The Bachelor bachelorette Elise Mosca reportedly hooked up with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino when he starred on Jersey Shore and continues to pursue reality TV in the hopes of reaching celebrity status.

Mosca, a 27-year-old first grade teacher from Forty Fort, PA, used to be Sorrentino's "booty call" and only became interested in him to begin with because he was on television, according to a Star magazine source, RadarOnline reported.

"Elise knew Mike before he was famous. But she really focused on him after he hit it big. She wanted to be with him for the fame, and eventually it got kind of creepy," a Mosca friend reportedly told Star.

"After Mike became a hit on the series, Elise started showing up everywhere he was. It was almost like she was stalking him. She definitely seemed obsessed with him.

Mosca reportedly wanted to be in a relationship with Sorrentino but he just wasn't having it.

"Mike hooked up with Elise on occasion through the years. It was always strictly a booty call," the friend said.

"She was dying to be his girlfriend, but he was just having fun. Sometimes Mike would even lead Elise on, telling her they'd meet up at a specific time and place, then he wouldn't show. But I don't think she cared."

The bachelorette has allegedly claimed she "discovered" Sorrentino because she had asked him if he wanted to star on Jersey Shore when she was working the show's auditions in 2008.

"Elise had been doing some work for the casting company behind the series, and she knew Mike from around the Seaside Heights bars," the friend explained.

Mosca is one of 15 bachelorettes remaining in Juan Pablo Galavis' search for love during The Bachelor's currently-airing eighteenth season.
