Kaitlyn Bristowe dishes on her Ben Higgins hookup in Fantasy Suites. What did the former Bachelorette say about intimacy with her final three contestants? Read on for all the juicy details.
Bachelorette alum eyeing Dancing With The Stars hosting job?
The Bachelor franchise may not be the only ABC show undergoing a huge hosting change. Just two years ago, the network announced the shocking exit of longtime Dancing With The Stars host Tom Bergeron. He was abruptly fired and replaced with former America’s Next Top Model host Tyra Banks.
Ahead of Season 31 of the celebrity dance competition, the rumor mill is churning with speculation about the model’s future with the show. At this point, ABC hasn’t even confirmed there will be another season.
However, if the rumors about a hosting change are true, one frequent ABC reality star is ready to step in as host. Former Bachelorette – and DWTS champ – Kaitlyn Bristowe previously said she was interested in the job. She dropped another hint on her Instagram Stories recently that she would love the chance to host the ABC show now that she’s no longer co-hosting The Bachelorette.
The network announced that Jesse Palmer would take over as the permanent host for both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Along with Tayshia Adams, Bristowe had stepped in after Chris Harrison’s decision to leave the franchise.
Kaitlyn Bristowe dishes on Ben Higgins hookup in fantasy suite
In 2015, Kaitlyn Bristowe found herself looking for love as the Bachelorette lead. However, she is only just now revealing some secrets from her season.
The social media influencer was a recent guest on the Guys We F****d podcast. The podcast hosts, Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson, speak openly about intimacy to normalize the topic. In fact, the episode featuring Bristowe is called “You Got Boned In A Fantasy Suite On National TV.”
The Fantasy Suite dates are a chance for the lead to be alone with their final three men/women without cameras around. Many couples use the opportunity to be intimate, though it’s something of a taboo topic within the franchise.
Bachelor viewers are still reeling from Clayton Echard’s revelation that he was intimate with two of his final three during the Season 26 season that just ended.
So, you can imagine how little intimacy was discussed in 2015 when Kaitlyn was the Bachelorette lead. She did confess to finalist (and eventual winner) Shawn Booth – and viewers – that she was intimate with contestant Nick Viall.
Given that she ultimately picked Booth, fans assumed she was also intimate with him. What about Ben Higgins, her other finalist?
On the podcast, she strongly hinted that she was intimate with all three of her final contestants, including Ben Higgins.
“If I’m going to marry you and get engaged to you on this show, intimacy and having sex is going to be important to me,” Kaitlyn Bristowe explained on the podcast.
OK! magazine notes that Bristowe never uses Ben’s name on the podcast, but the outlet put the clues together.
Shawn Booth’s reaction to fiance’s intimacy with multiple men
Kaitlyn Bristowe also shed light on her allegedly toxic relationship with former fiance Shawn Booth. The former couple got engaged during the season finale and dated for several years before splitting up.
She told the podcast hosts that her ex repeatedly sl*t shamed her for being intimate with her other finalists. In fact, she alleged that he held her actions over her head throughout their relationship.
