FANS discovered proof that Ryan Fox LIED when he said he "knew nothing" about the franchise during his dramatic elimination from the show on Tuesday.
The Bachelorette contestant previously claimed he had no prior knowledge about the competition and created a binder full of notes to help him succeed.
However, the fan account @realitysteve uncovered a photo from his Instagram profile that tells a different story.
The image, posted in February of 2020, shows Ryan, 30, competing as the Bachelor in San Jose during the “Bachelor Live on Stage” Tour.
Ryan squatted while he was surrounded by women in the photo as he thanked "Bachelorlive staff" for "coaching" him through the process.
The caption read: "Well this happened last night… 🌹
"Thank you to the 10 beautiful ladies who put themselves out there on stage last night. You all did amazing!!! I honestly didn’t know how you did it? Lol Especially on short notice and not knowing what to expect 😬.
"Bachelorlive staff, hosts, and dancers thank you for coaching me and calming my nerves before the show and throughout. I was a wreck and needed it 😰.
"And lastly thank you to all my friends and family who came out last night. There was roughly 70+ people who paid to watch me suffer on stage 😂. Looks like I might have more friends then I thought 🤷🏻♂️.
"@bachelorliveonstage THAT was an experience of a lifetime! #Bachelor🌹 #Bachelorliveonstage #RoseBeforePropose #stonecoldfox🦊."
Reality Steve then quoted Ryan from his short-lived time on season 18 of the show, writing on Twitter: "Ryan: 'My friends wife who watches the show wrote the notes. I don’t know anything about the show really.'
"Also Ryan: he was the Bachelor in San Jose during the 'Bachelor Live on Stage' Tour last year."
Last night, Ryan was eliminated after Michelle felt he immediately "raised red flags" in their relationship.
After show hosts Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe found a binder filled with notes about how to succeed in his room, the season lead felt she needed to see it as well.
As they entered his room, Ryan nervously reassured his potential match that the notes only contained information like "phrases often used on the show, how to get a good edit, and how not to be a villain," so he would know what to expect as a contestant.
However, Michelle was instantly spooked and told her suitor: "This night really started off on a great note, and I fully get that there is gonna be bumps in a relationship, but I am not okay with starting a relationship on red flags."
Though Ryan pleaded with the elementary school teacher to let him "make it up" to her, she asked him to "respect" her choice to "listen" to her red flags and decided to "walk him out."
Others took to Twitter to slam the environmental consultant for "lying" during the season premiere.
"Hahaha so much for not being a villain!" one laughed, while a second noticed: "And he even wore the same suit??"
A third quoted Ryan, saying: '“This is my dream girls and dating list”' with several red flag emojis.
"That lying sack of s**t!" a fourth ranted, while a final put simply: "Busted."
The 18th season of The Bachelorette premiered last night, as the former basketball player from Minnesota looks for her perfect match among 31 potentials.
