Bachelor 8 concludes tonight and a producer promises “a roller-coaster with several surprises”

Oh Bachelor 8, how we have just begun to know you, and now you are concluding at 9 p.m. ET with a two-hour finale.

Just yesterday, it seems, we were meeting the scuzzy-looking ER doctor who would lead this season, although eh both cut his hair and shaved before heading to Paris to pick through a group of women, including a psycho whose “eggs are rotting”. Now, though, the journey has come to an end, and just Moana and Sarah remain. Who will it be? And will we be unsurprised because the two have been spotted together already?

Regarding tonight’s finale, executive producer Lisa Levenson tells The Tennessean we should expect “a roller-coaster with several surprises.” In other words, be prepared to slip into a mild coma. But she does promise we won’t be “gypped” like viewers felt “after Jen because they invested so much of their time. Travis is someone who wouldn’t let anyone down.”
