"If the physical part of the relationship isn't there for me, that's the deal breaker," Bristowe, 29, said at one point, only for viewers to later discover that she's had sex with one of the suitors.

"I don't understand it just happened," she continued tearfully in the shocking preview. "I don't think I'm a bad person, and I'm not ashamed of myself… One of those relationships went too far, too fast. And I made a big mistake."
