The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe Joins Cast of 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 29

Kaitlyn Bristowe has been announced as the first member of the cast of Dancing With the Stars season 29!

The news was revealed while Kaitlyn gave an update on her life during her episode of The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons Ever, a new series that recaps the best seasons of the franchise.

Kaitlyn was the star of The Bachelorette in 2015 and she got engaged to Shawn Booth during the season finale. They were together until 2018 and she is now in a relationship with Jason Tartick, who was a contestant on The Bachelorette in 2018.

Host Chris Harrison surprised Kaitlyn with the news during the current update on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons Ever.

“I feel like this is back to the moment where you told me I was the Bachelorette. That is the last thing in the world I thought you were going to say. I thought you were going to ask me to take over your job … I don’t know,” she said while reacting to the news. “Yes yes! I’m so honored to say yes.”

Back in December, the names of some other celebrities being eyed for the upcoming season were revealed.
