So I know it seems very early to start this thread..but doing so as we just had our first confirmed contestant. :haha: Kaitlyn Bristowe will be on the season!

 

Glad she’s finally getting the opportunity after what she went through last time! ❤️

Normally would be against 3 Bachelor contestants in a row but I know that she's wanted to do the show for a while so I'm very happy for her. She is also a ringer as well which is great. 🙂

 

Who should we partner her with? I'm thinking Pasha or Brandon.

Interview with Kaitlyn from ET talking more about DWTS. She’s not been given much information yet, they seem to still be sorting things out but have told her to prepare for the fall so I guess similar time to usual.

 

She also got asked about which pro she’d want, she said her #1 is Derek but would be happy with any of the current pros. Although did namecheck Gleb in there.

 

Also lol Lauren (the reporter) mentioned that she’d heard a rumour of Carole Baskin. :dead: I made reference to this in the wish list thread...not as a wish but someone I could see the show going after. Idk if I can see her saying yes, but I definitely think they would have tried to approach her. :haha:

Normally I’d roll my eyes at another Bachelor Nation member, but I can’t be annoyed about Kaitlyn doing the show.

 

Bachelors have always been offered DWTS on a silver platter no matter what, while it’s been extremely noticeable that other than original Bachelorette Trista (who was on the very first season) and Hannah (who was easily the most popular Bachelorette to date) they never gave the Bachelorette leads the same opportunity.
 

Kaitlyn has been very vocal about wanting to do the show and then being blocked from doing it at the last second by Mike Fleiss, so this is them righting a wrong even if it took 5 years.

Lol I think the chances of this are VERY slim but also, the trainwreck we deserve :wub:

She's tall - I'll allow as long as they bring back Maks for her.

 

I don't believe she has much of a US following so thankfully won't replicate the long runs that some past trainwrecks have had.

That would be a hilarious/messy partnership! :haha:

 

Yeah I think it’s probably more one-sided and I’d be surprised if they would reach out to her. But yeah couldn’t see her lasting long.

You never know - Katherine Jenkins, whilst more of a celeb than The GC, was not at all known in the US and still got on.

 

GC seems like she would be Kate Gosselin 2.0. I always wanted to see Maks with Kate (poor Tony was too nice and didn't deserve her) so I'd be very intrigued by the idea of a Gemma & Maks pairing.

Katherine Jenkins was a musical guest for season 12's Classical Night, two seasons before she competed and she was very likable, a great dancer, and paired with Mark Ballas.  I can't see the American public taking to Gemma if she's anything like she was on Dancing on Ice, no matter who was her partner (I would love to see Gleb have to deal with her though because he's sadly not going away any time soon).

Reposting from the rankdown thread..ABC have confirmed in a statement that Erin will also not be returning.

 

“Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing with the Stars family. As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success. Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show."

Maybe they liked what they saw when Nick & Vanessa hosted Love is Blind together so they wanted them to host together for this lol. 

 

In all seriousness tho, I would bet almost anything that they go with a POC for Tom's replacement.  Alfonso seems like the obvious answer.  maybe Jordan since he hosted Juniors.   If it doesn't have to be an alum then maybe they'll pick Michael Strahan or Anthony Anderson since they're already with ABC.
