Yikes! Bachelor In Paradise’s Jordan Kimball didn’t find his happily-ever-after after all. The male model got down on one knee and proposed to Jenna Cooper during the BIP finale on Tuesday, September 11, and Reality Steve has since posted alleged text messages from Jenna that reveal she used him for the relationship.
One of the alleged text messages between Jenna and the man, who has yet to be identified, say: “I know you’re upset about this week’s episodes but I told you yesterday and I keep telling you that this is all for my business. You know how much I need the money. Me and Jordan aren’t together for real. I don’t even like him let alone love him. I’m better than him and once I’m able to I’ll break it off for good and make up some story to make him look bad if it’ll make you feel better. He means nothing to me and never has.”
Jenna has since denied she wrote the message, and told People in a statement: “I am aware of the allegations being made against me and they are simply untrue. I am choosing to focus on my relationship right now. Thank you for respecting my privacy at this time.”
Jordan, however, isn’t buying it.
“It felt like a body drop,” he told the magazine. “I got taken down. I’m weak in the knees and I feel like I have rocks in my stomach.”
In fact, he got the feeling Jenna had done something after she reacted anxiously to a Twitter post which hinted that someone on BIP was going to be "roasted" soon.
“Jenna called me and said she was very anxious about this Twitter post,” he explained. “I talked to her in the middle of the night last night – I said don’t hype yourself up, don’t worry, you have nothing to worry about. I tried to calm her. I went back to bed for a few hours, woke up, had my coffee and she called me again and said she was anxious and felt sick to her stomach. … I thought she was just being nervous for no reason," he continued. "Then I was driving back to Central Florida from Miami and I started getting calls from castmates like Chris Randone. I started getting screenshots sent to me. I didn’t know what to think. I sank in my seat.”
Jordan added that the texts also sound like Jenna.
“I know my Jenna, and I read those texts and in my heart, I know it’s her,” he said. “She was saying she didn’t do it, but hinting towards the fact that there’s a possibility that it happened. In all reality, I don’t expect her to own it.”
“I would never have expected this,” he added. “I feel sick about it. I just don’t understand why someone would say that they’re better than me and have ill intentions. If this whole thing sticks, and it’s true, I will be hurt much more than the depths of romance. I will be hurt as a person and as a friend. There are so many layers to a relationship and right now I feel all of them peeling back.”
He concluded that he obviously didn’t know Jenna well enough.
“All I know is I obviously only knew a limited amount of information about Jenna. This is embarrassing and it hurts my pride,” he said. “And our friendship is just tarnished. I don’t even know what piece to pick up or how to put it back.”
