This season’s Bachelorette Ashley Hebert started her quest for love with a pool of 25 suitors, and last night it came down to only two, reports People
Last night’s finale showed Ashley and her final two suitors, Ben Flajnik, 28, and J.P. Rosenbaum, 34, on a fun-filled getaway to Fiji where each man had one last opportunity to win over Hebert’s heart before she gave out the final rose. Hebert’s family even showed up to put Ben and J.P. to the test.
But ultimately, the decision rested with Ashley. At the last rose ceremony, Hebert stood nervously waiting to see which man would arrive first. When Ben appeared, Ashley’s face said it all. Unsmiling, she began to speak but was interrupted when Ben got down on one knee and confessed, “Every second I spend with you makes me fall deeper in love with you. I want to thank you for allowing me to feel completely and utterly vulnerable and open with you.” When Flajnik popped the question, Hebert apologized and sent him on his way after a tearful exchange.
Once Rosenbaum arrived, the mood lightened considerably as neither he nor Hebert could contain their excitement. “All the time we’ve spent together, it’s been the happiest time of my life,” J.P. said with a smile. “I’m so in love with you. You’re the one. You’re it,” he added earnestly while dropping down on one knee and presenting Hebert with a diamond sparkler from Neil Lane.
Hebert gave J.P. an enthusiastic “yes!” and added, “You mean the world to me and I want to be with you forever.”
