This weekend on Utah TV: Will "The Bachelorette" choose the Utah guy?

In the two-hour season finale of The Bachelorette (Sunday, 7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4), Emily has three choices. She can choose Jef, the guy from Utah; she can choose Ari, the other guy; or she can choose neither of them.

ABC is hinting it might be the third option. Which makes me think it won't be the third option.
