Former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants Stephanie Boulton and Brett Moore have shared detailed accounts to share their side of the story after reports claimed Brett wrongly applied for Bachelor In Paradise while in a relationship with the gorgeous blonde.
Brett revealed producers of the hit Channel Ten show had planned to have the couple on the Bachelor In Paradise, however they changed their minds and only allowed the photographer onto the Fijian island.
"IMAGINE: you were in the really early days of dating someone and after a hectic year filming two tv series’ - along with some personal travel - leaving little time together since meeting, " he started.
"IMAGINE: you were both asked to then go on a show in Fiji, sip cocktails with your mates from the last two series and, more importantly, spend time with THE girl your interested in, all the while being paid.
Then imagine you arrived on the island first, her contract only then to be ripped up; leaving it too look like you went on a dating show without her," he wrote alongside a snap of his girlfriend.
"Imagine then airing it too Australia portraying you as a shit bloke and as always, forever putting production over humanity, despite never changing our story that we had been seeing each other in the lead up and couldn’t wait to be reunited in Fiji. Now you have “reality” TV, " Brett concluded.
Meanwhile, Stephanie detailed her experience with the producers while speaking to The Daily Telegraph.
“We had been dating, we had been hanging out and then he went on the island and this whole thing blew up,” Boulton said.
“We’re together now.
“So he got on the island and I think they just wanted their first drama so they just stitched him up and they just called me when he got kicked off and said, ‘If you’re coming onto the island and Brett’s not there, would you be willing to kiss people and stuff?’ and I was like, ‘No.’
“If Brett’s not there, what’s the point? I can continue this on the outside," she told the publication.
Production company Warner Bros have since responded to Stephanie and Brett's claims, and have denied the events.
