The Messy Bachelorette Finale: Finally Delivering a Good Bachelor

"The Bachelorette" finale has left fans devastated, but it has also given hope for a new era for "The Bachelor."

Bachelor Nation, let's take a moment to reflect on the emotional rollercoaster that was Charity Lawson's Bachelorette finale. It was undoubtedly one of the most devastating in franchise history, leaving us surrounded by a pile of tissues. But amidst the tears, there is a silver lining. This heart-wrenching finale has paved the way for a new era in The Bachelor. Finally, we have a Bachelor that fans can truly root for.

Charity faced an impossibly difficult choice between two incredible men, integrative medicine consultant Dotun Olubeko and tennis pro Joey Graziadei. Both contestants were cream-of-the-crop, once-in-a-decade dreamboats that restored our faith in love. It was a race between two romantic connections so compelling that the choice was bound to sting, no matter the outcome.

In the end, Joey was the first to propose, and the live audience moaned with sadness, knowing that the one who exits the van first is usually the one who gets sent home. But this time, no one wanted Joey to go home, and no one wanted Dotun to go home either. It was a heart-breaking best-case scenario. However, this bittersweet ending sets the stage for Joey's season as the next Bachelor, promising to turn the trend of lackluster Bachelors around.

The road to this finale was filled with its fair share of drama. Aaron Bryant's unexpected appearance during the rose ceremony confused both Dotun and Joey, leading to his elimination. Charity's family seemed more reserved about Dotun, which raised concerns. However, in a refreshing break from tradition, Charity's mother declined to influence her decision, leaving Charity to make the choice herself.

The final moments before the rose ceremony were agonizing, with both Joey and Dotun bidding farewell to Charity with heartfelt parting gifts. Joey gave her a framed copy of a love poem they wrote together, while Dotun set up a treasure hunt that led to a locket with their baby photos. These gestures showcased the incredible depth of their connections.

Joey's departure was devastating, but his announcement as the next Bachelor offers hope for a lovable hunk to lead the show. The Bachelor has been lacking in recent seasons, with lackluster leads and messy storylines. But Joey's truncated love story with Charity will only make his own journey more compelling.

And let's not forget Dotun's swoon-worthy proposal. His words melted hearts as he professed his love for Charity and asked her to turn their fairytale into a reality. It was a moment that restored our belief in love.

Amidst all the chaos and surprises of this episode, including Charity joining Dancing with the Stars and a bizarre Bachelor in Paradise trailer, the presence of Pilot Pete's mother, Barb, stood out. While her purpose at the finale remains a mystery, it didn't matter in the grand scheme of things. We were too busy basking in the glorious outcome of this season, murmuring to ourselves, "We really needed this."

So, Bachelor Nation, let's revel in the joy and hope that this finale has brought us. We finally have a Bachelor we can root for, and a love story that reminds us why we fell in love with this franchise in the first place.
