The Bachelorette alum Kaitlyn Bristowe has clapped back at haters criticizing how her appearance has changed since she starred on the show's eleventh season back in 2015.
Kaitlyn, who currently co-hosts The Bachelorette's seventeenth season with Tayshia Adams, has responded to trolls on social media claiming she looks so "different" than when she first found fame on Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor and subsequently starred as the Bachelorette.
One Twitter user wrote, "Can anyone tell me what's different about [Kaitlyn]'s look? I can't put my finger on it #TheBachelorette."
Kaitlyn, 35, replied on Thursday, "[Six] years since I was on the show, Brow lift, brow micro blading, got my teeth bonded, some filler In my lips, aging, darker hair, and I finally learned how to contour."
"Oh and I put on some weight," Kaitlyn added.
And by a "brow lift," Kaitlyn clarified how she "never went under the knife."
"I just got Botox to life the brows, yeah," Kaitlyn noted.
Another person commented, "Bah god [Kaitlyn]'s face is BUSTED. #TheBachelorette."
And Kaitlyn tweeted in reply, "So sick of women commenting on my face. Jesus."
While Kaitlyn has received her fair share of criticism from The Bachelor viewers, she still has many loyal fans backing her up.
One Twitter user acknowledged how it's unrealistic to expect a woman "to stay looking exactly the way she did 7 years ago," adding, "This is the reason women are so god damn hard on themselves," Us Weekly reported.
Jason proposed to Kaitlyn in Nashville, TN, one May afternoon while the pair was recording an episode of Kaitlyn's Off the Vine podcast. Kaitlyn has said she was so surprised and didn't see the proposal coming at all.
"It was so beautiful. Everything he said was perfect and I'm so glad we have it recorded because I definitely blacked out and so did he," Kaitlyn gushed on Bachelor Happy Hour.
Kaitlyn first met Jason while taping an episode of her Off the Vine podcast in October 2018, and he took her out on their first date in January 2019.
Jason, originally from Buffalo, NY, moved from his place in Seattle, WA, to live with Kaitlyn in Nashville in June 2019. The couple has since adopted two dogs together.
