Our approach to The Bachelorette is kinda like the way a cynic reads a book: we like to know what’s going to happen in the end, but we also love-love-love watching the journey. After all, even though Reality Steve told us that Sean would choose Catherine in the end on The Bachelor Season 17, we couldn’t have predicted how in love we’d fall with Desiree Hartsock, or the impact that Tierra LiCausi would have on our daily eyebrow care.

But according to RS, Season 9 of The Bachelorette is going to be a dead giveaway for everyone. “From what I'm hearing, Desiree's choice in the end will not surprise anyone,” the Spoiler King tweeted on April 17. “She's apparently known from early on who she liked the most.”

Hmm. Well, we’d say that with a little careful editing — which Bachelorette producers use in spades — the show can still be totally enjoyable. And in times like this, we always (always) turn to former rose-doler Ali Fedotowsky.

“I am one of those Bachelor/Bachelorettes that knew my top two the very first night,” Ali said back in her February 5 Bachelor blog. “I have to say that it is extremely difficult to go through the process and date a bunch of other people when you know who you are most interested in.”

Although her chemistry with eventual winner Roberto Martinez was obvious from the start, so it was too with Frank and Chris, among other dudes. And if you look at Sean’s Bachelor season, we don’t know how he felt about Catherine in the beginning — mostly because she was largely edited out of the show footage that aired.

So, will we know who Des picks? It’s possible. One of the rumored final dudes also happens to get her first 1-on-1 date. Check back soon to find out what happens.
