Locky Gilbert’s season of The Bachelor will finally come to an end on Thursday night, as he picks the (apparent) love of his life.
But rumours are swirling that the final episode is going to be more ridiculous than romantic, and it’s anything but plain sailing.
Here are the current theories doing the rounds…
Theory 1: Rejection & backtrack
According to Daily Mail Australia, Locky is ‘rejected by his winner, and then begs his heartbroken runner-up for another chance’.
They claim to have heard that it’s Bella Varelis he chose as his winner, who then rejected him, leaving him running back to Irena Srbinovska.
This isn’t confirmed, and if it did happen, may not make the final edit, so we’d never know.
Theory 2: Two endings
We’ve also heard from one of our Bachie sources that the finale is a little bit of a mess.
Here’s what someone linked to the show told us:
‘Producers wanted to really change it up this year and confuse viewers and keep the suspense. Also make sure no one on set would leak the ending.
‘So they filmed two endings, one where Bella wins and one where Irena wins so most of the crew wouldn’t actually know who wins. Locky was also told to look confused and to have a bit of an emotional moment for the cameras like he couldn’t make up his mind, this was all planned.’
Again, this is not confirmed.
Theory 3: A mix of 1 and 2
We imagine the reality of what actually happened is probably somewhere between both of those theories above, despite what airs on TV.
A recent trailer for the finale featured Locky agonising over his decision, explaining that he’s fallen in love with both finalists, Irena Srbinovska and Bella Varelis, so there should be some drama.
But Channel 10’s adverts for The Bachelor often tease scenes that don’t happen, so who knows?
Theory 4: Happy ending
In what could be the most controversial theory yet, Locky could just go into the finale with his mind set on one woman, choose her and that’s it.
No drama, no backtracking or double takes. Just, er, a happy ending?
He certainly made it seem like this was possible during this gushy interview with TV Week on Monday (click here to read).
