Since a Bachelor has never won the show before, Kaitlyn explained, "The whole argument of Bachelor Nation being really loyal and always voting for their Bachelors and Bachelorettes doesn't stand true."
Kaitlyn elaborated, "[Pro dancer] Cheryl Burke, who is actually one of my closest friends out of it, was like, 'Well, we can't have another Bachelorette on because they'll just win because of Bachelor Nation.' And I'm like well, 'Chris Soules didn't win, Nick Viall didn't win, Sean Lowe didn't win.' They're all Bachelor people."
