The show’s final episode aired Thursday and brought back the love interest of “The Bachelor” cast member and Bachelor franchise veteran Kristin Bennett.
But it was not the happy ending that fans had hoped for.
Bennett’s character, the actress who plays Kristin on the series, was forced to go on a date with the character of Bachelor franchise stalwart Brandon Routh in a twist that many expected would be the ending to the series.
Fans will be pleased to hear that the show’s producers and cast have already reached a deal with the couple.
While it’s been reported that they had a falling out, the producers have said that they were not involved in the decision to cancel the season.
“The cast and producers of ‘The Bachelorette’ are happy to announce that Brandon Roulouth and Kristin are currently in a loving, committed relationship,” the show said in a statement to EW.
“Brandon is a wonderful husband and father who is excited to be in a relationship with his new wife and has given up his day job to devote all of his time and energy to their children.”
It was unclear how Bennett and Routh, who is now engaged to the reality star, were going to end up together or if they would remain together.
Bennett was expected to be back on the show as a contestant in the season finale, but she was not present.
Fans also were left to speculate if Bennett and her character, who was known for her sexy style and flamboyant behavior on the set, were actually dating.
Bennett is a former contestant on “The Bitch I’m Madonna” and appeared on the TV series “Madonna in the Studio” and “Marry Me.”
She was also on “Teen Mom” and had appeared in the reality series “Love Me Right.”
Bennett and the show are known for their flamboys and bikinis.
“Gossip Girls” will be returning to ABC on Jan. 17.
