Bachelor producers are dead set against any more spoilers coming out for the newest season, which features Sean Lowe and premiers January 7, and future seasons. After the website Reality Steve published spoilers for the first five episodes of the show, including the names of the women eliminated, they've sued the creator, Steve Carbone. The lawsuit comes just a few months after the first lawsuit settled.
Reality Steve says that he's done nothing to violate the previous settlement agreement. "That agreement does NOT prevent me from publishing spoilers. The producers have provided no proof that I did anything in violation of our agreement because there is none. They just seek to put me out of business by intimidation and litigation costs," he maintains.
The complaint filed says that the defendant continues "to seek confidential information from participants, cast, crew and other employees of The Bachelor Series and, in the course of doing so, continue to solicit and induce participants and employees...to breach their contractual obligations to Plaintiffs."
How does Reality Steve get all of his spoiler information, if not by contacting participants and crew and promising something in return? Are people really just so eager to spill the beans despite their contractual agreements? The producers should just stop going after the website. After all, it gives the show publicity and it's not clear that the spoilers actually hurt ratings. Many people probably still tune in despite knowing the outcome because it's still fun to watch grown women fight over a man they barely know, even if the man in question is hunky Sean Lowe.
