Tanner Tolbert Sparks Twitter Feud With Controversial 'Bachelor In Paradise' Star Leo Dottavio

Bachelor In Paradise alum Tanner Tolbert is the latest former Bachelor cast member to comment on Leo Dottavio's controversial appearance on the summertime spinoff. Tolbert started the conversation on Wednesday which surrounded Dottavio's relationship with Kendall Long.

Tolbert tweeted a photo, which showed Tolbert with an edited devil and angel on each shoulder. The devil had Dottavio's face and the angel had the face of Joe Amabile "Grocery Store Joe." The two men are competing for Long's affection on Bachelor In Paradise.

"Kendall, oftentimes life is filled with tough choices...this is not one of them," the tweet read.

Dottavio was controversial at the start of the season after Bachelor alum Bekah Martinez released a collection of messages, which called out Dottavio for prior sexual misconduct. Universal Studios, Dottavio's employer, then opened an investigation into a misconduct allegation filed by his coworker.

As the show, which was filmed before the allegations surfaced, aired, fans wanted to see Long choose Amabile over Dottavio. Tuesday night's episode showed a fight between the two men and viewers hoped it would be enough to convince Long that Amabile was the best choice.

Tolbert continued to tweet about Dottavio. "I like rats more than I like snakes," he tweeted. Dottavio responded with an aggressive inquiry to fight him. He later alleged he was joking.

"Hey, buddy why don't we settle this old school? Put some gloves on and step in the ring? Next time you're in LA maybe we can do that," Dottavio wrote. "Whoever loses donates 5k to charity. Heck, I'll let you wear headgear. When I knock you out can I stand over you and call you a beta?"

Tolbert responded and claimed Dottavio needs therapy.

"Can we just skip it and I'll donate the $5k towards getting you some therapy???"

Dottavio then posted alleged direct messages from Tolbert which stated he could appreciate Dottavio's humor.

Dottavio also went after Bachelor alum Jason Tartick, who is a fan favorite choice for the next Bachelor. Tartick tweeted his support for Amabile in the feud.

"Simple life lessons here, don't mess with a guy named Joe, from Chicago, who owns a Grocery store downtown. For countless reasons, it's a bad idea! Plus I love Joe!," the tweet read.

Dottavio responded with a simple hashtag, which takes the side of Tartick's possible competition for Bachelor. "#blakeforbachelor," he tweeted.

The controversial reality star also fought with former Bachelor In Paradise attendee Amanda Stanton on Twitter who alleged he sent her a threatening direct message.
