FANS have been left shocked after finding out who Gerry Turner chooses to be his wife.
As Gerry’s season of the first-ever Golden Bachelor comes to a close, the season finale is set to air on November 30.
During last week’s episode, fans got to see a more intimate side of Gerry and asked the real questions to his final two women: Theresa Nist, 70, and Leslie Fhima, 64.
The TV personality spent time with each of his final candidates and spent a night with them alone in the fantasy suites.
Next week, Theresa and Leslie meet Gerry’s family.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
However, one Bachelor fan known as Reality Steve leaked the winner – and fans had their jaws on the floor.
In posts published on social media, Reality Steve revealed that Gerry proposed to Theresa.
MORE ABOUT THERESA
Theresa is from Shrewsbury, New Jersey, per her Golden Bachelor biography, and has multiple children and grandchildren.
Her bio states: “Theresa is a gorgeous catch with a huge heart. She is very close with her children and grandchildren and loves nothing more than seeing them all thrive.
“Theresa describes herself as optimistic, encouraging, and ready to love again after loss. She hopes to meet a partner who will be her best friend in this next chapter of life and will appreciate all the little moments with her.
“When she’s not spending time with her family, Theresa enjoys playing board games, gardening, reading romance novels, and hula hooping. Theresa is here for the real deal, and fingers crossed it’s all fireworks when she meets the Golden Bachelor!”
Theresa also loves singing while alone in her car and is a fan of “both soft and hard” 1970s rock music.
She was married to William Nist for 42 years before his death in 2014, and the pair shared a son named Tommy and a daughter named Jen, per Us Weekly.
When fans got ahold of the news, they were quick to share their opinions.
“Sorry, but I never liked her. There were many better choices. Leslie and Faith,” one wrote on Instagram.
Another wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: “The way my jaw just dropped.”
A fourth thought of how alleged runner-up Leslie felt: “Poor Leslie. It’s not right all of the things that he said to her, I know that she must have been heartbroken.”
A fifth wrote: “From the first one-on-one I thought it would be Theresa, but I was hoping it would be Leslie. It seems like she’s really looking for her forever person. Maybe she can be the Golden Bachelorette!”
“Well, can’t say I’m not disappointed (loved Leslie) but Theresa is a lovely, accomplished woman, so I hope they will be very happy together,” a fourth commented.
Another viewer slammed production: “I hate the way the Bachelor edits. I want to see the love story play out, not be thrown off intentionally by the edit.
It makes it way less special bc we don’t see the actual story. I get it, they think everyone wants drama, but I think they overdo it A LOT.”
