Way to go, you guys! Kaitlyn Bristowe gave handsome Ryan Gosling doppelgänger Shawn Booth her final rose on The Bachelorette finale on Monday, July 27, but her decision may not have come as a surprise to Bachelor Nation. Back in June, Bristowe accidentally sent a sexy bed Snapchat of herself with her fiancé to the world.
“We were sending Snaps to one of the producers,” Booth said during Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night. “[And then] I pick up my phone to go on Twitter, and there’s hundreds of pictures of my stupid face laying in bed with her. I started having a panic attack. I couldn’t even breathe.”
The incident would have been fine and dandy if it happened following After the Final Rose. But unfortunately, it was posted in the middle of the season when Bristowe still had many more suitors vying for her heart. The intimate photo showed Booth shirtless and Bristowe resting her head on his chest.
“[Kaitlyn was] yelling at me,” Booth told host Kimmel.
Bristowe chimed in: “And then he’s like, ‘You did it!’ We went to full panic mode.”
“It’s very flattering,” she said, joking. “If we meant to do it, it would have looked a lot better.”
The couple can laugh about it now, but ABC was beyond peeved when the pics hit the Internet. So much so that Bachelorette producers cut their visit short, drove to where the twosome were, and took Booth home.
