The Bachelorette

Emily Maynard’s Ex Calls Out Bachelor Contestants: You’re Not Famous!

Wolf is on the attack!

John Wolfner just missed the Hometown Dates phase of Emily Maynard’s The Bachelorette Season 8, but he didn't exactly leave the show as a household name. Which is fine, cuz the "data destruction specialist" probably wasn't there to get famous. And now that he has some distance from the spotlight, he's throwing shade at any fellow alum who confuses being cast on The Bachelor/ette with being a celebrity.

Wolf brought the claws out in this August 22 tweet: "I'm going to take a shot at former bachelor contestants that have contact info for business inquiries... How about" (Think someone already has that Gmail address?)

One person who enjoyed the call-out is Ashley Spivey of Brad Womack's second round of dumpings. Spives responded, "this just made me giggle." Wolf replied, "well, then my work here is done."

Ashley doesn't have business call-outs in her Twitter profile, but many Bachelor alumni do. They leave the show, head onto Twitter, and use the instant "fame" provided by millions of primetime as a platform to promote themselves and their work.

And why shouldn’t they? Maximizing the brief attention sometimes leads to more opportunities. Jillian Harris, Ali Fedotowsky, and Chris Lambton are just a few alumni to find independent TV success after the show. And four past Bachelor/ette contestants have been on Dancing With the Stars, which has admittedly loosened its “star” standards, but they (Trista Sutter, Jake Pavelka, Melissa Rycroft, Sean Lowe) are now as close to "famous" as that email address would require.

John is probably not a lone Wolf howling this you’re not famous call-out. Many fans likely agree, and even some other alumni would likely offer a slow clap. What do you think?
