Many viewers were shocked when Kaitlyn Bristowe was sent packing after Chris Soules romanced her during an overnight date in Bali – but there was one more twist after Soules handed out his final rose: The 29-year-old may be getting a second chance at love!

Although Bristowe told PEOPLE that the situation is "definitely not ideal," she's staying optimistic about the whole experience, calling it "an incredible opportunity."

Here are five facts you should know about the blue-eyed beauty.

"What's your fantasy date?"

Even though Chris Soules has shared a Fantasy Suite (trademark, The Bachelor) with his new fiancée Whitney Bischoff, her answer to that question still causes him to blush.

During this week's PEOPLE cover shoot, when Soules, 33, adventurously suggested with a giggle, "Whips and chains?" Bischoff didn't miss a beat: "Fifty Shades of Soules."

Chris Soules is The Bachelor! After a bittersweet exit from Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette, the farmer from Arlington, Iowa, found love on ABC's hit franchise. Chris, 33, blogged for PEOPLE.com every week about the women, the dates and the difficult decisions he made on his journey to love – up until the final rose itself. Follow the newly engaged Chris on Twitter.

Wow. I can't believe it's over. Watching the end of my journey felt surreal. And while it was incredible to watch my love story unfold on national television, I have to say, I'm relieved it's done. I can finally stop living in secrecy, and my fiancée and I can finally be a normal couple!!!

Going to Iowa for the end of the journey was the only logical place for me. While Bali was incredible, I wanted this part to take place at home. Yes, it was cold. Yes, it was snow-covered, and windy, and barren, but it's home. It's where my heart is, and the only place I could imagine getting down on one knee.

I was truly hoping for pure, unequivocal clarity, but I didn't have it. I really thought when I started out on this whole thing, that, by this point, I would know exactly what I wanted to do, but unfortunately, it didn't work out that way. I know it may seem impossible to be in love with two women, but I promise you, it's not. It's also not easy, nor is it fun; I guess this is what happens when you start off by dating 30 incredible women.

Sean Lowe may owe his marital happiness to The Bachelor, but that doesn't mean he's always up for toeing the party line.

A day after ABC announced that it would feature two bachelorettes for season 11, Lowe spoke out via his personal blog that the plan to feature Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe vying for the affection of 25 men was "downright degrading."

"No one likes the idea," Lowe wrote, adding that his wife Catherine, "thinks it's disgusting."

As America now knows, not one but two women, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson, were named potential Bachelorettes for the next season of the ABC show, squaring off on night one. Shocking news for fans, but the women themselves are taking it in stride.

"I'm trying to be really positive about the situation," Bristowe tells PEOPLE of vying to officially become the next Bachelorette. "It's definitely not ideal, but it's an incredible opportunity. And if the outcome is me meeting the guy I spend the rest of my life with, then it is all worth it."

Nilsson, who weathered a storm of jealousy and drama during her time in the Bachelor house, says she's "grateful" to even be in the running.

"I don't know if they've ever had someone who has been controversial," Nilsson says. "I don't feel like I did anything wrong, but people dislike me. I don't really get that but it's true. So I'm super grateful."
