Can't wait for Monday's Bachelorette finale?
The new Us Weekly, out now, has exclusive details — and photos — of Ashley Hebert's final, pre-proposal moments in Fiji with her last two men standing, JP Rosenbaum and Ben Flajnik.
"I liked so many things about both of them," the 27-year-old dental student tells Us of her remaining suitors. "But at the end, I knew exactly how I felt."
Still, Us has learned that unlike predecessor Ali Fedotowsky, who let one beau go before the final rose ceremony, Hebert kept both men in suspense until the last minute — leaving each one ready to propose. "Both guys get full-on down on one knee," reveals a Bachelorette insider.
Prior to making her decision, Hebert went on one last date with each guy in Fiji.
Hebert and Flajnik could have passed for honeymooners during their May 11 lunch on the beach, which was followed by a walk along the picture-perfect shore. When it was Rosenbaum's turn, the pair kayaked to the deserted island of Vomo Lailai for a picnic and private time. Saying goodbye, "they kissed and held each other for a very long time," an observer tells Us.
The next day's climactic proposal didn't go as smoothly. For the jilted suitor, the rejection was devastating. "Viewers will see something from one of the guys you've never really seen before: anger," adds the insider. "There's no friendship with Ashley after that."
"Shaken" by the rejected suitor's reaction, Hebert got teary when the winner asked for her hand in marriage.
"There is no doubt these two will get married," says the insider. "They are really in love!"
The Bachelorette finale airs Monday at 8 p.m. (EST) on ABC.
