How has your time as The Bachelorette gone so far?
Things are going so well! I have done some amazing, crazy things, and the guys are great.
Were you surprised to be asked to be the new Bachelorette?
We had been talking about it for a while, just kind of gauging whether I was fully ready. As things progressed, I knew that I wanted to do it. I went into (The Bachelor) wanting to find love and find my partner. Obviously, it didnt work out with Arie (Luyendyk Jr.), but things have never changed for me … so when I was offered this, it was a hard yes all around.
