Anyway, it's time for the final rose ceremony. FINALLY. DeAnna stands waiting, as Chris Harrison greets the first limousine to arrive. It's Jason. Uh-oh. He's up first? Not a good sign. He tells us in a voiceover that nothing's felt this right before. He says today's the day he's going to be engaged.
He hugs DeAnna, who tells him he looks great, which he credits to his orange tie, which he credits to Ty, because she's a Georgia peach. He gets down on one knee. "No, I can't," she says. Nice of her to wait until after he got down on bended knee, huh?
Well. He stands up. "Just let me talk to you. You have no idea how much I care about you," she says. She uses the words "amazing" and "perfect" but says she's in love with someone else. Jason draws his mouth into a line. "I can't believe this," he says. "I thought you felt it too. What's wrong?" he says. She lies and says she meant everything she ever said to him. But her heart is somewhere else.
"You said that. I heard you say that," says Jason. He looks up to the sky. "I really did fall in love with you," he says. I believe him, actually. They hug, and she blinks back a tear. "I have to walk you out," she says, sniffling as they walk down the path. They hug again at the limousine, and don't say anything.
Jason gets in and rides off, holding the ring. He sighs. "I'm completely shocked," he says, adding, "Why me?" He says he was so ready to be love again. "I was so ready to begin again." He figures she wanted something that he couldn't offer her. He talks about safety and security, and then living on the edge, and then returning to the safety and security, and he thought he had all that. Well, if she thinks she wouldn't be living on the edge with him, she obviously never watched him play golf. "The only for-sure thing I have is my little boy," he says. The camera doesn't leave his face until it gets, if not the outright tears, the moistening eyes it demands.
