This season of The Bachelor is sub-titled: On the Wings of Love.
Perhaps, however, it should be referred to as The Bachelor: Bumpy Skies Ahead!
A new report indicates that ABC producers have come up with a new scandal is brewing on set: Sources claim a contestant has been sleeping with one of the show's crew members.
"She's been having a sexual affair with somebody else in the Bachelor House," a woman, supposedly referring to one of her rivals, says on a clip from the show that has mysteriously disappeared from ABC's website.
No way the network purposely leaked that quote and then removed the video, is there?!?
ABC reps refuse to comment on the rumors.
Last season, The Bachelor enjoyed record ratings after Jason Mesnick chose Melissa Rycroft on the season finale... only to dump her minutes later on the After the Rose special and ask runner-up Molly Malaney out instead.
That possibly staged controversy has at least resulted in two happy couples: Rycroft is married to Tye Strickland; while Jason and Molly are engaged and adorable.
Will the latest Bachelor scandal deliver the same excitement and popularity for the show? THG will watch it every step of the way, recapping and reviewing developments for our readers, to find out!
