However, her excited co-hosts snuck up behind her and the trio immediately embraced.
“Oh my god, AHH,” Katie exclaimed, before adding: “Wow you guys are going to make me cry. I’m so happy you guys are here!”
The gal pals then gushed that the brunette beauty “looked stunning” in her red sequin floor-length gown and called her a “desert rose.”
“We’re here to help you, we’re here for you. You do not have to do this by yourself,” the girls told Katie.

She responded that she “really thought she’d have to do this season” by herself.
“I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect. I mean Kaitlyn and Tayshia? The dream team is here,” the Bachelorette said with a huge smile.
The Washington then asked if the group could go inside as she had “so many questions” to ask the experienced former leads.
“What are the top two things you wish you knew before your season?” Katie asked.
“I know one. Don’t rule any of them out,” Kaitlyn instructed Katie.

Tayshia agreed, adding: “Absolutely not. I ended up with Zac [Clark] and he was not my top pick at all in the beginning. And now he’s my fiance!”
When she was asked if she has a type, Katie explained that she “doesn’t” but wants a guy who can “embrace her silly side but recognize she has a serious side.”
The dynamic between Tayshia and Kaitlyn – as well as their bond with Katie – was described as “fun and refreshing” by many viewers.
“The kaitlyn tayshia and katie dynamic is going to be soooo much better than chris harrison or any other guy,” one fan said.
Another begged the question: “Can we keep Tayshia and Kaitlyn as co-hosts? Sorry Chris Harrison.”
“I LOVE Tayshia and Kaitlyn pls never bring Chris Harrison back,” someone insisted.
A watcher tweeted: “Kaitlyn and Tayshia are so good at this I don’t even remember Chris tbh.”
“Kaitlyn and Tayshia have been better hosts in this episode than Chris Harrison was in his entire career,” a Twitter user praised the women.
Earlier this year, Bachelor fans were shocked last week as it was announced Chris, 49, will be replaced by former leads Tayshia, 30, and Kaitlyn, 35, for the on-camera role following backlash for his “racist” comments.
A series inside revealed to The Sun today that, “this season is the cheapest it’s ever cost to produce a season for the franchise.”

The source explained that with the “entire season being filmed in one place” along with “Chris Harrison’s salary out of the picture,” it cost “far less” to produce this season than any others previously.
“If it does the expected numbers in the ratings, it should be one of the most profitable seasons,” the informant revealed.
Chris’ salary has never been officially confirmed, but it’s been reported he earned around $8 MILLION per season of the ABC franchise.
However, the insider noted both Kaitlyn and Tayshia’s salaries “combined are still a fraction of what Chris made.”
