Tonight, Bachelor Ben will finally make his decision of who he wants to spend the rest of his life with. He will propose to one of the two finalists. He has professed his love to both of these ladies- Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher.
Chris Harrison always says this, but of course, "This will be the most dramatic episode of The Bachelor ever!"
The episode tonight will begin with each woman having a date with Ben in Jamaica. They will meet with his parents, and Ben will talk with his parents about his struggles over which one to choose. He will, of course, break one of their hearts, and will go on to propose to the other. There will be an After the Rose show so that everyone can talk about Ben's decision, and according to the previews, he will reveal another surprise. The new candidate for The Bachelorette will also be revealed.
If you want to live stream the show, go to abc.go.com. The unfortunate part is that ABC's live stream isn't available in all areas, and for all tv providers. Live video is available in Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham and San Francisco(again, only if you are a customer of a participating tv provider). If you are in the category of not being able to watch it live on-line, you might have to wait a week before ABC releases it to be watched without needing to sign in with a participating cable company. You can also catch clips on the ABC Facebook page tonight.
Now for spoilers. Don't read further if you don't wish to know who Ben is supposed to choose tonight.
According to Reality Steve, the winner of Ben's heart is Lauren Bushnell. He stated, "Ben is with Lauren, he's been with Lauren ever since Nov. 18th in Jamaica, they are engaged, and they are happy."
It was pretty apparent from the start that Lauren would be the choice. She was even the first one to arrive in the limo on the first episode. Ben talks about his attraction to her from the first moment he saw her many times on the show.
As for the next Bachelorette contestant, Caila Quinn was apparently talked about as being the next contestant for a couple of weeks, but Reality Steve reported that ABC changed their minds. He says, "I received correspondence from someone telling me that Caila received a phone call Thursday night from producers who told her they were changing their mind and decided to go with JoJo as the 'Bachelorette.'" Steve added, "As for Caila and why she was filming in Ohio on March 3rd? Basically, she got played. They led her to believe it was her, she was convinced it was her, they shot her intro package that day in Ohio, then they told her at pretty much the last minute, 'We decided to go with JoJo.' From everything I've heard, Caila is not happy, nor should she be. However, when you're dealing with the slime that are these producers, you should always prepare yourself for the worst so that when it inevitably happens, you're not disappointed."
Now JoJo Fletcher is said to be the next Bachelorette.
