It was found that Jed already had a girlfriend back home, and he was there just to promote his music career.
The reports claimed that Jed and his ex-girlfriend made a deal and planned what he will do on the show.
In an interview, Jed's ex-girlfriend, Haley Stevens, opened about the plan and said, "We talked about it like it was a movie like these are characters. Because I didn’t even know who it was going to be it didn’t even seem real. Now, in hindsight, I’ve seen clips and Hannah is so genuine and sincere. If I could have seen this person that I’m seeing now and how much of her heart she is putting into this show — and into these guys and the process — it could have been a different ball game."
While things were still tough, there's another man, Luke Parker, who kind of derailed the format the show.
