Bachelorette Becca Spoilers

(EXCLUSIVE) Ten of Becca’s Guys on the “Bachelorette,” & the 2nd Annual Reality Steve Bracket Challenge

Just when you think it’s over, it isn’t. One season ends, and a new one begins. Not that this is surprising or snuck up on anyone since this has been their schedule for the last 6 seasons or so, but the “Bachelorette” begins filming this week. So in honor of that, today I’ll be giving you 10 of Becca’s guys. Five of which you already met last Tuesday night on the ATFR that I gave you full names of on Twitter right after they were announced. Today, I have your full profiles for them, along with 5 other guys, although I gave you one of those 5 last week in Clay Harbor. So technically you’ll be getting 4 new guys today you didn’t previously know about. Kind of a crazy schedule the next couple weeks as I’ll be traveling. Tomorrow morning I leave for my annual March Madness trip to Vegas, so podcast #69 with LA Times writer and author of “Bachelor Nation” Amy Kaufman will be released a day earlier than usual AND probably about 6:00am CST as well. Then next week I’m headed to New York for the weekend. So any “Bachelorette” spoilers happening this weekend, whether it be dates, pictures, etc, will be spoiled on my Twitter account since there won’t be any columns going up after tomorrow until at least Tuesday next week. I guess there’s an outside chance filming will begin tomorrow, but I believe it’s Thursday. Most of the guys arrived yesterday, and usually when they arrive Monday, it means a Thursday start. But Fleiss, Mills, and Harrison always tweet about night one, so it won’t be a secret which night filming is starting. I’ll keep you updated as best I can on Twitter.

Speaking of March Madness, I went back and forth on this and decided to bring it back. The Second Annual Reality Steve Bracket Challenge. We did this last year, had a ton of entries, so we’re doing it again. It’s free to enter and there will be a prize to the winner. You can enter up to five brackets per person. I believe you have to set up a account to play, but if you want to enter, here is the link for it:

Can’t remember how I did the point system last year, but, for the 1st and 2nd rounds, picking upsets will be beneficial. Point system is as follows:

First Round: Each correct pick is worth 1 point. The seed of the winning team is added to the correct pick total.
Second Round: Each correct pick is worth 2 points. The seed of the winning team is added to the correct pick total.
Sweet 16: Each correct pick is worth 4 points. There is no bonus applied.
Elite 8: Each correct pick is worth 8 points. There is no bonus applied.
Final Four: Each correct pick is worth 16 points. There is no bonus applied.
Championship: Each correct pick is worth 32 points. There is no bonus applied.

So if you pick a #10 to beat a #7 in round 1, you’ll get 1 point for their win and 10 pts as your bonus. This only applies for the games this weekend. Once we start the Sweet 16 next week, there are no bonus points for the seeds. Good luck and I will be contacting the winner in 3 weeks letting them know what they’ve won.

I’m a guest on Olivia Caridi’s “Mouthing Off” podcast this week that just got released today. You can go to any podcast platform and just download the “Mouthing Off” podcast, or you can just click here to listen. We cover a lot on Arie’s season and a whole bunch of other stuff. One thing we didn’t cover was her podcast the week before when she had James Taylor on and he said that I blackmailed him to doing my podcast last year. Couldn’t be further from the truth and I already addressed this last week in “Reader Emails.” However, many of you have emailed me in the last week telling me what James said, and my response is, it’s completely false, I have the receipts to prove it, and James is completely out of line for suggesting anything remotely close to that even happened. That’s all I need to say on the matter.

And in the “Least Shocking News of Yesterday,” Ashley & Kevin our first “Winter Games” couple, have announced they’ve broken up. So there’s that. What’s somewhat funny is during my podcast that I recorded yesterday with Amy, you’ll be able to hear as she received a g-chat from someone who told her Ashley & Kevin had broken up. As far as I know it was before the announcement was official, so you see how we handle that news as she gets it. I don’t think I need to say much more than I already did regarding Kevin’s intentions from the second he stepped foot on “Winter Games” to this break up announcement that didn’t even last 3 months.

Ok, lets get to some of your guys for Becca’s season. Of course, with filming not having started yet, there’s always a chance that any one of these guys could get cut last minute and not make the show which I can’t predict, but I can assure you all these guys are out in LA right now ready to be cast. The first five are the five we were introduced to last Tuesday night at the ATFR in the order they appeared. Page 2 has another 4 guys and Clay Harbor who I gave you last Tuesday night. Enjoy and let your pre-judging commence…

1. Lincoln Adim: 26, Los Angeles, CA. Family is from Nigeria, but he grew up in the UK, hence the accent you heard on the ATFR. Graduated the University of Kentucky in 2014 with a degree in biological sciences. Hasn’t been in LA very long and works as an account executive for Oracle. Also heavily involved in fitness as you can see by some of his pictures.

2. Chase Vergason: 27, Winter Park, FL. Graduated University of South Carolina in 2014 with a Bachelors in Business Management.

Was working for Circle Surrogacy for a few years, an agency that assists people having children through surrogacy or egg donation. Unsure of what he’s doing for work now. Landscape Designer and Contractor for GreenPro Direct. A bit of a free spirit who marches to the beat of his own drum, as evidenced by him showing up on the ATFR playing the banjo.

    Yep. Same here.

    I predict David Ravitz for the win. You heard it here first!

    I’m in the middle of Kaufman’s book now and find it super interesting. I can’t wait to hear what she says on the podcast. One thing about her book that I find super fascinating is how set up the environment is to make people act super out of character and irrationally. It makes me, as a viewer, a bit more sympathetic to the cast. I especially found the part about how ITM interviews are conducted and are very similar to police interrogations. Many cast members will actually say whatever the hell will get them out of the room faster (Sharleen and Chris Bukowski both admitted to doing this).

    I appreciate looking at the cast list and bios, but I find it hard to judge on social media profiles alone.

    David has a genuine smile that makes me think he may be a good fit for Becca. Blake also seems like a fun-loving chill guy, so will have to see how that plays out. Definitely need to see their personalities and interactions with Becca though. I’m really looking forward to this season! Haven’t been excited about a season since Kaitlyn’s!

  6. adelina

    March 13, 2018 at 11:24 AM

    I don’t see anything wrong with Nick’s face? Do you know him personally?

    David Ravitz is a cutie pie. Such a breath of fresh air to see someone who doesn’t post weight lifting/muscle shots.

  7. LM111

    March 13, 2018 at 11:34 AM

    I know what you guys mean about Nick’s face. To me it’s because he isn’t smiling, looks unfriendly. Resting bitch face?!

    I’ll pass on the “too cool for school” guys.

  8. ctrealitygirl

    March 13, 2018 at 11:57 AM

    So far I’m not very impressed with Becca’s choices. I agree with everyone that David seems decent enough, but I hope the next 15 are better. After a season with a dud like Arie, I’d like to see her have some exciting guys

    I think Clay Harbor left either last night or this AM for LA. I follow him on Insta and he was in the New Orleans Saints training facility yesterday and in Naperville, Illinois over the weekend.

  10. justa_viewer

    March 13, 2018 at 2:34 PM

    Maybe Nick’s face is naturally that way? Reminds me of Ames from The Bachelorette. I’ll reserve judgment.

    Are we to infer from the pics that Blake already has a girlfriend (or maybe a conveniently temporarily, an “ex” girlfriend)?

    Crikey, Clay is the only one in his 30s! I hope there are going to be more guys over 30 in this bunch. A lot of women like a guy who’s older than they are. I’m just sayin’.

    Did Becca tell Bachelor Production that her “type” was a nice brawny athlete (physically big like her ex)?

    First off I want to say I know David Ravitz personally. Me and him frequently play Madden NFL 18 together (Xbox Live). If he is anything on TV like he is on the sticks then he has absolutely no shot. We’ve been playing since High School and he has yet to beat me online this year. He’s so bad there’s times I’m concerned about his well being. He’ll run the play action literally 50% of the time and it never works. We used to play 2k18 online together too and he would constantly hog the ball in MyPlayer, couldn’t stand it.

    Now don’t get me wrong, I’m totally pulling for him. He’s repping Cherry Hill (go Cougars), I just figured the Bachelorette community would like some juicy details on David. Also his mom makes great cookies.

    (PS Ldoss and HumbleClient couldn’t buy a win against me either, they suck).

    I literally stopped reading your comment at “me and him”. Good Lord.

  13. ladyjane747

    March 13, 2018 at 7:21 PM

    Thanks for the inside information, bobcowzy. Not a whole lot of good looking guys in this bunch, although they have good bodies; hope the next batch is more attractive.

  14. rob22

    March 13, 2018 at 7:35 PM

    Is The Bachelorette now a video game? Who knew?

  15. jlal

    March 14, 2018 at 3:51 AM

    OMG mariet too funny. I thought the same thing as you and also rob22 too. I heard someone from the UK say that “Americans don’t speak English. They don’t even know the proper pronoun to use”, thought that was sad, but true. As for the video game reference who cares? Other than the fact that she may not want to be with someone who is going to spend all their time playing video games.

    I too am not impressed with any of the guys yet. At least the ones I saw on the show did impressed me at all. The horse guys seemed nice, but that Darius just seemed creepy, like a player. Newsflash to the men out there – Telling a woman you just met that she looks pretty is fine, going on and on and making creeping sounds is just insulting.

    I also notice that most are around 27, and way into their fitness and apparently themselves.
    Becca needs a mature guy who has more to offer than muscles.

    Re Lincoln. His accent and how he speaks, depends very much on which part of the UK he lived, and not always an awful lot to do with education. Because ‘me and him’, is a slang way of talking and very much to do with dialect too. Best not judge an entire nation on how one man speaks. Lol 😉

  17. tinyred500

    March 14, 2018 at 5:55 AM

    I mis-read your comment! 🙁 My sincere apologies. I thought you were referring to Lincoln and you wasn’t. All I can say (as a Brit), there are peeps who are guilty of slang and poor English on both sides of the pond…. 😉

  18. bobcowzy69420

    March 14, 2018 at 5:56 AM

    @jlal “I thought the same thing as you and also rob22 too” don’t you think ‘also’ and ‘too’ are a bit redundant in that context? “At least the ones I saw on the show did impressed me at all.” I can’t even begin to understand what this sentence means. Did impressed me at all? I stopped reading after this sentence. In fact it hurt my brain so much I had a conversation with my personal attorney to see if this could be considered assault. I heard someone from the US say “The British don’t brush their teeth” thought that was sad, but true.

    As for the video game reference, my Madden online record is 17-6 and I challenge anyone on this board to a game of online head to head. Ravitz stinks at Madden but could probably beat @jlal and @mariet with his eyes closed. #RavitzBacheloretteSquad #NobodiesBeatingRavitz #TeamRavitz #ShopRite #MamaRavitzsCookies #CherryHillEast #YouComeForTheKingYouBetterNotMiss

    The British don’t brush their teeth? Lol Untrue, a lot just don’t choose to have glow white ‘whitened’ teeth I suppose. 😉

    I know you’re ‘only’ responding to jlal’s comment, but respectfully, please don’t drag another nation (rather rudely) into your comment to prove your point. 🙁

    Is your comment for real?

    wtf is this?? they must have forgotten the black bachelorette was last year and the current one is white. what are they trying to do? promote interracial dating? no one from this show INCLUDING the black bachelorette has ever picked a black person. seems ridiculous to bring on that many and force them unto bachelor/ettes who have no interest in interracial dating

    she just finished dating an effeminate white guy what the hell would she want half her suitors being black bodybuilders??

  22. upmyalley

    March 14, 2018 at 10:10 PM

    Nick’s face just looks sad to me. Becca is a wimpy white dude dater if she thought Arie was hot lol We can understand why they didn’t make a big deal of having him shoot shirtless like they have done with many bachelors in the past. In fact, they appeared to hide his body haha, sorry grandpa Arie. As for these guys that Steve has given us, I’m not impressed yet either like many of you. I do hope that God chooses a manly man this time around though.

  23. upmyalley

    March 14, 2018 at 10:13 PM

    I mean I hope Becca chooses a manly man this time around not God!

    Shoo fly!

  26. dash35

    March 14, 2018 at 10:40 PM

    The agenda for her to choose a man of color is very strong. It’s so strong that it’s off-putting. So far, David is the only impressive one. She might not have impressive taste though.

  27. tinyred500

    March 15, 2018 at 1:28 AM

    Just looking at the photo’s I can’t say I’d personally fancy any of them so far, but there’s a few more to be revealed yet. I really have no idea of Becca’s type, so I’d be useless at picking the top 4! lol 😀

  28. jlal

    March 15, 2018 at 4:02 AM

    Sorry about the did vs didn’t and creeping vs creepy, typing fast and this site does not have an edit. I stand by my statement about the appalling misuse of pronouns.

    As to playing a video game bobowzy69420, thanks but no thanks. Also, could care less if someone could beat me, as I don’t waste my time playing them.

    I hope Becca finds someone she loves and that really loves her. So far on the surface none of the guys really impress me but it is hard to judge by just pictures. I don’t do social media, so maybe showing yourself half naked working out is the thing to do. It just sends up narcissist red flags to me.

  29. tinyred500

    March 15, 2018 at 5:03 AM

    It does come across as a slightly forced agenda, unless she specifically asked, which I very much doubt.

  30. tinyred500

    March 15, 2018 at 6:01 AM

    Shoo fly?! 🙁

    Recent comment threads have become a bit of a ‘pick-on fest’. 🙁 It’s becoming joyless. 🙁

  31. supersparklyday

    March 15, 2018 at 9:31 AM

    Seeing as how Arie has a “dad bod” and her ex Ross has a rockin’ bod, I’d say Becca is attracted to the personality of a guy over his physique. That being said, I predict there’s going alot of group dates where the guys are shirtless. They haven’t done a Pool Party episode in awhile. The show will objectify the muscles. They’ll be shameless about it, too. I cant wait!!!! Bwahahahaha

  32. tjudd

    March 15, 2018 at 10:16 AM

    Totally think so too! I thought that before even seeing your comment. Lol

  33. tjudd

    March 15, 2018 at 10:25 AM

    Ok! Thank you for posting that! I wanted to say the same thing!! If it were me, those guys would get cut the first night. I am personally NOT “into” black guys. Hell, most of the white guys would get cut too! Lol. David seems sweet & cute. One guy, I think Ryan is his name (from AFTFR) makes my gaydar go off!! Anyway, this season should be good. I mean, outta 25 guys, there’s gotta be a few that are easy on the eyes & not too vain, right!?

  34. tinyred500

    March 15, 2018 at 11:31 AM

    @tjudd, Lol I’d be the same!

    I might get lucky and take a fancy to 1 or 2, but then you have to keep all the others around and pretend you like them! Lol I’d be hopeless at lying, you’d have to go on dates and kiss men you didn’t kind of nightmare! Lol 😀

    katieottawa wins the prize for most unnecessary racist comments on interracial dating. Runner up is “Not Into Black Guys” tjudd. I know that this comment section is probably pretty white, demographically, but please people, let’s at least put a little bit of effort in…

  36. lucyw4

    March 15, 2018 at 2:44 PM

    As usual the comment section is far more interesting than the actual post.

    Btw…Becca just told Ellen DeGeneres that her celeb crush is Michael Strahan…she digs the gap.

    My pick would be Clay.

  37. raleighgirl

    March 16, 2018 at 7:29 AM

    She said on Ellen that Michael Strahan is her celebrity crush, therefore I feel like she is open to dating a muscular black guy and a lot of the guys are fitting

  38. mamaddict

    March 20, 2018 at 10:29 AM

    This comment thread is really gross and also completely ignorant to reality. Considering the fact that she’s identified her celebrity crush as Michael Strahan, I would think that she does, in fact, have an interest in interracial dating. And even if she hadn’t made that clear, the fact that you would automatically jump to the conclusion that it’s not something that she could possibly be interested in is a sobering reminder that we have come nowhere near as far as we need to as a nation.

  39. mamaddict

    March 20, 2018 at 10:29 AM

    I’m saddened by the fact that nobody seems to find this joke as funny as I do.

  40. unreal06

    March 24, 2018 at 3:56 AM

    Some of these comments are depressingly racist. People are people regardless of skin colour, and perhaps Becca is someone who’s actually capable of appreciating men as individuals, rather than based on how they look.
