Arie’s Season Of The “Bachelor” Just Had The Messiest Finale Possible And People Think The Show Crossed A Line


In the special, Luyendyk said he couldn’t stop thinking about Burnham, so he decided to call off the engagement.

Luyendyk told Kufrin that he wanted to see if “there was that possibility” that Burnham would get back together with him, and that he had to “follow his heart.”

“Are you fucking kidding me?” Kufrin responded.

Luyendyk added that he tried to get over Burnham, but the heartbreak he felt from their breakup lingered.

“I don’t think its fair to be half in with you,” he told her, adding he wanted to “take the risk” to try to be with Burnham.

Reality Steve, aka Steve Carbone, has correctly spoiled every season since Mesnick’s except for one, Desiree Hartstock’s turn on The Bachelorette in 2013.

In a Jan. 23 blog post titled “What’s Going On,” Carbone revealed all the messy details that had gone down since the show stopped filming.

He also wrote that Lauren and Arie are now together, although the show has yet to confirm that.

“Arie ended his engagement with Becca a little over a week ago and is now dating Lauren. That’s why he was in Virginia last week at Lauren’s parents house,” he wrote.

Carbone told BuzzFeed News that it appeared ABC had been dropping more hints about the finale than in previous seasons, a fact he attributed to the leaks about the breakup.

“It was almost impossible to hide from it,” he said. “Promoting it makes sense on a business end. I think because of what happens is the reason they’re promoting this crazy ending. On a regular season, where there’s just an engagement at the end, they wouldn’t do this.”
