A winner as well as an after-show!
The Bachelor Winter Games finale did not disappoint! Thursday’s episode of the Bachelor spinoff had a dramatic breakup (Bibi as well as Jordan bit the dust), a fantasy suite (or two) as well as a jaw-dropping reunion show which has a stunning engagement.
in which’s right, despite Chris Harrison’s doubts, the four-episode series was able to produce three lasting couples: Dean as well as Lesley, Lily as well as Courtney, as well as the show’s winners, Ashley I. as well as Kevin — as well as one heck of a proposal after two contestants reconnected after the show.
Here are our favorite Olympic-sized moments via Winter Games‘ three-hour finale:
GOLD: Benoit as well as Clare’s Surprise Engagement
After Dean’s tricky key-to-my-house proposal, Benoit got down on one knee for the real deal, proposing to Clare after she sent him home on the show. This particular seems absence only made the heart grow fonder for the pair, as Benoit reached out after saying goodbye. The two started out dating, as well as just weeks later, decided to take the next step!
“I always wanted a man who could’t give up on me. You truly have changed my life,” Clare sweetly said, before Benoit professed his love for her.
“Clare, the first day I met you, I didn’t believe in love at first sight, however at the time, I was shocked. You’re the strongest woman I’ve ever met in my entire life. I know you have been through a lot, as well as there’s going to be issues… however I want to be beside you, because we’re be a lot stronger together,” he said. “You never gave up on love, as well as This particular is actually the best thing bout you.”
“I could never, ever give up on you. I feel like there is actually someone up there in which is actually watching up right at This particular point, as well as he agrees with what I’m about to do,” Benoit continued, before speaking a little French as well as getting down on one knee. “Clare, will you marry me?”
SILVER: Luke as well as Stassi’s Icy Breakup
The two seemed like they were actually serious on Winter Games, even telling each different on the finale in which they planned to make every effort to make their relationship work despite the long distance between them. As viewers found out on World Tells All, however, Luke had no intention of producing This particular last — as well as didn’t even ask for her cell phone number.
Stassi came in hard with the sass, asking Luke if she was unconscious during these conversations he said they had about going their separate ways. “You didn’t even try… after the cameras shut off, you’re like, ‘This particular doesn’t work.’ How, after This particular, you have no contact? How, after This particular, can you cut someone off completely?”
“I apologize,” Luke said, before the show displayed his candid interactions with Stassi when he thought he was off camera. “Yeah… [I didn’t want to be with you].”
BRONZE: Ashley I. as well as Kevin Actually Winning the Show
We have to give a shout out to the couple who actually won Winter Games, right? Ashley as well as Kevin may not have had the strongest start This particular season (Kevin did start off with Bibi, after all), however they made their ending count, delivering a tolerable ice dancing performance as well as giving viewers a touching moment within the fantasy suite, where Ashley said in which Kevin was “definitely worth the wait.”
While speaking with Chris Harrison on World Tells All, they revealed in which they’re still going strong — as well as won’t be talking any more about Ashley’s virginity (or their sex life). You do you, guys!
FAR OFF THE PODIUM: Luke
Why you gotta be like in which? Seriously? Of all the two-faced personalities we’ve seen on the show, Luke has to take the top slot, after coldly cutting Stassi loose after the show without an explanation. Not a Great look, dude.
in which’s This particular for Winter Games, however we’ve still got The Bachelor. The show returns on Sunday with The Women Tell All, before an all-brand new episode on Monday at 8 p.m ET/PT on ABC.
