The 26-year-old software salesman revealed he had made a decisive choice after telling finalists Lauren Bushnell and Joelle ‘JoJo’ Fletcher on last week’s show that he loved them both.
Trainwreck star Amy, 34, took host Chris to task after Jubilee Sharpe, 24, opened up about her ‘complicated’ personality.

‘Ben was everything that I thought he was. You know, he didn’t see me and my complicated past as a huge obstacle,’ said Jubilee while sitting alone on the hot seat with Chris.
Jubilee earlier this season told Ben that her entire family had died and she was adopted as a girl from an orphanage in Haiti.
‘I know you can’t control how complicated you are,’ Chris told her during The Bachelor: Women Tell All special.

Chris later added: ‘You might be complicated, and I know you stir the pot sometimes, but I hope you realize you’re a pretty special woman, and I really appreciate you coming here and opening up the way you did.’
Amy appeared on the 11th season of The Bachelorette featuring Kaitlyn Bristowe and quickly rallied behind Jubilee on Twitter.
‘Team jubilee for life #Bachelor,’ she tweeted to her nearly 3.8 million followers.

She then explained herself in three tweets.
‘There is nothing wrong with “complicated” women Chris Harrison. You treated it like something she should fight. A women shouldn’t try to’
‘Be less complicated so as to hopefully attract a man. And she shouldn’t find value in herself just because a dude liked her. Come on bro
‘She is smart and strong and a sergeant in the military. She lost her entire family and you say she must fight off being complicated,’ Amy tweeted.

Jubilee also was targeted by the other women but fought back and denounced them for talking behind her back.

Jami Letain and Amber James said Jubilee had called herself ‘the real black girl’ – to which they’d taken offense.

‘I’m sorry,’ said Jubilee who called herself ‘a very controversial person’ while in the hot seat.
‘I’m hard to love…I never really thought somebody like me could win Ben,’ she lamented.
‘This situation [The Bachelor], breeds my insecurities,’ she sobbed as they viewed a montage of her most vulnerable moments.

Ben was the main attraction and he made it clear that his mind was made up.
‘I’m more in love than I’ve ever been and I would marry that woman tomorrow if I could,’ he gushed.
The dashing Denver resident attributed his ability to ‘love’ in a multifaceted way to ‘compartmentalising’ while on the show.

While Ben was unable to reveal the name of his paramour he was forced to answer to the 26 women he turned down.
The show was also an opportunity for the rejected ladies to rekindle former catfights and put a couple to rest.
Lace Morris, a habitual bawler and combatant, had left the show of her own accord.

The outspoken beautiful brunette laughed when she saw her melodramatic montage.
‘That wasn’t me,’ giggled the Colorado native.
‘I didn’t know how to act,’ she admitted, noting that she’d spoken to her mother ‘every day’ since the show in a bid to ‘change’.
Tough to watch: The brunette beauty watched her montage filled with crying fits and odd behaviour
In a creepy show of affection one man from the audience showed Lace that he’d had her face tattooed on his body.
‘Keep your distance…don’t actually touch her,’ host Chris warned the super fan, as he took a selfie with his idol.
Lace, a 25-year-old estate agent, then agreed to appear on the spin off show Bachelor In Paradise.

Of the 28 contestants newscaster Olivia Caridi was cast as the kooky villain from day one.
She cringed a little at her showreel of open-mouthed gawping, overconfident bloviating and blubbering.
‘I felt like he was the man of my dreams,’ she recalled of Ben.

Sweetheart of the show Amanda Stanton denounced Olivia for calling her a ‘teen mom’ and saying men should ‘run a mile’.
‘I’m so proud of being a mom,’ frowned the softly-spoken single mother.
Small business owner Jennifer Saviano also had an axe to grind against boastful Olivia.
Lovely ladies: The rejected women were highly critical of Olivia
‘We like to read books and ‘’talk smart things’’ too,’ she chastised, in a nod to Olivia’s poor use of grammar.
The blonde twins Haley and Emily Ferguson branded her ‘disrespectful’ but softened when she started crying.
‘To pick on my body, to make fun of my toes and my breath…this hurts,’ bawled Olivia, 23, who was bullied at school.

Meanwhile, it seemed like Ben could do no wrong. Chris Harrison said he was ‘on the Mount Rushmore’ of former Bachelors and Ben even managed to tell the twins apart.
Tears and shouting were offset with a blooper reel that revealed everything from suspicious bubbles in the hot tub to drinks spilled down Ben’s back. A former contestant also brought in her pet chicken.
