Shawn Booth and Kaitlyn Bristowe may have found love on The Bachelorette, but that doesn’t mean that they love the show. It turns out Shawn is sharing that they actually avoid anything to do with the show now. Kaitlyn and Shawn found love and have got a ton of money from the show, but they are moving on. People shared what Shawn Booth had to say about it all.
Shawn spoke to People while at the Bravest & Finest Workout at New York Sports Club in honor of First Responders Appreciation Month. The crazy thing is they wouldn’t even be at this event if it wasn’t for the reality show. Here is what Shawn had to say.
“[We] closed the door. It’s too much anxiety on Monday nights. After going through that and seeing what happens, what goes on, it’s tough to watch. We kind of stay away from it.”
Shawn is interested in one person from the show, though. Booth heard all about Chad Johnson and how he was a villain. Instead of avoiding Chad, Shawn actually went to YouTube and looked up a few clips of him to watch. Shawn feels like Chad is interesting and says he is pulling for him since he is a former Marine.
Now when it comes to Shawn’s relationship with Kaitlyn things are going great. They met on reality TV, but he shares that things really started after that for them. There have been so many rumors flying that Shawn and Kaitlyn had split, but according to him, the couple is doing just fine.
“We always say we used the show to meet each other, and we started dating after the show. You really start to know each other after the show, and luckily for us, it’s worked out. There have been no big surprises. Our relationship grew after the show and continues to grow. That’s the real test, a few months after the show, living with each other. Then you really find out who the person is – and she’s amazing.”
At this point, Shawn Booth and Kaitlyn Bristowe haven’t even started planning their wedding. They are just enjoying life and having fun with each other. It is great to see that this couple has made it, but the way that they are avoiding anything to do with The Bachelor it really doesn’t look like they will end up getting a live television wedding like other couples have in the past.
If you noticed, Shawn Booth and Kaitlyn Bristowe were not invited to JoJo Fletcher’s finale of the show. This could be part of why they are avoiding the show. Bustle shared what Shawn and Kaitlyn had to say about it. Kaitlyn went to her Twitter thanking them for the invite that she didn’t get. Shawn said that they were the best Bachelorette couple they have ever had, but they didn’t invite them. Mike Fleiss went to Twitter later saying, “Couldn’t have @Shawn_Booth there, too. Would have been goofy hair overload… #TheBachelorette.” Of course, that is just a lame excuse and not the real reason that they were not invited.
At this point, it would be pretty surprising if Shawn Booth and Kaitlyn Bristowe were invited to anything in the future. They seem to have moved on just fine from the show, and ABC seems to have moved on from them as well.
