Leslie Fhima revealed on the Golden Bachelor finale that she spent 60k on a dress. Fans have a devastating theory of what happened to it. Keep reading for all the details.
Leslie Fhima Left Heartbroken On Golden Bachelor Finale
Leslie Fhima was one of the frontrunners on Season 1 of the Golden Bachelor from the start. She exited the limo donning an old lady dress and grey wig and pushing a walker. However, she quickly threw all three aside to reveal a little black dress that showed off her figure.
Gerry Turner was infatuated with the 64-year-old fitness guru immediately and kept giving her rose after rose. But her luck ran out on the November 27th finale when he gave his last rose to Theresa Nist instead.
Accuses Gerry Turner Of Lying
Bachelor Nation fans praised Leslie for her realistic yet tearful reaction to Gerry Turner breaking up with her. At one point, she tersely told him that she could “think whatever the f**k” she wanted about why he broke up with her.
She also accused the 72-year-old widow of being a liar. “So everything you told me the other night was a lie. A complete and utter lie,” she said, alluding to their overnight date.
In fact, Turner later said that his overnight date with Theresa Nist is when he decided she, not Leslie, was the right one for him.

During the After the Final Rose special, Leslie refused to accept his apology for breaking her heart, though she understood his reasoning.
She also dropped the shocking news that she’d bought a 60k dress for the final rose ceremony, thinking he was planning to propose to her.
Devastating Theory About Leslie’s 60k Dress
“The only good thing is now I don’t have to walk down in that $60,000 dress and diamond earrings and get on that platform and be completely embarrassed,” Leslie said (quote via Us Weekly.)
So what happened to the pricey dress? Gerry Turner broke up with Lelise in her hotel room, and she never made it to the final rose platform.
Entertainment Weekly writer Kristen Baldwin shared a theory on Twitter that is devastating but not entirely surprising.
The season finale promo shows Leslie Fhima in a strapless blue dress and Theresa Nist in a sparkly silver dress. Viewers saw Theresa and her dress on the platform when Gerry Turner proposed, but Leslie’s blue dress never made an appearance during the finale.
Baldwin’s theory is that the strapless blue dress is the 60k dress, and producers had Leslie Fhima put it on to film her walking around in it.
Wait, so the finale promo showed Leslie in a blue dress… presumably the one she going to wear on proposal day? So… they just had her put it on and walk around pensively sometime before proposal day? 😂#TheGoldenBachelor pic.twitter.com/z8XqTxbPNY

Could it be true? Possibly but many replies pointed out that the strapless dress didn’t look like it would cost 60k.
