8 people who have never watched'The Bachelorette pick Becca's soulmate

The backstory, if you missed it: Right after "The Bachelorette" premiered in May, a former "Bachelor" contestant revealed that Garrett had "liked" posts on Instagram that made fun of transgender people; mocked feminists; claimed Parkland, Fla., school shooting survivor David Hogg was a crisis actor; and joked about throwing an immigrant child over the border.

ABC dramatically splices together video of both guys on separate, unnecessarily-long boat rides headed toward the dock where they each intend to get on a knee. They also revealed the little habits they've learned about each other since filming ended, Garrett shares his thoughts behind the proposal, and Becca shows off her unbelievable Neil Lane three-stone diamond engagement ring all in the video interview above!

Yrigoyen, on the After the Final Rose special, once again apologized for his controversial Instagram history that was shared online by Bachelor alum Ashley Spivey in May. So I put out an apology. I didn't mean to offend anybody. "I think there is a better fit for us out there". "We do have a conversation and you'll just have to see that unfold". "We've been honest and open and transparent with one another since the beginning, and when that all came out, we attacked it because I feel like when I was liking things, it was going against things she stands for and that made it really hard on us as a couple". "Because we were so solid, I wasn't seeing everything". "Because we were so constant, I felt like I was overlooking other relationships", Kufrin said to Horstmann during the breakup.

Kufrin said she doesn't condone the "Instagram situation". "I just want to move forward and to learn and to grow and to continue to educate ourselves".

As they left, Becca later asked Garrett, "Who was toughest on you?"

"I lived at the gym, I lived on the Stairmaster", Bibiana Julian, who also appeared on The Bachelor Winter Games spinoff earlier this year, told E! "It was affecting my family", he continued.

"I was able to get a little bit of closure". Eagles! Then Becca admits that Garrett reminds her of her deceased father and Garrett tears up talking about he thinks her dad is watching them and, well, game over.

"I know that he stands by his apology and he feels so bad for everyone that he did offend and he didn't mean it".

At the end of their date, Garrett gushed, "I know that you're the person that I need in my life to make me be a better version of myself every day but I want to make sure that I'm the person that does that to you as well".

The future: When the proposal finally came it nearly seemed like an afterthought given how long we had to wait to see it (although I understand why the producers wouldn't have made Blake sit and watch it). One would think that, the day before a new guy asks for your daughter's hand in marriage, you wouldn't be anxious about some jackwagon you knew for about 10 minutes before he bailed.
