While Nick Viall used his words to get back at Shawn Booth, his co-star threatened to use his hands! On this week’s episode of The Bachelorette, Kaitlyn confronted Shawn about Nick’s concerns that the fan favorite is a player. Kaitlyn trying to get to the bottom of their fight only caused Shawn and Nick’s feud to heat up, as Shawn threatened to get physical with his enemy!
The episode kicked off with Shawn continuing to confront Nick for having sex with Kaitlyn before the fantasy suite dates. “You’re manipulating, you’re arrogant and you’re just a cocky guy,” Shawn fired. “If you’re what she wants then I can sleep fine because then me and her weren’t meant to be together.” The men’s ongoing feud began to take a toll on Kaitlyn. “Nick and Shawn just hate each other,” she explained. “It’s taking away what I feel for both of them.”
But Kaitlyn put her feelings towards their fight aside, as she spent the day golfing with Shawn. After beating the Calvin Harris lookalike, she dared him to streak across the golf course, which he did with no problem! After Shawn flaunted his rock hard abs (and huge black box!), Kaitlyn brought up the feud during dinner. Shawn explained of why he can’t get along with Nick, “I didn’t understand his reason for coming here and I didn’t think he was here 100 percent for you.” Kaitlyn then explained that Nick told her Shawn brags about being Eskimo brothers, which means that they have both had sex with Kaitlyn. Shawn denied the accusations by responding, “He’s just a terrible person… That’s not me at all.”
When Shawn returned home from his date with Kaitlyn, Nick was outside waiting for him. Nick explained that he wanted the chance to defend himself since Shawn kept interrupting him the first time they spoke. But instead of letting Nick speak, Shawn threatened him. “If I hear my name come out of your mouth one more time to Kaitlyn, it’s not going to be pretty,” he said. “I don’t care if I don’t ever talk to you for the rest of my life so how about you just get the f—k out of my place right now.”
Although Kaitlyn said that Ben would “make a great husband,” she sent him home during the rose ceremony. “I just feel like you are going to find the best girl in the world and it frustrates me that it’s not me,” she told him. Ben responded, “I showed you who I was and there is nothing about you or the situation that I thought couldn’t work. I would love to be able to share life with you, but that’s not going to happen and that will be tough.”
When Shawn told Kaitlyn that he loves her, she broke down over whom to choose. “I’m so confused,” she cried. “I know they both care so much and I care so much and now people’s families care so much and when I think of saying goodbye to one of the two I have left I don’t know how to do it.”
