Bachelor Charlie O'Connell Finds Match

Actor CHARLIE O'CONNELL is hoping for a love match, after choosing 24-year-old nurse SARAH BRICE as his partner on the season finale of reality show THE BACHELOR.

O'Connell - who was criticised by fans on the show's message boards as being "dumb" and "a creep" - offered a diamond ring to his new sweetheart on Monday night (16MAY05), though he did not propose. Instead the gem is meant to be a promise ring.

As he gave the final rose to Brice, O'Connell said through tears, "Now it can finally be just you and me... I love you."

Despite the paltry record of successful relationships to come from the reality dating series, Brice says she is ready to move from Texas to Los Angeles to be with 30-year-old O'Connell.

Earlier during the live finale, Charlie rejected the other finalist, 25-year-old KRISILY KENNEDY. Instead of letting her down in front of the studio audience, which included her family, O'Connell broke the news privately in her dressing room. A camera crew was still on hand to capture the event on film.

O'Connell, younger brother of actor JERRY O'CONNELL, made his choice after sifting through 25 hopefuls.
