We have been quite suspicious of current contestant Jed Wyatt on The Bachelorette

But now we are just beyond over him. 

After the singer/songwriter boldly opened up to Hannah Brown about why he really signed up for the popular dating show, she thanked him for his honesty.

He may not have signed up for the right reasons, as he admitted it was to further his music career, but he now swears that he is completely ready for an engagement.

Some viewers may have been able to look past Jed’s shady confession, but for those who still continue to doubt his motives, well good job — you are highly intuitive. 

And now that this shocking story has surfaced, I bet we can all agree that he has to go.

Apparently, Jed was still in a relationship when he went on to the show. 

Yes, he should’ve been immediately booted out right along with fellow contestant Scott who was also coupled up prior to meeting Hannah. 

(AKA their possible future fiance?! What are these men thinking?!)

Wyatt was allegedly four months into a relationship with fellow Nashville-based musician Haley Stevens when he first left to find love (or followers) on the reality show.

Stevens recently told People about her devastating situation, while giving us all the tea on two-timing Jed. 

"We spent the night together the night before he headed to L.A.," she said, opening up publicly about their romance for the first time.

"He told me [the show] was just an obstacle and we’d be stronger on the other side because of it."

Stevens says Wyatt was completely clear with his motives for going on the show, which he applied to before they started dating. 

"He told me [early on] that he had applied," says Stevens, 26. 

"He said, ‘It’s probably not going to happen, but it’s a huge opportunity. I’m only doing this for my music.’"

"He only did it for his career," she said. 

Stevens continued explaining that she was under the impression that he just wanted a platform. 

"He kept telling me, ‘I don’t want my dad to have to help me pay rent anymore.’"

"He said he only wanted to be top five… to be a major player so that it would be beneficial," she explained.

And yes Jed may have already explained all of this to Hannah, but we all know she would have gone total beast mode and thrown him out of the mansion immediately If she knew the real truth. 

As for Haley, she wasn’t worried about him dating another woman at the time because he reassured her saying, "It’s not real. It’s acting."

Even after Wyatt got the call in February that he was officially joining the cast of the show, the two took a romantic vacation to the Bahamas, where they said ‘I love you’ for the first time.

According to People, the last time Stevens and Wyatt spoke was right before he began filming. 

"He called me when he landed in L.A. He said, ‘I love you, and I’ll call you when I get back,’" she said. 

Bachelor rules state that all contestants must give up their cell phones during filming, so Stevens obviously grew nervous.

The poor girl had to read through spoilers and actually suffer through watching the show just to see what was going on with her man. 

"I was following along on spoiler accounts, trying to figure out when my boyfriend was going to come home," she said. 

"I bought a homecoming outfit that I was going to wear to maybe pick him up at the airport."

But as Jed and Hannah’s relationship continued to advance, she began to panic.

"I was terrified that he would fall in love with Hannah," she confessed. 

"In the beginning, I felt bad [watching the show] because I thought he loved me and was faking dating her."

"But then I thought, my boyfriend could be engaged to someone else"…

"Seeing him kissing her for the first time was the worst day," she explained. 

Hannah Brown is Pensive

Wow. what a terrible situation for both Hannah and Haley. 

Let’s all cross our fingers in hopes that it isn’t Jed who gets down on one knee at the end of this. (please be Peter) 

Either way, we hope Jed’s music career was worth it because pretty sure he is about to have like 0 fans now.
