The Bachelors is rocked by scandal as TWO women are accused of being paid actors: ‘There are no other alternatives’
A former Bachelor star has accused two of the contestants on this year’s season of being ‘paid actors’ hired to stir up drama in the mansion.
Laura O’Loughlin, who was one of Jimmy Nicholson’s women on the 2021 season, is convinced Jessica Navin and Tash Candyce being studio ‘plants’.
She said the big giveaway is the fact Jessica and Tash’s full names are used on the show, whereas the other girls are referred to by the first names only.

‘There are no other alternatives to me for why their full names are being used when referring to them,’ Laura told her Instagram followers.
‘When the girls and guys refer to them, they say their full names. There’s no other Jess and Tash,’ she added.
‘It feels like their full name being used was part of their “actor contract” to gain notoriety. It feels like this is all staged for drama.’
However, one of the current stars of The Bachelors has denied this.

Krystal Thomas said there was a more logical reason why the two were referred to by their full names – and it has nothing to do with an ‘actor contract’.
‘In the first week Jessica just one day said, “Oh you guys should start calling me Jessica Navin,”‘ she told Yahoo Lifestyle.
‘We realised she’s just plugging her name so she can get publicity! It’s a publicity stunt from both of them,’ she added.
‘There are no other alternatives to me for why their full names are being used when referring to them,’ she said
Laura was famously dumped by Jimmy Nicholson after they failed to reach first base during their single date on the 2021 season.
A source told Daily Mail Australia at the time: ‘Laura was especially heartbroken because he made some stupid excuse like, “I’m not going to kiss you; I’ve been kissing too many girls and my family is not happy.”‘
According to the insider, she felt Jimmy wasn’t being honest with her because she was the only contestant not to get a kiss after landing a single date.
‘She felt like she was just there for the comedic value of the show and Jimmy didn’t care about her at all. It was sad,’ they said.
