Do we have our first official “Bachelor in Paradise” cast member? If nothing else, we can at least confirm that Ashley Salter was offered a gig on the upcoming season, provided of course that she wants to be a part of it while at the “Women Tell All” taping for “The Bachelor” over the weekend.
Chris Harrison confirmed this news speaking in a new interview with TV Guide, saying that there were a variety of big moments that took place during the special. Ashley an her antics were just a small piece of what was a rather large puzzle:
“Britt was the star of the show and is still, I think, in love with the guy. It was brutal. She leaned in on Carly [because she] felt if things had been different, if the girls hadn’t sabotaged her, she and Chris would’ve ended up together. But it was the craziest “Tell All.” Usually we have one or two beats we’re really looking for. We went in thinking Kelsey would be two segments and Britt will be two segments. One of my favorites was with Ashley S. Honestly, it’s like she’s in on the joke, but not completely. She did explain the Mesa Verde thing, but then doesn’t completely explain the Mesa Verde thing. I told her, “I don’t know if I’m allowed to do this, but I’m extending an invitation to you right now to be on [Bachelor in Paradise].”
We’re sure that the show also would love to keep Britt as a part of the franchise moving forward, as well. She and Kaitlyn Bristowe are the current favorites to be the Bachelorette, and we figure whoever is not chosen will probably get offered a spot on the other show.
