The Bachelor spoilers reveal Colton Underwood's alleged winner, and viewers should apparently prepare themselves for a shocking, never-before-seen ending.
[The Bachelor Spoilers Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want to find out the details of the ending of Season 23 of The Bachelor that will air on ABC in 2019 -- including the identity of the bachelorette Colton Underwood reportedly picked as his winner and ended up with in the finale!]
Did Colton find love? And did the 26-year-old charity founder and former professional football player's journey to find "The One" end with an engagement?
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Colton is in fact engaged to the winner of his season, and his fiancee is Cassie Randolph, a 23-year-old teacher and speech-language pathology grad student from Huntington Beach, CA.
Cassie is an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher at an adult school who graduated from Biola University in 2016 with a B.S. in Communication Sciences. Cassie's sister Michelle is apparently dating Gregg Sulkin, who was previously linked to actress Bella Thorne.
But Colton allegedly did not give Cassie his final rose in the traditional sense at the Final Rose Ceremony during which a Bachelor typically dumps his runner-up bachelorette moments beforehand.
Carbone reports that after Colton embarked on only two of his planned three overnight Fantasy Suite dates in Sagres, Portugal -- the first with Tayshia Adams, a 28-year-old fitness instructor from Newport Beach, CA, and the second with Cassie -- he decided he wanted to pursue a romance with only Cassie.
In a Bachelor first, Colton therefore had his mind made up before finishing out his round of overnight Fantasy Suite dates.
That means Colton did not even enjoy an overnight Fantasy Suite date with the other woman in his Final 3, Hannah Godwin, a 23-year-old media manager from Birmingham, AL.
Tayshia's overnight date with Colton reportedly filmed on November 6 near the famous lighthouse on Cabo de Sao Vicente.
And then on November 8, Colton enjoyed his overnight date with Cassie, according to Carbone.

"A decision was made on this overnight, or maybe the next morning when he woke up... that Cassie was the one he wanted to be with," Carbone wrote in his blog.
"I'm sure she thought they were [going to] go on one, but at some point after his date with Cassie, he told Hannah that Cassie is the one he's in love with, wanted to pursue, and sent Hannah home. He also told this to Tayshia. I'm not sure what order he did it in."
Once both girls were eliminated, Colton allegedly proposed marriage to Cassie, although the time and place of their engagement remains unclear.
Carbone initially thought the Final Rose Ceremony filmed on November 15 in Spain, but he now admits he could have been wrong and Colton may never have taped a formal Final Rose Ceremony. In fact, Colton and the cast may never have traveled to Spain at all.
Caelynn was reportedly eliminated on November 3 at the Final 4 Rose Ceremony held in Los Angeles, CA, following the women's round of hometown dates that were filmed between October 27 and November 2.
Since filming allegedly wrapped early onThe Bachelor, it's unclear how ABC will alter its broadcast schedule for Season 23, which premieres Monday, January 7 at 8PM ET/PT.
In all prior 22 seasons of The Bachelor, a show's star has always had two women approach him at the Final Rose Ceremony, leading up to his final decision.
"Not only do we not have a Final Rose Ceremony with two women, we don't even have a FINAL THREE Rose Ceremony this season, since Tayshia and Hannah were eliminated by Colton before it even got to that point," Carbone alleged.
If Carbone's reporting proves to be accurate, The Bachelor will have a lot of footage missing from Season 23 -- including Hannah's overnight date, the Final 2 women meeting with Colton's family, and the Final 2 women's last dates with Colton in an exotic destination.
