The Bachelorette returns this evening and in keeping with tradition, THG has a deluge of Bachelorette spoilers for you before the season premiere even airs.
Who gets engaged to Ashley Hebert? That's still unclear. For now.
We'll update this post with any additional intel we come across, but we've got a bunch of spoilers already. Turn back now if you don't want to see them.
