It's been a hot second since The Bachelorette ended and Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth got engaged. The now happy couple had quite a rocky time on The Bachelorette— or so it seemed — from trust issues, The Other Guy, to sumo wrestlers. Kaitlyn's season of The Bachelorette brought us our current Bachelor, Ben Higgins, who is currently embarking on his own journey of love with 28 women. But, before you get too invested in Ben's season, you might be wondering what Kaitlyn Bristowe has been up to since The Bachelorette ended.
Kaitlyn's season of The Bachelorette was one of the most talked about seasons of the show to date. Her relationship with Nick Viall was quite a point of contention for fans of the show, but that's Nick Viall always and forever. She was one of the most open and real people to be on the show. She wasn't afraid of criticism and public reaction and didn't apologize for any of her actions. Basically, she was awesome.
Now, Kaitlyn has moved on from being The Bachelorette and is currently engaged to the guy that lasted until the very end of the season, Shawn. Here's what she's been up to since the cameras stopped rolling.
She & Shawn Are Still Going Strong
As Kaitlyn says in the caption, 2015 was a rollercoaster for her. Luckily, it seems like she is really happy with how it ended, and who she has by her side.
They Even Took Beautiful Engagement Photos
Kaitlyn told Brides that a televised wedding is not out of the question for her and Shawn. Um, can I get a plus one?
She's Not Pregnant
I'm not sure if this is a rumor that she's tired of hearing and wanted to address, but let the record show, Kaitlyn is not pregnant.
She's Hanging Out In Good Company
Recently, Shawn and Kaitlyn had a double date with Sean and Catherine Lowe. Maybe the Lowes gave Shawn and Kaitlyn advice on how to make it work post-Bachelor. Then again, it seems like they're doing just fine.
She's Still Friends With Her Fellow Bachelor Contestants
I don't know if they're looking for another friend, but I'm happy to volunteer my time to hang out with these three.
She's Still On Snapchat
Kaitlyn stirred the pot during her season of The Bachelorette after posting a photo of her and Shawn together in bed before the season was even over. Nowadays, her Snapchat isn't full of secrets, but it is a lot of fun to follow.
She Gave A Ted Talk
OK, this is pretty awesome. Kaitlyn spoke at TedxVancouver about reality television and how it teaches consumers about themselves and how the show is manufactured and far from realistic situations. Also, props to her for saying she went on the show to build a brand.
So, clearly Kaitlyn has been keeping busy since The Bachelorette. I personally can't wait to hear more from her and Shawn — fingers crossed for a Snapchat wedding!
