SIX weeks ago, eliminated contestants Alana and Belle predicted Rochelle and Anna would be the last two ladies standing beside Bachelor Tim Robards - and they were right.

In tonight's final episode, the first Australian Bachelor will hand out his final rose - but did he find love?
"You'll have to wait and see," he said with a laugh.

At the beginning of the series, Tim met 25 beautiful women from around Australia, in his quest to find love.

While he's struggled to fully open up to the final two women, Tim said he was looking forward to tonight's episode where he's able to finally let go.

"What I focused on every time I was with a girl was the beautiful things I was loving and respecting about each girl and the qualities and what made them unique; I could tell them all of those things," he said.

"I wasn't able to say to anyone, or acknowledge it to myself, that I've fallen in love with you.

"It was such a release in the end to be able to go okay, what am I feeling? Now I can acknowledge what I'm feeling in my heart and then to be able to express that was so nice."

Last week, Tim said goodbye to Ali, a long-time favourite of the show.

And like many other viewers, even Tim was a little teary.

"I was shedding a tear last week, watching myself say goodbye to Ali and just how gracious and positive she is in that situation. It is intense," he said.

"Saying goodbye to Ali, it's a bit of an oxymoron. It was almost a beautiful break-up.

"It was sad but it was nice in the same way two people could walk away, yeah there would be a temporary bit of grief, but you're also able to take all of the positives out of it and not walk away with a broken heart, but with a more fulfilled heart because life's about experiencing things with each other and people come and go, but every person who comes into your life makes you who you are."

A second series of The Bachelor Australia has been announced, and will air on Channel 10 next year.

The Bachelor grand final airs Wednesday at 7.30pm.

After the Final Rose airs Thursday at 7.30pm on Ten.
