LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Bachelorette 2012 winner is keeping spoilers from leaking online this season. The Bachelorette 2012 winner and Emily Maynard have undergone production changes since last season’s The Bachelor to prevent leaks, so claims RealitySteve.com. As fans remain guessing who wins The Bachelorette 2012, RealitySteve tells news this week he still doesn’t have the answer. And while it remains unclear why the winner’s name hasn’t leaked yet this season, Steve warns that the winner’s identity may never leak before the finale.
The Bachelorette 2012 winner’s identity remains a far better guarded secret than Courtney Robertson’s win on the Bachelor 2011. It’s all the result of alleged production changes, claims RealitySteve. In recent seasons, Steve has noted travel plans of ABC contestants after the final rose telecast. But this time, those travel itineraries allegedly were modified to keep the winner’s name a real secret.
For weeks, online spoilers have already revealed that the winner is either Jef Holm, Arie Luyendyk Jr., or Sean Lowe. Those three men are confirmed by spoilers as reaching to the final. Moreover, the winner is reportedly among those three men. Emily does find love, and she and the winner are reportedly engaged.
But which of the three men wins the season? RealitySteve just don’t know. “As of this point, I still don’t know how the final 3 shakes out between Sean, Arie, and Jef. In past seasons, I’ve gotten it right more often than not.”
RealitySteve says that production changes has kept the secret from leaking. “But this season, I will give [...producers] credit. This one has been a tough one to crack.”
Steve also warns viewers that several fake rumors have surfaced, making it even more difficult. “I’ve heard so many things since filming ended, a lot of which are conflicting stories, so I’m not 100% confident in running with anything yet until I hear something I feel is solid.”
In fact, Steve says the lid on this season’s final may not be breakable. He notes that producers allegedly have “kept a pretty good lid on the ending this season, regardless of what else is being said out there. “
Steve believes he will get more details about the finale, but he is still unsure when. “I’m still working on the ending … Could be something, could be nothing. But until I know with 100% certainty how the ending shakes out, I’m gonna hold off on reporting it, because right now I don’t know.”
RealitySteve.com says this season has been unlike any from the franchise earlier. But could this herald a new attempt by producers to keep the winner a secret all season long? “This season has been really weird with them sequestering all three guys from the overnight dates on. A lot of misinformation floating out there.”
While Arie, Sean, and Jef are the final three, online spoilers claim one of the men gets the final rose and is currently engaged to Emily. “All I know is that whoever was eliminated at the final three did not go home, since Arie, Jef, and Sean all returned home after the final rose ceremony had already been filmed.”
So will Steve get the identity before the finale? “Right now, I do not know the ending to the show. I might get it next week, I might get it in a month, I might never get it. It’s definitely be tougher to come by this season than in the past, that’s for sure.”
