Her princess title will have to wait, but Jennifer Wilson got her prince on The Bachelor.
That’s right, Lorenzo Borghese somehow chose ditzy Jen over the far superior Sadie Murray on Monday’s two-hour finale.
“I came here for one reason and that was in search for love,” the 34-year-old Manhattanite and Italian noble family member told Jennifer as he informed her of his decision during the reality TV show’s final rose ceremony. “I didn’t want 25 women, I wanted one.”
“Oh my god!,” the giddy 24-year-old eighth grade teacher from Pembroke Pines, Fla., replied, as our staff members vowed to stick to Laguna Beach for our reality fix from now on.
However, Lorenzo didn’t propose, or even attempt to present his network-supplied engagement ring to Jennifer as a “promise ring.” No one needs to get married these days – just ask Brangelina. Instead, he presented the Florida teacher with an offer to leave the “Garden of Eden” and “take it on” with him in New York.
After meeting with both fathers, Lorenzo had his final one-on-one dates with Jennifer (below, left) and Sadie (below, right), setting the stage for the final ceremony in which each woman arrived separately learn of his decision. Sadie arrived first and, following some brief praise of her, Lorenzo cut right to his decision.
“In your wish list, you said ‘I want to be with a guy that can’t fathom to be with another woman’ … the truth is that there is another woman here and at this point I would rather be with her,” Lorenzo told the 23-year-old from San Diego. “I don’t know what else to say, Sadie.”
THG NOTE: He could have invited Britney Spears to accept his ring instead, but that would have been against the show’s rules.
Sadie, a classy, spunky, composed and virginal cutie, initially took the news well.
“I’m grateful for everything and thank you, really, thank you… I’m not good but I will be, I’m fine,” she said.
But as the conversation continued, Sadie began to get more emotional.
“I just don’t know why I did this… I feel so foolish… I thought it was real,” Sadie lamented.
