'The Bachelor' ends in the most Minnesota way ever

There are no words.

Spoiler alert: if you haven't watched the season finale of "The Bachelor" and you want to keep the ending a surprise, stop reading now. 

Here's what happened. 

Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed to Minnesota native Becca K., and then he stomped on her heart. 

Arie changed his mind about two weeks after promising to choose Becca every day, telling her that he couldn't stop thinking about Lauren – the runner-up whom he sent packing with a broken heart just minutes before he dropped to a knee to ask Becca to marry him. 

Sadly, it felt like we were watching a Vikings game, except it was worse because she had won the championship and THEN had it ripped away. 

How sick is that?

What's worse is that Becca gave the engagement ring – likely a $30,000+ rock – back to him. 

But that's not all. 

Just seconds before the Bachelor dumped her, Becca excitedly showed him her new wrist tattoo, which she got to commemorate their love. 

It's a hell of a lot easier to give a ring back than it is to remove a tattoo. 

And how dumb is Arie? After dumping Becca, he stood around staring at her like he was waiting to be consoled. It was pathetic, and he embarrassed himself further when he walked back in after leaving to ask Becca if she was OK. 

As the saying goes, there are no stupid questions, just stupid people. 

We're looking at you, Arie. 

"Brutal," Becca said while fighting back tears during the final 10 minutes of the live show. "I was ready to do it all," she said, later adding that she "cried for about four days straight." 

She hasn't talked to him or heard from him since, but that will change during Tuesday's bonus show, where they'll meet again.
