‘The Golden Bachelor’ spoilers: Here’s who wins
Fans keeping up with The Golden Bachelor spoilers are eager to hear who wins. According to Reality Steve, Gerry Turner gets down on one knee for Theresa Nist, sending Leslie Fhima home.
Gerry invited both Theresa and Leslie on Fantasy Suites dates, which gave him clarity on his final decision. Gerry had his first Fantasy Suite date with Leslie, and he couldn’t take his mind off her at the start of his date with Theresa. However, as his date with Theresa progressed, she and Gerry dug deep into their personal histories and life goals. Theresa explained more about her job to Gerry, which impressed him. After spending the night together, many fans assumed Theresa would be the one.
During the finale week, Theresa and Leslie will meet Gerry’s daughters. A preview for the episode shows one of Gerry’s daughters disapproving of one of the women. This may also sway Gerry toward picking Theresa.
Gerry spoke to Entertainment Tonight about his final decision. “When you’re down to the last two people over that amount of time and that much investment, you really have strong feelings for them. And it’s, oh, my God, it was an incredibly bad situation,” Gerry explained.
Host Jesse Palmer says Gerry Turner’s ending is ‘by far the most heartbreaking’
While Gerry Turner chooses Theresa as The Golden Bachelor winner, he still has a lot of love for Leslie Fhima. And his breakup with Leslie is “by far the most heartbreaking” ending that the franchise has ever seen, according to host Jesse Palmer.
“He’s had a lot of very difficult goodbyes throughout the course of all of this, but the final goodbye is by far the most heartbreaking, the most difficult for him,” Palmer shared. “I think people are going to see that at the finale.”
Palmer went on to say that Gerry saying goodbye to Leslie was “the most emotional goodbye” he’s “ever seen in the show’s history — from Bachelor, Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise. I mean, it’s really gutting. It’s heart-wrenching.”
