Jordan Mauger and Fleur Verhoeven’s romance was written in the stars! From the moment she graced the red carpet in The Bachelor New Zealand’s premiere, the lovable intrepid adventurer had The Bachelor hooked.
So it comes as little surprise that in tonight’s nail-biting finale, it’s 26-year-old Fleur who walks away with Jordan’s all-important final red rose.
Staying true to his cheeky personality, Jordan told Fleur he didn't have the coveted flower she was after, but he did offer the blonde beauty the next best thing ... a shiny silver sparkler.
"He was really mean in the beginning," recalls Fleur. "I knew I was the one when he pulled out that ring, but I didn't know up until then."
Adding, "This has gone beyond everything I ever dreamed of. It's made me extremely happy - it's been one helluva ride."
After ten weeks of extraordinary dates, steamy kisses and sleepovers, the hot new duo can finally go public with their relationship. But more importantly, Fleur and Jordan can actually hang out! Until tonight’s closing episode, the duo were forced to stay apart as not to spoil the show’s big secret.
“We haven't been able to spend time together,” Jordan has said. “There's been a lot of correspondence between messages and phone calls. I'm really looking forward to spending time with the winner."
Says Fleur, "I've been waiting so long for this day, I can't wait to just hang out with and be normal.
"It's been tough. We've been talking and texting, and trying to call each other daily."

Jordan and Fleur’s happiness, however, comes at a cost, Nazanin Khanjani’s broken heart.
Fighting back tears at her public dumping, Naz said, "I will cherish every moment of this whole thing.
"Fleur is a very beautiful girl, you'll be very happy with her."
