As if this season of The Bachelor couldn't get any more scandalous, sources say Vienna Girardi has been dating a guy on and off for years - including while on the show!
How much blatantly manufactured drama can Jake Pavelka endure?
First, there was Rozlyn Papa and her “inappropriate relationship” with producer Ryan Callahan. Now it's Vienna Girardi whose dalliances are being called into question.
Here she is with the alleged beefcake ...
Is this The Bachelor contestant Vienna Girardi's boyfriend?
Anonymous sources tell THG that the hunk in the photos is from Vienna’s hometown of Sanford, Florida and that Vienna pulled an Ed Swiderski, telling her boyfriend “she was going to the bachelor so she can be on TV and to wait for her.”
A source also claims Vienna and he were together the night before she left to be on The Bachelor! If true, she's operating straight out of Ed's playbook!
This must be taken with a grain boulder of salt, however.
Other reports say this relationship lasted from 2008-2009 but is now over, and that the boyfriend (whose name we have withheld) is not in the picture.
Perhaps more significantly, we don't trust any Bachelor news. This, very likely, is part of a coordinated effort to sour public opinion on Vienna Girardi.
A narrative was seeded last week in which the girls begin to despise Vienna for unknown reasons. We believe this is to make us "shocked" when that "b!tch" receives the final rose in the season finale instead of sweet Tenley Molzahn.
Think we're talking out of our a$$? Our Bachelor spoilers are rarely wrong. This show makes up drama because 90 percent of viewers fall for it every time.
The other 10 percent? We are totally on to Mike Fleiss, Chris Harrison & Co. and their conspiracies, but we still watch anyway, so it's a win-win for them.
