Kaitlyn Bristowe defends Clayton Echard after fantasy suites 

The Bachelor viewers were already not thrilled when Clayton Echard was announced as the next lead, as they found him dull and preferred a more likable candidate such as Rodney Mathews. 

Then Clayton really upset viewers with his conduct during fantasy suites. He told all three women he loved them and acted harshly when Susie took an issue with him declaring his love to three women and sleeping with Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia. 

Most online opinions appeared to be against Clayton; however, Kaitlyn seemed to empathize with the former football player. 

Amid the backlash, Kaitlyn took to her Instagram stories to share her controversial take based on the personal insight she gained after being a lead on The Bachelorette. 

Kaitlyn shared, ”When you’re in that position, you are making a life-altering decision,” adding, “You genuinely fall in love with more [than one] person, so why would you not be intimate with more than one person when you’re trying to find the person to spend the rest of your life with?”

Kaitlyn questioned why people were judging Clayton so harshly and put some responsibility on the women to establish their boundaries upfront. 

The former co-host of The Bachelorette stated, ”These women should have had that conversation before the fantasy suite, like, ‘Hey, this is either OK with me, or it’s not.’ And if you’ve set those boundaries, then that’s a much different story.”

The Bachelor is currently on hiatus on ABC.
