— -- On the penultimate episode of "The Bachelor," Ben Higgins told two women -- Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher -- that he loves them.

He also said goodbye to Caila Quinn, and told her how he felt about the two other women.

Quinn told ABC News that while it was rough hearing about his other relationships, she doesn't regret jumping out of the car to further their conversation.

"I distinctly remember being put in the car the first time and crying to myself, saying, 'That cannot be the end. I refuse for that to be the way I say goodbye to him,' because it felt very cold," she explained. "So I got back out of the car and I said to him, 'What happened?' or 'When did you know that this wasn't it?' and I think I needed to hear that from him and just have that genuine moment, and that last hug felt like enough for me, so it was good."

In two weeks, the ABC reality TV show will come to its conclusion, and Higgins told "Good Morning America" that fans can expect to see him propose. However, Quinn, who called the past three months "very hard," is still heartbroken.

"I came home and I told my parents that he broke up with me and nobody understood how hard it was," she said. Now that that they've seen the episode, "they finally do. Him telling me that he was in love with two women was like, 'Ugh. Gosh. Really?!' but I did appreciate him being honest with me, and it did help me heal."

Still single, Quinn, a Boston-based software sales rep, is looking forward to traveling a bit and getting back to work. But her time on reality TV might not be completely over. When asked if she'd consider starring in "The Bachelorette," she said she would.

"I did fall in love before so I know it would work," she said. "But I definitely kind of still need more time so I don't know if that timeline would work out."
