Is 'The Bachelorette' set up like Chris Bukowski claims?

“The Bachelor” franchise has been reeling fans in for over a decade now. Between the original “Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” there are several people involved in the shows. This week Andi Dorfman's season of “The Bachelorette” began airing. There were several gentleman fans liked, but there were also a few creeps. According to a May 21 TMZ report, Chris Bukowski's “surprise” appearance was scripted by producers. Bukowski says he applied too late for Andi's season and the producers concocted the idea to have him just show up with a romantic bouquet of flowers.

Andi Dorfman was on last season of “The Bachelor” and chose to walk away from Juan Pablo. Her confrontation with him was milked for days after it aired. Now that Dorfman is officially “The Bachelorette,” she has many difficult choices ahead of her. During the premiere there were several guys she seemed to like and it will be interesting to see how fast she will narrow it down.

The Twitter feed for “The Bachelorette” has been going wild about Chris Bukowski showing up at the mansion. Fans commented about it being a desperate attempt at fame once again, but others believe there was at least a little sincerity in his actions. Now that news is coming out that it was a set up, the entire show is being questioned. What other crazy things that will happen this season are scripted?

No comment has been issued from Chris Harrison or “The Bachelor” franchise. Fans are excited to continue watching Andi Dorfman on her journey to find a husband. “The Bachelorette” fans aren't sure we have seen the last of Chris Bukowski either. If there is anything learned about Bukowski from his appearances on “The Bachelorette” and “The Bachelor Pad,” it is that he is persistent. From what is being shown, it looks like this season of “The Bachelorette” is going to be filled with chemistry and connections.
