Jun 17, 2015

Two guys remain on the final episode of The Bachelorette, but only one has truly won Jillian’s heart. Kiptyn and Ed each meet Jillian’s parents[/kwlink] and get one final date before she makes her big decision. It’s time for the guys to lay their hearts on the line.

Meet the Parents

Jillian’s mom drills each of the guys with a list of 66 tough questions. In a heart-to-heart with Jillian’s dad, Ed admits that he loves Jillian and asks for her hand in marriage, whereas Kiptyn holds back. It’s easy to see where Jillian gets her fun side, when her father and Ed cut loose in grass skirts and coconut bras. While Ed seems to win over Jillian’s dad, Jillian’s mom and cousin are drawn to Kiptyn’s fun, active lifestyle and natural charm.

Ed’s Date

For Ed’s final date, Jillian takes him on a helicopter ride to a secluded lagoon near a stunning waterfall. Later, Jillian goes back to Ed’s hotel and discovers that the passion missing from their fantasy suite date is definitely there!

Kiptyn’s Date

The Dramatic Return

Jillian has made her decision, but it breaks her heart to say goodbye to Kiptyn, leaving him with his first ever broken heart. But before Ed arrives, fan-favorite Reid returns with a ring. Jillian is speechless and extremely confused. Reid admits that he’s in love with her and wishes that he had told her long ago. He even proposes! Though, Jillian seems tempted, she takes a few minutes to think. Ultimately she decides that her heart is with Ed. When Ed proposes, she couldn’t be happier or more in love.
