Kaitlyn Bristowe is gaining support to become the next Bachelorette contestant, with rumors picking up that her loss of Chris Soules could turn into a much bigger gain.
Bristowe suffered a shocking elimination after her date with Chris in Bali, with the Bachelor contestant saying it was a very difficult decision to send her home.
But in the wake of her elimination, rumors began circulating that ABC was picking Bristowe as the next lead in the Bachelorette. Those reports picked up steam when Bristowe made a trip to Los Angeles, with her Twitter posts revealing that she was with a film crew.
Kaitlyn didn’t reveal the project, but many speculate that she was filming some initial work for the 2015 season of The Bachelorette.
Insider Reality Steve, who has correctly picked the winner of nearly every Bachelor and Bachelorette season, reported that filming for the next Bachelorette season would begin either Tuesday or Wednesday, just after the official announcement. But it’s also likely that producers would film some preliminary material, including the next contestant’s introduction, so Kaitlyn’s trip to Los Angeles could be a big hint.
Other contestants eliminated by Chris Soules are behind Kaitlyn Bristowe to become the next Bachelorette. Ashley Iaconetti even took to Twitter to support her friend.

Fellow contestant Becca Tilley retweeted the words of support.
Kaitlyn Bristowe is now getting more support to become the next Bachelorette contestant. Scandal star Joshua Malina, who calls himself a big fan of the show, recently spoke up in support of Bristowe.
“I don’t care much for [Whitney or Becca],” the 49-year-old actor said at PaleyFest in Los Angeles this weekend.
Malina said if ABC were to pick Bristowe as the next Bachelorette, “she’ll be great.”
“You want to marry off somebody who isn’t that interesting, so either [Whitney or Becca] is fine, and you want somebody who is really interesting as the next Bachelorette. So, maybe everything is working out as it should,” he said.
If Kaitlyn Bristowe is the next Bachelorette contestant, ABC isnt’t revealing anything just yet. Last week producer Mike Fleiss took to Twitter to assure fans that they still hadn’t made a decision, despite only a few days to the announcement at the Bachelor finale.
