A brand new period for Bachelor Nation has arrived.
We’ve got now formally seen the first premiere in franchise historical past with out Chris Harrison because the host, and we should not be shocked that it was actually fantastic—and “fantastic” isn’t a phrase we regularly affiliate with something Bachelor. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams felt like outdated associates at a flowery sleepover, serving to their single pal Katie Thurston swipe on Tinder IRL. They hyped her up, they provided commentary and so they spied by a window with popcorn in hand, providing their opinions on guys with vans. (They like them, for the file.)
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 an alternative of a darkish undercurrent of actuality TV machinations, there was enjoyable, laughter—and a way that possibly all people is right here to have a great time.
Kaitlyn and Tayshia have been contestants and leads earlier than, and so they’re presently each in glad, engaged Bachelor Nation relationships. They’re the right option to shepherd a brand new lead by her personal journey to seek out TV love, and bringing them on feels like a no brainer. It simply actually sucks to recollect how we acquired right here, and that it wasn’t truly a no brainer in any respect.
