As Chris Harrison would say, the season finale of the most recent season of The Bachelorette with Hannah Brown was the most dramatic yet.
Though things seemed to be going swimmingly for Hannah and Jed Wyatt, her new fiance, during the actual episode, the live finale said otherwise.
Rumors began flying almost immediately after the season premiered, thanks to the ever-inquisitive Reality Steve who revealed that Jed had a girlfriend back home, and Hannah had dumped him not long after filming wrapped up.
Jed will be considered the franchise super-villain for the time being, until some other hungry for fame contestant makes a dumb move.
Jed had been dating musician Haley Stevens for about four months when he told her he would be going on the show to further his singing career and gain some notoriety.
Well, he definitely became famous, but not for the reasons he wanted. Haley revealed to People, “We spent the night together the night before he headed to L.A. He told me (the show) was just an obstacle and we’d be stronger on the other side because of it.”
Jed is probably regretting that decision big time now!
Though Jed is the one we automatically think of in recent memory to go on the show with someone back home, he is definitely not the only one from this franchise to have done this.
Unfortunately for Hannah, there were quite a few bad eggs on her season. Scott Anderson also had a girlfriend back home, however this was found out on night one.
Demi Burnett, former Bachelor contestant, came to help Hannah out, and revealed to the former beauty queen that Scott was attached.
Hannah confronted him, saying, “So, I knew you were nervous coming in today. It might be because you have a girlfriend. I’ve heard that you do have a girlfriend and that you talked to her on Monday, so I just want to understand why these things would be said about you, and exactly why you’re here.”
Yikes! Though, compared to Jed, Scott looks like a saint.
In one of the more comical scenes from The Bachelorette, Justin Rego was caught out by Ali Fedotowsky and rather than sit and talk to her about it, the guy straight up ran through bushes with a cast on his injured leg just to get away from her.
Apparently, Justin's girlfriend back home in Toronto, Jessica Spillas, called Ali and told her what was going on.
He later put out a statement on his Facebook page that said, “I feel betrayed, manipulated and unfairly lied to by both the producers of ABC’s The Bachelorette, and Jessica."
Despite the lie, Justin running away like he did will forever be one of the most cringe-worthy and awkward scenes to watch on the show.
During a group date on Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette a woman named Lexi showed up claiming that she and DeMario Jackson had been dating for seven months before he ghosted her.
She had no idea he had gone on the show until she saw him on t.v.! Geez, now that is a good "I was ghosted" story.
Rachel was rightfully pissed off with the whole scenario, saying, “I believe you want to be here, I just don’t think you want to be here for me."
She continued, "Let me tell you something: I’m not here to be played. I’m not here to be made a joke of, which is what I feel like you’re doing right now with me, so I’m really going to need you to get the f— out. I don’t like being f—— embarrassed, and I can’t even look at you right now.”
Too bad ABC producers aren't able to do more background checks into the contestants personal lives.
These aren't the first, and most likely won't be the last contestants to have someone back at home while they go on the show seeking fame and future Instagram sponsorships.
