Evan chooses Zora, who says yes; show gives the couple $1 million.
On the long and drawn out finale of Joe Millionaire, Evan Marriott selected nice girl Zora Andrich, who decided to stay with him and pursue a relationship despite his lies.

Next week on yet another recap show (the first hour of last night’s finale turned out to be more recapping and follow-ups with the booted women), we’ll find out what happened to Evan and Zora as they are reunited for the first time since the show concluded.
+ also: Evan hangs out with celebs now.
