SPOILER ALERT: Bored Canadian Man Deduces 'The Bachelor' Winner

A Canadian Youtube user has posted a video using promotional clips of The Bachelor to figure out who the final winner is.

Only two episodes into this season of The Bachelor, we're nowhere near seeing Jason Mesnick's final decision on air. But the finale (which includes an engagement) was taped weeks ago, and now the ABC video editors are probably kicking themselves for all their promotional clips making liberal use of the final proposal.

No doubt aboot it: the spoiler video is, as the man puts it, “proof I have too much time on my hands.” But that doesn't mean we're not interested…

Read on to see the video spoiler (maybe) showing the Winner of The Bachelor 2009!

So there you have it: the “Pinky Ring Theory” points to the winner. Of course, we can't be sure. It's not exactly an airtight theory. The Bachelor is exactly the type of program that would purposefully psyche us all out by filming Jason fake-proposing to all the final contestants, or giving all the women matching pinky rings for the final episode, or… something like that.

Does knowing (or thinking you know) who the winner is actually affect the way you watch The Bachelor? I'm just as likely to watch (or not watch) now as I was before. For this spoiler to have any relevance, we need to know the contestants well, and care about who Jason picks. It's still a bit too early in the season for that.

Plus, I could argue that The Bachelor isn't about a surprise ending—it's about love. Watching a true-life love story unfold, even when you know who ends up happily ever after, is still a special, heart-warming experience.

But I won't argue that. Because that would make me a total cornball. And this is still The Bachelor we're talking about.

So, if you watch the video, take it with a grain of salt, and don't let it sway you when you pick your favorites on this season of The Bachelor. That could just ruin the fun!

Or, here's a thought: use this information to start a high-stakes gambling pool among your friends, and put all your money on Ms. Pinky Ring. Now we're talking.
