While the final contractor proposed to the pilot through the first half of the episode, the After the Final Rose particular revealed that he had been untrue because the duo confronted challenges whereas the season was airing.
“I messed up and kissed another girl, but the second I did I knew I belonged with you,” Tino defined. “This was the tiniest thing ever. … I tried to just get past it. … The stuff you said hurt so much. You said, ‘I don’t know how this is going to work … I can’t do happy couples this weekend like we planned.’”

After the hometowns drama went down, Joe launched a prolonged listing of opinions and clarifications about himself and his son.

NO, I do not have a comb-over (and it is not a rug either) 4. NO, I am not the same age as Tino, as a few tweets suggested,” he wrote through social media. “5. We are Mexican, not Italian, though media keeps saying Italian. If he really is Italian, it’s news to me, and then I’d be asking really tough questions! 6. Tino is amazing. He supported our son’s cancer recovery, volunteers to the cause to this day and volunteers countless hours. 7. Sandi is spelled Sandi not Sandy 8. There are no vampires in our family 9. Sandi has more than one dress … seriously … and who notices that in a photo?”
