Bachelor Chris Spoilers

Where is the “Bachelor” Headed for Overnights & Final Rose Ceremony

A few things to get to today, most notably, something we’ve never seen in the show’s history that I can remember. I teased this in a couple tweets yesterday when I said that just when I thought the show was done with “firsts,” they go and completely outdo themselves this season. This one is a doozy. More on that in a bit. Also today I can reveal where the show is headed for overnight dates and the final rose ceremony. Remember I told you back in May I’d gotten a lead of what location bid on the finale for this season? Well good thing I never ran with that because it ended up not being where they’re going. Close to it, but not the exact location. It’s why I try not to run with information until I get complete confirmation, and I never could get it on that bit of information. Then the other day I was presented with the location of where they’re headed, and I knew it to be legitimate. I always knew they’d be leaving the country for overnights, and the original place I was told that put in a bid was Sydney, Australia. However, something obviously fell through since they’re not headed there.

The final four rose ceremony is tomorrow night in LA, then Friday Chris, production, and the remaining 3 girls will pack up and head to Bali for the overnight dates and final rose ceremony. They’ve never been there either so look forward to seeing that in the final two episodes.

Back in Des Moines, we all saw the pictures of Chris and a girl at his high school alma mater’s football game. Locals there were reporting her name was Jane, and since that was the first time I’d seen her, and didn’t know her full name at the time, I assumed her name was Jane. Close, but it wasn’t. It’s Jade. I was going to hold on to Jade for a while since I became well aware of her past the other day, but once country station KX96 in Lincoln, Nebraska posted on their FB page this morning, and I received no less than 10 emails about it, I obviously couldn’t keep it a secret anymore. There went that idea. Thanks KX96. So here you go.

12. Jade Roper: 27 (will be 28 Dec. 19th). Currently living in Los Angeles. Originally from Gering, Nebraska. What does she do? Well, her LinkedIn page says she’s involved in cosmetics. Also heard she works at a restaurant. However, even though the website alludes to it, it doesn’t include the pictures from when Jade once posed for Playboy Amateur. And has a 3 minute video to go along with it.

So yeah, this seasons “Traditional, Classic, All-American” Bachelor currently has a girl in his top 4 that was a wild child in small town Nebraska, moved to LA to pursue modeling, has representation, ended up doing Playboy, and a quick Google search can lead anyone to see her “work” without her clothes on.

    I agree Scout. Her meltdown at the end was surprising to me, because, the whole season she was cool, calm and collected. There was quite a visible difference in his body language when he was with April, as opposed to Trish. To me, he wants April, but she’s not ready.
    I guess we shall see next week !

    I feel like April’s reaction to possibly getting engaged in a matter of days is that she’s legitimately freaking her out, as she should. I question anyone, quite frankly, who is 100% sure they want to get engaged to someone they have spent a combined total of maybe 30 hours with, and only one night alone. It’s crazy. That said I think he’s still picking April. She works in Toronto now, her pic is even listed with her name at a company called so that’s kind of telling. The only other possibility is a Desiree and Chris style “Plan B proposal”, which I just don’t see.

  3. Scout

    November 13, 2014 at 2:15 PM

    oh I agree Vessel. Definitely a valid reaction for sure. I just like Trish so much more lol

  4. vessel

    November 13, 2014 at 5:54 PM

    I kind of hope he picks no one, although they probably won’t let him. He just skeeves me out so much. He looks like he’s trying so hard to be sexy and to me he just comes off as high all the time. I dunno I just liked Brad Smith so much better. Also his mom was kind of terrifying.

    Oh also I read somewhere that the finale is only half an hour long??? What? How does that even work? Don’t they usually get one final date before the proposal? And If I can complain one more moment where the heck is Tyler the host? It really bugs me that he made an appearance only night one and at the WTA. If they don’t have the budget to do the show right they shouldn’t do it at all, imo. It makes the Canadian version come off as the ugly step sister to the US one.

    @vessel….I agree, Tim skeeves me as well. He’s just very odd and robotic.

    I haven’t been able to watch the finale….still waiting for it to pop up on YouTube. How did you all watch it?

    Tim posted a shirtless photo on Instagram (he is so not sexy to me….unless I’m into screwing dead people), but if you expand the photo, you can see the outline of the person taking it and it appears to be April.

  6. shouldbeworking

    November 13, 2014 at 7:12 PM

    I just checked my PVR and for sure the finale part 2 is only 30 minutes long next week. That is so strange to me.
    Vessel – My husband said also that Tim looks stoned all the time !
    I want to find that instagram pic that bfw is talking about. Good sleuthing bfw ! As for his parents, it was odd that they were so calm about their son proposing to a woman he’s only known for a few weeks in total.

  7. bigfatwoman

    November 13, 2014 at 7:25 PM

    …..the person in the above mentioned photo (April) is reflected in the wine glass.

    I just finished watching. My observations are that 1). Tim speaks in S L O W motion and his eyelids mimic that motion. 2). Hello Tim’s Mom and Dad….the robot doesn’t fall far from the tree…..and 3). Listen to your instincts April….I think we have a serial killer. RUN!!!!!!!

  8. shouldbeworking

    November 13, 2014 at 7:31 PM

    He makes me very sleepy.
    Is the photo you are referring to the one where he is carving a pumpkin?

  9. Scout

    November 14, 2014 at 7:00 AM

    YES! I liked Brad so much more too! My husband swears Tim is gay lol. I’m not sure about the finale thing but isn’t there a version on an AFR too at some point?

  10. vessel

    November 14, 2014 at 9:50 AM

    @Scout yeah the finale is a half hour then its immediately followed by a half hour ATFR. Lame. We waited 2 years for this?

    And why did they not do a Bachelorette Canada? If they do decide to do one Trish would probably make a decent one.

  11. Scout

    November 14, 2014 at 9:56 AM

    @vessel, oh ok! that does seem short….
    I agree on Trish for a bachelorette. I don’t remember any of the first season girls outside of Bianka and Whitney (why are the crazies always from Calgary? lol)

  12. vessel

    November 14, 2014 at 9:58 AM

    @BFW I enlarged the pumpkin carving pic and I can’t see anything in that wine glass, is that the pic you were talking about? You’re good if you can make out a figure in that pic!

    I live in Canada so it’s on here every Tuesday night. Are all the episodes up on Youtube? My daughter is in University in CT and she’s been wanting to watch it and I told her I’d save up the episodes on my PVR for when she visits up here.

  13. Scout

    November 14, 2014 at 11:15 AM

    @vessel: That’s where I watch the episodes on my lunch break if I miss them on tuesday night! It has deleted scenes and other extra stuff too!

  14. punka

    November 14, 2014 at 12:12 PM

    Jade is a physically attractive girl, but it seems like she has some serious anti-social tendencies. Betting she has some personality disorder, because her actions are just not normal. Chris better run like hell from that.

    Oh and she was in Playboy and theChive? Bwahahaha. Total wannabe. I bet her sextape comes out, I mean gets leaked, within 3 months after The Bach season ends. Gotta strike while the iron is hot!

  15. vessel

    November 14, 2014 at 2:46 PM

    Thanks Scout! I’ve never watched any of the deleted scenes but I definitely will now 🙂

  16. bigfatwoman

    November 14, 2014 at 2:50 PM

    Yes, it’s the wine glass reflection in the cheesy shirtless pumpkin photo. If you stare at it for a bit you can clearly see the legs and long dark hair of the woman taking the photo. Clearly April.

    It seems obvious to me that they are focusing on April’s trepidation because she is the winner.

    I also think Trisha would make a great Bachelorette. She seems genuinely sweet, quirky and without pretense.

    I watch episodes on YouTube. Bachelor Canada has a YouTube channel and other sources post episodes as well.

    I also keep forgetting to say that April is classic child of a drug user/addict. She fears relying on anyone. Can’t blame her given her past.

  17. cjscjs711

    Is there any doubt that Miss Jade is in this for any reason other than publicity for herself and career? Rather than a hopeful wishing to move to a corn farm in Iowa and manage her modeling/nude career from a farmhouse?

    Interesting takes on April. Could be! Just like the producers tried to play up the “connection” between Andi and Nick – they like to do that. Plus Tim seems to be drawn to the ‘problem child’ – April, Lisa (whom he really seemed smitten with).

    I do totally disagree about Tim. Not a psycho at all. He’s a hard-working guy who worked away his young hours at a job instead of developing the right relationships – probably became entangled with another dramatic problem child or two for years of his life, and now he’s still single reaching an age where it becomes harder and harder to meet real marriage prospects.

  18. cjscjs711

    November 16, 2014 at 5:29 PM

    Pornography is in the eye and mind of the beholder. What I a saw of Miss Jade’s images I did not find pornographic. What I saw was just boring, canned, trying-so-hard-to-be-sexy footage.

    Kind of resent the implication that a successful fashion and beauty (and relatively inexperienced sexually) model (Courtney) and Jade an model engaging in erotics are the same. They’re two very different genres and the psychology of one is not for any reason necessarily the same as the other. If you read Courtney’s book, she tried very hard to make the long distance thing work with Ben, even losing income in the process. I have a hard time imagining a Playboy wannabe wanting to commute to and from a remote farm in Iowa to further her centerfold dream.

  19. cjscjs711

    November 16, 2014 at 5:31 PM

    And they’re GOT to have told Chris to keep the Jade one around till the end. Contrary to some, I’m dying to see how Chris’s mom and family will react to her. They seem like sensible people.

    It’s been 12 days since Steve’s last post. Surely the final rose ceremony has happened or is very close to happening. They left for Bali on the 7th with the F3. That’s 10 days ago. He must be waiting for confirmation of the final one before posting any more. It feels like hardly anything was leaked this season.

  21. diora

    November 17, 2014 at 12:36 PM

    Shouldbeworking, I agree, it’s been almost spoiler free so far. My guess is that his biggest source was removed from the Bachelor equation this year. I was hoping for an update by now, disappointed.

  22. meredith27

    November 17, 2014 at 1:44 PM

    He did post on Twitter for those of you who don’t follow him on Twitter that he did have an update and that he was going to post it this week sometime after he could verify. I agree that it’s been a slow update with irregular columns. But, what can he do if he doesn’t have anything to write about. Perhaps ABC is wise now and making it more difficult. We’ll see. I love following spoilers but I’m also never going to be disappointed if ABC outsmarts him somehow and he ends up being wrong. That’s fun too to be surprised and shocked like in Desiree’s season!

  23. vessel

    November 17, 2014 at 4:09 PM

    I’m disappointed with the lack of spoilers, too, but I agree @meredith27, he can only share what he knows. I don’t think we can really criticize him or call him a slacker if no one is telling him anything. I guess I wished until he had something spoiler wise to share he’d fill some gaps with daily links or even just weekly links would have been at least something for us to read here.

  24. mariet

    November 17, 2014 at 7:44 PM

    diora, I agree. How could he have SO much information on Andi’s season and practically nothing on this one. Someone moved on…

  25. mariet

    November 17, 2014 at 7:51 PM

    And cjscjs711, “Pornography is in the eye and mind of the beholder” ? That doesn’t even make sense. It is a defined, objective term. There is nothing subjective about it. Now, whether you are bothered by it or not, is another matter.

  26. julieann123

    November 17, 2014 at 8:15 PM

    I agree with you Mariet.

    My guess is that Chris doesn’t pick anyone.

  27. cjscjs711

    November 17, 2014 at 9:42 PM

    Honestly I don’t see anything pornographic in what was posted featuring Jade ‘modeling.’ It was just a lot of bad acting, trying to be sexy. I didn’t see anything I’d consider hard-core. The definition in court involves “average person”, “lewd curiosity, “offensive,” “without artistic value” – all pretty subjective.

    I’m reminded of one of the most famous quotes in the history of the Supreme Court by Justice Potter Stewart, “I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description [“hard-core pornography”], and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that.” Jacobellis v. Ohio

    From what I saw, I’d give her the benefit of the doubt – she might have been trying to be artistic, a good actress; but she’s just terrible at it.

  28. rob22

    November 18, 2014 at 10:07 AM

    So cjscjs711: how would you define pornography. If not showing the lady parts, does it require insertion into the lady parts? Exotic sex using alternative lady parts? A gynocological camera shot? A pony? Or all of the above?

  29. rob22

    November 18, 2014 at 10:08 AM

    I disagree that those saying that this hasn’t been a productive spoiler season. I mean RS gave us a great shot of the back of Chris’ head at the Shreveport airport. What do you want?

    O M jeepers….I just watched Bachelor Canada finale and After Rose…….cute cute couple.

    I think I officially like Bach Canada for how they don’t bore their viewers with tons of filler. The finale show was 30 minutes! I know this show is not intellectual….so I appreciate that they don’t even try. The host of Bach Canada, however, is just awful.

  31. Scout

    November 19, 2014 at 8:38 AM

    Bachelor Canada, Tim and April….I totally found them to be super awkward. Maybe that’s partly because I don’t like Tim at all, but I felt like April showed no emotion (to the camera, the audience or even to Tim at some points). I don’t know. I really couldn’t care less if they stay together or not. I just find them so … odd.

    @BFW, I do like that it is so “to the point” I love hour long shows. I find the american bachelor show way too long. So I liked that there was zero filler at all.

  32. shouldbeworking

    November 19, 2014 at 11:38 AM

    LOVED April’s dress on the finale last night.

  33. cjscjs711

    November 20, 2014 at 12:11 PM

    I found myself really liking Bachelor Canada and loved April’s finale dress. I do feel for the girl and hope it works out for them both.
