The 26-year-old dental student was obviously sad she wasn't the last woman standing, but when Herbert appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to make the announcement, she said, "I think it all worked out for the best."

She also made a vow to Kimmel, to "promise, on national television, to date 25 men simultaneously without complaining? Do you promise to make sure the hot tubs are clean and have enough chlorine and their bacteria levels are low?"

Herbert said, "I'll do my best with that!"

The new season of The Bachelorette begins on May 23rd.
