He continued. “You’d have to fly under an alias. Somebody would come and pick me up at my house and be like, ‘Eric?’ I’d be like, ‘Yeah. I’m Eric.’ Because she was Ariel. Like The Little Mermaid. And so then, we would travel under those names and then she would go to this house in one car. I would get taken to that house a few hours later, and the house would be like, in the middle of L.A., somewhere where it’s completely secluded—trees, fence, like, you’re not allowed to leave the property. Every counter has just booze and food and they’re like, ‘Alright, don’t leave. Have fun.'”
Shawn added that a producer also stayed in the house. “It’s just like, alright, so let’s just get drunk, eat and do other things that newly in-love couples do,” the reality star said.
Kaitlyn had already spoken about the incognito times with Shawn. In 2018, months before they announced their split, she told ET that the two had a “happy couple weekend” at a property after getting engaged, and also spoke about the two being given the aliases Ariel and Eric when being transported separately.
In addition, also in 2018, fellow Bachelor Nation alum Becca Kufrin referenced her own “happy couple weekend” with star Arie Luyendyk Jr., her now ex, on the season 22 finale of The Bachelor.
