Bachelorette 2014: One of Andi Dorfman’s Contestants Cut for Trolling!
Andi Dorfman has a lot of hard choices to make this season on The Bachelorette, cutting 24 guys to get down to just one lucky remaining fella. But one guy she won’t have to cut is Will Barry, the hottie Reality Steve announced the day after Andi was confirmed as Bachelorette. While Will was originally part of the mix, he’s since been cut — for a surprising reason!
It turns out that Will, a musician from Pennsylvania, didn’t make the final group of guys. Typically, production flies out a few extras, just in case something goes wrong. In Will’s case, it was a case of trolling brought to the producers’ attention. There was a guy named “Unclesexy” (yes, really) who harassed former contestants on Twitter, in live chat rooms, and on Reality Steve’s site — and Will was accused of being the troll.
While Steve mentioned this in a column, it turns out that Will is not really the troll. Although he did appear on the Spreecast under that identity, Steve says Will was just doing the real controller of the handle a favor. However, the damage has already been done, as Will is outie.
He took to his Facebook after being booted to announce that he wouldn’t be getting free roses anytime soon. “It is with a heavy heart and great displeasure that I have to announce that I will not be participating in any reality TV shows in the near future. There has been an enormous misunderstanding and false accusation of a social media impersonator that has caused me to have to leave the show. I appreciate the support and love from my family and friends, and I hope to keep my head high during this unfortunate situation,” he writes.
Well, that’s totally a bummer for Will. Roses aren’t cheap, and Andi is one of a kind!
