The winner is…
During her final date with Blake, Katie told him that she is falling in love with him. Neither of them had said the “L” word to each other until that moment.
“It’s scary to say because I promised myself that I wouldn’t say it to anybody unless I was sure,” Blake said. “I f–king love you, and I’m really excited about life with you.”
Katie responded, “Wow. I’m speechless because as you’re talking about love and sharing it, I’m relating. Like yes, I haven’t said it to anybody. I’ve held that close. It is a big deal. It’s a huge word. As much as I want to be stubborn and just like you, it’s scary and it’s crazy, but I f–king love you so much. And I couldn’t be happier that you’re here.”
Katie then said in a confessional, “I get to go into the fantasy suite with a guy that I love. I have not felt this happy in a long time. All I ever wanted was to find someone that loves me exactly as I am. I feel like he completes me.”
Well, Katie then had to tell Justin that she couldn’t continue with him. When he showed up for their overnight, she pulled him aside and told him they need to talk.
She told him, “I know how hard it was for you to tell me that you were falling in love. That is something that I have thought about for every night since. I was looking forward to today. However, I did have my overnight with Blake, and in that, I did tell him that I am falling in love with him. And that is something that I can only say once. You are someone I wanted to explore things with, but given how I now feel about Blake… it wouldn’t make sense for us to move forward and go on this date. It wouldn’t make sense for you to meet my family, and that’s where I’m at.”
Later in the episode, Blake met Katie‘s family for the first time and then the final rose ceremony took place.
He got down on one knee and proposed. They are engaged!
