‘None of the PPP went directly to Colton. In fact, Colton has never received any form of payment from the foundation, all of the proceeds go directly to people living with cystic fibrosis.’

The Bachelorette’s Dale Moss, 32, applied and was approved for a loan in the amount of $20,833, according to Vulture, but hasn’t gotten the money yet.

Bachelor alum Nick Viall chimed in on the reports of the loans, taking to Twitter to say, ‘What’s legal isn’t always right. What’s illegal isn’t always wrong.

‘Don’t know everyone’s situation, but my gut tells any alum applying for a PPP is both savvy and sh***y. Interesting debate.’

In response to a query from a follower, Viall noted he has ‘two business but chose not to seek out PPP.

‘For me it felt wrong given my circumstance relative to people in need,’ he said. ‘We also don’t know everyone’s situation. I can only guess.’
