Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will return to host the upcoming season of The Bachelorette.
ABC confirmed Monday that Adams, 30, and Bristowe, 36, will host Season 18 of the truth relationship competitors series starring Michelle Younger.
“We love queens supporting our queens! @tayshia and @kaitlynbristowe are returning to host #TheBachelorette this Fall!” the community tweeted.
Adams and Bristowe are at present internet hosting The Bachelorette Season 17 starring Katie Thurston. The season premiered in June and airs Mondays on ABC.
Adams and Bristowe took over internet hosting duties from longtime Bachelor host Chris Harrison, who exited the franchise in June. Harrison had stepped away in February after “talking in a method that perpetuates racism” in an interview with former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Additional.
Within the interview, Harrison defended Bachelor Season 25 contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, who later apologized for “offensive and racist” previous actions. Harrison apologized on Twitter in February and once more in an interview on Good Morning America in March.
Adams was a contestant in Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor and later appeared in Bachelor in Paradise Season 6. Bristowe competed in Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor and later starred in The Bachelorette Season 11.
