Here’s a twist we didn’t see coming: Top 12 finalist Jermaine Jones may have been booted from the show — and it has nothing to do with a lack of votes.

According to TMZ, one of the remaining contestants was caught hiding information about past crimes from the show’s producers. The finalist was confronted on camera today, and the footage will be aired on Wednesday’s episode.

Shortly after news broke, Jermaine tweeted, “Awww I will no longer b on the show.” (The tweet has since been deleted.) Yikes, does this mean that the Gentle Giant is the one with the shady past?

We’re definitely tuning in on Wednesday!
