10 Bachelor Villains Who Don’t Deserve The Hate
8. Kelsey Poe
With a last name like Poe (like Edgar Allan’s, of course), it might have been safe to assume that Kelsey would have a macabre side. However, we’re not quite sure if you would call her eventual actions dark or just down-right wrong. Fans were most certainly turned off by the contestant when she seemed to use her former husband’s death and her status as a widow to earn sympathy and cement herself a place on Chris Soules’ season (yeah, not cool at all). Despite the bitter taste her actions (and possible motivations) left in viewers’ mouths, we have to admit that everyone grieves in different (and sometimes unexpected and hard to understand) ways, so perhaps it’s best not to judge someone who has gone through a situation that’s so utterly heartbreaking.
7. Ashley Iaconetti
Also appearing on Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor, Ashley Iaconetti made it obvious pretty darn early on that she was a force to be reckoned with (to say the least), which made for some pretty fab viewing despite the fact that many Bachelor Nation folks deemed her as a clear-cut villain. Going on to appear on Bachelor in Paradise and currently co-hosting The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast with Ben Higgins (who is currently single after breaking off his engagement to Lauren Bushnell), like it or not, Ashely I isn’t leaving the scene any time soon, which makes us wonder if she is really the villain she’s made out to be, or maybe she’s really just one heck of a determined (and ambitious!) woman. We’ll just have to wait and see.
