Blake was robbed in the season finale of The Bachelorette

Blake was robbed in the season finale of The Bachelorette

Did "Bachelorette" Becca Kufrin choose Garrett Yrigoyen or Blake Horstmann on tonight's finale?

To accept Yrigoyen's onscreen proposal - along with a Neil Lane engagement ring featuring almost four carats of diamonds - Kufrin, 28, wore a white Randi Rahm halter gown worth a whopping $18,000. It sounded like a softball question, but really, he was teeing up a rather uncomfortable moment. From the way ABC edited the two family visits, Blake was the clear victor in the clubhouse, and Becca even admitted to the camera that a relationship with Garrett "would be a bigger risk".

"The Bachelorette" victor Garrett Yrigoyen said he didn't intend for anybody to be "hurt" by his past decisions to "like" a series of offensive posts on social media.

Despite an entire segment that followed about this topic, the show didn't actually explain what Garrett meant with "stuff" - which is a pretty crucial detail. Yrigoyen has liked social media posts mocking the LGBTQ community, immigrants, Parkland survivors, among others.

This became quite the controversy online, and almost overshadowed the actual show.

Yrigoyen deleted his old Instagram account shortly after the posts were made public and issued an apology on a new profile. Many correctly assumed this reaction meant that Garrett would win, as it's rare for contestants to address off-screen drama while the season is airing.

"I didn't realize the effect behind a double tap or a like on Instagram".

"I am sorry to those who I offended, and I also take full responsibility for my "likes" on Instagram that were hurtful and offensive", he wrote.

Yrigoyen, on the After the Final Rose special, once again apologized for his controversial Instagram history that was shared online by Bachelor alum Ashley Spivey in May. I didn't mean to offend anybody.

"I would make sure to, like, yeah, just be that man that is strong for her, make sure she's safe and guarded", Garrett said tearfully.

Another detail left out of this segment? The announcement likely will not be made for about another month, but Becca and Garrett just shared their thoughts on who they think should hand out roses next. Kufrin also tells the cameras that she got clarity during the final week, saying she could see Horstmann standing in front of her, professing his love. "She is all mine", Yrigoyen said to the cameras after slipping a Neil Lane diamond on Kufrin's finger. "I know what it feels like to feel this way". Garrett, I love you. "So when we started talking about that, we got through that together, and we're growing, we're progressing and we're moving forward".

Garrett proposes to Becca in the season finale of "The Bachelorette". Garrett admitted it crossed his mind.

"I think that we could be right and we could be partners, but I just think there's a better fit for us out there", she added. "This is a very common condition, and it's not an unusual thing that makes you non-functional or bad in any way", she says.

'It's hard that first night because I'm really just trying to go off of my gut instinct and there were so many conversations and i had to make a lot of tough cuts. Read on to find out how Blake reacts when Becca sends him home. Garrett repeated that he can only move foward and not make the same mistakes.

"We've been honest and open and transparent with one another since the beginning".
