WARNING: Spoilers for Season 8 of ABC's The Bachelorette follow.
ABC's The Bachelorette season is nearly over, and Emily Maynard is coming closer to making her final decision. The choices have been narrowed down to Jef Holm and Arie Luyendyk Jr., but viewers will have to wait until Sunday, July 22, to see which bachelor will leave engaged to Maynard.
The special that typically follows the show's finale, known as the After the Rose episode, will be filmed live this year. As a result, spoilers are few and far between, but of course some information has leaked its way to the Internet. According to Wet Paint, one of the final trio is still unsettled about the choice that Maynard makes, although the source has not indicated to Wet Paint which one is feeling the conflict.
One of these characters is said to have had lingering feelings that need to be addressed, the entertainment news site reported. Producers are doing a live show to prevent leaks, and none of the parties involved know exactly how the live special will pan out.
It is unclear which member of the show is suffering these unsettling feelings, but it has been revealed that events since the finale in May have caused major problems in her relationship. It was reported earlier that Reality Steve had learned that Maynard did accept a proposal from Jef in Curacao, but until the final episode airs this remains to be seen. This would line up with the information Wet Paint has learned, which confirms that the bachelorette leaves the tropical paradise an engaged woman.
Renowned for his television spoilers, Reality Steve has previously indicated that Maynard will choose Jef in the final episode. It seems the creator of the series, Mike Fleiss, has been attempting to take down Reality Steve, as television blog Carter reports. In a recent Twitter post, the reality show creator alluded to the fact that something big is in the works for Bachelorette fans:
Tomorrow is a big day for us in #Bachelornation...Men will be telling all, but first-Ka-booooooom!!! #justice he tweeted.
He later followed up that post by tweeting, Time to start begging for money...U might want to get a guitar and learn some Cat Stevens.
This insinuates that there could be some hefty legal fees coming. Previously, when Reality Steve suffered legal royalties for spilling information on The Bachelor, he used a Donate button on his website to cover the costs.
Host Chris Harrison seemed to have offered some input into who he thinks would be the perfect fit for Maynard. According to Extra, the reality show host said I hope she picks Arie, before quickly adding or Jef!
It's kind of like a three-ring circus and I am the circus master, Harrison told Extra when referring to the Men Tell All episode. In this special, Maynard will be facing each of the men she has sent home before heading to the final rose ceremony to make her choice.
