If you ever wondered why Kaitlyn Bristowe didn't go on Dancing With The Stars after The Bachelorette, now, you just might have your answer! This week, Kaitlyn called out Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss for not letting her go on DWTS, and her accusations are pretty serious. Drama!


After it became official that Nick Viall is headed to DWTS next season (yay!), it was pretty clear Kaitlyn was upset about something on Twitter. A few cryptic tweets later, we finally got our answer: Nick was allowed to do the show but Kaitlyn wasn't, and homegirl is not taking this one lying down. 

In response to a tweet from former Bach contestant Whitney Bischoff, Kaitlyn explained exactly why we didn't see her competing for that mirror ball trophy a couple of seasons ago -- something we've always wondered about, considering she's a professional dancer and all. 

She tweeted:

Wait, what?! Sounds like a pretty unfair double standard to us, and now that we think about it, the last Bachelorette star to join DWTS was Melissa Rycroft, whose season aired forever ago. Now, Nick will be the third Bachelor from recent seasons to appear on the show, joining Chris Soules and Sean Lowe. 

And when Mike responded to her tweet, our girl brought the sass, as per usual.

If everything Kaitlyn is saying is true, we can't blame her for being royally pissed off. DWTS would have been an awesome opportunity, and we hate that she missed out on it -- especially since, considering her background, it seems like something she really would have enjoyed and excelled at.

Watch out, Bachelor nation. We're keeping our eye on you. If Rachel Lindsay wants a shot at that trophy after The Bachelorette, we better see her on the show the following season!
