The season premiere of The Bachelor is still a few days away, but the 14th installment of the reality show has already gotten its first big scandal.
A finalist vying for the heart of Texas pilot Jake Pavelka was reportedly caught in an affair with a crew member from the show, UsMagazine.com has learned.
ABC made the news public when it aired a brief promo about the unnamed female contestant late last week.
"She`s been having this sexual affair with somebody else in the Bachelor house," one of the other women says in the clip.
This isn`t the first time The Bachelor has faced scandal. As first reported by Us, The Bachelorette`s Ed Swiderski allegedly cheated on Jillian Harris while filming and had two girlfriends at the time he proposed (he denied the allegations). In March, Bachelor star Jason Mesnick famously dumped ex-fiance Melissa Rycroft on national television for fellow finalist Molly Malaney.
The new season of The Bachelor, which was filmed last fall, premieres Monday with Pavelka -- who was rejected by Harris on the last season of The Bachelorette -- meeting his 25 potential mates.
