The Bachelorette 2 concludes tonight.
ABC’s The Bachelorette 2 concludes tonight with a two-hour finale starting at 9 p.m. ET. Meredith Phillips has a tough, tough choice: Matt or Ian, Ian or Matt; Matt or Ian, Ian or Matt. Though Meredith is looking forward to actually seeing the guy again–those bastards at ABC kept them apart for the past few months–she tells Zap2it.com that she’s not quite ready for a wedding yet, “but I know now that I am in love and happy that I finally found my companion. I’ve been searching my whole life for this person, and the fact that I found him on national television–I think that’s pretty great. Pretty unconventional, but pretty great.” Considering the relationship successes of her reality TV predecessors–well, good luck, Meredith.
+ also: Meredith forgives Ian’s brother for his rudeness.
