LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The mystery over who wins The Bachelor 2013, and who does Sean Lowe pick, was answered last November. Tonight, The Bachelor 2013 spoilers will be put to the test. Since November 2012, those Bachelor spoilers from RealitySteve.com have claimed that Catherine Giudici wins The Bachelor 2013, and that she accepts Sean’s proposal.
Moreover, fans need not ask if Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are still together and still engaged. Steve’s spoilers that same month claimed that Sean and Catherine get engaged in tonight’s finale, remain together, and are still very much engaged. But is he right?
If Steve is correct, it will be yet another season of the franchise in which his The Bachelor spoilers are correct, episode by episode, months in advance. And while fans and producers have sat back and watched Steve get his spoilers right season to season, the mystery of he does it remains unanswered.
While tonight may reveal who wins The Bachelor 2013 and if Steve was correct, it will not resolve a dispute between Steve and the producers. Months ago, the producers first sued Steve. Then the two parties settled. He agreed not to contact Bachelor staffers going forward.
Then weeks after Steve’s spoilers surfaced online, producers sued him again. He then moved to dismiss the action. He asserts that he should win an Anti-SLAPP motion, claiming that lawsuit against him has no basis. Producers then made a motion for an expedited discover to be taken upon Steve. At issue, they want to know from where exactly Steve is getting his Bachelor spoiler details.
As reported on LALATE previously, Steve lost that motion. Producers may now take discovery asking for correspondences, communications and more that Steve allegedly had in the weeks preceding his spoilers publication. Steve claims the lawsuit is without merit. And he claims that he does not do what producers are alleging. But Steve doesn’t give any hint of the source of his spoilers.
Producers assert that Steve allegedly “utilized … unlawfully obtained confidential information”. But where do producers claim the Bachelor 2013 spoilers came from? They assert that Steve “obtained at least some of the confidential information from The Bachelor’s upcoming seventeenth season, by contacting and soliciting information from participants, cast, crew and/or other employees of The Bachelor Series and by knowingly inducing them to breach their confidentiality obligations to Plaintiffs.” Steve claims that is not true.
They further claim that Steve was “fully aware of the confidentially obligations binding the participants, cast, and crew members of The Bachelor Series when they sought to induce them to divulge non-public information about the show in breach of their contracts.” Producers assert moreover that “Upon information and belief, as a proximate result of Defendants’ conduct, various participant, cast, crew members and/or other employees have breached their confidentiality obligations to Plaintiffs by providing Defendants with confidential, non-public information regarding The Bachelor Series episodes.”
Steve claims that Catherine Giudici wins tonight, gets engaged, and is still together with Sean Lowe. So while viewers tonight may find out who wins the Bachelor 2013, and if The Bachelor 2013 spoilers were correct, they won’t find out the source of such spoilers.
But as a Court recently ruled, producers may soon have those details. “Having considered the Parties’ papers, we hereby grant Plaintiffs’ Application for leave to conduct limited discovery [on RealitySteve] for the purposes of opposing Defendants’ Motion to Strike.” The motion to dismiss , originally set for determination this month, has been moved to May instead.
