Kaitlyn Bristowe is over talking about former suitor Ian, but before she bid adieu to the proud Princeton alum, she sounded off in a Snapchat video on Tuesday, June 23.
“Somebody bake Ian a humble pie. I mean, that guy. ‘Ooo, I go to Princeton. I’m so intelligent. I’m so well spoken. You’re so shallow, Kaitlyn — but my ex-girlfriend is way hotter than you,’” the season 11 Bachelorette joked in her video “recap” to fans before going on to say, “I don’t feel sorry for Ian because he’s probably going to be the next Bachelor. Actually, they should do two Bachelors! Ian and Tony!”
In case you missed it, during his seriously snotty ride home, Ian told the camera that they “didn’t teach cheesy music quotes at Princeton” and that “seeing how badly Kaitlyn’s been at being The Bachelorette, I feel like I know what it takes to be on The Bachelor.” Tony, on the other hand, was another of Bristowe’s suitors, who was too “zen” and “peaceful” for the entire show’s concept, and also voluntarily left the show.

“I’m not going to touch on the next subject because it’s all I’ve been talking about all day today,” she continued on the topic of the next Bachelor, getting more serious. “I understand how some people don’t understand, but this is my journey, yo. I totally get why Shawn was feeling the way that he did because he’s a passionate guy,” she added. “He’s got a big heart. And it’s hard. I’ve been there. The wake date, that was supposed to be like a cultural, Irish beautiful way of celebrating life. It was not supposed to be somber. It’s supposed to be happy. When picking dates, it’s not always just me being like, ‘This is what I want to do.’ It’s a collaboration of producers’ ideas and if I’m okay with it. Really the whole point was I just respect the way that the Irish celebrate life and say meaningful things that maybe they didn’t get a chance to say,” she explained.
“I am going to leave on a note where I just want to say I appreciate everybody who supports me,” she concluded her Snapchat. “And for the haters, Taylor Swift said it best when she said, ‘I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake. Shake it off.’ My only message is, do you, bro.”
During a Yahoo Facebook fan Q&A earlier in the day, the reality star also addressed Ian’s condescending exit. “I just mentally slapped him,” she honestly answered when a fan asked how she didn’t go mental on him. “Ian did enough damage to himself, made it easy on me.”
