Chase McNary’s longtime girlfriend, Ellie White, has received his last rose.
The former “Bachelorette” contestant is engaged and announced the exciting news via Instagram on Saturday with a beautiful shot of the proposal.
“It was always you 💍,” he wrote in his caption.
The self-proclaimed “laid-back” medical salesperson appeared to have treated White — whom he’s been dating since 2020 — to a picnic at the base of the Rocky Mountains outside Breckenridge, Colorado, before asking the question.
White, a Colorado-based hat designer and director at a financial planning firm, echoed her now-fiancé’s sentiments, writing in her own post, “Take me off the roster — Forever his 🤍.”
McNary, 33, came into the limelight as a contender for JoJo Fletcher on Season 12 of “The Bachelorette.”
Viewers eventually saw the Colorado native crush his heart in real time when, assuming he was about to enter the Fantasy Suite with Fletcher, he confessed his love to her, but was rejected and then eliminated, leaving him behind. the second runner-up of the season.
McNary later revealed that he was nearly chosen by ABC producers as Season 21’s “Bachelor”, but was reportedly swapped for Nick Viall at the last minute.
“I went through the negotiations, I accepted the offer, I signed the contract,” McNary told Us Weekly. “I talked to my family, friends, about being the Bachelor. It was the Monday before they announced they told me I wasn’t the Bachelor. So I found out along with the rest of the world that it was Nick.”
Despite not being cast as the lead role of “The Bachelor,” McNary appeared briefly in “Bachelor in Paradise” before finding love with his now fiancé.
Colleagues from Bachelor Nation were some of the first to congratulate McNary on his engagement news over the weekend, taking to the comments section to leave heartfelt messages of love and support.
“Chase!! Congratulations ❤️,” wrote Amanda Stanton, a contestant on season 21 of “The Bachelor.”
“Ermerghrd congratulations duuude!” gushed season 14 “Bachelorette” runner-up Blake Horstmann, who recently went Instagram official with “Love Is Blind” star Giannina Gibelli.
