Who does The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe sleep with on the overnight dates (July 8), and who does she send home after a night of passion in the Fantasy Suite? This season, there’s not only big-time drama, there is also a change in the episode order that will prevent one the final three guys from introducing Kaitlyn to his family.
According to Reality Steve, the overnight dates will take place in Ireland where Episode 6 and 7 were also filmed. After eliminating Joe Bailey, Jared Haibon, and Chris Strandburg on Week 7, Kaitlyn is left with Nick Viall, Ben Higgins, and Shawn Booth.
For weeks, there has been controversy over Kaitlyn sleeping with Nick Viall on a one-on-one date in Dublin (Week 6). However, spoilers indicate that her romp with Andi Dorfman’s ex doesn’t stop her from getting intimate with Shawn and Ben on the overnight dates, and having a second round of sex with Nick.
In previous seasons, sex on the overnight dates has been assumed, but never revealed. Kaitlyn’s admission to sleeping with Nick early prior to overnights has made the intimate dates less of a secret.
When the episode airs on July 8, will cameras be outside the door like they were on Nick and Kaitlyn’s Dublin date? This season has been full of unexpected twists and turns, but hopefully, viewers won’t have to sit through another uncomfortable episode listening to two contestants “make love.”
Spoilers indicate that Ben Higgins will be sent home after spending the night with Kaitlyn, leaving this season’s frontrunners, Shawn and Nick, as the final two. Fans who were rooting for Ben won’t see him again until the Men Tell All (July 20) — unfortunately, he will not be joining six of his cast mates on Bachelor in Paradise this August.
After the overnights, Shawn and Nick go on their hometown dates, but they really shouldn’t be called hometowns this season. According to Reality Steve, Kaitlyn will meet the guys’ families at a resort in Park City, Utah.
“The show was sick of getting their hometown dates spoiled publicly by either me or social media, so they flew both Nick and Shawn’s family to a private resort in Park City, Utah to film the hometown dates. Hence the reason no pictures ever got out.”
The final rose ceremony airs July 27, with many fans hoping to see a happy ending for Kaitlyn. Early on in the season, there was speculation that she sent both Nick and Shawn home without a rose, but Reality Steve corrected his spoilers after Kaitlyn leaked a Snapchat video that showed her in bed with Shawn.
“Unfortunately, the spoiler is wrong. Kaitlyn did not dump Shawn at the final rose ceremony. They got engaged and she’s been with him since that day.”
Is she really engaged to Shawn, and how does Nick react to Kaitlyn rejecting his (rumored) proposal at the final rose ceremony? Tune in on July 27 at 8 p.m. ET to watch what Chris Harrison will undoubtedly call the most dramatic final rose ceremony ever.
