Kaitlyn Bristowe's Addition to 'Dancing with the Stars' Cast Is Basically Confirmed

Wondering what's up next for Kaitlyn Bristowe, now that The Bachelorette is over and she has found true love with Shawn Booth? If you ask DWTS's Witney Carson, Bristowe is going to be a great Dancing with the Stars contestant — her latest interview has us convinced the reality TV star is going to appear on the show.


Pro-dancer Carson, 21, who earned an Emmy nomination for her incredible work with DWTS contestant Alfonso Ribeiro, told Wetpaint she is rooting for Bristowe to join the Season 21 cast and feels she should follow in Chris Soules's footsteps and blow everyone away with her dance moves. To be fair, Bristowe is a dancer herself, so she certainly has a leg up on her competition if she decides to give the show a go, and she has already expressed interest in signing on if the timing is right.

Here's what Carson had to say about her:

I think she would be a good contestant! She said she was a dancer, so I assume she has some coordination, so that would be good, and I think she has a great personality. We all know the show's not only about dancing, it's about how you connect with the audience, and I think she'd be really good for the show. She's relevant, she's fun, and she's coordinated. So I think she'd be great.

Absolutely — Bristowe would be perfect.

But will she do it? The 30-year-old has said in the past that she wouldn't join the cast if it meant having to be away from Booth for a long time. She vowed she would put her relationship ahead of an opportunity like this one. I have to admit: I don't get it. I'm sure their rehearsal schedule is grueling and filming is intense, but it's temporary. Surely a strong and solid relationship can survive DWTS?
