Spoiler site Reality Steve has been the go-to destination for “The Bachelor”-related dirt for a while now, but now the show’s producers are fighting back against the online leaks.
In an email on Nov. 17, Carbone allegedly wrote to a former “Bachelor” hopeful, saying, “Let me just say, I’m very well aware of your contract. I also know
that over 500 contestants have been on this show and not one of them has
ever been sued for the $ 5 million. It’s just a scare tactic. Trust me.”
He continued: “Just like they had no idea you sent me that last email, they’ll have no
idea about any correspondence either. I know you’re scared and a little
paranoid by it, but don’t be. Unless they are hacking your email or
tapping your phone, there’s absolutely no way for them to find out.”
The producers are asking for at least $ 75,000 in damages and an injunction in the suit, which cites “intentional interference with contractual relations and unfair competition.”
What do you think of the lawsuit? Are the producers right, or should Carbone be able to obtain spoilers any way he can?
