The Bachelor spoilers reveal the highlights of the rest of Colton Underwood's journey to find lasting love -- including his Final 4 bachelorettes and what happens in what may be the most shocking The Bachelor finale ending ever, as well as Colton's winner and his current relationship status with the woman he ended up with.
[Bachelor Spoilers Warning: Stop reading immediately if you do not want to learn who Colton picks as his final winner and the shocking end to Season 23. This article contains episode-by-episode Bachelor spoilers of will happen as the 2019 season of The Bachelor airs on ABC. It also contains Bachelor spoilers that reveal whether Colton is engaged and what is the current status of his relationship with the bachelorette winner he ended up with].
Colton and his Final 3 bachelorettes then allegedly traveled to Sagres, Portugal, for the overnight Fantasy Suite dates, which will be featured in Episode 9 of The Bachelor.
Carbone claims Colton will only take advantage of two Fantasy Suite dates instead of all three.
Carbone allegedly first enjoys an overnight date with Tayshia that taped on November 6 at the famous lighthouse on Cabo de Sao Vicente. The Bachelor's second Fantasy Suite date will be with Cassie, and their night together filmed on November 8.
Colton allegedly determines after his date with Cassie that she's the only girl whom he wants to continue dating. His heart was therefore sold early on in the process!
In seasons past, many leading men or women found themselves torn between their Final 2 bachelors or bachelorettes. Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Ben Higgins, for example, were completely distraught when having to choose between their Final 2 ladies.
After spending the night with Tayshia and then Cassie, Carbone revealed in his podcast in December 2018, "I was told... something happened on that overnight date that made Colton want to be with Cassie and basically end the show."
However, Cassie reportedly realizes 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 is allegedly when Colton jumps the fence and vents in frustration how he's "done" with the show, leaving host Chris Harrison panicking and calling for him several yards away.
"Cassie leaves the show on her overnight date because she doesn't want to be engaged. And Colton, obviously, is very upset," Carbone explained.
Despite Cassie's decision to leave the show prematurely, Colton allegedly chooses to forego an overnight date with Hannah G. -- who also allegedly has a good shot to become the next The Bachelorette star, according to Carbone.
Colton reportedly decides to dump both Hannah G. and Tayshia in the hope of making something work with Cassie in the real world.
There will therefore be no Final 3 Rose Ceremony or Final Rose Ceremony abroad shown on television this season.
Cassie and Colton spoilers
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.
Colton's desperate plea reportedly resulted in the couple choosing to continue dating together and taking an engagement off the table since Cassie is only 23 years old.
"I don't know how many days after [Cassie] left [Portugal it was], but they filmed something in [Los Angeles]. I'm assuming [in] Huntington Beach, where Cassie lives, because she lives with her parents in Huntington Beach," Carbone said.
"They filmed something in the States, where 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 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?
Carbone says Colton and Cassie are currently dating 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 a previous 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 on Instagram.
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 Colton's season -- including Hannah G.'s overnight date, the Final 2 women meeting with Colton's family, the Final 2 women's last one-on-one dates with Colton in Spain, and, of course, a Final Rose Ceremony.
Based on a trailer ABC released on February 11 for the rest of the season, however, they edit the footage to make it seem like there will be a final Rose Ceremony, as Colton was shown staring at the black box with a Neil Lane ring inside.
But there is still a lot of excitement and romance to unfold onThe Bachelor before the shocking ending of Season 23.
The next episode of Colton's season is set to air on Monday, February 18 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC and will feature seven bachelorettes battling to get four hometown dates as Colton welcomes them to his hometown of Denver, CO.
Before embarking on a series of dates, Colton will meet with fan-favorite The Bachelor star Ben Higgins for advice.
Colton will share his fear of being blindsided by a bachelorette who is either not in touch with her true self or is not ready for a commitment. In a similar sense, Ben feared he was unlovable or not enough for a woman.
Afterwards, Colton will enjoy a one-on-one date with Tayshia in which they explore the vibrant city of Denver.
Country music star Brett Young then builds the romance with a surprise concert for the couple.
Colton and Caelynn will dance the night away as Brett performs "Here Tonight," and then Carbone says Caelynn will receive a rose.
Colton and Hannah B. then look into the future by going house hunting and meeting up with Colton's parents at the last stop. What will Colton's parents have to say about the smitten Hannah B., who often calls herself a "beast?"
"What advice can Colton's Dad give him about handling this group of anxious women? The couple has a romantic dinner and the two discuss what their hometown date might be like," ABC teases.
"Everything seems perfect, but Colton fears something is missing. Is there a rose for a woman who has been a frontrunner from the start?"
According to Carbone, Colton actually eliminates Hannah B. during this date.
The four women left without roses will then travel to a cozy rest stop in the mountains with the Bachelor, but a shaken Colton is faced with deciding which women he can trust for this next important step of visiting their hometowns.
"One woman throws another under the bus as everyone's emotions run high, and it is left to Colton to make his toughest decision yet," says ABC.
Colton must judge the sincerity of these women in order to move forward, and then suddenly, a surprise visitor crashes the party to deliver important news that may affect the fate of the women.
Carbone claims Heather will choose to remove herself from the competition because she's not ready to bring Colton home to meet her family and then Hannah G. will receive a rose on the group date.
Heather has insisted she's ready for a committed relationship and lasting love, so was she not in touch with herself or was Colton simply not the man for her?
That will leave one rose up for grabs for either Cassie or Kirpa. Carbone says Colton gives Cassie the rose but he's not sure whether this will take place at a traditional Rose Ceremony.
Colton's decision will determine his Final 4 bachelorettes.
