The former The Bachelorette star said on a live episode of her "Off the Vine" podcast on Tuesday with Colton and girlfriend Cassie Randolph that she didn't want to follow the rules when she was down to her Final 3 bachelors on Season 11 in 2015.
"Now it's usually the format of the show to get engaged, but let me tell you, I was so annoyed on my season," Kaitlyn, 33, said.
"I wanted to do what you did, [Colton], and be like, 'Screw it, I know who I'm picking.'"
Kaitlyn was referring to how Colton decided to dump Tayshia Adams and Hannah Godwin prematurely -- before his round of Fantasy Suite dates were over -- in order to go after the girl he loved and really wanted, Cassie.
"You didn't have a fence. That was your problem," Colton noted, recalling the moment he threatened to quit production after Cassie broke his heart at first.
"You know what? I didn't have the damn fence," Kaitlyn agreed. "That fence is iconic."
POLL: SHOULD KAITLYN HAVE GOTTEN ENGAGED TO SHAWN?
"We hadn't been hanging out very long... but it was long enough to know how we felt," Kaitlyn explained of exchanging professions of love earlier this month, according to Us. "[The moment] was romantic because it was raw and real."
Colton, meanwhile, professed his love for Cassie before the Fantasy Suite portion of their date in Portugal, but Cassie determined she needed to quit the show because she didn't reciprocate such strong feelings yet.
Cassie also felt she wasn't ready to accept a marriage proposal from Colton and wanted him to leave the process with the happy ending he had hoped for.
Colton, however, refused to give up, and after dumping both Tayshia and Hannah in Portugal, he begged Cassie to simply give him a chance and date him -- with no expectations of an engagement.
Cassie obliged and then traveled to Spain to meet Colton's family while cameras were still rolling. Once the show ended, Cassie slowly fell in love with Colton in the real world.
