The finale of season 6 sees Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty taking their relationship to the next level, making them the first same sex engaged couple in the show's history.

AceShowbiz - Season 6 of "Bachelor in Paradise" ended on September 17, featuring an emotional and historical moment. The finale saw Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty taking their relationship to the next level as Demi proposed to her girlfriend at the final rose ceremony, making them the first same sex engaged couple in the show's history.

Following the fantasy suite, Demi presented Kristian a gorgeous diamond ring from Neil Lane and asked her to spend the rest of her life with her. "I've struggled and you were always there for me regardless of how much I didn't deserve it," Demi told Kristian. "I never knew someone could be so patient."

"There are a lot of things that came between us -- mostly myself and my own struggles. Like you said, I came here to find myself, but I found myself in you," she continued saying. "I love you so much. I am in love with you. I didn't even think it was possible to feel this way about someone."

Kristian unsurprisingly accepted Demi's proposal. "We're working on it," Demi said after Kristian insisted she get an engagement ring too.

Before coming to "Bachelor in Paradise", Demi and Kristian were casually dating. However, she wanted to get clarity about what she really wanted so decided to join "The Bachelor" spin-off on which she dated Derek Peth. She eventually realized that her heart was for Kristian and she then dumped Derek for her.

Throughout the season, Demi was seen in a huge dilemma because she hadn't been very open about her sexuality before this and she was worried about what would people say about it. She also got jealous since Kristian was a very affectionate person while she wasn't. It made her think whether or not she was able to give Kristian what she needed in a relationship.
