It was a tense finale, as Kaitlyn had to choose between Shawn and Nick Viall, two guys with whom she admitted she was falling in love. But she can only pick one man to spend the rest of her life with (especially because these two guys would make horrible roommates), and she made her final choice in the finale of The Bachelorette.
Kaitlyn and Shawn have had a wild ride over the past few weeks. Shawn got the First Impression Rose on Arrivals Night, and their chemistry was evident immediately:
When the gang flew to Ireland, Kaitlyn and Nick had sex on their one-on-one date. Kaitlyn was extremely nervous to tell Shawn, but she went through with it anyway:
Kaitlyn was afraid that Shawn would leave the show, but he didn’t. In fact, he took the news that they slept together pretty well, all things considered. He said he was there for her, and nothing would sway him. Obviously, he was serious about that.
And now that Shawn and Kaitlyn are engaged, that brings Season 11 of The Bachelorette to a close. Don’t forget that Bachelor in Paradise kicks off SUNDAY 8|7c, with another episode MONDAY 8|7c, followed by the live after-show After Paradise MONDAY 9|8c.
