The Bachelor in Paradise Finale: One Couple Gets Engaged and Another Starts Talking Marriage!


Though the month in Mexico ended in heartbreak for some of the summer spinoff series Bachelor in Paradise castoffs, others left with the love of his or her life during last night's season finale.

First things first: We heard a few months ago that Marcus, a finalist on Andi Dorfman's recent season of The Bachelorette, and Lacy, who competed on Juan Pablo's season of The Bachelor, got engaged on their last day in paradise, and it turns out that the rumors were true!

"Being around you and holding you and kissing you and feeling truly cared about and loved by you has been some of the most memorable times of my life, and I want to continue that with you forever," Marcus said before handing out his final rose to Lacy, dropping to one knee and pulling an engagement ring out of his pocket. "So, Lacy, will you marry me?"

Obviously, she said yes. Go-to Bachelor jeweler Neil Lane provided the bling, a diamond set in a platinum pavé band featuring 161 small round brilliant-cut stones, totaling 3.68 carats of sparkle, according to People.

As they enjoy their now-public engagement, the duo is making wedding plans. Marcus told People they want to "wait a year" to tie the knot.

Lacy agreed, saying, "We've talked about it and I've been on Pinterest a lot. He sends me bridal magazines, so he wants it to be on my mind. He's coming to see my home, and I'm going to see his home, so we're going to decide after that where we're going to live together."

While many other couples on the finale split, unlikely duo Michelle Money and Cody Sattler not only left together, but they're getting very serious. Cody is planning to move from Iowa, to Salt Lake City to be with Michelle and her daughter! Naturally, it's a sign of another yet to come. "I wouldn't be moving to Salt Lake City if I didn't see [marriage] in the future," he told Us Weekly. "I can't wait to call this woman my wife. I want to get married, and I can't think of a better person to spend my life with than Michelle."

Lest it seem like the love is one-sided, Michelle also told Us that she sees a Bachelor-style televised wedding in their future. "We just talked about this!" she said. "It's so cool that people watched us fall in love, so I don't see why we wouldn't do something so people can continue the journey with us. I think it would be fun."
