The “Bachelor” Colton – (EXCLUSIVE) Spoiler Detail on Next Week’s Episode, “Women Tell All” Spoilers, & Episode 16 of the “He Said, She Said” Podcast with Ashley Spivey

Things are really starting to pick up now. I see this season kinda like I viewed Arie’s season. Pretty much boring until we got down to the end, and then all hell breaks loose. We got 4 episodes coming in the next 2 weeks, so it’ll all be coming at us fast and furious. One thing I’ve maintained since I gave out my first spoiler back on Nov. 28th were there were pieces to this season I was missing. I knew the basics of who got eliminated when, and I knew who Colton chose and their status now, but there were parts I just did not know. One of those pieces I will fill you in on today. It kinda goes hand in hand with what we saw last night, but explains a lot in terms of next Monday’s episode and how things start shaping up for the finale on the 12th. A lot of stuff to get to today with that, the schedule break down for the next two weeks, and what happened at the WTA taping this past Friday. Usually those shows are pretty filler with not a whole lot of substance, but this one definitely had it’s moments. A lot to get to today, and the recap of last night will be a tad shorter because next week’s episode information and the WTA, I feel, is more important than really what we saw last night. So before we get to all that, a few things to go over…

“Temptation Island” episode 7 airs tonight and we get the aftermath of Evan and Morgan’s consummating their relationship. Tonight is by far the most emotional episode of the season as it centers around the :30 video message the couples can choose to leave for each other. Or not. I can tell you that not everyone gets a video message from their significant other and that is basically like a knife to the heart. And even the ones that do are a crying mess. Tough one to watch if you’ve invested yourself in these couples. In this preview clip for tonight’s episode, after Evan’s sex with Morgan, he asks John if that makes him weak:

Episode #16 of the “He Said, She Said” podcast is now up. You can listen to today’s podcast on a number of platforms, but you can also tune in by clicking the player below:

Ashley joins me to talk about her trip to Idaho last week. Then Amanda in New Jersey calls in to say that her husband doesn’t last long during sex and the call goes completely off the rails (4:39). Emily in Dallas then calls in with a very tough call about how husband’s comments about her weight has essentially ruined their marriage & sex life (44:30). Original theme music provided by Kate Bass and the song is titled “Blink.”

I’d say this podcast I revealed more about my personal life (in particular, my past sex life) than any previous podcast. I already know I’m going to get sh*t for this but oh well. I just hope people don’t take it out of context. It was a fun, joking thing I did with my ex. This wasn’t something that had to be done every time. But Ashley sure is having field day with it as she’s already made up a new playlist for me on Spotify. Just listen, and you’ll hear what I’m talking about.

One omission from last night’s episode was what I reported two weeks ago, and that was that Hannah B. showed up in Alabama after Colton’s hometown with Hannah G. to talk to him. We saw the clips of it in the season preview, yet it’s never been shown. So yes, it definitely happened. They just chose not to air it. You can speculate why, but since you can make a case on both sides that it could play into her being the next “Bachelorette” or it could play into them NOT casting her, it’s all speculation at this point. I don’t know why they cut it from the episode, I just know it happened and there’s video proof of it, because the only other time she could show up would be in Portugal, and I can guarantee that didn’t happen.

And remember a couple weeks ago I told you about a location in the US they were going to next season of the “Bachelorette?” Well, that apparently got out yesterday when this was posted. So an episode (which looks to be episode 4 based on the dates they’re looking at) at Gurney’s Resort in Newport, RI. Makes sense since they usually do an east coast city before heading overseas. Just look at the last 7 seasons:

Emily: Went from Bermuda in ep 4 to England in ep 5.
Des: New Jersey (ep 4) to Germany (ep 5)
Andi: Connecticut (ep 4) to France (ep 5)
Kaitlyn: San Antonio (ep 5) to Ireland (ep 6) – guess that was the anomaly. But they were in NY the episode before San Antonio
JoJo: Pennsylvania (ep 4) to Uruguay (ep 5)
Rachel: South Carolina (ep 4) to Norway (ep 5)
Becca: Virginia (ep 6) to Bahamas (ep 7) – ok, she got screwed a bit on travel as we know.

So lets get to what happens on next week’s episode and the WTA taping on the next few pages…

    Well,Matt had to do whatever it took to save his daughter from throwing away her virginity, right? Oh, the irony.

    I decided to go spoiler, because this series has been so horribly bland. I actually love the ending and wished we had more of these type of endings. I also like the fact there isn’t the usual 3 overnight dates (yes, even those who say they’re just talking, it still isn’t a good look IMO, especially if the Bachelor wants to propose only days later, just eww). Far more realistic and with unpredictability added, makes it’s far more interesting.

    Hail ye Mr Randolph for saying not only the truth (of how this series works), but stating the unrealistic expectations of it. I totally agree with RS stands on this. I know we’ve had other parents and siblings who have aired concerns, but none have actually stated as much as Mr Randolph, then again they may have said it…it just never made air. Mr Randolph will be remembered for saying how it is, and having it aired. The only thing I would question with the non proposal, is whether this too is part of Colton’s narrative as well as Cassie’s? Is he ready to be engaged, going on his personality and with what I’ve seen, I’d say no.

    I agree with above statement, definitely too short a time to be engaged, give them time to really know each other.might just end up engaged in future. Props to Mr R and Cassie. I do think Colton and Cassie make a cute couple and wish them the best in their future

    Said it before, say it again. If they want this to seem more “real”, and I’m not sure they do, they change the ending up. Swap it to 3 go to the leads family for hometowns, then once down to 2, go visit the girls family, then fly out to the fantasy suite location and do overnights with the same 2, then final rose. Imagine all that buildup and stress on those final 2 girls. With more time comes more pressure.

    Having the lead ask 4 dads for permission is absurd and so cringeworthy. But 2? Still absurd, but far less so.

    This ending will be the best since Brad Womack, made less so since Colton does end up dating Cassie. But if they;re done by AFTER? Epic.

    I definitely think the final weeks should include no more than 2 girls. I think they should start episode 7 with the final 2. That way the lead and the viewer gets to know the final 2 far better, and they just might get more couples that end up staying together. However, this is a show about drama and ratings, and I’m not sure if the producers would ever make it easier for a higher couple success rate a priority.

    Caelynn says in the car that Colton said he wasn’t feeling the same. We didn’t see that part, so we know their conversation was edited. It was more than a one sentence conversation on his part. I’ve seen it pegged as such in other places today, but I’m surprised to see that coming from you. You know how this works.

    The episode last night was just one more absurd episode. Definitely it’s a bit off-putting that not only did Colton tell each Dad that he was “falling in love with their daughter”, but he appeared to do so while looking them right in the eye. I took that to mean that Colton is a pathological liar. Either that, or he’s one confused person. No, I don’t buy it that you were falling in love with all 4 girls. You certainly weren’t feeling it with Caelynn, that’s for sure.

    I agree with @stratosphere in that we don’t know that Colton didn’t say anything since it could have been edited out. Probably was. But I also thought it was more honest to be silent than to throw out some of the excuses others have used. There isn’t anything you can say. But, in reality, what breakup really goes down like that with no explanation? None that I’m aware of.

    I don’t really see where the show is going to be able to fill 6 more hours of programming, plus the WTA with what they have left. This is really going to be drawn out and painful. Not the Cassie/Colton stuff. I’m beyond caring. It’s going to be painful for the viewers. Its’ going to go on and on and on. And btw: props to Cassie for checking herself and leaving. If her Dad can sway here that easily, then you’re really not into the guy. But boo for Cassie coming back. I assume there were cash and prizes involved in that decision. Oh well, a girl’s gotta eat I guess.

    I don’t think Mr Randolph is so much a hero I just think he expressed doubts that every parent would express and producers decided to play it up and run with it as part of the narrative. Mr Randolph is then flown out to Portugal as a puppet to add some further spice on this producer inspired “stance.”

    You don’t think the other parents reluctantly gave permission? Of course they let Mr Randolph run with his stance – they knew Cassie wasn’t on board.

    This is producer manipulated down to the bone.

    The entire franchise is manipulated to the bone. Every rose ceremony until maybe the final 4 is. Then maybe the lead has total control. But not until then at hometowns. It’s all contrived TV drama, like the Kardashians. Little is real about it. Especially the contestants. So fake.

    Hilarious that Tayshia was on a vacay with her SO weeks before, and is calling others out for fakeness. Cassie was on another show herself barely before. Hannah G is thirsty for Insta fame. Just hit her agent up everyone. And Caelynn is a pageant girl–enuf said.

    The cluster is what makes the viewing hilarious, awesome and cringey all at the same time.

  10. tinyred500

    February 26, 2019 at 2:08 PM

    I honestly don’t think the lead ever has total control, even with the last 2 females/males, there’s a narrative to be played out which the producers/editors want.

    As always you’re awesome Steve! I wouldn’t even watch the stupid show if it wasn’t for you! Totally agree with you on Cassie’s dad and his standpoint. I’m probably one of the few older people watching this crazy show-there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that as a parent I would’ve said the same thing to my daughter!

    Perhaps it is just me, but I sure am disappointed in the outcome of this season. Cassie is the one of the final 4 that I felt Colton had the least chemistry with. I have been thinking for a while (before reading the spoilers) that he might choose Tayshia all the while thinking he had the most chemistry with Hannah G. from the start.

    No matter who he chose, I seriously doubt the relationship will last long. He has shown himself to be pretty fickle and hop from woman to woman on what seems to be a desire for media attention more than a genuine interest in the women. The virginity angle has been greatly overplayed as well. Personally I don’t believe for a second that he is actually a virgin. A good looking former NFL player with women falling all over him – uh huh, sure, totally hasn’t had sex with any of them.

    We can put Colton in his proper place in a long line of Bachelor contestants picking the wrong woman. They always do.

    Have you seen Callie and her sister’s instagram? There is no way Daddy Randolph isn’t working with producers on this. He and his girls want those girls to be stars. Some dad can’t just jump on a plane and show up at filming without production’s aiding and abetting. The whole time it has seemed they have been moving in the direction of Colton remaining a virgin after all of this. And no doubt in my mind that both Caelynn, the bad actress, and Cassie only wanted to be Bachelorette.

    This season should be named the Colton showering show. Guess they went for the base, since there has been nothing else interesting. I do agree Colton telling every parent he was falling in love with their daughter wss cringe worthy. He is just playing the game. Happy to hear he may have said something to Tanisha, because that was painful to watch. Will be surprised if he and Cassie are still dating a week after the end. I think Hannah will be the next bachelorette. She had no drama and has the Barbie doll look they, and a lot of men like.

    I meant said something to Caelynn.

  16. notimpressed

    Hannah B would be a horrible choice for bachelorette.

    That’s all

  17. notimpressed

    February 28, 2019 at 8:29 AM

    Also, Colton is not a good decision maker as far as I can tell.

    He kept saying he is scared of being rejected, but keeps going for the girl (Cassie) who clearly isnt ready and is primed to reject him. He did this to himself. The other girls IMO were pretty great candidates. We have all liked someone but the timing wasnt right, and that is what this is…she never expected to go so far and has never told him she loves him.

    Its his fault for being so overly emotionally invested in her when its pretty obvious she is the one who wants to “keep her options open” and doesnt want to commit to being with him.

    I agree, about Hannah not be good. But, they don’t seem to care about that. They picked Colton who is boring as hell.

    First, I’m so happy he did not pick Tayshia! I think she is so fake. That tattletale business is just gross, especially when you’re relaying it third or fourth-hand just to make yourself look better. And Kirpa and precious Miss Hannah G even chime in. That should be the one red flag to send those **b*****s** home. And definitely no Bachelorette pick for Tayshia or Hannah G. Watching Hannah G feels just like scratching a chalkboard with my fingernails. And Tayshia, basically the same. And no Kirpa, Nicole, Sidney, ugggg. I have a lot of respect for Colton and I hope he finds his happy ending with Cassie. I’m kinda sick of people talking bad about him being a virgin, when in reality that’s how it’s SUPPOSED to be! No pun intended there…

    Maybe so, but she joined in on the Cassie/Caelynn drama too. I don’t care how pretty or cute someone is, that is an example of being ugly on the inside. And that makes the outside not look so good. But that’s just my opinion…
