On the March 13, 2017 of The Bachelor with Nick Viall, he had to choose between the final two women, Vanessa and Rachel and decide which one would receive his final rose. Did she also receive an engagement ring? Find out below. First, however, he introduced both of the women to his family and spent a great deal of time agonizing over which one was right for him.
Below is a brief summary of what happened, as well what to expect the rest of this year from The Bachelor franchise!
SPOILER ALERT: Do not read further if you do not want to know what happened this week!
What to Expect in Coming Weeks:
During the final episode of The Bachelor 2017, Nick spent more time with the final two women, Vanessa and Raven. He introduced them both to his parents and agonized over which one to choose.
Nick’s parents flew to Finland to meet the women. Raven was the first one to spend time with them. Since she was the only contestant to meet his family earlier in the season, and even went ice skating with Nick and his sister Bella, the meeting was more comfortable.
Vanessa then met Nick’s family, but told his mother that she was having doubts about getting engaged so quickly after meeting him. She loves her life in Canada and was concerned about leaving her family there. Obviously, Vanessa created a cloud of doubt over the idea that Nick would end the show engaged. At the same time that Vanessa was talking to his mom, Nick was also getting a pep talk from his Dad who was concerned that Vanessa would leave him heart-broken if he proposed to her … as though Nick needed more stress about making the right decision.
After the women met Nick’s parents, he spent more time with his family, and then spent another day with each of the women.
He took Vanessa horseback riding in the snowy fields of Finland. They even met Santa Claus! Once the two of them spent time alone with each other and began a serious conversation, Vanessa expressed concern about the fact that Nick still had a connection to Raven. She did not want to get a rose if he just liked her a little more than Raven. Nick tried to reassure her before their date was over.
On his date with Raven, the two of them went ice skating together, followed by cuddling up in front of a fire. Raven seemed more confident in their relationship than Vanessa was. They had fun together and she told him she was in love with him.
Nick then picked out an engagement ring from Neil Lane, who apparently also traveled to Finland for the occasion.
At the rose ceremony, Raven was the first to show up. She was excited and happy, but Nick told her she was not the one. He seemed almost more upset than she was, as he cried while walking her to the car.
Then it was Vanessa’s turn to show up for the rose ceremony.
Nick was worried Vanessa would turn him down. In the end, Nick made his decision, took a chance and proposed to Vanessa. She enthusiastically said “yes” and he put the ring on her finger.
Nick and Vanessa are engaged!
Of course, only time will tell if the two of them are able to make things work in the long run. The two looked awkward and Vanessa looked unhappy during the After the Final Rose show. Let’s hope things thaw during the coming year.
The fun is not over, yet. Next week, on March 20, watch Nick Viall compete on Dancing with the Stars. It will be interesting to see if his new fiance shows up to lend him emotional support.
Meanwhile, Rachel will begin filming The Bachelorette 2017 during the third week of March. Her show will premiere on May 22 at 8:00 p.m. on ABC. But, unlike most prior bachelorettes, she had the opportunity to meet some of the men who will be on her season during the After the Final Rose show following The Bachelor. Looks like a fun season ahead!
