Kaitlyn Bristowe is still down to do Dancing With the Stars.
“Dancing is, honestly, it's a passion of mine,” Bristowe tells ET. “I've never done ballroom dancing, so that would be very new to me.”
alum called out Bachelor boss Mike Fleiss earlier this year
, saying he told her she couldn’t join the ABC competition after she finished her season of The Bachelorette
back in 2015. Bristowe claimed there was a double standard for the show: Bachelor
stars, including Nick Viall, were allowed to do it, but Bachelorette
stars were not.
"I believe men and women should be afforded the same opportunities," she told ET in March. "I was told by Mike that it is bad for his brand, and that he is sick of people wanting fame from his show."
Still, Bristowe says if ABC came to her tomorrow with an offer to join the next season, she’d immediately say yes.
“I think [my fiance] Shawn and I are in such a good place, too, that it wouldn't be like, we're jumpin' the gun and getting into another show,” she says. “I think he'd be so supportive and I think it'd be fun, but I also don't think they'll do that.”
Instead, Bristowe predicts the current Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay, will join season 25 of DWTS.
“I think that, because I stirred up a little bit of controversy and it got some backlash towards whoever, I think for sure, she'll go and do Dancing With the Stars now,” she says. “Just so they can be like, 'See! No, no, no. We do it for The Bachelorettes, too! See! We just did it!'”
ET caught up with Bristowe behind the scenes of her PodcastOne show, Off the Vine
. Her next episode, featuring special guests Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, drops Tuesday. On the episode, the Hills
couple tries to convince Bristowe to do more reality TV.
“I think if you're a strong enough couple, you can do it,” Bristowe shares. “They've obviously made it through and that's so impressive to me. I'm really happy podcasting right now. I don't know. I don't rule anything out. But, I'm pretty happy podcasting.”
