Kaitlyn Bristowe says she wasn’t allowed to compete on “DWTS,” and the reason why is fishy
Okay, this is strange, former Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe wasn’t allowed to compete on Dancing With the Stars, and based on her story, the reason why doesn’t really add up.
This week, Bristowe revealed that she was unable to compete on DWTS following her season of The Bachelorette, and it’s totally bizarre. According to the former Bachelor contestant — she was on Chris Soules’ season — she wasn’t given the chance to dance, but the men before and after her season were.
Yeah, this is SO not okay.
After a fan asked why the Canadian reality star wasn’t on DWTS when both Soules and Nick Viall — he’s one of the newest contestants — were offered spots on the show, she got real.
“Actually I was offered it, had the contract & Mike Fliess told me I wasn’t allowed,” Bristowe tweeted on Monday. “He said he didn’t want people wanting fame after his show.”
Bristowe has never been one to beat around the bush on Twitter or on her season of The Bachelorette, but this is pretty intense.
Fliess, who is the creator of the Bachelor series, later tweeted his support to Bristowe in regards to competing on the dance show, but it was too little, too late.
The 31-year-old star retweeted this comment and added her own sassy yet very truthful response.
“Thanks I’ll get right on that opportunity 2 yrs ago. I wonder what changed your mind? ,” she tweeted to her fans.
While we all know there are two sides to every story, based on Bristowe’s tweets, this seems pretty unfair.
She wasn’t able to compete because it would look like she “wanted fame,” but both men were cast on the ABC dance show without issue? There is definitely something very strange about this situation.
