Did Jimmy Kimmel Confirm The New Bachelorette Spoilers On Who Wins?
SPOILERS ahead from Hannah Brown's The Bachelorette 2019 Season 15.
Jimmy Kimmel may have been the first to correctly spoil who wins Bachelorette Hannah Brown's Season 15. You may have seen that the spoilers have changed on that front. Reality Steve got Bachelor Nation in a tizzy earlier this week when he reversed his call on Hannah's The Bachelorette 2019 ending. He still has Tyler Cameron and Jed Wyatt as her final two, but instead of Hannah being engaged to Tyler C., Steve said Hannah actually picked Jed in the end and they are engaged.
You know who called that a month ago? Jimmy Kimmel. Every season, Jimmy "predicts" who'll win The Bachelor or Bachelorette. It has become a bit of a nod to spoilers, since Jimmy usually picks whoever Reality Steve had already said would win. He "predicted" Cassie would win Colton's season of The Bachelor. He also "predicted" Garrett would win Becca's season of The Bachelorette last year. However, he also "predicted" delicious forever snack Peter would win Rachel's season of The Bachelorette, since those were the initial spoilers before Steve updated that he was wrong and Rachel would pick Bryan.
Maybe this time Jimmy Kimmel got a tip from a different source, as opposed to following Reality Steve? Maybe someone told him, nah, it's Jed not Tyler? 'Cause Jimmy already did the whole bit with Bachelorette Hannah last month, picking Jed in the end as her fiancé. He usually has a fake final two, and this time he had drama king Luke P. next to Jed, then had his cardboard Jed get down on one knee to propose.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! comments were initially filled with fans saying oops, Jimmy got it wrong this time, because we all believed the spoiler that Hannah had picked Tyler C. But maybe Jimmy had the right intel all along? We'll have to wait and see how this turns out. It's one way to keep us watching through stupid recap episodes until the end.
Reality Steve does seem to have a better spoiler track record for The Bachelor than The Bachelorette, but he ultimately gets it right in the end -- even if the updates come frustratingly late in the game. (They could always change again, although that's less likely now.)
This Jed Wyatt update is awkward, and not just because he already admitted he came on The Bachelorette for "The Wrong Reasons." He actually got points for telling Hannah that he was just there to promote his career as a musician. But did he tell her that he was already dating someone else when he went onto the show?
Jed's alleged ex-girlfriend, fellow Nashville musician Haley Stevens, has been speaking out to People and E! on their relationship. She told People that Jed also told her he was just going on The Bachelorette for his career:
Jed previously dating Haley for four months (twice as long as The Bachelorette films) probably wouldn't have made so many headlines if the spoilers hadn't changed to say Hannah picked him and they are engaged.
Sure, you could say Jed fell in love with Hannah on the show, but since Hannah confronted Scott on The Bachelorette 2019 night one for having a girlfriend back home, how is Jed any better? He's like Wes Hayden back on Bachelorette Jillian's season -- the first guy (also a musician) to be called out for supposedly having a girlfriend back home and just going on the show to promote his music.
If Hannah does pick Jed, this will certainly add him to the list of controversial winners. [The deepest of deep sighs...] But you know what, maybe Hannah will be perfectly happy with whoever she picked. The Bachelorette also has a better track record than The Bachelor on that front.
Some Bachelette fans are looking for a silver lining here, thinking maybe this new spoiler means hunky Tyler C. can be the next Bachelor. It does seem like Tyler is now in the frontrunner race with Peter and Mike.
The Bachelorette 2019 continues Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC. There's still plenty of Luke P. drama ahead, but don't let the promos fool you too much on that front.
