The Bachelor’s 6 Wackiest Contestants
It’s not a surprise that when a bunch of beautiful strangers are put into a house to battle for the attention and affection of one person, who just happens to be extremely good looking, you’re gonna get yourself some crazy! And let’s face it, that what we as Bachelor fans are looking for is a person to shake things up and make the show a little more interesting. This list takes a look at some of The Bachelor’s wackiest contestants ever!
6. Kelsey Poe
This crazy lady has come to be known by Bachelor fans as “The Black Widow.” Kelsey appeared on Chris Soules season of the show and seemed to be more than willing to cash in on the tragic tale of her husband’s death. Her late husband collapsed and passed away while walking to work when his heart stopped at the age of 42. Many fans were shocked by the way in which Kelsey told Chris her story and followed it up with a purportedly faked panic attack. When EMS were called to assist the distraught widow, she stated “I’m gonna get a rose tonight, for sure.” One of the most ghastly things she said was “Isn’t my story amazing?! It’s tragic but it’s amazing. I love my story!” This left many wondering just how truthful she was being about her husband’s passing. Since the season aired, Kelsey has accused the show’s producers of editing the series in such a way to make her look awful just for ratings and that this caused her extreme emotional damage for which she is currently seeking therapy. She believes the show should cover her costs.
5. Ashley Iaconetti
Ashley prides herself on her supposed resemblance to a Kardashian, but may I make a comparison here? Ugh, hello…Amy Winehouse…with sparkles? So Ashley was also a part of the season starring Prince Farming, Chris Soules, and she made no secret of her virginity. Of course, when she confided in Chris, she truly expected some sort of a prize. When Soules didn’t immediately plant a smooch on her, she commented, “I don’t want him to respect me that much!” And of course, no one can forget her rage over not receiving the princess date and the way she dressed up anyways and chomped down on some corn on the cob. This girl’s tears were a crocodile mile and they didn’t stop after she was booted from the Bachelor. Ashley appeared on Bachelor in Paradise and shed countless salty springs over Jared Haibon.
