Andy Baldwin faces an excruciating choice between Bevin and Tessa,
before making the commitment of his life in the gripping two-hour
season finale that ends with one heartbroken bachelorette in tears and
the other engaged to be married, on "The Bachelor: Officer and a
Gentleman," MONDAY, MAY 21 (9:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television
Andy returns to his childhood home of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to share his experience of a lifetime with his family and asks them for guidance in making one of the most difficult decisions of his life – choosing between the two remaining women. Tessa joins Andy and his family for lunch, and when she leaves, Bevin arrives to join the family for dinner. Which woman will his family think is best suited for their son? Then, with time running out, Andy returns to Oahu, Hawaii for his final two dates.
On his first tryst, the Bachelor swoops Bevin away on a helicopter ride over the scenic coast with hiking and picnicking in the mountains. Andy takes Tessa horseback riding on the beach before they swim and canoodle in the ocean. After each woman professes her love in a last attempt to capture his heart, Andy delivers a devastating rejection. A tearful and heartbroken bachelorette must walk away from the man with whom she wanted to spend the rest of her life.
At long last, in a deeply romantic scene that could literally jump off of a movie screen, the officer and gentleman gives out his final rose and an engagement ring with a life-changing proposal to the woman who has captured his heart.
The remaining two women are: Bevin, 28, clinic research coordinator, who currently resides in Palo Alto, CA and Tessa, 26, social worker, who currently resides in San Francisco, CA.
Hosted by Chris Harrison, "The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman" is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss and Lisa Levenson are the executive producers. Martin Hilton and David Bohnert are the co-executive producers.
