According to a reliable Bachelorette source - one who has been right about the shocking developments on the series before - there is some serious fabrication taking place on the reality show this season, and Jillian Harris is in on it.
If you recall, "Reality Steve" knew Bachelor Jason Mesnick would choose Melissa Rycroft at the final rose ceremony, then dump her for Molly Malaney on the "After the Final Rose" special. However he gets them, he knows his Bachelor spoilers.
Suffice it to say, The Bachelorette spoilers below are probably more or less accurate, and have not been printed before on our site. So read with caution.
On drunk, angry David, who got the boot in this week's episode:
THE RAGING LUNATIC: Was everything Dave said and did an act?
"Something has come to the forefront that shows once again how well engineered this show is. Not surprising to hear this, but par for the course for ABC.
As we all remember in the first episode, when David exited the limo, he stood in front of Jillian for a good ten seconds in complete silence. In episodes since, the guy has been anything BUT silent, and has come across as a drunken lunatic.
Yet on the first episode, he said he couldn't think of anything to say. Jillian Harris liked that approach and gave him the first impression rose for it.
Well, I found out in recent days, confirmed by three sources, that Dave was told, the night of the meet-and-greet, to pretend he was nervous.
In addition, the scene where Dave is speechless in front of Jillian was also re-shot THREE times because he kept laughing every time he did it.Like I said, not surprising to hear it, but it all plays in to "roles" that are created for each guy. So it's very tough to take any edit of Dave from here on out seriously, because it seems like they just decided to have fun with him.
However, us as viewers can only go with what they show us, so that's what I'll comment on. But if the first impression rose was already staged this season, exactly what are we supposed to think about the rest of this nonsense?"
A very valid question. The Bachelorette spoiler oracle also reiterated a claim he's made before - that some men were offered thousands of dollars (50, to be precise) to appear in exchange for a place in the top four - but with this new angle:
THE PURSUER: A Bachelorette insider is questioning Kiptyn's motives.
"Kiptyn, after telling us he's not a pursuer, now explains why he came on this show: 'I was telling myself, 'You need to do this. You need to go after something.'
Well, either that or someone influenced you to come on the show with a few hundred Benjamins in hand. Hey look, I said it a month before the season started, and I'll say it again. I know there were two guys approached about coming on the show, offered $50,000 and guaranteed at least final four. Both guys turned it down.
Now, whether or not ABC decided to go after a couple other guys with the same offer, or more money, or less money, I don't know. Maybe they did, maybe they didn't. But I know that two individuals were offered money to come on the show and rejected it.
It might mean that some of the guys this season were paid, it might not.
However, I will say this. If Kiptyn ends up in the final two, doesn't get picked, and ends up as our next Bachelor, I think the writing is on the wall.
This show is telling a story, remember that. It's not that far fetched to think that's what's going on here. Time will tell."
