Hearts broken as Sam wins The Bachelor and a proposal
UPDATE: MELBOURNE beauty Sam Frost won The Bachelor's heart and a marriage proposal on the reality dating show's finale tonight.
Perth real estate auctioneer Blake Garvey declared his love for the 25-year-old, choosing her over Queensland bachelorette Lisa Hyde.
"I've never been more sure of anything, ever," Garvey said after getting down on bended knee.
"I have no doubts in my mind; you are the one for me."
"It feels like a modern fairytale," Frost said.
EARLIER: VIEWERS are now one step closer to finding out which woman Blake Garvey wants to marry on The Bachelor.
Last night's episode saw the hunky Perth real estate auctioneer fly to Cape Town with the final three bachelorettes Sam Frost, Lisa Hyde and Louise Pillidge.
Brisbane events coordinator Pillidge didn't get a rose after Garvey admitted to stronger feelings for the other two women.
"When I signed up to it I understood what potentially could happen," Pillidge told APN.
"With anything you need to take risks. I've been very open and what's meant to be will be. At the end of the day everyone will end up how it's meant to be."
The three women were treated to extravagant dates during the first installment of the South African adventure.
In an adrenaline-filled date, Garvey took Frost cage diving with great white sharks, while Pillidge was treated to wine tasting
Hyde spent some quality time with The Bachelor and at a local school and she was brought to tears by the enthusiasm of the schoolchildren.
"I'm going to remember these kids forever," she said.
Hyde and Garvey then took a scenic helicopter tour of scenic Cape Town.
Both of the other two women, Frost and Pillidge, told Garvey they loved him but Hyde was hesitant to say the L-word to Garvey, who called her a kindred spirit with whom he could see himself raising a family.
"There's a lot to lose; I'm not the only girl here," Hyde said.
"I'm putting my heart on the line to a guy who's dating two other girls."
Tonight Hyde and Frost will meet Garvey's mum Andrea and face the same scrutiny he did when he met their families in the hometown dates last week.
