Spoiler alert: This article contains major spoilers for Season 1 of The Golden Bachelor.
After years in development hell, The Golden Bachelor is finally underway — and it's a certified hit. The reality dating series shows the world a different kind of love story, providing a few golden-aged hopeless romantics with a much-deserved second chance at love.
So, could any of these lovely ladies be 72-year-old leading man Gerry Turner's second perfect match? Only time will tell, but if you can't wait for new episodes, stick around because we have all the spoilers you need!
'Golden Bachelor' spoilers: Who are Gerry's final three women?
Unlike your typical Bachelor/Bachelorette seasons with four hometown dates, Gerry only has three hometown dates during his journey on The Golden Bachelor. On that note, Gerry's final three women are none other than Faith Martin, Theresa Nist, and Leslie Fhima.
In Episode 6, Gerry heads to New Jersey for his first hometown date, reuniting with 70-year-old securities professional Theresa Nist. He later joins 60-year-old radio host Faith Martin in Washington and meets her family. Last but certainly not least, Gerry arrives in Minnesota to meet up with 64-year-old fitness instructor Leslie Fhima.
Who are Gerry's final two on 'The Golden Bachelor'?
After all three hometown dates, Gerry decides to eliminate Faith from the series. With that said, his final two women are Theresa and Leslie. The widower and his final two fly to Costa Rica, where each woman has a Fantasy Suite date and meets Gerry's family.
Speaking of overnight dates, aka fantasy suites," Gerry told Entertainment Tonight that they would be much different than past seasons in the dating show franchise.
"I just think that a fantasy suite for someone of my age may look quite different," Gerry told the outlet. "The activities could be quite different than for someone in their 20s and 30s."
Nevertheless, he noted that the fantasy suites "really don't" make him nervous — his two daughters, Jenny and Angie, couldn't say the same. Gerry revealed, "They make my daughters a lot more nervous than me."
Who does Gerry pick on 'The Golden Bachelor'?
Alright, buckle up, folks! This is the moment you've all been waiting for. The final rose ceremony took place on Sept. 1, and guess what? Reality Steve finally spilled the tea on who stole Gerry's heart! Are you prepared for the juicy deets? Brace yourselves because, in the end, Gerry Turner picks Theresa Nist!
Despite initially rejecting the idea of marriage, Gerry gets down on one knee and pops the question — and Theresa happily accepts his proposal. So, there you have it: Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist are engaged!
In October 2023, Gerry spoke with Us Weekly and confidently stated that his late wife, Toni, would be "excited" about the "good conclusion" of his Golden Bachelor journey. Ugh — the tears are real!
