Fans of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are likely very familiar with Kaitlyn Bristowe who got her start on both of the shows and is now an internet icon. She has 1.7 million followings on Instagram, her own podcast, a long term relationship, and an adorable dog. Both shows ended four years ago and now The Bachelor's Kaitlyn Bristowe is an incredibly successful entrepreneur and social media influencer.

The 34-year-old was born in Leduc, Alberta and moved to Vancouver, BC when she was an adult to pursue a dance scholarship.

Bristowe was a bachelorette on season 11 where she ended up getting engaged to Shawn Booth, but they called it quits after three years. Before that, she placed third on season 19 where Chris Soules was the bachelor. 

If you just can't get enough of Bristowe's wild sense of humour, you should definitely be listening to her podcastOff The Vine, where she has special guests and talks about hilarious and embarrassing stories from her personal life. 

The podcast is so successful that she took it on tour to cities including Seattle, Los Angeles, Portland, and Dallas. One of her stops also brought her back home to Vancouver, where she shared the love on Instagram. 

The KB Fall Crawl Tour featured her and special guests in each city drinking wine, dancing, and dishing the best secrets.

The liquor she drank? No other than her own line of wine called Spade and Sparrows. 

Bristowe launched the company this past May and according to the website, she "hand-selected each wine with your tastebuds, nights-out, and (most importantly) nights-in in mind."

The Canadian star also hopped on the scrunchie trend and started a line called Dew Edit in 2018. She sells barrettes and headbands, and scrunchies in every colour you can think of. 

This next fact might surprise you but the former The Bachelorette star spent some time on Broadway in 2017, performing at a theatre in Manhattan. The show was called Home For the Holidays, Live on Broadway.

In June 2019, Fame 10 reported that Bristowe's net worth is $3.5 million so she's certainly doing well. 

Bristowe just completed her podcast tour and is back home with boyfriend Jason Tartick and their dog, Ramen Noodle Vino nicknamed "Noods".
