Bachelorette Finale: Jillian Names Her Man

To find out which Bachelorette contestant won Jillian’s heart, read on.



Canadian beauty Jillian Harris finally found what she was looking for — a lover and a best friend — when she giddily accepted a proposal from Chicago computer software consultant Ed Swiderski on the season finale of The Bachelorette Monday night.

After Harris had assured him that he was indeed the one (“There’s no doubt in my mind that I’m madly in love with you,” she enthused), 30-year-old Swiderski got down on one knee and placed a $60,000 Neil Lane platinum and diamond ring on Harris’s finger.

The mild-mannered Swiderski piqued Harris’s interest early on in the series. He left in week five after feeling pressure from his job, causing Harris to sob uncontrollably. Then, confessing to Harris, 29, a restaurant designer, that he couldn’t stop thinking about her, he returned.
As the season continued, Harris was concerned that neither she nor Swiderski had met each other’s families. Hoping to allay her doubts, Swiderski flew his parents to Hawaii, the couple’s final romantic destination, for a meet-and-greet.

Still, the deal was not yet done. Harris’s parents gave their daughter a big thumbs-up on the two remaining bachelors on Monday night’s episode, leaving the final decision up to her.

Dressed in a strapless ivory gown, Harris stood on an outdoor platform waiting for Encinitas, Calif., business developer Kiptyn Locke to arrive. After politely breaking the news to him that he wasn’t the one, she waited for Swiderski to arrive.

But in true Bachelorette fashion, it’s not over until all twists are revealed: Philadelphia realtor Reid Rosenthal was the next to arrive. Dismissed a week earlier, the third runner-up was back, pouring his heart out to Harris and falling to one knee to propose.

Harris was visibly moved by the gesture, but had to send Rosenthal away — again. “I have fallen in love with somebody,” she explained. “I can’t let them go now.”

That person, of course, was Swiderski. He arrived in a white limo and strode confidently towards Harris, then declared, “I want to be with you forever. I want to have a family with you. I want you to give me a hard time when we’re 80 years old. Jillian, will you marry me?”

“Absolutely!” Harris gushed.


She picked:


She rejected:


how do u reject that body?

n my bb reid

Did Jillian make the right decision? What do you think of Reid? And who should be the next Bachelor??
i guess yes..if she is into him after the e.d and those green shorts it must be love. i would be happy if Reid or Kiptyn were the next Bachelor...

Yeah's he's a fugmonster. It must be love.
sassi214 28th-Jul-2009 01:43 pm (UTC)
He's not bad looking at all.
But I could never be with someone ~sexually~ if he wore that shorts/tank combo anywhere near my presence.
His legs look shaved.
And he looks like Brad Garrett in that last photo of him.

Whatever, I don't even watch this shit.

flaming_poof 28th-Jul-2009 06:29 pm (UTC)
Oh you gotta give them a few weeks/issues there are many more covers they can milk from this:
1. The Proposal
2. The Engagement Party
3. The Wedding Planning
4. The All Important Wedding / Sham
5. The Honeymoon
And then comes the divorce issue, I say give it 6-7 weeks max

chiliipeppers 28th-Jul-2009 07:25 am (UTC)
I wish I could go back in time and kill reality TV before it started. No joke.
allhopelost88 28th-Jul-2009 07:26 am (UTC)

Start with the Real World.
sassi214 28th-Jul-2009 01:46 pm (UTC)
First season of Real World was SO FUCKING GOOD, ngl.
Heather B walking (and falling) with Norman's dog Gouda was better than every other reality clip ever produced and broadcasted.

Would explain the obsession with tight bathing shorts...but not why he didn't have better fashion sense.
juanitatequila 28th-Jul-2009 07:52 am (UTC)
LOL I love your icon sfm, do you have a gif version of it?!
sellotape 28th-Jul-2009 07:36 am (UTC)
okay, so I saw a headline about this on yahoo that said something basically to the effect of

"'Bachelorette' makes her choice in season finale"

and the first thing that came to my mind was
"... when the hell did Bjork get her own TV show?"
thebigquiet 28th-Jul-2009 09:39 am (UTC)
Lol but omg a Bjork Bachelorette would be amazing.
mindofthebeheld 28th-Jul-2009 07:38 am (UTC)

mindofthebeheld 28th-Jul-2009 08:01 am (UTC)
They're so cute, it makes me sick.
ex_lovergir 28th-Jul-2009 07:58 am (UTC)
Yes, they're the only truly successful couple of this whole damn franchise. It's pretty sad.
joaniemaloney 28th-Jul-2009 07:39 am (UTC)
Wes was such a douche.
& I can't remember the guy's name, but who was the winemaker?! He was cute. I thought she was going to pick him for sure but he got kicked out pretty early.:/
benvolio87 28th-Jul-2009 02:54 pm (UTC)

spicegalaxy 28th-Jul-2009 07:40 am (UTC)
