After the finale of Season 20 of "The Bachelor" aired on Monday night, the below GIF is, well, dead.
Although Ben Higgins told both Lauren Bushnell and Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher that he loved them, he ended up making his final decision and breaking one girl's heart on Monday night. Ben, 27, got down on one knee and proposed to Lauren B. during the finale, sending home a distraught JoJo.
"I'm so confused and blindsided," JoJo told Ben in a heartbreaking moment. "I just want the kind of love that I can count on," she added in the limo.
But the somber mood changed when Lauren arrived.
"You're the person I want to spend my life with," Lauren told Ben before he asked her to marry him with a Neil Lane diamond ring. "Lauren, you're my person. I'm lucky. I'm real lucky," Ben said, smiling.
Lauren B. is a 25-year-old flight attendant from Marina Del Rey, California. Throughout the entire season, she and Ben have had incredible chemistry and pretty much confirmed their adorableness when they looked oh so cute rescuing baby turtles in Jamaica.
"To be honest, I think I knew I was in love with Lauren a while ago," Ben wrote in his blog on People following the Jamaica dates. "Our relationship progressed faster than any other relationship I had had here. From the very beginning it just seemed so easy and so right. And I could tell she was feeling it too. For as long as I even consciously tried to keep myself from getting too carried away, I could not deny that I was in love with Lauren."
Here's hoping this "Bachelor" romance lasts.
