I think that was a fitting ending to those emails, no? Holy crap. These people are allowed to reproduce? Embarrassing. And you wonder why I pay no attention to anything other than what my sources tell me. Wash, rinse, repeat every season. I will talk about the show, give information that nobody has, be right way more often than not, while other sites will bite off this site and pray and hope I’m wrong. This is nothing new. I appreciate of all of you that come to my site year in and year out for your “Bachelor/ette” spoilers and information. You people are what keeps this site going. But I think you know I’m not speaking to you when I talk about the weirdos and doubters who just hate for no reason other than they can’t stand me being right. I don’t understand it myself, but I like sharing emails like the ones on the last page with you so we can all laugh in unison at how remarkably removed some people are from reality.
There’s just so many things about this season’s ending that we could talk about, I don’t even know where to begin. This isn’t a normal recap. I’m not going to break down the episode, because lets face it, on the finale the first 90 minutes is fluff. By the time we get to that episode last night it’s like, “Just get us to the final rose ceremony.” Not because you knew the spoiler, but just because it’s so long and drawn out with only two people left, and what they say to the parents really doesn’t matter. When there’s more people and more dates happening, the two hours flies by. On that final episode, it takes FOR-EV-ER. Can we do something about this?
I think everyone needs to stop putting so much stock into what is season in previews and commercials. How many times last week did I hear, “But even Chris’ dad thinks Becca is the one he wants, so how can Whitney be ok with that?” You know how? She realizes this is a TV show. I know I say that every season, and I know even a lot of YOU say you know it’s a TV show, but then you say things like that and it makes me realize I don’t think you really do understand this is a television show. Chris did not pick Whitney because Becca wouldn’t move to Arlington or she had hesitation. The show HAS to show conflict in the last episode and the lead struggling with their decision. You really think we’re gonna see a final episode where the lead says right from the beginning, “I know the girl I want. It’s a no brainer. No point in even talking to the other one.” Of course not. Yes, Chris had feelings for Becca. Yes, Chris said the things he did to her on their last date, but Jesus, he didn’t just go get engaged to someone else because Becca wasn’t ready. It’s television, guys. These people are told in situations what to talk about. And if Chris already knew he wanted Whitney, he still has to have Becca meet his family and go on a last date with her. And obviously Whitney isn’t the least bit affected by anything Chris said or did on the show (regardless of if she watched) because she’s over the moon about the guy. So lets not take every single word these people say so literally and make an assumption.
You do realize now after watching that final episode back last night it’s basically, “How COULD he have picked Becca?” I mean, did you listen to what she said? She basically said everything wrong to a guy she was hoping to propose to her. Was she being real? Absolutely. But it’s certainly not what he wanted to hear. So you hear Becca saying that all episode, Whitney is the complete opposite with how excited she is to be a farmer’s wife and ready to move, you know the spoiler since November of him with Whitney, and it was pretty obvious. That’s now back-to-back seasons where there was TONS of things pointing to the spoiler being correct and almost too obvious, and it ended up being right. So lets never, never, never, never ever say again after a spoiler is released, “Well, that’s too obvious.” No, because Josh was too obvious and Whitney was too obvious and they both got picked. So now the “too obvious” choice can’t be a reason to doubt a spoiler.
People are going to doubt every season. I get that. But I’m looking more at the reason that they doubt. Is it because they actually have evidence to the contrary? 99% of the time, no. It’s just because something seems too easy, or it’s a spoiler they don’t like, or they think I’m purposely being fed false info. You know, like last season’s plane videos with Nick and this writer couldn’t believe it for the life of them. Then even this season, you had a writer at something called the “Inquisitr” saying I just guessed the ending, and “Celebrity Dirty Laundry” piling out, yet neither had anything to back their stories up with. Really? I’m just throwing darts at a dartboard with my reputation on the line? Probably not. It’s just horrible journalism on their part. And no, I don’t care that I’m drawing attention to them today since that’s exactly what they were after, because no one goes to those sites for spoilers and info about this show anyway. I’m just pointing out how ridiculous the “gossip” coverage of this show gets, and how easy it is to discredit something even if you have zero info to back it up. Really go read those two articles and see how horribly written they are. It’s one thing to doubt, but at least have a reason why you doubt. They have none, and end up being proven wrong.
Every season people are going to make a case for whoever it is they want to win. And you know what? It would TOTALLY makes sense if the show wasn’t taped. If Chris didn’t make his decision in that barn, and we were told he’s going to announce who he’s gonna pick live at the ATFR, then yes, every theory, hand gesture, facial tick, PDA, and anything else you can think of could be analyzed a million times, because it could lead you to determining who you THINK he’d end up with. Would it give you a clear answer? No, it’d still be speculation. But at least it wouldn’t be waste of time since the decision wouldn’t have been made yet. The show ended filming on Nov. 22nd and you knew the winner on Nov. 24th. Not because of a guess or a prediction. I don’t do this just for sh**s and giggles. This is my job. I take it seriously. After what happened on Des’ season, I made sure I wouldn’t get lazy again, and I haven’t. Did I have the first 5 episode-by-episode spoilers? No. Did it affect the ending spoiler? No. So people can create whatever argument they want, but in the end, no one knows the who/where/why/how I get my info, so it’s pointless to dissect. All that matters is know that I’m working pretty hard behind the scenes not to give you wrong info. I would not run with “Chris is engaged to Whitney” two days after it happened if I wasn’t absolutely positively 100% sure. Just know that.
Every season is a new season. Next season I might have every detail of every date and every elimination 2 days after the final rose ceremony tapes. Or it could come sporadically. Or I could get the first half of the season right away and the rest of the season later. Going in to every season, I really have no clue where my info is going to come from. Sometimes I’ve gotten repeat sources, but not all the time. It all depends on so many factors that obviously I can’t talk about. But I will give you what I have, when I have it, as long as I’m confident enough to go with it. If you see it in this column, then I’m led to believe it’s true. If I don’t print it, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, just means I didn’t hear about it. Or on the flip side, I might tell you something happened that’s never shown. That’s happened quite a bit over the years. I’m just the middle man in everything. I’m only as good as my sources since I don’t work on the show, never have, never will, and outside of Marcus’ hometown date last year, I’ve never seen anything first hand. So I will continue to deliver to you every season until this show goes off the air the best spoilers and information about this show that you’ll find on the internet. That’s a promise. I appreciate all of you who stick by me every year. Feels good to be vindicated like last night and be recognized by so many of you on Twitter. I appreciate it.
