Theresa Nist riled fans with a post seemingly shading Gerry Turner. However, many Bachelor Nation alums showed her their support. Keep reading to see her post and the reactions it got.

Theresa Nist Under Fire For ‘Trash’ Post

Theresa Nist decided to get a little spicy on social media this week. Instead of her usual positive posts, she wrote about taking out the trash. Literally.

She shared several photos of the process of dumping her office trash can. The caption seemed to mock the media covering her every move since last month’s announcement that she and Gerry Turner were divorcing. The couple got married in January 2024, but called it quits just three months later.

“The Golden Bachelor star Theresa Nist was seen taking out her trash inside her office…The trash can appeared to be empty,” she joked in the post’s caption.

However, some of her followers took the “trash” comment as a reference to her ex-husband.

Bachelor Nation Alums Rally Around Golden Bachelor Star

Bachelor In Paradise star Brayden Bowers used Theresa and Gerry’s wedding as an opportunity to propose to Christina Mandrell. He said that he asked and was granted permission.

He took to the comment section to back up his Golden Bachelor friend. He assured everyone that Theresa meant no harm with her post.

“For everyone getting on her it wasn’t shade toward Gerry, it was towards the media who took pictures of her taking out her trash at home and writing an article about it.”

Gerry Turner’s runner-up Leslie Fhima wrote, “Omg this is the best!!!❤️😂 I love you,” clearly indicating that the two are no longer rivals.

Bachelor Season 26 winner Susie Evans chimed in, “You’re so funny for this Theresa!! 😂😂😂 I love to see you poking fun at the paparazzi! Can we also just take a minute to say how creepy it is people were photographing you outside of your home and without consent. You’re handling all of this so well!”
