If there’s one thing Bachelor Nation can rely on, it’s spoilers about where Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons are heading before they even premiere. And a majority of that *chef’s kiss* 🍵 is c/o gossip king Reality Steve, who yet again came through this past April and blessed us with deets about Charity Lawson’s batch of contestants—including the final four dudes competing for her heart. 👀
This means it’s probably a good time for me to do this:
WARNING! SPOILERS lie ahead in 3...2...1....
It turns out the final four of Charity’s 29 Bachelorette suitors are:
JFYI, Steve actually thought another contestant named Tanner Cortad was also in the final four. But this was because of confusion over who made it to hometowns week (both Tanner and Joey are from Pennsylvania). Steve now maintains that Tanner was actually eliminated before hometowns. Additionally, his post also sheds light into when filming for each contestant’s hometown episode takes place: Joey’s on April 11, Xavier’s on April 13, Aaron’s on April 15, and Dotun’s on April 17.
And Reality Steve isn’t the only one dishing on what goes on during this upcoming Bachelorette season. Charity herself opened up about her first night of filming back in March, admitting that “it was a good one” to Entertainment Tonight. “I’m a little giddy. Definitely smitten. I have a good batch of boys...I was laughing the whole night,” she added.
The newest Bachelorette told the outlet she’s grateful for the opportunity, not only because she’s looking forward to finding love but also because she’s quite literally making history as the fourth Black Bachelorette. “When I was told that I was going to be the next Bachelorette, that was one of the first things that I immediately thought of,” she began. “To step into this role as the fourth woman of color and the second monoracial African American Bachelorette, it’s huge...I recognize that, although it is my journey, it’s so much bigger than me, because I’m carrying along a whole community of people who are looking up [to me] and [I’m] representing that as well. [I’m] definitely not taking it for granted. I’m really excited and I’m very fortunate to be the fourth.”
And that’s pretty much all we know for now about Charity’s finalists! Just keep in mind that spoilers aren’t always right. (Although in the case of Reality Steve, they usually are ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)....)
