When Reid Rosenthal Proposed to Bachelorette Jillian Harris — Flashback Video
Were you there? Did you squee like a tween when Reid Rosenthal came back to The Bachelorette Season 5 to propose to Jillian Harris? Did you think it was going to happen for them?
The fan favorite had been dumped in the episode before the finale — because he was so unsure, he couldn't commit and he couldn't tell her how he felt. But he came back for the finale, after Jilly had already dumped runner-up Kiptyn Locke. She was expecting Ed Swiderski’s limo and instead a random red van showed up with Reid. He came back to tell Jillian he was "an idiot" for not telling her he loved her. He proposed. She was confused. She let him go. She went with Ed and his green shorts. We went with Reid. We're still with Reid, even though he's now with a former Miss USA.
Watch the bittersweet proposal all over again. In our hearts, she said yes.
