Where are The Bachelor cameras when you need ‘em? In the wake of lifestyle blogger Airelle Snyder and Bachelor contestant Lauren Hussey’s searing (searing, I say!) YouTube video, Bachelorette alum Luke Pell has some things to say about “The Almost Bachelor.” On Thursday, Us Weekly shared Pell’s response to Snyder and Hussey's cheating and ghosting accusations. Now, if you haven’t been keeping tabs on the Pell gossip, fear not: Bachelor Jedi Reality Steve put together an incredibly extensive breakdown of the drama that’ll bring you up to speed.
I hope you have your goggles on, because we’re about to dive in. So, who are the two individuals in "The Almost Bachelor" video? Hussey, as Bachelor fans may recall, was eliminated on the first night of Nick Viall's season. Last October, she reached out to Pell, and not before long, they were in a relationship. After their romance seemed to blossom into something serious, Hussey moved to Nashville. And that’s apparently when Hussey started to see Pell in a less-than-favorable light. In the YouTube video, Hussey said she "found proof [she] wasn't the only person, and he admitted to it.” They broke up earlier this year.
Here is what Pell told Us Weekly:
Snyder’s link to Pell began when he was still in the running toward becoming America’s next top Bachelor last summer. Back in March, Snyder shared her side of the story in another YouTube video. According to Snyder, a certain someone reached out to her via social media, encouraged her to audition for The Bachelor, and led her to believe she’d win. However, when the show ultimately went to Viall, Pell allegedly ghosted on Snyder. The Bachelor talk starts around the 10 minute mark:
Plot not thick enough for you yet? Well, according to Reality Steve, Pell allegedly tried to recruit Bach alum Jubilee Sharpe for his season, too. And when he wasn't picked for The Bachelor, Pell allegedly cut off communication with her, too. Oh, and he also might've done the same to a Bach hopeful named Holly Allen, maybe? The whole thing is a doozy and I can barely keep up.

So, what does Pell have to say about Snyder’s claims? Here is his response:
But before I go, here’s one more thing from Pell via Us Weekly:
And finally, here's what Snyder told Us Weekly:
Again, it truly is a shame The Bachelor cameras aren't catching all of this.
