‘The Bachelorette’ makes choice, and its Garrett Yrigoyen

"He's on 'Bachelor In Paradise, ' so we've got to watch what the reaction is". At the top of the finale, show host Chris Harrison said that the runner-up was left completely heartbroken.

"Becca has the worst taste in men".

But right after the season 14 began, Yrigoyen found himself involved in a scandal because of some of his social media activity.

Becca arguably deserved a happy ending more than anyone else in this franchise after Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed marriage to her on The Bachelor's Season 22 finale only to dump her weeks later on-camera in order to reconcile with his runner-up, Lauren Burnham, whom he's now engaged to. The family is charmed enough. "You can imagine this trip could have been very hard for Lauren but she has supported and stood by me in all of this".

Becca looked over at Garrett expectantly. Emily told Kufrin that Horstmann would challenge her and make a good teammate.

Becca begs her family to treat Blake exactly the same way they treated Garrett, so Emily does her best to make Blake cry. And she could see herself doing the same back to him.

Of the backlash surrounding Garrett, Becca told "Extra" in May, "Everyone has an opinion - that's what is so great about our country". Becca's mom asks Blake what he would do if Becca didn't choose him.


Kufrin then went on her final date with both men, sailing the Indian Ocean with Yrigoyen and taking a bike ride followed by paddle boarding across the Maldives with Horstmann. Had to wipe his face with a washcloth saying he has go through this "alone, alone, alone".

Becca admitted it was "a major thing" they had to talk about in the beginning stages of their off-camera relationship.

"It feels like a bit of home with you", she said. Instead he has eagles.

Harrison pressed Garrett on whether he thought Becca might break up with him after the Instagram situation became public. Garrett's definitely winning this thing.

Sadly, the producers persist in having the unlucky fellow give a speech professing his love, not getting his dreams dashed until just before he gets down on one knee.

Blake, ever the gentleman, told Becca she had nothing to say sorry for and that he wanted her to be happy. Chris Harrison pops in to tell viewers to brace themselves for a "raw", "real", and painful dumping. Blake gets out of the boat that delivered him to his doom.

The show ends with the moment fans have been waiting for... the proposal! If anything, I know just how capable of finding love I am. He may be the only person in the world who is stunned, though.


Becca asks if she can walk him out, mostly because he would probably walk directly into the ocean if he didn't have a chaperone. He likes more of the water.

Then we saw Blake shaking and crying into a towel and crying and crying some more.

But according to Becca, all of the highs and lows of her time on the show were worth it.

Oh, so Garrett's done then?

She finally has her wish with Yrigoyen.

The backstory, if you missed it: Right after "The Bachelorette" premiered in May, a former "Bachelor" contestant revealed that Garrett had "liked" posts on Instagram that made fun of transgender people; mocked feminists; claimed Parkland, Fla., school shooting survivor David Hogg was a crisis actor; and joked about throwing an immigrant child over the border. Why else defend him so vigorously? "I mean, there is just so much that happens with each week, and so I think what I love is that it focused on the relationship that were forming on my journey".
