Monday's episode of "The Bachelorette" was high on drama and tears, as almost all the contestants wanted reassurance from Kaitlyn Bristowe regarding their place in her life.

The beginning of the episode saw Shawn Booth, a frontrunner, seeking assurance about Bristowe's feelings for him. She tells him that he could be the one for her, as she was falling in love with him.

However, people aren't happy that she confessed this, as it isn't fair to the other contestants, who are still trying to win her heart. "The Bachelorette" host Chris Harrison told TVGuide that Bristowe shouldn't have confessed her feelings this early, as she will find it difficult to stay true and go through the show, which includes giving others and herself a chance.

At the same time, Harrison says that telling Booth he could be the one is a much bigger issue than the whole sex thing with Nick Viall, who is reportedly one of the finalists.

"It's easy to put such weight on a physical act and that seems like a bigger deal that could be more regretful, but to me what she said to Shawn is a bigger deal. The Nick thing you can come back from and move past. But how do you come back from telling someone they're the one? It's a tough thing to try and take five steps back and reset and say, 'Let's go back to the way it was.' How do you try to keep Shawn from taking that to heart and dial it back and realize there are guys in this game and it's not over?" Harrison questioned.

Monday's episode saw Bristowe sending Tanner, Chris and Ben Z home, after Harrison revealed that he was postponing the Hometown Dates, as he felt she wasn't ready to meet the families yet.

"The Bachelorette" airs on Mondays on ABC.
