  • Kaitlyn Bristowe posted a throwback photo on Instagram with Dancing With the Stars judge Derek Hough.

  • Kaitlyn flaunts darker hair in the picture, though The Bachelorette star switched to blonde years ago.

  • Fans reacted to the snap with surprise, hardly recognizing the current DWTS contestant.

Before Kaitlyn Bristowe graced the floor of Dancing With the Stars, she dealt with roses on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Longtime fans may remember the Canadian native sporting a different look back then. But if you need a refresher, you’re in luck.

The same day she and her pro partner, Artem Chigvintsev, danced the Rumba to “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana, Kaitlyn took to Instagram to show how far she’s come with her dancing skills. The 35-year-old posted a throwback photo featuring her dark hair and DWTS judge Derek Hough.

“Derek and I go way back. (Jk I forced him to take a pic with me 5 years ago),” she wrote. “Also, I now look at this pic and think, ‘Straighten your knee! Elbow up! Relax your hand’! 😂.”

Fans immediately flooded the comments section with surprised reactions. “That’s you????” one person wrote. “You look so different!!” another added. “Omg that doesn’t even look like you!!” a different fan said.

Others took the time to compliment Kaitlyn on her old hair color. Based on the TV personality's Instagram, it appears that she switched up her hair color in the fall of 2016 and has stuck to her signature blonde look ever since.

“I love you blonde but your dark hair is 😍😍😍,” a follower commented. “I love the dark hair! So beautiful inside and out 🔥,” another said. “You look beautiful no matter what color your hair is. True beauty right there ... 😘❤️,” a fan wrote.

Regardless of her hair color, Kaitlyn is clearly making her mark on DWTS. Despite struggling with an ankle injury, the reality star has consistently earned great scores week after week. Once her ankle heals up, we're sure she'll be unstoppable!
