Kaitlyn Bristowe Just Revealed a Fact That Could’ve Totally Changed Bachelor History
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’t mean there isn’t still plenty of drama stemming from past seasons. Series alum Kaitlyn Bristowe just revealed a fact that could’ve totally changed The Bachelor history.
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’ season back in 2014.
“Can you imagine?” 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. “My whole life would be so different,” she continued, though she added, “Mentally I was not prepared at all to be in a relationship.”

Though she didn’t get a call for Galavis’ 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’s 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’ season of The Bachelor? Let us know @BritandCo!
