Bachelor Nation favorite Kaitlyn Bristowe has been watching Bachelor in Paradise, and she reveals which season 8 couples she is rooting for.
Former The Bachelorette star and host Kaitlyn Bristowe is a Bachelor in Paradise fan, and she shared which season 8 couples she hopes will continue on their path to love. Kaitlyn became the Bachelorette in 2015, after appearing on Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor. She is now engaged to Jason Tartick, who made it to Becca Kufrin’s final three on The Bachelorette in 2018. Kaitlyn and Jason met in 2019 when he was a guest on her Off the Vine podcast and asked her out on a date. They are currently planning their wedding.
In an interview with Extra, Kaitlyn revealed that she has been watching Bachelor in Paradise season 8, and there are two couples that she would like to see go the distance. She said that she found the beginning of the season to be boring, stating, “I’m not gonna lie. It was a bit of a snoozefest to start.” However, she is excited that “we’re getting into the whirlwind right now.” Kaitlyn shared that she is “rooting” for Danielle Maltby and Michael Allio, saying, “They both deserve happiness.” Danielle and Michael are both dealing with dating after tragedy as they navigate their grief. Danielle lost her fiancé Nick to a drug overdose in 2011, while Michael’s wife Laura died of breast cancer in 2019.
Kaitlyn Thinks The Bachelor Franchise Will Last A Long Time
Kaitlyn is also hoping that another Bachelor in Paradise couple lasts: Brandon Jones and Serene Russell. She said, “They have such a sweet connection.” Brandon and Serene felt instant chemistry when they met on the beach. They admitted that they were falling in love with each other on their one-on-one date. Kaitlyn hopes these couples last forever, but how much longer does she think the Bachelor franchise will continue? “I don’t know if there’s any end in sight to the Bachelor franchise,” she said. “There’s a reason it’s been on for this many seasons. I can only hope personally they continue to evolve.”
Kaitlyn’s choices for her favorite Bachelor in Paradise couples reflect the opinions of many Bachelor Nation fans. Danielle and Michael and Serene and Brandon seem to have pure intentions and really want to find lasting love. As the host of both Katie Thurston and Michelle Young’s seasons of The Bachelorette, she was able to get to know both Michael and Brandon, so she has even further insight into their relationships than the average viewer.
As Bachelor in Paradise season 8 heads toward its November season finale, there are sure to be many more twists and turns that will test the couples. However, Danielle and Michael and Serene and Brandon seem solid enough to weather any storm. Kaitlyn has chosen two couples who certainly have the potential to find lasting love. They might even follow in her and Jason’s footsteps and begin their next chapters with engagements.
Bachelor In Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
