What's one level up from a spoiler alert? Complete episode ruiner? Because that's what ABC just inadvertently gave away.
Yes, the ordinarily secret-keeping network accidentally scooped itself this morning, when it prematurely posted The Bachelorette's week two Diaries of the Departed video on YouTube, a 90-second clip featuring post-elimination confessionals with the three suitors Emily Maynard bids farewell to this week.
The problem? The episode doesn't actually air until tonight. Oops.
In case it doesn't go without saying that there are massive spoilers ahead—uh, there are massive spoilers ahead. So, which would-be fiancés were given the heave-ho?
Sadly, love just wasn't in the cards for Aaron, Joe and Kyle.
"I have no regrets, but I think I should still be in there right now," Aaron, the 36-year-old biology teacher from Long Beach, said. "I'm disappointed that I didn't get to talk to her more, but sometimes that happens."
Joe, the 27-year-old field energy adviser from Los Angeles, was next up in the limo ride of shame, giving his thoughts on his ousting. Unsurprisingly, he didn't seem to be in agreement on the single mom's decision to keep him out of her and her daughter's life.
"She said that she doesn't see Ricki and her fitting in my life...I get a lot of situations in my life, I get her and Ricky in that scenario," he said. "I get that. I came here to find love and that didn't happen. I think Emily made a mistake."
As for cast-aside bachelor No. 3, 29-year-old financial adviser Kyle, hailing from Long Beach, rounded out the rejected beaus.
"Seeing Emily with Ricki was inspiring in a way, because it shows how good of a mom she is," the aspiring family man said. "I would love to be a father one day. I plan on having kids. We didn't connect, simple as that. I enjoyed myself here and had a great time. We didn't get that opportunity, unfortunately."
Well, that's that. But while ABC may have inadvertently ruined the ending, it's all about the journey, not the destination…er, right?
Tell us, will you still tune in to tonight's episode?
