ABC spoils The Bachelor’s outcome at upfronts

One of the final two women on The Bachelor 10 reportedly outed herself as the show’s winner a few weeks ago, and now the network has essentially revealed the outcome.

At ABC’s upfront presentation in New York this afternoon, a “montage of ABC’s triumphs just showed Officer Andy kissing” the woman, The New York Times reports. The woman is the same person who said she was the winner.

Virginia Heffernan writes, “if you don’t know what that means — the embrace — ignore it; but if you do, you’re a very loyal ABC fan, and yes it was a spoiler. At least I assume it was. Sorry about that.”

It seems like a valid spoiler since it matches the earlier spoiler, and since ABC is America’s most incompetent broadcast network, so one would absolutely expect them to air a clip that spoiled the outcome of a series. It’s just too bad they didn’t show the end of Lost.
