If we’ve learned anything over the past 15 years, it’s that there’s nothing more sacred than the love forged between a man and a woman…on a reality show.
But now, TMZ is tainting America’s opportunity to witness the wholesome progression of its next TV union…by spoiling the upcoming season of “The Bachelorette”.
They posted a photo of Becca Kufrin kissing a “mystery man” in the Maldives, where the show filmed the proposal for the last episode. And naturally, it wasn’t long before the Internet compared the photos with the contestants and identified the winner.
(SPOILER ALERT: You can find TMZ’s photos of the kiss, here. And you can see the profile of the alleged winner, here. TMZ allegedly got the photo from a woman who happened upon the shoot while on her honeymoon.)
Becca has already revealed that she is engaged.
But now, she’s also saying that she fell in love with two men.
Which is amusing, because she was jilted by Arie Luyendyk Jr. during the last season of “The Bachelor” after he proposed to her, and then pulled a switcheroo to pursue Lauren, the runner-up.
She said, “I did develop really strong feelings for a couple of them and I did fall for two guys at the end, yes. You’ll have to wait and see.” The show premieres on Monday. (Here’s a clip of her talking about it.)
And speaking of “The Bachelorette”, Meredith Phillips from Season 2 says a female masseuse drugged and sexually assaulted her during production of the show in late 2003.
She says, “The last thing I remember was she got naked and she was in the tub with me, and rubbing my back and rubbing areas probably she shouldn’t have. And then I was put in bed. I woke up naked. Don’t remember much.”
She didn’t say anything at the time because she “wanted to protect the franchise.” The show hasn’t commented.
