‘Bachelor In Paradise’ wrapped up its first season of trashy goodness on September 8, but half of the country couldn’t tune into the culmination of sex on the beach because Monday Night Football overtook the airwaves!
If you’re sitting at work today counting down the minutes until you can rush home to your DVR to finally watch the Bachelor In Paradise finale, you’re not alone. The east coast was shut out of the big episode — spoiler alert, a couple got engaged! — thanks to the Giant football flub (see what I did there?)! Keep reading to see the chaos that ensued on Twitter, amidst the Bachelor-induced freak-outs, plus find out who popped the question.
‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Finale: Who Got Engaged? — Spoiler Alert!
Did you find yourself sitting on the couch, rosé in hand, waiting for a miracle to grace your TV on Sept. 8? As the Lions defeated the Giants, Bachelor fans hopes and dreams were defeated when they came the sudden realization that it was just not happening. Until 1:30am.
Leave it to football to ruin the night. If you’re anything like me, the only time you want to be watching football is at a sports bar so that you can really just watch hunky men cheer on their team, but still, you’d rather watch — SPOILER ALERT! — Marcus propose to Lacy on the Bachelor In Paradise finale.
Thankfully, our wonderful News Editor and resident Bachelor guru, Emily Longeretta found a way to YOPO last night (thanks to live streaming — ahem, I don’t have Verizon Fios. Ugh, thanks, Time Warner) so she was able to fill y’all in. See recap here!
The rest of the world, unlike Emily, resorted to Twitter to express their frustration. Almost like when Michelle Money freaked out on Jesse for shabanging multiple girls in Mexico.

HollywoodLifers, were you able to watch Bachelor In Paradise or were you stuck watching football? More importantly, are you happy that Marcus and Lacy are engaged?
