Baldwin's proposal to Horst and her acceptance of it marked the first time in four seasons and only the second in its last seven editions thatThe Bachelor ended with its bachelor proposing to his final bachelorette.
To ensure their reality television romance was the real thing, Baldwin reportedly proposed to Horst once again on July 7 at his Honolulu home after they both swam in a 1.2 mile race off Oahu's North Shore.

Brad Womack, a 34-year-old Austin, TX bar owner, will try to pick-up where Baldwin left-off as the star of The Bachelor's upcoming eleventh installment, which is scheduled to premiere Monday, September 24 at 9:30PM ET/PT on ABC.
