In what’s become a seasonal tradition now, since yesterday was #VindicationDay, lets take a look back over the last 4 months from emailers who brought a smile to my face and make me want to be a better person. Who am I kidding? These people apparently have lives and jobs. Crazy. I won’t lose any sleep waiting for any apologies from these MENSA members…
I saw where you said last week that Chris is engaged to Whitney? You’re kidding me, right? Where do you even come up with this? How could you possibly know that two days after the final rose ceremony? Don’t you think that Fleiss is trying to fool you again by giving you information that quickly? I’d be careful if I were you because I hear things too…
I have a bone to pick with you regarding your spoilers for this season…THEIR WRONG!!!! How can you have the ending but not anything else? Don’t you realize that no one’s going to believe you on this. They shouldn’t because all you are doing is guessing at what happens after getting a few tips here and their. I think you need to look into a new kind of work once this season is over because I’m pretty sure Chris is engaged to that Becca girl….happy sleuthing you moron! Hahahahahahahaha
So I just watched the premiere last night and there is no way that Chris is engaged to Whitney…..no man in their right mind could possibly want to b married to that voice. I think u were fooled again this year because I’d be willing to bet anything that your wrong ths time.
Didn’t u see when becca exited the limo how they made sure to focus on her out of the remaining group of 15 girls? Why do you think they did that? And just because they didn’t give her airtime that much in the eps doesn’t mean she doesn’t win. Nobody ever saw Catherine until their first 1on1 date later on in the season and now their engaged!!! I think you’re gonna be wrong on this one buddy. Nice try…
Just wanted to tell you I don’t’ even care who Chris picks. I just want you to be wrong. Any guy who spends as much time as you do writing about a dating show deserves the worst. Seriouisly dude, get a life!!!!!! I hope at some point you realize no one cares what you do or if youre right or wrong. Grow up and get a real job
I don’t know what youre deal is with Becca and why you keep constantly bringing up her virginity but it’s disgusing. What’s wrong wit u? Just becuz a girl has morals and values that means she deserves to be made fun of? Just becuz she doesn’t sleep with every guy she meets like that tramp Britt that makes her less of a woman? I can’t believe you are actually paid to write what you write. It’s garbabe. I’m turning all my friends off to u and can’t wait til your wrong at the end of the season.
Becca is the most pure, light hearted, fun loving girl this show has ever had and any guy would be lucky to have her. Chris sees that in her and that’s why he’s going to choose her in the end. All these other women are cold and callous and snipe at each other whiel Becca minds her own business…and stays out of the drama!!!! If not for her I wouldn’t even be wtching this show..i don’t nedd your showvanisitic remarks towards her. What are you gonna say when they end up engaged huh?
I hope you have a back up plan in life because you’ll never make it as a writer. This site is terrible and you’ll never have me looking at your site ever again after today. Goodbye!!!
I’m such a hopeless romantic and I know that Chris anb Becca are destined to be together. I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but do you know how much of a role religion plays in Becca’s life? It’s huge. That’s important to Chris. I see their connection every time they’re together. It’s two kindred spirits that are meant to be. I know it sounds sappy and you’ll just laugh at me, but I’m serious. You wouldn’t know love if it came and slaped you in the face. These two are so in love it’s magical. You are going to be wrong at the end fo the season and I can’t wait.
He doesn’t hav a love connection with Whitney. He just likes the way she looks. What he has with Becca is so much deeper and so much more ona spiritual intellectual level that it can’t be matched. I love seeing these two together and I can’t wait to see their love story prosper even more over the next few episodes. I know their one on one date coming up will solidify it for me and you will be eating your words.
I don’t mean to be such a downer but you should really try and be more accurate with your “predictions”!!! no one likes seeing bad information put out there and you sir have done just that. Chris and Becca are the best couple this show will ever produce. You just watch.
Dear Reality Steve,
This season would seriously be a zero without Becca on it. She’s what makes the show the most interesting and I bet you they wouldn’t even have any ratings if she wasn’t on it. They know if they don’t show Chris and Becca in the end no one will watch anymore because it’ll be a farce!!! You’re wrong in your prediction that Chris is with Whitney. He’s totally with Becca I just know it. He looks at her differently than he looks at all the other women. You can see it in his eyes that he’s just a different person when he’s around her. She’s the real deal and he knows it. Your spoiler is wrong. I don’t know where you get your info from and I don’t care. I know it’s wrong. I hear things too ya’ know? Good luck trying to recover from this one being wrong again. Loser!!!
Becca for the winn!!!!!! Reality Steve loses!!!!! I can’t wait to see you eat crow when the finale airs. These two are SOOOOO getting engaged!!!
An email exchange I had on March 4th. As you can see, stopped after the last email since, well, no point in going back and forth with the ignorant.
i don’t mean to be annoying or to doubt you but you find this funny. According to some forum (bachettefans or something) idk I saw this on IG Becca has been working with a wedding planner in San Diego and Whitney has signed on to be the Bachelorette which is why she quit her job or something
Me: A forum? I rest my case.
is this true
“Someone on fb said she works with W’s cousin and that C and W have broken up already. Another person said she heard the same thing.”
Me: You read too much gossip.
But Becca’s family was flown into LA. There are pictures on IG of them in Cali. They usually fly in F1’s family in for the ATFR. I think you need to check with your sources again.
Steve…I love the way you handle all the idiots out there who doubt you. Very well done. I know I’ve emailed you in the past regarding a message board that constantly bad mouths you and you say you don’t care, but they have like 1,000 scenarios going on over there where people are predicting how the ending goes. Here’s one of them that someone posted yesterday (are these people SERIOUS?)
Here’s what I posted last night as a possible ending (I’m just positive it will end this way laugh out loud ):
Becca shows up F2, he sends her home. Whitney shows up, Chris proposes but he doesn’t say he loves her, just “Will you marry me?” Whitney has been worrying all week about whether Chris loves her and she wants to know if his heart is with her or Becca. (Let’s just say she knows Becca is not in love with him.) But he breaks down and can’t say he loves her (remember he only told one woman ILY). So she throws the ring at him and walks out. And this is why she sort of looks mad in the limo, upset but mad too. So then Chris jumps on his motorcycle, floors it, and catches up with Becca’s limo. Tells her he loves her and asks her “can’t we just give love a shot?” They can just take it slow until she’s ready for a ring. She says okay because she didn’t want them to end. Then, they kiss with the sunset behind them!! Right there on the highway in the middle of nowhere! Then they hop on his motorcycle together and ride off into the sunset! The End …to be continued
Heartbroken Whitney is the next Bachelorette. The twist is it’s the first time the F1 becomes the next Bachelorette, and the F2 becomes the F1. And the first time the Bachelor was almost the one to be heartbroken and not the F2.
Steve please rip these people a new one. They are so caught up in everything you say and do yet here they are messaging each other back and forth all day long like a bunch of 6th graders. Talk about clueless!
I’ll see if I can find some more ridiculous ones…
Ok, I’m back. I found the most crazy thing you’ll probably see anyone ever write regarding this show and what do you know! Its from that message board I tell you about. This person has been saying all season he expects a big twist in the end and that Chris chooses Kaitlyn!!! He even wrote this diatribe yesterday. Seriously don’t laugh. This person needs psychological help. I can’t believe they wrote this….
“After Kaitlyn was dumped, I went back to Guardian Angel’s F1 poll and debated whether or not I should cast my vote again for Becca.
Yet I couldn’t. I have this itch that is bothering me.
Yes, I am well aware that Kaitlyn’s boat has left the dock and it seems like she will be on the live ATFR as a Bachelorette candidate rather than somebody Chris may “date” post-show if he happens to breakup with either Becca or Whitney. Even Mister Harrison has insinuated… sort of… kind of… in interviews and blogs that The Kaitlyn Story is finished.
At least until May if she is chosen.
Yet that itch keeps bothering me. It WILL go away once I see Chris and Becca… or Whitney… happy together on the couch discussing their futures together. However, I hope nobody minds if I get a couple things bothering me out of my system here. You can all ignore this elephant of a post if you like.
Going back to this little gem that keeps giving the gift of giving each time you view it…
Key quote: “Everyone is divided of the Bachelor’s final two”
Everyone? Did Fleiss & Company and ABC bother to ask ME if I am “divided” about the “final two”? This makes me mad… and reminds me of Desiree’s Men Tell All show, which like Chris’ WTA did not show a “montage” of the remaining contestants’ “journeys so far”, but instead stuck to the most depressing promo in Bachelor/ette history. (*sniff sniff* I don’t deserve to be heart-broken… *sniff sniff*) Over the end credits, people in the audience gave their opinions of how Desiree’s season would end. Some were pessimistic. At least two thought there would be a happy ending. Another two (I think, but can’t remember exactly) said she would pick Brooks and yet another was “Team Drew”. Yet I, as a TV viewer, wasn’t asked my opinion… nor was Murasaki, Soccermom and a few others not apart of the show but watching from home. We didn’t necessarily agree with the rest of Bachelor Nation that she would pick Brooks, Drew or… nobody. Prince Siegfried was never offered as an option.
Back to this promo, we are given equal evidence that Bachelor Nation is rooting for EITHER Whitney or Becca (and Don’t You Dare Suggest Any Other Option To The End Of This Silly Show Or Else You Will Be Banished Outside The Gates Of Bachelor Nation!)
“I love Whitney omg”
“Becca and Chris are cute together!”
“Becca = real deal #TheBachelor #TeamBecca”
“Really really hope Whitney is the one”
“Definitely rooting for Whitney!”
“Becca is my favorite pick for him right now”
“Whitney is the only way to go. It’s just the right choice.”
“I’m definitely rooting for Becca”
“Whitney you’re the cutest thing and my vote is for you.”
Hilariously this bombardment of tweets are over shots of sad-sad Becca and Chris rubbing his eyes. They clearly aren’t as happy as the twitterers.
Chris voice-overs “I may not propose to anyone”.
Then… as he puts down the rose, the Voice of Gawd tells us “after the final rose, the surprise twist no one saw coming… LIVE!”
Well… Chris is in the hot seat and Becca and Whitney look “shocked”. Maybe those two will be saying “I didn’t see that coming”?
In the previous two promos shown before and after WTA, we get Chris lines like:
“I don’t think it is possible to make a choice.”
His buddy: “I think Chris is really 50/50 and I think that’s highly unfortunate.” (Again, the wooden rooster in the background… LOL! Also the 50/50 is over a shot of a ring that he may or may not use… 50/50 chance here.)
“There’s a very real option that I may not propose to anyone today”
*Cue a shot of him putting down the rose. He did this before choosing Tara in the premiere, but needed to talk to Harrison first. (As he abruptly left the ladies, Whitney said “OMG” under her breath.)
He repeated the act after eliminating Jillian in episode 3. This was also part of a group date that both Becca and Whitney attended that involved wedding dresses run through mud. Chris’ key quote: “Putting on these dresses, these girls think they may be walking down the aisle with me, but… um… there’s a surprise in store.”
He again, for the third time, put the rose down in Bali before talking to Becca… and then giving both her and Whit the roses. “Oh shoot” as Kaitlyn says in one promo.
Now… will the “rose pendulum” swing in the same direction THIS time as with Tara and Becca/Whit… or will it swing like Jillian’s situation?
Chris asks Becca: “What do you want?” She responds: “I don’t know! I’m waiting for *it* to happen, but I want to get married and I want to have kids”. She is then asked if she can make a decision in two days. In the most recent promo, she just says Chris is “the type” of guy she would marry… but not necessarily The One. At least not yet. She could decide in the last moment and they are now living happily ever after.
Whitney is gung-ho certain she’s the future Mrs. Soules, but she too has a “red flag”. He told her in Bali that there’s nothing to do in Arlington and, even though he likes traveling, he also likes “staying at home” a lot. She, in turn, said she worked very hard in her career to get where she’s at… the same saga as equally professional Andi Dorfman, who suggested to Chris when she dumped him that she got “lost” in her visit to Iowa and wasn’t thinking rationally. Could she “bend” her Chicago life to Arlington as easily as she thinks while visiting his parents… in Iowa, where even Andi’s thoughts got cloudy?
We can also add her sister’s concerns at hometown as being “one in four”. Of course, she was one in four at THAT stage. Yet it is interesting that the week earlier, Britt was angry about Chris giving Kaitlyn the group rose and told him her future husband would never view her as second, third or fourth.
Even though he dumped Kaitlyn, he never gave her an answer of “closure”, stating that he was simply throwing darts in making a decision. Both said they were in love with each other… or, at least, HE was “falling in love” in Bali if not “in love” yet. In Arizona, his rap lyrics read: “Flying down the rapids / my heart was beating fast / I hope I don’t fall out / So I can make this love last.” Yes, he did choose Becca over her, but did he ever officially “fall out”?
So… *technically*… Kait IS still off the table for our consideration, but.. IF… IF… things don’t work out with the other two, she is still available until the moment she signs on The Bachelorette Contract’s dotted line. Certainly Jimmy Kimmel gave his approval way back in episode 3, “because you can fly around the world up in a helicopter looking over beautiful vistas, but a real relationship is going to Costco’s and buying napkins.”
In other words, The Bachelor Show is one “world”, but not necessarily the same world you occupy when the cameras go away.
@northernviewer wrote:I only have a passing interest in this season, but one impression I did get of Chris is that he’s almost afraid to make a decision without getting input from other people. I don’t remember any lead who listens to other contestants and family the way he does. I find him very insecure about where he lives and that he’s basing his choice on which girl will actually move there, more than he’s basing it on who he has the best connection to. If he indeed did choose Whitney, I think it’ll more because she’s his “failsafe” and that he believes her words more than he trusts his heart. I honestly believe that if he didn’t live in such an isolated place that his choices might have been different throughout the season. Just my opinion based on what I’ve seen …. and I couldn’t care less how this season ends, but I do have a feeling that it’s not going to be a normal ending. I’ve mentioned before that I think it’s going to be more of a Charlie/Jason/Brad 1.0 kinda ending, and I’m still thinking along those lines.
Keep your post on the back burner, northerviewer, for future reference.
It may NOT apply to Chris’ season, but… mark my word… a future bachelor or ‘ette may very well repeat any or ALL of the following…
Charlie dated his chosen without an “official” engagement like most leads
Jason asked previously DUMPED Molly if they “could go out for coffee or something”… and eventually married her.
Brad 1.0 eliminated two ladies at his final rose ceremony. (You can also add Jen Schefft being indecisive of Jerry Ferris at FRC and eliminating him at ATFR.)
@chasingpavements wrote:He has said that he has picked someone (and his family said that she’s a great girl), so he definitely picked SOMEONE. I guess it’s just a matter of whether he picked her at the FRC or will make his decision at the AFRC. I honestly don’t see that happening, because I don’t see how he could date both of them without anyone finding out. I feel like he could have picked someone but will propose at the AFRC. And, if it was a Jason-type ending, I feel like they would hype it a lot more. This just seems like the twist they were promoting for Emily’s AFRC, where it just turned out that Arie went to NC/wrote a letter.
One interview that stood out for me was Ellen’s, broadcast before the fantasy dates when there were three contestants in the running. Although Ellen was baffled between Whitney (her choice) and Becca, “Firecracker” was still there and she never asked Chris, his sisters and mom if he ONLY selected from those two.
I do agree with your way of thinking here. A lot of scenarios don’t make any sense. Then again, after Fleiss decided to include Consummation Station on Sean and Catherine’s wedding, I think ANYTHING is possible with this silly show.
Back in January, I did some brain storming here on the “general discussion” thread and posted:
Keep this tidbit on the back burner. Maybe it means nothing at all, but I’ll add it here anyway.
Last season, Andi kept saying she came here to find a husband. As it turned out, she didn’t…
Likewise Jason talked much the same talk and even proposed to Melissa. Then he dumped her post-show and asked Molly if they could… date.
Backtrack to Andi’s Men Tell All show when (was it?) Elan had brought a lady in the audience to “go on a date with” Chris. He was sitting with Harrison in the hot seat and seemed surprised by her arrival. Intriguingly she was from… Canada.
If… IF… and all I am doing is Thinking Outside Of The Box with different scenarios here… there is a pro-Kaitlyn “gotcha” at the end of this, I do NOT believe it was an accident.”
Wow Steve. Wow. That’s all I got to say about that. I can’t believe there are people that obsessed in overthinking this show that much. And I swear to you, that person has pages and pages of other stuff just like this but this was most recent so I thought I’d share. Can’t wait til you’re proven right!!!
