‘The Golden Bachelor’ spoilers: Who does Gerry Turner end up picking as his winner? Is ‘The Golden Bachelor’ star engaged? (SPOILERS)


The Golden Bachelor spoilers revealing the ending of Gerry Turner’s season have finally emerged — including who Gerry picked as his winner and if The Golden Bachelor star proposed marriage and got engaged to the woman he ended up with at the Final Rose Ceremony.

[The Golden Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report will spoil Gerry Turner’s winner and final pick for you and if the couple got engaged at the end of The Golden Bachelor.]

The Golden Bachelor finale is set to air as a two-hour episode, including the live After the Final Rose segment, on Thursday, November 30 on ABC.


Gerry will be shown deciding between Leslie Fhima, a 64-year-old fitness instructor from Minneapolis, MN, and Theresa Nist, a 69-year-old financial services professional from Shrewsbury, NJ, both of whom he had fallen in love with during the show.

But Gerry admitted he wasn’t conflicted after Fantasy Suites and the decision wasn’t an agonizing one during a recent appearance on the “Life is Short with Justin Long” podcast.

“All of the decisions that I made throughout those Rose Ceremonies, those were all hard. I’m not going to lie, they were very difficult — not just emotionally but also from an intellectual perspective,” Gerry shared with actor Justin Long.

“But the very last choice was an easy choice.”

Gerry explained how his conversations “without witnesses” in the Fantasy Suites with Leslie and Theresa were very “revealing” and entirely different from their on-camera conversations.

“You kind of hold some potential red flags in your back pocket until you can actually discuss them, because it would be totally inappropriate for some of it to be on TV,” Gerry said.

“But once you get into the Fantasy Suites and you have those conversations and you get those answers, then you go, ‘Oh, oh my god. I know. Here it is. This is easy.'”

Gerry said he’s thankful to have found his person through The Golden Bachelor process because filming had required quite the sacrifice from the entire cast.

“The only thing I was worried about was going through the whole process, having all the sacrifices made, losing all that sleep, and not coming to an end that I was happy with,” Gerry explained.

“You pay all those dues, and so you want to get your payday at the end. And I did!”

And according to Gerry, he has no regrets from his time on The Golden Bachelor.

“I enjoy how it ends,” Gerry told actor Justin Long. “I’m completely comfortable with the way it ended. I have no second guesses. It’s perfect!”


Gerry previously told TV Insider that getting engaged for the second time in his life was “a very realistic possibility” going into The Golden Bachelor.

“The clock ticks a lot faster than when you’re 20,” Gerry said. “If I’m going to enjoy the rest of my life, I don’t want to waste time. I want to find my girl and move on.”

The Golden Bachelor finale previews have shown Gerry looking at an engagement ring and voicing how he’s going to put “1,000 percent” into his post-show relationship or “nothing” at all.

“I think this will be the most emotional AFR that the franchise has ever seen. I really believe it,” The Golden Bachelor host Jesse Palmer teased of what’s to come in an interview with Us Weekly.

Jesse also added how Gerry’s emotional breakdown after his breakup with either Leslie or Theresa was “about as intense, as real and as raw as it gets.”

Gerry even laments in a preview of the finale, “I think I’ve made a mistake.”

Gerry cries and explains in the footage, “The only time I’ve ever felt worse in my whole life is when my wife [Toni] passed away, and this is a g-dd-mn close second. If I knew how much pain I was going to cause someone, I never would’ve taken the first step in this journey.”

So did Gerry walk away with the woman of his dreams, and possibly engaged? And is he still together with his The Golden Bachelor winner?

Spoilers for Gerry’s The Golden Bachelor season began to leak out all the way back in August.

At the time, Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone took to Twitter and revealed Gerry’s Final 3 women and Final 2 bachelorettes.

Carbone tweeted in late August that Faith Martin had finished in third place and that Gerry’s Final 2 women on The Golden Bachelor were Leslie and Theresa.

Carbone, however, initially had no idea who won Gerry’s final rose, and he didn’t have anything new to report for months.

“A lot of you have been asking where is your Golden Bachelor finale spoiler,” Carbone said during the October 31 episode of his “Reality Steve Daily” podcast.

“I do not have it yet, and I can tell you over the last two months since I gave you the Final 2… I just haven’t been able to find out who he chose.”


According to Carbone, he had actually heard conflicting claims about who Gerry ended up picking as his The Golden Bachelor winner.

“I can tell you this, since filming ended I have heard both of them,” he explained on his podcast.

“So clearly he didn’t choose two people. But people have said, ‘Oh, I heard this, I heard he picked Leslie,’ and ‘Oh, I heard he picked Theresa.’ So you know, I don’t have it yet.”

Carbone also admitted that there was a chance he may not find out Gerry’s winning bachelorette until The Golden Bachelor finale airs November 30 on ABC.

“I don’t know if I will [learn the winner] before the finale,” he acknowledged. “Hopefully I will. But that’s where I’m at and what I’ve heard with that.”

However, Carbone finally received the information he needed to confirm Gerry’s winning bachelorette in late November.

Carbone took to Instagram and Twitter — which is now called X — on Tuesday, November 21 to reveal the spoiler everyone has been waiting for.

“Golden Bachelor Finale Spoiler: It’s taken a while, but I finally have been able to find out who Gerry chose. Gerry is engaged to Theresa Nist,” Carbone wrote on his social media accounts.

When ABC released the biographical details of all of the women competing on Gerry’s season before it debuted, it had teased that Theresa is ”a gorgeous catch who has a huge heart,” adding how she’s very close with her children and grandchildren.

Theresa describes herself as optimistic, encouraging, and ready to love again after loss. Going into The Golden Bachelor, she hoped to meet her best friend, someone who would appreciate the little things in life with her.

Theresa also enjoys playing board games, gardening, reading romance novels, and hula hooping.

Leslie is a former professional figure skater who loves to dance and is passionate about helping others live their best lives. She also enjoys spending time with her Aussiedoodle, Billie.

Leslie, a mom of three kids and grandmother of three, has run 10 marathons in her life, and she’s looking for a running buddy as well as “a real man” who will enhance her life.

Gerry insisted he was ready to find “The One” after losing his high school sweetheart and late wife, Toni, to complications from a bacterial infection in 2017.

The pair had been married for 43 years and welcomed two daughters, Angie and Jenny, together. Gerry also has two granddaughters, Charlee and Payton, and lives on a beautiful lake in Indiana.
