Charity Lawson, the leading lady of The Bachelorette Season 20, found her happily ever after in an unexpected twist-filled finale.

The finale began with a shocking revelation: Lawson broke up with contestant Xavier Bonner. Charity took this step after Xavier revealed that he had been unfaithful in the past. The breakup left the ending wide open, with Charity deciding to call back a previously eliminated contestant, Aaron Bryant.

With this, Lawson’s final rose ceremony had three contenders: Aaron Bryant, Dotun Olubeko, and Joey Graziadei. Bryant’s time in the finale was short-lived, as Lawson skipped him during the final two rose ceremony. However, Bryant was not overtly concerned and revealed that he will be a part of the upcoming Bachelor in Paradise Season 9.
