'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe's 3.5 Ct Diamond Ring & Final Ro
Who does Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe pick, and how much is her massive Neil Lane engagement ring worth? Spoilers indicate that the 30-year-old dance instructor has a tough time deciding who should get the final rose, but she will walk off into the L.A. sunset wearing a stunning gown, a 3.5-carat diamond on her finger. Oh, and she'll have a handsome fiance, too.

According to Life & Style, the ring is worth approximately $100,000 — not a bad prize to keep if things work out for the newly-engaged couple. Fans will get to see the ring — and Kaitlyn's final pick — on the live After the Final ...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Getting New Reality TV Gig?

Kaitlyn Bristowe
The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe hands out her final rose next week, and there are rumors that she may already have another reality TV gig in the works — Dancing with the Stars Season 21.

The 30-year-old dance instructor, who was thrilled to meet pro-dancer Derek Hough on Good Morning America before she started filming her season, would not be the first Bachelor franchise star to become a DWTS celebrity dancer.

Will Kaitlyn, who took third place on Chris Soules' season of the Bachelor, follow in her ex-TV boyfriend's footsteps? After Soules proposed to Whitney Bischoff on his farm in Iow...

'Bachelorette' Star Ben Zorn Plays Superhero In L.A.

'Bachelorette' Hunk Ben Zorn Comes To JJ Lane's Rescue, Breaks U
Ben Zorn may not be the next Bachelor, but he should be able to gig as a superhero — one who saves a villain. According to TMZ, Ben, who was a contestant on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of the Bachelorette, broke up a fight in L.A. last weekend, coming to the rescue of his fellow castmate, JJ Lane.

Both Zorn and Lane attended a cast party after taping the upcoming Bachelorette: Men Tell All special last weekend — a party that ended with Lane going to the hospital due to a possible concussion.

TMZ reports that Lane and a Bachelorette crew member were jumped by a group of "at least 5 thugs" wh...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Faces Final Rose Dilemma

'Bachelorette' Final Rose Spoilers: Two Proposals Lead To Rose C
Is Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe engaged, and who did she pick — Nick Viall or Shawn Booth? Until the July 27 season finale airs, fans won't know for sure, but there are rumors that the final rose ceremony will be a shocker, with Kaitlyn struggling to decide between two proposals.

Blogger Reality Steve, who has correctly spoiled several seasons of the Bachelor and the Bachelorette, is confident that Kaitlyn will get engaged to fitness instructor Shawn Booth in the very place he first met her — the Bachelor mansion. Of course, fans who are rooting for Nick Viall to win this season's final r...

Ben Higgins Says 'Bachelor' Rumors Are Not True

7/15/2015 7:30am EDT
Ben Higgins
Hours after fans watched Ben Higgins get dumped by Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, reports that he has been picked as the next Bachelor surfaced online. However, the handsome Colorado businessman tells Entertainment Tonight, that the rumors are not true.

"Those conversations haven't happened yet," Higgins told ET on Tuesday. While he's not opposed to scooping up the opportunity as ABC's 20th Bachelor, he shot down the rumors that he's already signed a deal.

The network typically announces the name of the man who will hand out roses weeks after the Bachelorette season finale airs. Kaitlyn B...

'The Bachelorette's' Britt And Brady Are Officially Over

7/14/2015 4:53pm EDT
Britt Nilsson
Britt Nilsson and Brady Toops have split up- sorry, Bachelorette fans! According to E! News, the two Bachelorette runner-ups called it quits after less than six months of dating.

Their story was certainly romantic enough. Britt was one of two potential Bachelorettes this season but lost out to Kaitlyn Bristowe in the first episode, when more of the show's male contestants voted for her. Once she was given the boot, Brady- one of the contestants who cast his vote in her direction- quit the show in order to track her down.

And since then, The Bachelorette has given us little updates about t...

'The Bachelorette': Kaitlyn Dumps The One Guy Who's Not A Jerk

7/14/2015 6:32am EDT
The Bachelorette
Isn't The Bachelorette supposed to be about love? Or at least "The Right Reasons?" It doesn't seem like it anymore. Now it's like The Bachelorette is about provoking Nick and Shawn's jealousy war until one of them pops a blood vessel and strangles the other in his sleep.

Which is where we begin this week's Bachelorette- Shawn and Nick having a "man to man" talk that consists of Nick sitting quietly and Shawn hammering him with angry insults. Nick eventually gets in a barb about Shawn's "eskimo brothers" thing (he slept with a girl right after a famous country singer- also, is "eskimo broth...

Ben Higgins Lie May Cost Him Kaitlyn Bristowe's Final Rose

Kaitlyn Bristowe
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe heads to the Fantasy Suite her last two overnight dates on Week 9 (July 13). Nick Viall had his turn (again) last week, so tonight's episode will focus on her dates with Shawn Booth and Ben Higgins. One guy will go home at the rose ceremony, so what goes on behind closed doors may be the deciding factor for Kaitlyn. [Spoilers ahead]

Last week, Ben H. talked about his vision for the overnight dates, telling Kaitlyn that it's "not about the physical side of the relationship," and he’s "excited to stay up all night and talk." Dropping the no-sex bomb seemed to ra...

When will the Bachelor 2016 be announced, and is he one of Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe's ex-suitors?

While there are multiple rumors about who will hand out roses on the show's 20th season, the big reveal is coming soon. According to Reality Steve, the announcement could happen on live After the Final Rose special (July 27), or in late August, shortly before filming begins.

UPDATE: Ben Higgins Speaks Out About Being Named 'The Bachelor' 2016

Fans are already making their predictions on Twitter about who the next Bachelor should be, but it's more than likely the people behind the scenes...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Has No Time For Haters

7/13/2015 7:30am EDT
'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Has Message For Her Haters: Will
Kaitlyn Bristowe is one of the most talked-about Bachelorette stars in the history of the show, but not all of the chatter has been positive. From kissing too many guys, to sleeping with Nick Viall several episodes before the Fantasy Suite dates, the 30-year-old dance instructor has been taking a 140-character beating on Twitter.

On Monday night's episode, it's likely Kaitlyn will have to face the wrath of more judgmental fans. With two more overnight dates to go, and a rose ceremony elimination, she's definitely going to need the shirt she showed off on Twitter this weekend.

See ya! Wo...

Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe will come face-to-face with the guys she dumped this season during Saturday's taping of the Season 11 Men Tell All special.

Kaitlyn's guys, minus her final two, will spend hours taping the special that airs July 20, and may have some tough questions to ask the Bachelorette about the choices she made this season. However, Kaitlyn won't be the only one answering questions, with host Chris Harrison putting some of the most memorable guys from Season 11 in the hot seat.

Who will be called up on stage to talk about what has been an extremely controversial season? ...

Joe Bailey, Jared Haibon Join 'Bachelor In Paradise' Cast — Dram
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe dumped Joe Bailey and Jared Haibon before the overnight dates, but there's more reality TV drama ahead for both guys. Instead of heading home to mend their broken hearts, Joe and Jared went straight for Mexico for another chance at finding love on Bachelor in Paradise.

Although People states that Jared is the last of Kaitlyn's guys to joined the cast, Reality Steve is confident that Joe — and five other dumpees — will also appear on ABC's reality show this summer.

Did Joe and Jared have better luck finding love on Bachelor in Paradise? And who are the other ...

'The Bachelorette': Kaitlyn's Sex Secret Finally Comes Out!

The Bachelorette
Can you believe we're almost done with The Bachelorette? It's gone by so fast. It was just yesterday that limos were arriving at Bachelorette Mansion and Britt was still a relevant part of the show.

Now, Kaitlyn's whittled the group down to just three dudes, and she'll be judging their relationship mettle in the overnight f--k dates… err, fantasy suites. Same difference. We're not quite there at the start of the hour, though. We open with five men still remaining and Cupcake Chris (last seen weeping alone on a cliffside, freshly dumped) now a distant memory.

It's Ben H.'s turn for a one-o...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Cheating On Her Final Pick?

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Admits Dating Vancouver Firefigh
The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe gives out her final rose on July 27, but there are rumors that her love story with the man she chooses may not last long. Although spoilers indicate that she accepts a proposal from one of her final two guys, there are rumors that a man she dated prior to her gig on Chris Soules' season of the Bachelor is back in her life.

There is very little known about Kaitlyn's personal life before she became a reality TV star — she hasn't discussed her past with her suitors this season, at least on camera.

As if there isn't enough controversy this season with the Nic...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe's Fantasy Suite Date Gets Interrupted

7/4/2015 8:45am EDT
Kaitlyn Bristowe
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe's season has been one of the most controversial seasons in the show's history, and the drama is far from over. Monday night's overnight dates won't be quite as private as they have been in previous seasons, with rumors that producers entered the fantasy suite with cameras rolling during at least one of Kaitlyn's dates.

When cameras hovered outside Kaitlyn's hotel room door during her intimate one-on-one date with Nick Viall earlier in the season, even the Bachelorette was shocked to find out that everyone could hear them.

In an interview with Entertainment To...

According to SheKnows, next week's episode of the ABC reality show will finally see the long-simmering tension between Kaitlyn Bristowe's two suitors come to a head- and Kaitlyn's big secret out in the open.

As we've already seen in the preview for next week's The Bachelorette, next week is the episode when Kaitlyn finally admits to the remaining guys that she had sex with Nick after their one-on-one date. "It's hard for me to admit it it, but… we had sex" she says ...

Will Ben Zorn Be The Next 'Bachelor'?

Ben Zorn
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe sent handsome Ben Zorn home on Monday night, leaving many fans wondering how she could ditch one of the nicest guys on the show. Although there will be no happily-ever-after for Kaitlyn and Ben, host Chris Harrison states that viewers "haven't seen the last of him."

Does that mean Zorn is one of the top contenders for the next Bachelor, or is Chris referring to the next time the guys get together on the Men Tell All? Unfortunately, the name of the next Bachelor won't be revealed until after Kaitlyn's season wraps up at the end of July.

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe: 'I Was Scared Of Shawn'
Kaitlyn Bristowe is looking for her future husband on this season of The Bachelorette, but many fans of the show feel she is sabotaging this opportunity. Thus far, she has given one man a false hope of him being the last man standing, and Kaitlyn has hooked up with Nick Viall in a moment of weakness. Now, Bristowe is speaking out about her experiences with Shawn and why she now regrets telling him that he was the one for her.

According to a new PEOPLE report, Kaitlyn Bristowe is now revealing that she kept Shawn around for another week because she was scared of him. Shawn showed his emotio...

Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe continues to eliminate guys as she gets closer to giving out her final rose, but fans will see many of the guys she dumped later this summer on the spinoff show, Bachelor in Paradise. While ABC has only confirmed a partial cast until Kaitlyn's season is over, spoilers indicate that seven of her ex-suitors will be searching for love, or stirring up drama when the second season of BIP premieres on August 2.

Of the six guys who are expected to appear on Bachelor in Paradise, four were eliminated on the two most recent episodes of the Bachelorette...

'The Bachelorette': When Will Kaitlyn Reveal Her Big Sex Secret?

'The Bachelorette' Recap: Will Kaitlyn Tell The Other Guys She H
Where did we last leave The Bachelorette? Oh, right. Shawn was miffed about not getting a group date rose (despite Kaitlyn cooing that he was totally the one in San Antonio), and stormed up to our Bachelorette's hotel room to confront her about it.

The confrontation? Surprisingly non-confrontational. Kaitlyn and Shawn both tiptoe around their real feelings and let their ooey gooey hormones do the talking. A bunch of mush like "I like you more than anyone" and "I'm falling in love with you." Also, ample frenching.

Shawn: Mmm… *kiss* *grope* (translation: I'M UNCOMFORTABLE OTHER MEN)


Another 'Bachelorette' Romance On The Rocks?

Britt Nilsson Calls It Quits With Brady Toops, What's Next For '
Bachelorette fans are hoping to get an update about Britt Nilsson's relationship with Brady Toops on Monday night, amidst rumors that the reality stars are no longer dating. Britt, who first appeared on Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor, started dating Brady after she lost the role of the Bachelorette to Kaitlyn Bristowe.

On the second night of the season premiere, host Chris Harrison told Britt that she didn't get enough votes to become the Season 11 Bachelorette. When she found out Kaitlyn won the role, she was devastated and left the mansion in tears.

Her sadness didn't last long. B...

Kaitlyn Bristowe: 'When You Judge Me, You Do Not Define Me'

Kaitlyn Bristowe
The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe has come under fire online after revealing that she had sex with one of the show's contestants during Monday night's episode.

Bristowe hooked up with male suitor Nick Viall, who joined the show during the fifth episode of this season, and immediately regretted her actions afterward, saying to the camera that she may have "ruined everything becasue of one stupid f---ing mistake I made."

The 29-year-old defended herself following Monday night's episode though, Tweeting, "Just remember, when you judge me, you do not define me, you define yourself. think...

'The Bachelorette': Which Contestant Did Kaitlyn Have Sex With?

6/23/2015 8:03am EDT
The Bachelorette
Can I say something? I totally predicted that Nick would be the one to um… "plow" Kaitlyn's "field." Saw that one coming the moment he stepped onto the show.

Ok, minor gloat moment aside. Shall we begin this week's The Bachelorette?

When we last left Kaitlyn and the gang, she was being berated by Ian for being "shallow" and "surface level" and just on The Bachelorette "to make out with a bunch of dudes on TV." That may be true (let's be honest here, people), but Ian still comes off like a massive tool.

He went to Princeton, you guys. He's here for love, not fart jokes and poop jokes and ...

Which Former 'Bachelorette' Just Quit Her Job?

Ali Fedotowsky is saying goodbye to E! News. According to Us Weekly, the former "Bachelorette" turned news correspondent will be giving up her post on the entertainment channel. “Ali is not going to be returning to E! News in the fall,” Fedotowsky's representative said to Us Weekly. “It was a mutual decision.”

After her stint on "The Bachelorette," Fedotowsky made a few appearances on E! News, as a guest co-host and correspondent. In August of 2013, she joined the network full-time, hosting "Live From E!," covering events from the red carpet and doing plenty of heavy lifting on the program...

'The Bachelorette' Recap: Ian Goes Crazy, Claims Kaitlyn Just Wa
Ready for this week's "The Bachelorette?" Because about 95% of the "Bachelorette" men aren't. Nick V has entered the show for real, and there's hell to pay. So yeah- Nick's entrance into the guys' apartment is very awkward.

He enters. He sits.


Nick states his case, as 14 pairs of judgmental eyes bore holes into his brain. He's not here to cause drama. He's here for love, and for Kaitlyn: those holy, gold-encrusted "Right Reasons™." The men don't care, and shred him regardless.

At one point, Nick calls Kaitlyn a "cool chick." Whoa whoa whoa. Is she a cool chick, bro, or an amazi...

'The Bachelorette' Recap: What's Worse, 'Bachelorette' Rap Battl
This season isn't going to have a "Bachelorette" episode that begins and ends where it's supposed to, is it? No? Oh well.

We begin our fourth week of "Bachelorette" romancing where week three's cliffhanger left us. Kaitlyn knows Clint was more into bromancing JJ than dating her. She's coming at him with a vengeance.

Clint knows his last minutes of reality TV fame are numbered, and lays on the "power moves." AKA, lying out of his ass. I've never said anything bad about anyone, he says. They're jealous of my friendship with JJ, he says.

Kaitlyn still doesn't trust him, so Clint is given th...

'The Bachelorette' Recap: More Sumo Wrestling Buttcrack Than You
When we last left "The Bachelorette," (just once I'd like to see an episode actually end with a rose ceremony), an alcohol-soaked Kupah had just been eliminated. He was also screaming incoherently with his face six inches from the camera guy's.

This week, Kaitlyn (also, everyone) hears Kupah's elimination-howls and heads out to defuse the situation. She does, although his yes, ma'am-ish reply is weird and kid-like. Ditto for grumbling she's ugly, I never liked her anyway as soon as Kaitlyn's back is turned.

But Kupah is ushered into his elimination limo and the night can continue. Which i...

'Bachelorette' Promo Features Two Male Contestants Falling In Love

JJ and Clint
Just one week into this season of ABC's The Bachelorette a love connection between Britt Nilsson and contestant Brady Toops has already been forged, albeit behind the cameras, and now it seems another highly unlikely romance has begun.

Nilsson was voted off the show in just the second episode in favor of Kaitlyn Bristowe as part of a new twist to name this season's lucky lady; and after Nilsson left and the waterworks began back at her hotel, she was chased down by Toops, who had told host Chris Harrison that he felt he had a connecton with her that he didn't feel with Bristowe (even if Br...

Last week's three-hour "The Bachelorette" premiere madness has ended. Do you feel a wave of tranquility across your entire body? That's what this is. Now Kaitlyn and her many menfolk can begin their rigorous love-finding search in earnest.

Oh, and "in earnest" means "strapping on boxing gloves and clobbering each other in the head." It's a boxing competition! The guys get to train with Laila Ali (awesome), then use their day's worth of boxing expertise to duke it out in the ring.

Here's a question: does Kaitlyn actually box? Usually group dates have some kind of connection to the Bachelor...

Did Britt Nilsson Make A Love Connection Even Though She's Not 'The Bachelorette'?

5/23/2015 3:44pm EDT
Britt Nilsson and Brady Toops
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe may be going on to film an entire season of the hit ABC show, but it sounds like the real winner was Britt Nilsson, who was voted off the show after one episode, thanks to a new twist.

The 11th season of the show began with the bachelors having to choose between Kaitlyn and Britt, but one of them, Brady Toops, couldn't get Britt out of his head after it was revealed that Kaitlyn was the unanimous choice.

Toops took host Chris Harrison aside and told him that he wasn't interested in pursuing Kaitlyn on the show, and instead asked about the hotel where Britt wa...
