Though there are still five remaining suitors on The Bachelorette season 11, anyone who’s seen the show can pretty much tell that the competition for Kaitlyn Bristowe’s heart boils down to bitter rivals Shawn B. and Nick Viall.  And if Monday’s episode is any indication, it doesn’t look like these two men will be burying the hatchet anytime soon.

Important decisions will be made on Monday’s episode as Kaitlyn contemplates on which remaining bachelors will be included in the final three. But before that happens, she goes on a date with Ben H. to  historic Innisfallen Island, where he asks her an embarrassing personal question. The episode takes a very awkward turn as Kaitlyn goes on a group date with Joe, Nick and Shawn to Killarney National Park, where unexpected drama erupts. Watch preview here!

To make matters complicated, Kaitlyn finally admits to the remaining guys that she had sex with Nick after their one-on-one date and it does not go well especially with Shawn, who interrupts the rose ceremony to speak privately with Kaitlyn. Is he quitting The Bachelorette? Probably not but he looks pretty pissed off as he shouts at Nick in the preview. “You’re the last person I want to talk to,” Shawn tells Nick. “How about you just get the f–k out of my place right now?”

A source tells E! News that “Shawn just couldn’t get over it. He was obsessed. He was more upset that it was Nick than anything else. He asked Kaitlyn, ‘Why him?’ He didn’t understand why, out of all the guys, it was Nick she had to sleep with.” 

And just went you thought things couldn’t get any worse, one suitor reveals something scandalous about another bachelor during Kaitlyn’s first overnight date which leads to a huge showdown the following day. While the official press release didn’t reveal which two men get into a fight, all signs point to Nick and Shawn.

“Nick felt he had tried to get to know him and was rebuffed at every turn,” an insider revealed to E! News. “He didn’t have any respect for the way Shawn was handling himself. Shawn never gave him a chance.”

“Nick and Shawn never end up making peace on the show. It’s one of the most bitter rivalries the franchise has ever seen,” the source added.

The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.
