This story contains episode-by-episode Bachelor spoilers of what occurs on the 2019 season of The Bachelor as it airs on ABC. It also contains Bachelor spoilers that reveal if Colton is engaged and the current status of his relationship with his final winning bachelorette].
Colton's journey so far on The Bachelor has been smooth sailing, but that will definitely change, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
After a messy and unique conclusion of Season 23 in which Colton gets his heart broken, The Bachelor star is reportedly happy and currently in a relationship.
But is he in love? Is he engaged? And which bachelorette won his heart?
Carbone claims Caelynn will have a good shot to become the nextThe Bachelorette star, as her heartwrenching story will resonate with viewers. It's also clear she's very likeable and sincere, except for Hannah B.'s allegations she is fake.
Colton and his Final 3 bachelorettes then travel to Sagres, Portugal, for a week of overnight Fantasy Suite dates.
This is the part of the season when drama will reach a tipping point, and it just so happens to be at the time Colton may be looking to lose his virginity.
During filming, Colton allegedly took advantage of only two Fantasy Suite dates, instead of the usual three.
Colton first enjoyed an overnight date with Tayshia that taped on November 6 at the famous lighthouse on Cabo de Sao Vicente, Carbone reports.

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!
Carbone says Colton made up his mind about being in love with only Cassie before he even had a chance to enjoy an overnight date with the gorgeous Hannah G.
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 Ben Higgins and Arie Luyendyk Jr.!
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 a trailer for the season that ABC had released.
When Colton jumped the fence, he left Chris Harrison calling for him several yards away in a total panic.
Colton therefore reportedly decided to 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.
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 fromThe Bachelorseason -- 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.
Now, let's circle back to Episode 4, which is the next broadcast of The Bachelor's 23rd season airing on Monday, January 28 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
Colton and his group of bachelorettes will be shown traveling to Singapore, a booming multicultural metropolis that mixes big city luxury with interesting Chinese heritage. ABC called it "a spectacular international trip."
Colton's week will be full of intense conversations and surprises over the course of two one-on-one dates and a group date. And according to ABC, one "personal" conversation in particular "changes everything" for Colton.
The first date of the week will be for Tayshia, and Colton will take her bungee jumping to conquer their fears together.
Tayshia, however, has trouble enjoying the date because she's apprehensive about revealing a past failure in her life -- a failed marital relationship.
Once Tayshia opens up to Colton, she will receive a rose on her date, says Carbone.
For the group date, Colton and 13 bachelorettes will explore the city's colorful street markets, but the girls' courage and spontaneity will be put to the test when confronted with opportunities to eat exotic dishes such as bullfrogs and fish eyes.
The girls will also stop by a leech therapy center.
ABC teases Demi will work to "overshadow" her competition and then show off a more serious and mature side to Colton during the afterparty.
But Demi can't get what she wants without stepping on others' toes, as she will interrupt Courtney's time with The Bachelor star.
Fireworks fly when "two women double down and drama heats up," according to the network.
The week's second one-on-one date with be with Caelynn, and she will reportedly deliver the highly-anticipated personal story.
But first, Caelynn will be treated to a posh designer and high-end shopping spree in which she'll try on stunning dresses by Lisa Von Tang.
At dinner that night, a serious discussion unfolds in which "intensely personal memories" will be shared.
What Caelynn tells Colton will be one of the most emotional, open and vulnerable conversations The Bachelor franchise has ever seen, according to Carbone.
Caelynn will open up about a traumatic story in which she had been a victim of sexual assault on her college campus when she was 22 years old.
Caelynn has publicly discussed her past before because helping rape victims was actually her platform for the Miss USA pageant. Caelynn has made an effort to educate survivors given women may not know what to do after such encounters.
Because Caelynn opens up to Colton so freely, he will apparently share a big reveal from his own life as well.
At the cocktail party, the two long-time pageant rivals, Caelynn and Hannah B., strike a conciliatory note, but the feuding continues between Demi and Courtney, who face off in "one of biggest showdowns of the season," ABC teases of the next episode.
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 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.
Tayshia, Caelynn and Hannah B. will each reportedly receive a one-on-one date with Colton during this episode.
Colton and Tayshia will be shown walking around Union Station with Colton's dog Sniper and enjoying some drinks and ice cream.
