Editors please note: The Season Finale of "The Bachelorette" will be followed by a one-hour special, "The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose," airing from 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET.
DeAnna invites Jesse and Jason to visit her family in Georgia. They are justifiably concerned after watching her heart break over Brad Womack. Her family wants to make sure that whoever she chooses has real feelings for her this time. When Jason arrives, he feels right at home and tells her sister, Chrissy, he is honestly in love with DeAnna and can see himself marrying her. Jason also asks DeAnna's surprised father for permission to marry her.
Things don't go as smoothly with Jesse. He is very nervous, and although he seems to have good intentions, he isn't able to put DeAnna's family at ease. DeAnna's father has a heart-to-heart talk with his daughter and he expresses his concerns about both men. Then in a surprising move, DeAnna gathers her entire extended family to meet both men at once. The bachelors, who have no idea they will both be at this gathering, are shocked to see one another. After the men leave, the Bachelorette's family offer their advice.
With time running out, DeAnna returns to Grand Bahama Island in preparation for her last intimate dates with Jesse and Jason. Then in one of the biggest shocks in series history, DeAnna is confronted by one of the bachelors she rejected, causing her to question all the decisions she has made to this point.
Pushing forward, DeAnna takes Jesse on a seaplane to a deserted island, where they spend a wonderful afternoon exploring the beach. Jesse admits to her that he is head over heels in love and thinks he has found his soul mate, but is terrified that she will break his heart.
A day of scuba diving among the tropical fish and sharks await Jason and DeAnna. That night, Jason surprises her with a special gift and tells her he is in love with her. She is touched by his openness and moved by his emotional declaration of love.
DeAnna spends the last day thinking back through her whole Bachelorette experience. Is one of these men meant to be her husband? Will she find her true love at last? In one of the most exciting season finales ever, DeAnna makes an extraordinary decision that will change her life forever.
The remaining two men are:
Jesse, 26, professional snowboarder from Breckenridge, CO.
Jason, 31, account executive from Kirkland, WA.
