She may not have found true love during her time on The Bachelor in 2002, but Helene Eksterowicz certainly has now.

The winner of the second season of the hit ABC show, which starred bachelor Aaron Buerge, is engaged to her boyfriend, Andrew Goodman.

Goodman proposed to the former reality show contestant with a stunning rectangular radiant-cut diamond ring, which he designed with a little help from Max Weiner Jewelers in Philadelphia.

And the bride-to-be couldn’t be happier with her fiancé’s taste in jewelry. “The ring is perfect,” Eksterowicz tells PEOPLE. “It’s exactly what I’ve always wanted.”

Goodman popped the question during a jaunt to the Poconos to celebrate Eksterowicz’s birthday, and the couple plans to tie the knot this summer. Tell us: Do you like Eksterowicz’s ring?

Not my kind of ring, but that’s a radiant cut, not an emerald cut.

I don’t know the difference between the stone cuts, but I do know that is one gorgeous ring! Congratulations!

No, but he ain’t cute either and it’s not my life.

Stunning!! Congratulations, Helene!

It looks like Drew Barrymore’s ring (and Drew’s is a radiant cut diamond I believe).

The shape of the diamond is emerald, the cut is radiant

Jen on

Gorgeous. I would not be upset at all to get this ring.

I live in the same city as former “Bachelor” Aaron Buerge.

Helene dodged a bullet with that one.

He was dating around openly here in town in the period of time between the taping of the show and the announcement of the winner, which is the time he was supposedly engaged to Helene.

He has since married a Stepford wife and filed bankruptcy.
