Welcome back everyone. What an eventful offseason it’s been. Quite different than in season’s past as although you have your final four spoiler breakdown, everything else is kind of mish mashed together in places. That’s what today’s column will help you with. For the first time in 8 seasons, I do NOT have your episode-by-episode spoilers for you before the first episode airs. Doesn’t mean I won’t eventually get them. I might. I might not. I just don’t have them now. This season has been a little bit tougher. Doesn’t mean the ending is wrong, doesn’t mean I’m going out of business, and doesn’t mean they found my sources. If that were the case, I’d have nothing and no clue what was happening this season. Plenty of stuff was spoiled for you in real time on this site from September through November. The final four breakdown and who Chris is engaged to is as solid as in any other season. I’m sure a few will doubt, but no worries, you’ll see once the finale airs. I wish I could share with you HOW I know about the ending, but, well…I can’t. Just know that anyone who doubts the ending is unaware of what I know and the info I became privy to out of Dubuque, Iowa two days after filming ended. It’s about as solid as you can get. But we move on from that and try to piece together what we can.
First, lets talk about Chris’ pre-season interviews where he revealed two pretty important things:
1) He revealed that he’s in love. Which, after Juan Pablo’s mockery of the franchise last season, it’s partly the reason Chris was chosen in the first place. Not to mention, there was ZERO chance in hell that Chris wouldn’t be engaged at the end of this thing. ZERO.
2) People.com also claimed in a story that Chris took a virgin to the fantasy suites. Well, we know Kaitlyn, Becca, and Whitney were the final three girls who went to Bali for the overnight dates. I can confirm for you that Becca is the one out of those three who is a virgin, so the story is correct. I mean, in Kaitlyn’s first meeting with Chris she’s telling him she wants him to plow her field, and within minutes of being in the mansion, she’s telling sexual jokes to the group. I’m guessing that’s not flying out of a virgin’s mouth. And since Chris is engaged to Whitney, the odds of any “Bachelor” ever proposing to someone who’s a virgin is 1 billion-to-1, that eliminated Whitney. Wasn’t really that hard to deduce who was the virgin out of those three based on what we knew. Becca is the virgin, and no, she didn’t lose her virginity that night either.
Last Tuesday, I posted your episode 1 spoilers since I’d seen the first episode, minus the rose ceremony. Chris did another interview with People.com where he gave his impressions on the first night. Included at the end of this link is the first full length trailer for the remainder of the season. After watching it, you can see that some girls I had not making it past night one did in fact do so. In that video, there are clear shots of Samantha Steffen, Mackenzie Deonigi, and Juelia Kinney. So right now, there are 19 girls that I can confirm made it past night 1:
Yes, even though Tara is completely sh** bombed at the cocktail party and can barely stand up at the rose ceremony and Chris even goes and talks to Chris Harrison about sending her home, she does make it past the first night. Not much further afterwards though, which should be pretty obvious.
That leaves 11 girls fighting for 3 spots since 22 make it past the first night. Those 11 are:
I honestly don’t know which 3 make it. We’ll know in a few hours. But if I had to guess, I’ll go with Jordan, Brittany, and Amanda. I really have no clue. I didn’t see any of those 11 girls in the extended trailer for the season to help me confirm it, hence the reason I’m just guessing.
