Singles are rocked by scandal as TWO women are accused of being paid actors: ‘There are no other alternatives’
A former Bachelor star has accused two of this year’s season’s contestants of being “paid actors” hired to stir up drama in the mansion.
Laura O’Loughlin, who was one of Jimmy Nicholson’s wives in the 2021 season, is convinced that Jessica Navin and Tash Candyce are studio “plants”.
She said the big giveaway is the fact that Jessica and Tash’s full names are used on the show, while the other girls are only referred to by their first names.

“There is no other alternative for me to explain why their full names are used to refer to them,” Laura told her Instagram followers.
‘When girls and guys refer to them, they say their full names. There is no other Jess and Tash,” she added.
“It looks like their full name used was part of their ‘acting deal’ to gain notoriety. It looks like it’s all staged for drama.
However, one of the current stars of The Bachelors has denied this.
Laura is convinced Jessica Navin (left) and Tash Candyce (right) are studio “plants” because their full names are used on the show, while the other girls are only referred to by their first names.
Krystal Thomas said there was a more logical reason the two were referred to by their full names – and it had nothing to do with an “acting contract”.
“In the first week, Jessica once said, ‘Oh, you should start calling me Jessica Navin,'” she told Yahoo Lifestyle.
“We realized she was just putting her name out so she could advertise! It’s a publicity stunt from both of them,” she added.
The Bachelors star Krystal Thomas (pictured), however, denied this, saying the couple had simply asked for their full names to be used to ‘advertise’ – but that doesn’t mean they are actors
Laura was dumped by Jimmy Nicholson after failing to reach first base on their only date of the 2021 season.
A source told Daily Mail Australia at the time: ‘Laura was particularly heartbroken because he made a stupid excuse like ‘I’m not going to kiss you; I kiss too many girls and my family is not happy.
According to the insider, she felt Jimmy wasn’t being honest with her because she was the only contestant who didn’t get a kiss after landing just one date.
“She felt like she was there for the comedic value of the show and Jimmy didn’t care about her at all. It was sad,” they said.
