Kaitlyn Bristowe Spills Secrets From 'The Bachelorette' That We Can't Believe

Kaitlyn Bristowe

As much fun as it looks to move into the Bachelor mansion and hang out at that pool for a season, we can't deny that it also seems really stressful, and one former contestant (and Bachelorette star) is verifying that for us. During a recent interview, Kaitlyn Bristowe revealed secrets from her time in Bachelor nation, and it doesn't sound all fun. In fact, some of it sounds downright awful. 


And of all the things Kaitlyn revealed, one of the most shocking was something that happened while she was filming her season of The Bachelorette. While talking to Entertainment Tonight, Kaitlyn admitted that at times, she was so stressed out that she began losing "chunks" of her hair, and it left her with a bald spot. Poor Kait! 

Another secret she shared? Those friendships she thought she was forming with producers weren't really friendships at all. She told the show: 

You get really close to them. You almost confide in them, and you're a little naïve because you don't have anyone else. You trust them, and then once you watch the show back, you're like, 'Oh, I don't trust you.'

Sounds like a nightmare to us!

Kaitlyn also revealed that the lights in the mansion are actually stage lights, and they stay on all the time, except in the bedrooms when the women go to sleep. And although the process is very stressful, there is a therapist on site to help the contestants deal with such an unusual life situation. 

But even though it sounds like it was definitely a challenge for Kaitlyn, she doesn't regret it one bit, and for one very important reason: her fiancé, Shawn Booth. 

"It was worth it," she added. "Obviously I found the love of my life out of it." 

And they lived happily ever after? We hope so. Fingers crossed that wedding is coming soon!
