Wes Hayden is a country singer from Texas and complete d-bag who is competing for Jillian Harris' affections on The Bachelorette. Not too...

Gia Allemand and Vienna Girardi both vied for Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor, but it's another gentleman from the franchise who has them both in a Twitter tizzy.

Wes Hayden, Jake's competition for Jillian Harris on The Bachelorette, and who later wooed Gia on Bachelor Pad, was rumored to be dating Vienna last week.

While Hayden denied the rumor, it didn't sit well with Gia.

"I guess I can hope to be The Bachelorette now that Wes is dating Vienna!" Gia Tweeted Tuesday, half-seriously lobbying for the lead role this summer.

"It's sad that people make up lies (Gia) that I'm dating someone to get sympathy and attempt to become The Bachelorette," Vienna Girardi replied.

Gia's reply: "[You are] a bad friend [and] everyone saw you guys at the reunion and in Texas. And [you] approached me. Hope they got it on camera."

"The world already knows [your] true colors."

On a recent episode of Bachelor Pad, Gia Allemand compared Wes Hayden to William Shakespeare. She subsequently got voted off the ABC series, but time away from the country crooner has not changed Gia's feelings.

Describing Wes as “such a good, decent man,” Allemand tells People magazine that Hayden's fight to keep her in the house “made his stock rise so much in my book. I thought, ‘Wow, he’s even better than I thought!'"

We're as shocked as you are: Gia has coherent thoughts?!?

Hayden, of course, is the same man that lied about having a girlfriend when he was a suitor on Jillian's season of The Bachelorette.

But Allemand sees a different side to him. She says they've become Facebook friends and “I’m definitely interested in [seeing where things go]."

Gia Allemand's exile from ABC's Bachelor Pad was not a shock.

The way in which it all went down, though? That's another story.

Gia tearfully withdrew from the kissing contest because of her boyfriend back home, then cozied up by the pool and in bed with Wes Hayden later on.

"He's like the modern day Shakespeare," Gia Allemand said of Wes. "I have my honey at home ... I never expected to meet someone so amazing."

"I am a confused girl, that's what I am."

"I didn't come to to the house looking to fall in love," Wes later admitted to the cameras. "I'll do anything it takes for Gia to stay in the game."

Gia: The Bachelor

GES?? WIA?? Call them what you want, it's an odd couple!

Despite making the final three of, you know, The Bachelor, Gia seemed beyond moved - to tears, even - by Wes' rendition of "Love Don't Come Easy."

Contrived nonsense or truly unscripted nonsense? We may never know. Whatever his motives, Wes Hayden tried to get Elizabeth Kitt voted off instead.

He threatened Jesse Kovacs, who's kinda sorta dating Kitt, that if he didn't vote her off, he'd be out next because no one wants couples on the show.

It nearly worked. In the end, Gia and Elizabeth tied. David Good, who got to break the tie because he won the kissing competition, sent Gia home.

In tears, Gia whispered to Wes, "I can't look at you. Don't make me cry ... I love you." A crestfallen Wes told the cameramen, "My heart just sunk."

"Somebody went home that didn't deserve to."

Gia said had she stayed, "I would've told Wes how I felt. I don't think Wes knows how I feel. Money, it's not everything. I am an emotional wreck."

Probably a single one after her boyfriend saw this.

Who would you rather ... you know?

Wes Hayden may be the most hated man in the history of The Bachelorette, but that only goes for the fans, and is largely thanks to ABC's shady editing.

The country singer just wrapped up a guys’ weekend in Austin, Tex., with some other former contestants from the past season. No one seems to hate him.

“Tanner [Pope], who lives in Dallas, drove up while Mike [Stagliano] and David [Good] and the rest of the guys flew in to have a good time,” Wes said.

“I loved hanging out with the guys. We had a great time.”

Some of the guys hit a local spa resort, while the whole group hit local hot spot Ranch 616, where they shared dinner, drinks and gossip about The Bachelorette winner Ed Swiderski - and claims he was/is unfaithful to his fiancée Jillian Harris.

“I had no clue whether Ed had a girlfriend on the show. I didn’t know about it,” says Wes, who was also rumored to be dating Laurel Kagay while wooing Jillian.

“But if it’s true, I feel really bad for Jillian. I don’t know what to believe to be honest with you. I feel bad for Jillian and for [Ed Swiderski]. But if in fact he was doing what everybody’s been saying, then man up and deal with it.”

Wes Hayden, Jillian Harris

Fans really hated Wes Hayden. But he doesn't seem that bad.

The controversial country singer, who says not to believe everything you see on TV, and went on record saying the producers sabotaged him, expressed doubt about whether romance can blossom on The Bachelorette at all.

“I have a hard time grasping that any of the show’s intentions are genuine,” he said. “If Jillian honestly came on the show looking for love and thought that she found it and then found out it was all made up and Ed was cheating on her, that’s awful.”

As for Jillian Harris, Wes Hayden says, “We connected on the show and we’re always going to be friends.” But he’s focused on pushing his first album Full Circle.

“I’m not dating anybody; I’m way too busy right now,” he says.

“I see a lot of my sister right now though. She goes on the road with me wherever I go. But you know, if I meet the right woman, I’d like to settle down.”

Ed Swiderski openly talked about having a girlfriend while he was trying to woo The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris, former contestant Wes Hayden says.

"Dave [Good] and I remember Ed saying he had a girlfriend," says Wes, who also was accused of dating (Laurel Kagay) while on the show, to Us Weekly.

"But we are not the kind who are going to run our mouths."

Finalist Reid Rosenthal says some contestants thought from the start that Ed Swiderski, 30, was bad news and "didn't care to hang out with him."

Adds Michael Stagliano, "There was definitely some point where I did think, I'm not going to be best friends with this guy. Ed's a shady character."

The Bachelorette contestants are required to relinquish their cellphones and laptops on the show to keep interaction lively among the participants.

But due to his as a Microsoft consultant, Ed Swiderski "had an agreement" to keep both "because it was imperative for him to have access for work."

This agreement is now coming back to bite the Chicagoan.

Ed Swiderski: Cheater!

HOW HE TRICKED HER: Rather easily, it appears. Poor Jilly Bean.

Adds Jesse Kovacs of his competitor at the time, "Obviously, no one knew he was saying, 'I'm not into [Jillian Harris] and I can't wait to go home.'"

While Ed did some work, he also kept in touch with Lindsey Johnson, whom he was dating at the time, and told he was only going on the show for fun.

He even texted that Harris "wasn't his type," and that he was "not in any way attracted to the chick." Just what every newly-engaged girl wants to hear.

On April 12, three days before he told Jillian Harris he had to leave The Bachelorette to focus on his career, Swiderski emailed Johnson to say "I love you" and declared that he was going to "molest" Lindsey when he got home. Romantic.

Then, after getting engaged to Jillian on the season finale, he banged her again eight days later, according to the scorned Ed Swiderski play thing.

Another woman, Bethany Steffen, says Ed was stringing her along while he was dating Lindsey (and Jillian) and tried to get her in the sack a few days later.

Man, people are really piling it on Ed these past few weeks. Sure, maybe they are all liars, but you don't hear anyone backing Ed up, do you?

Will Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski last?

Now that Ed Swiderski and Jillian Harris are together, and the dust has settled after the memorable season of The Bachelorette that ended in their engagement, speculation is already swirling over who will be the next star of The Bachelor.

There's certainly no shortage of options. Here's a look at the resumes of the top two candidates (plus a bunch of others who would make for entertaining stars).

Tell us who you want to be the next Bachelor in the poll below!

  • Kiptyn Locke. He's Mr. Perfect, and was rumored to be The Bachelor heir apparent for weeks. We were surprised Kiptyn Locke wasn't announced last night, but perhaps it is only a matter of time for the Cali hunk.
  • Reid Rosenthal. Talk about finishing strong. Never considered a contender at the onset, Reid Rosenthal won over America on his last few dates and with a surprise return - and heartfelt proposal to Jillian - on the finale.
The Final Three

Ed won Jillian's affection, but Kiptyn and Reid also captured America's heart.

  • Wes Hayden. Sure, he was the most hated man in Bachelorette history. But a good part of that was ABC sabotaging him, and c'mon, you know you'd watch.
  • Jake Pavelka. May have hurt his chances with the whole charade of coming back and throwing Wes under the bus. But Jake's good-looking and sweet!
  • Michael Stagliano. Jillian's choice, for the identical twin potential.
  • Tanner Pope. Daddy can suck a mean foot. His words, not ours.

Well? Who should be the next Bachelor?

Many fans watching The Bachelorette this season believe that Texas bad boy singer Wes Hayden pulled the wool over unsuspecting Jillian Harris' eyes.

For his part, Wes says he does not have a girlfriend (he and Laurel Kagay are just friends) and that the show edited footage to make him look bad.

So does Wes have a girlfriend or not?

"We'll never really know," Jillian told E! News. "We know he came there for his career - but we'll never really know if he's got a girlfriend or not."

"I don't think the world will ever see the Wes I saw," she added.

That's quite a vague non-answer. Does she even want the answer?

"No, I've never been that kind of girl, though," she said. "I'm like, live and let live. Whatever everybody thinks he did wrong, I can see that, and I'm disappointed in things he said, but I'm forgiving. I want him to be happy."

Bachelorette Jillian Harris

Jillian Harris just wants Wes Hayden to be happy. She also says Jake Pavelka thought he did the right thing, but it was her responsibility in the end.

Viewers went berzerk when Jillian chose to believe Wes Hayden over nice guy Jake Pavelka, who was brave enough to return to the show after being kicked off at the urging of the producers break the bad news to her.

"I felt bad for Jake. I felt like he thought he had to tell me this and that this was his responsibility, but it's not his responsibility," Jillian Harris said. "I am a good judge of character, so I would have figured it out."

Girlfriend or not, Wes has been eliminated, leaving Jillian to choose between her final two, Kiptyn Locke and Ed Swiderski - and a possibly returning Reid Rosenthal - on The Bachelorette finale a week from tonight.

In the meantime, The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All airs at 8 p.m. EST this evening. Neither Wes nor Reid will be making an appearance tonight.

Who do you think will win The Bachelorette?

Next Monday is the traditional “The Men Tell All” episode of The Bachelorette, which precedes the show's two-hour season finale the following week.

Two guys who won't be telling anything? Wes Hayden and Reid Rosenthal.

That's right. Despite being the most talked-about, hated man in Bachelorette history, Wes will not be on "The Men Tell All." This is almost certainly because he has been shafted somewhat by ABC and has since thrown the show under the bus.

Wes is pissed at the show for making him look like an d!ck and especially for outing Laurel Kagay. His omission therefore makes sense. Reid's? Not so much.

Last week, Ed Swiderski and Kiptyn Locke received roses from Jillian Harris while poor Reid was sent home. In every other season, the person eliminated in third place takes part in the "Men Tell All" episode. Reid, however, did not.

Why? Because according to the Bachelorette spoilers we posted yesterday, and what we've heard since, Reid Rosenthal plays a role in the finale.

Reid Rosenthal Picture

With no Reid Rosenthal or Wes Hayden interviews, "The Men Tell All" special might as well be renamed "The Dudes No One Cares About Tell All and Kill Time."

Much like Ed’s departure earlier in the season, it seems they’re setting up a return for Reid, who left saying “I should’ve told her that I loved her" and then “If I could reverse things, I would.” His "Men Tell All" no-show fits this perfectly.

There's also the "unexpected confession" Jillian Harris grapples with in the finale.

What this is, no one knows for sure, but odds are very good that it involves Reid, and like last season of The Bachelor, we won't be seeing a "normal" finale.

Knowing how huge The Bachelor's "After the Final Rose" special was in March - though Jason Mesnick dumping Melissa Rycroft for Molly Malaney will be a tough one to top - we will likely get a cliffhanger leading into that show on Tuesday.

It's still unclear what will happen. Reid Rosenthal could come back and profess his love to Jillian, and maybe even propose. Ed Swiderski does propose, from what we've heard, but there is the whole Chicago girlfriend question lingering.

Some have posited that Jillian chooses Ed, but he turns her down because of the girlfriend issue. Could that surprise twist be what gives Reid is opening?

Oh, and Kiptyn Locke is also still around in case one or the other falters. What is going to happen? Share with us your Bachelorette spoilers and theories!

Who will win The Bachelorette?

They say ... love, it don't come eaaaaaaaasy. They also say there are two sides to every story, and The Bachelorette's Wes Hayden wants to make his known.

The Austin, Tex., singer's eight-episode stint on the ABC show came to an end Monday after all kinds of controversy over whether he just went on the show to promote his music, and/or whether he had/has a girlfriend back home.

He's been called every name in the book, and that's fine by him. But Wes Hayden says it's all bogus, and he is simply a victim of deceptive, false editing.

In an interview on an Austin radio station, he addressed the #1 rumor that has plagued the alleged singer but also his alleged girlfriend, Laurel Kagay.

"I had a girlfriend last summer. She's still a very good friend of mine. Every now and then we'll go out and do lunch or something like that. I mean, I did some work for her mom, I'm good friends with her family," Wes Hayden said.

"I just called [The Bachelorette producers] two weeks ago, and was like, 'Look. I don't care what y'all do to me. You can say I'm the worst guy in the world and I'm here for publicity, that I've got a girlfriend. But don't mention anybody's name."

"As soon as you mention her name, people in Austin are going to know her, because we dated for a long time. Sure enough, they mentioned her name the very next day."

And that's just the tip of the iceberg, according to Wes Hayden.

As for his nasty statement after being booted by Jillian Harris, in which he boasted, "I'm the only guy in The Bachelorette history who's made it to the top four with a girlfriend," Wes says his limo comments were completely butchered.

"They don't play what I say after that. I said, 'Only guy in Bachelorette history to make it to the top four with a girlfriend. Get real, dude. If I had a girlfriend, I'd be home with her right now, and I wouldn't be putting up with this $h!t.'"

"They did stuff like that all the way through. They take whatever they want and just play what they want. It's not rocket science. I promise. I do have a career. I've been a musician 14 years. I would not go on national TV and sink myself."

Wes does note that "there had to be drama, there had to be ratings" and that The Bachelorette chose him for it, otherwise "the show would have been boring."

But he has a word of advice for people considering going on reality TV.

"I think everybody needs to remember that this is a TV show, and it's here for ratings. If anybody wants to go on any kind of reality show they really need to consider what could happen to them, and think about it long and hard."

"If you do go on, don't say a whole lot, because they can pretty much do whatever they want. Basically when you sign up for a show like this you pretty much relinquish every right that you have," Wes Hayden lamented.

Love him or hate him, he did make Jillian Harris' journey a lot more fun to watch. Click to enlarge some of Wes Hayden's greatest hits ...

Last night on The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris toured Spain trying to figure out which of her final four were in for the right reasons and the long haul.

In the end, the cutie finally made the decision Americans (and Canadians) have collectively been waiting for her to make for the past eight weeks.

But first, Jillian worried that Kiptyn Locke was too perfect and out of her league, whether Reid Rosenthal was ready to open up emotionally and start a life with her, or if she will ever come before Ed Swiderski's career. Valid concerns.

In Madrid, Kiptyn Locke revealed that “a proposal seems far off,” but the two sure had fun during a flamenco dance lesson and crashing a moped into a curb.

Smooth, it wasn't, but that was actually appealing for Kiptyn. In the end, Jillian declined to invite him to the Fantasy Suite, despite how much she likes him.

Way to play hard to get, Jill!

THE LAST THREE: Ed Swiderski, Kiptyn Locke and Reid Rosenthal.

Next stop? Seville, for a date with Reid Rosenthal. He was the only guy to fish for details about her other hometown dates, but Jill kept the heat on him, desperate to figure out what he’s feeling since Reid won't open up.

The most he could muster was how he is physically attracted to her and that she smells good, and he likes the direction things are headed. Fantasy Suite? Denied!

It was then Ed Swiderski's turn for a date in Sevilla. He detailed his decision to bolt The Bachelorette, only to come back in a move that wasn't staged whatsoever.

She was eating it up, despite feeling burned by that decision a few weeks back. Ed Swiderski even talked his way into the Suite to "catch up on lost time." OMG.

They'd still be sleeping in their clothes, however. Be strong, J.

Finally, it was Wes' turn ... to say feels comfortable around Spanish people because he had a #1 hit in Chihuahua, Mexico. Kudos to whoever wrote that line.

It only got worse from there. When Jillian asked if he'd move to Vancouver if he won, Wes Hayden awkwardly spilled a beer and changed the subject. So slick.

Jillian hoped things would be better during a fahn-cy dinner, but Wes Hayden pretty much admitted he came on The Bachelorette to help boost his music career.

Jillian Harris and Wes Hayden

Jillian's face says it all as Wes packs his bags.

He even unintentionally (or not) referred to Laurel Kagay as his girlfriend when Jilli grilled him for the 433rd time. Suffice it to say, the Fantasy Suite? No shot.

As the men waited at the rose ceremony, Wes showed his true colors one last time. After Kiptyn said "if it's me, keep it real guys," Wes responded, “If it’s me, know that I’ll be back home ... having lots of sex!” Crickets.

Wes Hayden then did get the boot, to the surprise of no one.

In the limo ride whisking him away, he downed a drink and gloated, “I’m the first guy ever to make the top four on The Bachelorette with a girlfriend” and said of the remaining fellas, “Them boys couldn’t so much as get a nibble in Texas.”

With Wes gone, who will win The Bachelorette?
