'The Bachelorette' spoilers change again! Hannah Brown's status with her winner pick has allegedly taken another shocking new turn!
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/02/2019
The Bachelorette spoilers continue to change as new developments occur, so if you thought you knew how Hannah Brown's 2019 season The Bachelorette will end based on what you read last month or even last week, think again!
A shocking new update on Hannah's post-finale relationship with her winning bachelor pick has been revealed.
[Bachelorette Spoilers Warning: Stop reading now if you don't want to find out the bachelor Hannah Brown picked and ended up with at the end of her 2019 season of The Bachelorette and whether she is currently in a relationship and engaged with her final pick].
The Bachelorette viewers who haven't kept up with spoilers since Hannah's season premiered probably find it hard to imagine whom Hannah picked at the end of her journey to find love given she has formed a physical and emotional connection with all four of her remaining bachelors going into hometown dates.
Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone initially reported in a May 20 blog posting that Hannah chose Tyler Cameron, a 26-year-old model and general contractor from Jupiter, FL, during her Final Rose Ceremony at the end of Season 15.
But on June 18, Carbone corrected his reporting and announced a different bachelor had actually won Hannah's final rose.
According to Carbone's June 18 posting, Tyler actually finished The Bachelorette in second place and the real winner of Hannah's heart was Jed!
Not only did Jed accept Hannah's final rose, but the 25-year-old singer and songwriter from Nashville, TN, also reportedly proposed marriage to her -- and Hannah said yes!
"Basically every season I post the spoiler, at some point during the next few months someone will tell me the spoiler is wrong and they're hearing different. Sometimes they're right, sometimes my initial spoiler is right. This year has been no different. [Three] weeks ago I started hearing that Hannah was with [Jed Wyatt] and not [Tyler Cameron]," Carbone wrote last month.
"Started looking into it, and [on June 4]... I got the most interesting tip about a possible Hannah and Jed engagement. So I've spent the better part of the last two weeks doing all I can to figure out it's legitimacy. And now I finally feel comfortable and can report: Hannah chose Jed at the end and they are engaged."
Carbone, however, wasn't able to provide any evidence on why he was so certain Jed was Hannah's winning bachelor.
"Frankly, there's nothing I can say to convince you it is Jed, so I'm not gonna try," Carbone admitted at the time.
"Sorry the initial Tyler info was wrong. Just wasn't as solid as I thought it was. But the info about Jed from 3 weeks ago is as solid as I can get and I just have to leave it at that. I'm well aware people will still hold out hope it's Tyler and you have every right to... I'm confident in this and I'll leave it at that."
Reality Steve also suggested Jed Wyatt even shadier than viewers already knew
But when he revealed Jed was actually the winner, Carbone also suggested Jed -- who had admitted to Hannah on the show that he had only decided to come on The Bachelorette to promote his music career -- was even shadier than viewers already knew.
Carbone claimed in his June 18 blog posting he had been hearing negative, unflattering rumors about Jed.
However, a few hours after Carbone made his vague allegations about Jed, some details suddenly came out publicly and on the record.
Haley Stevens, a 26-year-old fellow Nashville-based musician, came forward and claimed she had been Jed's girlfriend when he left to go on The Bachelorette and Jed left for the show planning to continue their relationship after he returned home.
Haley said she and Jed had been dating for about four months when Jed left to film The Bachelorette.
And according to Haley, the couple had even taken a romantic trip to the Bahamas -- where they said "I love you" to each other for the first time -- in February 2019 after Jed learned he would be on The Bachelorette's 2019 season.
"We spent the night together the night before he headed to L.A.," Haley recalled to People. "He told me [the show] was just an obstacle and we'd be stronger on the other side because of it."
Haley also claimed Jed called her after his plane landed in Los Angeles to begin filming and said Jed had repeatedly promised he was just going on The Bachelorette to get publicity for his music career.
"He said, 'I love you, and I'll call you when I get back,'" said Haley, who claimed she met Jed in October 2018.
According to Haley, Jed's intentions for dating Hannah were far worse than just seeking fame and promotion for his career, because his initial plan was to allegedly use Hannah when his heart belonged to another woman the whole time.
Haley insisted Jed was hoping to woo Hannah and string her along far into The Bachelorette process, revealing, "He said he only wanted to be Top 5 [bachelors]... to be a major player so that it would be beneficial [to his career]."
Haley explained to People, "I was following along on spoiler accounts, trying to figure out when my boyfriend was going to come home. I bought a homecoming outfit that I was going to wear to maybe pick him up at the airport."
When the season began airing, Haley admitted she was "terrified" Jed would fall in love with Hannah.
"In the beginning I felt bad [watching the show] because I thought he loved me and was faking dating her. But then I thought, my boyfriend could be engaged to someone else," Haley said.
Haley told People Jed didn't call her and "ghosted" her when he returned home from filming The Bachelorette, leaving her totally "baffled" and heartbroken.
After a chance meeting at a music venue in early June in which Jed allegedly acted indifferent towards her, she determined she was done with him forever.
"He loved me, but he didn't have enough respect for me to have that tough conversation," Haley told the magazine.
Hannah decided to stay with Jed but end their engagement after Haley came forward
Haley continued to do additional interviews with other media outlets after her interview with People, and her disclosures seemed to cause Hannah to begin having second thoughts about Jed -- as, according to Carbone, Hannah then called off her engagement to Jed in late June!
On June 27, the spoiler blogger took to Twitter and revealed Hannah was no longer engaged to Jed -- but, in a strange twist, she was still staying "together" with him as a couple.
"Since this is big news and some don't like being spoiled on Twitter even if there's a warning at the beginning of the tweet, I will post it in the thread. So if you don't want to be spoiled, do not continue to read this thread..." Carbone began.
"I can confirm that Hannah broke off her engagement to Jed earlier this week. They are still 'together,' but the engagement is off. This isn't a 'don't ever talk to me again' from what I'm being told, but it's also not all rainbows and daffodils either."
Carbone predicted, however, Hannah and Jed's relationship wasn't going to last long because it was probably hanging by a thread.
"Knowing that for the next month, so many people will be tweeting at Hannah to get rid of Jed, they're so happy she ended the engagement, go back to Tyler, etc. my guess is this relationship will be over sooner rather than later," Carbone tweeted.
"To end an engagement means Hannah has been bothered enough by what's come out. I don't see how Jed gets back in her good graces after this. Nor should he. This is something she will be, and should be, applauded for, & I just don't see them working thru this."
"This is a logical thing for Hannah to do. She had to. Just to re-evaluate everything going on bc she was essentially lied to and is now finding out stuff about her fiance I'm guessing she had no clue about. Will find out more & have it for you next week."
Hannah would also probably be viewed as a hypocrite had she not called off her engagement to Jed considering she had made a huge scene when Scott Anderson, one of her Night 1 bachelors, was accused of having a girlfriend back home during the initial cocktail party.
Although Scott said he had dumped his girlfriend before filming began because he couldn't envision a future with her, Hannah was still furious about the timeline and questioned Scott's character and cut him immediately.
And in Jed's case, he allegedly never dumped Haley before going on The Bachelorette, but even planned to reunite with her afterwards!
Now Hannah has decided to dump Jed completely!
A few days after his June 27 tweets, Carbone suddenly reported that Hannah subsequently decided to dump Jed entirely!
"Hannah and Jed are done completely. She's broken off the relationship altogether. She's not trying or hoping for it to work out. They are done," Carbone wrote in a July 2 blog posting.
Carbone claimed Hannah and Jed's breakup was filmed in Los Angeles on-camera and will air during the season's The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose special, which he believes will now air over the course of two nights on ABC.
"I'm sure this is good news to many of you since as soon as Haley's story broke, many of you were excited to hear that she ended the engagement when I reported it, but also wanted her to not even try and give this a chance. And she did the right thing," Carbone continued.
"Lets be honest, I don't think she had much of a choice here. She would've been crucified for keeping him around after taking such a firm stance this season on women empowerment. So good on her. She did the right thing and I don't think a single one of us is upset it's over with Jed. It should be."
What allegedly led up to Hannah's decision to completely dump Jed?
A lot reportedly transpired after Hannah and Jed got engaged in Greece.
According to Carbone, Jed told Hannah about his prior relationship with Haley shortly after proposing marriage to her, so Haley's recent public interviews were not the first time Hannah had heard about her.
Carbone said he's pretty sure Jed told Hannah about Haley while they were still in Greece in the days following the filming of the Final Rose Ceremony, but exactly what Jed admitted about the relationship remains unclear.
"However, up until last week, Hannah and Jed were still engaged. So whatever Jed told her, like I said to Haley and told all of you, was clearly not the full story," Carbone alleged on July 2.
"I'm sure he just gave her some generic, 'Hey, there's this girl I was dating before the show... we broke up... she doesn't mean anything anymore... don't worry about it' BS that we've pretty much come to expect with him. In fact one specific detail I did hear is that Jed told Hannah they were broken up."
Carbone's claims that Jed told Hannah some limited information about Haley before they returned home from filming would also explain another allegation Haley made in a podcast interview she did with Carbone last week -- that Hannah's brother suddenly began following Haley on Instagram on May 13, a few days after the final Rose Ceremony took place.
However, whatever limited info Jed told Hannah shortly they got engaged obviously wasn't enough for Hannah to call-off the engagement at that time.
"Then Haley's story comes out with the receipts and basically a week later she ends it? Yeah, I'd say Haley did the right thing by coming forward and providing receipts and Hannah did the right thing by ending it," Carbone wrote in his latest blog posting.
"And I'm sorry Jed, whatever you wanted to label your relationship with Haley, someone that you text 'I love you. Don't forget that' as you're about to board the plane heading to LA to film the show is something much more than someone you broke up with, or someone you may claim was a platonic relationship. Please."
During his podcast interview with Haley, Carbone had also told Haley that after she came forward, another woman had also contacted him and showed him numerous texts proving Jed had cheated on Haley and had sex with another woman shortly before their trip to the Bahamas.
Carbone believes Haley's story was enough for Hannah to end her relationship for good because Jed had "clearly lied about his relationship with Haley" and so trust between himself and Hannah had been broken.
"Now this man was her fiance. How is she supposed to believe anything he tells her from that point forward? He could've begged and pleaded for another chance, and telling her he'd change, and apologized for not being 100 percent honest about his relationship with Haley, but as a woman, seeing what Haley put out there, there's NO WAY Hannah would've ever been able to forgive that type of betrayal," Carbone wrote.
"Seeing what he's texting a woman hours before arriving in LA? I don't care what happened during filming and how hard he claims to have fallen for her, how could she trust him enough after he basically started off their engagement with one big lie? She couldn't, and I'm assuming that's why the relationship is over. As it should be."
