During the first live final rose ceremony, Schefft chose Jerry Ferris, an art gallery director, over John Meritt. Ferris proposed to Schefft, but she rejected his proposal, stating that the chemistry was not there.
Schefft ultimately married Chicago public relations executive Joe Waterman in May 2009; they have two children, Mae Elizabeth and Charlotte Grace.
