“Brad is engaged to Emily,” Steve wrote. “It’s been a crazy last 96 hours to say the least, but yes, it is true. Trust me, for the guy that has sat here for the last three months pounding on his chest and screaming from the top of the Empire State Building like King Kong that ‘Brad is engaged to Chantal,’ the last thing I wanna do is tell you I was wrong the whole time. Well, I was. I apologize. We’ll get to the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ in a little bit as I give you a inside look into my last week. If there are still those that doubt it’s Emily and thinking well maybe someone is trying to fool me or throw me off, just think about this. Do you think after being wrong about Ali and Roberto’s ending, and having said it’s Chantal for the last three months, I would come out and admit to this different ending if it was just some hunch that I had? I’m more than 100% (if that’s possible), absolutely, positively, without a doubt telling you Brad is engaged to Emily and he has been since South Africa. You will see this on March 14th. I’m just glad I was able to get it to you with two weeks to spare, because in the end, this site is about two things in my opinion: Humorous, snarky, sarcastic recaps, and telling you what’s going to happen before you actually see it happen. Well, now you know.”
Steve apologizes to a slew of people in the column, from the readers to people he’s emailed, to Brad and Chantal, to fans of Chantal.
