The Bachelorette Boots Two Suitors Before They Meet Hannah Brown! Why?

by at .

If you've been following The Bachelorette Spoilers, you know that there's a clear frontrunner for Hannah Brown's affections.

But apparently two of the men initially selected by producers never even got to meet Hannah, let alone date her.

It looks like producers discovered that two of Hannah's would-be suitors had skeletons in their closet -- and yanked them from production.

If you haven't already seen Hannah Brown's suitors for Season 15 of The Bachelorette, know that the official list has gotten a little shorter.

First, Reality Steve shared a video by Joe Romeo -- who had been listed as Joe R. in initial photos.

In the video, the 27-year-old Staten Island native reveals: "I got kicked off the show before we even started filming."

"I didn't get a reason as to why," he admits.

Joe is both a firefighter and a RN. Why did producers give him the boot?

Joe R.

"All I know is that when I got my phone back I saw that I got slammed," Joe reveals.

He says that he had received hate online "for being -- and stereotyped -- for being a Staten Island guido d-----bag with anger issues."

Some believe that he is implying that producers found something unpalatable in a photo on his phone.

It doesn't look like they discovered something that made them want to contact the police.

Whatever it was, apparently someone felt that Joe could be too controversial of a choice to be on the show.

On the one hand, it's sad.

Joe had been looking forward to finding love on television.

Within the video that we have included, he explains that 2018 was filled with tragedies for him, and that he had hoped for a clean start in 2019.

Clearly, The Bachelorette was not that for him -- even if we don't know the exact reason why.

But what about this next guy?

Another Matt D.

Remember how there were two dudes named Matt D in Hannah's lineup?

Now there's only one.

Matt Dione has been removed from the running.

Now, unlike with Joe, Matt hasn't posted any video explaining his absence from the show.

However, his absence from the show might be easily explained.

Matt Dione DM harassment twitter evidence

A Twitter user named Sam Smithburger uploaded a series of screenshots that appear to show Matt harassing her in her Instagram DMs.

Based upon the dates on the photos, it appears that he sent unsolicited messages to her over the course of years.

At least one of those images contained some sort of photo. It looks like harassment, which is unbecoming of a suitor.

After the sexual harassment controversy about past contestants like Leo Dottavio, maybe producers are taking extra steps to do their due diligence.

Last season on The Bachelorette, the man who won shocked the Bachelor Nation to its very core.

During Becca Kufrin's season, Garrett Yrigoyen was exposed for having "liked" a number of vile, unjustifiable posts on Instagram.

Some tried to spin the posts as merely "political opinions," but this was something that bloggers like Reality Steve noted transcended party lines.

Clicking "like" on post after post that dehumanize children of color and trans women is bad, especially when it's done just weeks before going on TV.

To be honest, a lot of people in the Bachelor Nation haven't looked at Becca the same way since she decided to not dump Garrett after learning about this.

It's good that ABC is going above and beyond to avoid further scandals, but a lot of people want to know what Joe and Matt did to get yanked.

Well, what Joe did. If Matt really sent those DMs, his removal doesn't really need further explanation.
