5. Jed Wyatt: 25, Nashville, TN. Currently a musician in Nashville who has a recent single “Vacation” on Spotify. Attended Belmont University. My guess will be the early fan favorite and would be shocked if he doesn’t go far.

So besides being a musician, Jed is also, get this, a male revue dancer at the Music City Male Revue in Nashville. I don’t know if he still works there, but as of late 2018 he was. The red head in the second picture the guys are holding is apparently some girl on “Very Cavallari”:

First off, I’m sure I’m not the only person in America who would not “crucify” Cassie if she says sayonara to this douche. Seriously, stand by your guns chickie, he’s seriously damaged goods. Second, looking at the new guys for the Bachelorette, are the ones holding the babies “daddy’s” of just “uncles”? Asking for a friend…Love you Steve!
March 12, 2019 at 8:33 AM
I’m sorry. I have a hard time believing the whole fence jump/Colton leaving wasn’t scripted. Steve has insinuated (yet won’t disclose what) that Colton made a “deal with the devil” in order to get cast as the Bachelor. And I’ll bet anything that part of the deal he made was to do something unconventional and uber dramatic at the end. Could he have fallen madly in love with Cassie along the way, I suppose so…but I just don’t buy what they’re selling us. Colton has been gloating on social media for months and there’s been no sign whatsoever of having his heart broken recently. And hard to believe he could be so smug after someone dumped him then took him back so quickly. If I were him…or if it were all “real” he should be a lot more wary. And, if Steve wasn’t insisting that Hannah B is definitely being named the new Bachelorette, I’d have sworn that it was going to be Tayshia after seeing her new glam’ed up look last night. She was attractive during the season but last night she was drop-dead gorgeous, and typically the new Bachelorette gets a makeover…just sayin’

I’ve not seen last nights episode yet, but my thoughts and feelings about Cassie and Colton’s intentions for doing the programme remain unchanged, if anything they are more solidified.
I’ll look forward in hearing what Sharleen has to say about Colton’s season on Steve’s podcast. I’ve agreed with a lot of what she’s had on her blog so far.
Steve gets very defensive and a bit rude when people say he’s got a spoiler wrong. I’m sure most are just pushing his buttons to see if he takes the bait. If he was more light-hearted and humorous about getting them wrong, then I think peeps would just leave it. People like his spoilers and it really doesn’t matter if he’s not always 100% correct, you can still watch and find out what really happens.
March 12, 2019 at 11:22 AM
Said it before, will say it again. I come for the spoilers and snark. Steve nailed this season. Getting a minor detail on where something happened wrong is no biggie. Because he got what did happen right. We come for the what happened and when, not where it happened. The where is incidental to what and when.
Also, Chris Harrison came off as a giant delta bravo last night. Dude was smug and above it all. He is often likeable, but this season it looks like he’s reached his end with this franchise himself. Honestly, might be time to replace him with a female host. Because the behind the scenes stuff recently and how he has set a tone with the last few events has sucked. His disdain is clear. A freshen up with a new host would be great.
Hannah Beast is gonna be a dud. I’m sorry, but it’s gonna be a snorefest unless the guys bring the drama. She’s gonna bring the dazed and confused. But mostly the confused. I skipped last Bach’ette and probably will this one too.
Hannah G looked fantastic last night. It should have been her. Well spoken, emotional depth, and intelligent. Tayshia as 2nd choice. Hannah B 3rd choice gets it. Such a bummer.
March 12, 2019 at 1:12 PM
Maybe Chris just didn’t like or didn’t get along with Colton? I’ve heard on a few Podcasts that he hasn’t always liked the lead….sometimes it’s been obvious too. Maybe he thought Colton needed a few home truths as well … with his words to Colton of ‘maybe she (Cassie) isn’t into you’? Maybe Chris was just fed-up with Colton.
March 12, 2019 at 1:17 PM
If these were all of Hannah’s guys I’d say it would be between Connor and Luke P at the end, with Luke P winning. Hopefully the ones not released yet are better looking………….
March 12, 2019 at 1:22 PM
While I agree with most everything you said I disagree on the next pick for bachelorette. Hannah did look gorgeous last night but she Definitely does not seem to be over Colton in anyway shape or form. To me that would cross her off the list for the next bachelorette. How could she search for someone else when she’s not over Colton? I know it has happened before but I don’t think it would have been likely they would’ve picked her. I’ve been reading Steve spoilers for years! He’s hilarious and I love how he dissects this ridiculous show!
March 12, 2019 at 2:32 PM
There may have been worse seasons (not many) but this is definitely the dumbest one. The whole fence jump thing was ridiculous. Why even jump the fence? Just walk out the front door. This is Portugal, not some Kenyan lion reserve. Colton wasn’t fenced in. Just leave if you want. And, so what if he wanted to go for a walk to clear his head. It’s not like he was among crack dealers that would kill him. It’s just a walk. It was totally meant as some sort of dramatic piece to fill time…. and they had a lot of time to fill. And Chris most certainly wasn’t trailing right behind him. By the time Chris got involved (and got his hair and makeup fixed & got his pressed suit on), they knew exactly where Colton was. The live show with the guests, just felt like they completely ran out of things to talk about. Usually that setting would have been for the ATFR episode. So, now that they’ve done that, what’s tonight? Its not going to be two hours of Colton talking to Cassie. It’s going to be more guests, more stupidity, the announcement of the Bachelorette, and some drawn out scenes to fill time. So stupid.
March 12, 2019 at 3:58 PM
Why is this bizarro weirdo Hannah B the bachelorette? She isn’t compelling st all, no story, no appeal and is a straight up freak. At least Hannah G has a compelling storyline.
Hannah B roaring was one of the most unattractive acts ever witnessed on this show.
March 12, 2019 at 6:26 PM
Ugh, I can’t stand Colton. What a man-child with his big, fat baby face crying all the time. He’s so selfish, dumping Taiysha and Hannah and making it all about himself. Cassie was also cold in dumping him. She seemed unfazed about the breakup when she was packing up and leaving – can’t wait to get back to my family and friends. LOL Now she’s going to turn around and have a relationship with this man-child. No wonder he’s a virgin; he’s so immature or maybe that’s why he’s immature. Has never had an adult, intimate relationship with a woman before. It’s like he’s in middle school.
March 12, 2019 at 7:46 PM
Cassie is going against her dad – wooo hoooo
March 13, 2019 at 7:05 AM
I thought about the possibility of Hanna B being the next Bachelorette as well. And to me it was unthinkable because the last couple of times she was talking on the show she had a really hard time finding words, sounding intelligent and well spoken. I am sure alot of nerves can play in to it. But if you towards the end of your part in a TV production still have such an issue with communicating fluently and getting some kind of a point accross (that doesn’t sound coached). How interesting and sincere can you come off, if all eyes are on you to speak, have a personality, for a whole season?
And come to think about it. The only time she showed some kind of fire and drive when talking, was when talking trash about, being in conflict with another pageant girl. What does that indicate?
I sure hope she gets some coaching so it doesn’t just become huge smiles with little to say (beauty queen circa 1950s), with dreamy eyes talking about what you look for in a man. Because as it is now, it is hard to buy into the sudden ”but look at me I’m working on getting more depth than my pageant background has shown this far”.
That kind of huge change since just months ago when it looked like she was still living in a world where what was most important was that another Miss America contestant didn’t win over her. Nah, just doesn’t feel realistic to me.
I’d rather see someone seamingly more humble, witty, intelligent, already mature, from another season as an option actually. Like the blonde girl from Nashville that were friends with Wells. Can’t remember her name now.
I am probably totally wrong and Hanna B is just looking like a fairly immature pageant girl that turns into a mean gossip if someone else places higher than her (”I don’t want to talk bad about anyone else, but…” That kind of gossip where you say A but never B so you can get way with it).
Or there simply aren’t options enough for the Bachelorette and they thought ”well, she is coachable ta least”.
March 13, 2019 at 7:20 AM
Agree. The amount of times they tried to milk that whole ”he jumped the fence” and the virgin obsession, during the entire season. It just became like a joke in the end. Only not even funny. Talk about a hint that it actually was hard to push it as an interesting or great season with interesting people. When you have to use a jumping over a fence (what is the big deal) and someone being a virgin as hooks from start to finish.
