'The Bachelorette' Huge Spoiler Alert! Becca's Already On a Hometown Date

4/26/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"The Bachelorette" star Becca Kufrin let a big cat out of the bag Tuesday afternoon when she was spotted shooting for the show in the hometown of one of her hopeful suitors.

This is where we tell ya ... SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT!!!!

Yes, you've seen the pic, but if you don't wanna know the lucky guy's name, look away now.

We'll say this ... Becca looked real cozy strolling through the streets of Manteca, CA with him.

His name is Garrett Yrigoyen, and if he's made it all the way to a hometown date, she's gotta be into him. The show always tags along when the 'Bachelorette' goes to her 4 finalists' hometowns. 

We're told cameras were following as the couple strolled through downtown and hit up the history museum and even met the mayor -- so, it wasn't much of a secret around town. There was even a welcome sign for them hanging at the local Transit Center. 

The show won't air 'til later this year, and ABC hasn't officially announced all the contestants, yet, so ... clearly, Garrett is one to watch. 

'BIP' Alum Josh Murray Will You Accept This Kiss?

3/14/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Josh Murray is living proof -- you can take a bachelor out of "Bachelor in Paradise" ... but he's not going to stop looking for love.

The ex-'BIP' star -- known for being engaged to 2 former 'Bachelorettes' -- still has full confidence in his pick-up game, based on this vid of him at a bar in Milledgeville, GA late Monday night. Problem is ... it looks like he's pretty rusty.

Josh was in town hosting a hospital charity event with the Children's Miracle Network earlier in the evening. He actually posed for a photo with the woman who was also a guest at the event.

Of course, the pic was taken before Josh started shooting his shot.

Sources close to Murray tell us they hit it off at the charity, and he took her out afterward to show her a good time. At the end of the night, though, it was the friendzone for Josh.

We can see that.

Breaking News

If there's an upside to having your heart broken and your engagement called off while cameras roll for a half hour, showing the world every excruciating moment ... Becca Kufrin's about to find out.

"The Bachelor" star -- fresh off of facing her former fiance Arie Luyendyk Jr. for the first time since he dumped her to pursue Lauren instead -- now has a second chance to find love as next season's 'Bachelorette' ... and will have 30 or so suitors to choose from.

Chris Harrison made the announcement during the extended "After the Final Rose" ceremony Tuesday night ... and the crowd went wild for the fan favorite.

Becca says despite the dramatic televised breakup with Arie, she's ready to move on, and gave a "hard yes" to being the next Bachelorette.

Good luck, Becca!

'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsay Engagement Party Was Totally Poppin'

12/1/2017 11:06 AM PST

Rachel Lindsay's officially in engagement mode.

The 'Bachelorette' winner threw a huge engagement party Thursday with her fiance Bryan Abasolo, the guy she gave her final rose to on the reality show. The couple's party was held at a fancy crib overlooking the picturesque beaches off the Malibu coast. 

Rachel wore a white gown while Bryan opted for the blazer-no-tie combo. This is at least the third engagement party for the couple ... first in Dallas and then in Miami.

Only this time it was a bit more formal and cameras were rolling ... so L.A. of her.

Chris Soules & Andi Dorfman Old Love Dies Hard So, Let's Grab a Bite!!!

9/13/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Soules and Andi Dorfman are partying like it's 2014 ... back to one-on-one dates like it's 'Bachelorette' season 10.

Chris and Andi reunited over the weekend by grabbing a bite Sunday at The Dubliner in NYC and looking very much like they did in Andi's season. They looked a tad occupied on their phones but were all about it just 2 days earlier at 'Bachelor' star Sharleen Joynt's wedding to Andy Levine.

Andi lives in NYC and played host to Chris, who BTW needed court permission to leave Iowa to attend the shindig. Remember, Chris has a felony hit-and-run case against him after plowing his Chevy pickup into a tractor that killed a man.

As for the mystery lunch, sources close to Andi pulled the old "they're just friends" card. Chris went pretty far on Andi's season -- 3rd place. Just sayin ... 

'Bachelorette' Star Peter Kraus Blink If You're the Next 'Bachelor'

9/2/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rachel Lindsay's runner-up on "The Bachelorette" won't say for sure if he's next to hand out roses for love -- but he's giving us strong signals he might be.

We got Peter Kraus -- a fan fave who wouldn't take a knee for Rachel this season -- and asked if rumors that he's the next 'Bachelor' carry any weight.

He doesn't necessarily confirm it, but he doesn't straight-up deny either, and even dishes on which of his buds would make a good one (even though it's probably irrelevant).

You be the judge, though ... he didn't have to blink. Seems like he could fulfill that high school wish of his after all.

'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsay Celebrates Engagement Party With Her Man ... And Exes

8/21/2017 9:54 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Rachel Lindsay musta been one helluva 'Bachelorette' -- 'cause she can be with her fiance and her exes from the show in one room ... sans any awkwardness.

Rachel and her hubby-to-be, Bryan Abasolo, celebrated their engagement in Miami Beach Saturday night at a little place called Bodega Taqueria y Tequila ... with 3 other contestants from her season tagging along for the ride.

William Gaskins, Matt Munson and Josiah Graham all came out to rage with the couple. We're told there are no hard feelings ...pretty obvious from the chumminess.

Rachel, Bryan and the rest of the gang fired up the festivities at midnight and went until 3 AM -- with the help of 3 bottles of vodka and a bill totaling $1,500.

To marriage ... and people we used to date. 

'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsay Take a Pic of Me & My Fiance, Bryan ... It'll Make Us Last Longer!

8/8/2017 4:23 PM PDT

Rachel Lindsay must know it's just a matter of time before the world loses interest in her season of "The Bachelorette" ... so she's milking the spotlight.

Rachel and her new fiance, Bryan Abasolo, were swarmed by paps Tuesday as they arrived at the BUILD studio in NYC ... and they took their sweet time to suck face for the cameras.

In her defense, Rachel's season finale was Monday night -- so it makes sense she'd be making the rounds, posing at all the stops along the way.

Still, this display of affection is a bit too on the nose for us not to cringe. Congrats, though ... here's hoping they're couple #6 to actually tie the knot for 'Bachelor' Nation.


'Bachelorette' Star Eric Bigger Not Broken Up Over Rachel's Rejection ... Not Even Close

8/8/2017 7:17 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Eric Bigger is the exact opposite of heartbroken after getting rejected by Rachel Lindsay on the finale of "The Bachelorette" ... in fact, he almost seems a little too happy.

We got Eric Monday night at Catch after Rachel's new fiancee, Bryan Abasolo, was revealed to 'Bachelor' Nation, and he says his heart is stronger after the show. He also talks race and defends Rachel's final choice.

As for his rejuvenated heart ... Eric explained it on the show, saying Rachel helped him experience love for the first time, which made him grow up big-time. 

His epic beard has helped a lot too, apparently. The real question ... next 'Bachelor'?

'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsay Cuts Last Black & White Guys in Finale Colombian Puts a Ring On It

8/7/2017 7:54 PM PDT

Rachel Lindsay likes her fiancee the way she likes her coffee -- Colombian, and there to wake her up in the mornings ... which is why she chose Bryan on "The Bachelorette" finale.

Rachel gave contestant Bryan Abasolo the final rose during Monday night's final episode of the season, cutting both Eric Bigger and Peter Kraus in the process -- the last black and white guys on the show, respectively.

Eric took his elimination like a champ, all things considered. He even got let go before Peter, who's been having serious commitment issues all season ... but bowed out in grace.

As for Peter ... he kept it painfully real. Basically, he didn't want to get engaged to someone he just got to know and fell in love with over 2 months. Bryan clearly did.

'The Bachelorette' 'Whaboom' Guy Pissed Song Got Cut

8/2/2017 9:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"The Bachelorette" did not allow the "Whaboom" guy to go out with a bang ... and he thinks everyone is worse off for it.

Lucas "Whaboom" Yancey tells TMZ ... he put a lot of work into a performance for the 'Men Tell All' episode Monday night, and it was a "mistake" for ABC not to air it. He feels the reunion show for contestants who vied for Rachel Lindsay's love was way too heavy ... and could have used his song for levity.

The good news -- or just the news -- is someone recorded Mr. Whaboom doing his thing in front of the live audience. So you can see for yourself what he thinks would have boosted ratings.

Not a whole lot of cheering ... but at least you don't hear any Wha-boos.

'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsay Calls Out Lee for Racist Tweets ... On 'Men Tell All'

7/31/2017 7:02 PM PDT

Rachel Lindsay finally called out "Bachelorette" contestant Lee Garrett for racist and misogynistic tweets he put out before his time on the show ... and he owned up to it.

Rachel confronted Lee on Monday night's "Men Tell All" episode before next week's finale, and she got to address what a lot of the country has already taken notice of in recent weeks ... that Lee has had some pretty controversial thoughts on Twitter.

One specific tweet that had everyone fired up was posted by Lee last summer which read ... "What's the difference between the NAACP and the KKK? One has a sense of shame to cover their racist ass faces."

Luckily, the meeting ended peacefully -- with Rachel saying she hoped this experience would better Lee as a person.

As for him ... he apologized to Rachel and the rest of the guys, and got some love in return.

'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsay Her Fam Ain't Buying Bryan's 'Love'

7/24/2017 6:24 PM PDT

Rachel Lindsay might be falling head over heels for contestant Bryan Abasolo on "The Bachelorette" ... but her family sure ain't. 

Rachel brought her remaining 3 suitors to meet her fam on Monday's episode, but when it came to Bryan ... mom and co. were quick to call out his glib answers and arguably premature proclamation of love.

It's a pretty awkward interaction -- they grill him with fairly reasonable questions ... and the dude just folds, even excusing himself from the table (and the interview).

Interestingly, Rachel goes to bat for her guy and bumps heads with her mom over the hostile approach. Truly a Greg Focker moment if there ever was one.
