Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher’s journey to find love comes to a close next week when the 25-year-old Texas beauty faces her two remaining men at the final rose ceremony.
Although spoilers point to JoJo getting engaged on the season finale, the show’s producers may have a surprise in store for viewers that will prove blogger Reality Steve wrong. Here’s a look at why fans could see an unexpected twist at the final rose ceremony that could turn out to be as shocking as Des Hartsock’s season of the Bachelorette.
[Warning: The Bachelorette Season 12 spoilers ahead.]
Before the Bachelorette season finale airs on August 2, ABC will air a two-night event that features the overnight dates episode on Monday, July 25, and the pre-taped Men Tell All special on Tuesday, July 26.
Last week, fans were left hanging when Luke Pell pulled JoJo aside during the hometown dates rose ceremony. JoJo told producers in an ITM (“in the moment”) that she had already made up her mind to send the 31-year-old war veteran home after their hometown dates, but his last-minute “I love you” threw off her plans.
Us Weekly reports that JoJo’s feelings for Luke were strong, with the Bachelorette revealing that they had “crazy” emotional and physical chemistry, so it wasn’t a big surprise to find out that Luke would make it to the final three.
However, weeks after posting his initial spoilers, Steve revealed that he was wrong about Luke and changed his prediction for the final three to Chase, Robby, and Jordan.
Steve’s spoilers have been otherwise on track this season, but revealing that JoJo picked Chase over Luke for the Fantasy Suite dates just doesn’t add up.
During an interview with People magazine, JoJo stated that she didn’t want “rank the guys,” but her relationships with Jordan and Luke “were consistently strong,” hinting that they would be the final two guys standing on the Bachelorette season finale.
Her relationship with Chase lagged behind the other guys all season, so it raises the question — did Reality Steve‘s sources misinform him about the outcome of the show, and will JoJo have to decide between Luke and Jordan at the final rose ceremony?
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Luke Pell is at the top of the list to become the next Bachelor. If he does leave after hometowns, producers prodding JoJo to eliminate him before the Fantasy Suite dates makes sense — a war veteran who loses out on love is a great backstory for ABC’s next leading man.
Reality Steve has not changed his spoilers since he revealed earlier in the season that Chase, not Luke, would make it to the overnight dates. Will he claim victory tonight when that happens or will fans see a totally different outcome?
Tune in to watch the Bachelorette on July 25 at 8 p.m. on ABC, followed by the two-hour Men Tell All special at 8 p.m. ET on July 26. The three-hour season finale is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET on August 1, and includes the live After the Final Rose special.
