You may remember Elyse, now 27, as the Tampa-based personal trainer and fitness instructor with an amazing bod and an even better tan. Ben gave Elyse the boot during his season's fifth episode, but she is now doing better than ever. On April 13, Elyse posted pics of Doug proposing to her on the beach.
"Still can't believe it! #engaged #love," she captioned one photo. In another one, she appears stunned as Doug gets down on one knee. "Surprised!" she simply captions that one. And you can get an up-close view of the ring in the photo at right. "Ahhhh #ignoremymexicomani," she writes about the bling.
Elyse is just one of several of Ben's castoffs who are currently engaged. Kacie Boguskie got engaged in February 2014 and will be tying the knot next month, while Emily O'Brien got engaged last summer. We wish them all the best as they each plan for the big day!
