Reality Steve Sued By Bachelor Producers

Reality Steve, aka Steve Carbone aka The Guy Who Regularly Spoils The Bachelor For Millions, has been sued by producers of the show for doing just that. According to The Hollywood Reporter:

On December 12, Carbone posted spoilers for the first five episodes of The Bachelor, which this season, will feature Sean Lowe. Included in his post were the full names of the women eliminated from the competition.

By the end of last month, Bachelor producers had gone to California federal court to lodge a new complaint. The plaintiffs say they believe that Carbone continues “to seek confidential information from participants, cast, crew and other employees of The Bachelor Series and, in the course of doing so, continue to solicit and induce participants and employees of The Bachelor Series to breach their contractual obligations to Plaintiffs.”

This is the second time the producers have sued Dallas-based Carbone; the first suit was settled. Our Laura Kostelny profiled Carbone in 2011.
