It’s official: ABC will reveal The Bachelorette 2015 star’s identity during The Bachelor finale airing on Monday, March 9. This is exactly when most figured the decision would be revealed, and now show creator Mike Fleiss has confirmed it. Many reports have indicated that Chris Soules’ cast-off Kaitlyn Bristowe would be the one handing out roses, and more evidence pointing in that direction seems to be adding up.
Fleiss tweeted the confirmation that the announcement would be made during Chris Soules’ Bachelor finale airing on March 9. Though Fleiss has been teasing that the decision was a hard one they were struggling to make, several sources have already reportedly confirmed the Bachelorette spoilers that Kaitlyn Bristowe has closed the deal.
It has been teased for a while now that it was essentially down to Kaitlyn and fellow Bachelor 2015 bachelorette Britt Nilsson for the gig. Though many had favored Britt all season, the tide seemingly turned over the past few episodes of Chris Soules’ season. The “Women Tell All” definitely appeared to lay the groundwork for Kaitlyn to become the frontrunner.
Though both Britt and Kaitlyn have seemed open to becoming the Bachelorette 2015 lead, it’s Bristowe’s latest moves that seem to confirm the network’s decision. She’s been on Good Morning America, she’s doing photo shoots that point in that direction, and a recent Instagram post definitely has fans speculating.
Bristowe posted a quote that says, “If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new ‘hello.'”
Kaitlyn added, “Never been good at goodbyes. Just keep telling myself when one door closes, another one opens. #quotesarecheesybutsotrue”
Given that the decision on the Bachelorette 2015 gig would have just been finalized over the past few days, the timing of Kaitlyn’s post most definitely seems to add to the speculation that she’s going to be handing out roses this spring.
Britt’s fans are still campaigning for Nilsson to get the gig, but many think it’s definitely a done deal at this point. A great deal will be revealed in the days ahead, as it’s also reportedly a done deal that Chris Soules will be the DWTS mystery contestant on Season 20 debuting on March 16.
Will you tune in to watch Kaitlyn Bristowe as The Bachelorette 2015 star? Will Chris Soules choose Whitney Bischoff or Becca Tilley, and will the couple land in Los Angeles for a bit for Season 20 of Dancing with the Stars?
