The Bachelorette may seem to be just a beautiful girl's journey for true love and marriage, but according to a contestant from this season, it's all a big sham! Pro dancer and law school graduate Josh Seiter, 27, exclusively tells all about the ABC series' blatant fakery to RadarOnline.com.

A scripted drama? Seiter, who was booted from the competition for Kaitlyn Bristowe's hand after two episodes, tells Radar that producers coached him and the other contestants on what to say. "Everyone was fed lines," he alleges. "In one of my testimonials, I said 'If I don't get a rose, it will be a blow to my ego.' Producers forced me to say that!"

So much for free speech! Seiter claims producers controlled conversations between contestants. "One night, they said, 'You and Justin and Clint go to the fireplace and talk about how Kaitlyn is handling this situation,'" he recalls.

The hunky stripper, who was interested in potential Bachelorette Britt Nilsson during the first episode, says he wasn't allowed to speak with the brunette beauty. "When I tried to talk to Britt, I was intercepted," he alleges. "Producers pulled me off to the side and ushered in another guy."

Not so romantic after all. After Nilsson was sent packing, Seiter claims fellow contestant Brady Toops was told by the crew to run after her. Perhaps not so coincidentally, the two are now dating!

Seiter, who as Radar revealed, also moonlights as a male gigolo, says he was ordered to strip during his opening scene. "I told producers I was just going to give her a hug when I got out of the limo," he claims. "They said it was too boring, and I needed to start stripping. We argued about it for five minutes. I'm sure they did something similar to all the other contestants!"

Does Bristowe, 30, really give out the roses? Seiter insists that producers ultimately decide who goes home and who stays. "Kaitlyn may collaborate with them, but they make the final decision," he says.

Producers attempted to pump Seiter up with false confidence, he says. "They assured me I was the frontrunner, but then I was eliminated after two episodes!"

According to Seiter, so-called "Brokeback bachelors" Clint Arlis and JJ Lane are not in a gay relationship. "That was all editing," he claims. "It's so obvious."
