Just because Britt Nilsson isn’t the star of “The Bachelorette” doesn’t mean she didn’t find love on Season 11 of the ABC reality show. New reports say the 28-year-old waitress is in a relationship with contestant Brady Toops.
Kaitlyn Bristowe won the title of “Bachelorette” by getting the most votes from the bachelors during the two-night premiere, but contestant Brady Toops decided to walk out of the first rose ceremony to pursue a relationship with the cast-off Nilsson. The premiere ended with a look at Britt being driven off in a limo and devastated over her elimination. Thanks to help from host Chris Harrison, Brady later knocked on Britt's hotel room door.
Earlier, while talking during the cocktail party, Brill and Brady appeared to form an immediate connection. But then the men voted for which woman would remain, and Kaitlyn won. So although Brady didn't get to spend too much time alone with Britt, he felt that it was worth it to risk his heart on a chance with her and exited during Kaitlyn's rose ceremony. The episode ended before “Bachelorette” fans got to see Britt and Brady reconnect, but according to US Weekly, the couple is definitely dating and going strong.
“Brady and Britt are still together,” a source told the site. “They’re very happy.”
Brady is a 33-year-old singer-songwriter living in Nashville, Tennessee. In his “Bachelorette” bio he revealed how important God and spirituality are to him. His views on faith were actually what helped forge a connection with Britt.
Although the pair have been trying to keep their relationship a secret in order to avoid any big “Bachelorette” reveals for viewers, Brady appeared to hint as his relationship with Britt on social media.
“Never had I been more nervous in my entire life than this moment,” he captioned a photo of his meeting Britt during limo arrivals.
After his “to be continued” ending with the knock on the hotel room door, Brady posted another photo of him with Britt during “The Bachelorette” premiere.
“ 'The risk of love, whatever the consequences, is always, always worth it.’ Tune in next Monday for episode 3 of ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’ to see what happens,” he wrote.
Britt confirmed while on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” earlier this week that the hotel scene with Brady will air during the next episode. Fans can watch the drama when episode 3 of “The Bachelorette” Season 11 airs on Monday, May 25, at 8 p.m. EDT.
