Jillian Harris had Wes. Jake Pavelka had Rozlyn. Ali Fedotowsky has—Justin?!
Yes, tubers, word on the street is that the pro-wrestler-turned-house-pariah is the lucky fella delivering all the scandalous funtimes on The Bachelorette this season. Of course, we did what any self-respecting journalists would do—ran straight to Ali and Mr. Rose Master himself Chris Harrison for the 411 on tonight's twist. Heads up...
Rumors surrounding Justin began with the guru of all things Bachelor and Bachelorette, spoiler hound Reality Steve, revealed the injured softie to be—dun, dun, dun—a lady-juggling lothario!
Ali weighed in on the rumors while chatting with our very own Ryan Seacrest this morning, saying: "Up to this point, Justin has had a hard time in the house, but in tonight's episode you're going to see he might be playing a little bit."
Vague, but still a good tease. When we caught up with the Bachelorette a few weeks ago, she did tell us that if the scandal rumors are true (which they so are!), she'd like to think she handled it well.
"What would I do if I found that out?," she said, "I would confront him for sure." Still, she urged us to stay tuned for the real story behind the Justin mess. "People can say whatever they feel like, but you have no idea what really went down until you see it."
And see it, we will.
Show host, and all-around good guy, Chris avoided addressing the rumors specifically, and opted instead to comment on the massive surge of interest in his little ol' show.
"I sit back and I'm like, 'At what point did we become news?'" he mused. "It used to be we begged people to talk about us and watch, and we'd create a couple and hope they got some coverage in the press. Now we're on every blog. It's phenomenal."
It's such a phenomenon, we just can't stop tuning into the trainwreck that can sometimes be The Bachelorette.
Will you be watching tonight? Did you know Justin had some secrets up his sleeve? Send your well wishes to Ali in the comments below, and tune into the show tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
