After spending a decade on The View, Elisabeth Hasselbeck marked her final appearance on the ABC daytime talk show with an emotional goodbye.

On Wednesday, Hasselbeck, 36, walked arm-in-arm with Barbara Walters before taking a seat at the table for what would be her last time.

"The past 10 years have been nothing short of extraordinary," Hasselbeck said after thanking the show’s producer Bill Geddie and co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar – who announced earlier this year that she'll be exiting the show – Sherri Shepherd and Walters.

"I did some math last night, and I think I’ve have had over 3,000 days working by your side," she told Walters. "I can’t ask for a better leader or mentor. You are the best that there is."

"We love Elisabeth," said Walters, who also said that the others appreciate her political differences, too.
