Bachelorette Season 11 Finale Weekly Recap


I'm so excited to be doing my first ever series of Bachelorette Recaps! This show is my guilty pleasure and I love writing and talking about it, but I also really love reading spoilers. I just wanted to provide a quick disclaimer that I have read spoilers and will be writing this from the spoiled perspective. If you want to read spoilers so you can relate more to this post you can click here.

If you like this recap, you can read all of my other recaps and Bachelorette themed posts: first episodethird episodefourth episodefifth episodesixth episodeseventh episodeMy Top 3Bachelor in Paradise Opinionstenth episode, Men Tell AllThough I know what happens in rose ceremonies and the ending, the funny and dramatic things that occur within the episodes make it worth watching. I'm excited, because this season seems to be full of drama. I think choosing Kaitlyn as Bachelorette was a good idea, though she could end up as the girl version of Juan Pablo.

We finally made it to the finale! Today's the day to see Kaitlyn pick Shawn, despite all of ABC's efforts to make us think that it is Nick. Keep reading to find out what I thought about the final 3 hours of Kaitlin's Bachelorette rein.
Preview and Introduction:

First initial opinion about the intro preview is that they are making it look like she picks no one, which they always do because they don't want you to be positive that she will get engaged to the second person out of the limo to create suspense. Obviously both Nick and Shawn love Kaitlin. They both believe that meeting Kaitlyn's family is very important. 



Kaitlyn Talking to her Family:
The one thing I noticed about her family is that they all had very exaggerated sighs as they talked to her. She tells them about Nick being there and her parents look thrilled, and by thrilled I mean petrified. Her mom understands the truth about Nick and what he is up to and she should be! 


Nick Meets Kaitlyn's Family:
Kaitlyn really values her families opinion, so she really wants to hear what they think about Nick. But if only someone could realize that Nick is not there for the right reason. Nick admits that he didn't come on for love on Andi's season, so why would he this time?!? Kaitlyn's mom is going to be the toughie in the family, but as Nick talks to her he looks so cocky. Kaitlyn's mom asks if he thinks that their chemistry will fade and Nick starts tearing up. Kaitlyn's mom then all of a sudden flips and starts saying Nick is such a great giant teddy bear. Overall through out this whole thing Nick is just a really awkward talker. In they end they all seem to like Nick. Nick asks her dads blessing and he says yes, because he gets a good feeling about Nick. I hope it takes more than a good feeling to give away your daughter.



Shawn Meets Kaitlyn's Family:
Shawn comes with a cute gift for Kaitlyn's sister knowing that she has two kids at home. Shawn really exemplifies how he has been for Kaitlyn the whole time. All of her family seems to like Shawn so much more than Nick. Kaitlyn's mom is asking the hard questions yet again. She asks how he will not be jealous, because Kaitlyn has a big personality, which in my opinion means she's a big flirt. Shawn admits that he is so confident in the trust that they have. Her mom and her sister both really likes Shawn. Her sister says that she can tell that they are perfect for one another. Shawn is so cute and he's so happy; he really redeemed himself in my eyes. He is so nervous, but yet confident asking for her parents blessing. In my opinion Shawn and Kaitlyn are the perfect match for one another. 



Nicks Final Date:
Nick instantly starts off as a show off as he jumps on the boat. Wow Bachelorette producers we saw this exact date on Juan Pablo's season, please get original. They seem really natural and she says they fit into one another's lives well. Nick just wants to start hanging out with her all the time. They have what they would call "another amazing date" and you can tell that there's a huge difference in how Nick feels, to me it seems forced. Nick we know you really are an evil genius and some how coming back on this show is helping boost your popularity. Nick gives her a gift, which is a farm with a picture and note. For some comedic relief we see that nick forgot to put the bottom part of the g, so it looked like he spelled wrong. 



Shawn's Final Date:
Shawn is hoping this isn't their last date. Again for some weird comedic relief, Kaitlyn asks him if he has sunscreen on. Like what in the world that is so random. Their conversation turns really awkward between them for no notable reason. I think it's just producers wanting us to think that she doesn't pick Shawn. Then you here Shawn saying that he is having doubts, and he really just wants to start sharing memories with her outside of the show. They click over talking about what it will be like to watch the show back. This really gets them talking about the future. You can tell that Shawn is a really great guy that wants to take care of and protect Kaitlyn. Shaw also gets her a gift, which is a jar of all their memories. This is the cutest gift ever!!



Proposal Day:
Shawn wants the proposal to go perfect. Neil Lane shows up to help him pick the perfect ring. Nick is nervous about knock on the door, because last season he thought it was Neil but it was Andi telling him it wasn't him. Now it's Nick's turn to pick a ring. Shawn wants it to be the last time he proposes to anyone. Kaitlyn's nervous as anyone would be in this situation, but she is excited. Both guys are ready to propose. She says this will be the biggest night of her life. She's sad about having to send someone home and the guy she sends home is Nick! She lets nick propose and say his whole spiel and then shoves the box down and he knows it is not him. She claims that she needed every single second to know that it was not right, but the truth is the producers forced her for drama. Nick's really confused why this happened, but he honestly doesn't look that sad and I wouldn't be surprised if he was acting the whole time. He told her she took things from him, flashback to Andi's season much. Nick looks really angry and Kaitlyn is crying. She walks him out and there we go Nick looses again. 
He even admits that he's the world's biggest joke. 
Finally a change of pace, Shawn's here! They kiss, which to me instantly shows that he's the one. He says that she exceeded all his expectations and is so incredible. He wants to make her the happiest girl in the world. Then it's her turn to talk and she says that she has never felt this before and she's been waiting forever to tell him. Yes, she knew for a very long time that he was the one, but she did a good job of covering it up. He proposes, and she says yes. I have to admit this is the sweetest proposal ever. 



After the Final Rose
Kaitlyn and Shawn's Introduction:
They start out with a super long kiss. They admit that they went through a lot, but it made them stronger. Then Chris Harrison wishes them a congratulations. 



Nick Comes Out:
Nick comes out and admits that he just trusted the relationship and he now has no regrets. Chris keeps pressing about their preexisting relationship, he explains that they started talking a month before with great conversation and that they had mutual respect, which budded into an unexpected friendship. They definitely had a preexisting connection. 



Nick and Shawn Confront One Another:
In the most awkward confrontation of the show, Shawn and Nick talk to one another. Shawn explains that Nick and him are very different people and that throughout the show he just spoke the truth of what he was feeling. Nick says that he has no right to say that, because they never got to know one another. Nick tried to get to know him, but Shawn refused to cooperate. Shawn explains that there is no jealousy, but that he really just loves Kaitlyn. Nick knew it would be hard coming on here, but he did it because he cared for Kaitlyn. Shawn just was angry that they didn't show more of the love stories instead of the feud. 



Kaitlyn and Nick Confront One Another:
Kaitlyn comes out and he ask her why he said that she was in love. She ended up rolling her eyes and yet again explaining that she did love him, but it was more about what love was strongest. She tries to make a joke, but even she can't break the ice. Nick keep explaining why he came on the show and yes we get it you had a "reason" for coming to be famous. He claims that she "took" things from him, and he says that it is referring to his words...sure it is Nick, sure. I do agree though that she should have ended it differently.



Kaitlyn and Shawn Back Together:
Shawn and her can't wait to start living life together. Shawn is excited that he can now defend Kaitlyn from all the hate that she is getting.  They are so cute together, I really hope that they last.
