He says: "I wanted so badly for [the relationship] to work out, and it was so close I could almost touch it. But I needed to walk away. She deserved to be in love with someone who was equally in love with her."

He left her a weeping pile of emotion on an Antigua pier and left producers and viewers alike wondering if the show would go on.

"The first thing I said when I walked out after [my conversation with] Brooks was, 'We might be done.' We were in the home stretch trying to set up a happy ending and magic proposal. This was a curveball," host Chris Harrison said during a press call Thursday.
