The Dramatic Proposal

“I should have done this a long time ago.”

He continued,

“I’ve made some bad decisions but the best decision was running back to you. I can’t imagine a life without you. You have shown me a love that is patient, a love that is kind, and I truly believe that you are my soulmate. I’m ready to face this life with you and all that comes with it, the good and the bad. I want to do this in front of everyone because I want to show you that I should have done this a long time ago.”

“Will you marry me?”

Then Lauren replied,

“YES!”

The host of the show, Chris Harrison humorously said,

“I do hope that this engagement lasts a longer time.”

Arie: ‘She was worth the pain’

Arie definitely had to wait for her and had she not gave the positive answer, he would really be heartbroken. So, he is really happy now and says she is definitely worth it. He was attracted to her from the start but due to something or the other the right time did not come. He shared,

“I know it’s easy to sit at home and judge, but no love story is perfect. I think for us I took that risk because it was worth it. She was on my mind day and night – there was a lot of guilt that came with that because I did make that decision in Peru. But taking that risk was so worth it.”

Arie’s reaction to the haters

‘Every coin has two sides.’ There were those who loved the couple and wished for their better future and there were also people who had nothing to do with the couple but to hate them and troll hate messages. So what is Arie’s take on the hater? He gave one of the badass replies,

“It doesn’t matter. She’s sitting next to me. I have her heart and she has my heart and that’s all the maters to me. ‘This is why I did this.”

He then said,

“I do regret proposing that day because I wasn’t fully ready. I think the pressure of this – the pressure of being The Bachelor, knowing that there’s a timeline, and having to make the decision on that day.”

However, she has a big heart and in the end, she concluded saying,

“I’m always going to have love in my heart for you – you were my fiancé and I did fall in love with you. But I’m moved on, I’m ready for the next chapter to find somebody better suited to me, like I hope Lauren is for you. I don’t want to keep looking back in the past. I wanna move forward.”
