Watch: Tayshia Adams & Kaitlyn Bristowe Talk Hosting "The Bachelorette"

Kaitlyn Bristowe had no time for pretenses during her stint as the Bachelorette, and she's apparently kept up that same philosophy, six years later.

On Thursday, June 17, the 35-year-old reality TV personality shared a refreshingly forthright response after a Twitter user remarked that something seemed "different" about the star's look but that the person couldn't identify what would have changed. Kaitlyn returned to TV this month to join Tayshia Adams as co-hosts of Katie Thurston's current season of The Bachelorette

In her reply, Kaitlyn wrote, "6 years since I was on the show, Brow lift, brow micro blading, got my teeth bonded, some filler In my lips, aging, darker hair, and I finally learned how to contour. Oh and I put on some weight [flexed-bicep emoji]."

The message earned plenty of praise from fans who were impressed that the Dancing With the Stars winner, who recently got engaged to fellow Bachelor Nation standout Jason Tartick, was so candid.

One supporter commented, "Don't forget that you met the love of your life, opened multiple companies, and won DWTS. That joy leaves a mark." To this, Kaitlyn succinctly wrote back, "Amen." 

In April, Kaitlyn posted to Instagram that she was visiting a plastic surgeon for the first time in order repair her earlobes following years of wearing heavy earrings.

"Everyone seems to think I always go under the knife for surgery, but I haven't till now," she captioned a shot of herself at the surgeon's office back then. 

Kaitlyn's willingness to tell it like it is has helped her successfully lead The Bachelorette as co-host. Earlier this month, she explained to E! News in an exclusive interview that both she and Tayshia were glad to offer Katie guidance as needed. 

"I think it was important to both of us to show her that we could relate," Kaitlyn said. "We've been in your shoes, we are here to support you."
