Bachelor finale spoilers have leaked out unveiling The Bachelor's ending for 2022 -- including spoilers revealing what happens with Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia, if Susie Evans returns, whom Clayton Echard picks as his winner, and whether The Bachelor star gets engaged or ends up single.


[Bachelor Spoilers: This report contains spoilers revealing how Clayton's The Bachelor season ends and if Clayton picks a winner or ends up alone.]

The Bachelor finale will air as a two-night event on Monday, March 14 at 8PM ET/PT and Tuesday, March 15 also at 8PM ET/PT on ABC. The Tuesday-night episode will also feature the After the Final Rose special.


At this point in Clayton's journey to find his soul mate, only two women remain: Gabby Windey, a 30-year-old ICU nurse from Denver, CO, and Rachel Recchia, a 25-year-old flight instructor from Clermont, FL.

Susie Evans, a 28-year-old wedding videographer from Virginia Beach, VA, abruptly left the show during her Fantasy Suite date with Clayton because of how he had behaved earlier in the week.

When Clayton enjoyed his first two Fantasy-Suite dates with Rachel and Gabby in Iceland, he slept with both women and also told them how he was in love with them.

Clayton ultimately confessed to Susie that he was "the most" in love with her, but she was too heartbroken about his choices to continue on in the Season 26 process.

Susie had been hoping Clayton would save himself for her and prove his love, so she felt extremely let down. Susie needed Clayton to essentially woo her in order for her to feel good about possibly accepting a marriage proposal in one week, and he didn't pass the test.

But before Susie could quit the show, Clayton beat her to the punch and said he was "done" with her and she had totally "invalidated" everything about their relationship.

Clayton scolded Susie for not sharing her dealbreaker and/or ultimatum with him sooner, and he couldn't believe that she wasn't willing to forgive him and give him another chance.

Due to Clayton's angry reaction, like when he said he didn't even know who he was looking at anymore, the Bachelor has been accused of gaslighting Susie.

"Because of my faith, I believe everything happens for a reason," Clayton told Susie. "And I'm just going to take that and move forward in my life... At some point, I'll end up finding somebody who will actually stick through it and will understand me for who I am and will fight for me as much as I fight for them."

Clayton concluded, "I thought you were that person and you're not that person. This is how it's supposed to end, and I'm done."

In her final words, Susie expressed how she thought Clayton would have treated her with more grace and compassion.


Now that only Gabby and Rachel remain on the show and the ladies are unaware of Clayton's love profession to Susie, what happens next?

Does Clayton continue on and actually choose a winner and propose marriage, or does he walk away from the show alone and crushed?

Previously-eliminated The Bachelor bachelorette Teddi Wright, apparently knowing details about the finale, told Clayton at the end of The Women Tell All special that she hopes he's "okay."

Teddi's comment suggests Clayton journey did not end happily, so keep reading for all the spoilers out there about Clayton's season and how The Bachelor's 2022 season reportedly ends. 

Gabby and Rachel have emotional breakdowns over Clayton's love for three women

In a preview of the upcoming two-night finale event, Clayton addresses Gabby and Rachel at the Rose Ceremony following Fantasy Suite dates in Reykjavik, Iceland.

With two roses on a podium, Clayton announces, "I am in love with each of you, and I also was intimate with both of you."

Gabby and Rachel are both shown crying as a result, with Rachel saying, "I never thought he could be in love with all three of us -- IN love!"

Gabby also laments, "I can't believe anything you say -- not one thing!"

And Rachel calls her reaction "the worst feeling" she's ever had, before Clayton breaks down in a confessional about feeling "so broken."

Even Clayton's own father, Brian, tells the Bachelor that he "screwed the pooch" in this situation.

"I wish I never would've fallen in love," Clayton admits to his parents in tears.

The Bachelor host Jesse Palmer teased a huge shocker at the end

Jesse recently told Us Weekly that there was going to be something shocking on Clayton's The Bachelor season, and it's unclear whether he was referring to Susie's dramatic exit during her Fantasy-Suite date.

"You're going to have to tune in and watch," Jesse teased in late January 2022.

Jesse pointed out how The Bachelor's producers and editing team are "very smart" with "respect to what they're putting out and how they're editing everything and putting it together."


"But there are multiple, multiple moments that I think are gonna be very, very eye-opening for our viewers at home," Jesse explained.

And the Season 5 The Bachelor star continued, "I know we always say, 'It's the most dramatic season,' [but] Clayton's season [is] the most dramatic season ever because there's so many things that have never happened before."

The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss says Clayton's season is "totally spoiler proof"

While The Bachelor was airing its seventh episode on February 21, Mike took to Twitter with a jaw-dropping tweet.

"Major Historic Announcement!" The Bachelor creator and executive producer wrote.

"This season's finale of #TheBachelorABC is totally spoiler-proof. No one knows how it will end, cuz it ain't over til it's over! And it ain't over..."

The tweet suggests Clayton did not get engaged at the end of his season, nor did the small-town medical sales representative and former college football player select a winner at the Final Rose Ceremony.

Spoilers about Clayton's time in Iceland leaked out in February

On December 16, Carbon wrote in his blog that he didn't know the ending of Clayton's The Bachelor season yet, although he figured Clayton was "most likely engaged."

"I've heard rumblings about all three since filming ended," Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone reported at the time.

He added, "I'm leaning towards one person based on info told to me, but again, until I get the confirmation I need, there's no need to tell people what I'm 'hearing.'"

Carbone assured his readers late last year that when he's confident in who Clayton picked, he'd let the world know.

Carbone went on to report on February 21 that he was convinced Clayton is NOT with Rachel, that he didn't pick Rachel in Iceland or leave Iceland with her.

Carbone was also pretty sure at the time that Clayton did not get engaged and that The Bachelor did not have a traditional ending, meaning there was "no finality" in Iceland with Clayton selecting a winner out of two remaining bachelorettes and possibly getting engaged.

In addition, Carbone said he had been led to believe Clayton hasn't had any "happy couple visits" since filming ended.

The Bachelor alum Peter Weber thinks Clayton ended up alone and single

After falling in love with multiple bachelorettes, Peter's The Bachelor season ended with the pilot proposing marriage to Hannah Ann Sluss, but he broke off the engagement while his season was airing in early 2020.

Peter briefly reunited with his The Bachelor frontrunner Madison Prewett -- who quit his season before the Final Rose Ceremony -- when they filmed The Bachelor: After the Final Rose, but the pair announced two days later they were going to go their separate ways.


Carbone was unable to spoil the ending of Peter's season.

"My heart goes out to Clayton so much because I relate to Clayton in so many ways," Peter recently said on Us Weekly's "Here for the Right Reasons" podcast.

"It's almost a little bit of PTSD for me, being pulled back into it, because I've been in that exact situation."

Peter shared the following prediction: "I hate to say this [but I think Clayton] ends up with no one and that it was supposed to be Rachel."

Peter suspected that Rachel was going to lose it after Fantasy Suites and Clayton's decisions about sex and love, but it was obviously Susie whom those revelations destroyed.

"[I predict Rachel] loses it, and then who knows if they all walk away or how it ends -- or maybe he walks away because it was mainly Rachel," Peter reasoned.

"But I'm hoping that's not the case, but that's how I kind of think it ends. And then I could see either Susie or Gabby being the Bachelorette."

Considering Clayton revealed in late November he had found love, Peter believes that's further evidence Clayton may have left The Bachelor 26 without a girlfriend or fiancee.

"I saw an interview where he was like, 'Yeah, I fell in love.' And that was very shocking to me because normally you're not supposed to say that and give it away," Peter shared with Us.

"And I think it's gonna be more of he found himself, a self-love type situation, like, he learned a lot about himself, and he is really excited about progressing and finding something in the future. We will see."

Clayton has claimed he's "happy" despite the chaotic ending to his season

Clayton has said in the press how he's happy and in a good headspace after filming The Bachelor, with the exception of dealing with a lot of backlash and hate from fans.

"I definitely was not perfect. I did some things wrong," Clayton recently told Us Weekly.

But that doesn't mean Clayton has a desire to rewrite history or take any of his decisions back.

"I think for me, I realized that I can't say that I have any regrets because if I would've done things differently, would it have been my 100 percent authentic journey? And I think the answer to that is no," Clayton explained.

"So what I did and every moment while I was there was what I thought was right. Does that mean it was right? Probably not, no."


Clayton said while he's an imperfect human and made some wrong moves, "I did everything under my volition and what I thought was best."

"And so for that, I'm like, 'You know what? You stayed true to yourself, and you developed some battle scars along the way, but that's just what life is,'" he shared.

Clayton's winner has finally been revealed!

When Carbone reported in a March 8 blog post that Susie left Clayton after their overnight Fantasy Suite date in Iceland, he said she never technically left Iceland or the show for good.

Susie, at some point, was reportedly "convinced" to return, either by producers or Clayton, because she was present for the Final Rose Ceremony.

"The only thing I think I know, is that Final Rose Ceremony day, only Susie was there," Carbone reported.

"I haven't heard anything about there being a Final 2 and he chose Susie over someone else."

The details of how Gabby and Rachel exited the show remain unveiled -- including whether the women quit on their own accord or Clayton denied one or both of them roses in Iceland.

However, Carbone reported that Susie was the only woman at the Final Rose Ceremony and so she was Clayton's winner.


Susie breaks ground and makes history on The Bachelor this season

According to Carbone, Rachel and Gabby have no part of the ending and Susie did something viewers have never seen on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette before.

Clayton reportedly proposed marriage to Susie at the Final Rose Ceremony -- and she said "no" and rejected him!

"The Susie rejection of [Clayton]'s proposal at the end was not a 'F-ck you' from what I've heard," Carbone reported on March 8, adding, "I have no idea what was said and the details of how exactly it went down."

Carbone heard that Clayton got down on one knee and popped the question, only to have Susie reject him and turn him down.

"But [Susie rejecting Clayton was] moreso in a 'I can't do this' manner than anything harsh or contentious," Carbone claimed.

Is there a chance Susie and Clayton reconciled after the Final Rose ceremony?

Based on everything he has heard, Carbone believes Clayton is currently single.

Carbone has not heard anything about Clayton and Susie getting back together or spending time together recently, and he also doesn't think Clayton tried to win Gabby or Rachel back.

"If there's anything happening post show with any of the women, it'd be with Susie, but I don't see it, nor has it ever been mentioned to me," Carbone revealed.

Susie is also reportedly a favorite to become the next The Bachelorette star.

If Susie had reconciled with Clayton or is strongly considering the possibility of giving Clayton another chance and dating him again, she wouldn't be in contention to become the next Bachelorette.

However, it's possible Clayton wants Susie back and she's deciding what to do -- either be with Clayton again or potentially star on Season 19 of The Bachelorette, which reportedly begins filming next weekend.

But Carbone said there's no confirmation Susie has been chosen as The Bachelorette star and so fans shouldn't run with that information.

"That's just the name I was hearing... I don't know who it is," Carbone said of the next Bachelorette. "[Producers must] make a decision soon, if they haven't already. If/when I hear, I will let you know."

Clayton has promised his season will have an ending

During a mid-March appearance on Kaitlyn Bristowe's "Off the Vine" podcast, Clayton shared how there will be a "definite answer" about how his season ends on Tuesday, March 15 when ABC airs The Bachelor: After the Final Rose, according to Us Weekly.

"Nobody has the slightest clue of what's going to happen," Clayton teased.

"Again, I'm online a lot, and I'll just say that I haven't even seen one person get it right. That's the way I'll tease it. Everyone's making these judgments, and no one was even close to correctly pinning what happened."

Clayton continued, "I would just tell people to reserve judgment until they see the full story and then I think people will understand why I've done everything that I've done."

And Jesse told Us recently that he "thought" he knew how The Bachelor was going to end once they wrapped filming in Iceland but now "we really don't know what's about to happen."

"Coming up on After the Final Rose on a two-night live event, I seriously don't know what is going to happen," Jesse said.

"We're literally walking into that sort of blind, and the producers are too, and we're just gonna see what happens. I'm excited. I'm also a little bit nervous because I just don't know where it's going to go."
