'Bachelorette' Reject

My 'Surprise' Appearance Was Actually Scripted

The dude who tried to crash "The Bachelorette" house on Monday's episode says the show made it seem like he was some sort of stalker ... but his "surprise" appearance was all the producers' idea.

Chris Bukowski tells TMZ, "They made it seem like they didn't know I was coming, but they knew."

If you didn't see it, Bukowski -- a contestant from Season 8 of "The Bachelorette" --  showed up at the house uninvited ... hoping for a shot at dating Andi Dorfman.  When he got there he plead his case to producers and security ... who eventually carted him away.

Bukowski now tells us ... the whole thing was a set up. He wanted to be on the show but he applied too late ... and the producers concocted the idea of showing up unannounced.

Chris says they even suggested a romantic touch -- a bouquet of roses.

Check out the video ... he still seems pretty creepy.

This guy is disgusting. Sending an email saying you'll do whatever it takes to date Andi, does not constitute knowledge that you'd try to crash the party. Ultimately she knew who he was and choose not to see him.

He is delusional and just needs to fade into the background...set up or not.

Yes all reality shows are fake and scripted. Many shows cross the line when prizes and cash are paid out. Those shows have to follow strict rules and laws. They are treated more like game shows. Big Brother is reality game show and many times producers can play tricks by how they edit a show if a public vote is part of the show if a contestant stays or leaves during the course of the show. A favorable edit to a contestant they prefer can occur. I would be curious if this guy was paid by the show to do this and if any of the other bachelors are paid. Either way it makes him look like a creepy stocker so he should had known better to do something like this. I would like to know if a ring is part of a prize and if the winning couple gets a payout. Trips for the winner is considered a prize and the contestants have to pay taxes on the prize they win.

When Eric Hill, the adventurist Bachelorette contestant, died while paragliding, the first thing the producers said was, "Wait a minute, that's not in the script."

Yeah, because a television show where dozens of men and women all vie for the affections of some bozo they never knew as if that person is a prize of some kind is not creepy in and of itself.

DUH. Of course the producers set this up. This loser willingly took the bait they put out and pulled this stunt because he thought it would get him on the show as a contestant. Now that he looks pathetic and creepy, he's playing it off as a scripted plot line.
