(Newser) – Ed Swiderski, who won the heart of Bachelorette Jillian Harris and almost immediately started battling cheating rumors, “never” took the show seriously, Us reports. In a series of emails published by, it's clear that Swiderski wooed two other women while competing on the show, promising to “molest” one when he got home. He also admitted, “I am not, in any way, attracted to the chick”—that “chick” being Harris.

“Go with it, Steve-o!” Swiderski said when alerted by the emails would be published. “After all, God put you here to report on reality TV, and that's certainly something to be proud of. It's your duty!”
