Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist to marry Golden Wedding Live on ABC
'The Golden Bachelor' Gerry Turner proposed to Theresa Nist, and the couple will tie the knot on January 4, 2024. ABC will air their wedding.
After 72-year-old Gerry Turner proposed to the love of his life, Theresa Nist, on the live finale of 'The Golden Bachelor,' the couple announced that they will be tying the knot on January 4, 2024. Turner, who lost his wife of 43 years in 2017, and Nist, who was married to her husband for 42 years before he passed away, found love again in each other.
During the emotional proposal, Turner expressed his love for Nist, telling her, "Theresa, I love you 1000%. I'm never going to stop believing it. Every day I choose you. Will you marry me?" Nist tearfully accepted, exclaiming, "You make me the happiest woman in the world."
The couple also revealed that they will have their wedding televised in a special called 'The Golden Wedding,' which will be aired at 8 p.m. on ABC. This will be the first televised wedding for the franchise since The Bachelor favorites Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici tied the knot in 2014.
In a surprising turn of events, runner-up Leslie Fhima, who had opened up and fallen in love with Turner, parted ways with him in Costa Rica. Reflecting on her experience, Fhima said, "I broke down my walls, and I fell in love with him so much. I haven't fallen in love with someone in a really long time, so it was hard." Turner, however, explained that it wasn't about something going wrong, but rather about finding the right person in the wrong direction.
Looking ahead to their future together, Turner and Nist expressed their eagerness to get married as soon as possible, acknowledging that time is of the essence at their age. They also announced that they will be going on a trip to Italy, which they plan to use as their honeymoon. The couple's love story, filled with hope and new beginnings, has captured the hearts of viewers, and their upcoming wedding is highly anticipated.
