She further mentioned that she was unaware that she was under contract and therefore she needed permission. Kaitlyn Bristowe recalled the time when she was quite excited to get to be on another show; however, the producers for The Bachelorette reminded her that she was under contract. Thus the makers had asked her to focus on her relationship on The Bachelorette.

Kaitlyn Bristowe continued that she felt it was quite an experience for her and she felt quite sad about it. She added that she did not realise it at the time but she now feels it was for the best that she did not do the show back then. She justified by saying that she had just gotten engaged on The Bachelorette and thus jumping from one show to another would’ve been stressful for her. Therefore, Kaitlyn Bristowe maintained the fact that it was best for her that she focused on her relationship rather than simply going away to do another TV show.
