The penultimate episode of The Bachelorette featured the final three. After an episode of trying to decide who would be best to take through to the final, Angie chose Carlin and Timm.

I still feel like she’s my dream girl. I feel heartbroken.”
As the limo exited the driveway, Angie sobbed: “That was the wrong decision. It felt awful.”
