[The Bachelorette Spoilers Warning: This report spoils the rest of Charity Lawson’s The Bachelorette season — including Charity’s Final 3 suitors, her Final 2 bachelors, who Charity picked as her winner and ended up with, and if she got engaged.]
Charity just eliminated Sean McLaughlin and Tanner Courtad in the process of choosing her Final 4 bachelors.
Charity’s Final 4 men are Aaron Bryant, a 29-year-old software salesman from San Diego, CA; Dotun Olubeko, a 30-year-old integrative medicine specialist from Brooklyn, NY; Joseph “Joey” Graziadei, a 27-year-old tennis pro from Koloa, HI; and Xavier Bonner, a 27-year-old biomedical scientist from Carrboro, NC.

These four men will be shown taking Charity home to meet their family and friends on the next episode of The Bachelorette’s twentieth season airing Monday, July 31 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
Charity teased on the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast that an “extremely scary” moment happened while filming the men’s hometown dates, one that could cause problems later on.
“For the most part, hometowns do go pretty smoothly. But, you know, it’s not truly a hometown episode without some families asking hard-hitting questions,” Charity teased.
Charity went on to reveal that the heart-stopping incident occurred during Joey’s hometown date.
Going into hometowns, Charity was hopeful that seeing the men in their element would bring her clarity.
“But after a week of intimate dates and important conversations, it feels the time together has only brought confusion,” ABC teased of the next episode.
Charity will only have three roses to hand out after her next round of dates, and so ABC says “this will be her most difficult decision so far.”
Charity is clearly starting to fall for more than one guy, but the guys are apparently starting to doubt whether they want to commit to Charity for life.
Xavier, for instance, already told Charity, “[An engagement] scares me because it’s something I’ve never done before, and I want to do it once and I want to do it right. There has to be no doubt there.”
He continued, “I know I want to get engaged and I know I want to get married; it’s a question of is that you?… I’m trying to gain any sense of clarity. I don’t know what that thing is that’s going to make me fall in love. It’s just going to happen. [But] if you’re The One, I don’t want to pass that up.”
And during a July 17 preview of what’s still to come on Charity’s The Bachelorette season, Dotun admits, “This is a very trying experience for me. It’s making me question, ‘Am I really ready for this?'”
Aaron B. also confesses to Charity, “I know you want an engagement. I don’t know if I can do that.”
As a result of all the doubt and hesitation, Charity cries in the trailer, “Are you kidding?! We are a week away from you being on one knee and you don’t even know what you want!”
Charity recently teased that her Fantasy Suites were “rocky” and her final day of filming was incredibly “emotional.”
And ABC executive Robert Mills teased July 24 on Twitter, “Everyone is talking about how great Charity has been this season and SHE IS. I want to say now there is a scene in two weeks that is as good and strong and emotional as anything I’ve ever seen in #TheBachelorette.”
Mills concluded, “Just wanted everyone to get ready now. You will stand up and cheer.”
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Charity did not leave her The Bachelorette season alone and brokenhearted. So what happened and how did Charity’s journey to find The One end?
Keep reading for all the known spoilers about Charity’s The Bachelorette season.
Charity’s The Bachelorette season began filming after the finale of Zach Shallcross’ The Bachelor season aired
ABC revealed the identities of 29 potential The Bachelorette bachelors who were hoping to compete for Charity’s heart on March 18.
About a week later on March 23, Carbone tweeted that Charity’s The Bachelorette season had already begun filming at the famed Bachelor mansion in California.
“I’m a little giddy,” Charity told Entertainment Tonight after filming Night 1 of the show and meeting her bachelors.
“Definitely smitten. I have a good batch of boys… I was laughing the whole night. I’m so grateful and so fortunate to be here.”
Charity started her The Bachelorette season with a list of must-haves and non-negotiables
“I feel like, for me, I definitely am looking for someone who is a compassionate person — so someone who is extremely kind and treats others well,” Charity shared on Good Morning America shortly after ABC formally announced her as the new The Bachelorette star.
“I think that’s something I value and I have in myself, so I also want that in my partner.”
Charity continued, “But also, I love to laugh and have a good time. So a sense of humor, I think that’s huge. So anyone who can come out with a good joke or two is a winner.”
Charity also told Becca Kufrin and Michelle Young on the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast that she wants a man who doesn’t play games and brings honesty and confidence to the table.
In mid-April, Carbone said Charity was in the process of filming the men’s hometown dates, her fifth round of dates.
Charity’s Final 4 bachelors were reportedly Aaron Bryant, Dotun Olubeko, Joey Graziadei, and Xavier Bonner.
Xavier’s The Bachelorette hometown date reportedly filmed in Ohio on Tuesday, April 11 and Joey’s hometown date taped in Phoenixville, PA, on Thursday, April 13.
“Charity was on a flight from Cleveland to Philadelphia today,” Carbone tweeted on April 12.
Aaron’s The Bachelorette hometown filmed on Saturday, April 15, and then Dotun’s hometown date took place on Monday, April 17.

After her hometown dates, The Bachelorette star and her remaining men traveled to Fiji
Carbone is not sure whom Charity eliminated in fourth place after hometown dates.
However, only three men received overnight Fantasy Suite dates with The Bachelorette star in Fiji.
People magazine posted photos of Charity looking stunning in Fiji in late April.
The magazine had obtained an exclusive photo of Charity rocking sunglasses, a blue and purple bikini, and a matching ombre sarong while smiling and walking on the beach.
Charity’s season wrapped filming by early May
Jesse Palmer was back in Los Angeles on Sunday, April 30, suggesting that filming was already over.
And then Charity was back on social media during the weekend of May 6. The Bachelorette star posted photos of herself in a bikini and shared things on her Instagram Stories.
Something “that wasn’t normal” happened in Fiji
Carbone revealed on the May 1 episode of his podcast that from when The Bachelorette season’s Final 4 Rose Ceremony filmed in Los Angeles to the cast flying out to Fiji, there was “definitely something” that “happened in Fiji that wasn’t normal.”
Carbone explained, “I don’t know what it is, but just filming schedule-wise and knowing how they film this show… it doesn’t add up to Jesse being home on [April 30].”
Carbone pointed out how there is usually a day in between each overnight date followed by a Rose Ceremony, and then each guy should’ve met Charity’s parents before each receiving a final date. After that, it was supposed to be the Final Rose Ceremony.
Carbone therefore reiterated that something must have happened and he intends to figure things out.
“But Jesse being home [on April 30] definitely threw a wrench into things. There’s no way everything could’ve played out as normal, based on their normal shooting schedule. So when I hear something, I’ll let you know… [but] this is not going to be easy,” Carbone said
Carbone previously guessed that Aaron had made Charity’s Final 3 bachelors, but he updated his blog with new spoilers on Wednesday, July 26.
In his new spoilers, Carbone reported that Charity sent Aaron B. home after meeting his family during his hometown date.
Aaron was seen on a yacht in California on the day The Bachelorette season’s Final Rose Ceremony filmed, confirming that he went home before then.
Aaron will also be on Bachelor in Paradise’s ninth season this year, which verifies he did not end up with Charity.
Charity therefore advanced Dotun, Joey and Xavier as her Final 3 bachelors.

Charity chose Dotun, Joey and Xavier for her overnight Fantasy Suite dates in Fiji.
They were reportedly filmed in this order: Xavier, Joey, and Dotun.
However, the dates may not air in that exact order.
A preview of what’s to come on The Bachelorette has shown Joey kissing Charity in Fiji, confirming his place in the Final 3.
Aaron Bryant makes a surprise return to talk to Charity
In between Joey and Dotun’s Fantasy Suite dates, Aaron showed up in Fiji and asked to speak with Charity.
Aaron’s return was teased in one of the latest The Bachelorette previews, when Charity was sitting by a pool with producers and looked surprised by a man walking towards her.
“That’s Aaron’s arrival,” Carbone wrote in his July 26 spoilers. “She does meet Aaron later on that night for a ‘date,’ they just don’t have an overnight.”
Charity ultimately decided not to give Aaron another chance.
Charity eliminated Xavier in third place on The Bachelorette.
Carbone is not sure whether Charity sent Xavier packing during their overnight Fantasy Suite date or at the Rose Ceremony that occurred at the end of the week.
According to Carbone, Xavier — who already voiced to Charity that he’s afraid of committing to one woman for the rest of his life — is the man whom Charity confronted in tears, as shown on a recent preview of what’s to come on The Bachelorette.
Charity is shown saying in the preview, “Are you kidding?! We are a week away from you being on one knee and you don’t even know what you want!”
Carbone says Charity didn’t have a “Wild-Ass Ending”
JoJo Fletcher has previously teased that Charity was “torn” between her top guys of the season.
But Carbone revealed on June 26, “Nothing I’ve heard thus far makes me think this season had wild ass ending, other than Charity saying in interviews she did fall in love with two guys.”
Charity selected Dotun and Joey as her Final 2 bachelors on The Bachelorette.
“[The finale on] August 21st, you’ll get your official answer [about who wins], but I got the confirmation I needed two days ago about the Final Rose Ceremony,” Carbone wrote in his blog on July 26.
Charity ended up picking Dotun Olubeko as her winner and they are engaged
Carbone reported on June 26 that Charity chose a winner in Fiji and she got engaged, but she didn’t know which guy had won her heart.
On July 26, the spoiler blogger reported that Charity picked Dotun as her winner at the end of her journey to find true love on the show.
And Dotun, in turn, proposed marriage to The Bachelorette star.
“Charity is engaged to Dotun,” Carbone wrote on July 26.
The spoiler blogger explained, “All I can do is say what I say every season: I trust my sources… Took me almost 3 months, but I was finally able to find out what the result was back in Fiji.”
The spoiler blogger believes that Joey — who will become “the sentimental favorite once Charity break up with him at the Final Rose Ceremony” — has a great shot to become the next The Bachelor star since he finished as Charity’s runner-up.
Charity and Dotun are still going strong
Carbone reported that Charity and Dotun are still together and they’ve been happy ever since getting engaged in Fiji.
“I don’t report what I hear until I can get it confirmed,” Carbone explained.
“Finally got it confirmed a couple days ago, so here it is. Yeah it took almost 3 months, but by golly, I got what I needed.”
