Bachelor Jake Pavelka Proposes to Vienna in the Season Finale, Ali Fedotowsky Named the Next Bachelorette

The Bachelor Finale: Are You Happy With Jake's Decision?

Oh the drama. I wouldn't call the finale of The Bachelor the most "shocking Bachelor ever" — even though Chris Harrison might disagree — but it definitely managed to raise a few eyebrows. As the final rose ceremony came to a close, a very emotional Jake turned away audience favorite Tenley for Vienna. The reason: Jake said that talking with Tenley about marriage didn't "feel right" and that something was off — as opposed to the hot heat he's experienced with Vienna, who was often painted as the villain of the house.

Jake claimed that he had to follow his heart — but will he live to regret the decision? Tenley herself brought up a good point during the After the Final Rose, saying that she questioned his feelings for Vienna if he supposedly felt so strong for Tenley, too. I think it's a valid argument, and time will only tell for sure if these two are headed towards yet another Bachelor wedding like Jason and Molly (we at least know that Jake's headed towards Dancing With the Stars!).

The other big reveal of the evening: Ali will indeed be the next Bachelorette as many of you expected and were hoping. I'm already looking forward to that new season, but for now, let's discuss Jake. Share your excitement — or vent your frustration! — over his choice here.
