Bachelor in Paradise was quite the roller coaster ride this season, but it did end happily for Derek Peth and Taylor Nolan, who found love in a seemingly hopeless place.
If you didn’t know the couple are engaged, well, it was one of the worst kept secrets in TV history. (Sorry not sorry.) Peth popped the question during the August 30 taping of the Bachelor In Paradise after-show, airing this week.
Of course, everyone wants to see the engagement ring — and we don’t have to wait for Nolan to flaunt her new accessory on social media. People got all the details on the Neil Lane sparkler, a classic 2-carat ring featuring a round diamond with two accent diamonds on either side.
Lane told People,
I did not actually meet with Derek, so it was important for me to better understand him and his personality – and of course Taylor’s as well. What I gathered was that he was more traditional yet he also liked the idea of a romantic ring.
Derek was reportedly stumped when picking the ring, torn between the ultimate winner and a vintage rose gold ring with small diamond detail. However, the suitor who competed on JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette decided the platinum was more traditional.
He decided it best suited Taylor. And Derek really liked that it felt more traditional and classic, but still had a mid-century vibe. She loved it!
Congrats to the couple!
