NEW YORK (AP) -- Brooke got a broken heart but Helene got engaged in the final showdown of the hit romance-reality series "The Bachelor."
Dropping to one knee, Aaron Buerge put the ring on Helene Eksterowicz's finger in the ABC show's closing moments Wednesday.
"Will you marry me?" he asked.
"Yes, I will," she replied. "Without a doubt."
"I'm really looking forward to sharing my life with you," said Buerge, a 28-year-old banker from Springfield, Mo.
The proposal on the two-hour finale concluded Buerge's eight-episode odyssey test-driving would-be partners while the audience eagerly looked on.
