Dancing In DWTS Season 29 – A “YES” For Kaitlyn Bristowe And A “NO” For Olivia Newton John

Wow, never did we expect this news so soon. According to ET Online, Kaitlyn Bristowe is dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars.

Kaitlyn Bristowe’s dancing dreams are coming true! The former Bachelorette got quite the surprise on Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! when Chris Harrison told her she’d be competing on the upcoming 29th season of Dancing With the Stars.

The news comes three years after Bristowe claimed that she was offered a contract for DWTS, but was blocked from appearing on the show at the last minute by Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss, who allegedly “said he didn’t want people wanting fame after his show.” Bristowe was visibly shocked on Monday night when she found out she’d finally get her shot at the mirrorball trophy.

More at ET Online. However. it’s a “no” for Olivia Newton John. Dang, I would love to see her dance on the show. More in the video below and at ET!

ETA: I saw the part with Chris Harrison asking Kaitlyn last night when I was already in bed – corny. Here’s a bit of it, along with the piece from GMA this morning, thanks to Linz on twitter. She’s SOL on the Derek thing, not that I blame her. 🙂 ~Heidi

ETA 2: Court here, just adding some links to previous posts we’ve done about Kaitlyn with regards to DWTS – one about her Twitter rant exposing Mike Fleiss for not letting her do DWTS back in 2015, and one conspiracy theory about how she might have played a role in the season 21 cast shakeup.
