'The Bachelor' Finale Recap: Will Joey Grazidei Be Happily Engaged to One of the Finalists?

In his season three-hour finale of the ABC show, the tennis player will have to make a final decision before handing out the final rose to either Daisy Kent or Kelsey Anderson.

AceShowbiz - Joey Grazidei's journey to find love has reached the end. In his "The Bachelor" season finale, airing on Monday, March 25, Joey would hand out his final rose to either Daisy Kent or Kelsey Anderson. Kicking off the three-hour episode, Joey recounted his start with both Kelsey and Daisy.

"I've been intrigued by Kelsey from night one," he admitted. Of Daisy, he said, "She had a hold on me from the beginning... Her smile hits differently every time I see her."

Later, Daisy was seen meeting Joey's family, including his parents, Nick and Kathy, and sisters Carly and Ellie. "I think my biggest fear is that they won't be able to see me completely for who I am and they won't understand why me and Joey are so good together. I really need today to go well," Daisy said in a confessional.

Daisy opened up about her health story. Ellie noted that Daisy and Joey seemed "like two people who are in love with each other." Ellie and Carly also reassured Daisy, who was scared to think about the future as there's another woman in the picture. "After meeting Joey's family, I'm feeling excited, nervous, anxious, happy, sad," Daisy concluded.

It was then time for Joey to introduce Kelsey to his family. "I do feel the weight of how significant this is, meeting his family," Kelsey said in a confessional. "It's a little intimidating. I do know how amazing Daisy is."

Kelsey shared about her family to the Grazideis, saying, "I lost my mom a couple years ago, and my mom meant so much to me. I know she would love Joey. He's got the best heart." Upon hearing the story, Kathy felt "the emotional connection between the two of them."

As for Carly, she wasn't entirely convinced that Kelsey was right for Joey because she appeared hesitant when it came to marrying Joey. Kelsey also told Joey's parents that even though she hoped Joey would choose her, she would be supportive if Joey ended up with Daisy because she knew how amazing Daisy is. In a confessional, Joey's mom Kathy said, "I think he's gonna have a challenge to try to figure out where his heart's leading him."

For the final date with Daisy, Joey took her to Tulum where they would have a "spiritual experience." Daisy, however, was frustrated because she couldn't tell Joey about her honest feelings. "I definitely want to tell him that I love him. That I love him and it hurts," she said. When a producer asked what about it "hurts," she said, "That he's not sure of me."

Daisy's feelings got worse when they shared their hopes as part of the ritual. Daisy said her desire was to "keep learning about" Joey. Meanwhile, Joey said, "My desire is for both of us to find true happiness, whether that's with each other or just in general."

Daisy responded in confessional, 'I feel like it might not be us because I'm used to not being chosen. That sucks."

Later, Joey and Kelsey chose to enjoy a spa for their final date. "When I'm with Kelsey, I'm goofy, I'm funny, I just have a really good time," Joey noted, "I let go a little bit more and don't take things so serious." As for Kelsey, she said, "I just feel like life with him could be so spectacular."

The two appeared to have fun during the date as they were seen giggling and laughing. Later that day, Kelsey told Joey that she's afraid of not being chosen but he told her not to be. "I don't want you feeling that way, I don't want you having doubt," he said.

Before heading to meet Joey for the Final Rose, Daisy visited Kelsey to talk about their feelings before finding out Joey's final choice. Dressed in a red gown, Daisy told Kelsey that while she knew she needed to be strong, she admitted that she felt like she's going to crumble. "Love shouldn't feel like it hurts this much. I know what I need to do," she added.

Kelsey revealed that she felt "a lot of validation" by the end of her final date with Joey. As for Daisy, she felt like something was "missing" on her last date. "I love him and I care about him, but I'm really, really hurting," she shared. "It shouldn't feel this way. ... I really think it's Kelsey, but I'm not just going to walk away right now because what if it's not?"

Daisy was the first one to arrive. Joey talked about their connection before Daisy cut him off. "I know that you came into my life for a reason. You showed me how important it is to know my worth," she said. "Falling in love with you has been so fun, and I do love you. But the thing is, you're not going to choose me."

"The last couple of days, I realized that you're not my person, and I know that you know I'm not your person. And as much as that hurts, I know you said you want the best for me, so I'm going to do what's best for me, and I'm going to go," she added, prompting both Daisy and Joey to cry. Joey told her, "You deserve nothing but the best, and I really wish I was able to give it to you."

Before she went, Joey offered to walk her out but Daisy told him, "I think it's something I should do on my own."

Following the emotional moment, Joey revealed that he's "100 percent" sure with his decision. When Kelsey arrived in a white dress, Joey told her, "I knew early on that there was something different about you, and I just wanted to learn more. There is nothing difficult about choosing you, and I can't wait another minute to tell you that I love you."

"There is something about you. You have this infectious energy that makes me smile. You're my light," he added. He later got down one knee and proposed to her, and Kelsey said yes through her tears. "I'm so happy. I don't know if I've ever been so happy in my life," she said.

Back to the studio, Joey then welcomed Daisy as they discussed the finale. "I'm so happy for you, and all I ever wanted was for you to be happy," Daisy said to Joey. "You two are two amazing people."

Of her decision, Daisy shared, "Walking away was really hard, but sometimes the hard thing is the best thing. It was the best thing for all of us."

The engaged couple then showed up at the studio, speaking for the first time after they were engaged. Kelsey then flaunted her gorgeous 4-carat diamond ring from Neil Lane.

Love was definitely in the air with Joey gushing over Kelsey, "She is a light. ... She gives energy fully, and I don't know how I'm going to have a boring day in my life with her." Kelsey, meanwhile, said, "I definitely feel [my mother's] presence. I definitely think that she's smiling down on us right now."

Later, Daisy returned to the stage. Despite speculations, Daisy revealed that she's not the next "The Bachelorette" star. "I'm leaving this whole experience happier than when I came in, and that's because every single woman in the house," she divulged.

She then reunited with her best friend Kelsey. "Daisy is beautiful and amazing, and that will never take away from me being beautiful and amazing. I think two things can be true at the same time," Kelsey raved about Daisy. "I think a lot of times people think that this is a competition but it's not."

To that, Daisy responded while giggling, "I can't wait to watch you guys get married and everything."

Host Jesse Palmer later announced the next leading woman for "The Bachellorette" and it was Jenn Tran.
