History has a way of repeating itself on The Bachelor franchise and the parallels couldn't be more obvious. Last season on The Bachelorette, Ed Swiderski left the show because of his job but returned to win Jillian Harris' heart, while Bachelorette contestant Jake Pavelka was eliminated but returned on the show to warn Jillian about contestant Wes Hayden, who allegedly had a girlfriend. And then after Ed proposed to Jillian on the Bachelorette finale, rumors started to surface about his sexual affair with another woman.
Almost the same thing happened on The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love
. Ali followed Ed's footsteps as she chose her career over love while Jake got a dose of his own medicine when several contestants warned him about Vienna Girardi. Now, word on the street is that Jake cheated on fiance and Bachelor
winner Vienna with an ex-girlfriend.
