There was a crasher at this season’s “Bachelorette: Men Tell All” taping, and spoiler king Reality Steve Carbone has revealed who she was and what she was doing there. In a July 22 post on RealitySteve.com, the longtime “Bachelor” blogger wrote that it was no coincidence that rejected contestant Chris Soules had a secret admirer in the audience and that she ended up on the stage after interrupting his Q&A with host Chris Harrison.
Dishing that the female fan was most certainly planted by producers, the spoiler king wrote, “Of course it was set up. Now, Chris Harrison might not have known it was going to happen (Chris Soules definitely didn’t know), but it’s not like this woman wasn’t coached beforehand on when to raise her hand and when to start speaking.”
The blogger—who has nailed every aspect of the current season of the ABC dating show thus far—also revealed that the mystery woman’s name is Khatera “Kat” Safi and she lives in Guelph, Ontario. Carbone also noted that her LinkedIn page lists her as the Marketing Coordinator at the Ministry of Agriculture.
While the gutsy audience member was bold enough to ask Soules for date and give him her phone number, the hunky farmer told TV Guide he was “totally caught off guard” by the incident and was mum on whether he’s actually call her or not.
The “Men Tell All” taping ended with a preview of next week’s “Bachelorette” finale as well as a clip of Harrison handing this season's star Andi Dorfman a letter from one of her two final men (that’d be either Nick Viall or Josh Murray) and dramatically telling her, “I think you should read it.”
But before you get worked up over the significance of the letter, Reality Steve issued a reminder that a similar thing happened on Sean Lowe’s season of the show, and the “letter” simply turned out to be a love note from final pick Catherine Giudici.
“I don’t know what the letter says or who wrote it,” Reality Steve wrote. “Nor do I know when the letter was written. Whatever the case, the point I’m trying to make is, it has zero effect on the outcome of the season… I just know it has no bearing on the outcome I’ve been telling you about all season. So no need to read into it at all. Just more manufactured drama to get people to think that it’s something bigger than it is since it doesn’t change the outcome.”
The season finale of “The Bachelorette” airs on Monday, July 27 at 8:00 p.m. on ABC.
