Gonna do one minor change to the column in an effort to see how it affects my analytics for the site. I’m going to flip-flop the days “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” are posted. So starting tomorrow, “Dr. Reality Steve” will appear on Wednesdays, with “Reader Emails” appearing on Thursdays until further notice. We’re tinkering with a couple things and I just wanted to change something up. So get your “Dr. Reality Steve” emails in today and good chance they’ll be appearing tomorrow. It also gives people an extra day to get in questions from Monday night’s show, or from reading the column on Tuesday. Send all emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last Thursday I had tweeted about some information regarding St. Croix that I hadn’t been made aware of yet. If you missed those, here’s what I tweeted:
“@RealitySteve : Hearing a little note about something in St Croix I hadn’t heard yet. Let me get more details & report when I’ve got it 100% confirmed.”
“@RealitySteve : It’s nothing earth shattering & doesn’t change any spoilers, but it’s noteworthy.”
Then on Friday after getting my information confirmed, I tweeted out:
“@RealitySteve : Lets just say what happens in St. Croix is something we’ve seen before in a previous season. In fact, we saw it in Ben’s season.”
Obviously when I tweeted this out, I knew a lot of people would reply and guess that it had to do with one of the girls coming back on the show. And it does. Sort of (Some actually even guessed that Sean skinny dips with someone. Uhhhhh, no). While almost all of you guessed it had to do with a girl returning to try and win Sean back, you were partially right. A girl does show up in St. Croix, just not to win Sean back.
Sean’s sister Shay shows up in St. Croix to talk with Sean. Shay doesn’t meet any of the women as far as I know, but, Shay’s birthday is Oct. 25th, and that was the day of the rose ceremony in St. Croix, so Sean had her flown out for her birthday. The day of the rose ceremony is the day that Tierra has her meltdown and basically Sean sends her packing before the rose ceremony ever takes place.
I’m not sure on the exact details if Shay was supposed to meet the women and didn’t because Tierra melts down, or maybe she was supposed to meet Tierra, but then Tierra melted down and it didn’t happen, or maybe she was never supposed to meet the women at all. What I do know is that Shay was brought out there because Sean wanted to see his sister on her birthday and they filmed a segment together.
Now, I’m sure some of you might go to Shay’s blog from October and see that she made a post from Oct. 25th entitled “Homecoming,” which shows pictures of her and her husband arriving home from their vacation they had taken before that. Well, it looks like she fooled a lot of people, because she was in St. Croix on Oct. 25th, not arriving home at the airport. So yeah, she threw people off the beaten path with that post. Seems she and her husband arrived home before that, but then just posted it when she knew she’d be gone again. Whatever the case, I tweeted we saw this Ben’s season, because we saw Ben’s sister show up in episode 3 to talk to him. However, as stated Shay’s appearance doesn’t affect the spoilers in any way. Tierra leaves before the rose ceremony after a meltdown and Sean lets her go, and then Lesley M. is eliminated at the rose ceremony.
As for some updated spoilers, thanks to TVGuide.com for giving us episode descriptions, it is now confirmed that 9 women are still remaining after next Monday’s episode in Whitefish, Montana. So next week, Jackie gets eliminated on the 2-on-1 date, and Robyn is sent home at the rose ceremony. So in Canada (which will air the next night on Feb. 5th), Sarah leaves at some point during the group date, and Selma and Daniella are the other two casualties this episode. Also, Desiree has the other 1-on-1 with Sean rappelling down a cliff, while Catherine has the “monster snow truck ride on a glacier” followed by the night time visit to the ice castle, leaving Sarah, Selma, Daniella, Lindsay, Desiree, Catherine, and Tierra as the 7 girls who go canoeing on Lake Louise. These have been updated in your “Bachelor Sean Spoilers” page. There you go. Now your whole season of spoilers is complete.
