Bob chooses Estella, doesn’t propose.

Bob chooses Estella, doesn’t propose.
After being rejected by Bob Guiney on the finale of The Bachelor 4, Kelly Jo Kuharski made faces that suggested she was ready to grab Bob by the sideburns and push him off the cliff they were standing on. He asked her, “Are you all right?” She said, “No, not at all. This sucks.” Estella Gardinier, who says Bob is her soulmate, was offered a ring by Bob, but not a proposal. He placed the ring on her right hand as a “promise ring” and muttered something about wanting to “make sure of everything” first–as if six weeks on a reality TV show wasn’t enough time to fall in love with a person and commit to spending the rest of the rest of your life with someone you’ve known only through contrived dates filmed by crews of sweaty people lugging equipment all over southern California. Offering her the ring, Bob said, “I hope it’s enough, I do,” and Estella replied that it was “more than enough.” Tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, ABC airs an “After the Final Rose” special; maybe we’ll find out if that promise has become an engagement. Or maybe not.
