Brooks Forester says he's beyond happy for Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried's engagement, but does not regret flaking out on The Bachelorette when he did.

Though some fans were hoping - and The Bachelorette spoilers predicted - Brooks would return in the finale and beg for a second chance, he did not.

Brooks, who is single, has no regrets about that, either.

"I know I made the right decision," Forester says.

"That was about being honest with Des and myself and that conversation, as difficult as it was and as bad as it hurt. I just don't know how I can regret being honest."

"I look back and say that was the right decision."

The Bachelorette season finale is upon us at last, THGers.

As advertised all summer, the tail end of the season has been like no other before it, with three finalists still in the running and so many questions unanswered.

Will Brooks Forester be back? Will Desiree Hartsock take him back? Will she leave single and crushed, or was last week's cliffhanger just clever editing?

If you don't want to wait, you can always check out The Bachelorette spoilers on THG, but either way, we think you'll want to stick around for this.

Check out our LIVE recap of the season finale below!

Bachelorette Final 2/3

We're still in Antigua with Desiree casually hanging out on a porch overlooking exotic waters. She's heartbroken over Brooks' shocking revelation last week.

She sits down with Chris Harrison for a chat and immediately begins to cry. Her lips are really glossy though? 

Thought #1: Would they really give us two hours of Des crying into a microphone? Thought #2: Would people buy that if they made it an album?

Chris seems to suggest that Des should pick either Chris or Drew since she can't have Brooks. Minus 25. She sees positives to both of them. 

Her heart is broken but her spirit isn't, so she's going to go ahead and spend time with the remaining two bachelors. Just in case. Maybe. 

Chris tells her she's being brave. She doesn't have a clue what to do.

For The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock, it all comes down to this.

A season full of turmoil comes to a conclusion tonight on ABC, with so much still up in the air. Will Brooks be back? Will Des leave single and heartbroken?

Will Chris and Drew find out about last week? Do they have any shot?

Here's a look at what The Bachelorette spoilers indicate about this evening's finale, why they could be wrong, and why they're probably not wrong ...

First, a brief rundown on last week's drama: After two fabulous dates with Chris and Drew, Brooks CRUSHED Des with the revelation that he's not ready.

Awkwardness and tears ensued like never before on this show.

Which is certainly saying something. As is the fact that, unheard of in The Bachelorette universe, there was no rose ceremony, no elimination ... nothing.

All three finalists are still technically in the mix ... or are they?

There's never been a season quite like this one, which has left fans clueless, up in arms and clamoring for The Bachelorette spoilers heading into the finale.

In part one of the two-part, five-hour season-ender, leading lady Desiree Hartsock was awkwardly, painfully dumped by her first choice, Brooks Forester.

She has two guys left, but having basically admitted that her feelings for Drew Kenney and Chris Siegfried aren't on that same level, what will she do now?

ABC has not released a single clip beyond Desiree talking to host Chris Harrison to talk about Brooks' exit. How the heck are they going to fill 2-3 hours?

Harrison teases that “There's nothing typical about this finale.”

No kidding. But does Brooks Forester come back or what?

As fans pore over The Bachelorette spoilers and try to make sense of what transpired two nights ago, one thing is very clear for Brooks Forester:

He regretted what played out on part one of the season finale. Immediately.

Brooks Forester and Desiree

Millions of viewers cringed as Brooks Forester crushed leading lady Desiree Hartsock's hopes and dreams Monday night, leading to anguish in Antigua.

Despite his desire to be madly in love with her, he just... wasn't. Awkward pauses followed. Tears ensued. Then more tears. Then they parted ways.

But is it over for good? Despite his actions Monday, don't write Brooks off yet.

While careful not to reveal The Bachelorette spoilers concerning next Monday's finale, Desiree Hartsock is speaking out about last night's events.

In a shocking twist, Brooks Forester vaguely, awkwardly dumped her in an epic breakup that resulted in endless tears and consumed an hour of TV.

Truly, it is the most surprising ending to The Bachelorette we've seen, just as the producers promised. Heading into next week, so many questions linger.

Is Brooks gone for good? Is Des done for good after this rejection?

What about Chris and Drew? Do either stand a chance? And how will they fill two hours? We'll find out in Monday's conclusion of this two-part finale.

For now, let's hear what Hartsock had to say about last night:

Tonight's the night! Errr, sort of.

Previews have shown all three remaining men, and Des herself, in tears, with The Bachelorette spoilers promising a shocking ending!

Just which of these eligible bachelors will Desiree Hartsock choose as her quest for love reaches part one of a "shocking" season-ender?

Let's find out in THG's +/- recap!

Des said "fairy tale." Minus 4. Recap of the entire season after we just recapped the entire season last week during the Men Tell All episode. Minus 10.

More of Chris' awful poetry. Minus 2. More of Drew who, let's be clear, doesn't exactly scream straight male in this "for all the right reasons." Minus 5. 

And then there's Brooks. Desiree's feelings for him are "set apart" from her feelings for the other guys. Everything about this opening says that she chooses him. Everything.

Except the fact that he's apparently unsure of the fact that he's expected to propose to her at the end of this. So that's not good. (Or it's smart and very good because it means he's serious? Who knows.)

The web has been abuzz with The Bachelorette spoilers this month, as fans Desiree Hartsock prepares for what could be a rocky lead-up to the finale.

While in the past, The Bachelor or The Bachelorette spoilers have centered around which suitor the star would pick, this year looks a bit different.

Heading into the August 5 season-ender, most of the uncertainty surrounding Desiree Hartsock relates to whether she ends up engaged or heartbroken.

Brooks Forester has been the favorite all season long, both among those offering spoilers and on screen. Des has even admitted she's in love.

So what's the big twist keeping this from being a foregone conclusion?

Desiree Hartsock is closing in on get her fairy-tale ending, and according to The Bachelorette spoilers we've read, the season finale may not surprise viewers.

Or will it?

Desiree is in fact engaged, some reports indicate, and given that she's already sharing that she's in love with Brooks Forester, he seems like the obvious pick.

There's something unusual about the editing approach this season, however, beginning with her openness about that fact, and the overall scheduling.

The Men Tell All special airs next week, a week earlier than normal, essentially setting up a two-part finale after that with three guys still remaining.

The Bachelorette final three are set and off to the overnight dates after the somewhat surprising elimination of Zak Waddell on Monday's episode.

So who's it gonna be?

If you've read The Bachelorette spoilers at all this season, you know she's been really into one guy from the onset. Did last night change any of that?

Brooks Forester is the man Des said she was in love with prior to the hometown dates, but Chris Siegfried and Drew Kenney both helped their chances.

Enough to pull an upset over Brooks? That's the million-dollar question.
