Lane tweeted about his misfortune on July 13.
Fellow contestant Jonathan Holloway joked that JJ's pair of black eyes was from him.
But as for what actually went down, JJ had this to say:
I stood up for a friend on Saturday and rec'd 2 black eyes for my effort. I did however leave 4 of them hurt and running away. #Facts— JJ Lane (@jjhlane) July 15, 2015
Wrong place and wrong time. It was an unfortunate situation and I'm thankful it wasn't worse for myself or my friends.— JJ Lane (@jjhlane) July 15, 2015
TMZ exclusively reports that JJ and a producer were apparently jumped by what he believes to be a gang and got in a fight. Who came to the rescue? The one and only Ben Zorn, known to Bachelor Nation as Ben Z.
Could this Instagram photo mean that Ben Z. is a late addition to "Bachelor in Paradise"? We'll have to wait and see.
