Kaitlyn Bristowe Chooses Shawn Booth, Makes Nick Viall Bachelorette Runner Up a Second Time
Nick Viall. Always the runner up, never the winner.
Kaitlyn Bristowe has given out the final rose, to Shawn Booth. The personal trainer from Connecticut proposed to Kaitlyn on the season finale of the Bachelorette and she happily accepted.
That means Nick Viall is the runner up... again.
For two consecutive seasons Nick has bought the engagement ring, only to be rejected by the Bachelorette. First it was Andi Dorfman. Now it's Kaitlyn.
Kaitlyn told Shawn, "The truth is you light me up and make me laugh and, most importantly, you allow me to be myself. The truth is I never want you to question what we have ever again because I am completely yours."
As for Nick, she told him, "I want to find something that had gone wrong and the only explanation that I have is my heart is just with somebody else."
Obviously heartbroken, the software sales executive didn't buy any of it. He responded with, "You took things from me. It's not fair for you to tell me that what I feel, you feel the same. 'Cause you don't. If you did, you'd have a ring on your finger right now."
"I'm the world's biggest joke," he said to himself in the limo as he put the engagement ring back into its box and tossed it aside.
At the After the Final Rose, Kaitlyn told Nick that no love that she had was as strong as the one she had for Shawn. He conceded that he knew Kaitlyn didn't intentionally hurt him. Nick and Shawn also talked out their differences. Shawn said that he never clicked with Nick and although he was never jealous of Nick, he is the kind of man who wears his heart on his sleeve.
Now the question is, will Shawn and Kaitlyn make it down the aisle?
