WARNING: Spoilers Below!
Last night’s The Bachelorette Season 8, Episode 6 underscored one major fact of life: Ryan Bowers was born to compete on Bachelor Pad. In Jef Holm’s words, Ryan exhibits a “professional level of cockiness” — which definitely wasn’t effective in winning Emily Maynard’s heart on The Bachelorette (in fact, she was wholly turned off by his aggressive masculinity).
Bad news, trophy wives: your champion will not be on Bachelor Pad 3. Despite the fact that there is indeed a “mystery man” (in addition to Kalon McMahon and Tony Pieper) from Emily’s season competing on the show, Ryan is not that guy. Bachelorette producer Robert Mills took to Twitter to preempt any BP3 hopes for Ryan, tweeting: “Ryan is NOT the Mystery Man on #BP3.”
Bachelor Pad 3 is currently filming in Los Angeles, and, thanks to Reality Steve, we have a pretty good idea of who the mystery man is: Chris Bukowski.
