SMW’s Last BACHELORETTE Recap!

JillianPicksEdOkay, it’s big night for Jilly!!!!

Her “Meet My Parents” night takes place on the Big Island, in  Hawaii…

Jilly’s parents come to meet the guys.  Ed fits in well with them all, as they hula on the lanai.

Jilly: “There’s not much Ed has to say to convince me that he’s in love with me…”

Her family weighs in:

Sis Tori sees her physical and emotional connection to Kiptyn. “He’s the yin to your yang.”

Mom leans toward Kiptyn, too. “He seems more comfortable, more rounded.”

Dad: Calls both guys “true gentleman.” However, Ed told him Dad he was in love with Jilly. And since Dad didn’t have to ask that question, that was big in his book. Also, Ed asked him if he could marry his daughter. “He knew what his feelings were about; he wasn’t questioning his judgement.”

Jilly’s Mom: “He is falling, but more cautious. I think he’s in it for the long haul. They are both looking for the happily ever after.”

Then Tori tells dad to quit pushing Ed. (THANK U!)

Jilly want’s a one-to-one with Tori.  She tells her how Kip and her were ready to rip each other’s clothes off. Whereas with Ed… “It worried me a little. I am looking for a best friend, but I want that other thing there, too.”

Sis: That’s a BIG thing….”  But she’ll support her in any decisions she makes.

Her last date with Ed:

In a chopper, to see the insides of a volcano… and it erupts, which allows Ed to give her a big ol’ kiss… Then the copter lands in a rainforest, where they have a picnic in a pagoda by a lagoon.  He tells her she’s a genius (“I’m still here, so that’s proof”) and that she’s perfect for him.  Then he caps it with: “I will never leave you again.”

Jilly: I’m looking at and thinking how crazy I am about him. Today I want him to continue to give me those reasons.”

They swim and kiss in the lagoon.

Ed: “I’m 100% crazy about her. I want to be with her forever. There was a lot of pressure on me, but I want to take this to the next level (tonight)”

Jilly: “The puzzle isn’t completed. There is still some missing pieces. This is my last chance to spend time with him. I want to see that the romance and passion is there…”

Ed: “I would love to be with you forever.  I love you…” (He whispers this last.)

Jilly: This date I have with Ed is exactly what I needed.  That physical piece was there.”  CUE VOLCANO….CORNY!!!!!!

NOW, FOR KIPTYN:

Kip: “Jilly is the kind of woman I could fall in love with…She’s the girl I could live the rest of my life with…”

Jilly: “I love him, I think He loves me. But I need to hear it from him.”

Thyego on a surfboard, to a lagoon beach, and a picnic.

Kip: “It’s gotten to the point that I just want to be with her. I want to be with the girl I love.”

Jilly: “Kip is the best catch I’ve had in my life. If his feelings for me are as strong, the sky’s the limit.”

Wow! He paddles the surfboard into the breakers with her.  Him: “Tonight is incredibly important, because it’s the last night I have to tell Jill exactly how I feel…”

Kip, to camera: “As nervous as I am tonight, I’m excited…to put it all out there.”

To Her:  “Losing you would be hard. It’s taken me a little while to get where we’re at, but that’s why I see a future with us.  A lifetime. I can see a lifee tiwh you.  right now, you adn me, let’s do this, forever. I to tell your dad, “I want to spend my life with your daughter.’

Her: This is exactly what I need to hear from Kiptyn. I’m excstatic ti see that he’s ready to make a life with me. It feels great to hear him say those things.”

Kip: “With her I can see kids, the family, an amazing life together.”….”I think we have the opportunity to have a life that people envy.”…”I think you have to be head over heels, you have to be sure, to do that.”

Jilly whispers: “Thank you. I love you.”

To the camera:  “I feel like I’m in a fairy tale right now….I would be lucky to spend the rest of my life with Kiptyn.’

She debates Kip:  There is that physical attraction…but he’s always been the dumper….”

And Ed: “And I love his energy…”

Kip looks at rings, loves one that has over 3 carats of diamonds (Ba-da-BING!!!!)

Ed:  “When I woke up, I felt like husband and wife with her.  Jillian giving me a second chance could change our lives forever.”

Ed has a hard time making up his mind about the ring…. Finally he chooses….

Kip: ‘I definitely want to be the last man here…”

Ed: “There is nothing that will prevent me from gettingsown on one knew and asking her to marry me.”

Her: “It’s wierd to think I could have a ring on my finger in a couple of hours…”

Ed: “I’ve never been so in love in my life…”

Jilly: “Knowing that I respect him, I know I’m madly crazy in love with him…”

They have a wonderful wooden walkway, at the end of a pool,

Jilly: “Normally I’d be scared and confused, but I’m not. I’m already looking foward to our new life together…”

Rose Cermony with Kip;  She let’s him down easy.  Jilly, you fool….he was THE FULL PACKAGE.

Kip is upset in the limo.  His head rols back “This hurts bad right now…I just wanted to give it all…”  He’s upset he couldn’t give her the ring… “I didn’t realize those would be the last words I’d say to her…”

Saying goodbye to him is excrutiating. I’ve been crazy about him since I met him.   that guy will make some lucky girl very happy.”

Him: “It was so natural, form the beginning.  Know that I won’t go through with it hurts. Today I’m definitely heartbroken.”

REID COMES BACK:  Tells her that he feels bad that he never came out and told her how he really feels.

She asks him to wait.

BUT After a talk with Phil, the host, she knows, deep down in her heart, that she would rather be Ed’s wife.

She tells Reid goodbye.

REID: “I told her what I had to say. It was too late.”

Okay, Now it’s Ed’s turn:

Jilly: “I can see my life with him forever, 50 years from now. We are best friends, we have that spark, that chemistry. We’re ready to take that plunge. I am madly in love with Ed. I ready for him to wlak down that path to me, so that I can tell him I want to spend my life with him.

You may not know who you’ve impacted me. How you’ve changed me as a man… You are beautiful, confident…

I know that I lvoe you, but before we go any further, I need to know that you love me.  THere is no doubt in my mind that I love you so much.”

They kiss each other… can’t let go, She leans into him.

Then he says: “One last thing.”  Gets on his knees: “I love you you. I want to be with you forever. Will you marry me?”

Her “Absolutely?”  THen in his ear: “I am crazy about you….”
