A brand new period for Bachelor Nation has arrived.
We now have now formally seen the primary premiere in franchise historical past with out Chris Harrison because the host, and we should not be shocked that it was actually great—and “great” is just not a phrase we regularly affiliate with something Bachelor. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams felt like previous buddies at a flowery sleepover, serving to their single pal Katie Thurston swipe on Tinder IRL. They hyped her up, they supplied commentary and so they spied via a window with popcorn in hand, providing their opinions on guys with vehicles. (They like them, for the report.)
It was a lot enjoyable, and it made the present really feel extra joyful than it has in a very long time, if ever. As a substitute of a darkish undercurrent of actuality TV machinations, there was enjoyable, laughter—and a way that possibly everyone is right here to have an excellent time.
Kaitlyn and Tayshia have been contestants and leads earlier than, and so they’re at present each in completely satisfied, engaged Bachelor Nation relationships. They’re the right option to shepherd a brand new lead via her personal journey to search out TV love, and bringing them on feels like a no brainer. It simply actually sucks to recollect how we received right here, and that it wasn’t really a no brainer in any respect.
