The Most Scandalous Bachelor Moments That Happened Off Camera


The Bachelor series loves telling how increasingly
dramatic each season gets. But what goes down behind the scenes can be
even juicier than a shocking rose ceremony rejection. From tragic crimes to phony weddings to scandalous
hookups, here are the craziest Bachelor moments you didn’t see on TV. Alleged affair Many fans were rooting for Emily Maynard to
find love during Season 8 of The Bachelorette, support that made sense given her tragic backstory
and status as a single mom. But were viewers cheering on a villain in
disguise the entire time? Jef Holm, who received the final rose from
Maynard in July 2012, might say yes. Although Holm and Maynard initially dismissed
the August 2012 tabloid reports of a rift between them as, quote, “bogus,” Holm’s brother
Mike told Us Weekly, “I can tell you that it’s all 100% true. I was there and I heard the fight and watched
the whole thing go down, Emily leaving and everything. I love my brother very much and, like the
rest of our family, I just want him to be happy.” Jef’s ex-girlfriend Kaylee also spilled the
tea to Us Weekly a month later, claiming Emily cheated with football star Matt Leinart. Jef supposedly found inappropriate text messages
between Emily and Matt that caused him to question their whole relationship. He reportedly told Kaylee, “She strung me along and was talking to another
guy the whole time!” By October 2012, Jemily was no more, although
neither Jef nor Emily confirmed any infidelity in their official statements about the split. Tragic car crash Season 19 Bachelor lead Chris Soules encountered
tragedy on April 24th, 2017 when, according to The Chicago Tribune, his pickup truck allegedly
rear-ended a tractor belonging to his 66-year-old neighbor, Kenneth Mosher. After calling 911 and reporting that Mosher
didn’t appear to be breathing, Soules allegedly left the scene and returned back to his home
before police arrived. Sadly, Mosher later died at the hospital as
a result of his injuries, and Soules was arrested and charged. “You are charged with leaving the scene of
an accident causing death.” Soules initially faced felony charges and
up to five years in prison, according to Us Weekly, but the reality star’s legal team
was able to arrange a plea deal in November 2018. Heartbreaking secret One of the most upsetting off-camera Bachelor
events concerns Britt Nilsson, who starred on Season 19 of the original series. Nilsson, in a brave move, revealed that she
struggled with a bulimia relapse during the show. “Yeah, I felt insecure, I didn’t feel pretty
enough, I didn’t know what was going on, I missed my family.” Blaming the relapse on “pain and anxiety,”
Nilsson shared that she dealt with the eating disorder for most of her life and that she
tried to conceal her health issue during her time on the show. “You’re mic-ed 24/7. And I would take my mic off and try to hide
it under towels so they wouldn’t hear me throw up.” Luckily for Nilsson, she has found support
in her now husband, Jeremy Byrne. “He just stuck by me with it. And he would ask me about it, he would keep
me accountable, and it actually got much, much better.” Racy ride Juan Pablo is arguably the most criticized
bachelor of all time, an opinion that seems to hold weight when you consider what he told
runner-up Clare Crawley during a helicopter ride. During a one-on-one date, the Season 18 bachelor
decided to whisper a sweet nothing in Crawley’s ear that audio didn’t pick up. As it turned out, that sweet nothing became
a total deal-breaker for Crawley. According to E! News at the time, Crawley
said during a confessional, “I’m shocked. He chose to tell me something that no woman
wants to hear. That he doesn’t know me and some sexual thing
I don’t want to repeat. It was insulting, and it was offensive.” So, what did Juan Pablo really say to Crawley? In March 2014, an insider told Us Weekly, “He said, ‘I love f—ing you but I don’t
know you.'” The good news? Crawley moved on from their breakup fairly
quickly thanks to the inappropriate conversation. The source added, “She’s totally over him. She is done with him and relieved that they
are not together.” Disturbing claims It’s pretty common for Bachelor couples to
break up after they reenter the real world, something Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray know
all too well. Well, not only did the couple split six months
months after Dorfman gave Murray the final rose in July 2014, but their breakup was chock-full
of drama. Dorfman confessed to Us Weekly in May 2016
that Murray would sometimes call her derogatory names during their fights, a disturbing claim
given their seemingly perfect on-camera personas. Dorfman elaborated on these issues in her
book, It’s Not Okay, alleging that Murray didn’t want her to pursue a career and that
he would express jealousy over her male friendships. Dorfman’s breaking point? According to her book, it was when Murray
allegedly called her a name in front of their friends following an argument. She explained, “My humiliation had hit an all-time high. I was tired of the snark, tired of the childish
behavior, tired of the accusations, and now I was tired of him.” According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution,
Murray said in response to Dorfman’s book, “It saddens me and is very unfortunate that
Andi has chosen to characterize me in such a negative way. I respect the private relationship we had
for those 8 months, and I wish her nothing but the best. I pray she finds peace and happiness in her
life.” Wedding fake out Many fans thought Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul
found love during their time on Bachelor in Paradise in summer 2015. The two cemented their romance with a wedding
in June 2015, an event that was officiated by Bachelor host Chris Harrison. The pairing seemed like a dream come true,
until the relationship imploded one year after their nuptials in June 2016. But what seemed like your average Bachelor
breakup turned into a major scandal after it came to light that the two were never legally
married. Grodd claims Faddoul “vanished” after they
returned home from Mexico. He told Life & Style magazine, “It feels like she’s a runaway bride. We had this fantastic relationship, and then
it totally vanished. It was like she ran away.” As for the legal side of things, they never
signed the paperwork to make their marriage official. Grodd added, “When we came back, we were supposed to start
the paperwork. But she stalled.” After supposedly finding flirty texts in Faddoul’s
phone from another guy around January 2016, the two started drifting further apart. Then in June 2016, Faddoul allegedly “cut
off all communication.” Dirty laundry The Bachelor contestant Bekah Martinez’s time
in the iconic mansion wasn’t always easy, because of her age. “How old are you?” “I’m 22.” “Oh my god.” Martinez complained to People magazine about
the alleged ageist backlash she received, stating: “I’ve never gotten so much judgment in my
life about how old I am.” Martinez got the last laugh, however, when
she blasted her season’s Bachelor, Arie, for his seemingly inappropriate DMs. It all started after Arie dumped Becca for
his runner-up, Lauren, in mid-January 2018, a decision that played out when the finale
aired in early March 2018. Amid all of this drama, Martinez took to Twitter
to share screenshots of DMs Arie sent her in early February 2018. The conversation, arguably a lighthearted
one, between the exes centered around Martinez’s missing persons status after The Bachelor
wrapped filming. After Martinez made a few memes to poke fun
at her embarrassing predicament, Arie sent her a DM saying, “This may just win the internet today. Such a shame they didn’t use your license
photo.” Martinez captioned a tweet featuring screenshots
of the DMs: “Dm’ing your ex is a good look too [Arie].” As for Arie’s response? He told E! News: “I think it just shows her immaturity.” “But I really don’t think that he’s mature
enough to handle a real committed relationship. I don’t. He’s compulsive and he doesn’t think through
his actions.” Messy relationship Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray met while starring
on Bachelor in Paradise in summer 2016. “I feel like we’re having such a great connection,
and I like you a lot, and people can see our connection and stuff.” The two got engaged by the end of the show
and they went on to have a long-distance relationship that ended in flames around January 2017. As for why the couple called it quits? Let’s just say there was a ton of drama behind-the-scenes. Murray’s assistant Hayley spilled the beans
to E! News, claiming that the couple got into a huge fight during the finale of Nick Viall’s
season of The Bachelor. Hayley explained, “[Amanda] ended up taking his things from
their shared apartment and putting them out in the hallway.” Hayley also alleged that Stanton refused to
return Murray’s car and the police had to get involved. In response, Stanton told E! that the clams
were all lies. Unfortunately, the drama escalated when Stanton
started dating Bachelorette alum Robby Hayes in July 2017. Murray’s mom commented on an Instagram pic
of the new couple, writing the word “wow” next to laughing emojis, a sentiment Stanton
didn’t appreciate, according to WetPaint. In the comments, Stanton shot back, in part, “I’m sorry you lack social skills and don’t
see how that is inappropriate/childish/slightly creepy… Hopefully I’m squashing this before the show
airs and you make 10,000 fake accounts to troll me like usual.” Misconduct in paradise Bachelor in Paradise faced a major scandal
in June 2017 when contestants Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson drunkenly hooked up in
the jacuzzi, right in front of the cameras. The footage never aired, however, after two
producers filed complaints claiming they were uncomfortable with what went down. The producers’ complaints then triggered an
investigation, which halted production for 10 days. Naturally, the tabloids exploded with speculation,
but the predominant rumor that emerged was that Olympios was too intoxicated to consent
to the encounter. According to People magazine, the investigation
ultimately concluded that it, quote, “could not support any charge of misconduct by a
cast member,” and denied that “the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy.” Both Jackson and Olympios later spoke out
about the scandal. Jackson maintained to The Hollywood Reporter
that the encounter was 100 percent consensual. Meanwhile, Olympios told Good Morning America
that she didn’t remember much at all about the incident due to a mix of the alcohol and
prescription medication she’d consumed, which resulted in, quote, “a horrible, horrible
blackout.” However she did add that there was “no bad
blood” between her and Jackson. “I have nothing against you, I’m so sorry
that you had to go through this, I know exactly what it feels like.” “Right.” “I had to go through it too, and I wish you
all the best.” Name calling Before Rachel Lindsay became the first African-American
bachelorette, she competed to win Nick Viall’s heart in Season 21 of The Bachelor. During her time in the mansion, she butted
heads with Vanessa Grimaldi, the woman Viall proposed to in the finale. Although fighting between contestants is nothing
new in The Bachelor universe, this feud is particularly juicy because fans didn’t know
about it until after the season wrapped. The topic only came to light because another
contestant from Viall’s season, Danielle Lombard, spilled the beans on Reddit, writing to one
fan, “Vanessa called Rachel something that was
extremely derogatory. From what I heard it was bad. Vanessa had to be separated for the rest of
the show.” Following rampant speculation about this “derogatory
word,” Lindsay addressed the situation in a conversation with Entertainment Tonight,
saying, “She called me a ‘bully’, and for her to use
that phrase was offensive to me. Vanessa told me that I used ‘aggressive’ tones
with her, and I was very upset by that. There are so many stereotypes placed on African-American
women.” Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  1. It's "extremely offensive" to say someone is acting like a bully when they are proving so by their actions? There are 100 worse words she could have used. What was Vanessa supposed to say? "I love how you treat me so horridly."..? By the way, I think Rachel was a great Bachelorette and came off very classy. ✌

  2. So a man leaves the scene of a crime that he caused, which killed someone and he isn't in prison? Its nice to have money and get away with manslaughter. Which I say is murder because he didn't even call for help or stay to make sure the man was find. Class privilege at it's finest.

  3. Quiet a few deaths that they never have addressed. Excessive drinking never was an issue? Trashy show and shitty video.

  4. Bekah is beautiful and needs to grow her hair out besides the fact she's too young and needs too live her life!

  5. My GOD, he left the scene of an accident, where a man died:( Chris should have gone to jail!!! JUSTICE? NOT!!!

  6. Oh my goodness really? It doesn’t make someone a racist for calling another person a bully lol I thought the so called comments were going to be so much worse

  7. "she strung me along, and was talking to another guy the whole time"… he went weeks where this was the case on live tv. that is literally the premise of the bachelor. but on a serious note, it sucks that she cheated

  8. …. is bully a slur or something? Maybe she just thought you were a bitch, rachel. I don't even think rachel is a bitch but it isn't necessarily racist unless im totally missing something here

  9. Here's another scandal: Bekah Martinez is an anti-vaxxer. She just had a baby and doesn't plan to vaccinate her daughter.

  10. Bekah's grandmother is a family friend of mine, so I've talked to her a bit, and she's pretty different than she is on TV. TV Editing is op fam

  11. Bekah, never suit Arie for any reason… too childish and looked how successful Arie n Lauren now… married n sooner become daddy n mummy…

  12. I don't like how they act they get over some one so quickly that they thought they could marry… that dumps them

  13. I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s because I’ve seen enough of Josh Murray’s personality, but there is something so effing ugly about that dude. I did not get how women would immediately fawn over him. He looks like the great value version of someone much better looking. Don’t know who, but it’s someone.

  14. I didn't watch Arie's season, but that DM was nothing… it wasnt inappropriate at all. Some people are comfortable with being friends with exes. That doesn't make them immature or cheaters.

  15. Screw that last story. That is absolutely insane that they made it sound like that girl said something racist and horrible, when all she did was call her a bully and say she used aggressive tones with her? You don't get a freebie to be a bully without being called out on it just because you're black. Sorry. That's not how life works.

  16. The way Rachel behaved in After the Rose when she was the bachelorette I wouldn’t be surprised if she was a bully.

  17. Someone (I won't say who) from Brad's second season told me on Twitter that Emily did not cheat on Jef. She didn't say but it sounds like it may have been the other way around. It obviously sounds like his family and ex helped him cover it up by speaking to the tabloids. I liked Jef but maybe he was the villain all along.

  18. How is arie the bad guy in the bekah thing? He messaged her with a friendly message or was their any flirty ones. Based on the video the dm was harmless.

  19. Bachelor producers uncomfortable with seeing two people have sex. Oh please. Now you raise the moral standard.

  20. I just dont get why american black people always needs to the jump to other people being racist when they are called out for their attitudes.

  21. Exactly why this show is a joke. No one stays together and every chick gets the same awful, ugly cookie cutter ring. 🤮 It’s just a venue for the prettiest, the richest and those who can cause the most drama to boost ratings.

  22. Omg all these people have issues. Everyone has something they’re dealing with but their narcissism thinks their shit is the most dramatic

  23. Wait so if Rachel was a bully then suddenly that’s bc it’s a black thing? Gtfo. I’m not white and I can claim to be black but I’m mixed. It’s unfair and it happens a lot that when a person is calling out a person of color for being what they are acting, then it’s bc they are racist. So if she was bullying she negates that with- oh, it’s derogatory bc I’m a strong black woman- but what if she was just being a bully!!!!

  24. i liked claire with the Canadian i wonder what happened.

    Chris Soules… abc paid off the family im sure plus the obvious white privilege…I cant believe he went home to sober up before the police got him… wow!

  25. What was that thing Juan Pablo said all the time? Andi finally blew up at him for saying it. Oh Oh!! Was it …. "Izzz Okay!"?

  26. Rachel Lindsay got married to the guy she picked!!!! OMG!!! Hannah and her pick, Jed Wyatt broke up before the show finished airing. Becca Kufrin is still together with guy she picked, unbelievable!! JoJo still together with Aaron Rodgers' brother. Kaitlyn and guy she picked broke up, big surprise. Have you seen her recently? Woof!!! So Bachelorettes still have 6 out of 15 together.

  27. I think Lauren needs to stop fucking around on the bachelor and just learn to take care of her fucking kids Jesus Christ those poor kids

  28. There were also rumours that Chris Soules was cheating on Whitney with his dancing with the stars co star ..also named Whitney.

  29. 90% of this is one sided. Just what their fav Bachelor person said what happened. Where is the rebuttal? Pls. This DLo/Rachel/vanessa bully is bullshit. How is that derogatory?

  30. It would be lady-like if you women would use Kleenex to dry your tears instead of fingering the face. Please use kleenex when you cry. It be more lady-like and feminine that way.
