Did ‘The Bachelorette’ Stage Britt Nilsson And Brady Toops’ Romance?

Fans of The Bachelorette like drama, even if that drama might have someone behind the scenes pulling the strings. This season, with the dual Bachelorette twist, the first night’s festivities had an added element. Once the new Bachelorette, Kaitlyn Bristowe, was chosen, what would become of those men interested in the other contender, Britt Nilsson?

For one contender, Brady Toops, there was no woman other than Britt. He did not leave the show immediately, however; he stayed long enough to chat with Kaitlyn and stand among the other men during the first rose ceremony. He halted that ceremony, took Kaitlyn aside and told her his heart was with Britt.

Host Chris Harrison told Brady they could make an introduction happen. The following week, it was revealed that Brady and Britt are having a romance, one that has continued since filming stopped.

So, was Toops’ dramatic pursuit of Nilsson staged by Bachelorette producers? Chris Harrison had a surprising answer during an interview with Hallmark’s Home & Family. In a clip provided to Us Weekly, Harrison said producers took steps to make the show as entertaining as possible, while ensuring that Britt was actually interested in Brady and a happy ending was possible.

“Let me tell you what’s produced. Brady decides on his own, ‘I came here for Britt, I think she’s beautiful,’ they have this connection, you saw that happen on that first episode. So, he tells us as producers, ‘I don’t want to be here for Kaitlyn. She’s the Bachelorette, I want to leave.’

“So we then facilitate the best way for that to happen. He doesn’t know where Britt’s going to be. He doesn’t know what hotel she’s at. Obviously we have to tell him and facilitate that part of it. [But] it’s always them saying, ‘I have this idea, I want this to happen, I want to find Britt.’

“We even went so far, though, as to talk to Britt, because Britt — we wanted to make sure she was interested in Brady. We didn’t say, ‘he’s coming after you,’ but we talked about the people she was interested in and had a good connection with, and Brady was one of them.”

You can have a look at the Home & Family interview with Chris Harrison below. He talks about Britt and Brady starting at about the 4:07 mark.

As Us Weekly reported, since Brady Toops and Britt Nilsson went public with their romance, they have been active on social media, showing off pics of them engaged in heavy PDA.
