The Bachelorette: Faking Justin Rego's Injury?

by at . Comments

Maybe they call Justin Rego Rated R for Re-shot and Re-edited.

On the June 7 episode of The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky suitor Justin Rego famously limped, supposedly, to her mansion wearing a cast on his left foot.

Or was it his right foot? That depends on what clip you watch!

Hobbled wrestler Justin "Rated R" Rego was trekking up a hill one moment, then emerges in Ali's talking-head moments later with it on the other foot.

Hey, at least they didn't show the cab dropping him off.

Pressed on this by Ryan Seacrest after some viewers noticed after the episode in question, host-pimp Chris Harrison admitted that it was staged ... sort of.

The editing was Harrison insists, but not the injury.

"Our editing department  - you never notice this unless a guy has a cast on his leg - sometimes they will flip a shot just to make it look prettier," he said.

Flip a shot? What does that even mean? Not that we expect everything on The Bachelorette to be real, but is he even hurt (ABC says yes, we're skeptical)?

Supposedly, The Bachelorette spoilers still to come this season were not staged, although you have to wonder if producers at least withheld info from Ali.

We know it's part of the show, but come on guys.

It was flipped. See his watch or bracelet is on the same arm as the cast in both shots.
