Bristowe is already enjoying a lot of popularity, as she was recently chosen as the latest Bachelorette — after a pool of 25 guys voted between her and Britt Nilsson to become the show's leading lady. However, according to Radar Online, she's been in a relationship with a guy for more than a year.
The man in question is firefighter Trevor Partlo, who lives in Vancouver, Canada. And when Bristowe was one of the top three contestants vying for the heart of The Bachelor Chris Soules, she was reportedly still dating Partlo.
"She loves being in the spotlight, and Trevor knows it," a friend reportedly told Star magazine, via Radar Online. "When she signed on to The Bachelor, Trevor told me, 'She's just doing it to get famous. It doesn't mean anything. She'll come back, and it'll be life as normal.'"
If this claim is true, it's pretty shocking to imagine Bristowe's poor boyfriend sitting at home while she tries to further her career, especially because things tend to get pretty heated on the hit ABC dating show. The source even claimed that Bristowe had been "intimate" with Soules.
"I know Kaitlyn has told Trevor in the past that she loves him. She's a free spirit, but she can also be very manipulative," the source continued. "And I have no doubt that actually finding a husband on The Bachelorette will be the last thing on her mind."
Is becoming a star on reality TV really more important to Bristowe than finding true love? We hope not, because we're pretty sure that Britt would have loved the chance to actually find her perfect man.
