It’s over, guys.
It’s been the highest-rated season yet, and with good reason. There were steamy kisses. There were love confessions. There were broken hearts and go-kart races and a bajillion de-thorned roses.
As voted by you, our Bachelor experts, here are the top Diamond Grade Moments from season three of The Bachelor – the Cute, the Cunning, the Charming, and the Cringeworthy. And, of course, the moment we all waited for – a diamond ring.
Our favourite cunning moment brings us all the way back to week one. Remember Sandra? Crazy, loud, in-your-face Sandra? Man, was she great. Sandra started the show with a bang by saying something rude about one of the other girls (shock, horror! Shouldn’t all the girls work as a team to trap Sam into one happy polygamous family? No? Okay).
Reshel told Sandra to be less of a b**** (in more refined terms), so to prove she wasn’t being one, Sandra gathered all twenty girls and passive aggressively explained to (well, at) Reshel why she was the rude one for calling Sandra rude.
Sigh. Good times. #bachlyf.
Everyone fell in love with Heather by the time she got to the final four. She was cool, laid-back, and a little bit nerdy. Back in week three, we expected she was a little more intense than she was letting on, and judging by how horribly crushed she was when Sam booted her last week, we were right.
In week three, Heather was playing her cards very close to her chest, not telling the other girls about the kiss that she and Sam had shared. And then, when she had a moment alone with him at the cocktail party, she shyly told him that she ‘missed’ him. STOP IT, HEATHER. Ignoring the fact that she missed him because he was busily kissing nine other girls, it was pretty darn cute.
Soz, Heather. Hope someone else buys you a whole bouquet of roses.
There was a clear winner here. Nina did the BEST, most AWKWARD thing of the entire series. During the go-kart race (you know, just another classic moment when the girls were trying to win the Bachelor’s affection by zooming around in tiny cars), Nina and Emily were trying to beat the living daylights out of each other. They actually seemed as though they would like to run each other down on the go-kart track.
