Let’s get the spoiler warning out of the way … IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHO THE REPORTED WINNER OF THIS SEASON OF THE BACHELORETTE IS, STOP READING NOW.
Okay, let’s get started. For weeks, blogger Reality Steve has maintained that contestant Peter Kraus was the winner on The Bachelorette 2017. Reality Steve originally stated:
Rachel is engaged to Peter Kraus. As I say every season, this isn’t a prediction, this isn’t a guess, this isn’t “Well, I know who the final 3 are, I’ve got a 33% chance of being right, might as well just take a stab at it.” No, she’s engaged to Peter … So congrats to those two, their lives and every motion they make from now until her finale airs on Aug. 7th will be dissected every which way but Sunday, so I hope they’re ready for that. Nothing left to see here for me.
Reality Steve is usually very accurate with his spoilers and predictions, but it looks like this time, he was wrong. It’s not the first time that Reality Steve has been incorrect, but, as always, he owns the error and provides as much information as possible. Today, Reality Steve talked about mistakes of the past, explaining that:
I get told all the time from somewhere by someone “Oh, your spoiler is wrong” after I release the ending of the show. Just in the last few seasons, I was told specifically that Chris picked Becca after I posted the spoiler – didn’t happen. The next season was the Kaitlyn mess when I had her as single and was told two days before her snapchat fiasco she was engaged to Shawn. Then I was told Ben picked JoJo – he didn’t, was told JoJo picked Robby – she didn’t, then someone said last season Nick picked Raven – he didn’t. So it happens every single season like clockwork. I fully expect it, it’s usually nothing, and I’ve never wavered from my original post. And yet again, it’s happened this season after I posted the spoiler.
So, who is the actual winner this season? According to the Bachelorette guru:
I’m sure all the Rachel/Peter fans are about to go into cardiac arrest, but I’m here to tell you…the spoiler I posted on May 17th was wrong. Rachel is engaged to Bryan Abasolo … I know you want answers. Unfortunately, without compromising sources, I can’t give you specifics because that’d be giving away the who/how/what … The bottom line is my source was initially wrong when they told me it was Peter, they corrected themselves, and are sure she’s with Bryan now. And so am I. If they’re wrong, I’m wrong. The good thing is we got it corrected early enough to where it hasn’t even been 3 weeks.
On the premiere episode this season, it was Dr. Bryan Abasalo who received the First Impression Rose, which was definitely a good sign for him. The two engaged in some steamy kisses and Lindsay was clearly attracted to him. It’s definitely conceivable that the two could be engaged today. Recently, an alleged ex-girlfriend of Abasalo spoke out about a relationship with him, but it definitely was different than the kind of stories Bachelor fans have heard from exes in the past. Abasalo’s alleged ex Genavieve Boué actually had nice things to say about him, telling Life And Style Magazine:
He’s a really good guy. I could see why Rachel would like him. He’s what he describes himself to be, a go-getter. We had really good dates … He deserves his chance. I believe he’s there for the right reasons. He’s really close to his family… He’s just a really good guy. He may be portrayed one way on television, but that’s not how he should be portrayed.
According to Boué, she and Abasalo met online and only dated for two months.
