He gave her the rose and an engagement ring.

She reacted like she sat on his face. Then she surprised him with a very classy photo spread in Girls Gone Wild magazine.

But The Bachelor star, Matt Grant, says he has no problem with fame-whore fiancée Shayne Lamas' revealing pictures in Joe Francis' rag.

"As we English say, I really feel it was ‘a storm in a teacup,'" Grant said. "I believe it was blown out of proportion. I stand by Shayne 110 percent."

There was a flurry of media appearances after Grant got down on one knee to propose to Lamas on the finale of The Bachelor, but crickets after the Girls Gone Wild photos hit the web the very next Tuesday.

The pictures in the issue out June 3 do not show Shayne Lamas naked, but in this shot, she's wearing little more than a smile and a wedding veil.

Shayne Lamas won the final rose on the The Bachelor Monday when Matt Grant got down on one knee and proposed to the 22-year-old fame-seeking ditz aspiring actress with a 2.85-carat Tacori platinum and diamond eternity ring.

The soon-to-be-wed couple spoke to Us Weekly about falling in love on reality TV, e-mailing 50 times a day and their wedding plans:

Us: Let's talk about the happy news and how you're feeling. Matt what made you choose Shayne on The Bachelor finale?

Shayne Lamas and Matt Grant: Together for at least a few months.

Matt Grant: Well, from really early on it was obvious that Shayne and I had chemistry, a natural rapport. Everything was just always a pleasure to be around her. I always at ease and it always felt that we were at ease. If anything, it was just almost the point feeling negative from it was that she's too good to be true. It's funny cause I kept saying to myself, off set, at my hotel, it's almost too good to be true - quite the negative. I realized there really wasn't any that we did just spin it. It's just kind of funny when you don't expect that when you meet someone on reality TV.

Shayne Lamas: I feel the same way.

Us: Obviously the chemistry between you two was pretty obvious throughout the entire the series, I would say. How are you both feeling now?

That took a whole 12 hours.

She may be engaged, but The Bachelor winner Shayne Lamas â€" who got a ring last night â€" isn't saving everything for future hubby Matt Grant.

She's appearing on the cover of Girls Gone Wild magazine. Classy.

In a sizzling six-page photo spread, Shayne Lamas, 22, reveals details of her time on the ABC reality show. She admits that she jumped on board The Bachelor in order to seek true fame and racy photo spreads love.

"It's what every girl wants," she says in the chat, characterizing her fiancé, Matt Grant, as being "very casual [and] respectful of women."

One day after winning The Bachelor, Shayne Lamas is cashing in!

Girls Gone Wild sleaze-bag publisher Joe Francis says Lamas' appeal is easy to sum up: "Shayne has a genuine ‘girl next door' quality," he said in a press release.

"And she also happens to be very hot."

Don't expect to see Shayne Lamas nude, though. Her Girls Gone Wild photo spread, while sizzling, features no naked pictures. Probably no o-faces either.

Chelsea had a good run, but as this Hollywood Gossip editor concluded in yesterday's Face-Off, Shayne Lamas was simply out of her league.

After 10 weeks, Matt Grant had narrowed the field down to two, and despite some tough moments with his family, it was an easy call - Shayne Lamas.

At the final rose ceremony, Chelsea was the first out of the limo, which is never a good sign. Matt told her she's amazing, and this experience would not be the same without her... BUT it's just not gonna work out long-term.

Upset at the rejection, Chelsea lashed out at Matt Grant and called Shayne "the fakest person" on The Bachelor. Matt wasn't pleased with this.

But he had more important business to attend to - like getting engaged! He tells Shayne Lamas that he came here for true love and found it with her. Matt then got down on one knee and shocked Shayne by proposing to her.

Matt Grant, Shayne Lamas

Shayne Lamas: Such a warm, caring, fame-seeking soul.

She happily answered yes. Lots of kissing and squealing followed. They said "I love you" approximately 74 times. Her hair was in her eyes. We cried a little.

Below are photos of some of the magic moments last night, with Matt Grant agonizing over his decision, told Chelsea the unexpected bad news, and then popped the question to our girl Shayne Lamas. Click to enlarge!

The season finale of The Bachelor is tonight, and Shayne Lamas looks poised to land the prize. That being Matt Grant. But will Chelsea stand in her way? That's the subject of today's Face-Off. Brace yourself as The Hollywood Gossip debates ...

WILL SHAYNE LAMAS WIN THE HEART OF THE BACHELOR, MATT GRANT?

YES by Free Britney

Face it, no one goes on The Bachelor for love.

It would a nice side effect, to be sure, if one found the love of one's life. But the women and the bachelors themselves go on the show because primarily, they are enamored with fame, at least to a certain extent.

If Matt Grant merely wanted to find love, he'd join a local London-based service, or go online to millionaireloves.com or one of the many other crappy dating sites that spams The Hollywood Gossip constantly.

NOTE: Get a new career, millionaireloves.com spammers.

No, he wanted to date hot women on TV, and Shayne Lamas fits the Bachelor bill better than anyone in the show's history - entertaining, reasonably hot, ethically questionable and shamelessly trying to be famous.

Shayne Lamas' listed profession is "actress." Now that the 22-year-old has her first taste of fame, she'll stop at nothing to remain in the spotlight.

She'll laugh at the right jokes, appear adventurous and fun, cry if things don't go well, go down on Matt in a movie theater, probably even murder her competition if she has to. Long story short, Chelsea has no shot.

Last night on The Bachelor, Matt Grant took all three of the remaining women to Barbados. At the end of their dates, Matt would send one home, leaving only two in the running to be his trophy ex-fiancee.

Matt first met up with Shayne Lamas and they took a spin on some jet skis. They also bounced around on a floating trampoline and took a swim in the ocean. Shayne showed off her splits and straddling skills. Really.

At dinner, he invited her to spend the night with him up in the suite. After thinking about it for a split second, Shayne Lamas said yes.

Next, Matt headed out on his date with Amanda - an exciting zip line ride through the jungle. At dinner, Amanda really puts her heart out on the line, so Matt Grant can see how much she cares about him.

She tells him that she can't picture life without him and Matt Grant hands her the fantasy suite card. She, too, eagerly says yes.

Finally, Matt Grant meets up with Chelsea and the two head out on a boat ride. She keeps her distance from him for some reason.

At dinner, he tells her this is starting to feel more like a friendship. Chelsea quickly tells him that she really does care for him. She accepts the fantasy suite card and shows up wearing nothing but a black nightie.

At the rose ceremony, Matt gave the first rose to Shayne Lamas and, in a bit of a shocker, the second to Chelsea. Fare thee well, Amanda.

Last night on The Bachelor, Matt Grant met the family of Shayne Lamas - as well as the families of her competition, Chelsea, Noelle, and Amanda.

Matt visited Shayne Lamas' family first and meets her parents separately, since they are divorced. Sadly, A.J. Lamas does not appear.

When she meets her quasi-famous dad, Lorenzo Lamas, he blurts out to Matt Grant that Shayne was just interested in getting on TV when she decided to go on The Bachelor. We're startled to hear this revelation, competely.

Shayne quickly tries to defend herself, saying that she is only there for him. It seems to be good enough for both Matt Grant and for her father Lorenzo, who appreciate what she has to say about herself and her feelings.

Lamas, Shayne

Would Shayne Lamas receive one of the final three roses on this night?

On his date with Chelsea, Matt explains to her family just how serious he is about finding love. After a nice, relaxing meal, Matt heads out - but not before Chelsea says she is falling for him and enjoys time with him.

With Noelle, the two go hiking and ride horses in Colorado. Very pretty. Noelle's family is approving of Matt, but ask tough questions, and Matt is forced to admit that he is falling in love with her - but also with more than one woman.

Finally, Matt Grant visits Amanda, who in a colossal prank, hired actors to play her parents. Her father asked uncomfortable questions as her mother tried to hit on him. When the gag was revealed, Matt was a good sport.

At the rose ceremony, Matt gave roses to Shayne Lamas, then to Amanda and lastly to Chelsea. Matt decided to eliminate Noelle, feeling that their connection came too late. She took the news well by Bachelor standards.

Picking up where we left off last week on The Bachelor, six girls remain and all are headed to meet Matt Grant in Sun Valley, Idaho for some fun in the snow.

Matt gets a horse-drawn sleigh to take Chelsea on a romantic ride, but she says she hates public displays of affection and holding hands. Lame.

She tried to show Matt Grant her romantic side, though, by inviting herself up to his suite, where the two shared a long, romantic kiss. Hot.

Matt took Marshana, Shayne Lamas, Robin, and Amanda for a day of skiing. Marshana was terrible skier and spent most of her time face down.

Later, Matt took some time with Shayne Lamas, who proved a very skilled skier, and stole some kisses, too. This girl's totally gonna win.

Robin interrupted and asked why she didn't get a one on one date. He tells her he felt that he already had a strong connection with her.

When Matt Grant took the girls to a hot tub in the snow, Amanda grabbed him and pulled him away for a few minutes, to steal some kisses.

On his date with Noelle, hearing about the serious car accident that Noelle was in and her take on life in general really made Matt fall for her.

When Marshana says she knows how Matt lives, Chelsea and Robin gang up on her. Chelsea says Marshana doesn't really want to be on the show.

The claws come out as everyone wants time with Matt Grant - and a rose.

Matt Grant was left with a tough decision in this rose ceremony, with the home town dates just one episode away, and two girls to send a-packin'.

He chose to give roses to Shayne Lamas, Noelle, Chelsea, and Amanda. Nice! Therefore, he has eliminated Robin and Marshana. We are down to four!

On last night's episode of The Bachelor, Kelly, Chelsea, Shayne, Ashlee, Noelle, and Robin receive the "first date box" from Matt Grant.

As a result, the girls take to the tennis court to take on Matt. Ashlee sings, Kelly flashes, and Shayne Lamas, never to be outdone, does handsprings.

Robin grabs Matt Grant's attention when she displays her knowledge for tea and British culture, and Shayne confronts her for not playing fair. Robin cries.

Chelsea leaves with the rose, though - snap.

Amanda finds out that she'll get a one on one date with Matt. The evening is '50s style, complete with wardrobe and a classic car and stuff.

The two head to a diner, where she gives Matt dancing lessons. He's a dreadful dancer but the two have a great time and she gets a rose.

Another night of playing sports and dating hot chicks for Matt Grant.

Marshana and Holly join Matt for a dramatic two-on-one date. In somewhat of a surprise move, he sends Holly home and gives Marshana the rose.

At the cocktail party, Matt Grant tells the women how serious he is about finding the woman he is going to spend the rest of his life with. Ooooh.

At the rose ceremony, Amanda, Chelsea, and Marshana are already safe. Our man Matt Grant will hand out three more roses and send two home.

He gives those roses to Shayne Lamas, Robin, and Noelle. That means Ashlee and Kelly (along with Holly) are outta here. It's terribly sad for them.
