BIP Contestant Bekah Calls Out Tia Booth After Rumors: The Drama Has Already Begun
Bachelor in Paradise is yet to return to the small screen for a few more months, but the drama has already started. Alum Bekah Martinez just called out Tia Booth and Colton Underwood for reportedly going on a date on the set of BIP after they told Becca Kufrin there was nothing between them.
A Twitter war just broke among the Bachelor’s contestants and it has created a drama already.
While the show is yet to air the contestants have already started building the reputation of the show. The Bachelor in paradise contestant Bekah Martinez called out Tia and Colton in a series of tweets after rumors of the pair going on a date on the set of BIP surfaced.
The pair told Becca Kufrin there was nothing between them.
Colton’s past with Tia was recalled on June 11, episode of The Bachelorette when she made a cameo on one of Becca’s group dates. The pair, who briefly dated before the season starting filming, told the current lead that their fling was short-lived and Colton insisted to Becca that he was interested in pursuing a relationship with her and not Tia.
Bekah called out Tia Booth and Colton Underwood for lying.
“Tia+Colton: ‘yeah Becca, we’re both 100% over each other! we’re TOTALLY not planning on getting back together/probably engaged the minute we’re in paradise (we’re gonna get so many followers from this manufactured narrative lol)’” Bekah, who appeared on season 22 of The Bachelor alongside Tia, tweeted on Thursday, June 14.
Raven Gates, however, came to Tia’s rescue.
Bachelor alum and Tia’s bestie Raven Gates came to her defense in a series of since-deleted tweets on Friday, June 15. Raven, who appeared on season 21 of The Bachelor and season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise, mocked Bekah’s tweet and changed it to apply to her friendship with the other Bachelor contestants.
Raven also tweeted
“Yeah, were totally 100% friends with each other!” she wrote. “We’re TOTALLY not planning on getting back together JUST to be on your season / sitting here playing friends and then talk s—t on Twitter (we’re gonna get so many followers from this manufactured narrative LOL!)”
Raven then also explained her side of the story
“Acting like friends for the sake of being on Tv and getting followers in a manufactured narrative,” she added. “Look in the mirror.”
Tia is still “looking for closure” from Colton after her cameo on The Bachelorette.
“Tia was surprised to find out Colton was going on Becca’s season. The last time they spoke was right before he went on the show,” an insider revealed. “She felt like there was still room for more between them … She’s still looking for closure, so she can move forward and on with her life.”
