By the time you get to the final four on “The Bachelor,” we have a feeling that nobody really wants to be eliminated. sure, you have contestants who are there probably because they either want to be on “The Bachelorette” or “Bachelor in Paradise,” but we figure that by the time you get to this point in the competition, you have been a part of the process for so long that you probably are thinking that you’re going to be the one. This show concentrates so much of your life around romance and this one guy, it’s hard to think about much else. Remember, most of the time the contestants don’t have access to technology or most of the outside world during production.
Thanks to the “Women Tell All” taping this past weekend, we have a variety of reactions from the recently-eliminated Kaitlyn Bristowe, and probably more than we’ve gotten from any other contestant this week. Speaking to Us Weekly, she really made it clear that she felt she was absolutely going to make it into the final two:
“That was shocking … I was just so unaware and blind going into [it] that that was even an option. That was probably the most confident I felt going into a rose ceremony. When he brought Becca back, my first instinct was ‘Oh, I guess Whitney is going home.’ That’s how confident I was.”
However sad that Kaitlyn may feel about her elimination, this may eventually be washed away courtesy of the potential she has as the next star of “The Bachelorette.” At the moment, she is probably one of the runaway favorites for the gig, with Britt Nilsson probably being the only real other contender. The advantage to hiring Kaitlyn is that she will probably be very fun, and will not rely on her contestants to be good TV.
Hopefully, we’ll find out more about if she is the “Bachelorette” during the finale in a week and a half. For now, head over here to get some further news related to the show, or here to sign up for everything we cover via our CarterMatt Newsletter. (Photo: ABC.)
