That took long enough. We finally know the identity of “The Bachelor” producer who was fired on the show for having an “inappropriate relationship” with contestant Rozlyn Papa, leading Bachelor Jake to have a moment of authentic emotion. His name is Ryan Callahan, and in addition to being a long-time vet of “The Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” franchises, he’s also worked on such shows as “The Cougar” and “The PussyCat Dolls Present.” And here’s the juiciest part: he’s married. More after the jump…
- On his now-deleted MySpace page, Ryan describes himself as such: “I work in the exciting, fast-paced, world of reality TV. When I’m not pretending to be a former American Gladiator, I enjoy telling strangers intimate details about my life from behind the safety of my computer. In addition, I’m probably better than you. Unless you have won the Heisman or Draddy Trophies, in which case, good on you.” [Starcasm]
- Ryan Twitters under the handle @TheTVRC, and currently has 60 followers. According to his profile, he is 6’3″ and describes his body type as “More to Love.” He lives in Los Angeles, doesn’t want kids, and is a Pisces. [Starcasm]
- RadarOnline.com says this of Ryan: “According to sources, Callahan is quite the ladies’ man, despite being married.”
- While Chris Harrison has held that Rozlyn and Ryan had a “physical relationship,” Rozlyn denies it. She says they were friends, and victims of the show needing serious drama. “There was no making out!” Rozlyn said. “What they mean by inappropriate relationship is not what inappropriate relationship means in the real world.” I kind of believe Rozlyn. Just going by the matching principle—that people tend to be attracted to people who are as attractive as they are—it’s hard to imagine these two humping in a broom closet during filming. But then again, Rozlyn did say, “If I had known that I was going to get accused of it, maybe I would have gone for it!” So maybe she was authentically into him?
