Both Bachelor alum and fans are devasted over the heartbreak, and many are saying that they feel the split on a personal level. Honestly, same. Some people say that the breakup came straight out of left field, while others have seen it coming for a while. Some fans were already speculating that they were broken up before the official announcement. 

Several former Bachelor contestants have weighed in on the breakup. Jared Haibon, who was actually on Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette and competed against Shawn Booth, and his fiancee Ashley Iaconetti, were also heartbroken over the breakup. "We're just so sad, we always looked at them as such an ideal couple," Iaconetti told E! News. "I think it might be the most heart-wrenching break-up," said Haibon.

However, others said the breakup was a long time coming. One anonymous Bachelor alum that was close to the couple told E! News,"It was not a shock. No one in our circle is surprised by their decision to split... Kaitlyn and Shawn are great people on their own but you could tell they weren't going to ever make it down the aisle together."

Nick Viall, who was the runner-up on Bristowe's season, has not spoken up on the breakup. However, his friend told E! News, "I doubt he's even heard but I'm sure he would probably just wish them both the best". 

Fans have taken to social media to express their devastation over the heartbreak. Check out some of their reactions. 

Here's hoping other Bachelor couples, like Jojo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers, don't follow suit.
