Poor Shawn. Just when he was falling seriously in love with Kaitlyn Bristowe, she revealed that she’d made love to his mortal enemy, Nick Viall. Here’s why he almost walked out!
Kaitlyn Bristowe— the most “physical” Bachelorette the show has ever had, nearly lost Shawn Booth, the man she said was “the one,” and it was all because of her chemistry with contestant Nick Viall. And because she was guilty.
Yes, Kaitlyn was so guilt-ridden that she had done the deed with two time Bachelor contestant, Nick, that she actually confessed all to her other main man, Shawn, and he was blindsided big time. “It had been weighing on her,” an insider explained to Us Weekly magazine.
Apparently, she thought Shawn already knew that she had slept with Nick — Wrong! Booth was so stunned, he thought about leaving the show and the quest for love. “He was distraught. He’s so masculine, that in a weird way, her sleeping with Nick felt almost emasculating,” the insider explained.
That feeling is exactly what made Shawn think he had to quit the show. “He absolutely thought about leaving. Every instinct for Shawn was to leave,” added the source. Because Shawn and Nick hate each other so deeply, Nick being the guy who Kaitlyn slept with, made it even harder on Shawn.
“The fact that it was Nick really hurt Shawn,” said the source. And it seems that, on the July 6 episode, matters will only get more heated between the two dudes. Shawn is going to call for the number of Nick’s hotel room and, according to the source, it’s the first time he’ll ever say Nick’s name! Drama, drama and lots more drama.
Are you Team Nick or Team Shawn?
