Evan Bass to pay $150,000 over “deceptive” erectile dysfunction ads

Evan Bass is dealing with some erectile dysfunction problems–but not in the way you’re thinking.

Evan Bass first graced the Bachelor franchise during the third season of Bachelor in Paradise. He met and married his wife, Carly Waddell, and has an adorable family as a result. But he’s lately made headlines for a very awkward reason–erectile dysfunction.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, but no, it’s not his ED issue. According to E! News, Evan Bass has been slapped with a $150,000 lawsuit for “deceptive” ads. To backtrack a little bit, Bass is an erectile dysfunction specialist in Tennessee. Are you starting to see the connection now?

Earlier this week, the Attorney General of Tennessee Herbert H. Slatery III took action against Bass and his clinic to “protect consumers and the integrity of the commercial marketplace”. What exactly did Bass do? And why did it merit such a strong action against him?

Here is what the official documents had to say:

…sold erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and other men’s sexual function treatments through multiple widely-disseminated, deceptive marketing campaigns.

That is…awkward.

Apparently, Bass could have allegedly had a say in these ads and stopped them from coming out. So he had to know or at least someone should have told him.

Some of the claims against him stated that Bass’ clinic made claims about being able to solve/fix erectile dysfunction after just one visit. This was not actually the case, and hence, the reason for the complaint.

Evan Bass was ordered to pay the $150,000 judgment and it would appear that he has agreed. E! News has reported that the documents show Bass’ signature and agreed to all the terms of the judgment. Whether or not this means he is actually guilty of this may never be known. But him signing and agreeing to everything does make him look suspect.

Bass has not made any comments regarding the situation, and I’m not sure he will. I mean, that’s just super awkward–right?
