It was a dramatic climax for the season finale of ABC's 'The Golden Bachelor' as Gerry Turner, the heartthrob of the season, made his final choice between Leslie Fhima and Theresa Nist. The finale was not only filled with anticipation but also had its fair share of dramatic moments and surprises.
Leslie Fhima, one of the final contestants, experienced a heart-wrenching moment as Gerry Turner, in a surprising twist, did not choose her as his partner. She had called Gerry a liar for leading her to believe she would be the final choice, especially after their overnight date. This dramatic confrontation added an unexpected layer of controversy to the otherwise romantic finale.
Gerry's Final Choice
Despite this dramatic fallout, Gerry ultimately proposed to Theresa Nist, a financial services professional. Gerry emphasized his love for Theresa and stated he couldn't live without her. The 72-year-old bachelor proved that it's never too late to find love, and his proposal was met with an affirmative response from Theresa. Their love story became the highlight of the season, demonstrating that love can blossom even in the most unusual situations.
Since the finale, Gerry and Theresa's relationship has only grown stronger. They have been open about their plans to tie the knot as soon as possible, not wanting to wait due to their age. In a surprising announcement, the couple revealed their plans to not only marry soon but also televise their wedding preparations and ceremony in a new special titled 'The Golden Wedding.' This special, scheduled to broadcast on January 4 on ABC, is anticipated to capture their journey from engagement to marriage, including the planning process and the actual wedding ceremony.
Despite the controversies and heartbreak, 'The Golden Bachelor' has left its viewers with a touching love story, a testament to the fact that love knows no age or boundaries. The anticipation for 'The Golden Wedding' is already building, promising a fresh start to the New Year for both the couple and their fans.
