With Time Running Out, Jillian Makes a Momentous Decision That Will Change Her Life

"Episode 510" � In this gripping special conclusion, Jillian, the vivacious restaurant designer who began her search for love with 30 bachelors, has survived a dramatic, rocky road and found herself falling in love with two wonderful men, Ed and Kiptyn. As she prepares to make one of the most difficult decisions of her life, she invites the two remaining bachelors to the Big Island of Hawaii to meet her family. Then the men have one last chance to lay their hearts on the line, each trying to guarantee that he will be the one to get Jillian's final rose. But in the most dramatic and emotional conclusion in "Bachelorette" history, there is an unexpected confession that changes everything. Will Jillian find her soul mate? It's a decision that will change her life forever, on the Season Finale of "The Bachelorette," MONDAY, JULY 27 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Jillian continues her amorous adventures on the Big Island of Hawaii where her mom, dad, grandma and cousin arrive to assist her with one of the toughest decisions of her life. Not wanting to see her heartbroken again, her family grills both Ed and Kiptyn about their intentions and their feelings for Jillian.

After her family weighs in on her options, Jillian takes Ed on a panoramic helicopter ride above the Big Island's bubbling lava pits. Jillian is falling for this sensitive bachelor, but time is running out for her to make sure she has real chemistry with him. Landing in a lush jungle, the two enjoy a private lunch and a romantic dip in a private lagoon, but Ed must convince Jillian that they are compatible.

Next, Jillian takes Kiptyn on a romantic boat ride to a secluded beach, where the couple share a picnic lunch and frolic in the water. Their physical attraction is undeniable, but Jillian still needs to make sure that Kiptyn is prepared for a future with her. Will he finally share the depth of his feelings for her?

As the moment of decision approaches, Jillian is torn. She is in love with both men and knows she would have an incredible life with either one. A tearful Jillian wrestles with her emotions and is ready to make her ultimate decision, but at the very last minute one man's shocking change of heart makes Jillian question everything. Does she find her best friend, soul mate and future husband?
