We've waited patiently and finally, it's time to settle down and watch just who 26-year-old Bachelorette Brooke Blurton chooses as her life partner. 

Brooke has earned a place in our hearts, not just as a reality star looking for love, first on Nick Cummins' season of The Bachelor, and then trying again on Bachelor In Paradise, but also as an Indigenous and LGBTQI role model
