Bachelor spoilers are coming fast and furious as we head in to Hometown Dates during Week 8. If you don’t want any secrets revealed or any names named (like The Bachelor 2016 winner, for example), it may be best to abort now. You can click here for a mostly spoiler-free recap of last week’s episode here instead.
However, if Bachelor spoilers 2016 are what you’re looking for, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Who does Ben Higgins pick on The Bachelor finale? Who gets sent home during the Feb. 22 Hometown Dates episode? When does the finale air? It’s all here below.
First, let’s get some logistics out of the way. Though production schedules sometimes include unexpected back-to-back episodes or other wildcards that differ from previous seasons, Reality Steve’s Bachelor spoilers for Season 20 predict The Bachelor 2016 finale will air March 14 – so mark your calendars.
In recent weeks, Bachelor Ben said so long to Jubilee, Olivia and Becca. But who will be eliminated on the Feb. 22 episode? Reality Steve says fans should prepare to say goodbye to 25-year-old single mom and esthetician Amanda Stanton. Apparently, something about visiting Amanda’s hometown and meeting Amanda’s kids made Ben realize that instant fatherhood wasn’t the path for him.
Reality Steve gets all the credit for this information. His website dished the dirt weeks ago as part of his episode-by-episode predictions: “I can confirm that Amanda Stanton was eliminated at the [Week 8] rose ceremony, meaning Caila Quinn, Lauren Bushnell, and JoJo Fletcher are your final 3.”
One of those final three is feeling pretty relaxed this week, if her social media posts are anything to go by. On Feb. 21 and 22, front-runner Lauren Bushnell was tweeting photos of palm trees and the ocean; were these from her last few days of filming? The blond beauty hit Mexico last month for some post-filming fun in the sun, but these photos appear to have been taken in Hawaii. As far as we know, Hawaii wasn’t on the location list for The Bachelor Season 20, so maybe she’s just enjoying some flight attendant perks as she waits out these last few episodes along with the rest of us.
Of course, this still leaves us with the most burning question: who does Ben Higgins pick on The Bachelor finale next month? Well, this is one of those Bachelor spoilers that shouldn’t come as a huge surprise: pretty, blond flight attendant Lauren Bushnell, 25, is indeed predicted to be our Bachelor 2016 winner.
As far as who to expect to see cut next week, Steve says it’s most likely JoJo. “I expect JoJo to be eliminated next. Nothing has changed from everything I’ve heard.” And just how confident is Reality Steve about his Bachelor spoilers 2016? Pretty darn confident. “He’s going to pick Lauren, and it’s been Lauren since about halfway through filming. Crazier things have happened, but, it would be a shocker if he didn’t pick her.” (To be fair, Reality Steve has been wrong in the past, though his track record is pretty clean overall.)
Tune in to ABC Monday night (Feb. 22) to see if Amanda is indeed the unlucky bachelorette who gets eliminated this week, and check back with us later for a full Week 8 recap and more Bachelor spoilers!
