In Case You Were Unhappy With 'The Bachelor' Finale Results...

Eat this. It got me through Sean Lowe's painful speech to losing finalist Lindsay Yenter!

In case you hadn't heard, Lowe proposed to finalist Catherine Giudici on Monday's much-anticipated episode.

His selection was a huge surprise in the media world (and me!), as rumors had surfaced before the episode's airing that Lowe had asked for Yenter's hand in marriage. Regardless, the 3-hour episode was full of suspense and brought about immense impatience among viewers (this guy!).

"I don't want to say goodbye anymore," Lowe said to her. "I want to spend the rest of my life telling you I love you ... Will you marry me?"

She said yes! And I cried. Who else is beyond stoked about this? 

Giudici is a graphic designer at Amazon as well as a vegan food blogger.

All I can say is, YAY! Things weren't looking so good for Guidici at the beginning of the episode, when she had an awkward meeting with Lowe's mom and got upset with him for not saying "I love you" back. But hey, she won in the end! This makes me so happy! She was truly the underdog here, and I really hope their relationship lasts.  

In an interview released prior to Monday's installment, Lowe said of the finale, "And the emotion kind of comes out of me in the last episode. You’ll see me cry, and you’ll see the women cry as well. With Lindsay and Catherine as my final two women, I had a hard time. I think America has seen that — figuring out which woman is best suited for me. Or am I supposed to be with either of them? It’s kind of grueling for me to think about! I got some mental warfare going on, going back and forth, back and forth."

The religious Christian added that God played a role in his decision, stating, "All week long, I kept asking myself: Can I marry her? Can I marry her? I was just trying to figure out what’s my heart telling me to do. Did I feel like God is leading me in a direction? I didn’t get any answers all week long. I was really starting to stress out about it. I think it was the night before the very last day when I got some clarity. I knew the decision I was about to make was the right decision for me."
