The Bachelor Reddit is a wild wild place. You cannot get anything by them. This week, they did some digging in public records and found out Tayshia Adams, Arie & Lauren Luyendyk, Colton Underwood, and Dale Moss all took out PPP loans during the pandemic. Tayshia’s rep put out a comment that the loan was needed to hire an employee. Colton wants absolutely nothing to do with this story and said he doesn’t fuck with The Bachelor and The Bachelor doesn’t fuck with him either. “Point blank.” The loan was used for Colton’s nonprofit that helps those with cystic fibrosis.
Arie’s LLC is literally titled “Instagram Husband LLC.” It’s all so ridiculous. Of course this opened an intense discussion over whether or not these people really needed to be applying for these loans when small businesses struggled so much. It became very feisty between other folks in Bachelor Nation, with a few commenting that they thought about applying, but deciding against it (Jason and Blake).
Nick Viall summed it up the best in this TikTok:
Pretty spot on. 20k is two Instagram posts max for some of these people.
