1. It looks like the Bachelor in Paradise producers have been very sneaky about their casting process.
Guess it has.
After Brett Moore was booted off the island on Monday night’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise because of his relationship with his ‘not official but now official’ girlfriend Stephanie Boulton, the 29-year-old said the producers had set him up.
Now, another guy you might not remember called Ryan Jones – from Sophie Monk’s season of The Bachelorette – has said he too was approached by producers to be on the show even though he also has a girlfriend.
“I spoke to [Brett] straight after it happened. It was a total stitch up,” Ryan told Daily Mail.
“They knew all along and had even presented her with a contract. They also approached me to go, but I said I was in a relationship… To which I was told ok, you don’t have to hook up with anyone, it’s more like a Bachelorette meets Survivor.”
In a statement given to Mamamia, a Warner Brothers spokesperson via Network Ten said both Brett and Steph failed to disclose their true relationship status.
“Being single and available to find love is a prerequisite for being on Bachelor in Paradise. Brett and Steph were originally contacted as individuals but said they were seeing each other, so we wished them the best and moved on,” they said.
