'DWTS': Kaitlyn Bristowe Suffers Ankle Injury Just Before Live Show

Will Kaitlyn Bristowe make it to the ballroom this week? Dancing With the Stars host Tyra Banks revealed on Tuesday’s episode that the former Bachelorette had suffered an injury, and may not be performing. 

“The rest of our cast is ready to light up the ballroom with the exception of one. Just before we went live, Kaitlyn Bristowe was dealing with an ankle injury. So we got to ask, will she pull though?” Banks asked as video played of Bristowe being checked out by a doctor. “We’ll find out later. We’ll find out live.” 

Bristowe was seemingly ready to compete just hours earlier, as she posted videos of herself in the makeup trailer on her Instagram Story. She and partner Artem Chigvintsev slayed their performance on the season 29 premiere last week, delivering a lively, show-stopping Cha Cha to “Stupid Love” by Lady Gaga. They earned a total score of 20/30 from the judges.

“I thought it was spicy,” Bristowe told ET of her dance after the show. “Anyone who knows me, knows I am not safe. I am not a safe person. I kind of tried to do my own thing, but it gives us room for improvement.”   

“It is good, trust me,” Chigvintsev reasoned. “You don’t want to get the best score the first week… There is nowhere to step [up].”

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
