'Bachelorette' Reject Luke P. Show Unfairly Made Me Look Like I Slut Shamed Hannah B.

Exclusive

'Bachelorette' reject Luke P. feels used by the show and Hannah B., because we're told viewers did NOT hear a conversation that ultimately sent Luke reeling ... which led to him calling her out and allegedly slut shaming her.

Luke was dumbfounded after Hannah B. told him she had sex with another guy in the Fantasy Suite. He squarely showed disapproval, implying she wasn't the right kind of woman for him.

Folks in Luke's world tell TMZ ... he was reacting to a conversation he had with Hannah B. at a bible study during the Hometown episode, where she suggested to him she wasn't open to having sex in the fantasy suites. We're told her comment was on Luke's mind when she blurted out she indeed had sex, and that's why he reacted the way he did on camera.

We're told Luke is upset producers did not air the full bible study convo, which would have put his comments on Monday night's show in context. He comes off as a heel.

Our Luke sources say he's had hell to pay in the last 16 hours ... he and his family are getting skewered on social media and his Christian faith is being weaponized against him.

Luke, meanwhile, has already filmed the 'Tell-All' episode, and we're told it didn't go well ... with Hannah and the other guys ganging up on him. That said, our sources say he's been met with love and support from his local community ... and he's moving on.

We reached out to ABC regarding the unaired moment ... they had no comment.

Colton Underwood Kelly Ripa's Really Out of Touch ... With 'Bachelor' Criticism

EXCLUSIVE
GET WITH THE TIMES
TMZ.com

Colton Underwood thinks Kelly Ripa is too far removed from modern-day dating to understand "The Bachelor" ... and her criticism proves just how out of touch she really is.

We got this year's Bachelor couple, Colton and Cassie Randolph, Thursday at LAX and got their response to Kelly's comments from earlier this week, when she ripped the show as creepy and insisted the idea of dozens of women fighting over one guy is disgusting.

CAN'T DO CREEPY
LIVE WITH KELLY AND RYAN

As 2 people with a unique perspective, Colton and Cassie tell us Kelly's critique is way off ... and they feel she just doesn't understand how dating works for younger generations growing up with Tinder and other dating apps.

Colton says the 'Bachelor' is just like Tinder, only it's on national TV ... and he thinks Kelly just doesn't know what it's like to have countless dating options.

Kelly's been married to Mark Consuelos since 1996 ... so she ain't swiping left or right.

Check out our clip ... Colton reminds Kelly it's 2019, so she needs to keep an open mind.

'Bachelor' Finalist Hannah G Slams Kelly Ripa for Bach Diss ... But I Still Love Her!!!

EXCLUSIVE
HOW RUDE
TMZ.com

Kelly Ripa has no idea what the hell she's talking about when it comes to "The Bachelor" and her take on it is downright rude -- at least it was to Hannah Godwin, who was a finalist just last season.

We got Hannah Wednesday night at Craig's in WeHo and got her take on what Kelly said earlier this week -- that the show is creepy and the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting for 1 "ordinary" guy is disgusting.

CAN'T DO CREEPY
LIVE WITH KELLY AND RYAN

As one of those exceptional women, Hannah G thinks it sucks that Kelly's dissing all of Bach Nation. Yes, you can tell Hannah's a bit conflicted because she loves her some Ripa ... but ultimately, she wants Kelly to know the show worked out just fine for her.

Of course, 'Bachelor' creator Mike Fleiss and 'Bachelor' host Chris Harrison have also gone on the offensive, saying, "Easy, @KellyRipa ... #TheBachelor franchise pays your salary!"

Harrison tweeted, "Look out #BachelorNation @KellyRipa is coming after you and your 'disgusting' Monday night habit." Goes without saying ... it's gotten ugly.

BTW ... current 'Bachelorette' Hannah Brown appeared on 'Kelly & Ryan' Thursday and they joked about Kelly's slam. Hannah B added, for her, doing the show is "one of the most empowering things that I ever have done."

Rumored 'Bachelorette' Hannah B's Sorority Shuts Down Producers!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Hannah B -- a front-runner to be the next 'Bachelorette' -- got a rude homecoming when her sorority denied producers a chance to shoot promos with Hannah at her alma mater.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... 'Bachelorette' producers reached out to the University of Alabama's Alpha Chi Omega chapter about shooting interior and exterior shots at the sorority house where Hannah Brown partied before graduating in 2017.

Quick SPOILER ALERT.

Hannah, who placed 7th on the current 'Bachelor' season with Colton Underwood -- is rumored to be the new 'Bachelorette' ... and the fact she's shooting promos is a big hint the rumors are true. However, there's been no official announcement.

Our sources say ΑΧΩ turned down Hannah due to security concerns. We're told there are hundreds of members on campus, and sorority officials felt the show could bring unwanted publicity and attention.

Hannah -- who, BTW, graduated magna cum laude -- was still able to shoot promos in other campus locations Friday ... including the Crimson Tide's Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Worth noting ... just because Hannah's shooting promos doesn't mean she's a lock to hand out roses. Remember what happened to Caila Quinn? She recorded promos, too, in 2016, but producers ultimately went with Jojo Fletcher.

We reached out to Alpha Chi Omega ... so far, no word back.

Kim & Khloe Kardashian Slam 'Bachelor' Creator 'Bachelorette' Claims are 'Fake F****** News!'

Kim Kardashian West blasted 'Bachelor' creator Mike Fleiss for claiming he's in talks to make Khloe the next 'Bachelorette' ... and shared texts showing he's full of it.

Kim went off on Twitter Saturday in response to Mike's earlier tweet that he'd been in contact with his "dear friend" Kris Jenner about Khloe being "The Bachelorette" next season ... by calling it "Fake f***ing news big time!!!!"

Fleiss replied saying Kim wouldn't know ... so she fired back with a screenshot of a text between her mom and her sister denying his claims.

Khloe also went after Mike with a little extra animosity and a threat, tweeting ... "I’m not f***ing clickbait right now. Stop or you will be hearing from my lawyers. How insensitive!!"

Fleiss responded by saying he's just trying to help people find true love.

As you know, Khloe is single after splitting with Tristan Thompson because he allegedly cheated on her again ... this time with Kylie's BFF Jordyn Woods.

"The Bachelor" creator's clearly looking to capitalize ... but the Kardashians aren't having it.

'Bachelor' Couple Arie & Lauren Took No Chances with Wedding Dress ... En Route to Hawaii

EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelor' stars and soon-to-be husband and wife Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham appear to be real hands-on for their wedding ... as in, not letting anyone else put their hands on her dress.

The couple were spotted a few days ago at the Kahului Airport in Hawaii with their luggage, including a white wedding dress bag. It's clear there are some items just too important to let out of their sight.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Arie and Lauren are set to get married Saturday at Haiku Mill in Maui, nearly a year after he proposed to her on the 'After the Final Rose' episode. Of course, this came after he proposed to Becca on the season finale ... but changed his mind and begged for Lauren back.

The 2 are also expecting their first child together -- a girl -- so they have more than just their nuptials to celebrate.

Congrats!

'The Bachelor' Season Premiere Colton's Virginity Top of Mind

BEATING A DEAD HORSE
ABC

As if the new 'Bachelor' didn't already know he was a virgin, his suitors (and the show at large) constantly reminded him during the season premiere ... and it got old fast.

Colton Underwood's journey got started Monday night, and as he was meeting the lovely ladies who'll be vying for his heart ...and apparently his crotch. His virginity was on the minds in the mouths of almost every girl. It was awkwardly charming at first, but quickly became a tired gag.

Even worse ... the virgin gimmicks quickly escalated from a chat to full-blown costumes just to land the joke. One girl popped a "cherry" balloon in front of Colton, another teased him with a real peach, and yet another took away his "V" card in a corny magic trick.

But, Alex D. of Boston took the cake (and the award for worst contestant thus far) by creeping out of the limo in a human-size sloth suit and lurching over to him in slow-mo ... staying committed to the whole sloth thing the entire way through.

It was cringeworthy to say the least. Fact is ... Colton's more than just his virginity -- here's hoping the producers of the show realized that before it's too late.

Colton Underwood Am I Still a Virgin? Well ...

WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW
@AdamGlyn

Colton Underwood just swerved REAL hard on the big v-question that everyone wants to know.

The 'Bachelor' star was out Tuesday in NYC and was asked about finding love and whether or not he finally lost his virginity. Colton's sex life has been a major focus of his storyline after he revealed he was still a virgin during "The Bachelorette."

Colton's season premieres next week ... and you gotta imagine just about every woman competing for him will know the 26-year-old might finally be up for getting down.

Nikki Bella No Sparks with 'Bachelorette' Star And Kiss Never Happened!!

EXCLUSIVE

If Nikki Bella's date with Peter Kraus had been filmed for "The Bachelorette," it would have ended with him strolling into an SUV without a rose. She just wasn't feeling it ... TMZ has learned.

Our production sources tell us ... while her date looked every bit like an episode of 'Bachelorette' -- which included a ride on a gondola and sipping wine -- fact is, there just weren't any sparks for her to wanna lock down a second date.

The big tell ... we're told Nikki couldn't muster the strength to pucker up and kiss Peter when he made his move. Yup, she left him hanging. We're told she freaked out and screamed "NO!!!" before pulling away.

Bottom line ... Nikki's just not ready to start dating again following her on-again, off-again relationship with John Cena.

As for why she went on the date at all? We're told Nikki's mom is a HUGE 'Bachelor' fan and suggested she give Peter a shot. The date will play out on the new season of "Total Bellas" next year.

For now, we're told Nikki will be laying low on the dating scene, and focusing on her career. Back to the drawing board, Peter.

'The Proposal' 1st Couple to Get Engaged ... Are Dunzo!!!

EXCLUSIVE
DUMPED IN PARADISE
TMZ.com

The first couple who got engaged on ABC's 'Bachelor'-spinoff, "The Proposal," have called it quits just a few months after the show premiered this summer.

Amputee police officer Mike Crowe tells TMZ that his new fiancee, Monica Villalobos, broke things off with him while they were recently on a trip to Costa Rica. The split happened just last week in the middle of their vacation -- Mike says Monica told him she didn't have feelings for him anymore.

Mike's clearly still hurting from the fresh break-up. He says not only did he put himself out there in trying to meet that special someone on TV, but notes that a ton of people have gotten emotionally invested in their journey. Plus, he says the Costa Rica trip was supposed to be in celebration of his 30th birthday ... so this doubly sucks for him.

As to whether he feels like he was set up for failure by the premise of the show -- propose to someone you've never met within an hour-long program -- Mike says no. He tells us he didn't have any expectations and didn't feel any outside pressure on the relationship. It's unclear if Monica felt the same, but he implies she might've not loved the scrutiny.

There's a potential silver lining here though. We ask if he'd be open to being cast in "The Bachelorette" if producers come calling. Let's put it this way ... he ain't saying no!

Amanda Stanton from 'Bachelor' Arrested for Domestic Violence

EXCLUSIVE

9/13 -- A rep for Amanda tells TMZ that the whole event was a misunderstanding. Amanda had a few drinks and gave Bobby what she thought was a playful shove in front of hotel security, who then called police.

The rep says "Amanda is embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department," and no hard feelings for everyone doing their jobs.

'Bachelor' and "Bachelor in Paradise" fan favorite Amanda Stanton has been arrested for domestic battery after a drunken post-bachelorette party incident with her boyfriend ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with what went down tell us Stanton was partying with friends at The Encore for a co-ed bachelorette event. We're told Stanton's bf, Bobby Jacobs, was there too ... and everyone was celebrating in a room at the hotel.

Law enforcement tells us security came to the room for a noise complaint, and Bobby was talking to the guard. We're told that's when an apparently boozed up Amanda tried to intervene, and shoved Bobby in the process.

We're told the shove was hard enough for security to call cops, who arrested Amanda for misdemeanor domestic violence. She was released Monday.

Sources close to Amanda tell us she and Bobby are still together, and they both think someone slipped something -- a drug, presumably -- into her drink.

Stanton was a fave on Ben Higgins' season of "The Bachelor" ... finishing 4th. She went on to appear on season 3 of "Bachelor in Paradise" and got engaged to Josh Murray, but things went south quickly.

We reached out to Bobby and Amanda ... so far, no word back.

Aaron Rodgers MIA At 'Bachelorette' Bro's 30th Bday

Exclusive Details

Former 'Bachelorette' star Jordan Rodgers had a big bash for his 30th birthday over the weekend -- featuring friends and family ... but NOT his famous brother, Aaron Rodgers.

The family beef is well known -- hell, they even played it up during Jordan's season on "The Bachelorette" -- but people in Aaron's life had been trying to convince him to reconcile.

Doesn't seem like it worked ... because when Jordan posted pics from his birthday bash in Bowling Green, Kentucky on Saturday -- we saw brother Luke and dad Edward but no Aaron.

One source who was there confirms to TMZ Sports Aaron did not attend.

JoJo Fletcher -- the woman Jordan proposed to on "The Bachelorette" -- was there (she's in the gold wig). So was Luke's fiancee, Aimee.

If you're wondering, the Packers had a preseason game on Thursday ... so, it would have been theoretically possible for the QB to make it.

As for the rift ... Aaron's ex-girlfriend, Olivia Munn, had previously said there were jealously issues with Aaron's father and brothers but noted, "I don't think either side of the road is clean."

Colton Underwood How's it Hangin'!!!

Famed virgin Colton Underwood failed to get engaged on TV, but he's still holding onto the ring.

The 'Bachelorette' star and ex-NFL stud hit up Venice Beach to sculpt his hot bod, which frankly already looks like a finished work to us.

Colton totally knows how to spend a summer's day at the beach ... 'cause he busted out a six pack. It's a bonus for all the folks walking on the boardwalk for sure.

Seriously, how is this man-dime STILL a virgin? Get on it, ladies.

NOT SO RUFF LIFE
TMZ.com

Colton Underwood's been united with his furry new roomie, Thor ... and the good boy's already making himself at home.

TMZ got video of the 2-year-old German Shepherd inside the 'Bachelorette' star's house Saturday ... hesitantly learning to go down the steps and meeting his new canine bro, Sniper.

The "goofball" also got to feast on some people food -- delicious rotisserie chicken.

We broke the story ... Thor was destined for the meat markets of Asia before the non-profit org Bunny's Buddies saved him, and Colton got involved to make it a happy ending for all.

Colton Underwood Saves Dog Destined For Dinner Plates

EXCLUSIVE

1:30 PM PT -- They're officially bros now.

11:00 AM PT -- Thor is on his way to Colton!

Colton Underwood has a new roommate ... and it's an adorable one.

The 'Bachelorette' star is the proud new owner of a 2-year-old German Shepherd rescue ... the dog was destined for the meat markets of Asia before a non-profit org saved him and brought him to San Diego.

Colton made a donation to Bunny's Buddies, and they set him up with the pup. The ex-NFL stud was united with his new friend Saturday and changed his name from Tor to Thor.

That was a superhero move by Colton. His other dog, Sniper, will be happy too.

'Bachelorette' Contestant Suspended by Universal Studios After Sexual Harassment Claims

'Bachelorette' contestant Leo Dottavio is under investigation for sexual harassment, and his job as a stuntman at Universal Studios might hang in the balance ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... a complaint with human resources was filed Friday by someone who claims to have witnessed Leo making several women uncomfortable on the set with excessive hugging and unwanted flirting.

The complaint also mentions Leo sliding into the women's DMs and making them uncomfortable with the conversation.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

We're told the person who filed the complaint says the alleged behavior went down at the end of 2017 when Leo worked on the "Water World" show ... but before he was cast on 'Bachelorette.'

He'd been working on "Water World" for 3 and a half years, but he was taken off the schedule in response to the initial allegations made by a former 'Bachelor' contestant ... who publicly accused him of sexually harassing women more than a decade ago. Leo denied those claims.

We've reached out to Leo who tells us he's unaware of the more recent allegations.

We reached out to Universal and a spokesperson tells TMZ, "We are aware of the situation and have taken appropriate actions" ... referring to the suspension.

We're also told Leo is technically employed by a third party production company ... and that company is investigating the allegations. Universal has suspended him pending that investigation.
