A lot of you haven’t been back to the site since Matt’s season ended. So just to get you caught up, here are all the spoilers I’ve posted for Katie’s season thus far. As you know, the last 3 seasons filming in one location has made it much more difficult to do the episode-by-episode breakdowns. On May 13th, here were some overall spoilers for this season that I posted about, with some updates to them after last night’s episode:
SOME SPOILERS/STORYLINES THIS SEASON
-Hearing that Thomas Jacobs is an early season “villain.” I put that in parentheses because that term is 1) shorter to use and 2) has taken on many variations throughout the years. Basically, he’s the guy that ruffles some feathers early on with the other guys. I believe he gets an early rose, thus making him look like an early favorite, that quickly wears out his welcome with some of the others and Thomas ends up getting eliminated in like episode 3 or 4. UPDATE 6/7: You can totally see by his edit last night, Katie likes him, he’s head over heels for her, and this is not gonna end well for him.
-Michael Allio is 36 from Akron, Ohio whose wife died a couple years ago and he has a son. Michael lasts long this season, but his exit I’ve been told revolves around his son. We’ve seen this before where people with kids get to a point where if they’re not gonna be picked, they might as well go home. I don’t know any of the exact details regarding his departure, I just know either Katie sends him home to be with his son or he wants to leave because of it. I believe he makes it to the episode before hometowns.
-This season is very sex positive, which should surprise no one. They’ve already started the season with a tagling “See what the buzz is all about,” which is in reference to Katie bringing the vibrator night 1 of Matt’s season. We already know by the first promo, one of the guys (Cody) brings a blow up doll the first night. I can also tell you there’s a group date this season where the guys have to show their “sex moves.” So yeah, any thought that this franchise was gonna move away from the sex themed dates, or numerous sexual innuendos we see season and season out, well, you can throw that idea out the window this season. There will be plenty of talk and dates that are sexual in nature. The sex thing is played up more so than normal this season from what I’m being told. UPDATE 6/7: Katie even confirmed on her media tour yesterday that a lot of dates centered around sex. Some joking, some more serious.
-Aaron Clancy and Cody Menk both live in the San Diego area. I don’t know if they knew each other per se, but, they definitely at least knew of each other and ran in the same friend circle. So one early season storyline is that Aaron went to Katie and told her Cody was a party guy, not really there for her, Cody found out about this and confronted Aaron. I don’t think it got physical, but, Cody ended up either getting eliminated in that moment or at the next rose ceremony. Aaron went home a couple one or two episodes later. UPDATE 6/7: Well this was blatantly set up last night as we saw Aaron confront Cody in the backyard telling him he doesn’t like him, yet, they never showed us why. Now you know.
-I guess the biggest “spoiler” I have for you is this: Katie is engaged. However, I don’t know to who. I know you may ask, “How can you know she’s engaged but not know who to?” Trust me, it’s possible. I’m just not gonna give up sources on that, so yeah, it’s possible to know one and not the other. Katie definitely got engaged at the end of this. And unless she breaks up before the finale, which I guess anything can happen, but she’s happy and engaged as we speak, so I’d expect that to last til the finale you’d think.
-Katie is definitely the most “social” lead we’ve ever had. I think she’s posted more on Twitter and IG since returning from filming than any previous lead. She’s done a Q&A, she’s hanging with Bachelor Nation people and posting about it every time she does. So that’s definitely different from what we’ve seen in the past. Now that it’s out there publicly she’s engaged, I can see her posting and doing things that make people think that’s not the case, or try to act single or whatever, but don’t be fooled by it. She’s definitely someone that’s gonna have fun with the social media aspect of this show, which we never see from past leads. She knows what she’s doing. I just wouldn’t read too much into everything she does. She’s happy and engaged from everything I’ve been told.
On Sunday, I was able to confirm Katie’s final four for this season that I posted on all my social media accounts:

I still do not know who won. I’ve heard quite a few things in regards to this season, but nothing I feel comfortable running with yet because I haven’t gotten the confirmation I need. Just like when I originally had John Hersey in the final four but didn’t have the confirmation I needed for that 4th guy (which I finally got this weekend along with finding out John wasn’t in the final 4), I was able to get it and confirm Andrew S. and Justin rounded her final 4. When I find out who Katie got engaged to, you’ll be the first to know. I know a ton of people assume it’s Greg after last night. It very well may be. I just haven’t had any solid confirmation it is or isn’t just yet.

I did not care for the double host combo at all. That was just a bad idea. They should have had one or the other.
June 8, 2021 at 10:56 AM
I really liked the Kaitlyn and Tayshia combo. It allows not only for them to interact with Katie, but for them to comment on the goings on in a way that couldn’t happen with just one host. It’s like a fun girl group. And since they are both engaged there is no actual competition from them for the guys. I did think Katie worrying about having to “handle this on her own” and having K&T surprise her was ridiculous. No way could she have possibly thought ABC was sending her out there without a “chaperone.” And I’m sure they all met plenty of times beforehand to cement their friendship and help with chemistry. Overall not a bad first night.

I had no reaction to the double hostess. But it was an ok first night. Some of the scenes were amusing. Kimmel was so funny with the OMG. And yeah glad you are having your party – can’t go but glad we are normal enough to have it.
I really tried to find the jerk that said that horrible thing to Ashley but as you said taken down. I was going to give her a piece of my mind. I was appalled just blown away at how mean it was. Not that it would do any good – people are not nice these days.
Just an observation – I don’t think you should shy away from what you report. So many of the Bachelor world has reached out to you to help when false information is published etc….so all of this is nonsense and foolishness. Can we just go back to spoilers and fun stuff and stop with all the toxic. Sheez

Rather than watching the same, boring, rehashed storylines this season, after watching every episode of all prior 42 seasons, I’m binge watching Bachelor Canada and Married at First Sight instead this summer. Still may tune in for BIP though…

I didn’t mind the two hosts last night and really don’t care that Harrison is no longer taking part.
I am disappointed to have to see Nick “slushy voice thirst trap try hard” Viall on BIP. He is insufferable.

Nick “slushy voice thirst trap try hard” Viall. LOL

Nick Viall has to one of the smarmiest, oiliest bohunks ever. I quite literally cringe whenever that leering smile crosses the screen. Isn’t his 15 minutes up yet? Who is he blackmailing to keep getting more on-air time? I’m truly trying to curb my instincts here and not unleash a litany of abusive slurs on the cur so I’m signing off. I try to contain myself but I usually escape! ?

What is with the paranoia of people who are vaccinated worried to be around people who are not vaccinated? What is the point of being vaccinated if you are still afraid of those who aren’t? It just doesn’t make any sense. Shaking my head.

And if the people who are paranoid or worried about someone spreading the virus that is easily squashed by asking for a current Covid test to attend the party, easy Peasy.

It was not at all surprising to me that Chris Harrison was leaving the franchise. Once someone gets a bit of a spanking and time off they start hearing all of the he said she said stuff that has been going on behind their back‘s and they realize that there are other opportunities I had for them so it usually does end and they’re not returning to their job. I expected this from the moment Chris announced time off. I knew it would be permanent, it just makes sense.
