During his limo ride after he all but proposed to Kaitlyn Bristowe – and got rejected – Viall, 34, called himself the "world's biggest joke," and, staying true to the show's dramatic nature, took off a ring he and Bristowe had gotten together in Ireland and tossed it across the car.

This is called putting your money where your heart is.

Bachelorette lovebirds Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth were guests Monday on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, shortly after their romance went public in the ABC dating show's finale. And they vowed not to end up like so many other Bachelor and Bachelorette couples – even wagering money that they'll be married, or at least still together, a year from now.

"Twice a year for like 13 years now, we've seen people get together. They come on the show and they seem to be very much in love … And then the next thing we know, we see them on the cover of a magazine with a tear down the center," Kimmel said.

Bristowe chose to send Nick Viall home and accepted Shawn Booth's proposal, and the two made their public debut as an official couple on the live After the Final Rose special.



This wasn't Viall's first time making it to the final two on The Bachelorette: He also came in second place while courting Andi Dorfman on the show last spring.

The two-time runner-up sat down with Bristowe on Monday night on After the Final Rose for the first time since she sent him home.
