FORMER Bachelorettes Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams are upset they’ve been cast aside as Jesse Palmer prepares to host the upcoming season of The Bachelorette.
season 19 starts July 11th and Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia will be the show’s first co-stars.
Fans learned that Jesse, 43, will take over as host from Kaitlyn, 36, and Tayshia, 31, after presenting The Bachelor’s dramatic 26th season.
A source close to the production told The Sun: “I don’t think either of them were happy with how they were thrown aside and Tayshia seems to have been the whole show.”
The former contestants were fan favorites when they took over Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette.
Many viewers described the dynamic between the duo, particularly with Katie, 30, as “fun and refreshing”.
However, the previous hosts are unlikely to be returning to screens any time soon.
The insider said: “Tayshia and Kaitlyn have no plans to return to the host anytime soon. Kaitlyn is still committed to the franchise, but Tayshia seems completely screwed.”
Show executives are reportedly “borderline obsessed” with Jesse, who will be hosting “The Bachelorette” for the first time when the new season premieres on July 11.
The Bachelor was revised after longtime host Chris Harrison, 50, was fired from the show.
Jesse himself was previously a contestant on The Bachelor season five.
The source said that Jesse “is exactly who they are [executives] were looking for a host…an unproblematic Chris Harrison type.”
Tayshia hasn’t been involved with the franchise since hosting Michelle Young’s season with Kaitlyn.
During the Men Tell All episode, she broke down in tears when asked by her co-host about her breakup with then-fiancé Zac Clark.
Before leaving the set, she said, “I just have to say my heart is broken but we tried really hard and I still love him dearly and I’m not sure what the future holds.”
On the other hand, Kaitlyn revealed on the Off The Vine podcast this week that she’s “sad” not to be the host but that new host Jesse has her full support.
“I think Jesse is amazing,” she said.
“He will be a great host and I hope he helps Gabby and Rachel in any way he can.”
However, with Gabby and Rachel’s season set to begin filming this week, the show is reportedly “chaotic and disorganized.”
Jesse announced in Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor finale, “For the first time, we’re going to have two Bachelorettes for the entire season.”
Both Gabby and Rachel were Clayton’s last two picks on his shocking season of The Bachelor.
However, the insider revealed, “There was chaos behind the scenes.”
They added, “Execs went with the two Bachelorette leads on impulse because the reaction to both women and their friendship was so strong, but also because they needed to shake up the franchise after the past few years of turmoil.”
However, the folks behind the successful franchise have yet to figure out what it’s like to have two Bachelorettes.
“There is no final process yet on how they will deal with the two leads.
“Certain producers, however, feed off of that uncertainty because they know the messier it is, the better the drama will be for that season.”
The chaos that ensued during filming could put pressure on Gabby and Rachel’s friendship.
“They don’t even care if Gabby and Rachel end up hating each other. They just want a good show and better ratings.”
