During the video chat, Harrison invited Tartick to join the conversation. Bristowe (who used to be a professional dancer) was shocked when she realized that Tartick might be in on the host’s surprise.
After revealing he’s an “ordained minister,” Harrison added, “In all seriousness, I do have a very real question for you, Kaitlyn. This is a question I’m so excited to ask you because, well, your life is about to change.”
“What?!” Bristowe asked before turning to Tartick. “Do you know about this?”
Finally, Harrison spilled the beans: “Kaitlyn, will you be on the next season of Dancing with the Stars?”
In typical Bristowe fashion, she rambled on about the honor before answering, “Yes!” “I feel like this is back to the moment where you told me I was the Bachelorette,” she said. “That is the last thing in the world I thought you were going to say. I thought you were going to ask me to take over your job…I don’t know.”
After Hannah Brown’s win on season 28 of Dancing with the Stars, Bristowe has some big dancing shoes to fill.
