— -- Kaitlyn Bristowe knew that Monday night's episode of "The Bachelorette" would be explosive. So, like any good daughter would, she gave her parents a heads up about her overnight with Nick Viall.
"They were very much mentally prepared for that one. I have been talking to them for weeks about it," she told ABC News this morning. "I asked them, I'm like, 'Can we all just not watch?'... But I talked to them after and they're super supportive."
"They're very laid-back people and yeah, it's all good," she added.
Bristowe took her suitors to Dublin in the latest installment of the ABC dating reality TV show, and after a steamy one-on-one with Viall, the two retreated to her hotel room. On "Good Morning America" today, Bristowe explained that she was living in the moment and that their relationship "moved a little quicker than the others." She later told ABC News that she appreciated Viall sticking up for her online, as many viewers criticized her on social media.
"I think I would challenge anybody to date that many guys at once and not make a mistake especially when it's being filmed the whole time," she told ABC News.
Bristowe also weighed in on Ian, the suitor who called her "shallow" before leaving the competition at the start of Monday's episode. Explaining that she felt that he "attacked my character," Bristowe added that it seemed that he may have actually been there to audition for "The Bachelor" instead of trying to win her heart.
"The whole time I was like, "This guy's really here for me. He actually snuck me a couple notes through it telling me how serious he was about me," she marveled. "I think he could tell I wasn't feeling it as much and i don't think he's used to that with girls, apparently.
"I think he'd be the worst 'Bachelor' in all of history," she continued. "Worse than Juan Pablo [Galavis] actually!"
