After four TV attempts, The Bachelor's Nick Viall finally got down on one knee and proposed to his winner Vanessa Grimaldi on Monday night's season finale.
"I will never forget the first moment I saw you," Viall told Grimaldi. "Every moment since then I've been falling more and more in love with you. There have been plenty of times where I've tried to fight it and I don't want to fight it anymore because I do love you. I'm in love with you. So much about me being here has to do with the past. When I look at you, all I see is my future."
Following the episode, host Chris Harrison called On Air with Ryan Seacrest Tuesday morning to give an update on Viall and Grimaldi's relationship status and reveal their post-show plans.
"They have not set a [wedding] date as of yet, but they are still happy, they are engaged, they're doing great, very much in love," Harrison said, "and now, as we talked about on the show last night, they're just going to try and figure out where they're going to live, what they're going to do, and start living in the real world."
Viall and Grimaldi made their first public debut during the live After the Final Rose special that aired immediately after the finale on ABC. As promised, the franchise delivered a Bachelor first by surprising Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay, who finished third on Viall's cycle, by introducing her to four of the contestants who will be competing on her upcoming season.
"That was something we wanted to try...We're always trying to raise the bar and change things up," Harrison said. "Everybody knows our production starts in a couple of days, so we thought, 'Why not just start it live on the air? Why not give Bachelor Nation a look behind the curtain like they've never had before and try something new."
