Filming of ABC’s The Bachelor 2016 season starring Ben Higgins has wrapped, and the final rose has been presented. Though viewers won’t see this final rose ceremony air until March, Reality Steve’s spoilers are dishing out the scoop now. Will his Bachelor spoilers nail the ending correctly this time around? Just which bachelorette is said to get Ben Higgins’ final rose, and did they get engaged?
Reality Steve’s spoilers have teased that Ben Higgins’ final three ladies are Caila Quinn, Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher, and Lauren Bushnell. Steve’s Bachelor spoilers indicate that they all went to Jamaica for the overnight dates and last rose ceremonies. His teasers also indicate that Ben had overnight dates with all three of the ladies, then eliminated Caila at the rose ceremony.
The final two ladies had last chance dates and likely met Ben’s family, and so far, Reality Steve’s spoilers don’t detail anything unusual or shocking about these final gatherings. Just as Steve’s Bachelor spoilers had previously predicted, he shares that Higgins’ final rose went to Lauren. He adds that Ben and Lauren are now engaged.
Steve had previously detailed that Ben fell hard for Lauren about halfway through filming and that it became fairly obvious to many of the other bachelorettes. Of course, the show may edit things differently to hide that a bit, though they may also go ahead and embrace the opportunity to show a real love story developing. Everybody will get a better sense of this when the show premieres in January.
For those who have been following Bachelor spoilers throughout filming, hearing that Ben is engaged to Lauren likely doesn’t come as a big surprise. For those who doubt Reality Steve’s spoilers, the spoiler gurus on the Bach and Bachette Fan Forums were tracking social media activity of Ben, Lauren, Caila, and JoJo, and it would seem that this activity backs up Steve’s final rose spoilers.
Both Caila and JoJo were doing some subtle social media activity, such as liking photos or following people, before Ben and Lauren popped up again online. Caila was back on Instagram in full fairly quickly as filming wrapped. However, neither Ben or Lauren were back on social media until November 21, several days after what Reality Steve’s spoilers indicated was the final rose ceremony day, November 18. It is typical for the lead and final rose recipient to spend several quiet days together after the last rose ceremony, and it would appear that Season 20 of The Bachelor is no different.
The new season featuring Ben, Lauren, and the others premieres on Monday, January 4, and fans cannot wait to get started. Of course, there is already buzz swirling about which lady will get the gig for the Bachelorette 2016 spring season. As Reality Steve’s spoilers detail, finishing in the top four is always key, and the show has never gone outside the franchise for a lead.
Reality Steve had previously thought that JoJo Fletcher was the likely candidate for the next lead. However, seeing her finish in second place in Ben’s season, if Steve’s Bachelor spoilers are true, could throw a bit of a wrench in that plan. Though fans argue it could be done, typically the contestant who finishes second does not get the gig.
Steve adds that Caila, while finishing in the prime spot to get the lead gig, may be a somewhat controversial contestant this season and might not win people over for the opportunity. Amanda Stanton, the fourth-place bachelorette, has two young girls at home and while Steve thinks she’s a possibility, she’s definitely not a lock.
Fans will certainly also speculate about other bachelorettes from Season 20 who finish lower than fourth, or about other franchise ladies who could step into the gig. However, no decisions will be made on this front for a while yet and fans will have to stay tuned to see what develops.
Will Reality Steve’s spoilers be right for Season 20? Does Ben Higgins’ final rose go to Lauren Bushnell — and are they engaged? ABC’s The Bachelor 2016 season begins in January, and fans cannot wait to get started.
