Despite making every episode two freaking hours long, The Bachelor apparently didn't have time to air the bombshell scene it spent the past week promoting.
Conveniently, that scene was edited, manipulated nonsense.
An exchange in which Tenley Molzahn was shown telling Jake Pavelka she was pregnant was hyped to no end on the show's commercials, only to be omitted.
"It was cut for time," a show spokesperson said of Tenley's pregnancy confession, which, as predicted by THG, was just her punking Jake for a brief moment.
"There's something I have to tell you ... I just found out I'm pregnant," Tenley Molzahn told a stunned Pavelka. Pause. "I'm just kidding! I'm so sorry!"
The deleted scene appears below ...
As is their tradition, ABC's commercials had promoted a highly edited version of the exchange: "Just when this bachelor thought he couldn't take any more drama!" ABC's announcer proclaimed as Tenley told Jake "I'm pregnant" and appeared to sob.
The failure to feature any mention or explain the quote in Monday's episode marked the third straight week the show failed to include promoted material.
The season premiere promised a "special announcement" from Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski that didn't end up happening. It was their wedding date.
Week two was hyped up with a sound bite in which an unidentified girl referred to Rozlyn Papa's alleged "inappropriate relationship" as "a sexual affair."
That clip never aired on the episode either.
Tenley's pregnancy joke actually took place prior to when she gave her earnest speech about her past and her painful divorce. It was playful and meant for Jake to laugh, and was actually pretty funny ... at least in its intended context.
