But as the season comes to an end tonight, only one rose remains. As the finale finally airs, The Bachelor sees Graziadei with a ring in his hand, trying to pick between the two remaining women going into tonight’s Bachelor finale on ABC — here’s where Bachelor Nation can catch up on the hit franchise, with and without cable.

The Bachelor Finale Sneak Peek

Now in the last week of the season — and streaming online — The Bachelor‘s finale episode sees the final two women meeting Joey’s family before the final rose ceremony. “I do have two amazing women here,” Joey says in The Bachelor‘s finale teaser trailer ahead of tonight’s episode. “I can picture a life with both of them, but there’s still a fear if that person is going to choose me,” he adds later in the clip.

Last week, the previous contestants returned for a tell-all conversation, along with the reveal of what was written inside one of the final contestant’s notes to Joey before he gives out his final rose.

“The reason why I doubt if someone’s going to say yes has to do what I still feel about myself,” Joey says in the “Women Tell All” episode clip, below. “There is still just a little glimmer of doubt,” Joey later says in the teaser trailer, “because the last time I did this, someone said no.”

The Bachelor Season 28 Cast (Remaining Contestants)

Spoilers ahead: The remaining women going into tonight’s Bachelor finale episode are:

  • Daisy, 25, account executive (Becker, Minnesota)
  • Kelsey A., 25, junior project manager (New Orleans, Louisiana)
