Kaitlyn Bristowe got engaged to Shawn Booth at the end of her season of The Bachelorette. The two were together for about three years before they announced their split.

Today, Bristowe is happily with Jason Tartick, who competed on Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette. Within their first year of dating the couple moved in together and adopted a dog. Now, they’re talking about things like getting married and having kids.

Kaitlyn Bristowe is worried that Shawn Booth hates her

When Bristowe was a guest on former bachelor Nick Viall’s podcast last week, she told Viall that she’s worried Booth hates her for moving on so quickly.

“We break up and all of a sudden I did move on quickly, if you look at it from a certain way, I moved on quickly. And all of a sudden I like bought the house, I’ve got a guy, I’ve got a new golden retriever, I’m like having my wine business, and so proud of where I’m at and I feel like he might hate me. It makes me sad because all I ever did was try and make him happy and I just feel like he’s still angry at me,” Bristowe shared.

But as it turns out, Booth might have been trying to move on quickly as well.

Did Shawn Booth try to be on the most recent season of ‘Bachelor In Paradise’?  

According to Viall he did.

“I Heard some rumors from multiple sources that Shawn wanted to go on Paradise this year and he made some strong attempts,” Viall told Bristowe.  

“I heard that, too,” the former bachelorette replied.

“And he was not allowed,” Viall went on. “I can’t speak to why but like if I’m a producer and only cared about ratings I absolutely cast Shawn. And I feel like, and I don’t know this for sure, but it was probably maybe out of consideration for you that Shawn wasn’t brought back on.”

Bristowe didn’t offer whether she agreed with Viall’s prediction as to why Booth wasn’t cast.

“They’re really good at picking your brain and getting in there and helping you grow and figuring out if you’d actually work with someone. Like I truly believe that,” she said.

For whatever reason, Booth was not on the most recent season of Bachelor In Paradise. But now that Bristowe’s happily with Tartick and the two are headed for marriage, there’s no reason Booth can’t or shouldn’t hit the beach next year.
