The Internets are buzzing over The Bachelor spoilers from a blogger who seems to be at least somewhat in the know, and who adamantly claims the ABC reality hit's producers rigged this entire season - right from the beginning.
In this Bachelor spoiler bombshell is to be believed, single dad Jason Mesnick picks Melissa Rycroft on the March 2 finale, but after the proposal to the former NFL cheerleader, he secretly continues to date runner-up Molly Malaney.
The "shocking" details will supposedly be revealed at the "After the Final Rose" special airing immediately after the season finale, with a second "After The Final Rose, Part 2" special now on tap to air the next night, March 3.
An ABC rep would not confirm these rumors, except to say that the finale has been taped, and that both "After The Rose" specials are still in production.
But The Bachelor host Chris Harrison said at the end of last Monday's episode that the developments were so shocking, producers kept the cameras rolling.
So does Molly Malaney really end up with Jason Mesnick, or is this prescient blogger just making stuff up to get hits on his site (it's working if so)?
For whatever it's worth, a writer from her hometown Grand Rapids Press says The Bachelor conspiracy theory posited by "Reality Steve" makes sense in part.
"I think this might actually have something to it, because this theory, that Jason chooses Melissa, only to change his mind and later choose Molly, actually lines up with what my sources have been saying," opines Lorilee Craker.
"Three sources who know [Molly Malaney] and have stayed in touch with her since the show started have said she probably doesn't win, from what they can gather, but that she has told them all the experience was 'life changing.'"
"I also think the fact that there is a second 'After the Rose' special is odd, and also seems to give a more weight to this theory. I've also heard that Molly has been making trips to L.A. 'for work,' which would corroborate this as well."
