Bachelor Nation fans may be used to finales that run a little long — ahem, Peter Weber’s four-hour, two-night ending. However, The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart Season 1 finale will not extend its usual time slot. According to ABC’s schedule, the final episode on May 18 will start at 8 p.m. ET and end at 10 p.m. ET, per usual. This means the finale will be 2 hours long. 

Now, it seems the performance portion of the Listen to Your Heart finale will not take up the entire episode. Per the ABC press release, the final three couples will receive Fantasy Suite dates “to decide whether to take their relationship to the next level and if they can see a future together.” The release also revealed how each one will go. However, it didn’t name any names.

“The three couples react totally differently to the offer of a fantasy suite date,” the synopsis reads. “The news is devastating to one, welcomed by another, and declined by the other duo. Will they regret their decisions?”

Meanwhile, the competition heats up as the remaining Listen to Your Heart contestants perform in front of Kaitlyn Bristowe, Jason Tartick, Taye Diggs, Rita Wilson, and Jewel. And of course, the last rose ceremony will crown the season’s winner. But who will it be? Fans can tune in at 8 p.m. to find out.

Which couple wins ‘The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart’ in the finale?

If you don’t want to wait and see who wins The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart, the finale has been spoiled by Reality Steve. The franchise blogger revealed the last episode was filmed on Feb. 12, and there were only two couples who performed in Music City — Jamie and Trevor as well as Chris and Bri. 

According to Reality Steve, Trevor and Jamie performed “Speechless” by Dan + Shay. Then Chris and Bri sang Ed Sheeran’s “Give Me Love.” But in the end, Chris and Bri won. 

“After deliberation, judges determined Chris and Bri were the winners,” Reality Steve wrote on Twitter. “They won the opportunity to write and record some original music and make at least one music video. They will also be going on tour once the finale airs.”

Nevertheless, host Chris Harrison recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight and shared there will be some changes to the grand prize due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

“Obviously when we made that prize package, getting out and touring and concerts were a thing. So [I’m] not sure [what will happen],” Harrison said. “Clearly that is still part of it. As soon as they can do it safely, we’ll do that. Creating music, working with a music producer, [making a] music video, going on tour is all something that we definitely want to do as soon as we can safely do it.”

Meanwhile, Reality Steve explained Jamie and Trevor said they would stay together after Listen to Your Heart wrapped since they claimed to be falling in love. However, by April 13, the spoiler king shared Jamie and Trevor broke up. But even so, it’s likely viewers will have to hold on to find out what all the reality stars are up to now. So stay tuned.
