'Bachelor' Scandal: Contestant Cheats on Jake With Crew Member

The season premiere is still a couple of days away, but already the 14th season of ABC's 'The Bachelor' has got tongues wagging.

It appears that someone else on the reality TV series -- besides the Bachelor Jake Pavelka himself, that is -- has been getting some loving. A recent ABC promo is teasing scandal, with one woman on the clip dishing that "she's been having this sexual affair with somebody else in the Bachelor house." And while the promo pans to footage of a couple of same-sex contestants frolicking around together, a New York Post report suggests that a 'Bachelor' contestant is actually having an affair with a male member of the reality show's production crew.

According to the article, fansofrealityTV.com has been touting this contestant-crew member romance for a while, though there's no word on which bachelorette it was, or the status of the crew member involved. ABC has no comment on the report.

This is not the first time 'The Bachelor' has been mired in scandal: Most recently, Jason Mesnick caused a tsunami of waves when he dumped fiancee Melissa Rycroft on national television and got engaged to fellow contestant Molly Malaney instead.

'The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love' features Pavelka, a commercial pilot from Dallas and an also-ran on the last season of 'The Bachelorette,' choosing among 25 single women to find his special someone. The two-hour premiere debuts Jan. 4 on ABC.
