Is Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe engaged, and who is her final pick? Season 11 is just getting underway, but spoilers indicate that the 29-year-old dance instructor not only gets the gig as ABC’s leading lady, she also finds “love at first sight” on night one.
While her final pick has not been confirmed by ABC, her instant attraction to contestant Shawn Booth on the season premiere may be good reason for viewers to put the Ryan Gosling look-alike on their Bachelorette bracket.

According to Reality Steve, the 28-year-old Nashville resident quit his job to go on the show. Booth sent out a resignation letter to let his co-workers know that he was heading to L.A. for a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”
That makes him either very confident about getting the final rose, or he really wants the role of the next Bachelor.
Steve goes on to say that after Kaitlyn spends time with Shawn on the first night, she says in an ITM, “This is the closest I’ve felt to love at first sight.”
Apparently, Shawn feels the same way about Kaitlyn and gushes about her in his ITM after meeting her for the first time.
“I believe in love at first sight & I actually think it might’ve happened tonight when I saw Kaitlyn out of the limo.”
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, all that gushing over Kaitlyn seemed to work. Shawn gets the first impression rose on night one, gets a one-on-one in San Antonio (Episode 5), and is rumored to be one of Kaitlyn’s final three guys.
The show’s producers have done an excellent job of keeping things under wraps after the Bachelorette and her remaining guys left Dublin, Ireland (Episode 6). That means viewers may not find out if Shawn gets the final rose or if Kaitlyn picks someone else until the season finale airs on July 27.
However, Reality Steve is confident that, at the very least, Booth is one of Bristowe’s final guys.
“I don’t think I’m overstepping my bounds by saying that. From everything I’m hearing, he’s definitely one of the top guys that are left. And if she doesn’t choose him, you can immediately put him near the top of the list for the next Bachelor.”
Watch Kaitlyn and Shawn’s interaction on the Bachelorette Season 11 premiere starting at 9 p.m. on Monday, May 18. Comment below if you think they may end up as a couple at the end of the show, or if it’s just too early in the season to tell.
