‘The Bachelorette’ Finale: Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth Reveal Their …

28 Jul 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe shops for wedding dress — with Jimmy Kimmel.

When the bridal stylist asked what Kaitlyn was looking for, the 30-year-old said she wanted something that was ‘not poofy, lacy, sexy, but not too sexy’. “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe said yes to her last suitor standing, Shawn Booth, after he presented her with a square-cut Neil Lane engagement ring during Monday’s season finale.

“Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe chose Shawn Booth over Nick Viall in the dramatic season finale last night — and now that she’s engaged, it’s time to pick out a wedding dress.The Bachelorette suffered through series lows during 2014’s run with Andi Dorfman, but it bounced back in a major way with its recently concluded eleventh season, starring Kaitlyn Bristowe.Jimmy Kimmel invited The Bachelorette’s Kaitlyn Bristowe on to his show on Monday to go wedding dress shopping, in honor of her engagement to Shawn Booth. “We don’t want this to be like a Kardashian wedding, we want this to be classy,” Kimmel told the store attendant.When—spoiler alert!— finally chose as the winner of The Bachelorette season 11, we knew there had to be a show-stopping engagement ring coming soon. While Bristowe and Booth have stayed together since the show wrapped earlier this spring, the real test of their relationship is about to begin now that they can finally flaunt their love in public.

Fortunately, Jimmy Kimmel was on hand to help with the shopping, accompanying her on a trip to LA’s Lovely Bride on Monday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” The late-night host was an attentive companion, answering questions on behalf of the bride-to-be. When she suggested dresses that weren’t white he alluded to the criticisms Bristowe has received for being sexually active on the reality show. “Have you been watching the show is that why you told her she can’t wear a white dress?” he asked, saying he was offended. When store owner Rebekah asked, “Have you tried on dresses before?” Kimmel immediately replied, “Yes, I have.” When Rebekah suggested a gown in a pink hue, Kimmel joked, “I think that’s very rude.

Bristowe tried on a series of dresses as Rodriguez and Kimmel took tequila shots before they decided they should try on bridesmaid dresses. “I don’t want my bridesmaids looking better than me,” joked Bristowe after seeing them in a few options. Kimmel had Bristowe and fiance Booth swear on a stack of Us Weekly magazines that they would still be in a committed relationship in one year, or else pay Kimmel $1,000. Sex has always been a presumed part of the equation for the franchises, but they have long been loathe to directly suggest that the contestants consummate things on the show, instead merely hinting at such activity during evenings referred to euphemistically as “fantasy-suite dates.” But this season was different, as the episode in which Bristowe and Viall first did the deed featured an onscreen caption with Viall’s line overheard from behind their closed bedroom door: “I want to know every part of you.” Speaking of those fantasy-suite dates, this season was the first time the show aired footage of the couples in their hotel room on the morning after the night of off-camera bonding. The hand-crafted design also featured 160 petite diamonds surrounding the main sparklers, and an entwined band that add even more sophistication to the already impressive piece. “Shawn was very self-assured and there was no doubt in his mind about what he was about to do,” Neil Lane himself told People. “He was not nervous at all and was like, ‘That’s the ring, that’s the girl and we are moving on together.’ He was certain he was the guy.” And while it may be it easy to tack Bristowe and Booth’s names onto the list for good measure, we think these crazy kids just may make it to the altar.

This meant viewers got to see Viall shirtless and Bristowe in her sleepwear while they enjoyed hotel room service and discussed the finer points of Canadian bacon (Bristowe is from British Columbia). Jimmy couldn’t help but crack a joke when he emerged in a purple sequined gown, saying: ‘I feel like if Prince got married, this is what his mother would wear to the wedding.’ Jimmy and Guillermo’s third and final look was a pair of tangerine dresses, with the talk show host also sporting the black leather leggings Kaitlyn arrived at the store in. From the moment Booth stepped out of the limo on Night 1 at the mansion, he made it clear to Bristowe that he was there for her, not for “Bachelorette” runner-up Britt Nilsson. The year’s journey began with the 25 men voting between Bristowe and fellow Bachelor season-19 also-ran Britt Nilsson to determine which woman would be the focal point of the season, a gimmick attempted only once by The Bachelor, back in season six.

Season 10’s runner-up, Viall rubbed #BachelorNation the wrong way for slut-shaming ex-girlfriend Dorfman in front of a live audience during the “After the Final Rose” special last summer. Never before has a returning cast member become such a key figure, not to mention that Viall was widely seen as the villain of Dorfman’s season, in which he was also the runner-up. In past seasons, a former contestant would often ask to join the fray and be permitted to participate for an episode or two until the star got fed up by pushback from the other competitors and showed the returnee the door. Amen.’ While they aren’t planning on walking down the aisle any time soon, Kaitlyn revealed there will definitely be a few familiar faces from The Bachelorette at her wedding. Since The Bachelor’s debut back in 2002, each rose ceremony — in which the star bestows flowers on the lucky contestants who survive to the next episode — has taken place at the end of the episode.

For Kaitlyn’s run, the rose ceremonies were seen well before the episode’s end, with the final scene instead featuring a fight or conflict that was concluded in the following episode to entice viewers to return.
