'The Bachelor' spoilers: Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s winner and Final 2 pick -- Plus what's the shocking finale ending??
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/26/2018
The Bachelor spoilers for the 2018 season give away what's going to happen over the final two rounds of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s search for love, including the identity of his winner and whether the couple is still currently together.
The Bachelor: The Women Tell All special just aired on Sunday night, and Arie had to face a room full of his ex-girlfriends, some of whom were angry at or disappointed in him.
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Arie chose Becca as his winner.
Arie not only gave Becca his final rose at the final Rose Ceremony held in Cusco, Peru, but he also allegedly proposed marriage with a Neil Lane diamond engagement ring, and she accepted.
Arie's runner-up, according to Carbone, was Lauren. That means Kendall finished in third place and was booted after her overnight Fantasy Suite date with Arie.
During The Women Tell All special, however, Caroline was shown confronting Arie with tears in her eyes, saying, "So, I mean, this whole time you've said that you're here because you're trying to find a wife. I know what you did, and I don't know how you could do that. And I just really don't understand."
A source then told Carbone on January 16 that Arie had broken up with Becca and was headed to Virginia Beach to film, where Lauren's mother currently resides. Sure enough, a photo surfaced online hours later of ABC vans parked outside of Lauren's mother's home.
"This is what happened. It's not wrong... If you honestly think I'm reporting this based off a hunch, or some wishful thinking, or something to stir the pot, then you don't know how I function," Carbone wrote in his blog of this season's shocking conclusion.
"The guy who whined to us about not being in love for five years since [Emily Maynard]. The guy who's now a matured man and is 'not looking for someone to date, is looking for my wife,' couldn't give it more than TWO MONTHS with [Becca]."
The next The Bachelor episode airs Monday, February 26 at 8PM ET/PT.
"More torn than ever, Arie acknowledges that he has fallen in love with two incredible women and has professed his love to both," ABC reveals. "However, a blockbuster surprise threatens to derail Arie's fairy tale ending."
According to Carbone, Becca's ex-boyfriend, whom she had dated on and off for seven years, shows up trying to win the brunette beauty back.
The mystery man, Ross Jirgl -- who currently works as a sports performance coach for the Stanford University football team -- interrupts Arie's time with the women in Peru to actually propose marriage to Becca. Ross believes that Becca is the love of his life, and he wasn't ready to let her go.
However, Becca chose to stick with her Arie relationship and ultimately accept his proposal.
Becca risks it all for what she believed was true love with Arie, but now she's probably single and alone, having lost a potential relationship with two men.
As for the dates to be shown in the next episode, Arie will kick off his time in Peru with a dune-buggy ride with Kendall.
That night, the pair will have a more serious conversation, with Kendall opening up and being more vulnerable than ever.
Kendall will explain how she's always been the "novelty girl" for guys, or the "quirky" one, says ABC, and she makes sure that Arie takes her seriously. When Arie assures her that their romance is special, she reveals she's falling in love with him.
On Arie subsequent date with Lauren, the couple will receive a tour of the Nazca Lines from the air, but Lauren will find herself shutting down in fear of eventually getting heard. Lauren considers quitting the show, but Arie won't let her go.
Lauren drops "a bombshell," the network teases, and later that night, Arie will convince Lauren of his true feelings with "an extremely emotional declaration."
Arie's third date with Becca will feature the pair exploring the rich marine life around the Ballestas Islands, just off the southern coast of Peru. Becca will also disclose her feelings to Arie while cuddling in a tent under the stars.
Once Becca confesses her love to Arie, he will in turn express his feelings to the bachelorette.
The next day, viewers will be introduced to Ross, when he comes storming onto The Bachelor set, making for "one of the most dramatic twists in history," says ABC.
The visitor will attempt to upset Arie's "dreams of a happily ever after," and "a series of intense confrontations will follow." Arie will then have to determine his Final 2 ladies.
