It's between Becca and Whitney on tonight's Bachelor finale, and while it could be one of Soules' happiest moments of his life, he's seen breaking down into tears in show promos. Harrison explained Soules' tears to ET.

"He goes back home to Arlington, [Iowa] and he meets the family and they have very candid conversation. His family -- they don't hold punches," Harrison told ET. "They tell him exactly how they feel."

There are reports that Soules is already engaged to Whitney, the fertility nurse from Chicago. The choice would seem to make sense as Becca, the reserved virgin, has voiced her concerns about moving to Soules' rural town.

"Even if you found out what happened tonight, I think you need to see what goes on," Harrison said. "I mean, you need to see what happens with Chris' family. You need to see the reaction and the rejection and everything that takes place."

Rumors are swirling that Soules will be announced as the last Dancing With the Stars contestant on tonight's Bachelor. When the cast was named in February, pro dancer Witney Carson's celebrity partner was left out.

The new Bachelorette is also expected to be revealed and Harrison said it's between two women: Kaitlyn or Britt.
