Bachelorette Jillian Picks Ed
She said yes... to Ed Swiderski!
On the July 27 finale of ABC's The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, 29, accepted a marriage proposal from Chicago tech consultant Swiderski, 29.
"You're everything I could ever ask for in a woman...you make me smile when I look in your eyes," he told Harris.
"I've been waiting to tell you 'I love you' for so long," she replied tearfully.
But before the joy, there was plenty of heartbreak as Harris rejected two other men.
Reid Rosenthal, a 30-year-old realtor from Philadelphia, whom Harris had rejected on a previous episode, returned to the show to plead his case – unsuccessfully.
Swiderski's own road to the finale was a rocky one. He left the show to tend to his job on episode five, but later returned saying he made a "huge mistake."
And during the July 14 episode, he had performance problems with Harris on their date in the fantasy suite.
