The Bachelor: Season 17 Ep. 10 Finale Recap

All season long I've been asked these three questions: Who left the note? Will he propose? Is he really a born-again virgin.

I was right on two of them and the third one about Sean being a born-again virgin? I just laugh. There is no such thing as a born-again virgin. You are either a virgin or not a virgin. You can't just wake up one day and say, "Well, I've been born-again and I'm a virgin." You either had sex or chose not to, or just can't wheel. So with that being said, no, Sean is not a born-again virgin.

This final week, Sean, Catherine and Lindsay are still in Thailand and the girls get to meet Sean's family.  Sean told his family that he can picture both of them being his wife and can picture his life with both of them. His mom says that he should already know whom he's going to propose to if he was really in love with someone. I agree with his mom. Really, anybody can picture their life with anyone. I think that if you really love someone, you can't picture your life without them.


Catherine was first to meet Sean's family. The interview with the whole family was a success. The following day Lindsay gets her chance to meet her potential family. She sounded like she was being fake, but I'm sure ABC did some editing to portray that. Who knows?

How does Sean not know whom he's going to propose to? Proposing isn't just asking someone to go out with you and be your girlfriend. I'm pretty sure it means you are asking the other person to spend the rest of their life with you. I think there is a little bit of a difference. The hottest girl on the show is Sean's sister. Even Sean's mom is hot too.

Sean takes each girl on one last date before he makes his decision. At this point, I have no idea who he's picking. Part of me says he will make the safe bet and chose Lindsay. The other part of me says he will take the wild one: Catherine.


It's kind of like LeBron James’ decision when he picked Miami over Cleveland. Everyone thought he would stick with his hometown Cleveland, but he ended up taking his talents to Miami. I think Sean should take his talents to Catherine and win a championship. I think with Lindsay he will have a boring life, similar to people in Cleveland.

Rose Ceremony

Usually the first person to step out of the limo is the person who is getting gassed and in this season, it was Lindsay. It was a tough breakup with Lindsay and she was definitely shocked. Sean told her that he loves her and he doesn't have an answer on why he's sending her home. She asked Sean, "Was it me?" Sean then walked her to the limo and that was that.

Before Catherine arrived, Chris Harrison gave Sean a note. This was the mysterious note that people talked about all season long. I remember Catherine saying several episodes ago that she always gives Sean notes, so if you were paying attention then you would have guessed Catherine was the one who wrote the mystery letter at the end. It was a beautifully written letter about their past and what the future holds.

Everyone was skeptical about whether or not he will propose and, well, he did. Catherine accepted the final rose and is your winner. Sean said it was the best day of his life. Really? You broke up with a girl who you told you loved and seven minutes later you proposed to a girl you met seven weeks ago. What a day! Thank God Catherine is awesome. True beauty.

After the Final Rose

Sean said it was the toughest decision he's ever had to make. Sean told Lindsay that he didn't have a valid reason why she wasn't the one. He knew after their last one-on-one date that Catherine was the one for him.

Catherine later came out and gave her two cents on their relationship. She and Sean are wasting no time and are getting married soon. They also announced that they want their wedding to be broadcast on ABC. Sean is a mooch. He gets a free wedding ring and then the wedding paid for by ABC. He's a brilliant mooch, actually.

Chris Harrison announced at the end of the show that the new Bachelorette is Desiree. Who from ABC made this final decision? If you’re reading this, then give me a call and tell me why you decided on her. I think she will be a terrible Bachelorette. This show needs someone who has talent in the chest as well as someone not lame like her. She doesn’t have a great personality and she has that one tooth that really irritates me. I expect it to be brutal like Emily's season, but don't listen to me: I'm just a blogger. @mick1919 wants me to write a blog for that, what do you guys think??

This season is finally over with and I feel that it turned out to be pretty decent compared to all the other seasons. Sean is too nice of a guy and was very smart when choosing his words with girls, so there wasn't much to really make fun of.

Thank you to everyone who followed my blog weekly.  Hope you enjoyed this season and see you all next season!
