Celine chose Tommy over her runner-up, Steve Trezza, a 31-year-old digital marketing manager from Atlantic Highlands, NJ, who also put his heart on the line for love.
The broadcast of ABC's new reality dating series from The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss featured 10 men -- selected by a panel of matchmakers -- attempting to win the heart of a woman whose identity was initially concealed from them by participating in four pageant-style rounds of competition.
Celine is a 31-year-old attending physician in emergency medicine, a ringside physician during professional boxing matches, and a classically-trained violinist from New York City, NY. The only thing missing from her life is love, and she has been heartbroken before.
Celine had been in a relationship, and one day, her ex just decided he couldn't go through with it.
After America was introduced to Celine, a self-described risk taker, the men were brought out onstage one by one.
Steve was welcomed onstage first, and then he was followed by Tommy; Nicholas Minor, a 27-year-old in business development from Dallas, TX; Billy Peck, a 25-year-old concierge from New York, NY; and Wendell Cole, a 24-year-old medical student from Atlanta, GA.
Next up was Wai Eddy Goh, a 26-year-old acrobat from Las Vegas, NV; Jay Garner, a 34-year-old server from East Orange, NJ; Michael Chadwick, a 34-year-old real estate agent from New York, NY; Edward Blair IV, a 24-year-old law student from Union City, GA; and finally Na'eem Walton, a 26-year-old personal trainer from Blackwood, NJ.
Celine sized up the competition and quickly determined she'd like to see more of the following men: Na'eem, Steve, Wendell, Billy, Tommy, Wai, and Edward.
It then became time for the best of beachwear or swimwear round. All of the men felt comfortable enough to go shirtless.

A few highlights from this round were Steve, who wrote Celine a funny little poem; Wendell, who admitted he had been cheated on his last relationship but was ready to be vulnerable again; Na'eem, who showed off a massive Superman tattoo on his chest but boasted inner beauty and revealed he has two beautiful daughters; and Wai, who performed some acrobatic stunts on a chair in a speedo for a shocked audience.
Once this round concluded, Celine advanced the men she connected with and would like to get to know better: Steve, Tommy, Wendell, and Na'eem.
In the next stage of competition, Celine was allowed to ask each man a serious question about topics that matter to her, such as religion, politics, past relationships, or even sex -- and each man was given 30 seconds to answer.
Steve had to reveal the last time he was hurt by a woman, and he said it was in his last relationship, which was a little over a year ago. He thought it was going to last, but he attempted to force things that weren't really there, and he never wants to do that again.
Celine asked Tommy how experimental he is in the bedroom, and Tommy actually disclosed he's a virgin who is waiting for marriage to have sex.
Wendell was asked whether he'll have time to be in a committed relationship given his profession, and he insisted family and a relationship would come first in his life and he would prioritize his time. Wendell also said it takes a lot for him to get stressed out.
And Na'eem explained Celine shouldn't be concerned his daughters are with two different women because he welcomed his oldest child when he was only 18-years-old. Na'eem said he had to learn about life the hard way because he was missing a stable father figure in his own life.
Following the interview round, Celine wanted to keep seeing Wendell, Tommy and Steve.
The three men then got to meet Celine's father, who was afforded the opportunity to ask each man a question since he could potentially become his future son-in-law.
Celine's dad made it known education and religion are very important in his family and some men can be intimidated by Celine's career and the fact she's at the top in her field. The men didn't have a lot to say, nor did they reveal any significant details about their lives, but none of the guys crashed and burned either.
Celine decided to advance Tommy and Steve to the final round. As a result, these two men got to meet her face-to-face, and they both seemed very pleased with her appearance.
Celine was confident her fiance was in that room, and she told her Final 2 suitors they shared a similar type of energy that she has, which is why she picked them to begin with.
Tommy and Steve were then instructed to explain to Celine how far they'd be willing to go for love and for her. But before that, both men asked for Celine's father's blessing to propose marriage.
In his speech, Tommy told Celine that she seemed very special and he'd love to provide her with security, peace, laughter and joy. He also wanted to feed her some bacon and insisted he had fallen in love at first sight with her.
Tommy then got down on one knee and asked, "Would you marry me?"
When it became Steve's time to open up his heart, he said Celine looked absolutely stunning and he wanted to grow their instant connection. Steve added that he needs a wedding date for multiple weddings coming up out of state and the best way to get to know someone is through traveling.
"So I would like to propose to you that you join me at these weddings as my fiancee," Steve said, while kneeling and presenting Celine with an engagement ring. "Will you marry me?"
Celine had a very tough decision to make given she was offered two beautiful marriage proposals. She could tell both men had "warm hearts" and were caring.
But in the end, Celine chose Tommy and accepted his marriage proposal. Tommy picked Celine up and spun her around, and then they kissed onstage.
