The Bachelor season finale is finally upon us and it's a three hour extravaganza of emotion, tropical dates, Sean without his shirt on (like ABC would miss their final chance at that, right?), and of course some crazy proposal drama!  Our resident "The Bachelor" expert, Andy will be with you for the full three hours giving you play-by-play of all things season finale. Our LIVE BLOG will be starting hot and heavy at 8pm ET, so make sure you come back for more excitement and discussion as Sean makes his choice for bride-to-be.  Will he chose Lindsay, the girl we've pegged as one of our top 5 since week 3, or will he chose Catherine, the below the radar girl who wasn't on the leader board until it mattered most here at CBR?  So, check out our LIVE BLOG  and open thread below! This also seems like a good time to remind you of our very own The Bachelor Drinking Game!! No, we aren't saying you have to drink anything alcoholic, but no matter if  you're drinking water, soda, energy drink, or your favorite adult beverage feel free to play along... It may make the finale easier to get through. Here are the rules:  - Take one drink when:       - Sean is shown shirtless      - Sean says "I've found my wife"      - Anytime anyone utters the word "Heartbroken"      - Tierra's name is mentioned by anyone on the cast      - the words "husband" or "wife" are mentioned      - Sean and a date kiss      - Chris Harrison appears in a scene - Slam until this stops:      - They show Tierra crying      - A girl is crying on screen      - Sean gets rejected at the proposal      - Sean's proposal speech  8:01pm ET: And we are off!! We get the "bombshell ending you won't want to miss" like we've heard about nine million, or 20 plus times between The Bachelor & The Bachelorette - Harrison is live from CA where we'll get a LIVE "After the Rose" following the show... Late breaking news too!!! This should be interesting! 8pm ET: Welcome to the LIVE BLOG... Who do you have winning tonight? We've got Lindsay - who was one of our top choices almost all season long. Feel free to leave comments and have fun with the drinking game and the show. Let's hear your picks! To see all our musing, hit refresh throughout the show and you'll see what we're thinking all night!
