CU: I was really attracted to her presence and how she makes me feel. And what she gets out of me. There’s a level of comfort there that you can only wish and hope for. That’s what I found.
Glamour: By the way, what happened to Kirpa's chin? Much like Elyse's earrings, she didn't have a bandage on her chin at one moment, and the next she did.
CU: She was having a producer take a picture for Instagram, and she slipped on a rock and busted her chin open. She’s so funny; she said, "Thailand’s fucked me up!" [Laughs.] It was so funny in the deleted scene.
Glamour: The finale will air over two nights on March 11 and 12, so what can you tell us about these next few weeks?
CU: As far as the finale, when you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen. I’m interested to see what people think. I really am.
Glamour: What on earth does that mean? [Laughs.] I feel like we’ve seen it all.
CU: You’re in for a good one. [Actually], you’re in for a great one. Dare I say it be the most dramatic finale of all time….
Glamour: So, since everything will be out in the open next month, what are you most excited about in regard to people knowing what happens?
CU: I’m most excited about going to a restaurant and eating a normal dinner. I mean…
Glamour: With another person? Otherwise why can’t you do that now?
CU: I mean, I don’t really go out now because I like to keep my privacy. I’m not trying to be rude, but while the show is airing, I just don’t want to be questioned, so I stay at home right now. I can’t wait to go back out.
Glamour: But people are still going to mob you and have questions once the show is over. That won’t stop.
CU: Correct. But at least at that point it doesn’t make me look like a bad guy. I just don’t like saying no to people [when they come up to me with questions], but they respect it, because they know I don’t want to spoil the show.
Glamour: Finally, we’ve seen plenty of past Bachelors or Bachelorettes say they’re either engaged or they’ve fallen in love while the show is still airing, but you have not said that.
Glamour: Was that something that you or ABC decided not to say?
CU: I wanted it that way. I think, for me, especially for how everything ends and goes down, it’s important that the audience goes on this roller coaster with me. There were a lot of ups and downs throughout all of this, but especially toward the end. I think keeping that as raw and true and organic and vulnerable to everybody is really important.
