Who Does Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe Pick? Reality Steve Was Wrong!
WARNING: Major spoilers ahead for Kaitlyn Bristowe's Season 11 finale! Do not read on if you don't want to know how this season ends!
For every season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Reality Steve releases his spoilers. And every season viewers question whether he got the final pick correct. Alas, it looks like the spoiler king has been trumped again, as he just admitted that he got Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Season 11 finale wrong! So what really happens?
This news may not come as a total surprise if you’ve been keeping up with Bachelorette news this week. Last Friday, Kaitlyn posted and quickly deleted a Snapchat video of herself in bed with contestant Shawn Booth, spurring many to wonder whether the Canadian gal had accidentally spoiled the ending of her love journey. Furthermore, those who had read Steve’s intel wondered what was up, considering he’d reported that Kait picked neither Shawn nor fellow final two-er Nick Viall in the end, remaining single.
We had our fair share of theories, but RS took to his own blog today to clear the air. And no, it’s neither a publicity stunt from ABC trying to throw us off their trail nor proof that Kaitlyn and Shawn got back together after the finale was filmed last month. Steve confirms that it is definitely Kaitlyn and Shawn in the clip and it was definitely taken last Friday night (note her newly darkened hair). So what’s up?
“The video on Friday obviously threw a wrench into things, so I spent the last three days checking with sources and finding out what I could,” the blogger writes. “And unfortunately, the spoiler is wrong. Dammit. I hate it when that happens.”
He continues, “Kaitlyn did not dump Shawn at the final rose ceremony. They got engaged and she’s been with him since that day.” No way!
So while this is all fantastic news — at least if you’re a Shawn fan and were hoping Kait would actually find love — we’re a little confused as to what went wrong. How could the spoiler-er have been so far off, especially when he’s been on point since the Desiree Hartsock-Brooks Forester debacle?
“Just like the past three seasons, I was given solid information this season that Kaitlyn was single and she dumped both Nick and Shawn at the final rose ceremony, so I ran with it,” Steve explains. He later adds, “Trust me, I’d like nothing better than to tell you the spoiler is right and the Kaitlyn/Shawn hook up started after the show once she had a change of mind, but that’s not what happened.”
What is right? According to RS, all of his info on Nick is still correct, from him being the guy who Kait has sex with (during their 1-on-1 date in Episode 6 in Dublin) to his proposal in the finale and her rejection. And hey, now we know definitively that Kait is engaged and happy with Shawn! Much better than a Brad Womack part two, right?
