'Bachelorette' Hopeful Ben H. Comes Clean About His Secret

For once, it wasn't Kaitlyn confessing a big secret on "The Bachelorette" Monday night.

During their overnight date, Ben H. had something he just had to come clean about -- something he's been keeping from her ever since he came on the show.

"You wanna hear something crazy?" asked Ben H. on "The Bachelorette." "Might as well share everything."

"I'm scared!" said Kaitlyn.

"My birthday was on this show," said Ben.

"What?!" said Kaitlyn. "When? Your 27th or your 26th?"

"26th," Ben answered.

Okay, phew! Ben was only coming clean about his real age.

The issue never really came up with Kaitlyn before, but Ben wanted to be completely honest with his 30-year-old leading lady before they took the next step in their relationship.

Unfortunately, his honesty didn't do him much good when the rose ceremony came around.

Kaitlyn ended up choosing Shawn and Nick over Ben, much to the dismay of pretty much everyone.

A writer for People said what we were all thinking after that: "Obviously Shawn and Nick both got roses even though, quite honestly, they are both scrubs. Ben for Bachelor. Ben for president!"

Bustle couldn't believe Kaitlyn gave Ben the boot after all he did for her during their romantic overnight date.

Well, with Ben out of the picture, the battle between Shawn and Nick has officially begun. To see who Kaitlyn chooses, keep watching the "Bachelorette" Mondays on ABC.

THE BACHELORETTE - ABC's hit romantic reality series, 'The Bachelorette,' kicks off its 11th season continuing the surprises of this season's 'Bachelor' with the biggest one of all: there will be two Bachelorettes. One is Kaitlyn, the gorgeous, fun-loving, warm-hearted, but irreverent firecracker who let down her guard only to have her heart crushed. Who will the men prefer? Eventually, only one woman will be left to hand out the final rose. 'The Bachelorette' returns to ABC, premiering MONDAY, MAY 18 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

America fell in love with two very different but dynamic Bachelorettes last season - Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe. It was hard to choose between the beautiful, charming Britt and the gorgeous, fun-loving, wise cracking Kaitlyn. So now, 25 eligible bachelors will choose between these two amazing women. For the first time in franchise history there will be two Bachelorettes. Chris Soules sent both ladies home broken hearted, but now with another chance at love, both women are ready to take a journey they hope will wind up happily ever after, on 'The Bachelorette' two-night premiere event, MONDAY, MAY 18 (9:01-11:00 p.m., ET) and TUESDAY, MAY 19 (8:00-9:00 p.m, ET), on the ABC Television Network.
