"Episode 2210" - The compelling live three-hour television event will begin with America watching along with the studio audience as Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s journey to find love comes to its astonishing conclusion. The Bachelor prepares to make one of the most difficult choices of his life, having narrowed down the field to two women with whom he is madly in love - Becca K. and Lauren B. - and told both of them that he loves them. Who does Arie, after much soul-searching, see as his future wife? Find out on the season finale of "The Bachelor," MONDAY, MARCH 5 (8:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
Arie hopes that with the help of his family, he will be able to find clarity about which of the two final women are right for him and who his family will embrace. When Lauren arrives, she instantly charms everyone with her outgoing personality. She has a heart-to-heart talk with Arie's mom, breaking down and admitting how painful it would be if she lost Arie. Becca, who is normally confident, is shaken by the reality that there is another woman who wants the same thing she does: to marry Arie. Arie's family is very impressed with Becca as well. Is Arie's family right? There is a type of woman that Arie always dates, but shouldn't marry? Should he listen to his head or his heart?
Will his last dates with both women help him determine the answer to this seemingly impossible decision? Lauren is full of surprises and turns an unexpected corner in their relationship. The couple ends up connecting on a deeper level than before. Becca shares a heartfelt scrapbook of their journey and it reminds him of all the things he loves about her. Their connection is undeniable. He truly is in love with both women and could happily marry either one. So how can he choose? Or will he just walk away? An unbelievable twist that no one saw coming develops into a jolting, must-see ending.
The final two women are:
Rebecca (Becca K.), 27, publicist, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Lauren B., 25, technology salesperson, Dallas, Texas
