Reality Steve's Episode By Episode Spoilers for this season of "The Bachelorette"!

by Natalie Randall

He's done it again!! Realitysteve.com has again revealed the rumored "winner" of "The Bachelorette" WEEKS before the finale. In fact, he posted his info BEFORE the first episode of the season even air! 






Episode 2 (airing June 3rd): Los Angeles, CA (19 to 16)

1-on-1 date: Brooks Forester. She picked him up in a Bentley, they cruised Hollywood Blvd dressed as a bride and groom, got out on the sidewalk, fed each other cupcakes, and took questions from the fans standing around. Afterwards, they headed up the Hollywood sign (just like Ali and Frank when they had the first date of her season. Very original), and they get a private concert from R&B performer Andy Grammer. Brooks got a rose.

Group date: She takes 14 guys to a studio where they record a song with rapper Soulja Boy. Awesome. I was really hoping they made a video to “Crank That” because it’s so appropriate for the Disney/ABC audience. Unfortunately, they didn’t. The song they make a video to is called “Right Reasons,” hence the reason they featured Desiree saying “Is everyone here for the right reasons” in that in the :30 promo that People.com released. Ben Scott gets the group date rose.

Chris, Brad, and Bobby are the three guys who don’t have dates this episode.

1-on-1 date: Bryden Vukasin. At the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. In case you missed it when I first posted on March 21st, a blogger named “Johnny Jet” happened to be visiting the resort at the time of filming and filed this review of what he saw.

This isn’t the first I’ve heard of hotel patrons being inconvenienced by the “Bachelor” or “Bachelorette” filming at their hotel, and it certainly won’t be the last. This is pretty much the type of ship they run. It’s their way or the highway, and those resorts are basically at their mercy because they are the ones getting free publicity out of being on the show. Pretty funny how “Johnny Jet” calls them out on it though, not to mention laughs at the show for being fake. Bryden gets a rose.

I mentioned in a previous post that Robert Graham once hooked up with Desiree’s roommate. Desiree recognizes Robert, but he doesn’t remember Desiree. Yet another instance where I’m not sure if this storyline will play out on air, but it definitely happened.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Will Smith, Robert Graham, and Nick Mucci.

Episode 3 (airing June 10th): Los Angeles, CA (16 to 13)

For the first time I believe ever in 25 seasons, an episode consisted of two group dates, and only one 1-on-1.

Group Date: Dodgeball at the Americana at Brand. I live tweeted this date as it was happening back on March 20th, but here’s the basics:

-They played best 2-out-of-3.
-The 5 guys on the Blue Team were Brad, Ben, Zack K, Brian, and Drew. The Red Team consisted of Brooks, Brandon, Chris, Mikey (Tenerelli), and Michael (Garofola).
-The Blue Team won the first game.
-Right when the second game started, Brooks injured his finger. A medic (and Des) came to his side, and he had to be removed from the game. While he was being tended to, some of the guys on the Blue Team were saying he was pulling a “Tierra.” Possible broken finger as he was taken away in an ambulance. From that point on, the Blue Team had to rotate someone and the game was 4-on-4.
-The Red Team won the second game.
-The final two guys remaining in Game 3 were Zack K (Blue) vs. Chris (Red). The Red Team thought they won, but apparently Chris had stepped over the line. So they restarted, and the Blue Team won thanks to Zack.
-The Blue Team each took turns giving Desiree a piggy back ride after the win.
-The crowd shouted for them to have a push-up contest and a couple of the guys did with Des on their back just for fun. The End.

The post date after party was on the rooftop at a hotel in LA. Chris gets the private concert date with Desiree to watch Kate Earl perform.

Here are pictures to commemorate that date:

1-on-1 date: Kasey Stewart. They went window dancing at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood. Kasey got a rose.

On the day of Kasey’s date, the first major drama of the season happened back at the mansion. Looks like they went back to an ol’ standby this season: the ex-girlfriend appearing. ABC wasted no time in promoting this as it was in their first promo of the season. It’s actually been a while since we’ve seen that. Sure, there’s always talk every season about someone having a boyfriend/girlfriend back home, but do you realize we haven’t seen one actually appear on the show since Ali’s season, when Rego’s ex-girlfriend made that phone call? Sean, Emily, Ben, Ashley, and Brad’s season have all come and gone without them going to the “ex still in the picture” card, at least in terms of them appearing on the show. Until now. Brian Jarosinski had a girlfriend before going on the show and she showed up on that Thursday, March 21st, and I reported this back on my March 28th column. She confronted him, and he was removed from the show. Her name is Stephanie Larimore, a single mom, and most notably, was also Playboy’s Playmate of the month back in June 2006. There are MANY Google images of her if you’re so inclined to look. I certainly did. And oh yeah, she’s also the ex-girlfriend of former “Bachelorette” contestant Craig Robinson. Ahhhh, what an incestual family this franchise can be at times. From what I was told, Stephanie had no clue that Brian had left to go on the show until either she, or one of her friends, informed her that I had confirmed his as a contestant on the “Bachelorette.” She somehow got in touch with producers at that point, told them Brian didn’t even tell her she was doing this, and they had her on a plane immediately to confront him. Lets see how this douchelord tries to defend himself once it airs. Anyway, the first two pictures are her with Brian that were on his Facebook page before he took it down:

Group date: Cowboy boot camp. 5 guys (Zak, James, Juan Pablo, Bryden, and Dan) learn stunts from professionals. Zak wins a VIP screening of the “Lone Ranger” movie with Desiree.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Brandon Andreen, and Dan Cox. Brian Jarosinski eliminated earlier in the episode because, well, his girlfriend showed up.

Episode 4 (airing June 17th): Atlantic City, NJ (13 to 11)

1-on-1 date: Brad McKinzie. They went to an amusement park in a Rolls Royce and ate dinner. Also played games at the park where Brad won toys to bring home to his son Maddex. Dinner was at a lighthouse, but Brad didn’t get a rose on this date and was sent home. However, there is a little drama surrounding Brad’s exit. Maddex’s mother, Brittnee Nelson, had either a boyfriend/fiancé she’d been with for a while living in Colorado. Apparently while Brad was away filming, Brittnee and her bf/fiancé had some sort of disagreement, and she decided to move back home to Texas where her family is. Her FB page says she’s currently in Dallas, Tx. Obviously she couldn’t take Maddex with her (I’m guessing that’d be considered kidnapping), so before she left, she dropped him off at Brad’s mom’s house. This was all relayed to Brad during filming at some point, and Brad makes a phone call to Brittnee in front of the cameras to confront her on what happened. I don’t know if this phone call took place before he ever had this date with Desiree, so it’s sets up the drama he has going on back home, or, it’s after she doesn’t give him a rose. Not sure.

Group Date: Mr. America competition at the Revel Hotel. This was another date that I was live tweeting and sharing pictures with as it was happening back on Wednesday, March 27th. The three judges were Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan from New York, the mayor of Atlantic City Lorenzo Langford, and Desiree. Each guy was asked a question, had to do a talent, and then they had the swimsuit competition. 

(Starting from the far end): Kasey Stewart (being covered up by Chris Harrison), Drew Kenney, Zack Kalter, Mike Garofola, Mikey Tenerelli, Brooks Forester, Chris Siegfried, Ben Scott, Zak Waddell, Juan Pablo Galavis, Bryden Vukasin

Kasey won the “pageant,” Zak W. finished 2nd, with Brooks finishing in 3rd.

1-on-1 date: James Case. They visit an area that was decimated by Hurricane Sandy and meet a couple who were victims from the storm. Darius Rucker appears as well. James gets a rose.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Zack Kalter. Brad McKinzie not given a rose on his date.

Episode 5 (airing June 24th): Munich, Germany (11 to 8 )

1-on-1 date: Chris Siegfried. They toured the city of Munich then ended up with a private concert from pop artist Matt White. Chris gets a rose.

Group date: 8 guys (or 7) went sledding down highest peak in Germany. Brooks, Drew, Juan Pablo, Kasey, Zak, James, and Mikey were definitely on the date.

Bryden eliminated himself early in the week in Germany (not sure if it was before or after the group date happened) because from what I was told “just wasn’t feeling it.” 

2-on-1 date: Michael Garofola & Ben Scott. They spend most of the day on a boat, and even get to chill in a hot tub in the water. Michael & Ben did not get along. Mike thought Ben used his son to advance with Desiree and basically bad mouthed the guy to Desiree, yet she keeps Michael. Ben gets eliminated.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Mikey Tenerelli. Bryden eliminated himself earlier in the week and Ben Scott eliminated on the 2-on-1.

Episode 6 (airing July 1st): Barcelona, Spain (8 to 5)

1-on-1 date: Drew Kenney. Gets a rose.

Group date: Six guys suit up and play against a professional soccer team. Not sure what the twist is that the press release mentions, but I’ll let you know when I do.

1-on-1 date: This one I’m not sure of yet. I think it was Zak.

Kasey and James have a major confrontation in Spain. Apparently James has diarrhea of the mouth and basically will be the quote machine of the season. Constantly saying inappropriate things in ITM’s and what not. It’s not going to be a good season for James to say the least. Kasey has issues with him, he calls him out on them, and they have a heated argument. Kasey warns Desiree about James not being the right guy for her. I guess it didn’t work since both of them end up getting sent home.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Kasey Stewart, James Case, and Juan Pablo Galavis.

Epsiode 7 (airing July 8th): Madeira Island, Portugal (5 to 4)

At some point in Portugal, Lesley Murphy, Catherine, and Jackie Parr show up to talk with Desiree about her journey up to that point. Not sure if they meet the guys or not. If I had to guess, I’d say no.

There were three 1-on-1 dates and a group date (2 guys) in Portugal. Based on the info I’ve received, I’m pretty sure Brooks, Michael G., and Chris had the 1-on-1′s and Drew & Zak had the 2-on-1, but still not 100% sure. Remember, roses aren’t given out on the 1-on-1′s before the hometown date. Unless you’re Brad Womack and you break the rule to give Emily one.

Rose Ceremony Elimination: Michael Garofola.

Episode 8 (airing July 15th): Hometowns (4 to 3)

Chris Siegfried (McMinnville, OR) (Filmed April 20th)

Brooks Forester (Salt Lake City, UT) (Filmed April 22nd)

Zak Waddell (Dallas, TX) (Filmed April 19th)

Drew Kenney (Scottsdale, AZ) (Filmed April 17th)

Rose Ceremony Elimination: Zak Waddell. 

Episode 9 (airing July 22nd): Overnight dates (In Antigua, 3 down to 2)

No guys were eliminated early or anything like that, Desiree did use the fantasy suite with all three guys. As far as what went on, I have no idea. I guess once we watch the whole season we can see how things play out and you can play the game in your head of, “How many of the three did Desiree sleep with?” That’s always fun. I can tell you though at some point during her overnight with Zak, conversation did not go well. Not sure if this will be shown or not, but probably what led to him not getting a rose. Update: The Zak conversation either took place some other time, or not at all. Haven’t been able to follow up on that one.

Rose Ceremony Elimination: Drew Kenney.

Episode 10 (airing July 29th): “Men Tell All”

Episode 11: (Final Rose Ceremony, Brooks vs Chris)

It took place Wednesay, May 8th at the Verandah Resort and Spa in Antigua. Almost a month ago to the day, I sent out this tweet:

This was right when hometowns were starting and all I was hearing was “Brooks, Brooks, Brooks. She’s picking Brooks.” So I tweeted that out. Then in my next column on April 24th, is when I revealed that it was Brooks who my sources were telling me was the one she really liked and was going to pick him at the end. Almost like it was a no-brainer. I was skeptical though because last season I was told AshLee was Sean’s front runner when hometowns started, and we know how that turned out. So did Desiree have a change of heart? Did something happen at the end that made it go in a different direction? Or was what I was told a month ago accurate and it’s been known for a while she was gonna pick Brooks? I can tell you there was no trickery at the end, and she didn’t send anyone home early. Both guys showed up, she dumped one and got engaged to the other. Yep. The sources were right.

Desiree is engaged to Brooks Forester.

There was an attraction to Brooks from the beginning, before hometowns even started I was hearing that’s the guy she was gonna pick, she did, and now they’re engaged. Congrats to them...
