Ashley Hebert and J.P.
It may have looked like a perfect proposal on the finale of The Bachelorette, but the newly engaged couple admits that there's a moment viewers didn't see.
"I went through this whole long speech and I thought it went really well and when it was her turn to speak ... I don't know what came out [of her mouth]. It made no sense," J.P. tells TVGuide.com. "It was really adorable." Ashley adds, "I'll be sure nobody ever sees that!"

Leading up to the proposal Ashley not only had to endure her sister's disapproval of the man she loved, but also break another guy's heart. The Bachelorette host Chris Harrison defends Ben's angry reaction to the rejection and wonders — just as viewers did — how someone could not like J.P.
On this week's finale of The Bachelorette, Ashley handed out her final rose. It's hard to believe that in the last few weeks we've seen her fall for the villainous Bentley, be humiliated by a disingenuous roast, and see two men leave on their own accord. But it's all worth it, Ashley says, as she's found the man she wants to marry.
Spoiler Alert: The following reveals the outcome of The Bachelorette finale.
After traveling the world and narrowing down a pool of 25 men, Ashley has chosen the person she wants to marry.

It's always surprising when a man rejects the fantasy-suite card on The Bachelorette, but host Chris Harrison says Constantine was ready to "pull the cord" on his relationship with Ashley. TVGuide.com chatted with Harrison about the eleventh-hour exit, why he didn't feel bad about letting Ryan show up in Fiji, and how Ashley's family won't give a "glowing report" on J.P. Plus: Who steals the show at Sunday's upcoming "Men Tell All" (9/8c, ABC)?
Ashley arrives in Fiji, reflecting on her Bachelorette journey thus far. She says she definitely finds herself finding true love on the beautiful island. We look back at the past few weeks and how Ashley's relationships with Ben, J.P. and Constantine have grown.
Ben's date is up first, but wait,
While J.P. may seem like the front-runner on The Bachelorette, Chris Harrison says that bumps are ahead for him and Ashley. In this week's chat with Harrison, he dissects each of the dates, talks about Ames' upcoming stint on Bachelor Pad, and hints that next week one of the guys may not choose to forgo their individual room to stay with Ashley in the fantasy suite.
On this week's The Bachelorette, Ashley and her four remaining men head back to the U.S. for hometown dates. First up is Constantine, who introduces Ashley to his big fat Greek family in Atlanta. So he takes her to his restaurant which is, of course, Italian? The two make pizzas and eat — and share a kiss -- as the restaurant staff watches from afar.
On this week's episode of The Bachelorette, Ashley and the men go to Taiwan where she decides who will travel back to the States and introduce her to their families.
Constantine receives the first one-on-one date for the week and the two head to a village outside of Taipei. There they make a love wish with a lantern that they'll set free. Ashley loves how seriously he takes the activity. During the dinner portion of the date, Ashley tells Constantine that not only is he physically what she's attracted to, but that she loves that he holds back and is a family man. They end the night with a kiss and watch all the lanterns heading up to the sky.
