'Bachelorette' Star Colton 'I'm a Virgin' ... Chose Football Over Sex

7/10/2018 7:55 AM PDT
Breaking News

Here's a bombshell revelation from "The Bachelorette" ... the guy who had a cup of coffee with a couple of NFL teams says he's still a virgin -- and blames football.  

Colton Underwood -- a former tight end who spent some time on practice squads with the Chargers, Raiders and Eagles -- decided to share his secret with Becca on Monday night's episode. 

It did not go great ... 

"I haven't had that many girlfriends or that many dates because of sports," Colton said ... "I spent a lot of time working on football Colton and I sorta forgot who personal Colton is."

"And because of that I still am, I am a virgin," the 26-year-old admitted. 

So, how'd Becca handle the news? She wasn't thrilled ... and excused herself from their dinner date to think about if she wants to spend the rest of her life with a guy who still has a V card. 

Spoiler Alert: Colton got a rose anyway ... 

Congrats Colt.

EXCLUSIVE

Connor Obrochta from "The Bachelorette" wants his fellow contestant Lincoln Adim's attention ... so he can tell him to stay the hell away from Becca Kufrin and the rest of her suitors when they reunite for the 'Tell All' episode.

We spoke to Connor and it's crystal clear the fitness coach from Florida was never a fan of Lincoln (they had a spat early in the season) and especially now that Lincoln's dark past has surfaced.

As we reported ... Lincoln was charged with indecent assault and battery a week before the premiere, after allegedly groping a woman's breasts and grinding up on her aboard a ship.

Connor says hearing about Lincoln's dirty laundry rubbed him the wrong way. Check it out ... Connor says Lincoln's gonna get his ass handed to him if he decides to show up to the 'Tell All' episode, which hasn't filmed yet.

Robby Hayes on Lincoln Adim 'The Bachelorette' Asks About Arrests ... How Did They Miss This?

6/14/2018 7:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

JoJo Fletcher's runner-up on her season of "The Bachelorette" can't figure out how Lincoln Adim got on the show, because the screening process probes for past crimes.

We got Robby Hayes Wednesday in Venice and asked if 'Bachelorette' producers need to do better background checks on their contestants ... in light of the fact Adim's sex crime arrest 2 years ago didn't raise any flags.

As we reported ... Adim had been convicted of and sentenced for indecent assault and battery days before Becca Kufrin's season premiered in May. He'd been accused of groping and grinding on a woman during a 2016 cruise. He must now register as a sex offender.

Robby is dumbfounded on how Lincoln slipped through the cracks. He's been through the process, and told us the pointed questions every contestant has to answer ... including the ones about arrests. He says Becca deserved to know about Lincoln and producers need to tighten up the background checks.

We broke the story ... Warner Bros., the studio behind the show, says Lincoln lied through his teeth, and the company that runs background checks missed his arrest.

'Bachelorette' Producers Say Lincoln Adim Lied About Assault & Battery

6/13/2018 4:42 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelorette' contestant Lincoln Adim pulled the wool over the eyes of producers during background checks for the show ... according to Warner Bros.

The studio behind the reality show just released a statement about Adim, who, as we reported earlier, was convicted last month of indecent assault and battery on a woman. However, he'd been arrested for the incident way back in May 2016.

WB says, "No one on the 'Bachelorette' production had any knowledge about the incident or charges when Lincoln Adim was cast, and he himself denied ever having engaged in or been charged with any sexual misconduct."

The statement continues, "We employ a well- respected and highly experienced third party who has done thousands of background checks consistent with industry standards to do a nationwide background check in this case. The report we received did not reference any incident or charge relating to the recent conviction - or any other charges relating to sexual misconduct."

"We are currently investigating why the report did not contain this information."

Becca Kufrin has not yet eliminated Adim from the show as it airs.

'The Bachelorette' Contestant Lincoln Adim Convicted Indecent Assault and Battery

6/13/2018 1:01 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

1:36 PM PT -- A law enforcement source tells us ... during the alleged incident, Lincoln grabbed the woman's hands and placed them on his own chest and stomach. We're told he then allegedly groped her breasts and grinded up on the woman. It all happened on a ship called Spirit of Boston.

A contestant on the new season of "The Bachelorette" -- who's still in contention -- became a convicted criminal charged with a sex crime just a week before the premiere.

Law enforcement sources in Suffolk County, NY tell TMZ Lincoln Adim was convicted of indecent assault and battery on May 21 from an incident that occurred in 2016. Adim was accused of groping and assaulting a woman on a cruise that year.

Crazy enough, his sentence was handed down right before the new season aired on May 28. Adim was sentenced to a year behind bars, with that term being suspended for a two-year probationary period. He also has to stay away from the victim, and attend 3 AA meetings per week for those 2 years.

If he doesn't comply with the judge's terms, he'd have to serve out a year in jail. If he does ... he can avoid that. Oh, and he's also expected to register as a sex offender.

Adim has not been eliminated 3 weeks into the reality show. He's still among the remaining men and vying for Becca Kufrin's hand in marriage ... no biggie, right?

5/31/2018 7:00 PM PDT

'Bachelorette' contestant Garrett -- the suitor who got Becca's first impression rose on Monday's season premiere -- is the latest to jump on the apology train this week ... in his case, for liking bigoted memes.

Garrett Yrigoyen spoke up Thursday evening after coming under fire when it was discovered he liked Instagram posts mocking transgender people, Parkland shooting survivors and immigrants ... then deleting his account.

Garrett owned up to it -- via a new Instagram account -- saying ... "I am sorry to those who I offended, and I also take full responsibility for my ‘likes’ on Instagram that were hurtful and offensive."

He also explains why he started a new account, adding ... "I decided to take it down and start fresh because I have learned an extremely valuable lesson and am taking steps to grow, become more educated, and be a better version of myself. I am not perfect, and I will never be anywhere close, but now I will always be more informed and aware of what I am liking and supporting, not just on Instagram, but in life.”

We broke the story ... Garrett APPEARS to be the guy Becca picks in the finale -- based on photos we obtained of them filming it -- but when we saw Becca out this week ... she didn't seem too concerned about his controversy.

Garrett, who also appears to be the guy Becca picks in the finale, deleted his Instagram account after the posts were published on several blogs.

Olivia Munn On Aaron Rodgers' Family Drama 'Neither Side Is Clean'

5/23/2018 12:00 PM PDT
Breaking News

When it comes to the drama between Aaron Rodgers and his family, Olivia Munn says ... "I don't think either side of the road is clean."

Aaron's ex-girlfriend -- who RARELY speaks about the Packers QB -- opened up Wednesday on "Andy Cohen Live" ... and addressed the rumors that SHE was the cause of the rift between Aaron and his parents and brothers.

Remember, there was that famous scene on "The Bachelorette" (starring Aaron's brother, Jordan) when the family had an empty chair at the dinner table to symbolize Aaron's absence.

Munn says the truth is ... Aaron had stopped talking to his family about 8 months before they started dating in 2014 and she was the one who tried to convince him to reconcile!

"On my last day when I was filming 'The Newsroom,' I spent the day in my trailer just encouraging him to, like, have an honest conversation with your parents."

Munn suggested there were jealously issues with Aaron's father and brothers -- who each had dreams of sports success -- and it created a complicated family dynamic. 

"I don't think either side of the road is clean," Munn said ... "But, I do think it’s NOT okay when you try to stand on someone’s shoulders and then throw dirt in their face, which is what I think they did with him."

Munn and Rodgers called it quits about a year ago and Olivia says they no longer keep in touch.

Rodgers is now dating Danica Patrick.

EXCLUSIVE

"The Bachelorette" star Becca Kufrin let a big cat out of the bag Tuesday afternoon when she was spotted shooting for the show in the hometown of one of her hopeful suitors.

This is where we tell ya ... SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT!!!!

Yes, you've seen the pic, but if you don't wanna know what happened with the lucky guy, look away now.

We'll say this ... Becca looked real cozy strolling through the streets of Manteca, CA with him.

His name is Garrett Yrigoyen, and if he's made it all the way to a hometown date, she's gotta be into him. The show always tags along when the 'Bachelorette' goes to her 4 finalists' hometowns. 

We're told cameras were following as the couple strolled through downtown and hit up the history museum and even met the mayor -- so, it wasn't much of a secret around town. There was even a welcome sign for them hanging at the local Transit Center. 

The show won't air 'til later this year, and ABC hasn't officially announced all the contestants, yet, so ... clearly, Garrett is one to watch.
