The Bachelor season 28 teaser

The Bachelor is currently in the midst of its 28th season, with returning Bachelorette fan-favourite Joey Graziadei on his journey for a second chance at love.

The 28-year-old franchise alum, who came in second during season 20 of The Bachelorette last August, was greeted by 32 women all competing for his heart during the 22 January premiere.

That number has since dwindled. And yet, with a few weeks left until the season finale, popular blogger Reality Steve thinks he already knows who the final woman will be, and according to Business Insider, he’s seldom wrong.

In a blog article published in November, Reality Steve included a string of tweets he had originally posted, which showed footage and pictures of Joey filming the series in October.

Among the biggest revelations to come from Reality Steve’s spoilers is Joey’s supposed engagement to Daisy, the early fan-favourite from Minnesota.

During the premiere, Joey and Daisy appeared to hit it off quite well as they spoke one-on-one and even shared a first kiss.

Footage and photos posted to X by Reality Steve showed the two hand-in-hand and kissing as they filmed the Hometown Visit episode at Daisy’s home in Minnesota.

While Reality Steve admits that he has no proof he can share, he adds: “Just like every season, people will question, people will doubt, and contestants will post stuff on social media to throw fans off. Happens every season. This one will be no different.

“But come finale night, this is what you’ll see. Joey and Daisy got engaged in Tulum, Mexico at the end of the season,” he claimed at the time.

“Obviously the finale won’t air until mid-March so who knows what can happen in the next four months.”

In a major update published on Tuesday (27 February), Reality Steve conceded that he was initially wrong in thinking Daisy was the winner.

“Joey is engaged to Kelsey A and has been since filming ended,” he wrote, adding: “I have absolutely no problem eating crow and telling the [redditor] who goes by ‘sandbetweenhertoes’, that she absolutely nailed the video of Kelsey in the backyard of a Happy Couple house 2 weekends ago.

“When those pics were sent to me, I was about 98 per cent sure the spoiler was wrong,” he said.

The photos he’s referring to – posted to Reddit by the user sandbetweenhertoes – include screenshots from recent TikTok videos uploaded by both Joey and Kelsey A that show the two were at the same Airbnb used as a Happy Couple house in previous seasons.

New episodes of The Bachelor air Mondays on ABC at 5pm PT/8pm ET.
