He continued. “You would have to fly under a pseudonym. Someone would pick me up from my house and say, “Eric? I would say, “Yeah. I’m Eric.” Because she was Ariel. The little Mermaid. And so we were traveling under these names and then she would go to that house in a car. I was taken to this house a few hours later, and the house would be like, in the middle of LA, somewhere where it’s completely secluded – trees, a fence, like, you’re not allowed to leave the property. Each counter is all booze and food and they’re like, “Okay, don’t go. Enjoy.'”
Shawn added that a producer also stayed in the house. “It’s just like, okay, so let’s get drunk and eat and do other things that newly romantic couples do,” the reality TV star said.
Kaitlyn had spoken of times incognito with Shawn before. In 2018, months before they announced their separation, she said HEY that the two had a “happy couple weekend” at a property after getting engaged, and also talked about the two being given the aliases Ariel and Eric when they were transported apart.
Additionally, also in 2018, another Bachelor Nation alumnus Becca Kufrin referred to her own “happy couple weekend” with the star Arie Luyendyk Jr., her ex now, on the season 22 finale of The single person.
