Though he made a fairly poised exit on the season finale Monday night, The Bachelorette runner-up Nick Viall did let his composure slip a little.

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.

On Monday night's season finale of The Bachelorette, leading lady Kaitlyn Bristowe's two final suitors picked out a ring and prepared to propose.

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.

Ouch! Nick Viall got jilted for a second time on Monday's finale of The Bachelorette, but he got some sympathy from a surprising source.

Former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman, who ditched Viall in favor of Josh Murray last season, hasn't exactly been on good terms with her ex ever since he revealed that they'd had sex in the fantasy suite, but she offered up a few kind words after Kaitlyn Bristowe sent him home in tears.

It's finally over. If you felt a gentle breeze blow your hair back, it was my explosive sigh of relief traveling miles, state lines, countries, continents, galaxies.

Every season, host Chris Harrison promises that "this season of The Bachelorette/The Bachelor/Bachelor in Paradise will be the most dramatic yet," and he proves himself a liar most of the time. Not this time! Kaitlyn Bristowe finally made her choice, and it was in the most awkward, painful way possible. You played the runner-up real dirty, Kaitlyn. Reeeeal dirty.

Let's get into it, shall we? Huge spoilers are below, obviously.
