‘The Bachelorette’: This Former Villain Claims to Have Show Secrets That Are Big Enough to Be ‘Sued Over’
Every year on The Bachelorette, at least one villain emerges. After their bad reputations on the show, some go onto Bachelor in Paradise to try to redeem themselves, while others try to get as far away from the franchise as possible. But one villain is threatening to expose some Bachelorette secrets that are big enough to get him sued.
Jedd Wyatt’s time on ‘The Bachelorette’
Jed Wyatt was portrayed as one of the biggest con artists during Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. Despite fans being a bit wary of him just going onto the show to promote his music, Wyatt convinced Brown that he was there for the right reasons and the two got engaged. Shortly after their engagement, news that Wyatt already had a girlfriend, a musician named Haley Stevens, started circulating.
Brown broke up with Wyatt before the After the Final Rose ceremony.
“I am not with Jed anymore,” she said at the Bachelorette live finale. “The engagement is over, we are not together. That is not what I said yes to. When I said those things, the things that I said to him on my engagement date, I thought that was my day, and I feel like that was taken from me and how special that was, and it’s been really hard to gravel with that, but I know that what I got is not what I ever wanted for a life partner and love that is not built on a foundation of trust and honesty. I have grown so much, and I know I deserved more than that.”
Jed won’t share ‘The Bachelorette’ secrets
Wyatt had a hard time overcoming the stigma that being a Bachelorette “villain” cast on him. But he won’t be revealing any of the Bachelor secrets that could help clear his name as he doesn’t want to run into legal problems.
“I had to weigh out my life a little bit,” Wyatt said on the May 17, episode of the Jed Talks podcast. “I had to decide, was it worth it for me to come out and say the things that I was going to say, and potentially spend months in court with people that I really don’t care about at this point in my life? No.”
But he does hope that fans can draw some conclusions for themselves.
“That being said, I hope that some of us can put two and two together and see that there was obviously something pretty powerful that I had to say, that was worth me being sued over,” he continued. “I would love to say those things. … Maybe there’ll be, like, a day that I’ll get to say everything.”
Jed says he was manipulated
This wasn’t the first time that Wyatt had mentioned some foul play when it came to the Bachelor franchise.
“I think I’m going to do some airing of the dirty laundry myself,” Wyatt said in a video on his Instagram Stories on Jan. 31. “I will actually be going into deeper detail but the facts are this: I was highly manipulated [and] deeply mentally affected from the show.”
Ultimately, Wyatt decided not to air his secrets for fear of being sued. The 2021 season of The Bachelorette is set to air on Monday June 7.
