The much talked-about episode airs Monday, June 22, but E! reported today that “The Bachelorette” suitor is none other than Nick Viall, runner-up of Andi Dorfman’s season, who returned in the middle of the season.
"It happened after they spent the day touring in Dublin. During the date, they had a hard time keeping their hands off each other," a source close to the show told E!. "When it was over, she invited him back up to her hotel room."
The website’s source continued, “When it happened, they were both in the process of falling in love. It wasn't cheap. It was them taking their relationship to the next level."
In the promo, Kaitlyn said, "I made a huge mistake," but she revealed last month to “Extra’s” Mario Lopez that she only regretted the timing of the intimacy.
“I only regret the timing of it, because there’s like an unspoken agreement that, yes, I have other relationships, but I get really in the moment with each relationship, and that’s what they kind of ask of me,” Kaitlyn told Mario at Universal Studios Hollywood.
One of the relationships Kaitlyn may be referring to is with contestant Shawn Booth, who she “accidentally” posted a photo of on Snapchat... showing Booth in bed.
Both the photo and the recent Nick Viall reports go against rumors that Kaitlyn winds up single at the end of Season 11.
Tune in to “The Bachelorette,” Mondays at 8 pm on ABC.
