Drum roll please. Last night, during a seriously dramatic episode, Gerry picked Theresa Nist over fan favorite “Glamma” Leslie Fhima, and people have been *losing* it since the show went live. Truth be told, Gerry and Theresa seem like a match made in heaven. Both of their families got along super well, and they have a similar romantic history, too—they both lost their longtime spouses and have a shared grief about that.
Of course, this is The Bachelor franchise we’re talking about, and it’s known for quick engagements and even quicker breakups after the final rose is handed out. So, are Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist still together? Here’s what to know so far...
Gerry proposed to Theresa.
Technically, the leads on The Bachelor actually don’t have to propose at the end of the season, but this one did.
Before proposing, Gerry also got his late wife's blessing. “When I looked towards the volcano, I was asking Toni if this was the right thing to do,” Gerry said, per People. “I’m saying a prayer, and my prayers go to her.”
And after talking through his whole thought process while standing with Theresa in her glittery purple gown, Gerry got down on one knee and handed her the golden rose and a ring.
“I got to the point with the questions I had asked myself about how did I get here? And is she the right girl?” Gerry told her. “And I came to the realization that you’re not the right person for me to live with. You’re the person that I can’t live without. I love you 1,000%.”
Of course, she said yes, and Jesse Palmer almost immediately offered them a trip to Italy, which the couple said they might use as a honeymoon after their nuptials.
Are they getting married?
Yes! And it'll be aired live on January 4, 2024. Mark your calendars, people! This is the first live Bachelor wedding in history.
"It wasn't our original timeline," Theresa said during an interview with People. "But to be presented with the wedding of our dreams? I mean... spectacular. Incredible. Like, wow."
Gerry added, "I look at it this way. You know, when you're in your twenties and you put something off for a year, it's a very small percentage of your life. In your seventies, if you put something off for a year, it could be 10 percent, so the clock ticks faster. And I'm 100% certain I found the right girl for me."
Theresa's no stranger to a quick wedding, though, so she's ready for the challenge. "My first wedding was put together in three days," she said.
What does her engagement ring look like?
Theresa wasn't posting a ton of current photos of herself on Instagram, which meant that there weren't any ring reveals until the finale.
Finally, after Gerry got down on one knee, Neil Lane, the go-to Bachelor Nation jeweler, posted some close-ups of the engagement ring, and it is truly gorgeous. The ring features a square diamond flanked by two emerald-cut stones, and a pavé band. You can check it out for yourself:
Her Instagram posts are very loving towards Gerry.
While neither one has posted since the finale aired, they've been pretty open about their admiration for each other throughout the whole season. Theresa has also posted about her time on the show several times, and her captions have always been very sweet and positive, which seems to suggest that she at least enjoyed filming The Golden Bachelor. And Gerry.
“The feeling of Gerry arriving in my hometown! About to bring him home to meet my family… so excited,” she captioned a shot in early November of the two of them embracing during the Hometowns episode.
In October, she also wrote that she was “grinning from ear to ear 😁,” while talking to Gerry.
I don't know about you, but seems like these two are definitely in love.
Are they still together?
As of right now, these two are very happily engaged, and planning an early January wedding, so I'd say things are going swimmingly.
Stay tuned! Women's Health will keep you updated on all things Gerry and Theresa in the coming months.
