“The Bachelorette” alum JJ Lane does not have a big fan base. The 32-year-old former investment banker was reportedly jumped after leaving the “Men Tell All” after-party.
JJ was in Los Angeles this past weekend filming the “Men Tell All” special for Season 11 of “The Bachelorette.” According to TMZ, he and a crew member on the ABC reality show were jumped by “at least five thugs” when they left the party. The site reports that the pair took a couple of punches until fellow alum, Ben Zorn, came out to break up the fight. JJ was brought to the hospital for a potential concussion following the incident.
JJ shared a photo of his injuries on Twitter, tagging one of his other cast mates, Jonathan Holloway. “Bruh! It’s always an adventure hanging with you buddy,” he posted. The photo shows him with two black eyes.

Jonathan responded to JJ’s tweet, “just don’t p--- me off next time! Lol,” he wrote.
JJ made waves on "The Bachelorette" for his "Brokeback Bachelor" bro-mance with cast member Clint Arlis. The two grew close and plotted to take down other contestants in the house. They even coined their own catch phrase -- "Villains gotta vil." Their friendship fell apart when star Kaitlyn Bristowe found out that Clint wasn't on the show for the right reasons (he told the cameras that he wanted a rose to get more time with JJ). She made Clint say goodbye to the other contestants in episode 4, which is when JJ threw his BFF under the bus. He called out Clint for wasting everyone's time and emotions. JJ ultimately got eliminted in episode 7 after confessing to Kaitlyn that he had cheated on his wife.
“The Bachelorette: Men Tell All” special airs on ABC on Monday, July 20 at 8 p.m. EDT.
