the time she was going through a breakup and was urged by her friend Bri Cook to make an audition tape. 鈥淢y whole life would be so different,鈥 she continued, though she added, 鈥淢entally I was not prepared at all to be in a relationship.鈥

Though she didn鈥檛 get a call for Galavis鈥 season as her tape arrived a little late (in fact, after the cast had already been picked), it was still enough to catch the eyes of the folks behind the scenes, earning Bristowe a spot on the very next season.

And from there, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette history continued, with the dance instructor finding love with Shawn Booth, who she鈥檚 living happily with in Nashville as they plan their future wedding. But, oh, what could have been!

What do you think might have happened if Kaitlyn Bristowe had appeared on Juan Pablo Galavis鈥 season of The Bachelor? Let us know @BritandCo!
