The Bachelorette alum Kaitlyn Bristowe has continued slamming Season 19's dual Bachelorettes format, saying she absolutely can't stand watching Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia share The Bachelorette's leading role.

The Bachelorette's nineteenth season is currently underway, and Kaitlyn -- who starred on the show's eleventh season and co-hosted Season 17 and Season 18 alongside Tayshia Adams -- ranted and raved on Twitter as Episode 2 aired Monday night on ABC.


"I f-ckkkkin hate this," the 37-year-old "Off the Vine" podcast host tweeted.

Kaitlyn began venting her frustrations when Gabby and Rachel were on their first group-date afterparty.

Jason Alabaster was shown telling Rachel that he was only interested in dating Gabby, and then Rachel watched another one of her initial love interests, Johnny DePhillipo, make out with Gabby in another room.

The 26-year-old flight instructor lamented to cameras how she wasn't sure where she stood, adding, "I'm still trying to find my footing. It definitely wasn't going the way I expected it to... [There] was small talk you could have with your cousin."

The evening took a turn for the better once Logan Palmer complimented Rachel for being "brave" and kissed her, but then he found Gabby and kissed the 31-year-old ICU nurse as well.

"Am I being dramatic?? I cannot believe they are doing this to these women, and to the men. #TheBachelorette," Kaitlyn tweeted.

When Rachel and Gabby reunited after their individual conversations with Logan, Rachel told Gabby about how she liked Logan and he had kissed her. Gabby, having felt a connection with Logan as well, decided she didn't want to step on her friend's toes.

Gabby therefore didn't appear to tell Rachel about her own kiss with Logan. Instead, Gabby explained in a confessional how she wanted Rachel to explore that romance fully.

"Why do I feel like Gabby told Rachel she kissed him too, and they edited it out #TheBachelorette," Kaitlyn wrote on Twitter.

Kaitlyn also later tweeted that Rachel deserves the world.


Kaitlyn said on People's "Every Day" podcast earlier this month that she was upset upon hearing ABC was going to have two The Bachelorette stars again.

"At first I was like, 'No, please don't do this again. I thought we learned our lesson the first time -- nobody liked having two Bachelorettes the last time.' It felt like we were pitted against each other," Kaitlyn said.

She said while watching The Bachelorette's Season 19 premiere on July 11 that she was thinking, "Why are we doing this again?... I thought they both deserve their own season."

Kaitlyn said ABC did not set the women up for success by having them date the same 32 guys.

Kaitlyn apparently felt "triggered" right from the start, when ABC announced in March that both Gabby and Rachel would lead the same season.

The announcement apparently brought back bad memories for Kaitlyn, who had to face off against Britt Nilsson for The Bachelorette role on Season 11 in 2015 after both women also competed to win Chris Soules' heart on The Bachelor 19.

On The Bachelorette's eleventh-season premiere, the Night 1 men only had several hours to talk to both Kaitlyn and Britt and get to know them, and by the end of the evening, the bachelors had to vote for which woman they'd like to continue dating.

The votes ultimately carried for Kaitlyn, who proceeded to star on the rest of the season and get engaged to Shawn Booth in the finale, and Britt was forced to go home immediately on the first night of filming.

While Kaitlyn apparently can't stand two women sharing one The Bachelorette season, Rachel and Gabby have insisted in recent interviews they wouldn't have had it any other way.


"We try to talk about how it's been done before with just one, because I just can't imagine doing it without her," Rachel told Variety in a recent joint interview with Gabby.

And Gabby confirmed, "We talk about it a lot... how could we have possibly done it alone? A lot of times, the only person you have to lean on is yourself... Having someone going through the same thing alongside you, it's quite validating to your feelings."

"And I don't think we would've felt as empowered leaving without each other," Gabby added. "Having Rachel by my side made it that much more secure in a very tumultuous environment."

Rachel also said that she truly valued Gabby's advice throughout the process.

"I would always be so excited to be able to have that conversation with Gabby because she would always be honest with me. She has my best interest in mind. To be able to have each other, it was really helpful," Rachel shared.

Considering both Rachel and Gabby got strung and were both brutally dumped at the same exact time on Clayton Echard's season of The Bachelor, which aired earlier this year, Rachel also reasoned, "How could they have chosen one [of us]?"

"We did go through this crazy experience multiple times together, so I don't think it even would've felt right for one or the other to be on their own," Rachel said.

The girls also insisted they had individual journeys to find love and never competed against each other or had any cat fights.

"There is drama that comes with the show -- but not with us," Rachel noted.

Gabby added, "Because we're such good friends and we wouldn't want anything to jeopardize it, all it takes is communication. And women are good at that. We were always honest with each other and never hid anything. There were no secrets... Unfortunately, probably not the drama that people expected."

Rachel and Gabby believe they were in control of their season, and they said they were both "extremely happy" in the end with "no regrets."

"Of course we're going to kiss some of the same guys. Of course we're going to have some similar interests. That's just normal," Gabby told Glamour in a separate interview, adding how love can be messy.

"The journey gets more complicated and deeper... You'll see us on dates together, separately, all kinds of stuff. It was obviously well worth it. You'll see us really supporting each other and watching us grow, as friends and as women during this experience."
