Originally posted 05/26/2015 07:35AM

Between the boxing and the stand-up comedy, a lot happened on The Bachelorette Monday.

But the key takeaway – other than that having a bunch of dudes hit each other is an awkward way to impress a lady – is that a lot of people really liked Amy Schumer's appearance. – and now ABC executive Robert Mills is saying he wants the comedian to be the next lady looking for love on national TV.

Kaitlyn Bristowe's Bachelorette Blog: The Date Moment That Was 'My Worst Nightmare'

Originally posted 05/26/2015 07:10AM

Kaitlyn Bristowe is the Bachelorette! She charmed her way into the hearts of the Bachelor Nation – and nearly the Bachelor himself, Chris Soules, on season 19 of The Bachelor. Now Kaitlyn has begun her own journey to love.

Waking up that next morning as the Bachelorette was a surreal feeling. There was so much happening that first night, I think it was still taking its time to sink in. I mean, it's not every day you wake up in a beautiful house with Chris Harrison knocking at your door. But I will admit, I was so relieved to see him. There was a lot to process, and having him there to help talk me through it was much needed.

I couldn't believe that in just one night connections had already begun to develop. And there I sat, lucky enough to be the Bachelorette and eagerly awaiting my first week of dates. In the back of my mind, I had to wonder, Which of these guys voted for Britt and who voted for me? And how was Britt doing? But I couldn't allow those thoughts to take over. I had a great group of guys ready to kick these dates off with, and that's where my focus needed to be.

The Bachelorette Recap: Kupah Doesn't Understand Boundaries and Ben Z. Sends Jared to the Hospital

Originally posted 05/25/2015 11:00PM

And you thought that having 25 men vote for either Britt Nilsson or Kaitlyn Bristowe as their next Bachelorette would be the most uncomfortable thing to watch, as a woman, on this season of The Bachelorette. Naïve.

This week, eight of Kaitlyn's suitors took to a boxing ring to fight one another and posture manfully, and Ben Z. ended up sending Jared to the hospital while Kupah appeared more enamored of meeting Laila Ali than interacting with Kaitlyn.

Later, Kupah accused Kaitlyn of only keeping him around as part of a "quota," and then he completely ignored her boundaries when she asked him to leave. It was bad, but more on that below.

Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe: I'm Too Much of a 'Skid' for Fancy Gowns!

Originally posted 05/21/2015 07:40AM

As any fan of The Bachelorette knows, over-the-top gowns and jewels are part of the package.

But for newly minted Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, all that glam took some getting used to.

"I wear combat boots and backwards hats and baseball tees," says the 29-year-old former dance instructor. "So it was so weird. I felt guilty putting the dresses on because I'm too much of a skid for this!"

THERE YOU HAVE IT!!! I can finally say that I, Kaitlyn Bristowe, am the Bachelorette. What a whirlwind. When Chris Harrison told me the news, of course I was excited. But the first thing that came to mind was, 'How is Britt?' I wanted to run to her and give her a huge hug and make sure she was okay. Britt is a strong woman, so I knew she would handle it well, but that's just not something anyone would want to go through. It was without a doubt the strangest mix of emotions all at once.

I did feel guilty being excited because I knew someone's feelings were hurt. But I was grateful, eager and relieved. As the excitement took over, I was sooo stoked I got to call my mom! I knew how happy she would be for me and that my whole family was probably anxious. I had just been through such a roller coaster of a night, there were so many conversations and emotions happening, I couldn't comprehend doing another cocktail party and then having my first rose ceremony. It was the longest and the best night of my life.
