The Bachelor alum, Maria Georgas, unfollowed the new Bachelorette, Jenn Tran, over casting drama. Maria took a stance on social media after Jenn’s appearance on the Call Her Daddy podcast. While both beauties competed season 28 of The Bachelor for Joey Graziadei’s heart, many fans expressed their desire for Maria be the next Bachelorette. With Daisy Kent‘s name in the mix another potential leading lady, several members of Bachelor Nation were shocked when Jenn was named The Bachelorette.

Jenn on casting:

“The truth of the matter is there’s a lot of narratives out there and they’re not necessarily the truth,” began Jenn. “This show has been going on for years and years. 21 years of this show specifically. Every season there are multiple people in contention for the role. Multiple people are doing interviews or doing fittings or filming intro packages. And it’s never really you until it’s you. That’s why I was a little disappointed. The narratives out there aren’t exactly true.”

After explaining that there are “always multiple people” in consideration for the role, Jenn stated that choosing a lead comes late in the process. “It was disappointing to come back from this incredible journey for myself and see all this speculation around it and have all these things take away from what my journey was,” she said, alluding to Maria’s claims.

In case you missed what Maria said about Jenn:

In a June interview (while Jenn was filming) Maria dished, “It was set in stone. I was it,” Maria said about accepting the title of Bachelorette. “When everyone around me was so supportive of me being in this position and everyone wanted this for me, I took a second. I’m like, ‘Why am I not happy? Why am I not excited about this?’ It took me realizing that it’s just not my time [and] I was like, ‘Respectfully, I need to decline. I need to take a step back.’”

Maria didn’t publicly address her decision to step back from the role so that Jenn could “have her moment.” She then said that Jenn is “the most perfect Bachelorette,” adding, “I couldn’t think of anyone better to do this. She was so ready for it, and that was enough for me to say, ‘Yeah, it’s not my time.’”
