What time does The Bachelorette season finale start on Monday night, and how can fans watch the show live online? Two months after JoJo Fletcher started her journey to find love, the 25-year-old Texas real estate developer will hand out her final rose to either Jordan Rodgers or Robby Hayes.
Chris Harrison will host the three-hour finale that will be broadcast in front of a live studio audience starting at 8 p.m. ET on August 1.
Not near a TV to watch the drama play out on ABC on your local ABC TV channel? Here’s how to watch The Bachelorette Season 12 finale live streaming online along with highlights of what fans can expect during Monday night’s three-hour show (spoiler-free) and the top Twitter accounts to follow during the finale if you want to keep up with the commentary from the Bachelorette cast.
Many viewers across the country will be able to watch JoJo’s final one-on-one dates, the proposals at the final rose ceremony, and the live After The Final Rose (ATFR) special via ABC’s live stream option on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
ABC offers the ability to watch many of their popular shows online. Unfortunately, the network doesn’t have this feature set up in every city — see the list of cities below.
If you live in Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham, or San Francisco, use the Watch ABC app to watch ABC programming live online.
You will need to verify that you have a participating TV provider account (Dish Network, Verizon FiOS, Comcast, COX, ATT-Uverse, and more) to gain access to the live stream.
If you aren’t able to watch the show live, the Bachelorette finale should be available for viewing on ABC.go.com approximately 24 hours (sometimes less) after Monday night’s show airs on television.
According to ABC, Bachelorette JoJo has fallen in love with both Robby and Jordan, so the tears will be flowing on Monday night’s finale. Before she has to make a difficult decision at the final rose ceremony, JoJo will go on her final dates with Robby and Jordan and introduce both men to her family.
“They could barely make eye contact during the awkward breakup — even as she professed her love for him. JoJo was sobbing when she told him, ‘I wanted it to be you.'”
The Bachelorette will be a top trend on Twitter on Monday night. Whether you want to read the tweets from the cast or interact with other fans, use the hashtags #TheBachelorette during the finale and #ATFR during the live After the Final Rose special.

Will the Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher get engaged to Jordan Rodgers or Robby Hayes on Monday night? And will the newly-engaged couple share good news on the After the Final Rose special or will they confirm the rumors that they broke up (spoilers in link) when they make their first public appearance since the finale was taped in May?
Whether you watch the Bachelorette season finale on TV or via ABC’s online app, don’t miss a minute of what may be one of the most talked-about finales in the history of the show.
