‘The Bachelor’ spoilers: Chris Soules on Britt Nilsson, Jillian Anderson, Ashley Salter on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’
There was a massive change in the way that Jimmy Kimmel did things on his late-night talk show Monday night, and it involved doing something that we felt he really should have done a long time ago: Trying not to give away everything that happened on this season of “The Bachelor.”
Chris Soules was his major guest Monday night, but he decided not to tell him who his final contestants were. Typically, this has become a bit over the years where somehow, Jimmy miraculously picks almost the entire final four correctly, and then makes the Bachelor or Bachelorette uncomfortable at the same time. We never quite realized how he got away with this, mostly because it was pretty clear that someone was just reading the spoilers and putting them out there for people.
This time around, Kimmel claimed that due to an upcoming appearance that he has on “The Bachelor,” he already knows “too much” to make accurate predictions. Sure, Jimmy. What happened next was actually something we found much more entertaining, as Kimmel held up pictures of various women on the show this season, and asked Chris whether they were “crazy” or “not crazy.” There were some notables on here, including Ashley Salter (master of the onion speech from last night), Tara Eddings (who got drunk on the first night), First Impression Rose recipient Britt Nilsson, and a few others. News producer Jillian Anderson was also a hot topic due to her muscles, but Chris was coy on whether or not he actually liked her.
The running joke here was that Chris probably ended up spoiling a few contestants’ fate in the process, almost to where Jimmy did not need to even do anything. In all honesty, though, these women Chris mentions in a negative light were not contenders to win in the first place.
