Things are getting intense as Bachelor Nation wonders and speculate who will be named as the next Bachelor. Reality Steve came forward and said he’s heard that the new lead will be Greg Grippo. Of course, fans know Greg from Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette. Fans accused Greg of “gaslighting” her when he ultimately up and left the show. Katie herself even threw that term around and let him have it on After The Final Rose. Steve seemed fairly certain Greg would be the new lead. In fact, he said he would be very surprised if he wasn’t The Bachelor. Now, reports are flying around that one of Greg’s family members responded to Steve. What is going on?
Greg Grippo family member reportedly responds to Reality Steve
Following Steve’s tweet announcing Greg would most likely be named as the next Bachelor a family member reportedly responded. First of all, let’s recap what Steve said. He tweeted, “What I’ve been hearing the past 5 days or so regarding the next Bachelor are this…been told it’s going to be Greg. Obviously it’s never “official” until ABC announces it (whenever that may be), but at this point I would be very surprised if it’s not him.”
An Instagram account shared the news that Greg’s uncle replied to Steve. The now-deleted tweet said, “You are wrong. They offered it to Greg but he declined. Yes they wanted him. It will be Andrew.” While he did delete those comments, the speculated uncle also said in another reply, “Well then be prepared to be “surprised.”
At this point, there is no proof that the response actually came from Greg’s uncle. However, speculation remains it was him.
What do you think? Did Greg really turn the gig down?
