Nick Viall: ‘Wasted Energy’ Fighting With Shawn Booth, Should’ve Focused Only On Kaitlyn Bristowe

Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette continued where last week’s episode left off, with Shawn Booth and Nick Viall arguing with one another in Nick’s hotel room after his overnight date with Kaitlyn Bristowe. Later on in the episode, Shawn and Nick got into another verbal altercation.

As the episode aired, Nick admitted that he should’ve spent less time arguing with Shawn and should have focused more on Kaitlyn. Nick tweeted that Kaitlyn was right in saying that he and Shawn were acting like immature school girls.

As the Inquisitr reported about last week’s episode, Kaitlyn confessed to Shawn that she and Nick had already had sex, an action that previous Bachelorette Andi Dorfman applauded. While Shawn remained composed in front of Kaitlyn, he later angrily confronted Nick in his hotel room after he got back from his official overnight date with Kaitlyn.

The current episode showed the continuation of the fight. Shawn said that Nick was an “a**hole” who joined the show for the wrong reasons, including trying to rehabilitate his reputation from the previous season, and doesn’t really love Kaitlyn. Nick countered that they are not that different from one another. Nick reminded Shawn that he bragged about being an “Eskimo brother” with a famous country singer after having had sex with the same girl on the same night. Shawn, irritated, stormed out of the room.

During Kaitlyn Bristowe’s subsequent date with Shawn Booth, she brought up Nick Viall over dinner. She asked Shawn why they hate each other so much. Shawn confessed that he had confronted Nick at his hotel room and they had a big argument. Shawn said that Nick just proved what an “a**hole” he is. Shawn became infuriated after hearing that Nick has been talking about him like a “16-year-old girl.” Shawn and Kaitlyn continued their talk in the fantasy suite.

Shawn and Nick again then got into another verbal fight. This time, it was Nick who was waiting for Shawn at his hotel room after his overnight date with Kaitlyn. While Nick wanted to talk, Shawn didn’t want to hear it. Shawn, not letting Nick talk, told Nick to “keep his name out of his mouth” and that he is the “last person he wants to see or talk to.” Nick finally left after Shawn yelled at him to “get the f**k out of his face.”

While Nick Viall has expressed regret over how he handled the drama with Shawn Booth, Shawn has stayed more silent. As The Bachelorette aired, Shawn only posted a tweet that joked about the underwear that he was wearing during his golf date with Kaitlyn Bristowe.
