Almost two years after being accused of being unfaithful to her Bachelor in Paradise costar, Jenna Cooper is moving on and clearing her name on the scandal that ended her engagement to Jordan Kimball. At the time Cooper was a fan favorite given her lovable personality, and was positioned to parlay her sizable fanbase into a new chapter as a social media influencer.
As fans may remember, Jenna and Jordan got engaged on the season 5 finale of BIP, in September 2018. But on the same day the episode aired, Bachelor blogger, Steve Carbone aka “Reality Steve” released screenshots of text messages that appeared to show Cooper talking to a “sugar daddy.”
Jenna sat down with Insider.com and says when she began receiving tips that Carbone, the reality TV blogger and preeminent source of Bachelor franchise gossip, was planning to “expose” her for bad behavior, she laughed it off.
“I hadn’t done anything,” she says, ”So I wasn’t too worried.”
But soon Carbone continued to tesae the ‘big reveal’ and Cooper started getting anxious. At the time, Kimball was still in the picture, convincing her that everything was ‘going to be ok.’
