Last night, on the season finale of The Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert gave out her final rose—to a nice Jewish boy from Long Island. Hebert chose J.P. Rosenbaum, a 34-year-old construction manager from the town of Roslyn, who arrived in Fiji by seaplane to propose to her (she said yes). The University of Pennsylvania dental student met the Rosenbaum family in an earlier episode, where she confided to his mother that she was “smitten” with him. Hebert apparently won the family’s approval despite a joke about the calories in his mom’s lasagna.

Originally a contestant on season 15 of The Bachelor, Hebert was eliminated in the 9th rose ceremony before being selected as this season’s Bachelorette. Mazel Tov to the happy couple—may you be the third couple in the show’s history to actually make it down the aisle.
