Something “Horrible” Coming Up on ‘The Bachelor’

The Rozlyn Papa scandal is in the past, as is the fake pregnancy scare – but an even bigger surprise is brewing.

Is it possible for ‘The Bachelor‘ to hit a new low? Signs point to yes, as soon as next week’s episode, when Jake Pavelka finds out “devastating” news.

“Horrible. Awful. On a scale of one to 10, it nears a 10,” he claims. This from the show that’s touted the “most dramatic rose ceremony ever” just about every week, every season. So take it for what you will.

Pavelka tells ET, “It is juicy now. It is going to get a lot juicier.”

Host Chris Harrison, who was responsible for asking Papa to leave after it was discovered that she had an affair with one of the show’s producers, promised fireworks in one particular scene.

“There is so much other stuff coming up that is a legitimate big deal,” he said to UsMagazine.com. “Next week’s rose ceremony is crazy!”

Is there any truth to the rumor that Pavelka is already engaged? Absolutely not says the ‘Bachelor.’ “My parents don’t know,” Jake claims. “They don’t have any idea of the outcome, so it is amusing to think that there are people out there who do.”
