By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/24/2018
The Bachelor spoilers will satisfy viewers looking for answers on how Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season ends. Which bachelorette did Arie pick in his 2018 season's final Rose Ceremony, did he propose marriage, and is the couple still together?!
While the week in Ica, Peru will be filled with romance and deep conversation, a party crash will try to break up one of Arie's relationships.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want to find out how this season ends before the finale airs on ABC].
Arie fell in love with two women during his time on The Bachelor. As previews show for the upcoming broadcast, Arie, in fact, tells Becca and Lauren that he is "in love" with them. As far Kendall, he was just apparently "falling in love" with her.
Arie will wear his heart on his sleeve, and according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, his Final 2 will come down to Becca and Lauren after he sends Kendall packing after their night in the Fantasy Suite.
At the final Rose Ceremony filmed in Cusco, Peru, Arie will allegedly propose marriage to Becca!
Not only will Becca accept Arie's final rose, but she will also let him put a Neil Lane diamond engagement ring on her finger.
Because Arie and Becca got engaged, Lauren will leave the show absolutely devastated in second place, Carbone says.
Previews for The Women Tell All special have shown former Season 22 bachelorette, Caroline Lunny, telling Arie, "I know what you did," adding that she didn't know how he could do something like that.

So what was Caroline referring to?!
According to Carbone, Arie decided to dump Becca after two months of dating and being engaged, and then he begged Lauren to give him a second chance.
Lauren did allegedly take Arie back and now the pair are together and dating.
Both events -- Arie's breakup with Becca, and his reconciliation with his runner-up -- were caught on camera.
So fans will ironically watch Arie propose to Becca on the March 5 finale, but then during the live After the Final Rose special, Arie will have Lauren at his side.
Arie began having doubts about Becca shortly after popping the question when the finale taped in mid-November.
Carbone claims Arie called Lauren on the phone on January 1, which was the night of The Bachelor premiere.
A source later confirmed to Carbone on January 16 that Arie had broken up with Becca and was headed to Virginia to film, where Lauren's mother currently resides. Only a couple of hours later, neighbors spotted ABC vans parked outside of the mother's Virginia Beach home.
"This is what happened. It's not wrong... If you honestly think I'm reporting this based off a hunch, or some wishful thinking, or something to stir the pot, then you don't know how I function," Carbone wrote in his blog of the season's shocking conclusion.
"The guy who whined to us about not being in love for five years since [Emily Maynard]. The guy who's now a matured man and is 'not looking for someone to date, is looking for my wife,' couldn't give it more than TWO MONTHS with [Becca]."
Arie's ultimate decision was even more of a shock because in The Bachelor's next episode, Becca's ex-boyfriend is going to show up in Peru and attempt to win her back.
Carbone says Becca's ex of seven years is Ross Jirgl, who currently works as a sports performance coach for the Stanford University football team.
Ross will allegedly beg Becca to give him a second chance and he will propose marriage!
Becca allegedly rejects Ross' proposal and opts to stay on The Bachelor path with Arie. She risks it all for what she believed was true love, and now Becca is probably alone and single -- having lost a potential relationship with two men.
Also in the next February 26 broadcast of The Bachelor, Arie will enjoy the overnight Fantasy Suite dates with his Final 3 ladies.
"More torn than ever, Arie acknowledges that he has fallen in love with two incredible women and has professed his love to both," ABC reveals. "However, a blockbuster surprise threatens to derail Arie's fairy tale ending."
Arie will begin the week with a dune-buggy ride with Kendall, which will lead to a serious conversation at dinner in which Kendall becomes more vulnerable than ever.
According to the network, Kendall will explain how she's always been the "novelty girl" for guys, or the "quirky" one, and she wants to be taken seriously as a girlfriend.
Arie, however, views their relationship as special, and Kendall will allegedly confess her real feelings to Arie.
On Arie and Lauren's date, Lauren will once again have trouble letting her walls down and living in the moment out of fear she may get hurt in the end. While struggling to enjoy a plane tour of the Nazca Lines, Lauren will desperately look for reassurance from Arie.
Lauren will go on to drop a bombshell, and later that night, Arie will convince Lauren of his true feelings with "an extremely emotional declaration," ABC says.
Arie will then embark on his date with Becca, and the couple will explore the rich marine life around the Ballestas Islands, just off the southern coast of Peru. The couple will seem so happy together, and Becca will disclose she's in love with The Bachelor star while cuddling in a tent under the stars.
Arie will allegedly feel compelled to explain his feelings to Becca in return.
The next day, The Bachelor will feature "one of the most dramatic twists in history," says the network, when "a mystery visitor arrives ready to upset Arie's dreams of a happily ever after."
This man is Ross, and ABC says "a series of intense confrontations will follow."
