After his family meets the two women who have captured his heart in Cape Town, South Africa, and he shares emotional last dates with both of them, Brad Womack’s search for a soul mate culminates when he finally chooses between Chantal and Emily on the Monday, March 14th finale of The Bachelor.
Chantal arrives first and quickly wins over the Womack family with her outgoing personality and declaration that she’s learned from her divorce and is certain she has found true love with Brad.
Emily follows and tension escalates when Brad reveals that she has a daughter. Brad’s family is deeply moved, when Emily recounts the heartbreaking story of how her ex-fiance died in a plane crash. Nevertheless, they’re concerned about Brad’s readiness to step into the role of father.
Brad hopes his final dates with Chantal and Emily will bring clarity as to whom he should choose. He and Chantal embark on a daredevil adventure, when they go swimming with sharks and Chantal is justifiably terrified. Later that night, Chantal opens up her heart to Brad.
The next day, Brad takes Emily on a helicopter ride over Cape Town and things are going wonderfully, until Emily begins questioning whether Brad is really prepared to be a dad to her daughter. Brad leaves the date confused and with the biggest decision of his life facing him.
Will Brad complete his search for a soul mate with a proposal? And will the woman he picks say yes, if he does? Viewers will find out in the episode’s dramatic conclusion.
