Bachelor host Chris Harrison surprised Bristowe with the news during the Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons -- Ever! special. The special featured footage from past seasons of the Bachelor franchise including Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette.

Bristowe appeared on the special with her boyfriend, Bachelorette alum Jason Tartick. Tartick shared a clip on Instagram of the moment Bristowe heard she will appear on DWTS.

"Kaitlyn decided to forgo college to pursue dance, her dream was to always dance with professionals... 5 years later from making her debut on ABC we're heading to LA to make that dream come true," he wrote. "Mirror ball or not, you did it again... checked another box off your bucket list! And I'm freakin here for it!"
