However, Jerry I decided to show Both Leslie and Teresa to his family. This decision, host Jesse Palmer It saidwas Jerry’s way of “letting it go to the end.”

“I think he was very open to every conversation, every moment with these women, potentially opening new doors and discovering more.

Jerry decided to “start over” after getting that off his chest, and he and Leslie drank wine, laughed, and enjoyed each other’s company. Leslie pulled at Jerry’s heartstrings when she presented him with an album filled with memories from their time together.

“Be happy,” Jerry said to Leslie after hugging her through her tears. “Be happy too,” she replied.

“I have a difficult decision to make,” he replied. “It’s harder than I thought possible.”

Jerry returned to Leslie’s room to talk to her again, deciding to end things once and for all.

“It’s been difficult and I’ve made a decision on how I want to deal with this,” he said. “I fell in love with Teresa, and this is the direction I’m going to take.”

She wondered if everything he told her in the Fantasy Suite was a “complete and utter lie”, which he denied, saying “at the time it was the truth”.

“If I had known that this was the amount of pain I was going to cause someone, I would not have taken the first step on this journey,” Jerry said.

Leslie said the whole thing was “typical” of her life and how “nobody chooses me.”

“You made it seem like you chose me. You said things that made me feel like that would be the case,” she cried. “She led me down the road, then took a turn and left me there. That’s how I feel. Honestly, it’s mind-boggling.”

“I’m sorry. I wish there was something I could say, but I know there’s nothing,” Jerry replied.

Leslie noted that “Teresa is a great girl,” but said she was “stunned” by the turn of events.

Jerry left the room for a second time, while Leslie hit the cameras.

“I’m tired of putting myself out there,” she said. “time is running out.”

Unsurprisingly, the moment was emotional, as Jesse previously told ET, “I think this is the most emotional goodbye I’ve ever seen in the history of the show — from Bachelor’s, Bachelorette, heaven. I mean, it’s really frustrating. “It’s heart-wrenching.”

Jerry was also breaking down, telling Jesse: “I took a really good person and f–king broke his heart. I hate myself… I think the only time I’ve ever felt bad in my life was when my wife died.” Far away and this is a close second.”

“That moment, that conversation with Jerry, was as raw a conversation as I’ve ever had with anyone, and it was probably the rawest conversation I’ve ever seen or had with anyone since I’ve been hosting the show,” Jesse previously told ET. “That’s a moment I’ll never forget. Just because I saw it was heartbreaking for him. The way he described it, it was so profound. I don’t even know how to describe it. It was just really intense.”

During the live portion of the show, Leslie spoke out, telling Jessie: “The sadness that I felt, the trauma that happened to me, and all those feelings that I’m watching again, seeing that again…I’m devastated.” I’ve been unapologetically myself through this. The whole thing… I haven’t fallen in love with someone in a long time, so it was hard. “It’s really hard.”

“I was so sad, because I was 100% sure that I was his girl [because of] She added: “The things he said to me during the night… I felt like I could be a member of that family in a heartbeat… I didn’t expect that.” “… I went and chose a dress, I wrote my vows, and I imagined us living a life together.” “You planned this whole life for us. He shot me hard, so it was much harder for me to fall.”

“I don’t know where it went wrong,” she said. “I feel like you painted a picture for me of what our lives could look like… You had the choice not to tell me these things… The other things we talked about, the plans we made, I was devastated.”

Jerry apologized, saying that his “heart was not prepared” for this process, which became “more difficult” as the weeks passed. He explained that he gave each person his “undivided attention,” thus engaging in moments with each woman.

“You were the person I thought was my person until I learned you weren’t,” he said, adding that his relationship “was better with someone else.”

Although Leslie did not accept Jerry’s apology, she said she understood. “I wish I could have done a better job,” Jerry added.

Despite everything, Leslie said she was “so happy” that Jerry said “I love you” to her, because it “opened my heart” to the possibility of love in the future.

“I deserve it,” she said. “I will find it out.”
