Fans of The Bachelor are eagerly awaiting tonight’s Season 19 finale when hunky Chris Soules will propose marriage to beautiful Whitney Bischoff or Becca Tilley with a double-halo-style diamond engagement ring.

Bischoff, a fertility nurse from Chicago, is the odds-on favorite to win the heart of Soules, a stylish farmer from Iowa. At stake is an east-west-set emerald-cut diamond ring adorned with smaller round diamonds around the halos and along the band, which is likely crafted in 18-karat white gold or platinum. Glamour’s Kim Fusaro estimated the weight of the center diamond at 1.5 carats.

ABC offered a sneak peek of the engagement ring in a preview aired on last Monday’s Women Tell All special. The preview seems to indicate that Soules — unlike his predecessor, Juan Pablo Galavis — does, indeed, pick a winner in the season’s final rose ceremony.

In Season 18’s controversial finale, Galavis stunned pediatric nurse Nikki Ferrell when he said, “I have a ring here in my pocket and I'm not going to use it. I'm not 100% sure I want to propose to you, but at the same time I'm 100% sure I don't want to let you go."

Tonight’s episode should prove to be a little less dramatic, and either Bischoff or Tilley will emerge with a ring. Whether the winner will ever walk down the aisle with The Bachelor is a harder question to answer.

After 10 years of ABC's romantic matchmaking (18 seasons of The Bachelor and 10 seasons of The Bachelorette) only one couple — Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici of The Bachelor Season 17 — has tied the knot.

More than 8.5 million viewers are expected to tune in to the three-hour finale.
