Ouch! Kaitlyn Bristowe just revealed why she kept Nick Viall until the final two on her season of The Bachelorette, and as much as we don't want to, we feel for the guy. Apparently, she only brought him to the final two for the ratings.

Womp womp. Kaitlyn ended up getting engaged to Shawn Booth, and she recently admitted in her podcast, Off the Vine, that she knew he was the one all along. She also confessed that she didn't want Nick to be the runner up.

"I knew it was going to be Shawn [Booth], and in the last little while -- oh, this is a big secret -- I wanted my final two to be Ben [Higgins] and Shawn," she confessed.

"I wanted my final two to be Ben and Shawn because I knew I would hurt Nick," she explained. "But I couldn't because then apparently it would've been boring, my season, and at that point I was like, 'Whatever, it was going to be Shawn.'"

Who could forget how sad Nick was after he got dumped while he was planning to propose to Kait? He once told People magazine of the breakup, "I was in shock. And then reality set in, and I felt that hurt and pain. It sucked."

It sucks to know that Kaitlyn did it purposefully even though she knew it would hurt him. On the other hand, it's hard to feel too badly for him after he slut-shamed Andi Dorfman by revealing that they slept together before she ultimately chose Josh Murray over him on her season of The Bachelorette.

Just saying ... maybe he's slightly guilty playing the ratings game himself.
