'The Bachelor' spoilers: Is Arie Luyendyk Jr. with Lauren Burnham or Becca Kufrin? Arie's winner pick and engagement spoiled by Hulu!

The Bachelor spoilers have been leaked in part by Hulu, as the ABC-affiliated streaming service prematurely released a five-minute The Bachelor finale clip that shows Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s marriage proposal to one of his Final 2 bachelorettes.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want to know how Arie's love story ends with either Lauren Burnham or Becca Kufrin].
On Saturday, Hulu -- which is co-owned by ABC's corporate parent and offers ABC's programming for streaming -- briefly released a short tourism video for Peru that shows Arie proposing to Becca, a 27-year-old publicist from Minneapolis, MN.
"In case there were STILL doubters as to what happened in Peru, thanks to Hulu for spoiling it this morning," tweeted Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, who had reported this would be the ending of The Bachelor's 22nd season a couple of months ago.
Hulu removed the "extras" video quickly, but it was online long enough to be recorded and captured by viewers who then posted the proposal footage on Twitter. In the footage, Arie is shown getting down on one knee in the middle of a courtyard in Cusco, Peru, surrounded by plants and flowers.
"I love you so much," Arie told Becca in his signature royal blue suit.
"I love you," replied Becca, who chose to wear a black lace gown with an illusion neckline and open back.
Arie then opened the Neil Lane ring box and asked, "Becca, will you marry me?"
"Of course!" the bachelorette gushed, as she placed her hands over her face in shock. "Oh my God!"
While Arie was putting the engagement ring on her finger, Becca said, "Oh my God, it's so pretty!"
The video wrapped with the happy couple embracing and kissing.
However, given its focus on promoting Peru tourism, the Hulu clip did not show any of the events that unfolded after Arie and Becca left the country following their engagement during The Bachelor's final Rose Ceremony in November 2017.
It's been widely reported Arie broke up with Becca weeks after popping the question and then begged his runner-up, Lauren, a 25-year-old sales representative from Virginia who currently resides in Dallas, TX, to take him back.
Arie and Lauren are now allegedly together and dating, and Carbone believes that Arie proposed marriage to her in late February at the Monarch Bay Resort in Dana Point.
Monarch Bay is the same California resort where Bachelor in Paradise couple Tanner Tolbert and Jade Roper got married in 2016.
Carbone says Lauren will be moving to Scottsdale, AZ, in the near future to be with Arie.
Arie's breakup with Becca and reconciliation with Lauren were both filmed by ABC cameras, so The Bachelor's finale will be a dramatic and shocking two night event on March 5 from 8-11PM ET/PT and March 6 from 8-10PM ET/PT.
