The Bachelor 12: Finale Live Thoughts
On tonight's finale of The Bachelor, Matt will propose to either Shayne or Chelsea.  Personally, I think the guy's nuts.  He's hardly known these women and has had very limited interactions with them but reality tv will make a person do funny things.  He'll take both women back to England to meet his family, who will give their opinion as to who he should choose.  As in every finale, I expect him to say things like: I'm in love with two women, I'm so confused, this is the hardest decision I've ever had to make, and the like.  Many viewers feel that the preview gave it away that Chelsea won but we'll see for ourselves.  I'll be here all hour with live updates so keep refreshing and post your comments, too!

I love London!  I want to go there so badly! 

Chelsea is up first for the London date.  They're up in the giant observation wheel, which would give me a heart attack.  I hate heights.  That thing is ridiculous.  She's really lightened up and opened up a lot in the last few episodes.  Things went very well.  His family seemed to like her.

Shayne's turn.  It's weird that she has never been to Europe.  They go on a double decker bus ride to take a little tour.  Shayne doesn't do as well as Chelsea did to start but she wins over his family by the end of the date.

Matt's family is no help in making a decision.

Back to Barbados.  Matt takes Chelsea up in a helicopter ride.  For someone who doesn't like PDA, Chelsea has sure been affectionate this episode.  She told him she's falling in love with him and he said the same.

Shayne's there now and they're going parasailing. She told Matt she loves him through her gift.  I think he's picking her.

Cue Matt's confusion.  He says he has no idea what he's doing.

Final rose ceremony.  Chelsea's out of the limo first.  Ugh, she's about to get dumped.  This is why the girl was closed off in the first place.

I hate this part. 

Okay, let me give Chelsea a little credit for not taking her rejection lying down.  She's definitely giving Matt a hard time about it.

Shayne wins.  She got her proposal.  It was actually pretty cute.  I'm not gonna lie.  I got a little teary.
