Did Colton Underwood Accidentally Spoil Who Wins ‘The Bachelor?’

After a season full of crying and surprise exits, we are one step closer to finding out who Bachelor Colton Underwood ends up with.

We are down to three contestants, Tayshia Adams, Hannah Godwin, and Cassie Randolph. As we go into fantasy suites week, fans have been wondering who will steal Underwood’s heart and his much talked about virginity.

If you’ve made it this far without reading any spoilers or listening to any theories about who the winner is, then congrats, that is certainly no small feat.

But even if you actively avoided finding out who the winner is before the finale, Underwood may have just spoiled everything.


Last week, the paparazzi released some pictures of Underwood leaving the gym. This would have been no big deal had Underwood not been walking out of the gym with Gregg Sulkin, who is dating contestant Randolph’s sister!

When the photos were released, Twitter was not having it.

“Did paparazzi photos of Gregg Sulkin, who’s dating Cassie Randolph’s sister Michelle, with Colton Underwood accidentally just spoil The Bachelor,” one user tweeted.

Even Reality Steve, who is almost always right about who wins, jumped in on the discussion.

“(SPOILER): Not that you didn’t know this 3 months ago, but yet again, social media spoils again,” he wrote. “Yeah, Colton’s working out with Jake Miller. But how about the third guy in the pic who just so happens to be the boyfriend of Cassie’s sister. Doh!”

But others were confused, given some of the promos that the show has released.

“How convenient Gregg Sulkin is with Cassie’s sister,” another user wrote. “He is Colton Underwood’s work out buddy. #TheBachelor very confusing because of spoiler Cassie in limo crying.”

Bachelor spoilers in the past

This wouldn’t be the first time that The Bachelor has been spoiled for viewers.

During Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette, she snapchatted a video of contestant Shawn Booth in her bed before the finale aired. We aren’t sure why she did this exactly, but she quickly deleted the video.

Unfortunately, Bachelor Nation had already taken enough screenshots to make sure that everyone saw the images.

Before going on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, contestants must sign a very lengthy contract that has strict rules regarding talking about what happens on the show. Contestants aren’t allowed to discuss what happened at all, not even with their family members.

Sources have also said that the leads on the show can be fined up to $5 million for breaking their contracts.

Luckily for Bristowe, ABC decided not to fine her. In this case, Underwood probably won’t be fined if it turns out that Randolph is, in fact, the winner because he did not directly post the image.

Preventing Bachelor spoilers

The show goes through a lot of precautions to make sure the winners aren’t revealed until the finale. After the final rose ceremony is filmed, the lead is not allowed to be seen out in public with the winner until the finale airs.

Production will usually set up dates for the two to go on and send them to a secret cabin to spend time together until they can go out in public.
