After introducing both Holm and fellow contestant Arie Luyendyk to her parents in Curacao, Maynard agreed to introduce Holm to her 7-year-old daughter, and apparently that's what sealed the deal.

When Mayard met up with Luyendyk for their final date, she told him, "I don't want you to think it's because of anything you did or didn't do. You are everything." Luyendyk didn't take it to well, as he angrily told Maynard, "I don't know what you want. Thank you for sparing me the embarrassment tomorrow." The next day Marnard told the cameras that she knew she had found the "best husband and best dad" in Holm, and after revealing that she had sent Luyendyk home, Holm prepared to pop the question.

"What I'm about to ask you aren't just empty words [for] a few months, a few years, a few decades," Holm told Maynard. "It's a forever thing."
