If you don’t want to know who Matt James picks on this season of The Bachelor, stop reading now. Seriously, right now. Literally do not scroll one micrometer farther. Go for a walk or pet a dog or stare out a window. Do anything but read this article. Because this is our Bachelor season 25 spoilers article, and we can’t be held liable for what happens if you read it.
You’re still here? Great, then let’s spoil. Reality Steve, the Bachelor franchise blogger who reports tips from inside the show that tend to be accurate, has revealed some tea on who Matt James might pick. In a post titled “Spoilers for Matt’s Season,” Steve reveals that after pandemic-related delays, the Bachelor franchise is reportedly back on schedule, and the next season of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise will both film and air at their usual times.
If you watched the premiere, you’ll remember the show teased that more women would be added to the cast. Steve reports that after rose ceremony number two, five women allegedly join the bubble: Brittany, Catalina, Kim, Michelle, and Ryan.
But let’s just skip to the end: Want to know who Matt James allegedly picks to make it to hometowns? Serena Pitt, Rachael Kirkconnell, and Michelle (one of the new additions) have reportedly been “confirmed” as three of the final four, and Bri Springs may be the fourth (though that’s “unconfirmed” at this time).
Per Steve’s sources, “Michelle and Rachael were final two, and Rachael wins.” And the reason we know Rachael wins is kind of funny: Apparently, everyone in her small home town of Cumming, Georgia, won’t stop talking about it. Reality Steve notes that a similar situation happened during Peter Weber’s season with contestant Madison Prewett. A local rumor spread that she had gotten engaged on the show–but that ended up not being true, so as always, take spoilers with a grain of salt. All the speculation is just in good fun!
