This season of The Bachelorette may be ending tonight, but our love for Kaitlyn Bristowe will live on!
As Bristowe has been searching for love, her time on the ABC dating competition has been a whirlwind adventure filled with tears, kisses, laughter, more tears, and unfiltered confessions.
Before we say goodbye to this dramatic season, and prepare for the announcement of the next Bachelor, we're listing the top four reasons why we love Bristowe and why we'll totally miss her when The Bachelorette is over.
1. Her Laugh Is Contagious: Whether you love her or love to hate her, chances are you’ve talked about Bristowe’s body-shaking and infectious laugh. Bachelorette host and executive producer Chris Harrison admitted to ET that he is very familiar with the brunette beauty's chuckle. "That laugh -- I don't know if it's contagious or nauseating," he said with a smile. Aww come on, Chris! It's cute. (Most of the time…)
2. She Wears Her Heart on Her Sleeve: One of the best things about Bristowe? She spilled everything that was on her mind to the cameras -- including every time she thought that one of her suitors was "hot" or "manly." On the flipside, if Bristowe knew that one of her fellas was not the right fit to be her future husband, she sent him home immediately. It didn’t matter if she stranded them on an Irish moor or on a bench in the middle of nowhere, if Bristowe knew there wasn't a future, she didn’t wait until a rose ceremony to call it quits.
3. She is Fearless: Despite the fact that we think Bristowe cried more tears than all of the previous Bachelorettes combined, we still think the dance instructor is pretty fearless. (Well, at least whenever birds weren't involved…) She came on national TV to find her future husband and willingly shared all of the ups and downs that come with a relationship on camera for millions of viewers to see and subsequently judge. That deserves some major kudos.
4. She Owns Up to Her Mistakes: Bristowe was viciously cyber-bullied for sleeping with contestant Nick Viall before an overnight date, the Bachelorette was open and honest about her sex life. She even admitted the truth about her late-night rendezvous to frontrunner Shawn Booth out of respect to their relationship, and we think that's pretty admirable.
The season finale of The Bachelorette airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
Yikes! Chris Harrison admits in the video below that Kaitlyn Bristowe might not pick either guy in tonight's finale. Watch now!
