It’s a long-standing tradition on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” to have the final two contestants each present the leading man or woman with some sort of gift, and it happens again here. In a new preview from Monday night’s finale, we see J.P. Rosenbaum hand Ashley what is a rather personal gift — complete with a childhood photo along with this letter about their time together:
“My dearest Ashley: This is the first chapter of the greatest love story ever told. The past few months have been the happiest of my life and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. Meeting you has changed my life forever and falling in love with you has been the best thing that’s ever happened to me. When we look back on this time years from now, still happy and very much in love, we will always remember this time in our lives where ‘Ashley and JP’ first began. I love you, baby, with all my heart and I can’t wait for the next chapter. Love always, J”
After reading this, it’s really hard to see that Ashley could pick anyone but J.P. — even if she and Ben do have a pretty strong connection together. No matter what, this is getting set up as though the loser will be completely and totally crushed.
On Sunday, the previously-eliminated guys are also returning for “The Men Tell All.” Are you excited to see what happens during the finale? To view recent “Bachelor Pad” cast photos, follow the link here.
