Cut to Brad standing on a stone dais in a garden, VO-ing about the hearts he's about to break -- including his own. The limo pulls up and discharges Jenni; the fact that she's first doesn't bode well for her. On the plus side, her hair looks really pretty. A nattily attired Chris Harrison opens the limo door for her and father-of-the-brides her to the top of the path, and then she heads down to Brad by herself. Jenni VO: If Brad proposes, it will make me "the happiest girl in the world," I want this so bad, et cetera. After her endless walk up the "aisle," Brad takes her hands. How are you? Good; you? Good. Brad gives a speech about liking her from the moment they met; her beautiful smile; how she brings out a side of him that nobody else has; her wonderful family. She's beaming. "So I'm standing here looking at someone who does bring out such a different side, to me, and…" He hangs his head. Pause. Then he snaps his head back up, seemingly having told himself to man up and blurt it out, and continues, "I hate to say this, but…I want something more, that I can't -- I can't find." Jenni's face falls. He didn't think he'd tell her goodbye, but here he is, it breaks his heart, blah blah. Jenni is crying now, and he goes on in that vein and then asks her please to look at him, which she does reluctantly, and which I don't like -- you just rejected her, dude. She doesn't want to make eye contact, for obvious reasons; respect that. He wants her to know how much he cares about her and how much this hurts him, and asks if she has anything to say. Jenni wiggles around, probably to prevent herself from just running away (which is what I would do, because Brad can do the postmortem his own damn self if this is how he feels, in my opinion); she has a lot to say but can't get the words out. Now she feels embarrassed for telling him how she felt. Brad tells her she shouldn't feel embarrassed for telling the truth about her feelings, which she shouldn't, but…easy for him to say. And…too soon. They hug. She sort of enjoys hugging him for the last time; he kind of hangs his arms on her back stiffly and, like, scratches her, it's weird. Sad guitar. Long pan of them hugging sadly.
He walks her out. Sad guitar. Close-up of the rose, as yet unclaimed. More hugs by the limo. Sad guitar. In the limo, Jenni weeps that this is why it's hard for her to tell people how she feels; she doesn't know what went wrong. Her dad told her that "there's one person in this life for you, and you'll find him" (aw…dads), but it's obviously not Brad. She tries to pull it together; she knows she's a good person and will make someone happy.
