"He's a good person, I don't think he's a monster and purposely did this to hurt me and make me feel this way. But it's just the result of his actions," Kufrin told People. "I don't think he did it maliciously to break my heart."

ABC had said the finale would "rock " 'Bachelor Nation' to its core," and they were right.

"This is my journey, and this is about finding a lasting love and that road is not always the easiest," he said. "It's all about the ending and finding that person for yourself and that's the important part. I'm very happy."
