‘Bachelorette’ Frontrunner Speaks Out After Hometown Date Episode | THR News


“Are you okay?” “Um, no. I can’t make a decision, I don’t know what to do.” Monday night’s episode of ‘The Bachelorette’ was all about hometowns as Hannah Brown went off to see her final 4 men and their families. But as the drama played out onscreen, the offscreen drama has been reaching a boiling point making everyone ask the age old question: who’s here for the right reasons? Bachelor Nation was buzzing in recent weeks ripping into finalist Jed Wyatt, a singer-songwriter from Nashville, for having a girlfriend back home during filming. Speaking on the record to ‘People,’ Nashville-based musician Haley Stevens claimed she and Wyatt had been in a relationship for four months when he left to film ‘The Bachelorette.’ “He told me [the show] was just an obstacle and we’d be stronger on the other side because of it….He said, ‘It’s probably not going to happen, but it’s a huge opportunity. I’m only doing this for my music.’ He only did it for his career.” Wyatt himself admitted onscreen during a one-on-one date that he initially saw the show as a career booster, but ended up falling for the bachelorette instead. Ah, how romantic. And to add fuel to the fire, there are also allegations that Jed reportedly cheated on Stevens during their relationship. Bachelor spoiler blogger Steve Carbone of ‘Reality Steve’ reported that Wyatt slept with another woman 10 days before the couple went on vacation, claiming that he has text messages to back up the claim. Carbone revealed the claim to Stevens while she was on his podcast. In the midst of all this mess, Wyatt took to Instagram ahead of Monday’s episode to ask viewers to be patient until he is able to speak openly. He also said that he and his family are being attacked saying, “Threatening letters and phone calls have been sent to our homes. My parents and sister are being verbally attacked in public. I beg you to remember what seems like a harmless action is damaging to real people.” On Monday night’s episode Brown headed to his hometown where she was really able to press his family on his true intentions, and sadly it didn’t go as well as she hoped. Both Wyatt’s parents and his sister had warnings for Brown, airing their concerns about the singer being able to focus on a relationship and potential engagement, while also following his music career dreams. Brown left the night doubting the relationship more than ever saying she didn’t get the validation she needed. The whole encounter proved to be arguably even more awkward for viewers who now know more about Wyatt’s history than assumingly Hannah herself at the time. And further complicating the season for viewers is another claim that finalist Peter Weber, whose hometown aired first on Monday, has also been accused of having a girlfriend while auditioning for the show. A Twitter user posted a picture of the Delta pilot kissing a woman and wrote, “Pete: auditioned for this show while simultaneously dating one of my best friends. And begging her to move in with him.” ‘Reality Steve’ reportedly spoke to the alleged woman in question, but she did not want to publish the interview. Between these cheating allegations and the tense encounter about premarital sex with controversial frontrunner Luke Parker that the show has been teasing all season long, the only finalist left without controversy is Tyler Cameron. The episode ended with no elimination and all 4 finalists moving onto overnight dates. Because the finalists are not able to officially speak out until their time on the show is over, this means that viewers will likely have to wait until the ‘Men Tell All’ reunion or ‘After the Final Rose’ to hear the contestants’ side of all the drama. Alright for more ‘Bachelorette’ updates head to THR.com and let us know in the comments who you think is really here for the right reasons. Until next time for The Hollywood Reporter News I’m Neha Joy.

  1. Tyler is , his been through a lot with his Dad situation. and for him to step up when his dad was sick is good sign, you can see he is a family man ….

  2. How can Jed get married? Can he support a family? No. He has no talent. Dad’s paying the rent. His family knows he’s not ready.

  3. Feel bad for Hannah. Why can the show's producers check these men out more??? Check around and find out if they are in other relationships–think that would be easy to do. Or. do they want this controversy. If so, awful, and not thinking of the bachelorette and reason for the show–to find true love. Or is it??

  4. This is so sad, if these people aren't doing this show for a chance at love I'm going to stop watching. Obviously if someone gets other opportunities as they might not get picked, ok. But to purpose this is desucuting

  5. Ok so I think these girls tweeting about the guys having previous gfs is annoying. I think they just want attention. Everyone’s destiny is written and you never know when and where you’re gonna find true love. Let them be gosh

  6. And for the record they should be attacked we all know he is there for the wrong reasons but his family went on national television and was just straight rude and ugly and how did they hide his girlfriend when Hannah went to his hometown hmmm…

  7. Why is everyone so shocked that good looking young men dated before the TV show? It’s just a reality show, prob mostly scripted for drama. If I were any of those guys, I would have bailed by now since Hannah allowed Luke to monopolize the show.
