According to Bachelor alum Jade Roper, not all of the contestants who signed up for JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette did so for love. On Wednesday, Jade, who competed on Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor and then went on the spin-off Bachelor in Paradise, shockingly revealed that one of the men from JoJo’s season is trying to pay her and her husband, Tanner Tolbert, to promote him on Instagram, with the end goal of obtaining more Instagram followers.
Jade added that it seems as if the offer is real, which means that the guy was on the show for the wrong reasons. Jade did not say whether the contestant is one viewers have already seen sent home or who is still being shown vying for JoJo’s heart.
Several people told Jade to expose the man who joined the show for fame and riches rather than love. Others gave guesses as to who the guilty person is. So far, the names that have come up most are Jordan Rodgers, Chad Johnson, Alex Woytkiw, and Robby Hayes.
Whoever the man is, he apparently has contacted several of the franchise’s alums. JJ Lane, who was on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette and then went on the same season of Bachelor in Paradise as Jade and Tanner, tweeted that the person gave him the same offer.
Chad, who became this season’s biggest villain so far due to his odd and threatening behavior and seemingly big ego, denied that he’s the person trying to pay for more Instagram followers. He asked Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert to tell him who the person is so that he can have some ammunition to go after that person.
Chad was sent home after Alex, during their two-on-one date with JoJo, told JoJo that Chad threatened Jordan. Prior to the date, Chad told Jordan, in front of the other guys, that he can find him after the show. When Jordan asked Chad if what Alex told her was true, he didn’t deny it. Chad defended himself by saying that the other guys push him to such behavior.
JoJo was already wondering about Chad after some of the other guys warned her about Chad’s behavior. She was told by one of the guys that there was security at the mansion because of Chad and she also witnessed Chad have a brief altercation with Evan Bass during a group date. Confronted with what Alex told her, JoJo finally told Chad that his behavior was unacceptable and sent him home.
Chad Johnson didn’t go quietly. As Alex Woytkiw and JoJo Fletcher finished their date, Chad showed up unexpectedly at the vacation house the guys were staying in. He criticized the men for treating him unfairly. Chad had a particularly tense goodbye with Jordan Rodgers, whom he accused of going after him from day one. Jordan remained calm even when Chad tapped him on the head and gripped his hand strongly during their handshake.
Could the guy offering money for Instagram promotion really be Jordan, considered by many to be JoJo’s front-runner? On Wednesday, Us Weekly reported that several sources have come out saying that Jordan joined the show in pursuit of fame.
“He knew football wasn’t going to work out and he wants to be famous desperately,” said one source.
“Originally, Jordan wanted to go on The Bachelorette to become the Bachelor. That was his goal,” said another, cited as one of Jordan’s friends.
Yet the friend added that Jordan, while he joined the show for fame, really did fall for JoJo during the process.
“In the beginning, yes, Jordan went on the show for his career. But then it 100 percent switched. He was really into JoJo. He definitely fell in love with her.”
About five weeks ago, Brittany Farrar, one of Jordan’s exes, called him out as a cheater who always wanted fame.
On a recent episode of The Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher, during a date with Jordan, told him that she ran into one of his ex-girlfriends, who had some unflattering things to say about Jordan. JoJo said that the ex told her that Jordan was a terrible boyfriend. Jordan admitted that he was a terrible boyfriend at that time because he was so focused on football. When JoJo asked him if there was any cheating, he denied that he was a cheater.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Jordan Rodgers also recently defended himself against the accusation that he has active dating profile on a dating app.
According to Bachelor spoiler blogger Reality Steve, however, the guilty man is Robby Hayes. Tellingly, both Jade Roper’s husband, Tanner Tolbert, and another franchise alum, Nick Viall, liked Reality Steve’s tweet.
