Now here’s a shock. Justin Rego admits he had a girlfriend while on Bachelor Pad 2. Isn’t this the same guy who supposedly had a girlfriend while courting Ali Fedotowsky on The Bachelorette? Read on for the details…
Justin Rego was eliminated on Monday night’s season premiere of Bacehlor Pad 2 and that was fine by us — we didn’t care for him much. It was what he revealed to reporters during a conference call after his elimination that got our attention.
Justin Rego said of his strategy going in, “You know what? I did know that you have to have some game, kind of, coming on here. That was the part that I was looking forward to the most, was actually getting involved, getting mixed up and forming alliances to see how I can possibly take control of that house.”
Then came the news that was once dropped on Ali Fedotowsky when he was asked about being on Bachelor Pad 2 for love: “Damn it, I was hoping to avoid this question. You know what, unfortunately, I was not open to love at all on the show and I strictly want it for the money.”
He added, “I’m currently dating somebody back home in Toronto. And ironically this time around, I’m back on Bachelor Pad with the girl from back home. So yes, now I’m dating somebody who makes me very happy and I’ve been dating for several months.
Wait, the whole premise of the show is to find love again and win money. Did producers know this bit of information?
“Well going into the house, I did tell them I was single just for the option of using that to my advantage. But on the other hand, that’s another reason why I was kind of happy that I left home early, because I don’t want to do anything to jeopardize the relationship that I have with the person I have back home.”
Is anyone really surprised by this information. We certainly are not. Bachelor Pad 2 can be seen every Monday night and while last Monday was the Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi show, we’re hoping that changes.
