Is it the Guinness, the whiskey, or the Irish Spring hotel soap that’s gone to Kaitlyn’s head? Not sure, but this dimwit bachelorette just let one good, hot guy walk out the castle door. It’s no secret anymore that handsome, heartthrob Ben Higgins was given the boot and has already been crowned the next Bachelor-in-waiting. Ben, in that fisherman sweater, was one shade away from Christian Gray. Can you even imagine the line of beautiful women waiting to get their hands on him next season? If I were just a little younger 😉
Meantime, Kaitlyn (who’s slept with just about every Bachelor and maybe even Chris Harrison) continues to make dumb mistakes and then cry about them. Between her non-stop laughing and endless sobbing, Kaitlyn should be having a one-on-one with the on-set shrink.
So, Kaitlyn is left with two guys: Nick V. who cried on the couch when Andi Dorfman dumped him last season, and Shawn B., the jacked and slightly unhinged trainer, who’s about to turn Nick’s head into ground meat. Kaitlyn’s apparently very torn between the two, because she lets us know every 5 minutes. Nick’s had an extra bed session with Kaitlyn, but we’re not yet sure if that works to his advantage. And Kaitlyn did get to see Shawn’s putter on the golf course before she stayed in the fantasy suite with him that night. Hole in one.
As for family time, both families seemed OK, with Nick’s mother definitely worried that Nick’s head might explode if he comes in 2nd again this season. So were his 18 brothers and sisters.
Next week Kaitlyn takes the hot seat (looking forward to Ian from Princeton reminding her how shallow she is) and then it’s on to the finale.
My guess on who Kaitlyn winds up with? Think it’s Shawn, who’s been nursing booze and an unhealthy attachment to Kaitlyn these past few weeks. As for Nick? It’s a really good thing there’s a pub nearby.
