The Bachelor spoilers reveal Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s Final 4 bachelorettes as well as the woman he allegedly chose at the end of his search for love.
Spoilers for The Bachelor's 22nd season have leaked out, so which ladies received hometown dates, and who made it all the way to the end?
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you want to be surprised by Arie's decisions at the conclusion of his The Bachelor edition].
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Arie's Final 4 bachelorettes were Tia Booth, a 26-year-old physical therapist from Little Rock, AR; Lauren Burnham, a 25-year-old saleswoman from Dallas, TX; Kendall Long, a 26-year-old set dresser from Los Angeles, CA; and Rebecca "Becca" Kufrin, a 27-year-old senior account executive from Minneapolis, MN.
Tia's hometown date in Arkansas was reportedly filmed on October 26, and Lauren's hometown date was taped on October 28 in Virginia Beach.
Becca's hometown date was taped on October 30 in Minnesota, and then Kendall brought Arie home to Los Angeles on November 1, according to Carbone.
After Arie met the women's families, the pro racing driver turned real estate agent eliminated Tia, Carbone reported.
At the Final 3 Rose Ceremony, following Arie's round of romantic overnight Fantasy Suite dates in Ica, Peru, Arie then allegedly sent Kendall home.
Kendall graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2014 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and she also ran track. She has a YouTube channel where she plays the ukulele and sings, and she also has an IMDB page.
Kendall surprisingly never received a one-on-one date all season but made it this far.
At the Final Rose Ceremony filmed in Cusco, Peru, Arie rejected Lauren in second place.
Lauren works for Vonage in sales and graduated from Old Dominion University in 2015 with a B.S. in Psychology after also taking courses at Central Washington from 2010 to 2011.
Now that just leaves Rebecca! Arie selected Rebecca at the end of his journey to find a fiancee, and he proposed marriage, according to Carbone.
Arie and Rebecca therefore got engaged at the Final Rose Ceremony, meaning the kissing bandit finally found "the one" after getting his heart broken by The Bachelorette's eighth-season star, Emily Maynard, in 2012.
"As I say every season, you can choose to believe that information or not. After being wrong for 3 weeks last season with Rachel choosing Peter, you certainly have a right to," Carbone wrote, referencing how he originally claimed The Bachelorette's Season 13 star Rachel Lindsay got engaged to Peter Kraus, who actually finished as the runner-up behind her current fiance Bryan Abasolo.
"I'm just telling you you're going to hear me reference Becca all season as the winner, and yes, they are engaged. Will it last? Who knows?"
Rebecca graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2012 with a B.S. in Mass Communications. Her mother is in remission from breast cancer, but her father sadly passed away about eight years ago.
Rebecca, who works for Skyaa, a technology PR firm, ironically received the first one-on-one date of the season and turned out to be the last woman standing.
The Bachelor's 22nd season is set to premiere Monday, January 1, 2018 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC. He will be introduced to 29 beautiful and accomplished bachelorettes.
