The Bachelorette fans can’t wait to see how Tuesday night’s finale plays out for Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey. A lot of spoilers have been thrown around in the past few weeks, and viewers may think they already know what to expect. However, spoiler king Reality Steve just dropped an important tidbit that could change everything for one of these ladies.
Reality Steve typical tweets every episode of The Bachelorette, but he usually doesn’t drop bombs. Just before Tuesday night’s finals began, he did just that.
“(BREAKING SPOILER NEWS): Aven is at ATFR tonight and he’s going to ask Rachel out on a date after the show. I don’t think Rachel knows he’s there,” revealed Reality Steve. He continued, “I’m not sure I’ll buy this. More seems to be done to bring some joy to Rachel, ending the show a la Tyler C and asking Hannah Brown about her ATFR.
Reality Steve added tweet“Yes, Hannah asked Tyler C, but the point was, he knew what was coming.” He added more in another a few minutes later tweet regarding that massive “Bachelorette” spoiler. “The last tweet was not speculation regarding Aven. He shows up to ask her out. And I very much doubt Rachel will say no on live national television. America would hate her.” However, before “Bachelorette” fans get too upset about it, Reality Steve suggested that this might not be entirely sincere. “I’m just saying I don’t think Aven is doing this for anything other than production asking him to.”
The reaction of the “Bachelorette” fans to this development was prompt. One fan simply replied to Reality Steve Post a gif of a dumpster fire. Someone else tweeted, “I heard he’s coming for whoever’s available…”, along with a GIF of Blake Moynes. As “Bachelorette” fans will recall, Moynes was one of Clare Crawley’s suitors, stayed with Tayshia Adams’ run, and then reappeared for Katie Thurston’s season. He became engaged to Thurston, but their relationship imploded after a few months.
“She treated him badly, he should thank his lucky stars for dodging a bullet and move on,” said another “Bachelorette” fan recommended by Jones returning for Recchia.
“Aven is a goalkeeper. Rachel had better not break his heart again.” added someone else.
“No one should be anyone’s consolation prize. I hope that doesn’t happen (and I like both)” tweeted another viewer.
Could this really turn into something positive after such a difficult season for Recchia? Or could that crash and burn as quickly as Brown and Cameron did during their Bachelorette season?
While it hasn’t happened on The Bachelorette, there is precedent for a successful reunion of a lead and a runner-up in the franchise. That happened to both Jason Mesnick and Arie Luyendyk, Jr. during their seasons, and both men remain happily married and have children with their former runners-up. It’s too early to speculate that the same could happen with Recchia and Jones, but many “Bachelorette” fans are excited to see how that plays out.
