Kaitlyn Bristowe Reveals Her Hair Fell Out From Being on ‘Bachelorette’!
The Season 11 star is opening up about the experience nearly two years later, and not only does she reveal some gripes with the producers, but also the (seriously frightening) physical toll it took on her body.
Talking about the producers, she admitted things started off positively, as she even grew close to the crew during filming. Unfortunately, that later changed.
“You get really close to them,” she admitted. “You almost confide in them, and you're a little naïve because you don't have anyone else.”
Though she knows “they’re doing their jobs,” what happened after the show affected their relationships.
She explained, “You trust them, and then once you watch the show back, you're like, ‘Oh, I don't trust you.’”
Luckily, she did have another outlet in which to express her feelings during the difficult process: an on-set therapist.
“There's a therapist for the show,” she explained. “It's really stressful for a person who just gets thrown into that overnight.”
No kidding — in fact, the 31-year-old was so stressed during her experience, she lost her hair!
OK, obviously not all of it, but still, pretty alarming.
“I lost hair [throughout the season], like chunks!" she shared. “I had a bald spot at the back of my head from stress.”
Yikes! And it sounds like the added pressure about her looks didn’t help.
“When I was the Bachelorette, they were like, 'Tone down the lips!' I was like, 'Damn!’” she recalled.
She added, “I know they wanted me to take out my nose ring too, which you can barely see.”
“It was worth it,” she gushed. "Obviously I found the love of my life out of it."
All’s well that ends well, right?
