"Kaitlyn and Nick initially started talking as friends," a source told E! News. "They had both been on the show and they bonded over that mutual experience. But it soon took a romantic turn. They never met in person before the show, but they were talking, texting and Facetiming for hours at a time from late February to early March. It would sometimes go on until the middle of the night."

Even though Kaitlyn was shocked when Nick showed up on one of the group dates, the insider revealed that they actually discussed Nick joining the running for her heart. “She told him she was hoping he’d surprise her on the show,” the source said. “She said it in a joking way, but I think she was serious. She told her friends she was hoping he’d do it.”

Nick even hoped Britt Nilsson would be picked as The Bachelorette so the duo could “pick up where they left off." The insider added, “But once Kaitlyn became Bachelorette, Nick put a call into production. He didn’t want to give up on her. He was willing to risk it all.”
