The Bachelor spoilers give viewers exactly what they don't want to wait patiently for -- the results of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s search for love on Season 22 of the ABC reality dating competition.
Spoilers for The Bachelor finale are finally out, so which bachelorette -- if any -- did Arie pick in the end? Did the professional racer turned real estate agent from Arizona find true love and get engaged?
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you want Arie's decisions at conclusion of Season 22 to be a surprise].
The girl of his dreams? According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Arie selected Rebecca "Becca" Kufrin, a 27-year-old senior account executive from Minneapolis, MN, at the final Rose Ceremony.
Becca, who works for Skyaa, a technology PR firm, allegedly received the first one-on-one date of the season and ultimately accepted Arie's proposal!
Arie's journey on reality TV, which premieres Monday, January 1, 2018 at 8PM ET/PT, therefore ended happily and without heartbreak. (This is big news since he finished as Emily's runner-up on The Bachelorette and seemed completely devastated).
"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 claimedThe 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? My guess is no because Arie is really no different than previous leads, but much more like [Nick Viall] in that he was never doing this show to find a wife. He's here to build his brand back up."
Becca 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.
Arie's The Bachelor season began filming on September 20 in Los Angeles, CA, and wrapped production earlier this month in the romantic destination of Peru. So which bachelorettes reportedly finished in second, third and fourth place?

According to Carbone, the other three bachelorettes in Arie's Final 4 were Tia Booth, a 26-year-old physical therapist from Little Rock, AR; Lauren Burnham, a 25-year-old saleswoman from Dallas, TX; and Kendall Long, a 26-year-old set dresser from Los Angeles, CA.
Tia's hometown date in Arkansas was reportedly filmed on October 26, and Lauren's hometown date was filmed 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.
Tia graduated from Arkansas St. University and is very good friends with former Bachelor Nick's runner-up Raven Gates, who is now dating Adam Gottschalk whom she met on Bachelor in Paradise 4.
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.
And Kendall graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2014 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and she also ran track.
Kendall has a YouTube channel where she plays the ukulele and sings, and she also has an IMDB page.
After the four bachelorettes' hometown dates, Arie eliminated Tia, Carbone reported.
At the Final 3 Rose Ceremony, following Arie's round of overnight Fantasy Suite dates in Cusco, Peru, Arie then allegedly sent Kendall home.
