Bachelorette's Jed Wyatt Claims He was "Highly Manipulated" By the Show
Jed Wyatt went to his Instagram Story to share his thoughts on The Bachelorette after his former co-star Dylan Barbour defended him on social media.
Jed, who got Hannah Brown’s final rose during her finale in July 2019, took to his Instagram Story to express his thanks to Dylan for having tweeted that Jed was “screwed over by production.”
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the love and the support today. It was really cool that this got brought to light by Dylan.” - Jed Wyatt
Jed said that he would reveal further details on the whole situation on the Tuesday, February 2 episode of his podcast, Jed Talks. Following that, he also brought a second assertion to the point that he had not cheated on Hannah with singer Haley Stevens or anyone else for that matter.
“I will actually be going into deeper detail. But the facts are this, that yes, I was highly manipulated and from it deeply mentally affected from the show. And two, no, I never cheated, ever, on Haley or Hannah.”
On January 30, Dylan conducted a lengthy Q&A on Twitter, starting the thread with, “Cancel ABC and The Bachelor. Kinda wanna air out their dirty laundry mom got me riled up.”
It was when a follower asked Dylan, “Who from your season do you feel got the most screwed over by production?” that he replied, “Jed.” Another person asked, “Are you saying he didn’t cheat on Hannah?” to which Dylan responded with a simple “Yes.”
Going back to the beginning, Hannah accepted Jed’s marriage proposal on her The Bachelorette season 15 finale, but viewers found out on the After the Finale Rose, that the engagement had been called off.
Following the finale, Jed told Hannah that he had dated Haley until a week before the filming of the show, but that the relationship wasn’t serious and was over.
At that time, Hannah said that she had read an interview with Haley that didn’t match Jed’s story so she didn’t give him another chance.
