I went another season without watching "The Bachelor", and it came to an end last night. \


SPOILER! SPOILER! SPOILER!











It ended with Nick proposing to Vanessa.  She said yes, of course, but we'll see if this "relationship" ends in marriage.

First, they had to travel to a cabin in the middle of nowhere, and get relationship counseling from Santa Claus. 

Even though Nick supposedly gave runner-up Raven her first "BIG O", she didn't give HIM enough to win.  Nick told "People" magazine, quote, "As much as I cared about Raven, I felt like the answer became more and more clear that [it] was Vanessa."

"I felt like I was fighting my feelings for Vanessa for a long time because there were other women involved.  However, once I was kind of able and free to kind of make my choice, I felt like my heart knew for a while."

It's all good.  Raven announced on the "After the Final Rose" special that she's heading to "Bachelor in Paradise". Insert eye-roll emoji...
