The announcement was shared on the @bacheloretteabc Instagram account, where they stated, "Chris Harrison will not be hosting the next season of 'The Bachelorette'...In his absence, former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will support the new Bachelorette through next season."
Adams seemed just as thrilled about the news when she shared an Instagram post last night, with lyrics that read: "Sunshine is gonna come now / Rain down, all over you / Good times are gonna come now, look 'round / Baby it's true."
There's no denying that Adams and Bristowe are certainly fit for the job. Adams was a former contestant on The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise, before replacing Clare Crawley on season 16 of The Bachelorette (where she chose her current fiancé, Zac Clark). Meanwhile, Bristowe was also a contestant on The Bachelor, as well as the lead of season 11 of The Bachelorette, before guest-starring on the 29th season of Dancing with the Stars.
Along with naming the hosts, ABC Entertainment and Warner Horizon responded to the controversy surrounding a comment Harrison made, saying: "We are dedicated to improving the BIPOC representation of our crew, including among the executive producer ranks. These are important steps in effecting fundamental change so that our franchise is a celebration of love that is reflective of our world."
According to blogger Reality Steve, the 17th season of The Bachelorette will be filming just outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico later this month.
You go, girls!
