Here's a recap of Monday's "After the Final Rose" show:
Desiree, who was eliminated after the hometown date episode with Sean Lowe, will be the new Bachelorette. Viewers learn that Catherine and Sean are still together. Sean says that he was nervous when host Chris Harrison handed him that letter from Catherine. "I love everything about her... You are my best friend. The love of my life," Sean tells Catherine. Sean had tears in his eyes when they watched the proposal. "I love her so much," he says. Catherine says she was shaking when Sean proposed and Sean says he had to tell her to look at the ring because otherwise she wasn't paying attention. They're going to get married very soon and ABC will telecast it. She hasn't moved to Dallas yet but her bags are packed although Sean says you never know when God will throw you a curve ball. "Whatever happens we're going to be together," Sean says.
"I'm on top of the world right now," Sean says. He's excited to bring her out on stage. "I want to be with her," he says. Chris says Sean lights up when Catherine is around. But first, Chris asks him about Lindsay. He says it was as tough as when his grandpa died. "I'm excited to see her... I'm a little nervous," Sean says. "I still don't have a reason... outside of being in love with Catherine," Sean says.
"I think that you handled it really well," Lindsay tells Sean. She says that she grew stronger from the situation and that she's grateful for that. She says that she felt like she was going to get engaged when she saw him the final time. She says she kept wondering what had gone wrong. Sean couldn't say anything more than that Catherine was The One and that he didn't know it until the final dates. Lindsay says prayer and the support of her family got her through it.
Here's a recap of Monday's "Bachelor" finale:
"The Bachelor" Sean Lowe proposes to Catherine and says a painful goodbye to Lindsay. Sean Lowe tells Catherine: "I knew from the very beginning that you were someone I wanted to be around." "I think the world of you and every time we have to say goodbye, I miss you. I don't want to say goodbye anymore. Catherine, I want to spend the rest of my life telling you how much I love you," Sean says. He gets down on one knee and asks her to marry him. "Is this for real?" she asks. He says it is. "I'm so addicted to you," Catherine says. He gives her the final rose. "You're absolutely my best friend... You're my prince," she says. "I'm the lucky one," he says. They ride into the sunset on an elephant.
Sean tells Lindsay she has been "such a surprise." "You just blow me away. You really do." "Lindsay, this is the toughest thing I've ever had to do... As of yesterday I didn't know what I was doing." He tells Lindsay that he knows that he loves her. When she asks if it's something about her, Sean says: "I can't think of one thing that you possess that I don't want in a wife... I'm so sorry." Lindsay tells him it's OK. "OK I'm going to go... This is really painful." She's shocked. She says she's happy that he found love but that she can't imagine her life without him. "I feel so blessed to have gotten to know you," Sean tells Lindsay as he walks her out. When Lindsay drives away, host Chris Harrison delivers a note to Sean from Catherine. Last-minute love note or something bad? First, commercials. "I will love you forever, if you let me," Catherine's note says.
