‘The Bachelorette’: Former ‘Bachelor’ Contestants Are Calling Out Jed Wyatt For ‘Toying With Hannah’s Emotions’

Fans of The Bachelorette aren’t the only ones completely done with Jed Wyatt.

Last week, it was revealed that the front-runner has been fooling us this entire time and came onto the show all while having a girlfriend back home.

Fans have been sharing their anger about the situation on social media and just recently, former Bachelor contestants put in their two cents when it comes to Jed’s huge bombshell.

Jed only came on the show to further his career

Last week, Bachelor Nation was in complete and utter shock after it was revealed that fan favorite, Jed Wyatt, was in a relationship right before going on to The Bachelorette.

Wyatt’s ex-girlfriend, Haley Stevens, revealed to PEOPLE that she was, in fact, dating him before he flew to California to try and win Hannah Brown’s heart.

According to Stevens, Jed Wyatt’s plan has always been to go on the show to just further his career in music and he would fly back home to be with her.

“He told me [early on] that he had applied,” Stevens said. “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.”

Since coming out with this unexpected news, fans are heated that Jed Wyatt would do something like this and no longer want him to make it to the top four.

Even Bachelor alums have been sharing their thoughts and the situation and are strongly siding with fans.

Carly Waddell, who was on Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor and two seasons of Bachelor In Paradise, recently shared her though on Wyatt’s girlfriend drama with Entertainment Tonight.

“You can’t come on the show with a girlfriend! This show works. This show is about love,” Waddell told ET‘s Lauren Zima during Roses and Rose Live. “This is so horrible, and it makes me so angry that people, Jed in particular, are doing this. This show isn’t about promoting your career, it’s not about Instagram.”

“You’re toying with Hannah’s emotions, and we love Hannah,” she added. 

Hannah Brown is starting to fall hard for Wyatt

One of the main reasons Bachelor Nation feels exceptionally betrayed by Jed Wyatt is mainly because he has been a top contender this entire time.

Though Wyatt admitted to Hannah Brown that he came on the series to promote his music career, he made it clear that he was falling for her.

“When I signed up for the show, I was so clueless,” Wyatt said during a recent episode. “I was open to the idea because I love love. I do, I love the idea of it. But my first thought was this is like a huge platform, and I just want you to know the truth. So I came in with that mindset, but every moment that we’ve had has taken that away and shown me that now more than anything I want to be with you.”

Fans were a little iffy about him after that comment but overlooked it mainly because he seemed to have very strong feelings for Brown.

Now that we know everything that Jed Wyatt has told Brown was essentially a lie, we’re patiently waiting for her to find out the truth and finally send him home.
