In times when reality dating shows like the Bachelor and Bachelorette are seen as opportunities to boost your career rather than to find true love, a lot of contestants show up with more-than-a-little shady pasts. On the last season of the Bachelorette, Hannah Brown found that her final rose pick, Jed Wyatt, had a girlfriend back home, and only came on the show to boost his music career.
And Jed wasn’t the first to hide things from the woman he was trying to woo.
On Season 14 of the Bachelorette, contestant Lincoln Adim was still battling charges for indecent assault and battery, and a ruling wasn’t decided on until the season was already airing. Luckily, Adim was not picked as Becca’s final rose recipient.
Recently, Adim got a new deal in the case after a technicality.
