Chris Harrison has been replaced as the Bachelor nation host by former “Bachelorettes” Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams, the latter saying Harrison has already reached out to wish her well.
“I feel so honored to be given the opportunity but I’m just so, so, so happy,” Adams said in a series of Instagram videos Saturday. “And I’m so happy that you guys are happy. I’ve been getting so many phenomenal messages and words of encouragement; it means so much. And the fact that I talked to Chris the other day and he was so kind and congratulated me for being part of the next season meant the absolute world.”
“So with that being said, y’all, let’s freakin’ go! Bachelorette 17, your girl’s here, baby,” she concluded.
For her part, Bristowe shared black and white footage of herself with Adams downing wine and dancing in celebration of their new gig.
