Bachelorette Emergency! Producers Had To Call ‘Backup Contestants’ 2 Weeks Into Filming — WTF Is Going On!?



Like all things in 2020, it appears the newest season of The Bachelorette is cursed! But what’s going on??

After months of production delays and a fan-demanded recasting of suitors, it appears producers made a big move after the first two weeks of filming began for Clare Crawley’s season: they reached out to “backup” contestants!

That’s right, Perezcious readers. For reasons unknown, Bachelor Nation producers reportedly contacted several men who were not initially cast to film the current season “out of the blue,” according to an Us Weekly source, suggesting that something had gone FULLY awry during filming.

The insider explained:

“Last weekend, producers reached out to backup Bachelorette contestants who had been vetted for Clare’s season but were ultimately not cast to film at La Quinta [Resort]. When producers reached back out, out of the blue, it was very apparent that something had happened with production.”


There have already been quite a few hurdles for production on the upcoming season. After shooting was put on hold indefinitely due to health and safety concerns, ABC revealed that Crawley would embark on her made-for-TV love journey in a single quarantined location amid the coronavirus pandemic. Robert Mills, VP of Alternative Series at ABC, explained in late June on On Air With Ryan Seacrest:

“We’re going to be in one location and everyone will be tested [for coronavirus] the week before. Maybe there’s some travel, maybe it’s just domestic, maybe it’s by bus. We’ll see. If things aren’t that safe, we’ll shoot it the same way where everybody is safe, they’re tested, they’re quarantined, and then you can have kissing and arguing and everything else.”

There was also some drama when the rose-seekers were originally announced: many fans expressed frustrations with the younger crowd that was chosen to compete for the 39-year-old hairstylist’s heart, so production swapped out some of the first group with a slightly older batch, 20 of whom are aged 30 or older. 

But it appears another unknown issue has now come up. The source explained that the signs “obviously” pointed to something going wrong on set when the production team started “calling backup contestants and asking them to come to La Quinta within 24 hours.”

WITHIN 24 HOURS?? That’s a hunk emergency!

So… what the actual f**k is going on!?

Was there a fight between contestants? A fight between a contestant and producer? A COVID-19 outbreak? Did Garrett Yrigoyen show up and make everyone want to leave? Our minds are racing with theories. 

We guess we’ll find out more deets as they come out. Until then… what do U think is going on over at the La Quinta Resort, Perezcious readers?

Video shows ‘Burger King Kevin’ slapping fast-food employee



A recent viral video showed a man dubbed “Burger King Kevin” slapping a Burger King employee. The incident resulted in the man’s arrest, TMZ reported.

Cops said that man, a customer named Austin Addison, was charged with harassment, disorderly conduct, and criminal mischief.

The video shows that prior to the slap, Addison yells at the employee and the employee tells him he is on camera.

“Can’t fucking count but for robbery and stealing stuff,” Addison yells. “She needs to get the fuck out here before I get her put in jail for the rest of her life.”

TMZ initially reported that the incident began because Addison was short on chicken nuggets but later clarified that Addison walked into Burger King looking for an employee he knew. The video began after he threw his keys, and a witness tried to calm him down. 

Fox News reported that Addison went on a “racist rant,” but according to the witness TMZ spoke to, this was not the case. 

The video was posted on Twitter on Aug. 3. According to court records, the incident took place on June 26 in Pennsylvania, and Addison was arrested on July 30.

Burger King told the Daily Dot in an emailed statement that the team member who was slapped was not seriously injured.

“We are deeply disturbed by the behavior displayed in this video,” the statement said. “Burger King takes the safety and fair treatment of team members and guests very seriously and we do not tolerate or condone violence of any kind in our restaurants.”

Addison’s social media accounts are no longer visible, but according to screenshots online, he was a cashier at Harbor Freight Tools. Heavy reported that Addison was no longer employed at the company at the time of the Burger King incident.
