Did Sydney Lie About Maria On The Bachelor Season 28? The Truth Revealed!

Did Sydney lie about Maria on The Bachelor? If you are a fan of The Bachelor, you may have been following the drama between Sydney Gordon and Maria Georgas, two of the contestants competing for Joey Graziadei's heart. Sydney accused Maria of being disrespectful and rude to other women in the house, especially Lea Cayanan, who is Sydney's friend. Maria denied these allegations and claimed that Sydney was making up stories to sabotage her relationship with Joey. So, who is telling the truth? Here is what we know so far.

Key Takeaways

  • Sydney's accusations against Maria on "The Bachelor" appear to be unfounded, with no evidence to support her claims and indications of her own motivations to undermine Maria due to a personal rivalry.
  • The conflict between Sydney and Maria escalated due to misunderstandings and Sydney's efforts to sway others against Maria, culminating in a decisive two-on-one date where Joey chose to trust Maria over Sydney.
  • "The Bachelor" continues to be a platform for intense personal dynamics and strategic maneuvering among contestants, as seen in the drama between Sydney and Maria, underscoring the complexities of forming genuine connections under the public eye.

Did Sydney Lie About Maria On The Bachelor Season 28?

Based on the evidence we have so far, it seems that Sydney did lie about Maria or at least exaggerated some of the incidents. There is no footage or audio of Maria telling Lea to "shut the fuck up", and Lea herself did not confirm or deny this claim. In fact, Lea later joined forces with Sydney to continue bashing Maria after Sydney's elimination. Moreover, some of the other women who witnessed the pool party said that they did not hear Maria say anything rude or disrespectful to anyone.
On the other hand, there is footage of Sydney gossiping about Maria behind her back and stirring up drama among the other women. She also admitted that she had a personal vendetta against Maria because she felt threatened by her connection with Joey. Therefore, it seems that Sydney was not being honest or fair with her accusations against Maria.
During the Two-on-One Date, Sydney claimed to Joey that Maria told Lea to "shut the f*** up" at a pool party in Episode 4 because she tried to defend Sydney during her argument with Maria. "When you left the pool party, hell broke loose. Maria started attacking me in front of the group. This was the first time the girls tried to step in and she told Lea to shut the f*** up.[...]." When Joey asked Maria about what Sydney had said about her telling Lea to shut the f*** up, Maria denied it. "Absolutely not. I would never say that. First of all, that's so vulgar. No. It's such a lie. [...]" Maria said. 

Who Are Sydney And Maria On The Bachelor?

Sydney Gordon is a 25-year-old social media manager from Los Angeles, California. She describes herself as "funny, outgoing and adventurous" on her ABC bio. She loves traveling, hiking and dancing. She also has a pet hedgehog named Quill Smith.
Maria Georgas is a 29-year-old real estate agent from Toronto, Canada. She describes herself as "confident, ambitious and loyal" on her ABC bio. She loves skiing, snowboarding and surfing. She also speaks four languages: English, Greek, French and Spanish.
After her elimination on The Bachelor Season 28, Sydney took to Instagram with an audio message a viewer had sent her calling her a "b****" among other names. While she didn't acknowledge her claim that Maria told Lea to "shut the f*** up," she did confess that there were certain things she said that she wishes she could take back. "[...] I can't speak of details about the show, but I can say there are certain things that I wish I did differently and things I wish I didn't say."
So, how did the feud start? The feud between Sydney and Maria started in the second week of the show, when Madina Alam, another contestant, expressed her insecurity about being the oldest woman in the house at 31. Maria, who is also older than Joey at 29, tried to comfort Madina by saying that Joey probably loves older women and that age is not something to be ashamed of. However, Sydney overheard this conversation and interpreted it as Maria mocking Madina's feelings. She then told Madina what Maria said and started spreading rumors about Maria being condescending and mean to other women.
The feud escalated in the third week of the show, when Sydney confronted Maria in front of the group and accused her of telling Lea to "shut the fuck up" during a pool party. Maria denied this and said that Sydney was lying and trying to ruin her reputation. The other women were divided on who to believe, with some siding with Sydney and some with Maria.
The feud reached its climax in the fourth week of the show, when Joey decided to take both Sydney and Maria on a two-on-one date in Malta to settle their differences. On the date, Sydney repeated her accusations against Maria and told Joey that she was not someone he would want as his wife. Maria defended herself and told Joey that Sydney was making up stories to get rid of her. Joey listened to both sides and ultimately chose to give the rose to Maria, sending Sydney home.
