Now, Aaron is speaking out, denying those claims.
Aaron Clancy Says His Feelings For Genevieve Were Real
Aaron Clancy told Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti on “The Ben and Ashley I: Almost Famous Podcast” that his feelings for Genevieve Parisi were “real” and he did not just use her for screen time.
“I get how it can look like that, and that’s why I went on this podcast, because I see things like that on the Internet — and it’s simply not the case,” Aaron said.
“Realistically, Genevieve and I connected on a lot of levels. I know they showed a lot of ups and downs… but we really had this very strong connection,” he continued to tell the co-hosts.
The two had many ups and down while on the beach, which has led many viewers to even call Aaron a manipulator and gaslighter. However, the two made it all the way until the last day on the beach, when Aaron then broke up wth Genevieve.
“I really, really wanted to make it work with somebody that’s in the same world, because I thought that was the answer to finding someone [with whom] to have a long-term relationship,” Aaron insisted.
Reality Steve Exposes Aaron Clancy
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Aaron Clancy is currently dating a woman, whom he actually began spending time with at least ten months ago — prior to “Bachelor In Paradise.”
“It’s pretty clear she’s making it known on her Instagram that her and Aaron are a thing,” Carbone said on his podcast. Although he did not mention the mystery girl’s name, Carbone did say Aaron is definitely currently dating and/or hooking up with the woman.
“And based on some of her IG posts,” Carbone wrote in one of his blog posts, “[it] seems like this is someone who’s been around for a while.”
A Second Woman Comes Forward
Just days after the initial reports broke, a woman reached out to him regarding Aaron Clancy, claiming she was dating the reality television star as well — making her the second woman Aaron dated before the show.
“She started seeing Aaron in September of last year right when the last season of Paradise was airing,” Reality Steve wrote. “They dated from September through November when they broke it off. In January of this year, they rekindled and started dating again, this time more serious.” He then noted that this woman said she dated Aaron “from January through May, a couple weeks before he left for Paradise.”
The spoiler blogger continued to say there was an “undeniable” overlap between Aaron dating the new woman and his current girlfriend, who Aaron was also dating before the show.
She also posted a photo with Aaron in Summer 2021 from when they apparently took a trip to Tulum, Mexico together — prior to “Bachelor In Paradise.”
“There’s nothing that I’ve found from right before he left for BIP filming,” Carbone continued to write. “But I’m just being realistic here. Aaron is no different than a lot of the guys in this franchise. Plenty of them go on the main show and BIP with women back home that are basically put on ‘hold,’ or they have in the back of their minds if things don’t work out.”
Aaron has denied cheating on either woman and claims the first relationship ended before the second began.
