Oh, GOD, no audience questions! Some delicate thing giggles out "Hi, Reid," and laughs for five minutes, and Harrison gives a rose to give her, and he pins it on his own lapel, because he's in love with himself, and then she actually asks him out, and Reid says, "How old are you?" and everyone laughs, and then he admits that he hasn't started dating yet, because it's too soon.
After a commercial break, Jillian is showing off her ring, because she's been engaged for two months but hasn't been able to show off the ring, like how annoying are women for whom the ring seems to be the only reason to get engaged. Then she babbles on about how being on this show has made her relationship with Ed stronger, which is something contestants like to say a lot, and I have to point out what a load of bullshit that is, given that Trista and Ryan are still the only couple to actually get married.
And then Harrison is asking Jillian about her "Ed better not fucking disappoint me" comment, and she seems somewhat embarrassed about how not classy it is to swear right before getting engaged, and I would argue that taking a few guys for a sexual test drive ought to be more embarrassing to her, but that's just me. Harrison asks if she thought Ed might not propose. Jillian says she did. "What if he says, 'I changed my mind'?" she said. Well, that would be the most precedented finale in Bachelorette history.
And then Ed comes out to thunderous applause, and they hug and kiss, and Jillian squeals, then the two of them talk about what a relief it is to be able to be public with their relationship now.
Harrison asks Ed if he's glad he decided to take a chance on Jillian instead of on his career. Real hardball interview Harrison's got going on here. Ed says he figured out in Spain that he was going to propose, and he reminds everyone that he was the only one who got to hang out in the fantasy suite that time, and I hate to tell hiim that it was his next unsuccessful visit to the fantasy suite that everyone will remember.
Harrison asks Jillian if the proposal lived up to her dreams, and Jillian says she was going to pass out. And then Ed is talking now about being nervous, and then Harrison says Jillian is beaming and she says it's because she's so happy, and then she and Ed start doing it right there on the couch.
So then what are the future plans? Hopefully they include fading into obscurity. Apparently, Jillian's moving to Chicago in September, and Harrison asks if they're worried about the transition, and Ed talks about how they've only spent five days apart and Jillian burbles about what a great team they are, and Harrison presses for a wedding date, and Jillian seems to want to know, too, and Ed says they're "certainly probably" going to get married in the next 12 months. Well, I'll believe it when I see it. Everyone claps. "We love each other, we have fun with each other, and yeah, like 'take it slow.' Why? We haven't taken it slow from the start," says Jillian, because yeah, The Bachelorette method is a sure-fire way to enjoy a long and happy marriage.
