Bachelorette fans witnessed another teary episode on Monday night.
However Kaitlyn wasn’t the only one overwhelmed with emotion! A lot of the men seemed to have been cutting onions as well!
The most noteworthy man tears happened when Kaitlyn said goodbye to Chris Strandburg (28). We first saw Strandburg when he arrived at the mansion in a cupcake. Yes…a cupcake. But he soon showed he’s more than just a dentist from Nashville with a sharp suit and nice smile. While him and Kaitlyn seemed to have great chemistry, she ended up sending him packing after a beautiful one on one date in Dublin Ireland.
After she told Chris he wouldn’t be getting a rose she flew away in a helicopter. Strandburg seemed level headed at first. He started giving a calm interview but then something switched in him and he ended up buckling to his knees and sobbing at the edge of the cliff! They might not have known each other long, but obviously he had strong feelings for the Canadian Bachelorette!
Strandburg faced a lot of mocking ridicule following the episode but once he had some time to digest the breakup he had a good sense of humor about the whole thing. He even tweeted out to a fellow contestant asking for extra tissues!
Kaitlyn also took to social media to defend Chris. She posted a photo from their date on Instagram and wrote:
“A lot of respect for Chris. One of a kind #TheBachelorette #cupcake”
With only a few guys left and hometown dates soon approaching, Kaitlyn has had to make some hard decisions. Chris may be a one of a kind guy, and had a memorable entrance (and exit) but he just wasn’t the one for the Bachelorette.
Tune in to The Bachelorette Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
