Kaitlyn Bristowe has mentioned one of her biggest fears is leaving The Bachelorette with no one after all she’s been through on the show. Now, host Chris Harrison says there is a very real possibility that Kaitlyn may walk away without handing out her final rose on Monday night’s much-anticipated finale.
Harrison calls this season the most controversial Bachelorette season in the show’s history. Fans have witnessed polarizing decisions made by Kaitlyn Bristowe. They’ve followed her as she faced harsh criticism and even cyber bullying in response to those decisions. The season has been full of drama, much of which was created by Kaitlyn’s final two suitors, Nick Viall and Shawn Booth.
Chris Harrison told ET Online all that drama may just cost both Nick and Shawn their chance at a life with Kaitlyn. Chris said the two are so focused on their rivalry, it’s taken their attention away from their relationships with Kaitlyn.
“If ever there was a possibility of [a Bachelorette] just walking away with nobody, it’s this season. She’s having such a tough time, and she’s dealing with two guys who are kind of making more drama than there needs to be.”
Although Kaitlyn Bristowe chose Nick and Shawn over drama-free Ben Higgins, she made it clear she is not comfortable being in the middle of such a heated rivalry.
“It’s getting to the point where it’s not even about Kaitlyn anymore. It’s about each other, and how much they dislike each other.”
According to Us Weekly, former suitors Chris “Cupcake” and Ben Higgins think personal trainer Shawn Booth will walk away with Kaitlyn’s heart. While many fans think Bristowe’s connection with Nick is most natural, Chris thinks her strongest connection is with Shawn. He adds great hair doesn’t hurt, either.
“I think that Shawn is the best match for Kaitlyn. I think he balances her out very well and they have a very natural connection. Man, that haircut is unbeatable! So I think he’s going to win.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Chris Harrison told Us Weekly he feels like Kaitlyn Bristowe “deeply loves” Shawn and wants to take care of him.
“I think she wants to take care of Shawn. Even telling him about her thing with Nick, that was an odd attempt to take care of him, to be his caretaker.”
