The Bachelorette 2016 finale is still one week away, but an accidental spoiler may have just revealed who JoJo Fletcher will be selecting for her final rose.
The ABC reality series has been notoriously tight about information being leaked out by its contestants, with a reportedly iron-clad agreement that participants not talk about how the show ended. Producers even go to great lengths to keep it from the public, keeping the final couple apart and away from the public eye for weeks until the big reveal.
It doesn’t always work. In fact, it doesn’t ever work, given that the final pick ends up being leaked out to the internet usually before the show even premieres thanks to some well-connected insiders. But the word almost never comes directly from the Bachelorette contestants or their families — until this year.
[WARNING: Bachelorette 2016 spoilers ahead.]
That may have just happened with the Bachelorette 2016 finale, with a spoiler appearing to come directly from a contestant’s family. It seemed to slip out in an interview that the brother of contestant Jordan Rodgers gave to Womanista about his connection with JoJo Fletcher.
In the interview, Luke Rodgers appeared to hint that Jordan and Fletcher are looking forward to a future together.
“Let’s hope that non-disclosure agreement penalty isn’t too harsh.”
That Bachelorette finale spoiler would seem to match up with the other information that’s already been floating around the internet for the past few weeks. Blogger Reality Steve, the aforementioned insider who has consistently been feeding information about the show’s winners to the public, predicted even before this season debuted that JoJo would be picking Jordan.
Before Luke Rodgers appeared to spill the beans on the Bachelorette finale, there was still some lingering doubt about whether Reality Steve was correct. Though his sources within ABC are almost always correct, he does not have a perfect record and has been wrong about the final pick at least once.
With Luke’s interview slip-up, it’s looking more and more certain that Jordan Rodgers and JoJo Fletcher will end up together at the Bachelorette finale.
It may not get much further than that, however. Reality Steve noted that Jordan is interested more in the fame that a Bachelorette win will bring him than actually getting married to JoJo.
“… But just after hearing all this stuff about Jordan, I hope JoJo has developed some thick skin because she’s gonna have to put up with a s*** ton of tabloid coverage blasting this guy in the next few months. I’m sure she’ll stand by him and choose to believe the stories aren’t true, but really? You think every single one of these girls is just gonna be making stuff up about the guy? Horrible way to start a relationship. Like I said, be careful JoJo. You’re in for one bumpy ride.”
Fans who want to know if the Bachelorette 2016 spoilers predicting a win for Jordan Rodgers are true will have just a little bit longer to wait. The show’s final episode is set to air on August 1.
