The Bachelor 3 concluded last night with Andrew Firestone choosing, as the AP describes it, “perky blonde Jen over statuesque brunette Kirsten.” He proposed to her, saying, “Jen, I love you. I think that we fit perfectly together and I look forward to a life of adventure, happiness and family.” Kirsten took the news well, saying, “I have so many pieces to pick up right now. … Right now he’s proposing to Jen and it makes me want to throw up.” The show continues Wednesday with an “After The Final Rose” special.
+ earlier: Jen: “When my girlfriends got me involved in this, I had no idea it would go this far.”
