The finale for The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart featured three couples headed for Nashville for the final performances. One of them is Bri Stauss and Chris Watson, who hit it off night one on the show and have been falling madly in love with each other ever since. But are they still together? Here’s what we know.
They’ve Been Interacting on Social Media
Since the show began back in March, Bri and Chris have been posting photos to Instagram of themselves on the show and interacting in the comments. After their first date, the one to Guitar Center in Hollywood, they jumped in on Guitar Center’s Instagram to call it the “best date ever.”
“Y’all continue to make the best memories! Best date ever. Thank you Guitar Center!” wrote Chris, with Bri chiming in with, “The best date ever, thank you sooo much.”
Plus, in a post right after filming wrapped, Bri wrote on Instagram, “Wow it’s already February of 2020 and I realized I haven’t posted this year yet. Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. My name is Bri, I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. I’m a singer, songwriter, and model. My three favorite things in this world are music, family, and horses. This has already been the greatest year of my life and I can’t wait to share so many things with you! Soon.”
Reality Steve also reported that during the finale taping, Bri and Chris said “I love you” to each other on stage in front of the celebrity judges and hundreds of audience members. We think this means signs are pointing to them still being together because they haven’t been shy about sharing their feelings.
In a moment with Bri before their final performance, Chris said to her, “Growing with you over these last couple weeks and really falling in love with somebody over such a short time — I just can’t wait to explore life with you.”
She echoed those sentiments, telling him that she really feels like the “next steps [in her life]” are supposed to be with him. She also said privately that her idea of a “best-case scenario” is that they get married, have a couple of kids, keep recording music together in their home studio and maybe even go on tour.
According to the Finale, They Are Still Together
After being crowned the winners, the two of them sat down to give each other the final roses of the season.
“Since day one when I gave you my rose, I love you more and more every single day,” said Bri, with Chris adding, “Bri, I’m crazy about you.”
The show then gave a small update on the happy couple. It showed them recording a song together in a studio, with the lyrics teasing, “I’m scared to death that you might be it, that this love is real, that the shoe might fit. You might just be my everything and beyond, beyond space and time and the afterlife, will you have my kids, will you be my wife, you might just be my everything and beyond.”
Then after that, a title card on the screen said, “Bri and Chris are still deeply in love today and are excited for the release of their debut album.”
Now, there’s no word on whether they are quarantining together. That would certainly be a big first test of a new relationship! We’ll just have to wait and see if they give us any updates on social media now that the show has finished airing.
The Bachelor franchise will hopefully return later this year with Clare Crawley’s season of Bachelorette.
