After the episode concluded, the 'After the Final Rose' followed. It was an opportunity to see Shawn and Kaitlyn together. However, Kaitlyn must have been nervous considering Nick Viall's notorious 'After the Final Rose' past. Luckily for Kaitlyn America and Shawn knew about Nick.
Chris Harrison showed a Snapchat from Shawn and no not that infamous one.' Shawn stayed true to his Snap and found Kaitlyn and look where they are now. Additionally, the Snap, which was considered a spoiler was addressed on a recent press interview.
"There's only a few amount of people who knew we were together, so we were sending a Snapchat to one of the producers and I accidentally made it go to my story instead of to the producer," Kaitlyn Bristowe said. "We felt sick to our stomachs about it, had mild heart attacks and felt really bad."
It was awkward to see the making of 'The Bachelorette' history, when the final two had a chat. Clearly, Shawn and Nick appeared to be over the food and it seemed that it was only situational. If there was not enough clarity at the After the Final Rose, Nick spoke of Kaitlyn and Shawn's relationship on a recent press call.
"I respect her decision," Nick Viall said. "I respect Kaitlyn and that she knows what she wants."
My favorite question to ask the final couple is if there is a moment that they wish the audience would have seen that did not make the air.
"We'll pick one, there's a few... For me, it would be we had like a big moment on top of a boat in New York," said Kaitlyn to Bachelor Expert. "We were slow dancing and I feel like we really fell in love in that moment."
"Yeah, I was going to say the same exact thing that was a perfect night," Shawn Booth added. "And I think we both like, yes, this is real, this is happening. It was amazing."
What is up next for the couple? "So we're going to focus on figuring out where to live, you know, visit Nashville, go to Vancouver, and take care of that stuff the next month or two, and then start making some plans," Booth said.
Finally, thank you all for watching this season. Kaitlyn is one of my favorite bachelorettes. She was raw, real and completely unapologetic about who she is as a person. Whether you agree with her or not that is something everyone can respect.
Calling all Nick fans, he is still single and open to finding love. He will have ladies lined up and down the streets of Chicago.
