Season Finale – After Kaitlyn survived a heart-wrenching rejection by Chris Soules, and then a nerve-wracking night to become the Bachelorette over Britt, she moved forward for a chance at finding love with one of 26 intriguing bachelors. After surviving shocking twists and turns and a journey filled with laughter, tears, love and controversy, Kaitlyn narrowed down the field to two men who despise one another – Nick and Shawn. Her relationship with Shawn has survived several emotional bombshells, but she is still concerned that his jealous nature will sabotage her connection with him. Meanwhile, her relationship with Nick has been undeniably passionate and intense. But what will happen when their physical attraction fades? In this week’s dramatic conclusion, Kaitlyn is absolutely torn between the two men. She loves them and can envision a future with both bachelors, but time is running out, on the Season Finale of “The Bachelorette,” airing Monday, July 27 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Then, emotions run high as Kaitlyn sits down with Chris Harrison, live, to talk about her two final bachelors from this season – Nick and Shawn. She will take viewers back to those final days in Los Angeles when she needed to make her life-changing decision. Both men will return to sit with Kaitlyn and discuss the shocking outcome of the show and their relationships. It’s the emotional ending to Kaitlyn’s heartfelt, but provocative, journey to find true love. A sneak peek of the highly anticipated hot summer series, “Bachelor in Paradise,” also will be featured, on “The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose,” Monday July 27 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET).
With a possible proposal just days away, Kaitlyn introduces both men to her family in Los Angeles. Family is extremely important to Kaitlyn, so it is essential that these meetings go well. Who will make a lasting impression?
The family is first introduced to an extremely nervous Nick. Kaitlyn’s mom expresses her concern about Nick’s reputation as an unfriendly, overconfident man. Will he be able to convince her family that he is in love with the Bachelorette and he really is a nice guy? Next, Shawn attempts to dissuade Kaitlyn’s family that his reputation for having an intense jealous streak won’t get in the way of his love for their daughter.
Kaitlyn has important last dates with both men before the proposal day. She takes a romantic boat ride with Nick and realizes their red hot chemistry is for real and can picture a future with him. Her second date with Shawn gets off to a rocky start, as they spend an afternoon at a beautiful winery. So many things remain unsaid between them. Will their original passion keep them together or is it the end of the road for the couple?
The final days of Kaitlyn’s journey are filled with questions. Then, in a surprising, explosive ending, she must do the hardest thing she has ever done. Will her trip of self-discovery end with her accepting a proposal or will she end up all alone?
The two remaining men are:
Nick, 34, a software sales executive from Chicago, IL
Shawn B., 28, a personal trainer from Windsor Locks, CT
