By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/04/2019
The Bachelor spoilers reveal all the details everyone wants to know about Colton Underwood's 2019 season of The Bachelor -- from the bachelorettes who receive roses in every episode to Colton's eventual Final 4 women, and on through to who he picks as the winner of his final rose and if he is currently engaged.
[Bachelor Spoilers Warning: Stop reading immediately if you' would like who Colton picks as his final winner and the 2019 season's shocking ending to remain a surprise to you. This report contains episode-by-episode Bachelor spoilers of what will happen as ABC airs Season 23 of The Bachelor airs. In addition, it also contains Bachelor spoilers revealing whether Colton is engaged and the current status of his relationship with the winning bachelorette].
Colton's journey to find a fiancee -- and hopefully his future wife -- is getting more serious with each passing week.
Not only are deep connections developing, but Colton is also starting to have to make tough elimination decisions. As fans saw in the fourth episode, Colton decided to send home Tracy Shapoff and Courtney Curtis.
Episode 6 of The Bachelor will reportedly take place in Nha Trang, Vietnam, where Colton enjoys two one-on-one dates with Hannah G. and Kirpa, who both end up receiving a rose on their respective dates.
The rest of the bachelorettes will reportedly go on a jungle-inspired group date, and then Demi will be eliminated after visiting Colton's hotel room.
Carbone says Colton did not reciprocate Demi's strong feelings, and so he decides to let her go ahead of the Rose Ceremony.
But again, Colton finds himself at the mercy of his bachelorettes and their feelings for him when Sydney decides to quit the show because she's also missing a solid connection with Colton.
And then drama will unfold when two bachelorettes are reportedly thrown under a bus by Katie.
"Katie tells [Colton] that Caelynn and Cassie were talking about being the Bachelorette, they weren't genuine, and they weren't here for him and he wasn't happy. But he sends Katie home at the rose ceremony," Carbone claimed.
That will leave on seven girls in the running to become Colton's fiancee in Episode 7.
Hannah G's date was reportedly taped in Birmingham, AL, on October 27, and then Caelynn's date was taped in Fredericksburg, VA.
Caelynn and Colton were spotted and photographed enjoying a horse-drawn carriage on Princess Anne Street during her hometown date.
Tayshia's date was reportedly filmed in Orange County, CA, on October 31, followed by Cassie's date in Huntington Beach, CA, two days later on November 2.
Although fans watched Colton and Caelynn bond in the latest episode through an extremely personal conversation about Caelynn's traumatic past, Carbone reports the Bachelor cuts Caelynn at the Final 4 Rose Ceremony held in Los Angeles, CA, after the women's round of hometown dates.
But fans of Caelynn shouldn't be too disappointed because she allegedly has a great shot to become the next The Bachelorette star.
That reportedly leaves Hannah G., Tayshia and Cassie as Colton's Final 3 bachelorettes.
Colton and his Final 3 bachelorettes reportedly travel to Sagres, Portugal, for a week of overnight Fantasy Suite dates.
This is the part of the season when drama reaches a tipping point, and it just so happens to be at the time Colton was possibly looking to lose his virginity.
During filming, Colton allegedly took his Fantasy Suites dates very seriously, because he decided to take advantage of only two of them!
That's right. Colton passed on a third overnight Fantasy Suite date, according to Carbone, with the beautiful Hannah G.
Colton reportedly first enjoyed an overnight date with Tayshia that taped on November 6 at the famous lighthouse on Cabo de Sao Vicente.
And then the former football player's second Fantasy Suite date was with Cassie, and the romantic evening taped on November 8.
Colton reportedly determined at some point during his Fantasy Suite date with Cassie that she's the one for him!
This is why Colton's season is so different and shocking compared to seasons past, because most leading men and women of the franchise end up being torn between their Final 2 options. Take for instance Rachel Lindsay, Ben Higgins and Arie Luyendyk Jr.!
Cassie dumps Colton
Although Colton determined Cassie is the woman he wants to be with forever, Carbone revealed in his podcast in December 2018 that Cassie quit the show before Colton could even give her the final rose!
Cassie reportedly realized she's not ready to settle down or accept a Neil Lane diamond ring from Colton in the end.
"Cassie told him, 'I don't want to be engaged,'" Carbone disclosed in his podcast.
"She essentially pulled a [Peter Kraus]. Like, 'I'm 23, like, I don't want to be engaged.' And I'm being told -- and I can't 100 percent confirm this -- but I'm being told this is where the fence jump happened. Because on that overnight date, Cassie left the show."
Cassie's decision to quit was allegedly the moment when Colton jumped a fence and yelled he was "done" with the show, as previously shown in an ABC trailer for Season 23.
When Colton jumped the fence, he left Chris Harrison calling for him several yards away in a total panic. Harrison has said in interviews he may or may not have been part of the reason Colton jumped that fence.
Colton still dumps Hannah G. and Tayshia
Colton therefore reportedly decided to still dump both Hannah G. and Tayshia in the hope of making something work with Cassie in the real world. (He allegedly dumped Hannah before entering their Fantasy Suite).
As a result, Carbone suggests there will be no Final 3 Rose Ceremony or Final Rose Ceremony that will air on ABC.
According to Carbone, Cassie actually returned home to California after quitting the show -- and Colton then also returned to America and essentially chased her down.
The Bachelor's production crew reportedly filmed Colton tracking Cassie down in the Los Angeles area and telling her that he'd still like to be with her regardless of whether they get engaged.
Carbone is unsure how many days elapsed between Cassie's exit in Portugal and when cameras taped her in California, but he assumes production gathered in Huntington Beach, where Cassie lives with her parents.
"Colton comes to Cassie and basically says, 'We don't need to be engaged, but I want to be with you.' And that's where we are for right now," Carbone said.
Carbone had been hearing Cassie would probably be Colton's winner since mid-October. In fact, the spoiler blogger said from the start he would be "stunned" if Cassie didn't receive his final rose.
So are Colton and Cassie still together? What is the latest on their slow-moving romance?
Colton's desperate plea to Cassie reportedly resulted in the couple choosing to continue dating each other but taking an engagement off the table since Cassie is only 23 years old.
Carbone says Colton and Cassie are still together and will share a relationship update with fans in a couple of months when The Bachelor: After the Final Rose airs on ABC.
"My guess is Cassie is very young, and her feeling of, back in November, telling Colton, 'I'm not ready to be engaged,' [is] probably still going to stand in March. But that's just a guess. We'll see what happens," Carbone predicted.
However, Cassie appeared to play up the rumors and spoilers about her relationship with Colton in a recent Instagram post.
Cassie posted a photo of herself flipping a tire on the group date in which the girls had participated in a "Bachelor's Strongest Woman" contest.
"Caption Options: 1. When you gotta secure the ring 2. Get this ring away from me. I'm not ready for that...Or am I? 3. Hey @neillanejewelry ... do you make rings this big?" Cassie teased in the caption.
Maybe Cassie is ready for an engagement after all! Fans will probably be delighted to hear from them on After the Final Rose.
Carbone concluded his podcast last month by apologizing for previously incorrectly reporting Colton and Cassie were engaged.
"I apologize for reporting that they are engaged. They are not," Carbone said, referring to his initial set of spoilers that he had to correct.
"But he definitely chose Cassie, and they are definitely seeing each other, and have been seeing each other since the end of filming."
If the spoilers turn out to be accurate, Bachelor Nation will miss out on a lot of typical footage from The Bachelor season -- including the Final 2 women meeting with Colton's family and the Final 2 women's last one-on-one dates with Colton in Spain.
