The latest season of ABC’s “The Bachelor” has proven to be a snooze-fest. But now, it seems, it may end with a dash of controversy.
On Sunday night’s “The Bachelor: The Women Tell All” special, one cryptic exchange stood out. Holliston native Caroline Lunny called out bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. for . . . something, though just what it is, viewers don’t yet know.
“I know what you did, and I don’t know how you could do that,” said Lunny, seeming to be on the verge of tears. “I just really don’t understand, but I hope you found what you’re looking for.”
An emotional Lunny, a 2009 Holliston High School graduate, continued: “You don’t need to answer me but I needed to say it.”
The bachelor, for his part, seemed unfazed by whatever it was that Lunny referred to, though some of the other women on the show looked aghast during the exchange.
“I appreciated you saying that,” Luyendyk said. “I think that’ll play out in the weeks to come.”
In an interview done after the show taped, Lunny, who was crowned Miss Massachusetts USA in 2013 and prior to that was Miss Massachusetts Teen USA, continued to stoke the mystery controversy. This is reality TV, after all.
“I was furious honestly,” she told E! News. “You’ll see why. I’m heartbroken the way things went down, the way he handled it.”
Lunny, now a realtor in Florida, also told The Hollywood Reporter: “It was so much worse than anything, ever, in ‘Bachelor’ history — I feel like it is probably the worst heartbreak in the show’s history.”
The next episode of “The Bachelor” airs Monday at 8 p.m., and the finale is scheduled for March 5.
