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.


Regardless, Andi Dorfman told host Chris Harrison that she wanted nothing to do with it, and Chris gave his namesake the bad news, despite his pleas.

Whether he got played or not, the wannabe player from Bachelor Pad does seem stalkerish, and seeing him summarily dismissed was kind of classic.

Maybe next time, bruh. There’s always Bachelor in Paradise.
