New 'Bachelor' Andy Baldwin reveals he proposes to his final woman


By Christopher Rocchio and Steve Rogers, 03/30/2007 

For the first time in four seasons and only the second in its last seven editions, ABC's long-running The Bachelor will end with its bachelor proposing to his final bachelorette.

After previously playing coy about whether he'd proposed at the "Final Rose Ceremony" finale of ABC's upcoming The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman during pre-show interviews, tenth season The Bachelor star U.S. Navy Lieutenant Andy Baldwin revealed that he pops the question to his selected suitor during a guest appearance on Friday's The View broadcast.

The View co-host Barbara Walters asked Baldwin, a 30-year-old undersea medical officer stationed in Pearl Harbor, HI and accomplished triathlete, if he had asked the woman he selected to marry him, or if he's engaged.  The View co-host Rosie O'Donnell then commented, "You're not allowed to say because that's part of the show, right?"  Apparently no. 

"I will tell you yes," Baldwin confirmed to the girls on The View

Baldwin's sister was in The View's studio audience, and she was asked if the family approves of his choice.  "Oh for sure," replied the sister.  "Absolutely... absolutely.

Baldwin's proposal (The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman finished filming earlier this month) will buck a recent The Bachelor trend.  Five of the show's six most recent bachelors --  Prince Lorenzo Borghese (The Bachelor: Rome), Travis Stork (The Bachelor: Paris), Charlie O'Connell (The Bachelor 7), Jesse Palmer (The Bachelor 5), and Bob Guiney (The Bachelor 4) -- failed to propose marriage to their final selected bachelorette. 

Although two of The Bachelor's first three editions ended with proposals, sixth season The Bachelor star Byron Velvick is the only bachelor to have proposed to his "Final Rose" recipient during the show's last six seasons (and according to The Bachelor producer Mike Fleiss, Velvick and Mary Delgado, the bachelorette he selected, will marry next month -- a move that will make Velvick the first Bachelor star to actually walk down the aisle with the woman he picked on the show).

"I'm so glad I did it because I am so in love.  It worked.  I'm smitten...I can't get her out of my mind," Baldwin, who, as he had in earlier interviews, once again attributed his success in finding love to ABC announcing he was the star of The Bachelor before casting started, told The View women.  "I met the love of my life and I'm so happy."

The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman will premiere on Monday, April 2 at 9:45PM ET/PT on ABC.
