    ‘The Bachelorette’ finale attracts audiences

    Twenty-five bachelors were working their angles as hard as they
    possibly could to win the heart of bacherolette Trista Rehn. Rehn,
    no longer single because Vail, Colo., fire fighter and part- time
    poet captured her heart and asked for her hand in engagement on the
    season finale on Feb. 19.
    The ABC reality show aired for six longs weeks as viewers
    watched patiently to find out who would no longer be single. This
    is the first time for “The Bachelorette” which resembles the former
    reality show “The Bachelor.”
    Most reality series featured on dating usually have the format
    of girls competing for guys. But Rehn, formerly a contestant on
    “The Bachelor,” had the chance to pick from an array of men who
    would do just about anything it took to win her heart, but from the
    bunch, Rehn made her decision, and America watched as the couple
    were united.
    From the beginning, warm-hearted Ryan Sutter stood out from the
    other 24 bachelors. Was it his cute smile, his sweet poetry, or his
    gentle touch that capture Rehn’s heart? Since the show quit airing
    the two lovebirds seem to still be in lover’s paradise.
    “They really looked in love when the two appeared on ‘Good
    Morning America’ and ‘The Jimmy Kimmel Show.’ The two held hands
    during the most part and you could see the connection in their
    eyes. I am so happy for them,” MSU student Sara Beth Stockton
    said.
    On Rehn’s trip to Sutter’s parents home in Vail, Rehn described
    herself to them as a warm weather girl. This made viewers wonder if
    in the outcome of the show she would end up with charming
    Stutter?
    Snuggling atop of Eagles Nest and luxuriating in The Lodge, a
    premier suite at the bottom of Vail mountain, you could tell it was
    hard for Rehn to resist Sutter’s true compassion and love for her.
    Though, Rehn never contributed back her feelings to Sutter at the
    time because she did not want to get his hopes up.
    One date, the two went to Sea World and swam with dolphins and
    goofed off with one another. Sparks flew, and the millions of
    American’s watching could infer she was beginning to fall for him
    the minute he handed her the stuffed Shamu whale. She seemed to
    have lit up like a little girl in a candy store every time
    As a commemorative of the show, now in Vail, The Lodge is
    offering a Ryan Romance Package. The package rates start at $399
    and includes: two nights in a luxury suite, a romantic dinner at
    their restaurant, “The Wildflower” complimentary drinks, chocolate
    covered strawberries and a copy of one of Sutter’s poems.
    A note of consideration, Sutter is not included in the package
    and one should refrain from pulling the fire alarm.
    “Ryan was my favorite from the beginning and I kept my fingers
    crossed hoping he would win. I watched it every Wednesday night
    with four of my friends and when he won we all jumped in amazement
    and excitement that he did win,” MSU student Amanda Reily said.
    Anticipation grew as as viewers waited for Rehn’s final
    decision. The final episode was dragged out for two hours to make
    the viewer wait in uttered anticipation. Rehn chose to give her
    last rose to Sutter. Her decision was made, and there is no turning
    back for Rehn. Viewers on the Web page seemed to be pleased.
    “I do not see how she decided from the two guys, it would be
    hard to pick between the two because they were total opposites.
    Personally, I liked both of them because of their different
    distinctions one had what the other didn’t,” Senior Lyndsey Newcomb
    said. “Put them both together, and they would be a perfect package.
    As far as her decision, as long as she is happy I am thrilled for
    her.”
