‘It was love at first sight': Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe gushes about new fiancé Shawn Booth as she insists she ‘picked the right guy’.

In the issue, the 30-year-old former dance instructor – who nicely showed off her $150,000 3.5-carat diamond Neil Lane engagement ring – revealed, ‘Every day I think, “I picked the right guy.”‘ ‘We just want to do anything normal,’ the 29-year-old blonde Ryan Gosling look-alike said. ‘Going out to dinner, just hanging out with our family and our friends.’ The nail-biting live finale came from Los Angeles on Monday, and Kaitlyn admitted from the start that she was in love with both of her final two suitors.Cries of “I’m so single” drifted across the country during last night’s Bachelorette finale as wine nights brought passionate debates over Kaitlyn Bristowe’s “Sophie’s Choice” between Shawn Booth, the Nashville personal-trainer bro with an affinity for nudity, and Nick Viall, the confused hipster/nerd with an affinity for being on television.Bling, bling! said “yes!” to Shawn Booth on The Bachelorette season finale on Monday, July 27, while also gushing over the gorgeous engagement ring he chose for her—and she hasn’t been able to stop since!

On the season finale of “The Bachelorette” Monday night, 29-year-old dancer Kaitlyn Bristowe accepted a marriage proposal from 28-year-old personal trainer Shawn Booth, naming him the winner of the season. Nick, a software sales executive, was at the heart of one of the most controversial moments on the series when he returned from being the runner up last season to court Kaitlyn – beating off competition from 23 other suitors. Though the majority of us never will be given the chance to put our lives on hold to compete for the opportunity of a quickie engagement (filmed in the midst of our lowest moments, no less), there are still love lessons to be learned from the 30-season-strong megafranchise. The jewel, which was hand-crafted and signed by Lane himself, boasts a central round brilliant-cut diamond, 160 smaller diamonds, and an entwined band, all set in platinum.

This was all very dramatic and surprising — except for the fact that it wasn’t at all, because Kaitlyn actually spoiled the results of the show online weeks ago. Somewhere, maybe in the office of US Weekly’s on-staff Wiccan, sand began running through an hourglass: when it’s through, they will break up, get a cover, and Kaitlyn will soon be seen canoodling with professional athletes. The brunette beauty hopped on Snapchat, too—on purpose this time!—where she shared a text-free plane selfie with her new love, featuring the sparkler front and center.

I really needed all this time with you.’ As he left alone by limo he angrily ranted: ‘It’s like a f***ing joke, I am the world’s biggest joke,’ before being seen throwing the emerald-cut diamond ring. Likewise, Booth, 28, who’s a personal trainer, also took to the social media site to chronicle their journey to the Big Apple. “NYC bound with this girl…” he wrote next to one photo, featuring a hat-topped Bristowe showing off her bling. The Bachelorette franchises have been going on for so long now there is hardly ever anything new about them—just different people, running the same lines. ABC wouldn’t comment on the video, and when asked about it later, Kaitlyn dodged the question and coyly joked that she had actually been in bed with Ryan Gosling.

That’s likely because ABC generally goes to great lengths to ensure that the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” seasons, taped months in advance of when the show actually airs, go unspoiled. But this season, Kaitlyn took a big swing at the double standard that surrounds the franchise, the one that lets bachelors smooch around, while remaining “good guys,” and keeps bachelorettes from doing the same without risking edit-bay (and then public) opprobrium. Not only is it a contractual obligation, but several contestants have revealed the elaborate measures they take to secretly see each other before they’re allowed to reveal their love to the world. I love you so much.’ The dancer accepted the 6ft 2in hunk’s proposal, telling him in return: ‘The truth is you light me up and you make me laugh and most importantly you allow me to be myself. ‘I know that this has not been easy on you.

This was a contravention of protocol that constituted the season’s serious drama: How much tearful guilt would Kaitlyn feel about sleeping with Nick, while professing to feel no guilt at all? On the finale Monday night, Kaitlyn told host Chris Harrison it feels like Christmas knowing that she and Shawn can now finally act like an everyday couple and hang out with family and friends. “We can’t wait to go to Starbucks!” she said, relishing in the potential act of normalcy. Could Nick want to share the secret of their tryst so badly that the secret would take on physical form and poise on his tongue like a pebble, willing itself to be spat out? Ultimately, despite Kaitlyn’s dedication to tonsil hockey, The Bachelorette found a way to fold her exuberant mouth explorations into its pre-existing understanding of ladylike romance as being mostly chaste. Nick, the man she had slept with, the man with whom she had so much intense chemistry she could never stop talking about that chemistry, was sent home, thus dealing a blow to pre-rose-ital sex.

Each date should entail an intimate setting consisting of you, your love … and a plethora of cameramen ready to capture every moment and ensure authenticity, soon to be shared with millions to test your relationship’s strength. Though the show didn’t address the incident at all, the late-night host took it upon himself to talk about it on his show early Tuesday morning. “I think you are the first bachelorette ever to accidentally reveal the ending to the show,” Kimmel said to Kaitlyn, cuddled on the couch with Shawn through most of the interview. “I actually felt really bad.

Shawn recalled panicking when he picked up his phone a few minutes later and saw hundreds of pictures of his face on Twitter. “I started having a panic attack…I couldn’t breathe,” he said, automatically assuming he sent the snap. In the context of The Bachelorette, where up until then sex was like the sun, shining down on everyone, but never to be looked at directly, Nick’s comments were rude, sour, and intended to shame. Nick, more than anyone, embodied the grossness of The Bachelorette’s sex issues, in which men can happily have sex with woman for a game show, but women should only ever make love, if that. The disdainful—but attention-getting!—public reaction to Nick may have pushed the producers to provide a season edited, relatively positively, around a woman who wants to get her kiss on.

And so, instead, he got his heart smashed: Kaitlyn allowed him to begin his proposal preamble before dumping him, the ultimate humiliation The Bachelorette has available to it. But by losing, a version of the point Nick had so grossly made to Andi one season ago, that a Bachelorette really shouldn’t be sleeping around, won. Kaitlyn ended up picking the guy, Shawn, she had not slept with (or maybe she did; they didn’t tell us on camera, anyway), the guy who had unhappily borne her promiscuity.

If you happen to be in an open relationship with one woman — and 24 other men — the only way to show that you’re truly “the one” is constantly to threaten to leave if she doesn’t threaten a billion-dollar franchise in order to reassure you of her feelings.
