Awkward alert!

NBC's new reality hit Ready for Love, hosted by Giuliana and Bill Rancic, premiered just this week and it already has the Twitterverse buzzing.

Why? Because one of the series' bachelors, Plain White T's rocker Tim Lopez, knew one of his potential dates. In fact, he's known her for over six years!

When grilled about their past, Leah was pretty vague, leading viewers to question whether or not the duo had hooked up. (She was sent home later in the episode.)

Well, you no longer have to speculate, as Tim dished to Giuliana on E! News tonight to officially set the record straight on his past with Leah! Plus, he reveals to Giuliana if he's currently in love...

"Leah was an ex of one of my best friends, so that already made things a little bit awkward. I know for a fact that he was over it and moved on and in a new relationship," he explained.

"Over the past five years we've had like two drunken makeouts or something, which I'm not super proud of—not me at my best," Tim revealed. "[We were] never in a relationship. To be honest I knew that she was interested already. She would text me like crazy and sometimes those texts would go unanswered, so I kind of figured [she was the] last person to show up on something like this. So when she was announced on the show I was really kind of lost for a second."

So what did Tim's bandmates think of his reality-TV debut? And did Tim find love on the show? Watch Giuliana's interview with him above to find out!

Ready for Love airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC. (E! Online is a member of the NBCUniversal family.)
