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 ...

Vienna Girardi, Boyfriend

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.

The drama on The Bachelor so far this season was nothing, Jake Pavelka says.

According to an interview he did with Entertainment Tonight, the lowest point on the hit ABC series hasn't happened yet, and when it does, look out!

"That is yet to come and it won't be any secret," the 31-year-old commercial pilot says. "It's horrible. Awful. On a scale of one to 10, it nears a 10."

Jake says that he was "so devastated" by the events that he had to turn himself off a little bit. "It is juicy now, but it is going to get a lot juicier."

Will You Accept This Rose?

Despite everything that has happened on The Bachelor, Jake Pavelka says none of the women ever got on his nerves and there was no point at which he wanted to bolt.

In fact, he hopes that Rozlyn Papa, who was accused of an "inappropriate relationship" with producer Ryan Callahan, which she denies, finds love.

As for crazy Michelle, who came off as bat$hit insane, he says, "Great girl. Maybe a little over emotional, but she was there for me, not anybody else."

And then there is the lovely Vienna Girardi, who has proven to be a huge hit with Jake so far, but not exactly with the other girls in the mansion.

"There is a level of honesty that comes from her that is turning the girls off," he says. "It is like on our bungee jumping date, it went really well."

"She goes back and starts talking about it, saying, 'You really get to see who Jake is,' but the other girls don't want to hear that. She is naturally trying to talk about something wonderful in her life. Bless her heart, it gets her in trouble."

Bless her heart indeed, my man.

Tenley

Early favorites Tenley Molzahn, left, and Vienna Girardi.

As the pretenders are culled from the field of contenders each week, the show is getting closer to overnight, fantasy suite dates. Jake's take on that?

"I have nothing to apologize for," he says. "The greatest thing about the fantasy suites is you don't have to go in there and make babies. It is a great opportunity to go in there and spend more time with a girl you are falling in love with."

So we're guessing Jake doesn't get Tenley pregnant in the fantasy suite. Too bad, that would make for a great subplot after he chooses Vienna.

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.

The Bachelor's Michelle? Not what you would call sane. But at least she says she can laugh looking back at her memorable appearance on the reality show.

Laughing through tears? Laughing as she plots the murder of Jake Pavelka, Tenley Molzahn and Vienna Girardi? Possibly. Hope they have alarm systems.

Ben Flajnik Shirtless

On Monday night's episode of The Bachelor, Michelle became the second contestant this season to make an exit before any roses were even doled out.

The previous week, Rozlyn Papa was booted off for her so-called "inappropriate" conduct. This week, Jake asked crazy pants Michelle nicely to hit the road.

Michelle basically demanded that Jake kiss her, then threatened to leave because of their lack of one-on-one time, unless Pavelka insisted that she stay.

Jake's response: "I think it would be better if you did leave."

The booted Michelle, a fan favorite, appeared today on Wednesday's Ellen, and told Ellen DeGeneres "I laugh about it!" as she recounts how it all went wrong.

"You have to expect something like that going into the show," she says, which is ironic, as she seemed completely unprepared to deal with ... well, anything.

Michelle tells DeGeneres that she sensed "hesitation" from Jake Pavelka when she asked if she could kiss him - ya think?! - and it hurt: "I was in it full force."

"I didn't feel anything back from him. Why waste each other's time?"

She blames the encounter on the group date format: "It would have been different if we had one-on-one date," she said. "It was like eight of us and it was the whole day and evening; I didn't even get to talk to him until that night."

A fact that she let everyone know on a routine basis with icy glares, near-meltdowns, panic attacks and serial-killer eyes. We'd say Jake made the right call.

Some of our interns are into the crazy thing though. Call us, Michelle!

As usual, The Hollywood Gossip staff endured The Bachelor last night to bring you our official recap, with points awarded/docked according to our scientific system.

In the season's third episode, Vienna Girardi emerged as a frontrunner, and Michelle became even more insane. Here's THG's take on that and so much more ...

Jake takes Vienna bungee jumping "to overcome their fears as a couple." A couple who met like 10 days ago. And jumps off a bridge entirely by choice. Minus 5.

Plus 12, though, for the show blatantly recycling this story line from Jason and Molly's season, but Minus 12 for V saying she's "on cloud Jake right now." Wow.

Michelle: "I really want a 1-on-1 date with Jake. I really do." You're joking! Plus 16, as she also wants to kiss Jake softly and pull his hair. She is bat$h!t insane.

Jake and His Harem

Jake Pavelka and his Bachelor babes after their comedy venture.

Plus 6 to Jon Lovitz for purposely not being funny at his own comedy club, in order to help take the pressure of the suitors. (That is what he was doing, right?!?)

Corrie absolutely trashes Vienna Girardi in her standup routine, and other girls throw her under the bus too. Minus 10 for the cattiness, even for The Bachelor.

The girls HATE Vienna, yet we never see her do anything bad. A theory? It's part of the narrative so we're "shocked" when she wins (see Bachelor spoilers). Even.

Ali on Michelle: "She just seems a little off." Ya think?! Plus 2.

Ella had a nice date with Jake at Sea World. They're great together, but Minus 4 because they involved her 7-year-old son when she's obviously not gonna win.

Tenley Molzahn opens up to Jake about her past and divorce. We admit it, we're finally hooked on a contestant. She seems so sincere and squeaky. Plus 13.

Tenley and Jake

Jake and sweet, sweet Tenley have a tender moment.

Jake: "I'm not a serial dater." With the exception of appearing on two reality shows based around dating. Minus 4, because we thought he "believed in the process."

Mean, when Michelle pressures Jake to kiss her, and he reluctantly does so, his expression is PRICELESS. Plus 1,000 because he's as scared of her as we are!

Minus 7 for Elizabeth being such a tease, and a really bad one at that. Seriously, girls used to play these games with us in fifth grade. They totally worked, but still.

TOTAL: +1,007. SEASON: +23. Roses: Vienna, Ella, Gia, Corrie, Tenley, Ali, Jessie, Kathryn and Ashleigh. Eliminated: Valishia, Elizabeth and crazy a$$ Michelle.

Things our wives said:

  • [on Jake, multiple times] "Was that him attempting to be funny again?"
  • "These girls are even dumber than I thought, which is saying something."
  • "I'm going upstairs to watch videos of my own stomach instead."
  • [on Michelle] "Doesn't she make you nervous? I'm uncomfortable."
  • "I wish I could accept a rose ... so I could stab myself with its thorns."

With the drama of Rozlyn Papa and her "inappropriate" relationship with producer Ryan Callahan dying down, you knew The Bachelor had a new scandal brewing.

The bomb waiting to be dropped this week? Tenley Molzahn reveals to Jake Pavelka that she's pregnant! Well, maybe. Kind of reeks of a promo-only stunt to us.

Shayne Lamas and Matt Grant Photo

Tenley, who works in admissions for the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Huntington Beach, Calif., confesses in a preview that she's knocked up.

The 25-year-old was previously married, and said last week, "I haven't dated anyone since my ex-husband," leaving us wondering who the father of her baby is.

Our guess? No one. Tenley Molzahn is punking Jake and two seconds after she drops the baby bomb, she'll proclaim "Ha, just kidding!" Take that to the bank.

PERFECT TENLEY: Pregnant or not, will she win The Bachelor's heart?

Interestingly, the sweet, beautiful Tenley is said to make the final two this season, along with Vienna Girardi, according to The Bachelor spoilers we've read.

That's just speculation, but our source has been right before.

Namely, we knew about the Molly-Melissa switcheroo by Jason Mesnick, Ed Swiderski winning The Bachelorette (and likely cheating on Jillian), and the Rozlyn scandal.

What do you think? Is Tenley Molzahn pregnant? Does she have good chemistry with The Bachelor, Jake Pavelka? Are you rooting for her this season? Comment!

Ashley Elmore, a.k.a. the second craziest chick on The Bachelor after the bat$h!t insane Michelle, didn’t get a rose on this week's episode of the reality show.

Now that she's gone, she can't wait to sell out Rozlyn Papa.

Elmore says she witnessed flirting between Papa and Ryan Callahan, a Bachelor producer. An alleged "inappropriate relationship" resulted in their dismissals.

She also says she heard her co-stars say they saw Rozlyn was “snuggling” and “cuddling” with Callahan, including lying on a couch with a hand on his thigh!

Wow, she saw flirting and heard about cuddling? Scandal!

“There were red flags,” Elmore says. “No one thought a sexual affair was happening but they thought it was serious enough to bring to producers' attention.”

Ashley Elmore Picture

Both Ashley and Rozlyn got the boot Monday - for different reasons.

Papa insists no sex or even making out took place between her and Callahan, who she admits she is close to. Host Chris Harrison insists that it was physical.

The Bachelor himself, Jake Pavelka, said this week on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that Rozlyn Papa had "an inappropriate physical relationship" with Callahan.

His proof? Some female contestants "came up to me and had seen things going on," he says. Again, the evidence is so damning, we don't know what to say!

Pavelka remained mum when asked how "inappropriate" Papa's dalliances were. Asked if they slept together, he replied "You're going to make me turn red!"

Call us crazy if we're not convinved. Who do you believe?

The Bachelor producer who supposedly had an "inappropriate relationship" with contestant Rozlyn Papa just got dumped by his girlfriend, according to reports.

Hope it was worth it, Ryan Callahan! Whatever it consisted of!

The ABC staffer was already with someone when he allegedly wooed one Rozlyn, one of Jake Pavelka's rose recipients. She got kicked off the show as a result.

"He had a girlfriend that worked on the show at the time," a source tells E! News, claiming "They were together, and he cheated on her with [Rozlyn Papa]."

Callahan got dumped after the story broke. Here's a pic of the guy:

Ryan Callahan (The Bachelor)

Rozlyn Papa was booted for her "relationship" with Ryan Callahan!

To recap: On Monday's episode, Rozlyn was booted after host Chris Harrison vaguely accused her of an "inappropriate relationship" with an unnamed staffer (Callahan).

She admitted she was close to the crew member in question, but vehemently denied sex or even kissing took place and said, basically, that the show railroaded her out.

Yesterday, Chris Harrison hit back, insisting that the relationship was indeed physical, other people saw it, and they never would've fired Callahan without being sure.

Callahan has yet to comment, but to sum up, he sparked a national TV scandal, lost his job and his girlfriend, and probably never even hit it with Rozlyn. Nice work dude!

The Bachelor craze needs to simmer down a bit.

Oxygen has announced that Charlie O'Connell and Sarah Brice from ABC's dating show are now getting their own reality series titled When Charlie Met Sarah.

All together now: Huh?!

This series "takes viewers back to when Charlie O'Connell appeared on The Bachelor and decided Sarah was the one to end his single days," a release says.

"Since then, their relationship has been on and off due to Charlie's hard-partying ways. Now, they've reconnected and want to make it work for REAL."

Because we're all sitting here dying to know every detail about The Bachelor couple from... 2005. Why don't they just appear on Bachelor Pad instead?

Charlie O'Connell, Sarah Brice

The conflict will reportedly center around O'Connell's reluctance to get engaged to Sarah Brice. Guess he didn't keep that enormous rock from their Bachelor daze.

Maybe they can get Chris Harrison to host this. Now that would be worth watching. Sarah ... that was the final kiss tonight. Whenever you're ready ... for bed.

The Bachelor host-pimp Chris Harrison is in prime damage control mode, trying to quell rumors that the show manufactured Rozlyn Papa's dismissal Monday.

Papa has denied accusations that she entered into an "inappropriate relationship" with a Bachelor staffer, blasting ABC for concocting that ploy for ratings.

Now it's Harrison's turn to point fingers, telling People that Rozlyn Papa "had a physical relationship with a producer on our show. There is no gray area here."

"You cannot do that. Other girls on the show saw it. The producer confessed more than once [and] to more than one person. I cannot make it any clearer.”

"We would never go to the lengths we did, firing somebody and kicking someone off our show if we thought maybe something might be happening,” he adds.

In several interviews since her dismissal from the show, Rozlyn admitted she is "close" to the producer in question, but says no sex or even kissing ever took place.

Regarding Bachelor spoilers that the crew member scandal was concocted to oust Rozlyn Papa because she wouldn’t "hide" her son from Jake Pavelka, Chris says:

“We were five days in to taping. We weren’t worried about her telling Jake she had a son because she had plenty of time because she was one of the front-runners."

"The fact that she is a mom, not a mom, whatever, had nothing to do with the fact that she had a relationship with one of our producers and had to be kicked off.”

Sure thing. If that's the case, Chris, then riddle us this:

  • Why wasn't Rozlyn's affair shown if the other girls witnessed it?
  • Why was the girl's voice from the promo, insisting "she's having a sexual affair with someone in the house,” never played on the actual episode?
  • Why did you ambiguously accuse Rozlyn of an "inappropriate relationship" on the show, rather than explaining in any detail what she supposedly did?
  • Why were there so many edits/voiceovers/camera angle changes during your little chat with Rozlyn? That doesn't look manipulated at all.
  • Why did Jake not even want to talk to Rozlyn and hear her side?

Something to think about. Here's a clip of the drama ...

Who do you believe in The Bachelor scandal?
