The Bachelor 15 - Brad

“Two Outs, Two Strikes, Bottom of the 9th Inning. What Do I Throw?”

…that was what I wrote as part of my tweet this past Saturday night before I headed out to the movies to see “Just Go With It”. By the way, we can now add Brooklyn Decker to my “list”. I know, real shocker, huh? Anyway, why did I tweet that? Because this season, I’ve been pitching a perfect game. Every date, rose, elimination has been dead on since Day 1. I’ve even given you stuff that wasn’t even shown on the show (the Vegas tattoos, Ashley H’s ex boyfriend who died two weeks before filming, Brad kissing all nine girls on the Dr. Drew date, etc). So we’ve come to this. I’ve retired the first 26 batters without giving up a hit or a walk. We’re down to the last strike. One more out and I’ve got a perfect game for the season. So, what do I throw? If I were ever a major league pitcher, you go with your best stuff, so I’m going with the fastball. One problem. That fastball was deposited into the 15th row of the outfield bleachers by Albert Pujols and the perfect game has come to an end. For all you non-baseball fans, what does that mean? It means my sources have been wrong about the ending of the show.

Brad is engaged to Emily.

It’s been a crazy last 96 hours to say the least, but yes, it is true. Trust me, for the guy that has sat here for the last three months pounding on his chest and screaming from the top of the Empire State Building like King Kong that “Brad is engaged to Chantal”, the last thing I wanna do is tell you I was wrong the whole time. Well, I was. I apologize. We’ll get to the “why” and the “how” in a little bit as I give you a inside look into my last week. If there are still those that doubt it’s Emily and thinking well maybe someone is trying to fool me or throw me off, just think about this. Do you think after being wrong about Ali and Roberto’s ending, and having said it’s Chantal for the last three months, I would come out and admit to this different ending if it was just some hunch that I had? I’m more than 100% (if that’s possible), absolutely, positively, without a doubt telling you Brad is engaged to Emily and he has been since South Africa. You will see this on March 14th. I’m just glad I was able to get it to you with two weeks to spare, because in the end, this site is about two things in my opinion: Humorous, snarky, sarcastic recaps, and telling you what’s going to happen before you actually see it happen. Well, now you know.

There are a lot of factors that led up to this and me finding out about this ending last week, and I will get to those in a brief second. But let me first and foremost get some much needed apologies out of the way immediately.

To my readers: Sorry I gave you the wrong info. Wasn’t my intention. Had every reason to believe the information I had was right. My sources don’t lie to me. Apparently though, at some point, THEY were given bad information, which has been the case now in back-to-back seasons regarding the ending of the show. Were they PURPOSELY given false information? Impossible to know and ever prove. They say they weren’t, so I gotta believe them. I still talk to my sources, they are acquaintances of mine, and I appreciate what they’ve done for me in recent seasons. We just need to tighten the screws up a bit to get this damn ending correct next time.

To emailers: If at any point over the last three months, you emailed me something in regards to me possibly being wrong about this seasons ending, and I shot back with “I don’t know how many times I have to say it, Brad and Chantal are engaged”, I’m sorry as well. You gotta understand that it happens every season, and I really try and respond back to everyone who takes the time to write me. And since I posted the spoilers back in December, I had no reason to ever doubt I was wrong, so that was my stock answer to everyone who questioned the ending. I must’ve sent that email out over 200 times the last three months. I know now I should’ve either just ignored them or responded in a different way.

To Brad Womack: For having to keep a poker face all season when bombarded about Chantal because I reported it. Remember when I posted the audio clip of Brad on with “Kidd Kraddick in the Morning” here in Dallas a while back? At the time, I always thought it was weird why he was so complimentary of me and like “Yep, wow that guy is good. I don’t know where he gets his info from, but he definitely knows his stuff”. Because I’ve been so blind to everything the past three months, it makes sense now: Of course he was complimenting and propping me up…he knew I was wrong about the ending! He knew that when people kept seeing the episode-by-episode spoilers were correct, it would only add to the credibility I’d be right about the ending. Smart move, Brad. He played it well.

To Fans of Chantal: Sorry to burst your bubble. Whether you believed it was her because of what I told you back on Dec. 8th, or because of what you saw on your television screen, as I always say, never let the edit shown on television shape who you think is the one chosen in the end. The editors of this show know exactly what they’re doing in getting you to think and feel certain ways about people. Been doing it for 21 seasons, and will continue to do it. What we’ve seen them showing us all season is Brad’s incredible physical chemistry with Chantal, and awkward, weird conversations with Emily where he genuinely seems uncomfortable at times. And what does it all mean in the end? A whole lot of nothing.

To Emily Maynard: Actually, I probably don’t need to apologize to Emily. If anything, she should be THANKING me for taking the attention off her all season, because I’m guessing it would’ve been a hell of a lot worse on her if I was calling her Brad’s final choice all season. Which brings me to my final, and probably most important, apology of the season…

To Chantal O’Brien: For having to endure the scrutiny of being the alleged “final choice” all season long, when she knew for the last three months that she wasn’t. Of course, Chantal was going to get attention this season because of the slap, and because she made it all the way to the end, but having the “final choice” label thrown on you a month before the season even begins, and constantly talked about as the final one in my blog all season long, probably didn’t help matters.

So what happened? How was I led to believe it was Chantal for the last three months? I could talk for 10 pages about how everything went down back in November with my sources when they told me the ending, where I was when they told me, what I was told, why I believed it, how it came about, etc. I just don’t see the point now. It’s not gonna matter to most of you. It’s wrong. Doesn’t matter how or why it was wrong, it was just wrong. Just know, I have to trust what my sources tell me. I’m as good as the info they give me. We’re a team. They know a hell of a lot more than I do, and have been right pretty much all the time. So I don’t have room to question it really. They’ve been really good for two years now. However, I can be clear about one point. Even though you may find this hard to believe and it’s damn near impossible for me to prove it to you, trust me when I say the O’Briens did spend Thanksgiving at their vacation home in California. Brad obviously just wasn’t there as I was originally told. The fact of the matter is Brad has been engaged to Emily this whole time, and basically I put so much trust into my sources for the last three months, that I buried my head in the sand because I refused to believe I had the ending wrong. All the while, I missed out on quite a few things. Let me give you the timeline of last week to tell you how and where it all started breaking down for me.

    Everyone makes mistakes, way to man up.

    However, the continued FORT bashing here in the comments is in poor taste. I don’t post there but I am familiar with the site and while their screencap studying is a little odd and not anything I would ever be interested in participating in, I don’t see the harm in it. Who cares what someone does with their spare time? I like to go antiquing in my spare time, Steve likes to watch and write about the bachelor in his spare time, someone else might like to golf or knit in their spare time.

    We are all human beings and there is no need for the nastiness just because you don’t think what another person does is “cool” or whatever. Worry about yourself and what goes on in your house and let them do the same. Whenever you feel the need to comment about a person or group of people ask yourself this: Would I say this to that person if we were face to face? If the answer is no then don’t type it. Be happy and thankful for what you have in life not nasty and rude about others.

    Blondie, their obsession with sleuthing and studying screen caps is psychotic; that fact can’t be denied.

    By the way, are you “blondiegal” from FORT, or is it just coincidence you show up here to defend them and their neurotic behavior?

    Oh hank goodness we won’t be subject to the dullwitted, babytalking blonde bubblehead as The Bachelorette. Best TV news I have heard in a while!

    Brad, on the other hand, is never going to take her down the aisle..she’ll have bored him to death way before then. She won’t look like that forever, Brad, and then you’ll have to contend with her lack of personality, lol.

    Please take my opinion, as it is the opinion of a rational adult who knows exactly how fake this show is and does not take it seriously.

    You should not post spoilers on your site. People will continue to try to make you look stupid, and you will continue to discredit yourself to the media and discredit your second source of income.

    When the knob known as Chris Harrison goes on and on about how you have no idea what you’re talking about…well, this kind of stuff just makes people believe HIM more. And we all know that guy is a sad little man who will say anything to keep riding the waves of an ABC paycheck.

    People visit and re-visit your blog for your hilarious, sarcastic jabs at all the contestants. Spoilers or not, your recaps will always be the best part about this site. So enough with all these spoilers that turn out to be B.S. Use the blog to do what YOU do best.

    WOW! I love a good shockeroo…and this was a goodie. Don’t be so hard on yourself. No one is right all the time, but you are right a lot of the time. Love reading your site & you are always funny and entertaining. I am glad that the final girl is Emily, I liked her best…but am really curious why Chantal won’t be the new Bachelorette. Ashley is kind of bleh…not sure I would want to see a whole season of her. Anyway, keep up the good work!

  7. RuthyT

    February 28, 2011 at 6:54 PM

    So RS, how much is the network paying you to change you’re story now so they can try to do damage control? so you’re saying now that Brad did not spend Thanksgiving with Chantals family? I guess if you’re sources are wrong then they may be wrong again????

  8. glamourcat

    February 28, 2011 at 8:55 PM

    Steve Steve Steve…Glamourcat’s here for your sarcasm, not whether your sources are correct! I’m thrilled it’s Emily instead of Chantel except for the fact that Brad is such a douchebag! Chantel was getting on my nerves as much as Charlie Sheen!! She might want to look into counseling if she was really thinking Brad was only telling her how “Amazing” she was…Everytime Brad says Amazing we take 2 shots! Keep doing what you do my favorite Bachelor!!!

    Steve, you have made me the happiest girl in the world tonight!!!! I have watched Brads season after reading your spoilers and wondered how he could choose Chantal over Emily. And I’m sorry to tell you that I had hoped like hell you were wrong. Thanks for doing what you do!!

  10. Ellieanne

    February 28, 2011 at 11:34 PM

    Steve, don’t beat yourself up too much. I don’t think being wrong about the ending is the worst thing that can happen. Actually, it’s kind of fun to have a switch like this just when I was settling in, getting used to the idea of Brad and Chantal and thinking how horrible they are for each other. Now, it’s “Woo Hoo! The one I wanted to win actually did!! YESSSSS!” I’m happy! Chantal isn’t mature enough to even date my 22 year old son! As happy as I am for Emily, I’m a little surprised, especially since Brad was reluctant to be an instant family, but I think it’s sweet. Maybe Brad’s family just couldn’t stand Chantal and really talked him out of choosing her. Who knows?

    I don’t understand, though, why Chantal would turn down Bachelorette, even if it meant breaking up with a boyfriend (that wouldn’t be a first for her). She seems to be the type that loves attention, and to be getting it from 25 men, well, I’d think she’d jump at the chance. As bubbly as Ashley is, I don’t see her as a Bachelorette, but maybe that’ll change when the season begins.

    I think what you do is amazing. It would probably defy the laws of statistics for you to be right 100% of the time, so to be right as many times as you are, is really wonderful. Keep writing, posting, tweeting, FB’ing and keep the spoilers coming!! I loved this little unexpected twist. Makes me more excited to watch the last few episodes!!!

    Don’t ya just hate those ‘curve balls’..specially in the 9th inning? 😉

    Seriously…no big deal..I watch the show..I read your “spoilers” and altho I enjoy both..neither are a “Cure For Cancer”.. would appear that your “sources” are being “set up” by the powers-that-be to give you ‘false infos’..2 seasons in a row can NOT be just ‘coincidence’..

    I’m guessin somebody..somewhere..knows who your sources are and have decided to ‘play the game’ with them & you..jmho

    Regardless…CHANGES make life interesting..keep on doin what your doin as long as you enjoy could never satisfy all your readers anyway.. 🙂

    Hi Steve, it’s Team Emily all the way! My reasoning simple 1)never believe the producers, they are out for themselves, that’s their jobs! 2)Brad has had the spark for Emily right when she got out of the limo 3)Emily is so sincere and so is Brad, I can’t see him saying goodbye to her, as someone on the show has already mentioned, “Emily who could hate her, she’s like Mother Theresa!” 4)Emily has not been needy, rule #1 all you girls out there, GUYS DO NOT LIKE CLING ON GIRLS!! Every guy, doesn’t matter like the girl to be some what independent yet still be a COMPLIMENT to her guy! 5) if you take notice that in almost all dates where Emily is present, Brad is reassuring her, even if she doesn’t need it 6) he also admitted he feels shy around her (like a school boy), so in essence he is humbly saying he would love to be with a confident woman like her 7) and of course Steve the biggest give away is that he tells her he loves her! and finally he stated that not only is he a happy man but feels like he is a school boy dating again and of course Emily had that kind of relationship with her first love, Ricky. So, basically in both cases Emily makes each guy feel like 2 kids beening in love!!!

    Ya know…I’ve been watching Emily and Brad all season, and I just couldn’t figure out when the bomb was going to be dropped. Every time I’d think that something would happen. That Emily would have a hard time moving forward, that she wouldn’t let Brad meet her daughter. And the whole time I was watching, I just couldn’t see Brad with Chantal. After seeing the hometown dates, I thought for sure that he picked her for the money in the end. I actually feel kinda bad for thinking that now.

    RS, don’t worry about being wrong. I still love reading your recaps. They are hilarious, and part of the reason that this blog is so much fun. Even if you don’t make predictions in the future, I do hope that you continue writing about The Bachelor. I will continue reading. *hugs*

    March 1, 2011 at 3:58 AM

    I love the recaps and the spoilers but particularly the snark.
    So the upshot is that bland and boring Brad has picked blond and boring Emily. WHAT A FREAKING YAWN!
    Come to think of it, Brad did say he chose someone who he could be himself with so the only conclusion I can draw is that he is as wooden, boring and uncomfortable in real life as he is on screen!
    Chantal and Michelle were the only two to add any life to this tedious season, but this hasn’t stopped the judgmental harpies over at FORT venting all season about them for essentially not being as perfect as St. Emily. (You know her, the unwed mother). Oh, how I love the stench of hypocrisy from the good christian types!
    And how they love to hate on you, which can only mean you must be doing something right!
    Your track record speaks for itself, so while I probably won’t waste my time watching this lame show again I will always come here for the snark.
    Thanks Steve for your hilarious take on reality.

    The people at FORT viciously hate on Steve and were practically orgasming at the thought that he was wrong…

    I feel free to judge away as far as they are concerned 😀

    Maybe you should go post your advice to them. What has been said here is NOTHING compared to their comments.

  16. lizzie

    March 1, 2011 at 5:04 AM

    Hey RS thanks a lot for posting this! Things make so much more sense now: Brad is so visibly taken by Emily that it was hard to believe that he would choose anyone else…

    So, who cares if you were wrong before? You still got it TWO WEEKS before the finale aired. This blog rocks! Keep us the good work!

  17. Dianne

    March 1, 2011 at 6:49 AM

    mmmmm..interesting that the man himself, Mike Fleiss, has posted a comment here. I wouldn’t be the least surprised if it really was him. He was out for revenge on Steve, he feels he got it, now hopefully he’ll go away. Can you imagine being THIS immature, insecure that you have to go on a mission to TRY to mess up someone’s blog (namely this one)??!! Mike, Mike, time to grow up a notch. You do you job (as bad as it is), and let Steve here do his. Deal? Good stuff.

  18. penguinfan01

    March 1, 2011 at 7:31 AM

    Hi Steve…still love your work. I knew that Mike Fleiss was going to pull out all stops to discredit you, and that means doing what he has to do to find out who is feeding you info. He has a deviate mind, and I am sure that he gives people on his staff scripts with different versions and endings to try to trap them. I told you before, don’t underestimate this man, he is a snake, and will do everything to try to feed you the wrong info. I still love your site, it makes the season exciting. ABC should thank you, since this season was a snoozer. Brad is the most boring person they could have possibly brought back.

  19. Kati

    March 1, 2011 at 8:57 AM

    Why is everyone posting how glad they are that he chooses Emily….we won’t know who Brad actually picks for another two weeks!

    All of what is said in this article could easily be disproven. Its all hear-say, anonymous emails and sources that have (obviously) been wrong before. How do we know they aren’t trying to throw you off?

    “‘I’m rooting for Emily!’ and he said ’so am I! But you didn’t hear me say that.’”…..couldn’t this more mean that he is rooting for her to find someone? Plus, with how private they have been I seriously doubt he would have made an out of the blue comment about that to someone he barely knows (even if this person says they are “friends” seriously? if it was a “friend” it wouldn’t have leaked out onto the internet.)

    Brad thinks Emily is a “Firework”? Really? Its a video of guys goofing off that probably has NOTHING to do with either girl that he picked, considering he was down in Cabo drinking with some friends…come on RS, you have to admit, that was reaching.
    I believe you were right the first time, I think it will end up being Chantal…if I’m wrong, Oh well! Mine is an opinion and a guess considering the producers have been throwing Emily in our faces since this season aired, they will want some upset or this wouldn’t live up to being “The Most Controversial Season of the Bachelor Yet.”

    I think that you should report spoilers up until the finale, all of those are always solid and entertaining…I think your sources and everyone else tries to mess you up on the Finale episode so maybe you should stop making them “spoilers” and just make (what you think) is an educated guess as to who will be the Final girl.

    March 1, 2011 at 10:30 AM

    Admittedly, your snark and wit has me returning to your site for recaps and commentary, not so much the spoilers. I try to avoid the spoilers, but that is futile. I would like to remind everyone that you are not kidnapped and forced by the communist regime to read this site, so if you prefer another, feel free. I also would like to say I detect a very different RS in this blog than I did in your related blog when you found out you were fleissed regarding Ali and Roberto. Much better retort this time around.

  21. chynook73

    March 1, 2011 at 10:39 AM

    …And another thing. It makes so much more sense that he picks Emily. Everyone can see how he looks at her, and then he told her last night he was falling in love with her. I just couldn’t believe it that after all that, he still picked Chantal. But coming here today, I am not surprised to find out it is Emily. But Ashley as the next bachelorette? Uh, no. I won’t be tuning in. I mean, she didn’t have room in her life for Brad, why the Bachelorette? She is so young and unrelatable….and annoying. I won’t watch her. Now Michelle? Pass the remote and set the DVR!

  22. AlliCat

    March 1, 2011 at 10:49 AM

    Oh my god; the very, very best part of last night’s show? When Ashley was getting in the limo, right after he sent her home and Brad was all, “Ash, what’s the matter? Please tell me why you’re upset, Ash?” Um, hello! You just sent her home, dumbass! Of course the girl’s gonna be upset! Geez, sometimes I really would swear that Brad Womack is an alien.

  23. dutcheees

    March 1, 2011 at 11:28 AM

    So he choses Emily over Chantel? This is excellant news. You know why? Obviously now there will be drama in two weeks, and another heart will be broken. Oh I love it! If Emily didn’t get chosen as the F1 she would have just gone off into her own little sunset and without hysterics said, “oh well, I guess I ruined another relationship”. But now with Chantel getting the boot, she will have a meltdown which will in turn make Brad panic and thus make him sweat and pace back and forth knowing he hurt soemone. I cannot get enough of that….

    It was so painful to watch Brad interact with both Ashley and Emily last night as neither of those relationships would have ever worked out anyway. They act like complete strangers with one another and none of them know how to communicate. It’s a beautiful thing isn’t it?? Although I will feel a bit sorry for the kid as she’ll get close to Brad and then when he bails she will be heartbroken. But fear not, it will be good practice for her as I am sure mommy will repeat this performance one or two more times down the road..LOL..

    Memo to Brad. Call Michelle and Chantel O and see if you can not only broker a truce between them, but see if you can work in a threesome…LOL…Now that is TV I won’t want to miss….

    I have no problem with your being mistaken on the endings. There’s not a whole lot you can do if your information is incorrect. It just makes the suspense greater to see if you were correct or not, rather than writing off the whole season as fait accompli. You have had every single detail correct on the everything else in these seasons, and I have enjoyed keeping up with your columns. I will continue to do so. Thanks so much for being such a classy guy through the whole thing.

I couldn’t wait for you comments on boobs mcblubber on safari! The camera kept switchng from the rhino to her! I knew today would be a good, hilarious read!!!! Who cares who gets the final rose????? Keep those recaps coming, damn it Jim! Lol!

    R.S~ you far exceeded a neccessary apology as well as an explanation! Hope you didn’t and don’t lose any sleep over it. I was HOPING you were wrong anyway, but what will the Lauren thing do to them as a couple?! I don’t see Emily putting up with that – she doesn’t need too. Thank you for constantly making me laugh with your recaps!

    Perhaps Brad DID meet Emily’s family and they just didn’t show us on the home town date.

    I haven’t been on the site in a couple of weeks, however after last night watching Emily and Brad together I had to check out the website and see if things had changed. I’m glad you were wrong.

    I’ve seen several people react to the person who commented moonlighting as Mike Fleiss…
    “LOL Steve. Maybe now you won’t be such a misogynistic, condescending prick who insults his readers. No wonder you’re single.”

    Get real people. Dudes don’t call other dudes misogynistic. And why would he refer to Steve by several terms that have often been used to describe himself. And…Mike Fleiss makes tons of money off single people. This was obviously written by a chick.

    I am so pissed of this new update, i cant believe he chose emily, come on people, are u serious? she is only 24, and she still has to grow as a woman. I was really rooting for chantel, because she is smart, beautiful and intelligent. As far as her being emotional, it is bunch of bs… are u telling me that emily is not? she cries every episode of her past and clearly has issues of her own. At least chantel showed her true side right in front of the camera… well that’s all i had to say, sucks for brad letting an amazing woman pass by.

    Hey, your spoilers are right SOME of the time, and that is better than almost everyone else! Besides, your blogs have more entertainment value than anything! Love your sarcasm, love your bravado! Love it!
    btw, I wish Brad would have chosen Chantal, Emily is WAY too good for him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    March 1, 2011 at 10:26 PM

    Steve – No grovelling necessary IMO!

    I trust you strive to be right and that your sources are reliable. Every time I read a spoiler I know there’s a tiny chance it might be wrong. No big whoop. Until yesterday’s show I would’ve sworn Brad picked Chantal. There’s no way he’d keep a mother on the show and risk the wrath of America. It’s too cruel to lead Emily or any mother on. So when he dumped thin lips (sorry but all she did was lick her thin lips all the time), I knew something huge was going on. The weird part is I see very little REAL or deep interaction between Brad and Emily. He and Chantal have much better communication (unless this is all editing). Sometimes it even seems like Emily is not really into Brad. So this is kinda odd, but whatever! If she’s happy. I think Emily is sexy as hell and I’m straight. He’d be damn lucky to have such a sweet and good woman. Better not fuck it up, you turd Brad. You really are a boring turd.

    And may I just cast my NO vote for Ashley being the new Bachelorette? Except for Michelle I can’t think of anything more nauseating. Listening to Ashley speaking like a teenager ad nauseam (like, I think, like I feel, it’s like, like, like, ugh!) for weeks on end? God please no.

    So anyhoe forgive yourself, Steve! You work really hard and provide us with a great blog and lots of entertainment. Thank you.

    I’m with Curmudgeon – even though it is really late in the season, you still “spoiled” the ending correctly prior to the F1 being announced. I for one am happy to hear it is not Chantal, and it doesn’t bother me in the least that I heard the news only a couple of weeks before the end – it is still prior to the end, so you technically weren’t “wrong”…..

    You may be 2 for 4 for the endings, but you are 98% accurate on all of the other parts of the show: dates, who goes home what week, etc. Who cares? If the spoiler is right, so what? If the spoiler is wrong, so what? I guess I thought pretty much everybody mostly reads your column for the snarky blogs. I know I do, and the spoilers are not this huge issue for me.

    If someone really cares THAT much, WOW. They must be just a tad delusional.

    ok-so there is a story that emily was never really engaged and that after ricky died, his family gave a ring from a previous fiance of ricky to emily to make it look like they were engaged, what do you know about this theory. Also the story stated that ricky and emily were never highschool sweethearts…

    Hi Steve, Ive been a reader of your columns for a long time. I really enjoy them. It does not matter whether you got the ending right or wrong, you had 95% of all the right information starting from the first episode.

    Will continue to visit your blog, whether u have spoilers or not!

    I started reading here long before you started doing “spoilers” just for your funny, snarky recaps. You not getting the ending perfectly right from the get-go isn’t going to make me go anywhere, especially to “FORT.” I have been over there, quite a few seasons ago, but I don’t have the time to spend all day looking for things – I have a life besides this stupid show. I think that place is for people with nothing else to do. I get all I need to read about the show right here, with plenty of laughs to go along with it! Just keep doing what you’re doing!

    I have enjoyed reading the RS spoilers for the past few seasons, but does ANY one else find it suspicious that two seasons in a row he was wrong on the ending and then miraculously released the correct ending RIGHT before the final aired??? I hate to be a conspiracy theorist but something more than “bad sources” could be going on here. It is odd that the sources are spot on about all the little things (like the tattoos, etc) that don’t even get aired but are wrong on THE MOST imporant spoiler – the ending. Not sure what could be going on but it is pretty darn coincidental. Again, I hate to be a conspiracy theorist but I also don’t want to be like those people who watch the Bachelor and believe everything they see on the show is actually “reality.” Sometimes you have to question things you see on TV or read in blogs…
    Despite all this I will probably still continue reading RS’s spoilers though for the same reason I still watch the Bachelor…it’s entertaining, it’s a guilty pleasure, and I lack of self control.

    OMG what the hell kind of spoiler joker are you? Obviously you don’t know what you’re blathering about. Give it up. There ARE other sites that actually supply ACCURATE spoilers. I mean for gad’s sake you got last season wrong and this season too. Go find another job cause you suck at this.

    Hey Steve,

    Haven’t followed you that long but I do enjoy your writing and your humor. Love seeing Maddie, she is so cute. No one gets it right 100 % of the time, hang in there.

    No, this is perfect. I loved knowing who was going home every episode but I have been wondering all season why he would pick Chantal over Emily. PLEASE keep the blog!! Did your traffic go down after being wrong last season? Doubt it…

    Your smart ass, snarky blog and recaps are to this show what Tums are to an old, fat man who just ate a chili dog with extra onions.

    I don’t care if you were wrong for 3 months. You make this show bearable to those of us who are unfortunately addicted to it.

    This season was yet another win for you. And when I say “win,” I mean it in the Websters Dictionary way. Not the Charlie Sheen way.
