Bachelorette Desiree Spoilers

The Bachelorette Desiree’s Episode-by-Episode Spoilers

Episode 5 (airing June 24th): Munich, Germany (11 to 8 )

1-on-1 date: Chris Siegfried. They toured the city of Munich then ended up with a private concert from pop artist Matt White. Chris gets a rose.

Group date: 8 guys (or 7) went sledding down highest peak in Germany. Brooks, Drew, Juan Pablo, Kasey, Zak, James, and Mikey were definitely on the date.

Bryden eliminated himself early in the week in Germany (not sure if it was before or after the group date happened) because from what I was told “just wasn’t feeling it.” Hmmmm, interesting. I guess that could be the reason. Or maybe the fact that Becky Weidow was waiting for him at home. She posted a picture of them kissing on her Instagram account just days before he left for filming. Really? So she acknowledges the fact that she knew he was leaving to go on the “Bachelorette” by saying “I’ll be missing you” in this picture just days before he left…


…then ever since he’s been back, she posted numerous pictures of them together. You could’ve checked all those pics out on her Instagram account (djbeckyfresh), but within minutes of me posting this story back on April 24th, she’d shut her account down. So, I guess Brian J. and Bryden Vukasin will be competing for biggest douchenozzle of the season. Close race at this point. Do we go with Brian J. or Bryden, who knowingly was hooking up with what seems like his girlfriend right before leaving for the show, she KNOWS he’s leaving for the show, and doesn’t seem to care? I say tie for last. I find it funny when people make a mockery of this show. Makes my job that much easier.

2-on-1 date: Michael Garofola & Ben Scott. They spend most of the day on a boat, and even get to chill in a hot tub in the water. Michael & Ben did not get along. Mike thought Ben used his son to advance with Desiree and basically bad mouthed the guy to Desiree, yet she keeps Michael. Ben gets eliminated.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Mikey Tenerelli. Bryden eliminated himself earlier in the week and Ben Scott eliminated on the 2-on-1.

Episode 6 (airing July 1st): Barcelona, Spain (8 to 5)

1-on-1 date: Drew Kenney. Gets a rose.

Group date: Six guys suit up and play against a professional soccer team. Not sure what the twist is that the press release mentions, but I’ll let you know when I do.

1-on-1 date: This one I’m not sure of yet. I think it was Zak.

Kasey and James have a major confrontation in Spain. Apparently James has diarrhea of the mouth and basically will be the quote machine of the season. Constantly saying inappropriate things in ITM’s and what not. It’s not going to be a good season for James to say the least. Kasey has issues with him, he calls him out on them, and they have a heated argument. Kasey warns Desiree about James not being the right guy for her. I guess it didn’t work since both of them end up getting sent home.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Kasey Stewart, James Case, and Juan Pablo Galavis.

Epsiode 7 (airing July 8th): Madeira Island, Portugal (5 to 4)

At some point in Portugal, Lesley Murphy, Catherine, and Jackie Parr show up to talk with Desiree about her journey up to that point. Not sure if they meet the guys or not. If I had to guess, I’d say no.

There were three 1-on-1 dates and a group date (2 guys) in Portugal. Based on the info I’ve received, I’m pretty sure Brooks, Michael G., and Chris had the 1-on-1’s and Drew & Zak had the 2-on-1, but still not 100% sure. Remember, roses aren’t given out on the 1-on-1’s before the hometown date. Unless you’re Brad Womack and you break the rule to give Emily one.

Seems to happen every season. The last location or two before hometowns is usually the one I have the least amount of info on. But I guarantee after the first extended trailer for the season airs at the end of this Tuesday’s blooper special, it won’t be hard to figure out. Every season they give stuff away like that, and I expect this to be no different. It’s always fun when they do my work for me by gift wrapping the spoilers in a promo. Thanks ABC. You’re the best. However, the elimination is definitely right, as is everything from here on out.

Rose Ceremony Elimination: Michael Garofola.

Episode 8 (airing July 15th): Hometowns (4 to 3)

Chris Siegfried (McMinnville, OR) (Filmed April 20th)


Brooks Forester (Salt Lake City, UT) (Filmed April 22nd)


Zak Waddell (Dallas, TX) (Filmed April 19th)


Drew Kenney (Scottsdale, AZ) (Filmed April 17th)


Rose Ceremony Elimination: Zak Waddell.

    Wow, good job Steve. Can’t wait for the season to start! 😉

    Well done Steve. I personally don’t care about the minutiae of each episode, but I do care about the final two and the winner.

    Thanks for the info Steve. I guess I’ll watch another season of this stupid show.

    Also, please do an update on any news on Sean and Catherine. According to their tweets they are still very much together. After watching him on DWTS, I really started to dislike him. He and Catherine really seem to be enamored with D list celebrity life.

    So she picks the guy that is never gonna marry her. Again. Gosh this is getting old. Excited to see if that handwriting analysis of Pixie’s is accurate (and what everyone seems to be saying about this guy). Good Luck with that engagement.

    Why don’t you think you will ever have to buy them a gift? Have you heard things?

    ^He always says that, given the track record of these couples.

    Wow since you have clearly seen an advanced copy of the show, I wonder if Fleiss is going to try to come after you and the people who are providing it to you??? I’m sure there’s only a select few that have access to copies of the show right now.. be careful…

    This was a great recap. As a Utah girl, I’m amazed by how many bachelor/ette contestants have Utah connections. Now we add Brooks to the mix. Does he know Jef or Michelle Money? Likely, as we joke this is Small Lake City, after all. Even Diana last season was rumored to be Jef’s hair stylist. I’m looking forward to Brooks’ hometown date. I saw it play out on RS Twitter that day but no location details were disclosed.

    Like the viewing parties in Los Angeles during last season, where Chris and Sean surprised fans, Utah has a big fan base, too, with so many local connections. Maybe ABC will come visit this season!

  8. rob22

    May 16, 2013 at 3:04 PM

    Props RS!! I’ve been poking you a bit to get these spoilers out, and now you have. A little too much radio silence for my tastes, but bottom line…. You have delivered again. Some day when the statute of limitations is up, a column on how you pull this off every season would be awesome!

  9. kitkat29

    May 16, 2013 at 6:49 PM

    It’s funny. I just read something where she’s acting like she heartbroken. Either, she completely faking it or there’s already trouble in bachelorette paradise. I have a strange feeling that this guy isn’t ready for marriage. But who knows.

  10. Athena

    May 17, 2013 at 4:38 AM

    @kitkat29 – perhaps, but remember Steve said that she’s been coached to build up drama in those interviews, so I would tend to doubt any real problems so far, or at least not ones for public consumption.

  11. randais

    May 17, 2013 at 4:59 AM

    Congrats Candice!

    Well played Cochran and well deserved.

    I don’t remember who asked, Kasey maybe?, what I thought of “The Following” finale…well I liked it, personally. I also liked the Revenge finale and am looking forward to next season.

    SYTYCD has started, this show is so much better than DWT(wannabes and has beens)S, and The Voice is still going strong, still some good tv to watch.

  12. addicted2rs

    May 17, 2013 at 6:15 AM

    Question for my Revenge peeps:

    Does anyone recall the reason why Nolan wrote Carion? Seems odd it could be turned into something that would shut down the grid and all internet and phone from whatever purpose Nolan intended it for.

    I hope Daniel killed Aiden, but that seems like a stretch considering the marshal arts training Aiden has had.

    It would make for a pretty interesting love triangle if Aiden did survive now that Jack knows faux Emily is Amanda. She will have to juggle Daniel, Aiden and Jack.

  13. Sunnyside422

    May 17, 2013 at 7:37 AM

    I’ll take Emily/Amanda’s triangle any day!! All 3 guys are eye candy.

    Congrads to Candice. Kree was my pick all along, but not unhappy for Candice to be Idol queen. She is such a pretty lady inside as well as outside. Both were lovely in every way and I hope to purchase Kree’s album some day. Loved when she sang with Keith and Randy backing her also. Awesome. And Aretha…well what can be said about her that hasn’t been said in the past. Sadly the youngsters today who are totally into rap (which will fade quietly some day), haven’t had the pleasure of listening and observing someone like Aretha Franklin over the years. Very special lady.

  14. randais

    May 17, 2013 at 8:20 AM

    Revenge – YES, I can’t wait to see how the Amanda (AKA Em’s)/Jack relationship works out. I also like Aiden though, I truly believed he had her best interest at heart. I LOVED that she told him who she really is.

    I was heartbroken that Declan died especially now that he’s going to be a dad. Poor baby Grayson, doesn’t stand a chance.

    I’m not sure why Nolan created carrion, was he forced to?
    OH and how about Padma? Is she alive?

  15. karynr

    May 17, 2013 at 8:30 AM

    randais, this show is wonderful! The choreography and dancing can move me to tears. I’m in awe, at times, because the dedication and talent is so darn impressive. These kids put their heart and soul into their dancing and it is a beautiful thing to watch. I also am in awe of some of the choreography, and the interpretations of the storylines behind each dance.

  16. randais

    May 17, 2013 at 8:51 AM

    karyn – YES I LOVE it! My daughter danced most of her life and so we were totally immersed in dance for years, so I truly appreciate this show and we LOVE watching it together, when she’s home. When she isn’t, I enjoy it immensely, it’s a great show (minus Cat’s annoying accent and Mary’s incessant screaming :D).

  17. mommyof2

    May 18, 2013 at 9:45 PM

    Thanks for the spoilers, Steve! I love watching this show when I know who are the final 4 and on down to the winner.
    * Revenge- LOVED the finale! Love that she finally td Jack that she’s really Amanda. I hope Aiden stays with us and remains a good guy. I actually think she has more chemistry with him than with Jack. I could care less about Daniel, but heard that they are dating in real life.

    * GREAT NEWS!!! One of my favorite shows is returning for a final condensed season run: 24!!!! Yes, Jack Bauer is back!!!! I’m sure it’ll be awesome! Instead of 24 one-hour episodes, it’ll be 12 one-hour episodes that are each composed of a 2-hour timeframe, allowing them to skip minutes here and there. Can’t wait!

  18. realitybuzzed

    May 20, 2013 at 8:11 AM

    I can’t believe the episode-by-episode spoilers are already up! Nicely done! Also, I have been reading “Reality Bites Back,” thanks for the recommendation, Steve! It has been quite the eye-opening read.

  19. randais

    May 21, 2013 at 3:31 PM


    I still maintain that Zendaya should sweep this. There’s no discounting Kellie’s talent but Zendaya has been consistently stellar, classy and excellent. She deserves the ball.


    Holly won me over with “How Great Thou Art”…she killed it.

  20. lmleger1

    May 22, 2013 at 3:31 PM

    How do you figure that Desiree & Zak went to the premire to watch the movie “The Lone Ranger”, when the premire is not until June????

  21. randais

    May 22, 2013 at 6:33 PM

    Drat…..should have been Zendaya. Just goes to show you, it’s not about the “whole” season, if you can pull a rabbit outta yo behind at the end, you’ll win.

  22. Athena

    May 23, 2013 at 8:18 AM

    I think what it ultimately came down to in my mind when trying to sort out who should “win” when they were all so incredibly talented, is that Kellie is an “adult”, whereas neither Zendaya or Alexandra are completely grown up yet. There’s just something intangible about maturity that youth can’t completely express, no matter how talented. And, believe me when I say that I loved watching Zendya and was amazed by how talented she is.

  23. Sunnyside422

    May 24, 2013 at 7:25 AM

    Loved the fact that Kellie had no dance experience and took so well to the whole experience. Zendaya was cute/sweet but a professional dancer so I generally discount anyone who has this type of experience and go for the celeb who is a newbie to dance. Both were awesome and really like Val.

  24. ccrider

    May 24, 2013 at 9:03 AM

    Sunny….that is EXACTLY why I was glad Kellie won! There’s no doubt that Zendaya is a great dancer but that’s the point….she’s a dancer! Kellie wasn’t a dancer coming onto the show but proved she was worthy of winning it!

  25. bunbun

    May 24, 2013 at 10:43 AM

    Sunny and ccrider I agree with both of you. I thought she deserved to win and I voted for her every week.

  26. reallife

    May 24, 2013 at 3:00 PM

    REVENGE: I think Nolan created Carrion just because he could. Aren’t genuises like that ?? Always pushing their limits. And I love Nolan. I want him to have a love story next season. They better not leave him in prison !!

    IDOL: Good riddance Randy Dawg !! And congrats to Candice – the obvious right person won !!!

    DWTS: CONGRATS KELLIE !!! May this bump your career even higher and now you know you can dance !!!!

    BACHELETTE: Sounds pretty boring already doesn’t it??

  27. reallife

    May 24, 2013 at 3:07 PM

    Hey Steve, Jimmy Kimmel must be reading your blog. I just saw a video when Des is on his show, and he predicts Brooks as the winner !!

  28. rob22

    May 27, 2013 at 8:29 AM

    I thought the idea of a blog was to put out lots of interesting content to drive viewership. That viewership is paid for by advertisers through clicks or views. I’m not sure what model RS is using these days, but it’s not that one.

  29. strick432

    May 27, 2013 at 6:08 PM

    Sorry – but most of these guys on Des’ season are straight FUGLY!!!!! Only about 5 are even remotely cute.

  30. mitroffjr

    May 27, 2013 at 8:58 PM

    Thanks for your work. It’s so much fun watching a train wreck when you have the ability to analyze the trains before they crash.

  31. thedoctor

    May 27, 2013 at 11:00 PM

    I guess I don’t pay too much attention to the first episodes ( or really any episode), but some of the rejected guys did not even get the limo exit interview. Is that normal?

  32. randais

    May 28, 2013 at 4:46 AM


    Boooo for this show ending. What a great show and the ending was great. I’ll miss this one, so sad to see it go. Derek being a dad, didn’t see that one coming, well until last week, that is. Much like Nashville, this show was filled with talent! Speaking of Nashville, whoa. Deacon finding out he’s the bio dad for Rayna’s oldest and then crashing and burning after so many years sober. Gunner coming clean about the lyrics he’d been claiming not originally being his (I never really saw the big issue with this one since they were his brothers and his bro died, I think since he inherited his brothers things, they WERE his actually). Scarlett still frustrates me, she comes off as such a wuss in my opinion. Juliette, well she doesn’t impress me either minus the fact that she really can sing.

    New shows, who’s looking forward some new series/shows?

  33. gibber1

    May 28, 2013 at 6:19 AM

    How do the producers decide who gets an intro at the beginning of the season? What’s the purpose of only showing a select number of them? Are those intros to guys who end up going home?

  34. Sunnyside422

    May 28, 2013 at 6:33 AM

    Oh my goodness…what a sorry bunch of guys for poor Des. She deserves better. But then most “better” have full time paying jobs which wouldn’t allow them to waste 10 weeks or more of their lives on such nonsense.

    And she picked Brooks! Eck and double Eck! When he speaks, I cringe. I guess I am totally shallow, but I would say less than 5 are attractive. I focused on Chris (from what we saw). He looked too normal.

  35. kjopo84

    May 28, 2013 at 6:40 AM

    I agree that Drew Is a bit effeminate, but he’s cute. Not surprised she picks Brooks, with those gorgeous dimples. Excited to watch this season!

  36. kjopo84

    May 28, 2013 at 7:00 AM

    @SunnySide- although I find Brooks to be attractive and you clearly do not, I agree that most of the guys are NOT that cute. The Zach who wore a shirt has no neck and it drives me crazy. Kasey has a weird face, and the guy who was basically saying Des is his future wife (Brandon maybe?) had goofy spiked hair and no lips. The final four in my opinion are probably the most attractive guys in the bunch, so I guess looks DO matter in some instances.

  37. kasey31

    May 28, 2013 at 7:28 AM

    what the heck? des got stuck with the strangest group of guys i think ive ever seen on 1 season.. it almost seems like a joke! i keep comparing them to the men on emily’s season, and what a difference.. her best guys are equivalent to the other bachelorettes’ worst guys, and i don’t mean just in the looks department.. they’re all just.. weird?

  38. karynr

    May 28, 2013 at 7:42 AM

    kasey, I agree completely. What a strange group of men, and not just the looks! It will be interesting to see what happens once they start showing deeper conversations, if Des has what it takes to do the digging. I wasn’t that impressed with her last night, and I liked her on Sean’s season. I can’t put my finger on it, but maybe it’s just nerves.

    Brooks….really???? IMO he looks kind of sleazy! From the little I’ve read and seen, I can see why RS isn’t concerned about buying a wedding gift. Oh well…best of luck to them and let the trainwreck begin!

  39. iheartvino

    May 28, 2013 at 8:36 AM

    Karyn- yes!! I wasn’t impressed with Brooks at all last night. I’m hoping he’ll become a little more likeable as the season progresses. My friend and I were watching together and we kept saying that he looked like he needed a shower. Maybe it was his greasy hair that looked gross? I don’t know.

    I actually felt the opposite about Des last night- I wasn’t shy about expressing my dislike for her in Sean’s season and leading up to her season, but during last night’s episode she annoyed me far less (in the second half of the episode anyway!) and seemed a lot more genuine than she had in the past. She seemed more relaxed when she was having one-on-one conversations with the guys. But if she keeps saying fairytale, Cinderella, can’t believe I’m here, etc.. alll season, it’s going to be long one.

    I don’t recall a season where so many guys looked WAY different on camera than they did in their promo pics. In Emily’s season, the only guy I thought looked different was Arie, and to me he looked way better on camera than in his pics. But with Des’s guys, 5 or 6 of the guys were almost unrecognizable to me. Some of them looked way better in their pics than they did on the episode, in my opinion.

  40. iheartvino

    May 28, 2013 at 8:42 AM

    Randais, you’re not alone in your feelings towards Scarlett. She’s definitely my least favorite character on the show. Do you think she said yes to Gunnar’s proposal?

    Re: other shows, I watched the first episode of Motive over the weekend. It wasn’t bad.

  41. karidenise

    May 28, 2013 at 2:14 PM

    Yeah. Can you please make this shorter. I don’t want to read a full paragraph of witty sarcasm simply over Desiree’s predictable revisit with Chris over her last season, etc., etc. All of your commentary is good but it’s not practical. I don’t know that I, and probably many other readers, will continue reading such long articles. We LOVE you, please don’t change.

  42. jacey

    May 29, 2013 at 8:34 AM

    Caught part deux of TBrette HD/OD, so skipped the limo exits. Whoever said it looks like we’re being punked is right, but not just regarding the men this season — who, btw give off the creepiest of vibes, but the entire shebang seems contrived more so than usual. I know most will probably disagree with me, but as bachelorettes go, Des lacks polish and looks “propped up.” As Hollywood women go, she’s not that pretty. Add in the constant references to “she’s po’, she’s po’, she’s po’, and you’re not going yield much beyond weirdos and opportunist. And NOBODY there for the right reasons. Playing up the ‘Cinderella; angle was a mistake. Feels like the show is apologizing for who she is. The emphasis should have been on her triumphs despite some odds. And that mute-invoking, timid sounding way of speaking she’s developed needs to go the way of nearly all her ‘men.’

    It’s really sad… Was there anyone there who actually cared about connecting with that girl? From the look and sound of things, you could take her out of the equation and just have those vapid morons vie for roses. Most wouldn’t even notice her absence.

    That was painful to watch, and more than a little boring.

    Thank you, RS for the summation of the entire season. Save me a lot of time. 🙂

  43. katefredericks

    June 4, 2013 at 7:56 AM

    I really thought Des was going to be a good season! I thought I was the only one who thought this group of guys were THE WORST! Note to Chris Harrison: What the heck? Are you trying to trash this franchise? Whether RS gave it up or not, had I watched this sad season to the end, I would have been thinking about dropping your shows due to time wasted. Time to fire everybody and get new eyes on who is bachelor/Bachelorette, and the people you choose to put before them. As I sense the boredom in RS, the rest of us aren’t dumb.

    As the previous poster said so well, TY, RS, for saving me a lot of time!

  44. comicnerd

    June 13, 2013 at 11:48 PM

    Just to let you know, that it was actually Juan Pablo who got the VIP “Lone Ranger” with Desiree. I remembered because he had “wooed” her with his Spanish during the show down.

  45. bhriannarose

    June 17, 2013 at 5:08 PM

    Guess you owe AshLee and JR that wedding gift then, seeing as how they just got married last year…

  46. kimhouse

    July 8, 2013 at 6:21 PM

    I’m watching right now and Zak and Drew are about to go on a 2 on 1 date. I’m confused because there’s only 1 rose so I dont know how both can make it to final 4. Should be interesting!

  47. kimhouse

    July 8, 2013 at 6:39 PM

    Nevermind. I didn’t realize the one that didn’t get the rose didn’t have to leave immediately. No more confusion going on here!

  48. aaron1

    July 31, 2013 at 9:31 AM

    She is engaged to Brooks! Des’s brother is saying that Brooks does not win and he is technically correct. Brooks does not “win”. Nobody does. The show is over and then Brooks comes back at After the Final Rose. They either get back together at that point and eventually get engaged or they get engaged during After the Final Rose.

    To brriannarose: I think you’re confused. AshLee was on Sean’s season, and she’s not married to anyone. If you’re taking about JP and Ashley from Ashley’s season, they are two entirely different people. I have no idea who JR is (in relation to this show).
