After the latest The Bachelorette episode aired on Monday night, Jared posted a lengthy message to his Instagram page in which he thanked his fans for their support throughout the show. He also talked about Kaitlyn. As he was when Kaitlyn sent him home, Jared remains gracious, positive and optimistic.

“I Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everybody who has reached out and given me such amazing support over the past couple of months!!! My journey on the bachelorette was one of the best experiences of my life, I feel lucky to have been able to meet such a great group of guys and have close friendships with so many of them! I got to share so many incredible moments with such a great girl, moments that will always have a special place in my heart! Honestly, I do feel like the luckiest man alive, so thank you!!! #TheBachelorette#bachelorfamily #BachelorNation#grateful #bachelorette.”

He accompanied his post with a collage of photos from his time on the show.


Kaitlyn sent Jared home during the rose ceremony. When Kaitlyn broke down in tears over sending him home, Jared immediately comforted her. He kept his tears in until he got in the car.

“You’re a wonderful person and I’m really glad I met you. Make sure you find the man of your dreams, because you deserve it.”

Kaitlyn Bristowe called Jared Haibo a “true gentleman” for how he handled the breakup.

Many people replied to Kaitlyn’s tweet to agree that Jared was a true gentleman and added that he’s a class act. Many also called for Jared to be the next The Bachelor star. Perhaps Jared’s fans will see him find love in paradise? On Tuesday morning, E! News reported that Jared will be seen on season 2 ofBachelor in Paradise.

Besides Jared Haibon, Joe Bailey, during a group date earlier in the day, was also sent home. However, unlike Jared, Joe didn’t handle his rejection as well. Joe wouldn’t look Kaitlyn in the eye and said things like, “It’s cool,” “It’s been fun” and “No worries man.” He reluctantly gave Kaitlyn a hug and then said, either to Kaitlyn, a producer or the cameraman, that he’s “not saying s** to you” and “I’m done with you — don’t talk to me.”

As the Inquistir reported, Joe tweeted that he was so overwhelmed with his emotions that he didn’t know what to do or say.

With Jared Haibo and Joe Bailey’s departure, the remaining three men on The Bachelorette are Shawn Booth, Nick Viall and Ben Higgins. While it’s clear that Shawn Booth and Nick Viall don’t like one another, both have expressed their admiration for Ben. Nick tweeted that he loves Ben while Nick jokingly tweeted that he couldn’t stand the thought of sharing Kaitlyn with Ben.
