“They’re all, like, kind of king with us,” he recalls. “And she started laughing. Caitlin said, ‘What are you laughing at?’ [at]”I’m like ‘Peanut Gallery.’

In August, the pair shared via a joint Instagram post that they called it quits.
“After sharing the news with family and close friends first, and taking the time to properly process it ourselves, it is with heavy hearts to share that we have decided to end our engagement,” the duo wrote at the time. “We are grateful to all of you who have given us the time and space to process this life-changing decision as there are so many emotions and changes to navigate.”
They continued: “Continuing our friendship is very important to both of us. We feel grateful to end our engagement with love and respect for each other. It is heartbreaking and sad to say goodbye, but our care and admiration for each other will never die.
Bristowe later claimed that Tartick “did not protect her” from the online hate surrounding their breakup. (Tartick posted a video of him leaving their home, and included clips of their dogs looking sad as he packed boxes.)
