The Bachelor fans are chomping at the bit to learn how Nick Viall's season ended. So which bachelorette -- if any -- did he pick in the end? Did Viall find mutual love this time around and get engaged?
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you want Viall's decisions at the end of Season 21 to be a surprise].
After three failed attempts at finding love on The Bachelorette's tenth and eleventh seasons as well as the third edition of Bachelor in Paradise, Viall is allegedly engaged!
The girl of his dreams? According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Viall selected Vanessa Grimaldi, a 29-year-old special education teacher from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, at the final Rose Ceremony.
Grimaldi thankfully chose him right back, and then Viall allegedly proposed marriage, which she accepted! (This is big news since Viall had been dumped by both Bachelorettes Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe on national television).
"This isn't a guess. This isn't speculation," Carbone insists. "This is what happens... To be honest, this was the easiest season in recent memory to spoil, and I pretty much knew it would be going in. Too solid of sources this season to ever be worried about being wrong."
Grimaldi has apparently also dabbled in acting and hosting. She appeared on YouTube GameLoft podcasts five years ago.
Viall's The Bachelor season reportedly began filming September 24 in Los Angeles and concluded in a little under two months, wrapping up November 18 in the romantic destination of Finland.

According to Carbone, the other three bachelorettes in Viall's Final 4 were Corinne Olympios, a 24-year-old business owner from Miami, FL; Rachel Lindsay, a 31-year-old attorney from Dallas, TX; and Raven Gates, a 25-year-old fashion boutique owner from Hoxie, AR.
The ladies' hometown dates were reportedly filmed in that exact order, with Viall visiting Grimaldi's hometown in Montreal last.
Olympios is an aspiring model who is currently listed on a Model Mayhem page. Lindsay graduated with a bachelors degree in Kinesiology and Sports Management from University of Texas at Austin in 2007, got her law degree from Marquette University Law School in 2011, and currently works as a lawyer at Cooper and Scully in Dallas.
After the four bachelorettes' hometown dates, Viall eliminated Olympios in New York at the William Vale hotel, Carbone reports, adding that she will be the season's villain and most talked about girl by far.
At the Final 3 Rose Ceremony, Viall sent Gates home in Finland, therefore determining his Final 2. And as previously revealed, Viall chose Grimaldi in the end, devastating Season 21's runner-up, Gates.
