OK, the first mystery surrounding The Bachelor has been exposed. As, RumorFix first told you Sheryl — the woman of a certain age who was on the show’s premiere Monday night — is indeed the grandmother of contestant Brittney.
And during the promo for this season — another mystery was teased. A mystery brunette is shown entering the Bachelor mansion to the surprise of the contestants.
RumorFix has learned exclusively that the Shawntel Newton from Brad Womack’s season comes back to be on Ben’s season.
A source close to the production tells RumorFix that Shawntel and Ben “were texting and flirting before he started taping and she really liked him, so she asked producers if she could go on the show and attempt a relationship with him.”
We don’t want to spoil all the surprises, so we won’t tell you whether they found love.
The Bachelor airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC.
