Season 17 of ‘The Bachelorette’ concluded Monday with an engagement.
Katie Thurston found a happy ending on the finale of “The Bachelorette.”
After a fight with Greg Grippo and “The Bachelorette” threatening to quit the show, the season ended with an Thurston and Blake Moynes becoming engaged.
The two shared a fantasy suite date and said “I love you” to each other. Thurston sent the other remaining contestant, Justin Glaze, home.
Before Moynes popped the question on the finale, Thurston confronted Grippo during the “After the Final Rose” special.
“I never felt that you actually intended to probably ever get engaged in that journey together,” Thurston told him.
When Grippo disputed that, Thurston continued: “That doesn’t take away the anger that I had watching this back and seeing the way you treated me, using me to get the experience, the exposure, dare I say, the acting practice? At my expense.”
But Thurston seems to have found her match.
“The night you told me you loved me changed my life forever,” Thurston said to Moynes after he proposed. “You have made me the happiest woman alive, and in a world of change, I want to be your constant, I’ll love you today, tomorrow, and forever, and I can’t wait for our adventure to begin.”
