[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, who finished as her runner-up, and whether Hannah is currently engaged or in a relationship with her final winner pick].
What was the original The Bachelorette Season 15 finale spoiler about who Hannah picked?
Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone 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 conclusion of her journey to find The One.
According to that May 20 blog posting, Hannah and Tyler also got engaged at the end of her The Bachelorette season.
"You hear so much every season after filming ends, and you gotta weed through a lot of hearsay, speculation, theories, etc to get to the meat and potatoes of what happened. I'm confident in what I've been told enough to report today," Carbone wrote at the time.
"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 earlier this 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."
Fans were probably shocked to hear this news because they had been believing for weeks Tyler was the man who had captured Hannah's heart.
"Frankly, there's nothing I can say to convince you it is Jed, so I'm not gonna try," Carbone said, adding that he couldn't explain how he now knows Jed won or why he believes Tyler didn't win after all.
"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."
It wasn't the first time Reality Steve changed his winner spoiler for a season
The longtime The Bachelor spoiler blogger recently pointed out that every time he has changed his final pick spoilers in previous seasons, he turned out to be correct.
"I wouldn't change the biggest spoiler of the season unless I had something pretty solid to go off of. I believe I do," Carbone insisted.
"If I went into detail what I've dealt with the past 3 weeks and what I've heard, your head would spin. Mine did... When I looked back at my initial notes on [Hannah's season], the one thing that put me over the top to post it was Tyler, I thought it was solid, but it wasn't solid enough."
Carbone firmly believed the information he had received about Jed receiving Hannah's final rose and proposing marriage to her was the "most trustworthy" -- although he refused to share the alleged evidence.
Carbone said earlier this month fans will hear all different stories and endings for Hannah's season in subsequent weeks, but he was certain Jed was her guy.
"It's Jed, they're engaged, and that won't change from me the rest of the season," Carbone wrote in his blog. "There hasn't been anything more concrete on Hannah and Jed than what I received a few weeks ago."
Reality Steve also suggested Jed Wyatt even shadier than viewers already knew
But in addition to changing his spoiler about who Hannah picked as her winner, Carbone's new June 18 blog posting also suggested he was hearing negative, unflattering rumors about Jed.
Carbone, however, said he couldn't speak on any allegations at the time because his sources declined to come forward publicly and put their names on the claims.
However, hours after Carbone threw out the idea Jed was shady in character or his intentions with Hannah, details of the rumors 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.
Earlier this season, The Bachelorette showed Jed admitting to Hannah that he had only gone on The Bachelorette because he wanted to promote his music. (However, he insisted he was genuinely falling for her and intended to continue on the show just for her).
But according to Haley, Jed's intentions for dating Hannah were far worse than just seeking fame, 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 once Jed returned home to Nashville after taping, he never called her and he "ghosted" her, 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.
"He loved me, but he didn't have enough respect for me to have that tough conversation," Haley told the magazine.
So is Hannah still with Jed after learning he allegedly had a girlfriend back home?
Haley has continued to do additional interviews with other media outlets since her interview with People, and her disclosures appear to have caused Hannah to have a change of heart about Jed -- as, according to Carbone, Hannah called off her engagement to Jed earlier this week!
On June 27, the spoiler blogger took to Twitter to reveal Hannah is no longer engaged to Jed -- but, in a strange twist of events, they are still "together" 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 won't last long as it's currently hanging by a threat.
"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."
It's unclear what Hannah's next move would be if she decides to end her relationship with Jed for good.
"I know you will all ask me about Tyler, and will she get back with him, and are they together, have they talked, etc. I don't know. Who knows if Tyler would even want that. Maybe he'd rather be the 'Bachelor?' I'm not gonna answer for him," Carbone wrote on Twitter.
"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 have been deemed a hypocrite to many viewers if she stayed engaged to Jed as she made a huge scene when allegations that Scott Anderson, one of her bachelors, came had come onThe Bachelorette despite having a girlfriend back home had surfaced on the season's 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.
Hannah therefore dumped Scott immediately. But in Jed's case, he allegedly never dumped Haley before going on The Bachelorette, and even planned to reunite with her afterwards!
Is the rest of Reality Steve's prior spoiler info still correct?
Carbone previously reported that Peter Weber finished in third place and Luke Parker placed fourth. He apparently still stands by those spoilers today.
