Uh oh! BetWWTS.com, an offshore gaming company in Antigua, has been taking wagers on the outcome of ABC's The Bachelor. Will Aaron choose Helene or Brooke? Strangely, a large number of bets were placed by residents of his hometown of Springfield, Mo. and they all bet on Helene. Since the show is pre-taped with an outcome already known to some could Springfielders have obtained inside info? "My parents don't even know the outcome," Aaron told The Associated Press, "let alone my friends." Meanwhile, ABC dismisses talk of an alleged tip-off as mere "urban legend." In related news, The Bachelor was the top-rated reality series last week among young viewers beating Survivor: Thailand for the first time.
