Back in June, at the beginning of The Bachelorette
season 6, blogger Reality Steve cited his inside sources as saying that Ali left her Bachelorette journey a single woman
. Since then, so many competing spoilers
have left us confused and wondering what would actually go down during tonight's finale. Now, the day of the finale, Steve made sure he got the last spoiler word in before ABC airs Ali's final decision, and he's changed his tune about what's to come for Ali's romantic fate. Better late than wrong, right?

conclusion? Then stop reading. Want to know what Reality Steve's sources are saying
now? Keep reading ...
Long story short: Congratulations, Team Roberto. He's the one coming out of tonight's finale with Ali's heart, according to Reality Steve's apologetic sources, who previously told him Ali left the show single.
To quote Reality Steve's latest post
, here's what he claims will happen in tonight's finale, and why all the promos hint at a "shocking" finale unlike one we've ever seen on The Bachelor
before:"They tried to keep this as hidden as they could, and I will give them credit, they were awfully good about it this season. It took me a month to even get to the 'She's either with Roberto or she's single' conclusion, which I printed in June. Then three days later I went with 'She's single.' That is not the case.
You know this 'shocking ending' and 'something we've never seen before in the finale' they've been talking about? They were never talking about the actual outcome of the show--an engagement, single, dating, etc. What they're talking about is Chris Lambton never makes it to the final rose ceremony. Hence the reason we've never seen footage of Roberto and/or Chris at the final rose ceremony standing there with Ali. They never had any footage of Chris, so if they only showed Roberto there with her, that would've given it away. Ali tells Chris during their last chance date that Roberto is the one she's in love with. She doesn't want to hurt him by having him go through all the pomp and circumstance of walking up there, possibly proposing, yada yada yada, so she eliminates him right then and there, and Chris is never part of the final rose ceremony. She basically puts all her eggs in one basket in hopes that Roberto reciprocates her feelings. That's the 'risk' she is talking about.
The rest is where it gets tricky. They're going to make it seem like Roberto is indecisive, he doesn't know what to do, he's not sure of his feelings for Ali, etc. Basically all these 'doom and gloom' promos ABC has been running the last week making you think it's such a horrible ending for every party involved. However, in the end, Ali and Roberto are together, they are happy, and they are planning a life together--whatever that means. They left Bora Bora an engaged couple and are still together right now. I am sorry for reporting for the last month she was single."
Steve goes on to say that the next Bachelor
gig is Chris Lambton's for the taking if he wants it and predicts that both Ali and Roberto will appear on Dancing with the Stars
this fall. He also says this retraction doesn't mean he got "Fleissed" by Bachelor
producer Mike Fleiss, and viewers can look forward to him spoiling next season's ending
when it rolls around.
What do you think of this new info about tonight's finale? Happy, sad, surprised? Or are you in "I'll believe it when I see it" mode at this point? At least you won't have to wait too long to find out. Until then, there are still plenty of unknowns to predict in our Bachelorette Finale Prediction Party Game!
