It's the Bachelor in Paradise scandal no one saw coming.
On the Season 5 finale of this ABC reality series, Jordan Kimball got down on one knee and proposed to Jenna Cooper… and she said yes!
Not so fast.
Around the same exact time this proposal aired, a handful of text messages went viral that Bachelor guru Reality Steve alleges were sent back and forth between Jenna and her actual boyfriend/lover this summer.
It certainly appears as if Cooper was sleeping with someone else while she was being wooed by Jordan on the aforementioned series.
What is actually going on here? And s there any chance Jordan and Jenna still walk down the aisle next year?

6. More Jenna Bashing:
On the Bachelor in Paradise season finale Tuesday night, Jordan Kimball got down on one knee and proposed to Jenna Cooper.
It was a beautiful moment, as you can see here:
But the proposal, the acceptance, the finale and possibly the entire relationship has now been marred by an explosive allegation:
Has Jenna been cheating on Jordan?
Indeed, the same day ABC aired footage of Jordan and Jenna agreeing to marry and asking Chris Harrison to officiate their June 2019 wedding, Reality Steve shared text messages between Jenna and the man with whom she has allegedly been sleeping.
The man has his connection. He knows his stuff.
According to Steve, Jenna has been cheating on Jordan all summer with an unnamed man that she met prior to Bachelor in Paradise filming.
A professional relationship between the two, during which they teamed up for a failed business venture, eventually turned intimate.
This is an exchange Steve alleges took place just this past weekend:
In another exchange published by Steve, Jenna apologizes for her actions on an episode and tells this lover that she’s only on the show for her “business.”
There’s also this semi-graphic back and forth:
Poor Jordan, right?
This is what he told People Magazine about the depressing development:
“I’m weak in the knees and I feel like I have rocks in my stomach.”
Did Jenna actually cheat, though?
No, she tells this same publication in a statement:
“I am aware of the allegations being made against me and they are simply untrue. I am choosing to focus on my relationship right now. Thank you for respecting my privacy at this time.”
We aren’t exactly doing that.
We’re a celebrity gossip website and it’s our job to discuss allegations of this nature.
All we can do is share the information we’ve received or we’ve seen, however. We cannot verify the above text messages with 100% certainty.
Kimball says he has spoken to Cooper since this story broke — and that he believes the cheating charge to be true.
“I know my Jenna, and I read those texts and in my heart, I know it’s her,” he says, adding to People:
“She was saying she didn’t do it, but hinting towards the fact that there’s a possibility that it happened. In all reality, I don’t expect her to own it.”
Jordan also says the two were planning an engagement party next month in North Carolina. His parents were planning to attend and everything.
He can’t say for sure.
But Jordan denies all assertions that the couple faked anything for the camera (“This was not a TV romance. This was real. And whether you like me or not, I deserve love.”) and admits his universe has been rocked by this scandal:
I don’t know how to handle this. All I know is I obviously only knew a limited amount of information about Jenna. This is embarrassing and it hurts my pride. And our friendship is just tarnished.
I don’t even know what piece to pick up or how to put it back.
‘Bachelor’ and “Bachelor in Paradise” fan favorite Amanda Stanton has been arrested for domestic battery after a drunken post-bachelorette party incident with her boyfriend … TMZ has learned. Sources familiar with what went down…
The Bachelor Nation knows that Colton Underwood is the next Bachelor, and fans have some questions and concerns.
Chris Harrison has come forward to address at least some of those worries. He promises that fans will have a good time.
He shares how the show plans to tackle Colton’s virginity — and how this season’s Fantasy Suites will be very special.
At the New York premiere of A Simple Favor on Monday. September, 10, Chris Harrison told Entertainment Tonight about why they picked Colton.
“No matter what we say, if we said Jason, if we said Blake, it doesn’t matter,” Chris admits. “There’s going to be backlash, that’s the way social media works these days.”
In case you’re wondering why so many celebs keep saying problematic stuff, it’s that exact attitude and an inability to distinguish between trolls and actual feedback.
“Colton’s going to be good TV, and that is the reason we chose him,” Chris explains bluntly.
That sounds very honest.
Chris then cracks a joke that will honestly sell more viewers on Colton than anything else: “He probably won’t have his shirt on after night one, so it’s going to be a good season.”
Chris does admit that the fans aren’t sure if Colton is ready for marriage.
And, as Chris says, “that’s the whole point of the show.”
Looking for candidates for marriage is the whole point of The Bachelor franchise. Finding out if Colton is ready for it is the point of this season, we guess.
“Maybe at the end of it, he’s not, and it’s a complete disaster,” Chris says. “That’s the way it goes, that’s life”
Chris does address that the Fantasy Suite is going to be a little more intriguing since Colton has never banged before.
“Well, this year, because I know he’s the Bachelor, I brought in props,” Chris jokes.
His joke continues: “So there’s going to be a big presentation of what happens in the fantasy suite [with] 3D models.”
That sounds painfully awkward. Fortunately, to make sure that we know (we hope) that this is a joke, Chris continues.
“It really gets interesting,” Chris says. “And I’m going to bring my son in as well, who is a teenager, so I can knock out the talk.”
If you haven’t had the talk with your teen yet, they already got it from their friends. But, again, Chris is joking. We hope.
Chris does take a slightly more serious tone as he discusses the implications of Colton Underwood’s virginity.
“No, but it’s part of the storyline, the fact that Colton’s a virgin, clearly,” Chris affirms.
“How will the women react to that?” Chris asks rhetorically. “How is he going to handle that?”
That’s a good question. And, of course, we already got a taste of that narrative after the episode aired in which Colton confessed to Becca.
“It’s something that he’s obviously dealt with his entire life,” Chris reminds viewers. “And he got emotional about it.”
Chris mentions how Colton spoke “about when he was in the NFL and having to fake it.”
Actual locker room talk, for Colton, involved pretending that he’d had sexual experiences that he had not.
“So, we are going to deal with that,” Chris says. “We’ll dive into that.”
We’re sure that they will.
So we suppose that Chris Harrison’s pitch for Colton’s season is: Come for the shirtless eye candy, stay for the virginity drama.
Will it work?
For the network, it’s a gamble. Especially if someone comes forward and claims that Colton has been lying about his virgin status.
Fans have already been warned that Colton is a selfish jerk who may be more interested in fame than finding love or marriage.
Some think that, after Arie, the network should have gone with the most trustworthy, non-controversial pick that they could.
Others say that people are simply being unfair to Colton. We’ll all find out together.
Just prior to Fantasy Suite night on Bachelor in Paradise this season, at least one contestant faced her biggest nightmare.
But we’ll get to that in a moment.
Monday evening’s installment of this controversial ABC series depicted TWO couples calling it quits, although one split went far smoother than the second.
Let’s start with the amicable before we get to the ugly, shall we?
Joe and Kendall (pictured above) were seemingly in a good place when he joked about getting engaged.
At least we thought he was joking.
Perhaps there was a serious nature to the reference as well — but, either way, the mere topic caused Kendall to pump the breaks on their romance. Hard.
“There’s a part of me that obviously loves you, and I’ve known that for a while, but I don’t know what kind of love that is,” Kendall attempted to explain in response, adding that she thought thers sta were pursuing a relationship because they “had to,” not because they really wanted to.
“I’m with you all day long. I’ve been falling in love with you since day two. I haven’t been able to express it because all you’ve said is… ‘I want to keep things open,'” Joe replied, pointing to her past with Leo and John and adding:
“The truth is, you don’t know how you feel about me… you’re looking for so many excuses not to be with me.”
And, with that, Joe was basically done.
“We’re just not in the same place. That’s what I’ve been scared about this entire time… The fact that you’re not happy about where we’re at after everything is really just the answer,” he continued.
“That’s it. I’m going home. Alright, I’m leaving. Bye.”
The guy was serious, too.
He got into a limo and, like Keyser Soze, was gone.
“I have a huge fear that I’m never going to see Joe again,” Kendall lamented on air. “My heart breaks imagining not being with him. I’m going to leave feeling regret.”
Remember, now… we said this was the AMICABLE break-up.
Elsewhere, Kevin also decided to end things with Astrid.
“I’m like, having an actual mental breakdown right now,” he confessed, aiming for sympathy and earning none whatsoever.
Kevin cried about how his former experiences with fantasy suites and how the evenings didn’t pan out as he’d hoped.
“I don’t know if it’s forever,” he said of his relationship with Astrid.
“Are you breaking up with me?” Astrid asked, bursting into tears and then turning angry:
“What the actual f-ck, man? I don’t eve know what to say. I’m mind-boggled… The one thing I asked you not to do was blindside me!”
Lik Joe before her, Astrid then left to pack her things, leaving Kevin a tear-filled on the daybed.
“She’s going to hate me,” he said. “She’s going to be embarrassed. This is a nightmare.”
Finally, Bachelorette alum Robby Hayes showed up!
He tried to ask out Jenna, only to be shot down and then told off by Jordan for making a move on his woman.
“From what I understand, he cheated on Amanda Stanton … after Paradise,” Jordan told his fellow contestants. “I mean, cheating on a single mom? C’mon.”
The man makes a solid point there.
“Robby’s a tool, he’s just a tool,” Jordan added to the cameras.
“He dated Amanda for the social media following and then he broke up with her in the way that he did to look like a player. Like, ‘Oh I don’t need Amanda in my life.'”
Still, Shushanna agreed to go on a date with Robby and then confronted Hayes about the Stanton allegations prior to the rose ceremony.
He claimed he never cheated on Amanda…but did she on another ex in the past.
Shushanna ended up giving Hayes her rose during the final ceremony.
However, when the remaining couples were faced with either heading to the fantasy suites or going home, the new twosome chose to pick things up back in the United States.
“I don’t think in 48 hours that our relationship is there,” Hayes told Shushanna of having sexual intercourse. “But we’ll hang out when I’m in Utah. We can grab dinner, or I can take you on a date.”
Where will all the other relationships head to close out Season 5?
Find out when the finale of Bachelor in Paradise airs on ABC on Tuesday, September 11 at 8/7c.
Right after Labor Day, Colton Underwood was confirmed as the next Bachelor.
Some fans are very excited, but other members of the Bachelor Nation are still a little wary of him.
According to what his ex, famed Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, wrote in her book, this next season of The Bachelor could be worse than Arie’s. …
While Aly Raisman did not call out Colton by name in her book, Fierce, RadarOnline reports that she describes an unhappy encounter with a man who could only be the next Bachelor.
“A professional athlete I’d been talking to for a while had invited me to visit him and watch one of his games,” Aly wrote.
Aly said that she had taken him up on his invitation despite the travel distance because “I figured I could use a distraction.”
“Saturday went well,” she shared, speaking of the day before the game. “The guy was attentive and fun, and we seemed to be having a good time.”
Aly reveals: “But when I met him Sunday after his game, he had turned into a completely different person.”
“We were in his car when I made a move to change the radio station,” she says.
This, apparently, is when things really went south.
“‘Don’t touch the music,’ he snapped,” Aly reports.
“I thought he was joking,” Aly explains. “So I continued to reach for the stereo buttons.”
“‘I’m not kidding — don’t touch it,’ he said sharply,” she narrates.
According to her, this handsome gentleman had some very ugly reasoning for insisting that he control the radio.
She reports that he told her: “‘I just played a game, and you just sat and watched. You haven’t done anything today.'”
“‘So we’ re going to listen to this sports radio station,'” she says that he said. “‘I want to hear what they say about me.’”
“I sat silently for the rest of the car ride,” Aly reveals. “I couldn’t wait to get out.”
We can imagine.
“I felt embarrassed,” after the incident, Aly admits.
“But,” she adds, she felt “also angry that I had traveled to see someone who treated me so disrespectfully.”
No one has the right to speak to anyone in the way that she describes. Apparently, the rest of the day didn’t really improve upon her experience.
“He was glued to his phone and ignored me as we sat and ate dinner,” she reveals.
Phone use is a normal part of life, but if someone flies out to see you for a weekend, maybe be less of a jerk.
“When I left for the airport,” Aly shared. “He hardly said good-bye.”
Speaking of this man — whom many believe to have been Colton — reminds us of Raven Gates’ words of warning.
“I just don’t think his intentions are good,” Raven told Tia Booth on Bachelor in Paradise.
“First of all, Colton’s past dating history has been the It Girl,” Raven reasoned. “You’re the It Girl from your season, and he reached out to you.”
“And then he went on Becca’s season, and now he’s back with you,” Raven pointed out. “All of his actions have said something different…”
Raven implored Tia: “You have to really see the true person that Colton is.”
That’s a fair point. People might have a hard time seeing past Colton Underwood’s virginity and his smile and his general handsomeness.
Just because a guy’s clearly not just out to get in your pants doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have an agenda.
If Raven is right, then Colton just gravitates towards the most popular girl around and uses her like an accessory to promote himself.
If Aly was really talking about Colton in her book, then it sounds like he has some major entitlement issues and can be a selfish jerk sometimes.
Besides, if the Bachelor Nation is right about Colton not really being a virgin, then he might also be a huge liar.
What are we getting ourselves into with this next season?
On Tuesday, Colton Underwood was confirmed as the next Bachelor!
Some fans are absolutely thrilled and would love a shot at dating this hunk. Others favored other frontrunners … frontrunners like Jason Tartick.
Jason is sharing how he really feels about Colton being selected for this coveted role.
Jason Tartick took to Instagram to reveal his thoughts about Colton becoming the next leading man on The Bachelor.
“To have great friends you have to be a great friend,” Jason’s post begins.
Jason’s post continues: ‘@coltonunderwood is a class act, generous man, and a hell of friend.”
“So happy for you brotha!” Jason declares.
Jason makes his enthusiasm clear, concluding with: “Let the Bachelor Party Planning commence!”
That is not all that Jason had to say on the subject, however.
In an interview with E!, Jason Tartick expresses his thoughts on Colton’s big win.
“Colton is like a brother to me,” Jason says.
He says that they bonded on The Bachelorette, sharing: “We were in the limo night one and we hit it off.”
“He’s just a really good guy and we became really good friends,” Jason gushes.
“We supported each other through the journey,” Jason reveals. “And it’s not always the easiest journey.”
He says that the two of them forged a powerful friendship and remain close “still to this day.”
Jason is over the moon that he gets to watch his buddy try to find love.
“I’m very happy for him and his journey to find happiness,” Jason says.
It sounds like he’ll be tuning in for sure.
Jason is excited, saying: “I think he’s going to do a great job as the Bachelor.”
That said, Jason would have loved to be the leading man himself.
“This was an opportunity I would’ve liked to have had,” Jason admits.
He says that he’d leap at the chance “simply because I wasn’t sure that it would work the first time around.”
“But,” he notes. “I did find love in a place I really wasn’t certain I could.”
The Bachelorette made him realize that this format could lead to real romance. Maybe he’ll get his chance to be the leading man … some day.
Jason sounds almost wistful as he talks about what could have been.
“I was so open to giving The Bachelor an opportunity [for me] to find that person,” he admits.
He says: “I thought that it would put me in the best position to find my person, my one.”
Well, he’s immensely popular, so it sounds like he might get his wish in the future.
If not, we’re sure that he has a great chance of finding love off-screen, too.
Especially since he has such a great, healthy attitude about his buddy Colton getting this coveted title. Good for them both, you know?
