Former Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe is expecting a proposal from Jason Tartick any day now. She even laid down some ground rules for what she expects to see when Tartick gets down on one knee.
Kaitlyn Bristowe was a contestant on season 19 of The Bachelor with Chris Soules, where she finished third place. She then went on to be the star of The Bachelorette on season 11 in 2015. On the season finale, Shawn Booth proposed to her and the two stayed engaged for three years together before parting ways. Tartick, also part of Bachelor Nation, competed for Becca Kufrin's heart on season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he was sent home in third place. Just months after Bristow and Booth called off their engagement, Tartick confirmed his relationship to Bristow.
Even though the two have been dating for less than a year, Bristowe is expecting her boyfriend to propose to her any day now. She said to Us Weekly, "Every time I’m like, 'Oh my, God. Is today the day?' I’m probably going to ruin the day because I’m going to be like, 'Oh, here it comes! I know this is it!'" She explained that she has some conditions and rules as to how her boyfriend proposes to her. Tartick tried to guess her rules, saying, "I think you have two rules. - No double halo. No Neil Lane," referring to the type of engagement ring. Bristowe confirmed, "I would prefer not to have a Neil Lane ring. I love his rings. It just [represents something else]." The significance behind the Neil Lane brand is the fact that Bristowe's ex-fiancé, Booth, proposed to her with one on the finale of The Bachelorette. She denied, however, that it was a "rule" and more of a preference.
Bristowe did have one hard rule: "Just not on the Jumbotron." She explained, "I don’t really have any rules except for that one." Even though the two haven't even gotten engaged, they've already started thinking about their wedding. They've both decided that airing their special day on TV will be out of the question. Bristowe said, "Hell no. I would not want a televised wedding." Tartick explained that while he was initially "up for" a televised wedding, his mind was changed after he tuned into Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone's wedding on season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise. He said, “I was just so bothered by the way it was. They had the fight going on during their wedding," referring to the fight that broke out between John Paul Jones and Derek Peth after their beautiful ceremony.
Though the Bachelorette alumni, Bristowe and Tartick, have already decided on a non-televised wedding, they haven't, however, decided on which engagement ring. One thing is for sure, whenever Tartick decides to propose - Bristowe will undoubtedly say yes - as long as it's not on a Jumbotron.
