Although they didn’t receive much screentime, The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart cast saw sparks between Chris and Bri on night one. Then in the second episode, viewers were caught up to speed as the couple received a date card.
Chris and Bri went to Guitar Center and awkwardly sang “Can’t Help Falling In Love” to each other. But they also opened up to one another on camera. Bri shared her past, revealing she was once engaged. And while she admitted people in relationships can be cruel, she said she was falling in love with Chris.
Then after their week 4 performance at The Novo in DTLA, Bri told Chris she loved him and he reciprocated her feelings. And the pair only got stronger in the fifth week, redeeming their “Can’t Help Falling In Love” performance — this time in front of a panel of judges. Now do Chris and Bri have what it takes to go the distance after The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart ends?

On Feb. 12, Bachelor Nation’s spoiler king, Reality Steve, revealed details about The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart finale, including the winners. And as it turns out, Chris and Bri win over the judges with their rendition of Ed Sheeran’s “Give Me Love.”
“After they sang the judges went to deliberate then came back and announced that Bri and Chris were the winners,” Reality Steve wrote in February 2020. “Bri and Chris won the opportunity to write and record some original music and make at least one music video. Also, Chris and Bri will be leaving on a tour right after the finale airs.”
The franchise blogger then revealed Chris and Bri told each other they loved each other before their last performance together while filming Listen to Your Heart.

For now, Bachelor Nation fans will have to hold on a little longer before Chris and Bri reveal whether they’re still together after The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart. It’s likely they’ll share details about their current relationship status on social media following the finale. And while it seems unlikely the pair got engaged on the ABC reality series, host Chris Harrison hinted Listen to Your Heart could end in a proposal.
“There’s always the hope and the promise of love, and if love is strong enough, it would be a proposal,” Harrison told Entertainment Tonight in April 2020. “Some, maybe multiple couples, would ride off into the sunset. I mean, it’s happened in Paradise. The ultimate dream of the show is that at the end of the day, we have one superstar couple that is the Listen to Your Heart champion couple, and they are deeply, madly in love.”
But regardless, Chris and Bri have seemingly teased their status on Instagram since The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart premiered in April 2020. And whether or not the two are now engaged or even broken up, Chris and Bri have a playful relationship on the social media platform.
“One last hug before showtime,” Chris wrote on May 11 alongside a photo with Bri. “So excited for tonight!”
Meanwhile, both music artists took the same line from “Can’t Help Falling In Love” to caption their performance from week 5. “Darling so it goes, some things are meant to be,” Bri wrote on Instagram.
No matter what happens in the finale, Chris and Bri’s relationship on The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart has been a joy to watch. Now fans patiently wait as the couple gives their final performance on the reality series. And hopefully, Chris and Bri will reveal their current status and maybe even release music together in the future.
Update: Following the Listen to Your Heart finale, Chris and Bri are still together — just not physically. The couple released their debut album, Chris and Bri. Meanwhile, when speaking with Us Weekly, the winners shared where they are now.
“We really have grown a lot stronger in this time. It’s been beautiful,” Chris said. “I really do feel like we are prepared for the best and the worst, you know, when it comes to like, wanting to see relationship all the way through.”
He continued: “I feel like we’ve just experienced so much together that it’s just like we have such a strong trust that if she’s going to tell me something, or if I’m going to tell her something, but we know that it’s just because we want the best for each other. And that’s like, the best thing that you can have at any relationship having a really strong trust.”
