He added: 'I hope we came across as in love and passionate tonight. The reality is — we joke about it, but it’s true — we don’t know what it’s like to go to the movies together, we don’t know what it’s like to spend time together in the real world.

'Our relationship has been based off of stressful situations,' said Viall. 

So the couple are focused on their future.

Diamonds are all around the band too. 

'It's a traditional ring with an old-fashioned feel. It's got an old-soul–it's classic and elegant,' another source shared told E! 'He chose it because that's what he thinks of her.'

The 29-year-old special ed teacher from Montreal accepted his proposal after much doubts and pontificating and they rode off together.

'Shall we go start our life?' said Nick, a 36-year-old Wisconsin native who's been heartbroken on the show twice before.

The devastated runner-up was Raven Gates, a 25-year-old fashion boutique owner from Arkansas, who left sobbing in a limo.

The show opened in snow-covered Rovaniemi in northern Finland.

'Apparently Santa Claus lives here,' said Nick.

Raven met his parents for the second time.

Nick's little sister Bella was gunning for Raven, while his father Chris deemed her 'mature' and 'a great partner for Nick'.

His mother Mary called her 'honest and true'.

It was his family's first meeting with Vanessa.

She wooed them with the story of their first date, but expressed hesitation about rushing into marriage.

'There's a lot of things I want to talk about with Nick before the actual proposal date,' she told his father tearfully.

Each woman had one final date with Nick in Lapland.

At the ceremony, Raven was the first to come in.

'I think about how much I've grown to care about you, respect you, and I feel, like, how much love I have for you…I just don't know if I'm in love,' he sniffed.

'Like my heart's somewhere else,' he admitted.

'I'm torn up inside letting you go. …I'm sorry,' he told her.

Vanessa appeared and he spilled his guts. 'I will never forget the moment I saw you,' he told her. 

'I don't want to fight it anymore…I'm in love with you,' he cried, getting down on one knee as he asked her to marry him.

Vanessa said yes and then formally accepted the final rose.

Nick previously tried finding love on two seasons of The Bachelorette and on Bachelor In Paradise.

After the show the two were seen on After The Final Rose then Jimmy Kimmel.
