Bachelor In Paradise star Brendan Morais down 71K followers after Pieper James scandal as fans side with Natasha Parker
BACHELOR In Paradise star Brendan Morais has lost over 71,000 followers on Instagram following his Natasha Parker fallout.
The reality TV star was coupled up with Natasha Parker and they seemed like a great couple until Pieper James arrived on the Island.
Upon James' arrival at Paradise, she used her date card to invite a shocked Brendan on the one-on-one.
Yet, Brendan's surprise was revealed to be all an act when Pieper explained how Morais had intentionally pursued Parker in a bid to stay on the show until she arrived so they could build their social media following together.
In a moment captured by production, Pieper talked openly about their situation while Brendan seemed awkward as he admitted to doing certain things to bring them to this point.
In the one-on-one, Brendan confessed that having a girlfriend coming into Paradise wouldn't have looked good before Pieper thanked him for playing the game.
He said: "It has to be you and me, first and foremost, before anyone else, before anyone else on the beach.
"And that's the only way we're gonna get through this, like, being in the position we want to be in, utilizing this time here, and taking advantage of, you know, what Paradise would promote together.
Then Pieper confirmed their their relationship status in a confessional VT, and said: "Like, I'm here for Brendan. He is my boyfriend, we're dating, and I'm here to, like, continue our relationship.
"We're very much aligned on what it means to be here together and the next steps for us and kind of our expectations here in Paradise.
"We are gonna have a good time together and really make that time count, so let's hope it all goes according to plan."
The pair's behavior left viewers fuming at how they played Natasha, who was falling for Brendan, and subsequently began unfollowing the Bachelorette star in their droves on social media.
Before the episode aired, the TV personality had 349,000 followers on Instagram, according to analytics website Social Blade, but now has 278,000- meaning a total loss of 68,000 and counting.
