If you watched Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette, you’re probably obsessed with her relationship with Shawn Booth.
Seriously, these two are #relationshipgoals and their Snapchats are hilarious. But back before these two were a perfectly engaged pair, there were plenty of other men vying for her heart, including Nick Viall and Ben Higgins.
Yet recently on her podcast, Bristowe revealed that the final rose ceremony, which left Viall and Booth as the last men standing, was actually more of a “made for TV” moment than you might have thought. Bristowe explains,”I wanted my final two to be Ben and Shawn because I knew I would hurt Nick. But I couldn’t because then apparently it would’ve been boring, my season, and at that point, I was like, ‘Whatever, it was going to be Shawn.'”
So if you watched the finale on the edge of your seat, wondering who she would pick, you maybe feel a little silly now. If you were like the rest of the world and knew it was going to be Shawn, then you feel validated. We can’t wait for the Kaitlyn Bristowe-Shawn Booth wedding. Seriously, they had better televise it because we are ready and waiting.
