The Bachelorette 11 The Bachelorette's eleventh-season runner-up Nick Viall confesses he absolutely didn't think there was a chance Kaitlyn Bristowe was going to reject him at the final Rose Ceremony.

And there's one major reason why: Bristowe said, "I love you," to Viall more than once.

"I felt very fortunate at the end for the validation [Kaitlyn] gave me," Viall told former "The Bacheloretee star Ali Fedotowsky in a video posted on her blog.

When asked flat out if he told Bristowe he loved her, Viall replied, "Yeah, we told each other -- a bunch of times."

"I was really lucky, I mean, obviously there's the fantasy suite, but I was also really lucky that she invested a lot of extra time. We really enjoyed our private time together. At the time, I was very surprised because she's not allowed to say [I love you] even, technically, in private," he said.

Fedotowsky explained when she was the Bachelorette, show producers demanded she not tell any guy she loved him in case she changed her mind.

"Yeah, so knowing it's not an unwritten rule, it's an actual rule..." Viall began.

"So she had told me in the fantasy suite and she had told me [I love you] after I met her parents. So, again, what can you do in that environment? Do you say, 'Do you really? Are you sure?' No, you're just going to say, 'Okay, I'm going to trust that that's how they feel.'"

While Viall owns the fact he was "very much" in love with Bristowe and she's "a great person," she broke his heart.

"Obviously, I wish she would've handled a lot of things different towards the end, but I know Kaitlyn is someone who very much lives in the moment and maybe to a fault sometimes... It sucked... I never thought in a million years [I'd get dumped]," the software salesman explained.

Viall considered contacting Bristowe because he had her phone number thanks to their pre-existing relationship, but he ultimately decided to just move on with his life.

"We didn't communicate at all. The days following sucked. You wake up with that gut-wrenching feeling, but every day gets a little bit better," Viall noted.

The runner-up doesn't regret going on the show, but he admitted it's "hard to say" whether he'd do it all over again.

"You can't regret every risk that doesn't work out. I'm not going to pretend that I didn't feel foolish. I'm the guy -- I feel like I'm now this really unfortunate Trivial Pursuit question -- the guy who just takes second all the time," Viall laughed.

Show Update News : 'Big Brother' HoH Vanessa Rousso makes big move against the house to blindside and nominate Jason Roy
Big Brother 17 Big Brother's Head of Household Vanessa Rousso determined the week's two official eviction nominations following the Power of Veto competition during Wednesday night's broadcast on CBS.

Big Brother's sixteenth episode began with Vanessa being upset about having to take "a blood bath." She was going to be, yet again, responsible for evicting someone in the house via backdooring Austin Matelson. 

James Huling wanted his alliance to know he had done everything possible to throw the Battle of the Block competition, however, Liz Nolan wasn't buying it. She told Austin that James had contributed nothing to the challenge, and then Austin began worrying there was a plan in action he wasn't a part of -- which was true.

Vanessa and Shelli Poole started to regret not telling Liz about the plan and having her in on it because, if she's bitter about it, she could go after them once Austin's gone. Austin thought Steve Moses was the backdoor target all along. He was still confident in the fact he was working with Vanessa.

Meanwhile, Liz loved spending time with Austin but she didn't see him in a romantic light. On the flipside, Austin admitted he was falling in love with Liz. He even snuck a kiss when she least expected it.

Shelli advised Vanessa to tell Liz about getting rid of Austin after the Power of Veto competition.

HoH Vanessa, the nominees Clay Honeycutt and Becky Burgess, and randomly-selected players Shelli, John McGuire and Liz all participated in the PoV competition. Vanessa worried Liz would win it and then keep the nominations the same.

In the end, Clay won the PoV, making Becky cry because she didn't want to stay up on the chopping block.

Vanessa then talked to Liz privately with Shelli in the room about Austin. Liz said she was aware of the fact Austin had informed Jason Roy about the "Twin Twist" in the off-chance Jason won HoH and had power. Liz explained Austin was only trying to keep her safe.

However, Vanessa pointed out that Austin had made a plan with Jason to get rid of Julia Nolan and take Liz as far as possible into the game. Liz later told the cameras Austin had made a foolish move in talking to Jason, but she knew Austin would never do anything to jeopardize her or her sister's game.

Shelli felt Liz trusted Austin more than herself and Vanessa, who all had her back. Liz told the two girls that Austin was obsessed with her and keeping her safe was all that it was about. Shelli and Vanessa thought about how targeting Austin as a result would make them down a number in their alliance. They'd ultimately lose a vote on their side.

Vanessa therefore decided to give Austin a chance to explain himself before putting the backdoor plan into motion.

Vanessa told Austin that Liz was "target of the year" because she was in a "showmance" and "twinmance." Austin said he was falling in love with her, and then Vanessa called him out for wanting to go after Julia. Vanessa told Austin it was a big mistake, and he apologized, saying he should've never trusted Jason but he never planned to betray Vanessa or their alliance.

Vanessa started crying because she thought they were great friends. Austin begged Vanessa not to put him on the chopping block. He promised her that he would never go after her or go against her. He reiterated how he was just playing emotionally because he was scared of losing Liz.

Vanessa understood but was angry because she had gotten the whole house to team up against Austin. However, Shelli and Clay agreed that it was in their alliance's best interest to keep Austin around. Vanessa knew that if she got rid of Austin as promised, no one would go after her the following week. Clay argued it was necessary to keep an ally in the game.

Vanessa was so torn. She started thinking about getting rid of Jason because he was such a smart, strategic player. She also thought that. without him, Jason's alliance would crumble.

At the PoV meeting, Clay opted to use the PoV on himself, taking himself off the chopping block. Vanessa then named Jason her replacement nominee. Although she complimented him numerous times, saying he's an incredible person, Jason was livid and told the cameras Vanessa is a "scumbag b-tch."

Vanessa felt horrible to see the look of defeat in Jason's eyes. She was beginning to realize winning the game comes at a high cost.

Jackie Ibarra was not happy with Vanessa, especially since Vanessa had been the force behind kicking her closest ally Jeff Weldon out of the house. Austin was thrilled because Jason had "manipulated and humiliated" him. Meg, on the other hand, called Vanessa's move the ultimate betrayal.

Features & Interviews : 'The Bachelorette's Nick Viall: How would he feel about being the next Bachelor?
The Bachelorette 11 The Bachelorette runner-up Nick Viall was rejected by Kaitlyn Bristowe, who accepted a marriage proposal from Shawn Booth, during Monday night's Season 11 finale of The Bachelorette on ABC.

Viall became a runner-up once more, as Andi Dorfman dumped him for Josh Murray on The Bachelorette's tenth season. But it's not necessarily a fairy tale for Booth and Bristowe either. The couple has to deal with cyber bullies and the aftermath of a very controversial season.

During a Tuesday conference call, Viall talked to reporters about his experience on The Bachelorette and his heartwrenching almost-proposal. Below is a portion of his interview. Check Reality TV World's The Bachelorette page for more.

Was there something you were thinking about that you really wanted to tell Kaitlyn on After the Final Rose but didn't?

Nick Viall:  I mean, again, it's live TV, right?  So there's only so much time.  Honestly, the only thing I really wanted to say to Kaitlyn is like I wish her the best.  And, you know, that despite frustrations I had with her about how she handled things, I don't have any ill will towards her.

Again, I didn't come on AFR for closure last night.  Listen, I would have -- like I said, I think the only thing is, I think I would have preferred her, instead of trying to explain why she made the decision, I didn't really think there was an explanation.  I think I would have preferred her just say, "Hey, I wish I didn't do it.  I'm sorry."

And I think if I was hoping for anything, it was more that she would say that.  And, you know, I think it was a little disappointing that she tried to justify it by saying, "Well, there's no good way, so I decided to that, because last year, Andi broke up with you a different way."  It's almost like I needed a variety of how people end their relationship with me.

But so, that was a bit disappointing.  But other than that, there's nothing else that I really -- I don't think I would have asked her anything differently behind closed doors.

The Bachelor, Bachelorette community is really small.  Is there anybody else who's been on a previous season or on Bachelor in Paradise or any of the other franchise shows that you'd be interested in getting to know?

Nick Viall:  No one comes to mind.  I mean, it's always nice to meet people from previous seasons.  Obviously, there's this kind of bond you have with people, whether it's female or male.  And I have been able to meet a handful of people.  It's always nice to meet them.

It's ironic that with Kaitlyn, things happened the way they did, because, you know, I was always aware of the kind of cliche that, you know, a lot of show alums kind of hook up, or get together.  And that wasn't something I was looking to do.  And, again, it happened with Kaitlyn, but you know, it was very unexpected. 

And we hit it off.  And that's what happened.  But that's certainly not something I'm looking to do, or have an interest in doing, and no one specific comes to mind.  But I had enjoyed meeting the few people I've gotten to know, and I'm sure I'll continue to get to know more people.  It's always fun to talk about that mutual connection that you have in terms of the Bachelor family.

Did your family say anything to you about the possibility of being the next The Bachelor star?  What are their thoughts about you going through this type of thing all over again if the opportunity presents itself?

Nick Viall:  Yeah, I mean, you know, it's not easy to do, right?  And in general -- I was just talking to a friend before I got on the call with you about that aspect of it in terms of other people who are affected.  But I'm so lucky to have the family I have.  They're just so loving and supportive of me. 

And they always trust that I make the best decisions for myself.  And, you know, that being said, I'm very mindful to appreciate how my decisions affect them.  I know how much they love me and support me.  And, you know, it is not an easy process. 

If given the opportunity to be considered, you know, for the Bachelor, that is something that I would [think about] -- how my [family] views it.  And I do know that if I were asked, and if I were to decide to do that, all the more reasons why I would take it very seriously. 

Because it wouldn't be, you know, it's not easy.  And there's a lot of people that are involved.  And since I have such a large family, there's that many more people to consider. 

So, again, I was so glad that they were able to come out and support me last night, and just kind of be the great supporting family that they are.  But yeah, it's not always easy.  And I just really appreciate their love and support and being there for me throughout this process.

So, just to clarify, your family really hasn't said anything to you on the topic?

Nick Viall:  No, no.  It's more like, you know, when I told them that I was going to take this risk and go back on, it was like there's a lot of reluctance because they know there's no guarantees. And there are risks.  There are also other variables in terms of -- for me, like I said, it's nice to be liked, right?  But I always just want to be myself. And I'm aware that I can't please everyone. 

Being a fan favorite or being the most likeable person on the show is in no way a priority for me.  It's nice, but, you know, my actions in that world were always going to be about the relationship, you know, with Andi or Kaitlyn.  And my mom, being the protective mother, wants everyone in the world to say very nice things about me.

If one person doesn't, it hurts her feelings.  And I just kind of remind my mom that, like, those people don't know me.  Everyone has opinions.  And as long as the people who know me best know and respect my decisions and support me, that's all I care about.

And that's more difficult, but I think I've gotten used to being in the public eye and having people have opinions.  And my parents have gotten used to it.  And they're less affected it by now.  But, you know, certainly, they will support me in whatever decision I have. 

I will listen to their advice, but yeah, they're not like, "Heck no, never do it," or anything like that.  They're -- they just want me to make sure that I'm doing it for the right reasons and that I know what I'm getting myself into and then, you know, whatever I decide, I'll always have their support.

People News : Kiptyn Locke welcomes first child with girlfriend Samm Murphy
The Bachelorette 5 Kiptyn Locke, a former The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad contestant, has become a father.

Locke has welcomed his first child, a baby boy named Koltyn Murphy, with girlfriend Samm Murphy.

Koltyn was born on July 16, after which Locke, 37, shared a photo of himself on Instagram with his son. The new dad captioned the photo with a beautiful message.

"I promise to be there for you, always. To put you first, support you and be someone you can count on -- no matter the situation, time or place -- I'll be there for you. I promise to live my life in a way that gives you an example of a good man and positive role model. I will teach you to respect, appreciate and love a woman. To open doors, take your first bite second, and be a source of strength, security and caring," Locke wrote.

"I will share with you the importance of passion in all aspects of life: sport, relationships, work, your personal interests and beyond as you show up to each and every day. And when you find your passion I will support you, encourage you and stand behind you no matter where you find it. Your happiness will always be enough to make me happy. You will never be alone in this world."

I'll teach you to never underestimate the value of humor, never compromise your principles, and always remember the importance of family, friends, loyalty, integrity and character."

"I promise to introduce you to many of this big world's greatest treasures and then encourage you as you forge your own path and become your own man. Above all else, I promise you love, unconditional love each and every day until I take my last breath. Welcome to the world, son."

Locke signed the letter "Dad" and wished his child a "happy birthday."

Shortly afterwards, Locke posted a collage of photos on Instagram of his son's first week in the world.

"Little man is just cruising through his first week of life. Eating sleeping, smiling and flexing," wrote Locke, who revealed the pregnancy news back in March.

"Countless hours in my arms or sleeping in my lap and I'm freaking myself out on how long I can just stare at him. So many unknowns in this experience and journey. I'm feeling beyond lucky that he is healthy and loves his Dad and his Mom so much. Can't wait for the adventures ahead. #Minime #whatishedreamingabout #Flexing #Smiling #Clippernation."

Locke finished as the runner-up on the fifth season of The Bachelorette starring Jillian Harris in 2009. He then went on to appear on the first season of Bachelor Pad and date Tenley Mohlzan, who will be starring on Bachelor in Paradise's second edition this summer.

Locke later met Murphy, 29, at a charity event. She has her own medical distribution company.

Features & Interviews : Kaitlyn Bristowe on 'The Bachelorette' winner Shawn Booth: There wasn't even a chance I'd pick another guy
The Bachelorette 11 Kaitlyn Bristowe selected Shawn Booth on The Bachelorette and therefore dumped runner-up Nick Viall during Monday night's Season 11 finale on ABC.

Shawn ended up proposing marriage to Kaitlyn, which she was thrilled to accept. The newly-engaged pair is now embracing their relationship in public and dealing with the aftermath of a very controversial season.

During a Tuesday conference call, Kaitlyn and Shawn talked to reporters about their experience on the show, their love and what's next. Below is a portion of their interview. Check Reality TV World's The Bachelorette page for more.

Kaitlyn, you said throughout the show that Shawn was "the one."  Was there even a chance of you picking someone else?  Or was it always Shawn, regardless of how strong your feelings were for Nick or for someone else?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  Yeah, it was always Shawn.

Was there a moment from the season that you wish viewers would've seen but didn't?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  Yes, there's a few.

Shawn Booth:  There's a few of them.

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  We'll pick one.  There's a few.  We'll pick one.  For me, it would be when we had like a big moment on top of a boat in New York.

Shawn Booth:  Yeah.

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  And we, like, were slow dancing.  And I feel like we really fell in love in that moment.

Shawn Booth:  Yeah, I was going to say the same exact thing.  That was a perfect night.  And I think we were both like, "Yes, this is real.  This is happening."  It was amazing.

How was it for you, Shawn, watching the family date back and seeing how Kaitlyn's family favored you?

Shawn Booth:  Yes, that's -- I just watched my part with her family.  And it felt great to hear them say the kind of things that they did.

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  They loved him.

Shawn Booth:  They were amazing.  And it's so nice.  Now after the show, building a relationship with them and being close to them -- they're amazing people, so.  That's great.

So last night, it was really sweet, Shawn, when you defended Kaitlyn about the cyberbullying and everything that she experienced throughout the show.  How was that for both of you going through that?

Shawn Booth:  Yeah, I mean, there's obviously been some tough times.  And people can be pretty --

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  Harsh.

Shawn Booth:  Yeah, pretty harsh, but like I said, now that I'm able to stand by here and tell everybody, you know, how I feel and support her, she's giving me just as much support as I have for her.  So I think we're stronger because of it.  And now, we just want to take on the world as one, and we're looking forward to it.

Kaitlyn, how did it feel to be separated from Shawn after the show when you were experiencing all that hate on social media?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  Yeah, I think that was definitely hard for me, because I just wanted him by my side and him to stand up for me, because I knew he wanted to as well.  So I would just call him all the time, being like, "Oh, my gosh, this is happening." 

But I think for the most part, we handled it pretty well.  There's just a couple like really harsh comments.  And now that people know that he's beside me, I don't think they'll be saying it anymore.

Shawn, is your mom is chomping at the bit to meet Kaitlyn?

Shawn Booth:  Yeah.

When will you plan to bring her into Connecticut and what do you want to show her here?

Shawn Booth:  Right, yeah.  Definitely would love to introduce her to my mother within the next month at some point and just be able to hang out with each other and get to know one another.  So no major plans or destinations or anything like that. 

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  But it will happen.

Shawn Booth:  But it will happen soon.

Kaitlyn, are you looking forward to meeting your future mother-in-law?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  I can't wait.  I'm so excited to meet her.

Shawn, you've gone from nobody knowing you to basically being a celebrity.  How are you handling all that?  Because I know you guys have been going non-stop since this all broke last night.

Shawn Booth:  Yeah, I think it's funny when people try and like say "celebrity" and "famous" and all that.  I just don't get that, but it's -- yeah, it's a little crazy.

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  It's overwhelming.

Shawn Booth:  It's insane, but yeah, we're just so overwhelmed right now with everything, and just so excited for the show to be over, and just to start living these normal lives, and be with each other.  So it's -- we've been on this [ride] for a while.

What's the very first thing you planned to do after you're done with this whole press thing?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  Nap.  Nap and then go on a date.  We can't wait to just go for dinner and have a date night.

Would you guys invite Ben Higgins to your wedding?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  Of course.

Shawn Booth:  Yes, absolutely.

Features & Interviews : 'The Bachelorette' runner-up Nick Viall: I am excited to get back out there and meet a great girl
The Bachelorette 11 The Bachelorette runner-up Nick Viall was rejected by Kaitlyn Bristowe, who accepted a marriage proposal from Shawn Booth, during Monday night's Season 11 finale of The Bachelorette on ABC.

Viall became a runner-up once more, as Andi Dorfman dumped him for Josh Murray on The Bachelorette's tenth season. But it's not necessarily a fairy tale for Booth and Bristowe either. The couple has to deal with cyber bullies and the aftermath of a very controversial season.

During a Tuesday conference call, Viall talked to reporters about his experience on The Bachelorette and his heartwrenching almost-proposal. Below is a portion of his interview. Check back with us soon for more.

I wanted to talk a little bit about what it's been like for you since the show.  I mean, when you go out, are women approaching you and trying to ask you about the show?  Are your friends sort of all over you, trying to get details?  What has the past three months been like?

Nick Viall:  Sure.  I mean, as far as my friends, I mean, I'm so lucky to have the tight knit and great group of friends that I have.  And they're kind of used to it by now.  So you know, when I'm with my friends, it's just like old times, right?  We don't kind of focus on the show. 

We just do what we've always done and enjoy each other's company.  But yeah, having been on it now, you know, for a while on both seasons, that it's kind of interesting.  I don't know if I'll ever really get used to it, because I just don't see myself as the guy I've always been.

But yeah, I get noticed a lot, and you know, take a lot of pictures.  Most people are really nice.  There are some people who are curious about kind of the behind-the-scenes of the show.  And people seem to be really curious about me, you know, in terms of -- which I find kind of fascinating.

Some people, again, like they'll come up.  And they're fans.  Some people come up and they're -- you kind of tell that they probably aren't fans of me, but they're kind of enamored.  And they want to like see what I'm like.  It's just kind of interesting.

So I would say most people are very gracious and very nice and just a little bit curious.  And, you know, I just try to be pleasant and answer what I can.  And I don't try to take it too seriously, or get a bit ahead about it. I just, you know, am gracious and take it with a grain of salt.

Well, on that note, a lot of women on social media, especially Twitter, have been pretty excited that you weren't chosen because I think that these are women who would like to date you as well.  So I know you're not dating anybody specifically right now, but are you dating in the general sense?

Nick Viall:  Yeah, I mean, you got to be really careful, obviously, while the show's airing.  So, that being said, you know, when things ended, the last thing in my mind was dating.  It's been three months, right?  So I think the first month and a half, two months, were really just about focusing, and moving forward, and getting past the breakup with Kaitlyn.

You know, and I've been out.  I've met with friends, but I hadn't really been on any dates, because I have to be careful.  But I also know that it's over, I am excited to get back out there and meet a great girl.

And, you know, listen, I know she's out there.  You just got to be patient, right?  And I'm someone who --even though I've been the guy who's kind of gone on TV for love -- I'm really just a big believer in letting things play out.  It'll happen when it happens.  And, you know, I'm open to meeting people.  I'm excited to be out there.  I'm excited to hopefully find that person when the time is right.

When we saw you on the After the Final Rose with Andi, you seemed devastated and truly heartbroken, whereas this time with Kaitlyn, you definitely seemed a lot more reserved.  I think more angry than sad.  Can you speak about that a little?  Were you as upset with Kaitlyn's breakup as you were with Andi Dorfman or how were they different?

Nick Viall:  Yeah, it was very different.  And it's kind of hard to explain.  I will say that the breakup of Kaitlyn was far more -- it was far more difficult at first.  And, you know, it's funny, like, I might not be directly answering your question, so I apologize.

But people have asked me what it's like to watch the show, right?  And so, I remember watching it with Andi.  And it wasn't as difficult for me to watch it.  For example, when she was on dates with other guys and making out with other guys.  It was far more difficult this time watching it back, which I did. 

And I think it was because, you know, with Andi, my only relationship with Andi was inside that realm of The Bachelor.  And with Kaitlyn, you know, I knew her before, right?  We never met in person.  We had built this relationship.  And it was just -- it was more difficult.

And so, at the same time, I think because of that, you know, trust being broken, and how things played out, and Kaitlyn taking me all the way to a proposal, I think has also and in some ways, allowed me to accept it. 

I really didn't have any questions about Kaitlyn.  There weren't really any unknowns.  It was like once she made that decision, it was like, "Yeah, I'm heartbroken and sad, but you made that decision, and I need to accept it and move on."  And I think with Andi having had gone through that process, I think there was a lot of confusion. 

And, you know, I hadn't had a chance to speak with her.  I really felt like I didn't know what the heck happened, and I think it was harder for me to just let go of it.  And I think I was really just anticipating After the Final Rose to get that closure from Andi. 

I feel like with Kaitlyn, I didn't really need After the Final Rose to move forward.  And I think by the time yesterday happened, you know, I had already accepted her decision.  I didn't need any specific answers to get closure from her, if that makes sense. So is this -- I feel like it was just a more real experience, just because of the pre-existing relationship.

Features & Interviews : 'The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth: If we weren't going to work out, we would've split already
The Bachelorette 11 The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe selected Shawn Booth and therefore dumped runner-up Nick Viall during Monday night's Season 11 finale on ABC.

Shawn ended up proposing marriage to Kaitlyn, which she was thrilled to accept. The newly-engaged pair is now embracing their relationship in public and dealing with the aftermath of a very controversial season.

During a Tuesday conference call, Kaitlyn and Shawn talked to reporters about their experience on the show, their love and what's next. Below is a portion of their interview. Check back with Reality TV World soon for more.

Shawn, the night before the proposal, you guys were together.  And Kaitlyn started talking to you about how you'll feel watching the season back.  At that point, I felt like you were all but confirmed it was you.  How confident did you feel?  And did you feel that way the night before you proposed to Kaitlyn?

Shawn Booth:  Yeah, I felt that way, you know, the entire season.  And definitely felt the way that night.  I'm very confident and woke up feeling the comments I had felt the entire season was just so excited to be able to get to the house to see her and get down on one knee.

Have you guys started discussing wedding plans or dates or anything like that?

Shawn Booth:  Right now, we're just really enjoying the engagement.  We've been looking forward to this day for a long time.  And we just want to take some time and hang out, relax with our friends and our family.  And we are kind of laid back people, just going with the flow. 

So we're going to focus on figuring out where to live, you know, visit Nashville, go to Vancouver, and kind of take care of that stuff the next month or two, and then start making some plans.

All couples have their tiffs.  Have you guys had any arguments?  And if so, what were they about?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  We argued the other day about who was going to take out the garbage.

Shawn Booth:  Yeah, I was little upset.

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  It was a big one. (Laughs)

Shawn Booth:  Yeah.  Yeah, I mean, a couple tiffs here and there, but nothing too crazy.  And we've kind of helped each other throughout this entire process and have been a support system for one another, which has been great.  And we're definitely stronger, because of all the [ups and downs].

If you had to live together, who leaves the toothpaste out?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  I think we're both pretty, like, tidy people.

You mentioned that you want to go to Vancouver.  What do you plan to do there?  And also, would you get married there?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  I honestly think Shawn is going to fall in love with Vancouver.  I love it there.  And what am I going to do there?  I don't know.

The Grouse Grind trail maybe?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  Yeah, actually, yes.  I just did that the other day and was telling him all about it, because obviously, he's a very fit human being.  So yeah, I'm going to take him to the Grouse Grind. 

Probably do a lot of things, like go paddleboarding, lots of stuff outside, check out lots of cool restaurants, and just hang out with friends.  We actually have a fishing trip coming up.  And we got a box suite at one of the soccer games.  So we've got a lot going on.

And would you get married there?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  In Vancouver?  Oh, yeah.  Yeah, I would get married there.

Shawn Booth:  Either there or Vegas with Elvis, we're still trying to figure that out.

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  Yeah.  One or the other.

What does life look like for the two of you now?  And are you leaning towards one or the other as far as where to live, Nashville or Canada?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  I think we love the idea of having a summer home in British Colombia or Vancouver and living in Nashville.  I think that sounds like a pretty sweet deal.

Shawn Booth:  Yeah, I think that might be the best.

A lot of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette couples don't make it.  How are you guys going to ensure that you stay together?

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  I think we already wouldn't have made it by now.  I think we're very confident in our relationship.  And I mean, we don't see it not working.

Shawn Booth:  Right, yeah.  We're not, you know, focused on those relationships or anything like that.

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  We don't care about the track record.

Shawn Booth:  Yeah.

Kaitlyn Bristowe:  We're just focusing on our relationship.

Shawn Booth:  Exactly.  And we're very confident with what we have.

Features & Interviews : Nick Viall: I don't focus my energy on whether people think I'm 'The Bachelorette' villain
The Bachelorette 11 Nick Viall was rejected by The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe, who accepted a marriage proposal from Shawn Booth, during Monday night's Season 11 finale of The Bachelorette on ABC.

Viall became a runner-up once more, as Andi Dorfman dumped him for Josh Murray on The Bachelorette's tenth season. But it's not necessarily a fairy tale for Booth and Bristowe either. The couple has to deal with cyber bullies and the aftermath of a very controversial season.

During a Tuesday conference call, Viall talked to reporters about his experience on The Bachelorette and his heartwrenching almost-proposal. Below is a portion of his interview. Check back with us soon for more.

Just wanted to get some more thoughts on your mindset during the proposal and how it felt driving away in the limo.  I mean, I know it wasn't easy, but I just wanted to know if you can elaborate some more and tell me how you felt?

Nick Viall:  I mean, as far as the proposal goes, I mean, kind of watching it back, it's interesting trying to think about, you know, "Should I have known?" -- kind of, like, by the look on her face.  I remember getting out of the limo and being incredibly nervous and she looked incredibly nervous, but I didn't necessarily see that as a bad sign.

And, you know, there was a moment when I first started talking that I got emotional.  And she kind of grabbed my hand and told me it was "okay."  And I kind of took that as a very positive sign.  And then at that point, I was kind of all in, so to speak, in terms of saying what I had to say and pouring my heart out.

You know, I think, when she stops me, obviously, at first is that shock.  And, I really just wanted to keep my composure, and not kind of lose perspective of the moment.  And as far as, you know, the limo ride, I don't -- it was just a lot of shock to be honest.  I didn't really know what to think in the moment.  And it just happened. 

It was kind of a whirlwind.  And obviously, there was, you know, a lot of feelings of, you know, sadness, and anger, and frustration.  And in that moment, yeah, obviously, I think, you know, your kind of realize what happened.  And I think that made me feel like a major fool.  You feel silly, but you know, as time moves on, you kind of get some perspective and you just kind of move forward.

Would you ever do the show again if they asked you to star on The Bachelor?  Is the third time a charm?

Nick Viall:  As far as The Bachelor, I spent the past three months really just focusing on moving forward.  It took a lot out of me.  And, you know, all my energy's been focused on that.  But, you know, I haven't been asked recently after last night.

I think anyone would feel real lucky to be considered.  I mean, it's obviously an incredible opportunity.  You know, but it's one of those things where it's not easy.  I think we've all seen it, you know, with some of the previous leads, that it's a difficult process. 

And it doesn't always work out, but then again, you have some amazing love stories like with [Sean Lowe] and [Catherine Giudici] and [Desiree Hartsock] and [Chris Siegfried] and people like that. So you know, it's one of those things, obviously, I'd have to spend a lot of time with my family and friends and talk about it. 

But I can't say that I wouldn't, but it's certainly something, you know, that I would have to take into serious consideration, because I want to take it seriously in all those things.  And I really want to do it only if I felt like it could really work for me, so.

So I know you spoke about if they asked you to come on The Bachelor, but would you ever consider Bachelor in Paradise?  And also, are you dating anyone right now?

Nick Viall:  I'm currently not dating anyone.  And I just don't think Bachelor in Paradise is for me.  And, yeah, I don't think I would ever do Bachelor in Paradise.

You came into this season with everyone judging you from what happened on Andi Dorfman's season.  And now that the show is over, do you think you're still viewed as the villain, or do you think that you were able to show everyone you're a good guy?

Nick Viall:  You know, I don't know.  I really tried to not spend a lot of time reading my press clippings and worrying about public perception.  You know, I really did come back only because I had this pre-existing relationship with Kaitlyn.  And I knew, you know, I was going to be in the show.  And I know people would have their opinions.

And I certainly hope, right?  You know, no one's perfect.  Obviously, I make mistakes.  I've made my mistakes.  And I'm sure there's things that people like about me and things people don't like about me.  And, you know, I'm okay with all of that.  Right, I just hope that when I was on either season, I was myself. 

I was genuine.  I meant what I said and the things that I did.  And I was, you know, true to myself.  And so, I hope that for the people who maybe weren't [fans of me] last time, I hope maybe they got to see a different side of me. 

And I hope maybe they, if nothing else, believe that my intentions for coming back were very genuine and sincere and that I really was just there for Kaitlyn.  And, you know, I like being liked.  Who doesn't?  But at the same time, I am more focused on being myself, being true to myself.

Features & Interviews : 'The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe asks fiance Shawn Booth if HE wants to date potential Bachelor Ben Higgins
The Bachelorette 11 The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe selected Shawn Booth and therefore dumped runner-up Nick Viall during Monday night's Season 11 finale on ABC.

Shawn ended up proposing marriage to Kaitlyn, which she was thrilled to accept. The newly-engaged pair is now embracing their relationship in public and dealing with the aftermath of a very controversial season.

During a Tuesday conference call, Kaitlyn and Shawn talked to reporters about their experience on the show, their love and what's next. Below is a portion of their interview. Check back with Reality TV World soon for more.

Kaitlyn, when did you know for certain that you were going to pick Shawn?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: I think I hoped it from Day 1 and it just ended up that I was right.

What was it about each other that gave you the feeling you had found your future husband/wife?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: Even if he says he was really nervous, he just had this calming presence about him and I just felt comfortable around him already. It helped that he smelled delicious. His looks helped him out a little too. And once I sat down with him a couple times, I saw he had a personality and sense of humor and kind of seemed like the perfect little package.

Shawn Booth: As soon as I got out of that limo and we were just holding hands, it was something I never felt before. So we definitely had that immediate connection, and I think, like Kaitlyn was saying, we hoped we would end up with each other at the final day. We fought through everything and here we are now. And we're as happy as can be.

Kaitlyn, why didn't you stop Nick earlier in his final Rose Ceremony speech? You waited until he actually took the engagement ring out of his pocket.

Kaitlyn Bristowe: I mean, I'm sorry, I don't really know. I think I was just giving him a chance to express how he felt and I didn't really know how or when to stop him, because I knew no matter what, it was going to be the worst thing ever.

Now that everyone knows Shawn is the winner, could you explain the Snapchat?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: So, basically, there's only a few amount of people who knew we were together, so we were sending a Snapchat to one of the producers and I accidentally made it go to my "Story" instead of to the producer. And we felt sick to our stomach about it and had mild heart attacks. We felt really bad.

What are your thoughts on whom the next Bachelor should be?

Shawn Booth: Ben Higgins!

Kaitlyn Bristowe: We both agree Ben H.

Why Ben H.?

Shawn Booth: He's just an amazing guy, one of the nicest people I've ever met with the biggest heart. He deserves nothing but the best. And we, you know, had a special bond on the show. We were rooming with each other every night and just supporting one another. I think he's as genuine as they come. I think he'd make the perfect Bachelor.

Kaitlyn Bristowe: Do you want to be with Ben?

Shawn Booth: Yes. (Laughs)

Kaitlyn Bristowe: (Laughs)

Shawn Booth: I think so.

What was your favorite moment together this season? Was there a favorite date that stands out in your mind?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: One of my favorite moments this season was on the first night. I just had that feeling that I really wanted to feel, because I didn't know if I was going to get it or not. And I did. So that was one of my favorite moments.

Shawn Booth: I had a few favorite moments. Definitely sitting outside the log cabin by the fire just on a normal date. We let our guards down and I told her that I was falling in love with her. I think that night was very special.

How does that ring on your finger feel, Kaitlyn?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: It's heavy! I love it.

Features & Interviews : 'The Bachelorette' couple Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth -- Would they televise their wedding?
The Bachelorette 11 The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe selected Shawn Booth and therefore dumped runner-up Nick Viall during Monday night's Season 11 finale on ABC.

Booth ended up proposing marriage to Bristowe, which she was thrilled to accept. The newly-engaged pair is now embracing their relationship in public and dealing with the aftermath of a very controversial season.

Bristowe and Booth talked to Reality TV World on Monday about their experience on the show, their love and what's next. Below is a portion of their interview. Click here and here to read more.

Reality TV World: Do you think you guys would consider/enjoy having your wedding televised on ABC?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: We would consider it.

Shawn Booth: Yeah, we would consider it. It's something we'd talk about.

Kaitlyn Bristowe: We'd definitely sit down and have a conversation about it.

Reality TV World: What are your plans career-wise now, especially since you're considering a move? Kaitlyn, will you continue teaching dance or maybe consider a job in entertainment thanks to the fame the show brought you? And Shawn, will you be sticking with personal training?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: I don't think I will take the entertainment route. I don't know. I think we both are involved with fitness, and I think that's something we could possibly do together as well.

Shawn Booth: Right. And that's also something we're going to figure out in the next month.

Kaitlyn Bristowe: We need to figure out where we're going to live first, and then decide.

Reality TV World: I remember reading something Ali Fedotowsky wrote, that the Bachelorette tends to pretty much know her Final 2 or 3 guys right from the start and she pretty much has to go through the motions just to get to that end point. Kaitlyn, did you ever feel that way, especially since you knew how you felt about Shawn early on?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: Yeah, I think you can tell who you have the strongest connections with right off the bat.

Reality TV World: The format was really different this time around with you starring as the Bachelorette. Do you feel you lost something by not being able to visit your Final 2 guys' actual hometowns? Since their families were flown out to Utah, you didn't really get to see them in their element or insight into what their daily lives might be like.

Kaitlyn Bristowe: No, I think I did see him in his environment because he was with his family. I don't know what we would've done differently if we were in their city. I think it would've been the same.

Reality TV World: Were you surprised you didn't travel more this season? It seemed like you were in Ireland forever. (Laughs)

Kaitlyn Bristowe: I wasn't mad about it. I love Ireland, and honestly, did you see the places I went last season? (Laughs) There was still a lot of travel this time around for me I thought.

Reality TV World: Were you happy to have the final Rose Ceremony at The Bachelor mansion instead of some crazy exotic destination or something? Was that the dream proposal scenario for you?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: I just liked it because it was where I met Shawn.

Shawn Booth: Yeah, I loved that.

Features & Interviews : 'The Bachelorette' runner-up Nick Viall: My family thought I was joking when I told them Kaitlyn Bristowe didn't pick me
The Bachelorette 11 The Bachelorette bachelor Nick Viall was rejected by Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, who accepted a marriage proposal from Shawn Booth, during Monday night's Season 11 finale of The Bachelorette on ABC.

Viall became a runner-up once more, as Andi Dorfman dumped him for Josh Murray on The Bachelorette's tenth season. But it's not necessarily a fairy tale for Booth and Bristowe either. The couple has to deal with cyber bullies and the aftermath of a very controversial season.

On Monday, Viall talked to Reality TV World about his experience on The Bachelorette and heartwrenching almost-proposal. Below is a portion of his interview. Click here to read more.

Reality TV World: Shawn got the first impression rose on Day 1. Do you think entering the show on that first night would've made any type of difference this season? You kept pointing out that coming into the season several weeks in put you at a disadvantage because you'd never get the same amount of time with Kaitlyn all the other men received.

Nick Viall: I definitely don't think it would've made a difference. I think me pointing out that I had less time was more, you know, when I showed up, a lot of the conversations Kaitlyn and I had behind closed doors was about -- she'd be like, "I know you. I know you're not going to ask me just for the sake of asking because you're at the end, as far as a proposal goes."

And I think she wanted to know, "Would I be willing and able to get engaged if it ended up being me?" So, a lot of our conversations, she kept bringing that up, the engagement. And my whole point was, "Hey, if you want me to be ready to get engaged, I need more -- it's really all just about time."

There were some disadvantages about showing up late, but again, I also got to know her probably better than any guy there because of the hours we spent talking in our previous relationship. So, it kind of works both ways. But I certainly don't think anything we could've done or I could've done would've changed her opinion or her decision.

I think she chose Shawn because she felt he was the best fit. And, you know, I think it would be unfair to their relationship to suggest that if anything different happened, things would've gone a different way.

Reality TV World: Did it surprise you to see your family so upset and nervous about you bringing Kaitlyn home as shown before you walked in the door on your hometown date? And how did your family react when they learned you didn't end up with Kaitlyn? They seemed to love her but maybe they lost some respect for her after that final Rose Ceremony?

Nick Viall: Yeah, well my family knew we had a pre-existing relationship. Like myself, I think my parents thought that if I went [on The Bachelorette], I would come back right away or we'd probably end up together. I think maybe when I watched it back, I was a little surprised by just how emotional they were. But again, they also understand this world, and in that moment, there are some unknowns, right?

And I think having lived through it, my family was aware that I could walk in with Kaitlyn and be all happy and giddy and in love, and no matter how that day went, it could go in a very different direction, which is what happened.

As far as the reaction, to be perfectly honest, when I first called them, they thought I was joking for the first few minutes. They were quite convinced that we were -- you know, my parents met Kaitlyn six days before the end. And so, there wasn't much time between when she met them to the finale. So, they thought I was joking, and they were sad, upset and hurt. Certainly, they had as much surprise as I did. So.

Reality TV World: Hypothetically speaking, if Britt Nilsson got chosen as the Bachelorette, Kaitlyn would've gone home and I'm sure you would've pursued dating her. If that happened, and Shawn was never in the picture, how do you think things might've ended up? Do you think you would've eventually discovered you weren't a perfect match or something was missing?

Nick Viall: It's really hard to say. Not to sound corny, but I think things have a way or working out. Sometimes, things play out the way they should. I mean, yeah, absolutely. I was very much hoping that they picked Britt. And had they picked Britt, Kaitlyn was planning on coming to Chicago and we were going to meet for the first time in person.

And that didn't happen, and that's obviously why I made the decision that I did. You know, I don't know how it would've worked out. Obviously there would've been the distance, and that's never easy, and we wouldn't have had -- the thing about The Bachelor world is, like, there's such an intensity, which can be great and sometimes misleading, but it does really help to pave and strengthen a relationship in a lot of ways. And we wouldn't have had that.

So, who knows what would've happened. We probably would've talked and hung out, and obviously, I think it's safe to say we would've had that connection that we had when we met. But it's hard to say what would've happened.

I think most important, we know what did happen and things do have a way of working out. So, I think that's what I focus on. I don't spend too much time wondering, "What if?" And that's why I came, right? Because now I don't have to ask that question.

Reality TV World: During The Bachelorette season, reports swirled you were spending a little time with Chris Soules' ex-fiancee Whitney Bischoff, which sparked rumors you were dating. I'd like to give you a chance to address that.

Nick Viall: Yeah, sure. I was out with friends. Whitney and I have a mutual friend in Jaclyn Swartz, who's actually become a very close friend of mine. She was on a previous season. I think it was [Ben Flajnik's]. She's a very close friend of mine and I know she's a friend of Whitney's. It was during a Blackhawk's game.

I was out with my friends and then Whitney stopped by. She had just broken up with Chris. It was my first time meeting her. Again, her and I have mutual friends. It was nice to meet her, and I spent some time talking to her for about 30 minutes. She's a great person. I haven't spoken with her since. We're, at best, acquaintances. There is no way there's anything more than that.

I have nothing but the highest opinion of her from when we met, but I really don't know her too well. It really was just an introduction from a mutual friend that was nothing more than getting to know a fellow Bachelor family person.

Reality TV World: You can't hang out with someone of the opposite sex from The Bachelor family without people jumping to conclusions you're dating. (Laughs)

Nick Viall: (Laughs) Yeah, like a couple of weeks ago, I met Carly Waddell. She was in town visiting and she's friends with Jaclyn, so we got to hang out and again, I think [Mikey Tenerelli] from [Desiree Hartsock]'s season was there. They became friends in Paradise, so I got to meet him. And so, I also got to meet and get to know Chris, who I didn't meet on the show, but he lives in Chicago.

So Carly is a really sweet girl and we became friends. But yeah, it's always funny because just because the other person is a female and I'm talking to her, it doesn't mean we're dating. We're friends. I have a lot of girlfriends whom I'm not, in any way, romantically involved with. So, yeah.

Show Update News : 'America's Got Talent' judges make another round of cuts with guest Marlon Wayans
America's Got Talent 10 America's Got Talent judges, including guest judge Marlon Wayans, advanced seven out of 20 acts to the live shows at Radio City Music Hall during Tuesday night's broadcast on NBC.

The 20 acts, who were some of the best from Season 10's auditions that took place over the course of four weeks, performed again for a studio audience as well as AGT judges Heidi Klum, Howard Stern, Mel B and Howie Mandel.

Wayans was in control of the "golden buzzer," meaning he could automatically advance one fantastic act straight through to the next round without any deliberation.

The seven acts who advanced to the live shows were Oz Pearlman, a 32-year-old magician from New York , NY; Vita Radionova, a 33-year-old contortionist and acrobat from Seattle WA; Mountain Faith Band, a group ages 19-51, who are all tire shop employees; Triple Threat, a trio of 21-year-old male singers from Benton AR; Animation Crew, dancers ages 25-33; Benton Blount, a 36-year-old singer and stay-at-home dad; and Paul Zerdin, a 42-year-old ventriloquist.

Wayans decided to use the "golden buzzer" on Zerdin because his act was "wonderfully orchestrated" and he has a "great joke telling" ability.

The judges therefore chose to cut Honor Roll Skate Crew, ages 19-29, from North Hollywood, CA; Evoke Tap Movement, ages 15-19, from San Diego, CA; The Squad, ages 18-24, from Los Angeles, CA; Oleksiy Mogylnyy, a 34-year-old massage therapist; Johnny Shelton, a 26-year-old from Tampa, FL; and Dana Daniels, a 54-year-old from Orange, CA.

The rest of the acts who got eliminated were Brittney Allen, a 24-year-old retail worker; Paul Blair, a 48-year-old from Las Vegas, NV -- who received four red Xs from the judges -- Pretty Big Movement, ages 25-30, from New York, NY; Stacey Kay, a 27-year-old public speaker; Randy Roberts, a 52-year-old from Key West, FL; and two young girls -- a karate star and dancer who were not identified via on-screen graphics.

Features & Interviews : Nick Viall: I didn't want an explanation from Kaitlyn Bristowe for her mid-proposal dumping
The Bachelorette 11 Nick Viall was rejected by The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe, who accepted a marriage proposal from Shawn Booth, during Monday night's Season 11 finale of The Bachelorette on ABC.

Viall became a runner-up once more, as Andi Dorfman dumped him for Josh Murray on The Bachelorette's tenth season. But it's not necessarily a fairy tale for Booth and Bristowe either. The couple has to deal with cyber bullies and the aftermath of a very controversial season.

On Monday, Viall talked to Reality TV World about his experience on The Bachelorette and his heartwrenching almost-proposal. Below is a portion of his interview. Check back with us soon for more.

Reality TV World: How are you feeling about the breakup now, do you feel you're over it completely or no? And has your opinion of Kaitlyn as a person changed because of the way she handled the final Rose Ceremony?

Nick Viall: I don't know if my overall, you know, as a person, I think Kaitlyn is a great person, right? In terms of my overall, it hasn't gone from once being in love with her and thinking that I want to spend the rest of my life with to thinking she's some bad person. I don't think that at all.

But especially that night, everything kind of changed at that moment. I guess to get to the point of your question, you know, a lot of the feelings I had for her and our relationship were built on this trust that we had from the beginning of our relationship all the way to the end.

And I know she didn't mean anything malicious by it and she didn't have any cruel intentions, but that trust between us was broken in that moment. And I have really focused on that to move forward and to move on.

And while maybe our relationship wasn't quite what I thought it was -- and maybe there are some small things about her I might've been wrong about -- I still think she's a great person and I think she has so many amazing qualities. But at the same time, those actions definitely helped me focus on moving on. Because, you know, that trust that I thought we had definitely went away in that moment.

Reality TV World: It seemed you were very careful with your word choice after Kaitlyn rejected you -- both on the finale and After the Final Rose. Had last season's incident in which you confessed to the world Andi had sex with you not have happened, considering it sort of damaged your reputation, do you think you would've handled this situation differently? Maybe you wouldn't have been as nice?

Nick Viall: Sure, I mean, as far as the whole Andi stuff, I mean, a lot of people had a lot of opinions about last season's AFR, but my intentions were never to shame Andi in any way or call her out. I was caught up in the moment and it was a questions about the feelings I had and what that meant to me in the moment.

And obviously you learn your lesson. Even though I didn't have any cruel intentions with Andi, I think we can all agree it wasn't the best situation to be in. I was kind of stuck in that moment. I think with Kaitlyn, I don't know if I would've changed anything.

I mean, part of me was -- it's been three months, right? And obviously this was the first chance I had to talk to her, but I didn't really see the need of piling on details of our previous relationship before I came, and quite honestly, I wasn't really expecting any answers to change. I assumed Kaitlyn had prepped for what I might ask.

I think my hope was -- and the only unfortunate part of last night -- I was really hoping Kaitlyn wouldn't even give me an explanation. I was really kind of hoping she'd just say, you know, "You're right. I'm sorry. Looking back, I wish I never had let you propose and I'm sorry." And I would've been more than happy with that answer.

And so, I didn't feel the need to get into detail or call her out. I'm not angry at her. I wish her and Shawn the best. So, I don't think I would've come out guns blazing if last season didn't happen with Andi.

Reality TV World: Watching the season back, did you gain some closure or at least an understanding why Kaitlyn chose Shawn? You weren't a fan of his, but at least you finally got to see inside his head. Did you walk away from the finale thinking, "Okay, I guess Kaitlyn and Shawn are right for each other?"

Nick Viall: I don't really know anything about their relationship. I don't really have an opinion about their relationship. I respect her decision. I respect Kaitlyn in that she knows what she wants. And so, I don't, you know, I think she picked Shawn because she felt she had a stronger connection with him than anyone else. I guess that's all I really can say.

Features & Interviews : 'The Bachelorette' star Kaitlyn Bristowe: If Nick Viall showed up on the first night, it would've changed one thing
The Bachelorette 11 The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe selected Shawn Booth and therefore dumped runner-up Nick Viall during Monday night's Season 11 finale on ABC.

Booth ended up proposing marriage to Bristowe, which she was thrilled to accept. The newly-engaged pair is now embracing their relationship in public and dealing with the aftermath of a very controversial season.

Bristowe and Booth talked to Reality TV World on Monday about their experience on the show, their love and what's next. Below is a portion of their interview. Check back with us soon for more.

Reality TV World: Kaitlyn, if you never became The Bachelorette, you might've gone home and pursued a relationship with Nick, who was clearly waiting for you. So hypothetically, if you never met Shawn, do you think you would've ended up happily dating Nick in the real world?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: I think definitely it wouldn't have worked out. That's why we didn't.

Reality TV World: Kaitlyn, you made a joke to Nick about how he should've stepped out of a limo on Night 1 rather than shown up nearly halfway through the season. If Nick started the competition from the beginning of the season, might that have changed things? You would've gotten more time with him, more time to get to know him better.

Kaitlyn Bristowe: No, it wouldn't have made a difference for that. I think it just would've made a difference for how well he got along with other people. Maybe it would have been more of a fair chance for the guys to look at it that way, but it wouldn't have changed the ending.

Reality TV World: Kaitlyn, you said your family's opinion meant everything to you and if your mom didn't like a guy, for instance, you just couldn't follow through with dating him. It seemed like your family favored Shawn over Nick. Was that a big factor in why you ended up picking Shawn?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: I think it was just more of an eye-opener. They were like, "What are you doing? Like, obviously your connection with Shawn is stronger," and I'm more myself with Shawn. So it was just kind of nice to be taken back to the real world for a second with my family and see that they definitely saw what I saw as well.

Reality TV World: Kaitlyn, you told Shawn he was "the one" in Texas, but you ended up saying you regretted telling him that. Since you've told reporters you were certain Shawn was the man for you all along, were you backpedaling from "the one" comment on the show because your feelings for other guys were becoming stronger or because Shawn was just clearly in distress over you making that confession?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: I don't know. I just think in that moment, I did feel like he was. It's not that I regret saying he's "the one." I just regretted telling him so early because that just put him in a really tough place and me in a tough place as well.

Features & Interviews : Kaitlyn Bristowe: I hope I've empowered future 'The Bachelorette' stars to be themselves
The Bachelorette 11 Kaitlyn Bristowe selected The Bachelorette bachelor Shawn Booth and dumped runner-up Nick Viall during Monday night's Season 11 finale on ABC.

Booth ended up proposing marriage to Bristowe, which she was thrilled to accept. The newly-engaged pair is now embracing their relationship in public and dealing with the aftermath of a very controversial season.

Bristowe and Booth talked to Reality TV World on Monday about their experience on the show, their love and what happens next. Below is a portion of their interview. Check back with us soon for more.

Reality TV World: A question for the both of you. I want to get a sense for what your lives were like while The Bachelorette was airing. Shawn, did you watch most or all of the season like you said in last night's episode? Were there tough things Shawn saw on TV that understandably sparked arguments? And how often did you see each other?

Shawn Booth: Yeah, I focused on watching just our parts and I didn't want to watch anything else, so we did a good job with that. And life with us was we were basically on the phone with each other all day, FaceTiming, and every other weekend or so, we would have little getaways for four or five days, which were amazing. So now we're just excited to be out in the world as a couple and looking forward to it.

Kaitlyn Bristowe: I think honestly the toughest part of the whole season was just me -- I feel like I was dealing with a lot, so he was very supportive of me through that. So it was nice.

Reality TV World: Kaitlyn, you've been labeled the most controversial Bachelorette ever, but at the same time, many women have given you props for being real and true to yourself. Do you feel you empowered future Bachelorettes and maybe set the precedent for them to act the way they want to in any given moment, or do you think the backlash you've received will have the opposite effect -- make them unfortunately more afraid to steer away from the norm and expectations of them?

Kaitlyn Bristowe: If you're going to find somebody for the rest of your life and fall in love, I think you should probably be exactly who you are, because then you have a better chance of lasting. So I guess I hope I've empowered women to be themselves.

Reality TV World: There's been a lot of talk about how Ben Zorn and Ben Higgins would both make amazing Bachelors. And I'm sure, Kaitlyn, you agree because you saw awesome qualities in them both. What would you guys think about a Ben vs. Ben showdown on The Bachelor? I mean, Kaitlyn, you had to go through the same thing with Britt Nilsson.

Kaitlyn Bristowe: Yeah, I think it's great! Do it! (Laughs)

Reality TV World: Shawn, you're quiet. I know Ben H is your friend. Do you think that's too cruel? (Laughs)

Kaitlyn Bristowe: It is cruel, but!

Shawn Booth: Well, they're both amazing guys and that would be pretty fun to watch, because I know America loves the Bens.

Kaitlyn Bristowe: Battle of the Bens! Duke it out.
