‘The Bachelorette’: Why Kaitlyn Bristowe Wishes She Did the Same Thing as Colton Underwood on Her Season
Colton Underwood and Kaitlyn Bristowe both had shocking seasons. Now Bristowe revealed she would have done something differently like Underwood on her season of The Bachelorette. What could that be? Here is everything you need to know.
Colton Underwood revealed who he wanted to choose early
The Season 23 star had a very different ending to his season. That’s mostly because he was about to lose the woman he wanted to choose.
Colton Underwood’s season came down to Cassie Randolph, Tayshia Adams, and Hannah Godwin. When Cassie Randolph broke the news that she wasn’t ready to get engaged and wanted to leave, Underwood told her immediately that she was the one he was going to choose.
He broke the format of the show by sending both Adams and Godwin home. Then he went back to Randolph to ask if they would continue their relationship. It worked, but it was something never done before. However, it’s not because people didn’t want to reveal who they wanted to pick early.
Kaitlyn Bristowe said she wishes she could have said who she was picking earlier
The final pick isn’t typically revealed until the final rose ceremony and maybe there is a proposal. Bristowe followed suit but now she said she wishes she didn’t.
“Now it’s usually the format of the show to get engaged, but let me tell you, I was so annoyed on my season,” she said on her Off the Vine podcast. “I wanted to do what you did and be like, ’Screw it, I know who I’m picking.'”
She then talked about her feelings about Ben Higgins. “On my season I was like, ‘Can I just send the other guy home?’ Oh, I think Ben’s [in the audience] … No offense, Ben!” She did send him home before hometown dates. Then Nick Viall and Shawn Booth proposed, but she chose Booth.
Bristowe’s season had its own controversy
Her season didn’t go perfectly as planned either. In fact, she had to go through a lot of backlash from viewers.
That’s because the star usually doesn’t sleep with contestants before the fantasy suites. However, she broke that tradition by having sex with Nick Viall before fantasy suites. She wrote about her feelings about breaking the tradition afterward.
“Taking a relationship to an intimate level is very private to me,” she wrote in a blog for People. “And that is why this is difficult as the Bachelorette. Nothing is private. Should I have had sex with Nick in that moment? Probably not my best idea, but intimacy is important to me and I don’t believe the act is wrong.”
She continued, “I got lost in the moment and maybe I shouldn’t have made that choice. Hindsight is 20/20. I can’t help but wonder if I waited a couple weeks and did that in the fantasy suite and didn’t talk about it, would I be getting this kind of backlash?”
In the end, Bristowe chose Booth and they stayed together for three years before breaking up. Now she’s opening up about how she would have loved to have chosen him earlier.
