Jed Wyatt’s Best Friend From ‘The Bachelorette’ Is Reportedly Dylan Barbour
Jed Wyatt isn’t the most popular guy from Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. After awarding him her final rose, Brown found out that he had come on the show with a girlfriend (Haley Stevens).
“The second night after we got engaged, Jed tells me that he had been hanging out with this girl before he left to come on the show. I was like ‘When was this?’ And I remember him saying ‘a week before the show.’ And I was like ‘Ok, so you broke it off.’ He said ‘yes.’ He told me it was nothing. It was hard to hear but I tried to let that go. Then a few weeks later, I get news that there was a People Magazine article that was out and I start reading it and it was not the same story that I was told. The article said that he didn’t really end the relationship before he came here. The extent of that and what was withheld from me after I’ve already said ‘yes’ is not ok,” she said.
During the last episode of her season, Brown announced that she had ended her engagement to Wyatt.
How the other contestants reacted to the Jed Wyatt scandal
After the scandal broke, some of Brown’s former contestants continued to comment on Wyatt’s social pages and show their support for the Nashville-based musician. Others, voiced their disappointment.
“Jed’s someone that I really got close to in the house and, you know, it’s just hard to see all this go down because I’m just disappointed. You know, I wanted the world for Hannah and, you know, it’s upsetting that it didn’t work out. I think he could’ve handled things a lot better than he did,” Tyler Cameron said on an episode of the Viall Files.
According to a source that spoke to Us Weekly, Wyatt is still especially close to Dylan Barbour from Brown’s season. The two just went to the OC Fair together, and they also frequently comment on each other’s content.
Barbour is paired up with Hannah Godwin right now on Bachelor In Paradise. Godwin is friends with Brown from Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor (we wonder how Brown feels about her friend dating one of her ex-fiance’s best buds).
The source said that while Wyatt is “especially close” with Barbour, he also “keeps in touch with” Garrett Powell, John Paul Jones, Connor Saeli, and “some others.”
‘The Bachelorette’ group text
In fact, all of Brown’s former contestants still keep in touch via a group text (but things can get a little cliquey).
“There is one big chain with the guys and then a few smaller ones with each of the cliques that hung out the most in the house,” said the source. “The majority of the guys don’t have any negative feelings about Jed, but there are a few who do wish things would have ended differently for both Hannah and themselves.”
But another source told the publication that some former contestants still harbor “ill feelings” towards Wyatt.
“Some of the guys still have ill feelings and resentment toward him” they said.
