'Bachelor' Producers Sue Over Spoilers Because They’re Ruining Everything!

TV Addict 12

Sean Lowe 'The Bachelor'Season 17 of The Bachelor doesn't kick off until Monday, January 7, but apparently there are already some MAJOR problems. Things aren't all roses for Bachelor producers after word got out on WHO Sean Lowe chooses at the end of the upcoming season. Yeah, they're furious with Stephen Carbone, owner of the spoiler site Reality Steve, and are suing him (for the second time) for "soliciting details from cast and crew members who were contractually obligated to keep quiet." Wow. This is no joke.

I get it. It's annoying to put all this effort and money and time into a show when the world can just read up on the end result before the thing even airs. I'm not so sure they'll win their case against Stephen, but I'm on their side here. I'm sick and tired of hearing so many big spoilers SO far in advance.

It's just always been something that bothers me, personally. I know there are those people out there that appreciate and feel like they're getting the inside information when they get the spoilers. Seriously though, what's the point of tuning in every week when you know how it's ending? For me, it just feels pointless.

The Bachelor is a long series of episodes full of twists and turns, dates, suspenseful rose ceremonies, and nights in the Fantasy Suite. As a fan, you want to follow along with the magic of what falling in love is like (or "love" on reality TV, anyway). I'm convinced that knowing who is winning the entire shebang and, worse -- before it even starts -- just ruins the magic.

A huge part of me hopes Reality Steve is wrong. I guess, for now, we'll just have to wait with bated breath to find out.

Do you hate or love spoilers? Do you hope the ones about this season's big winner are true?

Yes i love reality Steve and read up on him for the beginning of each and every show and yes.....he'd been right everytime!!!

i'm wondering why they're suing this reality steve guy when it's obviously their own staff that can't keep their jaws from flapping. reality steve didn't sign a confidentiality clause, their employees did. i can see them subpoenaing him to find out who gave him the info and sue THAT person for breach of contract... but not the guy who puts out the news... (unless he uses some immoral and/or dubious tactics, that's a different story).

I agree with dirtiekittie !!!

What I dislike is when people come on THIS site and ruin it for everyone else by telling everyone in the comments section what Reality Steve is saying.
