Sad to say, spoiler sleuth Reality Steve snuffed down our Kira/Clayton fantasies before they ever got started. Although Reality Steve isn’t sure who won Clayton’s season, he has figured out Clayton’s final four… and unfortunately, none of them are Kira.

If Steve is correct, Kira won’t even get a one-on-one date, meaning she might be eliminated much sooner than we’d hope.

While Kira’s search for love may not have ended with Clayton, we believe she will have no trouble finding a good man in the future.
