We have reached the overnight dates in filming ‘The Bachelorette’ season 8 with Emily Maynard, so it’s time to update all you Bachelorette spoiler lovers who don’t want to wait weeks to find out what happened. In this post you can also find out lots of Bachelorette premiere spoilers, like who got the First Impression Rose from Emily. But I can also tell she who she eliminated last Friday night to leave her with just her top 3 to choose from (unless of course, there’s a surprise in store for us and Emily does something unexpected…)
Chris Bukowski was eliminated at the rose ceremony last Friday night in LA, according to Reality Steve, which leaves her last three guys as Jef Holm, Sean Lowe and Arie Luyendyk Jr.
They all get overnight dates but so far, unfortunately, neither Steve nor I have been able to find out the destinations.
Madrid has been mooted as the destination for the Final Rose ceremony but that is a very, very tentative suggestion at this stage.
But I do know beyond all reasonable doubt that Jef, Sean, and Arie are Emily’s final three.
We have some Bachelorette premiere spoilers, too, courtesy of ABC’s official press release. We know that Tony makes like Prince Charming and presents her with a glass slipper. Jef skateboards in. Party MC Stevie dances for Emily. Travis offers her a gift with a special meaning for Emily and her daughter. (Can’t wait to find out what that is!) And Kalon lands in his private helicopter.
Once inside the Bachelorette mansion, Brent, a single father of six, shows off his family photos. How did he get time to be on this show!) Arie is scared to tell Emily he’s a race car driver in case it reminds her of her late fiancé, Ricky Hendrick. And Doug, another single dad, shares a tender moment with Emily, bringing with him a touching letter from his 11-year-old son.
The letter obviously worked because apparently it’s Doug who gets the First Impression Rose. He went on to get his first one-on-one date inBermuda, but obviously didn’t make it into Emily’s final 4.
Oh and get this: Nate Bakke’s name isn’t Nate Bakke. It’s Jeff Maly. Jeffrey Colin Maly to be exact. Nate Bakke is the guy’s stage name, even though this is basically the first “acting” gig he’s ever landed. Growing up he was known as Jeff Maly, and all close friends know him as that, according to Reality Steve.
I can’t wait to see ‘The Bachelorette’ premiere next week. I really want to know what’s in that letter from Doug’s son!
