The Bachelorette Finale Spoilers: Reid Returns, Kiptyn is The Bachelor, Ed Proposes ... and Has a Girlfriend?

by at . Comments

On last night's episode of The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris bid farewell to Reid Rosenthal, to the surprise of no one, keeping Ed Swiderski and Kiptyn Locke.

With the exception of Ed's performance anxiety and the show's hilarious ways of wording that situation, Monday's episode was fairly vanilla and predictable.

But now that Reid's gone and Kiptyn and Ed are the last men standing, The Bachelorette spoilers and rumor mill are starting to go haywire. Ready for this?

If our sources are to be believed ...

  • Ed Swiderski proposes to Jillian Harris on The Bachelorette season finale in two weeks (next week is the useless "Men Tell All" filler clip show).
  • The "unexpected confession" on the season finale is that Jillian's just-vanquished "Honey Bear," Reid Rosenthal, returns to say he loves her.
  • Kiptyn Locke has already been named the next star of The Bachelor.
  • Oh, and Ed may have a girlfriend back home.

Will Jillian choose Ed, Kiptyn, or a returning Reid?

First, Reid Rosenthal. You knew after DeAnna Pappas told The Bachelor's Jason Mesnick she "made a mistake" - this even before he chose Melissa Rycroft and dumped her for Molly Malaney - that The Bachelorette finale would include some stunt.

Reid coming back to Hawaii to profess his love for Jillian Harris, which he just couldn't quite do all season long and resulted in demise, makes perfect sense.

But is it too little, too late? Is it completely contrived? Probably. But is there a chance Reid can come back and steal this title in dramatic fashion? Sure.

It would certainly be a stunning (albeit blatantly scripted) conclusion that would fall short of the Jason-Molly-Melissa drama, but not by too much.

As for Kiptyn Locke, he has been rumored to have signed a deal to be the new star of The Bachelor for some time now. Mr. Perfect certainly looks and acts the part, making some fans wonder if he was being groomed for this all along.

Finally, Ed Swiderski having a girlfriend in Chicago?

A shaky rumor, to be sure, but our man Reality Steve has never been wrong before, so his Bachelorette spoilers have to be taken semi-seriously ...


Who will win The Bachelorette's heart?

The blogger reports that Ed Swiderski left a female in Chicago high and dry - a girl who “without a doubt” was Ed’s girlfriend before he left for The Bachelorette.

This girl was under the assumption they were dating when he left to film the show. He came back to Chicago (after bailing on Jillian) then went AWOL again.

An email was sent asking “So I guess we’re seeing other people now.” Ed responded with “No, I just need to wait until this show is over.” This girlfriend of Ed’s is under the assumption they are together and she just has to wait out the show.

Shady stuff if that's true. Wouldn't it be wild if Wes Hayden drama was manufactured and it turned out to be Ed with a girlfriend back home - who came back to bite him? Or if all this were a red herring and Kiptyn Locke ended up winning?

Who will win The Bachelorette?


Sorry but I'm done watching this show. It has become a culmination of theatrics to keep the viewer watching. And the finale was just a complete mockery of marriage proposals. Having Reid get down on his knee to propose was just silly. What are these producers thinking? Better question is how old are they? It has become very clear that the people producing these so-called reality shows are young people without any idea of what real life is (or should be) like. This show could be so much better if a marriage proposal was not expected at the end. Real life romance takes a long time to grow to the point of a marriage proposal. Yet, these people have only a handful of weeks to meet, learn about each other, develop feelings and then make a commitment that is supposed to mean the rest of their lives. Good lord .... get real. It used to be a cute show, now it's just plain silly. Good lord....


Was anyone watching the show? Ed is totally not interested in women...if you follow me...and kip was just interested in strutting his abs...and Reid....he should've finished getting dressed before he got off the car. Jill is a total Playa....


Gill loves Edd. his shorts r green and its' nic e. they luuuuvvvv eachother sooooo much. They r goin get maRRRIed and stay that way and have lot's of kids' with eachother. yeSSSS!!!! Q


Jake would be a better bachelor than Kiptyn. Jake is a great catch. Kip needs some Rogaine before he comes back next year.
Reid was way out of line to go back after he lost.


I can't believe that she chose Ed either. What a joke. I wonder if he really had a girlfriend, like the reports showed. ICK, ICK!!!! I don't like ED!!!


Jillian, are you kidding me. You kissed and hugged Kiptyn through the entire season like there was no tomorrow and then you all of a sudden fall in love for a guy that you clearly stated you had no physical attraction to. This must be for ratings and worst season of all. Kiptyn, I think you lucked out on this one. Can't wait to see you as the next bachelor


I can't believe she picked boring Ed. He is so nervous and goofy not to mention out of shape. He reminds me of the brother on that Raymond show. Kiptyn had substance and they seemed to talk more, he ws relaxed and a real man. Ed wore that green bathing suit one too many times for me. I mean, how many times can you wear the same suit in the hot tubs, pools, oceans, etc. Wow, I hope Kiptyn find someone who can really appreciate all the amazing qualities he had.


What was the name of the closing song and who sang it on the final show when Jilian picked Ed.


she picks ed i just watched it


OK, this show is getting ridiculous! I used to enjoy watching this show, but it is getting way to Hollywood for me. Jillian, stop crying everytime YOU let someone go. This is so hokey!
