Actually, it was neither. In what can only be described as a dramatic conclusion, Shep jetted off to New York City to meet up with Bella, who had to leave Charleston earlier in the season for work, and he expressed his true feelings for her, saying that she's the one for him.
Of course, every RelationShep fan has his or her own opinion about whether or not Shep chose the right girl (you can make your voice heard in our poll here). But one famous fan definitely did not see that Bella twist coming.
Chrissy Teigen thought RelationShep was going to have a totally different ending. "@ShepRose def thought you were gonna pick your producer," she tweeted Monday.
Shep and his producer Sarah's great on-screen chemistry has made the possibility of them getting together at the end of RelationShep a popular theory among fans. "You aren’t alone on that. Honestly surprised so many felt that way," Shep responded to Teigen's tweet. "We’re super close friends but it’s just not like that. Thanks for watching Chrissy. Cheers!"
Shep explained why he and Sarah wouldn't make a perfect pair on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in December. "I love Sarah, and I would do anything for her, but she would kill me. She's nothing like me," he said. "The problem is her lifestyle is so pure and good and mine is just not."
