One of the new leading men from The Bachelor(s) 2022 may have just spoiled how this season ends with a wild night out on the town Sydney.

Jed McIntosh reportedly “seemed single” during a recent outing, suggesting he may have already split from his Bachelor winner.

That or he pulled a Honey Badger and chose no one as his winner, as Nick Cummins did in 2018… though we doubt that.

Jed reportedly told one woman who recognised him from The Bachelor 2022 announcement that he “couldn’t confirm” if he was still with any of the women from the show, but it was “a good experience.

“He seemed very single,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle.

“It was really weird he was there on his own, he told us he was waiting for his mates but no one came. We left at around 3am and he was still there on his own. It’s as if he just went out to meet people.”

While we try to take rumours about reality TV shows with a grain of salt, The Bachelor hasn’t always had a great track record of producing lasting couples in the past.

Last year’s leading man Jimmy Nicholson is still with winner Holly Kingston, as is Locky Gilbert and his winner Irena Srbinovska – but many more romances have failed after the show aired.

And it’s not the first time Jed himself has made headlines; he was in the spotlight in May when sexist Facebook posts from 2011 resurfaced online.

Screenshots shared by a since-deleted Twitter account in the wake of his casting announcement appeared to show a younger Jed posting about going to “smash p—sy” and “perving” on women with male friends.

He quickly released a statement addressing the posts via the Daily Telegraph, saying: “These posts are from over 10 years ago and I don’t have any recollection of making them. Anyone who knows me knows this is not who I am.

“As a kid we say things not understanding the gravity of the language used but I can adamantly say as an adult I do not agree with the use of language and sentiment of the posts.”

Jed would have been around 14 at the time the posts were allegedly shared to Facebook and insists he’s come a long way in the more than a decade since.

“I have the upmost [sic] respect for women, am a strong advocate for assault victims and would never want to cause any harm or hurt to anyone,” he said.
