Rachel and Tino got engaged — but broke up after it was revealed that Tino cheated.

During the finale episode, Rachel confronted Tino for cheating on her just days after the show premiered.

"I'm sorry about this because I was haunted by this," Tino told Rachel on the show. "It was a one-time mistake and I realized immediately that I needed to be with you."

However, Rachel didn't believe Tino was truly remorseful and ended things.

"I'll take you at our lowest, over anyone else at our highest. I just want you," Tino added before Rachel simply replied, "I'm done."

Tino and Rachel reunited on the After the Final Rose stage, but things did not go any better, and the couple agreed to disagree about the cause of their split.

It was then that host Jesse Palmer revealed that someone was here to see Rachel.

So, who does Rachel end up with?

Surprise! Aven Jones, who was eliminated just before the finale, returned to win Rachel back.

"This is tough, you don't deserve any of this," Aven told a clearly surprised Rachel. "I was wondering if you would like to get out here and catch up?"

Rachel did not hesitate, and told Aven, "I would like nothing more." The couple walked off stage hand-in-hand, prompting the audience to erupt in cheers while Tino remained awkwardly onstage.

While only time will tell if Aven and Rachel do make it official, Bachelor fans are rooting for the couple.

"I SCREAMED WHEN AVEN CAME ON MY SCREEN I KNEW HE AND RACHEL ARE SOULMATES," one fan enthusiastically tweeted before another added, "I always liked Aven better anyway so good luck to Rachel and Aven."

A third chimed in, "I knew she should have picked Aven. Remember that embarrassment forever Tino! Hope that "kiss" was worth it! You go Rachel! Happiness is right in front of you and his name is AVEN!!!"

We are rooting for you Rachel!
