Chris Bukowski, the former contestant on The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad who tried to crash house on Monday's season premiere, is now crying setup.

He says the ABC show made it seem like he was some sort of stalker creeping outside, but producers were in on his "surprise" appearance all along.

"They made it seem like they didn't know I was coming, but they knew," he tells TMZ, echoing his previous comments about approaching them with the idea.

Chris Bukowski said he tried to get on the show as a contestant again, but was too late, so he came to producers with the idea of crashing the party.

Hoping for a shot with Andi Dorfman, he showed up for the premiere ... only to be shut down by producers and security, who escorted him away.

Bukowski is crying foul, saying producers concocted the idea along with him, even suggesting his romantic touch of showing up with a rose bouquet.

Chris Bukowski, who attempted to crash Andi Dorfman's opening cocktail party on The Bachelorette season premiere, is taking rejection in stride at least.

He tweeted in jest Monday, "I should have went through the back entrance," while adding in a direct tweet to Dorfman, "You looked amazing, by the way."

Chris also shared a picture of himself on Facebook Monday, holding a bouquet of red roses and giving his camera phone a smoldering, mischievous gaze.

"Pre-break-in!" he wrote. "Safety first! #seatbelt #bachelorette."

As The Bachelorette spoilers predicted, Chris became smitten with Dorfman during Juan Pablo's season of The Bachelor and wanted a shot at dating her.

"She seemed like a girl I could hit it off with," Bukowski, 27, told Ryan Seacrest of the reasons behind his theatrics. "She's beautiful and career-driven."

"I almost got on as a contestant, but it was too late," he added of his efforts to get on the show a second time. Undeterred, he reached out to the producers.

"So I flew to L.A., and there was no turning back," he told Seacrest.

Chris Bukowski was sent packing by Emily Maynard on The Bachelorette last night, leaving Arie Luyendyk, Jr., Jef Holm and Sean Lowe to vie for her heart.

The Bachelorette spoilers we posted earlier today reveal who (allegedly) wins if you're curious. In any case, Chris will be moving on ... to Bachelor Pad!

Bukowski, a 25-year-old Chicagoan, decided to join Bachelor Pad 3 and the quest for $250,000/15 more minutes of fame after Emily rejected him.

Of that decision, Emily Maynard recently wrote in a blog for People:

"I had a hard time sending him home, but wanted to stay true to the promise I made to his sister that I wouldn't keep him away from his family if I didn't see him at the end."

Chris will be joining 19 other Bachelor and Bachelorette veterans – as well as five "super fans" of the franchise – on the Monday, July 23 premiere.

A month after revealing the majority of the Bachelor Pad 3 cast, ABC finally announced the name of the summer show's final contestant in Bukowski.

Kalon McMahon and Tony Pieper from this season are also in.

Four guys. One girl. Four families. One broken heart.

Things got serious, emotional, cheesy and awkward as always on The Bachelorette as Emily Maynard went to her prospective husbands' places of origin.

Arie, Chris, Jef and Sean each received a hero's welcome and acquitted themselves well on make-or-break hometown dates, but only three roses were in play.

Who got the boot, and who's on to the final three? Follow this link for all The Bachelorette spoilers we know, then read on for THG's official +/- recap!

Over-under on the number of times the phrase "hometown date" is spoken tonight? 17. And we're betting the over. Minus 17 because it'll be close.

Ricki sighting! Plus 20. She turns seven TODAY, so Plus 7 more.

Minus 10 for killing time and recapping all the guys. Snooze.

Chris Bukowski is up first. Are they getting him out of the way? Guy has to be the clear underdog among the top four. Sorry Chris, it's just true man.

"On a scale of one to Polish, we're Polish." - Proudly Polish Chris. Plus 5.

Mmm ... beer. Emily Maynard drinks a lot of it for a girly girl. Plus 4.

She always looks very, very tan ... in Chicago, in early spring, that makes one of them. Minus 3 for maybe trying just a little too hard sometimes.

Plus 6, though for the hair. It's so pretty.

Chris says his folks are pumped to meet their future daughter-in-law. On the same day Emily comes by? Wow, that's gonna be awkward! Minus 10.

The rumor mill us swirling as to who Emily Maynard chooses on The Bachelorette. Spoilers to this point have been accurate ... but what about going forward?

The field of 25 has been narrowed to four, as tonight's hometown dates feature Jef Holm, 27, Sean Lowe, 28, Chris Bukowski, 25, and Arie Luyendyk Jr., 30.

The favorite at this point? Still anyone's guess. Or is it?

There have been reports that Jef, despite looking like the Chris Lambton of this season - great friends with Emily but low romantic chemistry - is the winner.

There have also been conflicting reports that Emily Maynard is engaged to Arie Luyendyk, Jr. after he mentioned his fiancee on a recent call with reporters.

Sean Lowe? How could that guy not be a favorite?

Emily has even been linked (erroneously) to host Chris Harrison and Brad Womack by tabloids in recent weeks in this most unusual Bachelorette season.

For the first time in show history, Sean, Arie and Jef have all done interviews during the season, fueling speculation that each may be the final rose recipient.

What's more, the final three who go on to Curacao after tonight all left the island nation at the same time, making it unclear who finished second (or third).

What do we know about tonight, and beyond? Is there a surprise in store regarding the season finale? Follow the jump for The Bachelorette spoilers ...
