During the last season of the Bachelor I happened to be hanging out with a former contestant who knew the outcome and spilled the beans. So from the very beginning of the season I knew that Ben chose Courtney, the model. According to reports they’re still together which is quite a shock for anyone, but knowing who ended up with the final rose really ruined the experience for me. However, there are some people who love knowing the inside scoop. And there are plenty of websites ready to dish it out.
I have friends that love reading blogs like RealitySteve.com or WetPaint.com that seem to know the outcome of the Bachelor or Bachelorette season before it even begins. But for me, that takes the fun out of it. It’s like peeking at your presents before Christmas morning. I like experiencing it as it happens– at least how ABC makes it appear to happen. I imagine it’s especially tough for people like me who live on the west coast. No matter how hard they try to avoid finding out the ending of an episode before it airs, a simple visit to Facebook or Twitter could ruin that right away.
So I’d like to know– do you like reading Bachelorette spoilers, finding out the scoop before everyone else? Or do you prefer to watch it week after week and see the drama unfold gradually? Emily Maynard is down to her final four guys and– spoiler alert– I have no idea how this will end up! I was a little surprised to see Doug go (and the fact that he ended it all with the most awkward kiss ever!) but I didn’t know about it until the episode aired. And if you know, please don’t ruin it for me!
