Rejected Bachelorette Party-Crasher Says His Surprise Visit Was Scripted

We're only one episode into the new season of The Bachelorette, and already a war of words is brewing between the show and rejected (wannabe) contestant Chris Bukowski.

On Monday's season premiere, Bukowski, an alum of both Season 8 and Bachelor Pad, paid a surprise visit to the mansion in hopes of meeting Andi Dorfman. Unfortunately, Andi turned him away without even saying hello, and host Chris Harrison had to tell him he wasn't allowed inside.

Bukowski tells TMZ that it was the producers' idea for him to show up unannounced, and with a dozen roses no less. "They made it seem like they didn't know I was coming, but they knew," he told the site.

However, in an interview with TVGuide.com posted immediately after the episode, Harrison said Bukowski's stunt was not scripted. "Most people will assume we produced this and put this together, but you see how awfully produced it was and rough it was," Harrison said. "If we had produced this it would've looked a lot better. We had a security guard there cracking jokes!"

Check out the scene in question here. Who do you believe?

The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
