Okay, so here’s the deal: Spoilers for the finale of this ~historic~ season of The Bachelorette have been pretty scarce this year. In any other season, the ending to both Gabby Windey’s and Rachel Recchia’s love stories would have been common knowledge long ago. But! If there’s one thing we can rely on in this world, it’s that spoiler king Reality Steve is going to give the people the full scoop before ABC does. And the people (hi, me!) love it!

That said, even though we are mere ~hours~ away from the finale, it is *finally* time to dish on how Rachel’s Bachelorette journey comes to an end, which will air tonight during the part 2 finale special. So, to be abundantly clear: THIS STORY IS ONE JUMBO SPOILER ON WHO RACHEL ENDS UP WITH AT THE END OF THE SHOW and how their ’ship fares after the cameras have shut off. Her winner and engagement status *will* be revealed, kay? Kay! Let’s dive in...right after this adorable GIF:

So! Reality Steve dropped a buttload of Bachelorette spoilers on us and revealed So! Much! Goodness! Initially, we got the intel on the final guys in Rachel’s brood, and then Steve told us that Rachel is engaged to...*drumroll*...

Tino Franco!!

Tino and Rachel had some super-cute moments early on this season—ahem, do we remember *that* stairs kiss and Paris date?—so this certainly felt like happy news (but maybe not for Tino’s parents who were not convinced of their ’ship nor the Bach process, which, understandable), especially after her confusing split with Aven, one of her top two guys.

But according to Steve, the energy between Rachel and Tino dramatically shifted, and ultimately, she ended their relationship. Here’s how Steve put it: “Rachel broke up with Tino and they are no longer engaged. Again, I know you’ll have questions, but outside of the ‘something happened and they stopped talking post-engagement,’ I don’t know any more exact details. But they’re broken up, and there won’t be any sort of reconciliation at the ‘ATFR’ from everything I’ve heard. It’s over.”

Steve also said, “I was told at some point post-engagement, Rachel and Tino basically stopped talking. I don’t know why, I don’t know who stopped talking to who, but there was definitely a ‘what the hell is happening here, I thought we were engaged’ kinda miscommunication happening.”

In a more recent update, Steve revealed exactly why Rachel called it quits with Tino. TL;DR—he kissed another girl. Yep. Apparently, it sounded like it might have been unclear as to if he and Rachel were *truly* on a break, but nevertheless, that was the reason. The! Drama! Of! It! All!!!!

Expect to see Rachel and Tino confront each other tonight during “ATFR,” which means the drama will be sky high.
