We have a “winner,” Bachelor Nation.
After multiple makeouts, two overnight dates and lots (and lots) of Chad drama, JoJo Fletcher has handed out her final rose on “The Bachelorette.” Although it seemed she was torn between her look-alike finalists ― former pro quarterback Jordan Rodgers and former competitive swimmer Robby Hayes ― the 25-year old real estate developer from Dallas, Texas, chose Jordan, who subsequently proposed to her with a (shock!) Neil Lane diamond ring.
“Jordan, I love you so much. I have been waiting to tell you that I love you,” Jojo told Jordan during the finale, before he got down on one knee.
“I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Joelle Hannah Fletcher, will you marry me?”
She said yes, guys.
Jordan was a frontrunner since the beginning, as he won the coveted First Impression Rose. (Oddly enough, last year’s Bachelorette, Kaitlyn Bristowe, gave her now-fiancé, Shawn Booth, the First Impression Rose, too.) JoJo said many times that Jordan was a standout and even admitted that she loved him during a confessional in last week’s episode.
But, the finale showed some cracks in their relationship after Jordan did not initially ask JoJo’s parents for her hand in marriage.
Robby, on the other hand, was more a of safe bet. He told JoJo he loved her almost immediately, asked her parents for permission to propose, and never let her feel anything but loved. Still, it was never clear whether she truly felt the same way toward him. Well, now we know.
Congrats to JoJo and Jordan!
We can’t forget, though, that Jordan’s tumultuous relationship with his brother Aaron Rodgers ― yes, the Green Bay Packers quarterback ― got a lot of airtime this season. Here’s to one day finding out what Aaron really thinks about JoJo and Jordan, or if he cares at all.
