The season finale of ABC’s “The Bachelorette” Sunday was unlike any other of its kind.
Contrary to the proposals that took place on dramatic mountaintops or cliffs overlooking the ocean in seasons past, the climax of this season’s last episode took place on a quaint street corner in the Caribbean island of Curacao.
And on that corner, southern belle Bachelorette Emily Maynard said yes – to Jef Holm, a 27-year-old entrepreneur from Utah, who remained a consistent frontrunner for his edgy style and witty personality throughout the season.
“I’m so grateful that you came here and put your heart on the line one more time,” Jef said. “What I’m about to ask you aren’t just empty words. What I’m about to ask you is a forever thing.”
Jef then dropped down to one knee with a Neil Lane diamond and popped the question, to which the blonde beauty responded: “Yes.”
