There weren't 29 million people watching this proposal – which was just fine by Helene Eksterowicz.
The Bachelor alum, 37, to whom Aaron Buerge popped the question during the show's second season finale, only to split five weeks later, is engaged once again.
The lucky man? Andrew Goodman, a senior technology consultant for IBM whom Eksterowicz has been dating for a year and a half.
"We are very happy about planning our future together," the middle school psychologist tells PEOPLE.
Goodman proposed during a birthday trip to the Poconos last weekend, catching Eksterowicz off-guard.
