Bachelorette Becca finale recap: Meet Becca’s Fiancé

Bachelorette Becca Finale

I hear the Maldives is the perfect place to fall in love. It’s also the perfect place to participate in sunset yoga, bike in heels, and sweat, but that’s neither here nor there. Becca has finally landed herself a man and even though he’s not the one she imagined standing with at the end of this journey, he is ready to do the damn thing.

MEET THE FAM

Becca is in love with two people. It’s as simple as that and she needs her family to point her in the right direction. She can’t be compared to Arie, for heaven’s sake, so it’s time to figure out in the next three hours who will be the love of her life and who will be the poor schlep puttering off in a rejection dinghy.

Garrett is up first and he endears himself to Becca’s mom, her sister, and Uncle Chuck. He loves the great outdoors and makes sure to mention Becca’s deceased father on at least two occasions.

His time with Uncle Chuck is pretty amazing. At first, Chucky throws Garrett’s divorce in his face by asking him what he would have done differently if given the opportunity. Garrett wisely sings Becca’s praises instead of answering the question and then fights big, big tears when the word “cancer” is mentioned. Uncle Chuck weeps too and they hug it out in the biggest cry fest we’ve seen to date.

Uncle Chuck is done. He doesn’t even need to meet Blake. He’s Team Gare Bear all the way. Sister Emily feels the same. Becca needs emotion and Garrett has it!

Isn’t it ironic that Garrett is attached to all the emotion talk? Wait until these people meet Blake. Break out the dish towels. It’s about to get snotty up in here, because Blake is in the house!

Becca admits that she’s been in love with Blake “for a while” and appreciates that he is kind, honest, open, and vulnerable. He’s also not afraid to wear pink linen shorts to meet the fam. That means he’s confident and secure. The total package, right?

Blake tells Emily that he’s attracted to strong, independent women. Throw your hands up at me. She asks him about challenges and he claims there are none. Mom asks the same and Blake becomes concerned. Why is everyone bringing up road blocks? Could it be that Becca is right? Their love is too good to be true because it’s so perfect?

When Mom tells him, “You will be okay if this doesn’t work out,” Blake begins to spiral. As he should.

You see, Blake knew in this moment that something was off. And it wasn’t just the ominous rain. He claims that his ex-girlfriend acted the same way and she broke up with him forty-eight hours later.

FORESHADOWING!!!

Mom figures out that her daughter’s angst isn’t from a pending decision on who will be the Mr. Becca of the future. It’s the reality that she is going to have to blow someone’s heart into smithereens. Her mom tells her to suck it up and get over herself.

So sweet.

LAST DATES
Becca dons her third romper of the night and appropriately jumps and straddles into Garrett’s arms before they spend the day on a pirate ship. Garrett launches into a very deep conversation about goals, and family, and values and then shouts, “DOLPHINS!”

That’s the Maldives version of squirrel.

via GIPHY

They hop off the boat to go swimming near a floaty thing that represents the equator line. Garrett announces that he’s on top of the world.

Or the dead middle of the world. Same difference.

That night, he lays it on thick, making sure Becca knows that he’s ready to change diapers, carpool, listen to her accent, and live life outside of the bachelor bubble. He will be absolutely crushed if he isn’t chosen, but even if it isn’t him kneeling at the end, he wants her to be happy. Then he cries because instead of butterflies, Becca gives him eagles.

I know the feeling. Our Host Chris Harrison makes me react the same way.

The next day, Becca jumps and straddles Blake. Then she makes him, the guy who sweats the most, pedal around the Maldives on a bike. Once they finally hit the ocean, Blake reminds her that they are MFEO before asking how her family reacted to him. Another red flag waves in his face when Becca answers, “They just want me to be forthcoming that this is difficult.”

Ouch.

Who cares about feelings, though, because the sunset is wicked gorgeous and ABC needs some money shots for the media room. They make Becca and Blake kiss until the sun goes down and celebrate the gorgeous photos, kicking themselves that they didn’t ask Garrett to come on this particular date, because this picture screams HAPPILY EVER AFTER promo, for sure.

Bachelorette Becca Finale

That night, Blake suffers through the nervous sweats when presenting Becca with something he calls a time capsule, which is really a shadowbox, unless he plans on burying the darn thing. It was so, so special and Becca did a great job pretending to care about the scraps of paper and gum wrappers.

Blake pulls his forehead-to-forehead move and tells the camera that he’s got this in the bag because he heard Becca exhale. That has to be a sign, right?

UNCLE NEIL

Becca has a tough decision to make. She’s only going to say “I love you” to one person, so she better get it right.

Wait. There’s Arie.

Becca has a tough decision to make. She’s only going to say “I love you” to two people, so she better get this one right.

Wait. There’s Red Ross.

Becca has a tough decision to make. She’s only going to say “I love you” to one person in the Maldives, so she better get it right.

Meanwhile, Blake picks out a gorgeous ring and Garrett picks out a meh ring. Both pull the rings out and pop open the lid in a speed boat going 70 mph and I have a heart attack hoping that the bling does not fly out of their hands.

THE REJECTION

Blake is the first to step out of the boat and make his way down the mile-long dock where his non-finacé waits. He begins to monolog and I start to rock back and forth, irritated that the couch cushion is yards away from my perched position.

Becca’s face is stoic and she barely makes eye contact. Blake needs to READ THE ROOM. Or READ THE BEACH. Fortunately, she interrupts his love story, gives him a thousand compliments, then says she’s not ready to say goodbye…to Garrett.

PS: She pictured him as the winner the entire time.

Worst thing to say EVER.

She walks him out. I assume he is going to die of a heat stroke since Harrison promised us this would be the most heartbreaking rejection of all time. Keeling over from sweating to death in a poorly tailored suit would certainly fit that description.

Blake whines that he wasn’t the one and Becca assures him that it is all her fault. Blake’s pores weep from disappointment and the ABC Intern finally fetches the towel on Becca’s bed that was expertly folded into an impeccable swan to give to the poor miserable fella. Blake wanders off to hopefully hydrate. Becca begins to hyperventilate. She pulls a Half Crouching Tiger Hidden Mesnick because her dress is too tight to execute the move in its purest form.

Poor Blake sits there in a daze. He didn’t see this coming. Yet, he did sense it. He thought they had a strong connection and now he has to do life ALONE. He thought she loved him back!

Well she did, Blake. Ish.

Back in the studio audience, Blake is still stunned, although he has no hard feelings. Twenty minutes later, Harrison allows him to exit the stage. Although social media is all a buzz regarding his newly single status, I don’t think Blake will be asked to be the next bachelor.

Perhaps he can check out the new dating app called Vouch. I hear Sean Lowe is a fan…

Seriously. I might do this. Who’s with me?!

THE PROPOSAL
Garrett is rerouted from Blake’s exit, thanks to a trail of tears and sweat. He emerges from the jungle and tells Becca that she’s the one for him. She agrees and he proposes. Then she yells, “We’re engaged!” like she proclaimed the entire time they were in Thailand.

In studio, Garrett admits that he first fell for Becca when she paddle boarded with him down the river with the rest of Thailand. Something about teamwork. Becca admits that she first fell for Garrett when she figured out he reminded her of her dad.

She cheers and shouts a little too enthusiastically for my taste. I’m not sure if she is trying to make everyone know that she is happy and in this, or if she had a few shots of liquid courage backstage. Either way, Becca is a spaz and Garrett is reserved.

Speaking of reserved, Garrett takes a moment to do a little damage control by apologizing once again for the people he hurt when double tapping certain Instagram posts. The words “grow and learn” was used enough times for me to deduce that a PR professional drilled that phrase into both of their heads. Becca wants everyone to just move forward and continue to educate themselves while she leaves to go talk to Jimmy Kimmel.

But how will they get to Jimmy’s studio? By minivan, of course! Complete with car seats, orange slices, and wood panels.

That’s Becca and Garrett. Living their truths. Learning and growing. Sharing and caring. DOLPHINS!

UGH. Most of us picked Garrett as the winner last week. I guess we’ll see if they make the contractual 3 months after the show ends. When Becca said “we’re still getting to know each other”. DUH DUN DUNNNNNNNN.

Kevin was sorely disappointed and deeply embarrassed about all the sweating going on by Blake. Srsly dude, it’s like Roberto sweating through his wool suit in Bora Bora or wherever it was. It was before Kevin’s time, so he doesn’t know. I will have to say that at least we didn’t have to hear about Arie this week. Although that chach shows up in BIP at some point.

Kevin is excited to watch that tonight.

Lexi also thought it should have been Blake, but after he started his meltdown, she checked out and started snoring like a little dog should.

Well, good luck Becca and Garrett. Hope you actually make it to a wedding.

I knew it was Garrett from the morning after bedroom scene. No make-up remember?

Guess he won it all when he rolled up in the Mini Van

Kelli, how did you know it would be Garrett last week? I thought for sure she would pick Blake! Our “viewing party” was all yelling at the screen to go with the communicator! It’s hard to argue with “he reminds me of my dad,” though.

This was certainly not my only takeaway from last night, but it’s the one that has stuck with me — and not in a good way.

I believe it was in the Q&A that Becca confirmed she had made her final choice in Thailand, and yet continued to give Blake passionate, sustained kisses — and whatever else — up until almost their final moments together. I wonder how Garrett now feels watching his fiancée offer that sort of sexual intimacy to another man, well after she knew she would reject him. For that matter, I wonder how Blake now looks back on their last steamy interactions. She claims she loved him, but who continues to mislead a loved one in such a cruel way.

Contrarian
Contrarian

Okay, there was one other thing I forgot to mention. It was when…

Becca told him it was “not acceptable” (her words) for him to double-tap certain Instagram posts. Seriously? So because he enjoyed looking at some non-PC political memes on social media, he is forced into repeated public apologies and groveling self-flagellation. I found it cringe-worthy.

This is not a good start for him — or them. She needs someone who will stand up for himself.

LORRAINE

I agree! I bet they didn’t even discuss politics on the show! She probably found out he loves Trump when the first episode aired!

Contrarian

Haha…it’s kind of funny to imagine that “reveal.” I’m guessing his MAGA hat wasn’t part of their rôle-playing in the Fantasy Suite.

Anita

The part I hate the most? Garrett will not be forgiven. Ever. Even though the Powers that Be are doing their best to make America Forget, the people I know who watch the show are still vilifying him and calling him horrible names. I don’t know…they didn’t look to loveydovey last night…

Lori
Lori

No kidding!!! Stand up for yourself man. Maybe he doesn’t give in to every PC thing out there…but he sure caved in pretty darn quick to please her.

Or Gal

Also, if she knew in Thailand, why did she go on and on and on to her family how she was in love with two guys? This entire episode was producer driven, IMHO. I did like the format better than dates, rejection, proposal, THEN ATFR.

Scooby Snaxx
Scooby Snaxx

Why did she go on and on to her family? Because it’s a show, first and foremost, and the name of the game is to keep up the suspense until the last minute so that viewers keep watching. I will never, ever believe that anyone could be equally in love with two people at the same time such that he/she could see marrying either one of them on the day before a proposal is supposed to happen. No way. Becca may have been in love with Blake for a while, but I’m sure she saw Garrett as her husband way earlier than she let on in last night’s episode.

deelyla

The way I understood that was Becca realized in Thailand that she loved him, not that he was the one. I don’t think she answered when she knew who she was choosing.

Shelley

Sweet Blake. I’ve never understood why there aren’t more people like him who freak out over the potential stronger connections with their peers. Maybe others do, but that was the storyline applied to him. Why do yo think he won’t be Bachelor Lincee? I’ve always wanted him if he didn’t win, but would watch if it was Jason too.

You should definitely do Vouch girl!

One last thought. You can take the boy out of Manteca, but you can’t take Manteca out of the boy.

Courtney

As someone who is also from the Central Valley, your last statement could not be more true…

Poor Blake, Becca should have cut him loose before his proposal speech. But sadly she stayed true to what the producers wanted and Blake took the fall big time.

tracee

Totally agree. Poor Blake…I had to FF. I’m surprised Becca made him go though all that. He could barely handle it when she went on a One on One with another guy. My heart broke for him.

Sarah
Sarah

I thought the same thing! If she really cared about him as much as she said she did, wouldn’t she have spared him the pain and humiliation of going through that whole speech? Seems so cruel…

LORRAINE

I felt like the whole exchange with Blake was heartbreaking. I was in tears my self on the couch. I mean when he turned to the camera and said into the tear stained towel- I loved her! I cried even harder. Just seemed cruel. I figured Becca didn’t pick Garrett, and he would ride off into the sunset. She is liberal and he is certainly not, plus he was married for 2 months. I give it 6 weeks in the real world, and predict Becca will be on the next Bachelor in Paradise franchise. I was team Colton all the way! I hope they get a brand new Bachelor, someone older and wiser! Forget about all these 20 somethings!

Janet

Arie was “older & wiser.” He didn’t do such a good job!

Agreed! I read the spoilers so I knew it was coming, but OMG, I was a mess watching this. That poor guy. It was so hard to watch! I don’t see this one lasting… not particularly sad about it.

“Blake’s pores weep from disappointment” :):):)
I feel kind of bad for these love birds for having their engagement overshadowed by some meme controversy. The latest bach couples have all had a dark shadow put on them at a time that’s supposed to be really happy… Rachel was happy with Bryan and all people talked about was Peter. Arie is happy with Lauren and he was the butt of every other burn in this season (yes, he didn’t handle the Becca situation well, but everyone is fine now!). And now half of the Internet is demonizing Garrett for some dumb memes that he apologized 100 times for.
I hope that people lay off and let these two enjoy their engagement. Garret seems like a genuinely nice guy, and I think he and Becca are cute together.

UGH
UGH

Did you see the memes and things he liked? It was horrific. I know he apologized, but it was awful, and I sincerely hope he learns from this. It is not just some dumb situation… It’s a human decency situation.

Rebekah
Rebekah

Horrific?!? Really?!? I must have a different definition of that word than you. Tasteless and insensitive, yes, but horrific? Let’s save that word for things like head on collisions and mass shootings.

Michelle

Agreed, Rebekah. This whole thing was SO overblown.

UGH
UGH

Liking something that’s says that school shootings were not real and were done by crisis actors IS horrific. In what universe is that ok? In what universe is that funny? It’s vile and disgusting and yes, horrific. I’m horrified that people have thoughts like this. I’m horrified that school shooting victims, their families, and survivors would have to endure people actually believing this. How Blake can even stand to be in the same room as Garrett as a school shooting survivor himself, is beyond me. I can’t reconcile with this. I just can’t.

Again, I hope he learns from this because it is NOT okay. What 29 year old doesn’t understand that social media is a direct reflection of you as a person? I truly hope Becca helps him gain an understanding of why this is so very wrong, and that he becomes a better person out of this.

The universe needs more Blakes and Jasons.

Randee
Randee

Totally agree

DonnaMarie
DonnaMarie

UGH, I agree with you 100%!!!

EBro
EBro

The guy is already 29. My guess is that someone whose initial reaction is that making fun of a person who has survived a mass shooting is a good thing to do, is not someone who thinks things through. I doubt he’ll change much, and chances are good he’ll do lots of boneheaded things that push her to dump him.

Karen
Karen

Exactly.

Rrbgandse
Rrbgandse

His apology was awful. I’m sorry IF I hurt someone. That is the cowards apology. He knew he had hurt people. That’s why this was an issue. It’s “I’m sorry to those I have hurt and offended” I still would not like him bit at least it’s a little more sincere. And in most cases people’s first answer is their true feelings. Back pedaling and saying they are learning is bs. He should know by now. IMHO

Allia
Allia

Wow guys! It’s like you WANT him to be a horrible person! Seriously…
He could have gotten defensive or not said anything at all, but he owned up and apologized. I think that speaks way more to his character than a few mouse clicks once upon a time. And that’s literally what it was- a few thoughtless mouse clicks on some Internet garbage, which most people have been guilty of at some point. I think he’s done more than enough by expressing regret and an open attitude. It’s sad that people who have never met the guy continue to insist that they know what his true feelings are and that he’s some horrific person.

UGH
UGH

To be clear, I didn’t say HE was a horrific person. I said the things that he LIKED were horrific on so many human decency levels. School shooting victims as crisis actors? Mocking transgender youths and adults? Throwing immmigrant children over walls? Implying that feminists are overweight unattractive women? What if those were his kids going through these things? His family members? His friends? His fiancée?

I also said I truly hope he learns from this. Am I certain he will? No, because I too have problems with the apology statement, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt that, with the help of Becca, who I LOVE, we will see a better side to him. I want her to be happy, and if it’s with him, and they grow together from this experience, then that’s awesome….

Julie
Julie

Agree “UGH”, he made some very, very bad decisions which I fear truly reflect the way he feels on those subjects. I think Becca is light years more enlightened than that, which is why I can’t see them working out.

Rosa
Rosa

I agree Allia! It’s like all these people who CANNOT forgive him have never made a single mistake in their life. He has more than apologized and I hope he and Becca can move forward and make it!

kathleen

I’m not sure. I’m pretty sure once a racist, always a racist. It’s in the genes and the way you are raised. Changing one’s values is the most difficult thing to change about a person. I really can’t see Becca staying with that chach.

E.D.

Racism is “in the genes”? Are you even serious with this comment?

Molly

Seriously.. You all need to let the hate go. I don’t understand how you can spend so much time and effort hating some guy you’ve never met or talked to. You are so blinded by a small, inconsequential snapshot, or screenshots lol, that you refuse to see ANY good in a person. Your life must be horrific. I hope you can find some happiness and let this hatred go.

BeccaCali
BeccaCali

Saying that you question a person’s character because of their actions on social media is not “hate”. Hate is spewing “kill him”. Everyone has been civilised and not name calling. Telling someone that “your life must be horrific” is disturbing and rude. I hope Lincee blocks you because I read this site for the reason that people are kind and diplomatic and not name calling.

“Ugh”…horrific?? Good gracious, you are dramatic. I looked at each meme and WOW is his crucifixion in the public eye overblown. As is your statement that he liked something saying that school shootings weren’t real. That’s NOT what the meme said…it was challenging the involvement of David Hogg, who apparently was on TV as a student from a cross-country state the year before. I don’t think that, and I frankly don’t care, but my point is THAT’S what the meme was saying, not that school shootings aren’t real. People need to learn to pull the stick out of their butts. Calm down–you might be a little happier in general if you did.

Patrick

You guys are asking a person(s) to be reasonable who more than likely routinely calls people who do not agree with their economic standpoints as Nazis. There is no reasoning with collectivism and cultural Marxism.

I really like Becca, but she led Blake on the same way Arie led his 2 finalists on in every way except saying ILY.

And I wish the producers would come up with a different script. With the exception of a few, it’s always the same. ‘I’m in love with both of them. I’m so torn. How will I ever decide.’ Until the next morning when they’ve suddenly had an epiphany. And then they say after it’s over they knew he/she was the one the minute they stepped out of the limo.

So predictable. But of course I still watch it.

And poor Blake. I feel his sweaty pain. It was dripping off his nose, his chin, down onto his white shirt. I am the same way. Bless him. Should have given him a chilled towel way earlier.

Team Jason all the way!

Anita
Anita

I don’t know y’all…this season, this whole season, has left a bad taste in my mouth and a rock in the pit of my stomach. I can’t help but feel awful for Blake. That man was for-real-for-real in love with her. I haven’t seen that since Ryan & Trista. HE looked at HER like that. This is the nightmare I envisioned from way back then.

I remembered thinking if she doesn’t pick Ryan it will be a mistake. But she picked the one who loved her, not the sophisticated player so we were all joyful. This time? She picked the wrong dude. I’m sorry friends, but in my own opinion, after watching this season (and still knowing/believing she was picking Garrett from night one), I think she picked the wrong dude.

I really don’t like the way Blake was treated here…He got the crazy stalker edit so that Garrett could get the good guy aw shucks edit, but when you see them together in the Maldives? And just pay attention to HIM and not THEM? That man’s in LOVE. I do not enjoy watching REAL Heartbreak and that. was. real. I’m probably not expressing this right but this season just didn’t sit right with me. It was kinda icky and I don’t know why.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

I totally agree, left with icky taste in mouth and she picked the wrong guy.

Jennie C
Jennie C

I feel like it was icky because she picked Blake as her final guy early on, even according to her own words, then proceeded to develop a relationship with Garrett that ultimately won her over. It feels disloyal, even though we’re seeing it in a totally fabricated reality tv show. I enjoyed watching the love story between her and Blake until I saw him be the first of the final two guys to approach OHCH, then I just wanted to stop watching.

Amy H

I have to say I agree with you Anita. I thought it was uncanny how tuned in Blake was with Becca. He felt when things were “off,” he knew when she was struggling, he knew when she was happy and feeling it. He was just very attuned to what was going on with her and he adjusted himself accordingly. Any woman would be lucky to have a man love her and understand her in that way. I don’t want to say anything negative about Garrett, but I really felt like Blake was connected with Becca in a way that Garrett wasn’t. I guess maybe the opposite wasn’t true which is why Blake was sent packing. Too bad. Oh, and Lincee…best line ever! “Becca begins to hyperventilate. She pulls a Half Crouching Tiger Hidden Mesnick because her dress is too tight to execute the move in its purest form.” Gold.

CAROLE
CAROLE

OMG poor poor super soaked sweaty Blake! That is not fair to do to anyone. Why do they make them wear a suit and walk a bajillion miles from the boat to “spot”. That is just cruel. Bad enough the guy is gonna get his heart stomped on, but now America gets to watch him sweat to death! Geez ABC, have a heart. And weirdly Becca was not sweating even after looking into the sun and standing there all day? Just kidding, I’m sure hair and make up were right off to the side.

“Half Crouching Tiger Hidden Mesnick” was the funniest line in the recap!

I never cared for Blake – I felt he was too rehearsed (not sure what other word to use) and seemed somewhat emotionally fragile for a show like the Bachelorette.

Susan
Susan

I belly laughed out loud at Hidden Mesnick. Too funny Lincee!
“Dolphin/squirrel” was right on the money too.
I agree about Blake being rehearsed or something. It was like he was playing a character with his facial expressions. Kind of reminded me of James Franco when he plays a dorky guy. I did feel bad for him though when he was dumped. That seemed real. And he looked really uncomfortable on ATFR.

JimJ

Another great recap season, Lincee! I am jealous of your proof positive meeting OHCH, in person.

I thought Beccah was giddy at ATFR and I’m happy for her. I hope she chose wisely.

Sherrie

I’ve had concerns about Garrett’s intellect the last few episodes. He seemed simple, but sweet. They were confirmed when Becca’s family kept asking her whether she felt he would “challenge” her. On the other hand, there was no denying he brought out her giddy side. I think she chose with her heart – I’m hoping it lasts.

rachel
rachel

Great season of recaps, Lincee!

I don’t think watching her with other guys would be as hard as watching Garrett actually get married and look as sure and happy then as he is now. In the video (the link was posted in a previous comment thread), he’s crying tears of joy and amazement, and claiming to be the luckiest guy in the world, only to end it all 2 months later…because she couldn’t get along with his family? That’s trying your hardest to make it work? It takes longer than that to get an appointment with a marriage counselor and attend a handful of sessions. That would shake my faith in him, to say nothing of the things he liked on social media (which ARE a big deal because they say a lot about his beliefs.)

This episode made it clear that you really don’t want to know “Why?” First of all, it doesn’t matter…and the answer will haunt you worse than your imagination can because at least you don’t know for sure. Here, Blake knows that she thinks he wouldn’t be her rock; that he’d get too emotional and would fall apart if something happened to one of their kids. I also think she decided after meeting his family that they were not a good fit. Blake’s family has a lot of problems (that whole affair thing). Garrett’s family was more “normal”. I do wish them happiness, but there are so many problems already. Becca was pouring it on almost as thick as Tom Cruise. She was this close to jumping on the couch. And we all saw how that ended.

The dolphins/squirrel part was the best! Thanks for all the laughs!

KarenS

Visions of Tom Cruise jumping on Ellen’s couch and people thinking he’d gone crazy are going through my head now, hahhaha!!! Thanks for the reminder!!!!

BeccaCali

Omg exactly! She was manic. I did like Garrett a lot more after the last 2 episodes, however, and Blake took himself too seriously. Blake reminded me of Lauren, and Garrett reminded me of Becca actually. The difference is that Becca is more physically attracted to Garrett (and Arie was more physically attracted to Lauren). I hope they are happy together, and bring on BIP!
