Jesse Palmer Golden Bachelor

Heavy/ABC Jesse Palmer teases big "Golden Bachelor" announcement.

The finale for the first-ever season of “The Golden Bachelor” is airing its two-hour finale, and host Jesse Palmer teased something big on the horizon. However, it seems spoiler guru Reality Steve managed to spill the beans first.

As the finale began, Palmer told viewers he had a shocking announcement coming. Bachelor Nation immediately started buzzing about what the supposed shocker might be, and there were plenty of guesses across social media.

Previous spoilers for “The Golden Bachelor” have revealed that Gerry Turner will choose Theresa Nist over Leslie Fhima. The two are reportedly engaged and still together, according to a November 21 Instagram post from podcaster and blogger Reality Steve.

Before Palmer could do his big reveal, though, Reality Steve took to social media to spill the beans. He says the announcement will be that Turner and Nist will definitely be getting married, and their wedding will be televised on ABC.

Reality Steve Says Gerry Turner & Theresa Nist Are Already Planning a Wedding

Just minutes after Palmer’s “The Golden Bachelor” tease aired in the Eastern and Central time zones, Reality Steve tweeted what he had learned.

“(BIG SPOILER): Jesse Palmer just opened the show saying ‘Get ready for an announcement that’ll leave all of Bachelor Nation stunned.’ That announcement is going to be Gerry and Theresa are getting married and ABC is gonna televise it. Not tonight, but it’s gonna happen.”

“Wow! I’m speechless. And here for it,” one “The Golden Bachelor” fan tweeted in response to the spoiler.

Another tweeted, “Omg, that’s amazing!!!!!!!”

A similarly thrilled viewer added, “I’m so here for that!! Yes!!”

Many Fans Expected a ‘Golden Bachelorette’ Announcement

“The Golden Bachelor” fans had plenty of theories regarding Palmer’s tease.

One viewer tweeted, “This ‘special announcement’ better be Golden Bachelorette!!!”

There has been a lot of buzz over the idea ABC could do a season of “The Golden Bachelorette” next. Palmer thinks it should happen, but of course, it’s not his decision to make.

Even though ABC has not confirmed they will do “The Golden Bachelorette,” fans have rallied to see Faith Martin, Susan Noles, or perhaps runner-up Leslie Fhima in the lead role. For now, however, fans will have to hang tight.

“The special announcement better be Leslie and Faith as Golden Bachelorettes,” tweeted another eager fan.

“Praying that the ‘announcement that’ll leave us stunned’ is the Golden Bachelorette reveal,” expressed another like-minded viewer.

“I have a strange feeling about this finale. Not sure who he picked, if any, but that announcement was odd,” a slightly concerned viewer admitted.

Shortly before Palmer finally made his big announcement, he teased it in an even bigger way. He confirmed it was about “The Golden Bachelor,” and indicated it would forever change Bachelor Nation.

At the very end of the episode, Palmer shared his announcement, and Reality Steve’s spoiler was correct. In fact, “The Golden Bachelor” host revealed one additional major detail. Turner and Nist are getting married very soon, as they feel they don’t have time to waste.

Viewers can watch Turner and Nist’s wedding live on ABC on January 4, 2024.

Palmer also gifted the couple a trip to Italy, which Turner announced they could use as their honeymoon.
