The Bachelorfinale and After the Final Rose聽special certainly made for a few hours of dramatic television. And while Arie Luyendyk Jr.鈥檚 decision to film his breakup with Becca Kufrin so he could pursue his runner-up, Lauren Burnham, was a total cringe-fest, the situation was redeemed not only by the show鈥檚 decision to make Kufrin the next Bachelorette, but by the power of female friendship we witnessed in season 22鈥檚 final moments.

When Chris Harrison made the not-so-surprising announcement that Kufrin would indeed lead The Bachelorette season 14, the studio audience went wild. Included in the crowd, of course, were some of Kufrin鈥檚 fellow season 22 contestants: Bekah M., Seinne, Tia, Kendall, and Caroline, who were all spontaneously brought up on stage to celebrate with their girl. After they hugged and cheered some more, all six of the girls squeezed onto the tiny loveseat together.

鈥淪he honestly is just the best human,鈥 Tia said to Harrison. She and the rest of the girls were visibly emotional as they praised their friend鈥檚 selflessness and good heart. Kufrin called the posse her 鈥渟oul friends,鈥 and then quietly dropped the best line of not only the finale, but maybe the entire season.

鈥淪ee?鈥 she said, as she sat on Caroline and Kendall鈥檚 laps, squeezing Tia and Sienne鈥檚 hands. 鈥淚 found love here.鈥

All of the girls gushed over their friendship on social media, with Bekah M. sending Kufrin off into Bachelorette land with a heartfelt note. 鈥淏ecca, I鈥檝e never met someone like you,鈥 she wrote. 鈥淵ou are truly wonderful. You deserve this journey more than anyone I know. That being said, KNOCK EM DEAD THIS SEASON, SWEETIE!!!鈥 Something tells us that won鈥檛 be a problem.
