Everything that's come out about Hannah Brown's Bachelorette season

As fans of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette know, host Chris Harrison promises that every season of the show will be bigger, better, and more dramatic than any season that came before it. Of course, Hannah Brown's season was no exception to this rule. "There is more drama this season than we've ever had on any show, The Bachelor or The Bachelorette," Harrison revealed to The Hollywood Reporter ahead of the May 2019 season premiere. He continued, "These guys were a lot for [Hannah] to handle, but she held her own. It was rocky, and it's been a lot for her."

And it seems like Harrison just might be telling the truth. Brown's season has certainly seen its fair share of standard Bachelorette water cooler fodder, but, according to reports, the real drama surrounding Season 15 is happening offscreen. If you're dying to discover what's come out about Brown's season of The Bachelorette, we've got you covered. However, you should know that a minefield of major spoilers lies ahead. 

Reality Steve got this Bachelorette season wrong

Blogger Reality Steve, whose real name is Steve Carbone, has been spoiling The Bachelor and Bachelorette for years, ever since he received a tip that Bachelor Jason Mesnick had dumped Melissa Rycroft and asked his runner-up, Molly Malaney, for a second chance. Since publishing that information, Carbone has been considered an authority on all things Bachelor-related — much to the chagrin of ABC, of course. 

On May 20, 2019, Carbone posted episode-by-episode spoilers for Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette, claiming that the Alabama native had accepted a proposal from Tyler Cameron during the final rose ceremony in Greece. Carbone even doubled down on his spoiler and addressed the skeptics, writing, "What happened in Greece on May 10th cannot be changed."

Well, apparently, it can. On June 18, 2019, Carbone took to his blog with a major Bachelorette spoiler — and by "major," we mean majorly disappointing news for Tyler and Hannah fans. "[Three] weeks ago, I started hearing that Hannah was with Jed and not Tyler," Carbone wrote. He went on, "I finally feel comfortable and can report: Hannah chose Jed at the end and they are engaged."

Jed Wyatt came on The Bachelorette to promote his career

The news that Hannah Brown allegedly chose Jed Wyatt over Tyler Cameron didn't sit well with the majority of Bachelor Nation. After all, fans were looking forward to the inevitable HGTV show that would come from the interior designer's marriage to the general contractor and fill the Fixer Upper-shaped hole in our hearts. But even more concerning was the suspicion that Wyatt was much more interested in furthering his career as a singer-songwriter than he was in furthering his relationship with Brown.

Wyatt opened up to Brown about his musical aspirations during their very first one-on-one date, even admitting that he initially signed on for the show because he saw it as an opportunity for exposure. While he assured Brown his intentions had shifted upon getting to know her, Bachelorette fans couldn't help but notice that Wyatt's guitar continually got more screen time than some actual contestants. Even former Bachelor Nick Viall expressed doubts about Wyatt's endgame, telling Entertainment Tonight, "It's really hard to literally believe anything he's saying, and it doesn't help that [in] every damn scene, he's playing a guitar."

The Bachelorette's Hannah Brown wasn't the only woman in Jed Wyatt's life

Hours after Reality Steve, or Steve Carbone, revealed that Hannah Brown and Jed Wyatt were allegedly engaged, People published an exclusive tell-all interview with Haley Stevens — a budding Nashville musician who claimed she and Wyatt were in a serious relationship throughout his time on the show. "He told me [early on] that he had applied," Stevens revealed to People. "He said, 'It's probably not going to happen, but it's a huge opportunity. I'm only doing this for my music.' He only did it for his career."

Stevens also alleged that Wyatt said he only wanted to "make top five," and promised her that he wouldn't actually fall for Brown. "He told me [the show] was just an obstacle and we'd be stronger on the other side because of it," Stevens told the publication.

As allegedly proven by text messages Stevens provided to Us Weekly, she and Wyatt were reportedly in contact until the day the Bachelorette contestant had to hand over his phone to producers. "I love you! Don't forget that," a text from Wyatt reads, dated March 12, 2019. He added, "I'll call you in the plane!"

Could Jed Wyatt and Hannah Brown be The Bachelorette's next Arie and Becca?

In March 2018, Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. made major headlines for dumping fiancée Becca Kufrin and returning to his runner-up, Lauren Burnham, to ask for a second chance. While the switch-a-roo wasn't a first for the Bachelor franchise, the show's decision to film every moment of Luyendyk Jr.'s brutal breakup with the blindsided Kufrin garnered intense backlash from fans. After all, Kufrin seemingly did nothing to deserve having her broken engagement play out on national television, and watching her sob while her fiancé confessed his feelings for another woman felt like a punch in the gut.

According to Steve Carbone, Bachelorette fans have another televised breakup coming their way — though this one is sure to feel like a punch in the gut for completely different reasons. "Hannah and Jed are done completely. She's broken off the relationship altogether," Carbone wrote in a July 2019 blog post. "And I can also report, their breakup was filmed in LA on camera and we will see that during part two of the [After the Final Rose special] airing on July 30th."

Jed Wyatt's response to The Bachelorette speculation

On July 8, 2019, Jed Wyatt finally broke his silence about the allegations surrounding his relationship with Haley Stevens. However, if you were expecting the aspiring musician to address the rumors head on, his response was nothing more than a teaser for what's to come — as well as a plea for empathy.

"Several of you have reached out with messages and questions. Please know I'm not able to answer right now, but as soon as I'm able to, I will," the Bachelorette contestant posted to Instagram, along with a photo of himself standing with his parents and sister. "Until then, I ask that you please understand how much the actions being taken towards myself, my family, the men on the show, and above all, Hannah, are affecting all of our mental and physical health."

Claiming that his family members had been the recipients of harassing phone calls, letters, and public verbal attacks, Wyatt concluded his post by writing, "I want to thank all of you who have reached out or reserved judgement until I am able to speak openly, and I can only ask for your patience and kindness until then."

The Bachelorette's Hannah Brown isn't here to be shamed

Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette has been newsworthy for reasons other than Jed Wyatt's alleged girlfriend. While sex on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette has long been a touchy subject for many of the show's leads, Brown has refused to shy away from the topic during her run as Bachelorette — even when faced with backlash from frontrunner contestant Luke Parker. As host Chris Harrison told Entertainment Tonight, "[Hannah's] very vulnerable and emotional, but don't you dare cross her and question her decisions, because this is her life and you've got to respect that."

The former beauty queen proved Harrison's point with a June 2019 Instagram post, in which she called out haters and online trolls for using religion as justification to shame her decisions as Bachelorette — most notably, her sex positive attitude.

"I refuse to feel shame. I refuse to believe the lies and evil that flood my comments," Brown wrote. She added, "I'm hot mess on a stick, [and] I blew it a few times...but I refuse to believe I give Christians a bad name. I'm an imperfect human. Who is yes, also a Christian."

Could The Bachelorette feature a Hannah Brown and Tyler Cameron reunion?

"Tannah" fans were left brokenhearted when Steve Carbone reported that Hannah Brown had allegedly chosen Jed Wyatt over Tyler Cameron during the Bachelorette finale — but a bit of hope was restored when the blogger revealed that Brown had reportedly not only called off her engagement with Wyatt but had also ended their relationship altogether. Considering both Jason Mesnick and Arie Luyendyk, Jr. eventually married their runners-up after breaking things off with their initial picks, Brown's rumored breakup has Bachelor Nation wondering if a Tannah reunion could be on the horizon. Unfortunately, this is one question for which Carbone doesn't have the answer.

"Who knows if Tyler would even want that," the blogger wrote in a June 2019 tweet. "Maybe he'd rather be the Bachelor? I'm not gonna answer for him."

If this Variety interview with ABC executive Rob Mills is any indication, the alleged decision to choose Wyatt over Cameron wasn't easy for Brown — and it wasn't planned in advance. "You could see her changing her mind at the last minute," Mills revealed to the publication. "She really is that in love with these last few contestants, and she's torn over it."

Are Hannah Brown and Tyler Cameron's families dropping hints about The Bachelorette?

Fans won't officially know the fate of Hannah Brown's relationship with Tyler Cameron until The Bachelorette's season finale on July 29, 2019, but loyal "Tannah" shippers believe that viewers will see a reconciliation between the reality TV lovebirds. While there's little evidence on which to base this theory outside of Brown allegedly breaking things off with Wyatt, a few dedicated fans (with a whole lot of time on their hands) seem to believe that Brown and Cameron's families are dropping social media hints pointing toward a probable reunion. 

One Redditor posted a screenshot to the Bachelor subreddit which appears to show Cameron's mother, Andrea Hermann Cameron, liking multiple Instagram comments in support of Tyler and Hannah. Among the string of comments she double-tapped is one that suggests the song Brown and Cameron danced to on their first one-on-one should be their wedding song. And as other Reddit users have noted, Brown's mother has also liked Instagram posts from optimistic Tannah fans. Even if Brown and Cameron don't end up together once all is said and done, we think their moms would make great pals.
