8 Bachelorette Villains Who Don’t Deserve The Hate
When a couple of dozen men from all over the country – with different backgrounds, outlandish personalities, and conflicting romantic methods – come together to woo the same woman at the same time, all while living together in one ginormous mansion, sparks are definitely going to fly. Frankly, if things didn’t get a little (or a heck of a lot) over the top drama-wise, we’d be pretty darn disappointed. That’s why there is inevitably one of two (or more) villains that crop up each season, some who deserve the title more than others, and a few who probably don’t deserve the hate at all.
8. Chad Johnson
Chad Johnson has had quite the ride when it comes to shows in the Bachelor universe. Vying for JoJo Fletcher’s heart on season 12 of The Bachelorette AND looking to make a connection on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise (with hints that he might be participating in an upcoming season of BiP, though not the upcoming controversial fourth season). During his time on screen he managed to not only put off viewers with his cringe-worthy drunken outbursts, he also… well (we guess we’re just going to have to come out and say it)… he pooped his pants. Ew! Ew! Eeew! However, nowadays, the dude who became (in)famously single is now in a relationship with model Zoe Baron, so perhaps he’s not as much of a villain as we first suspected. Maybe he’s just a wild kind of dude (who occasionally needs an emergency pair of underpants).
7. JJ Lane
During his short time on season 11 of The Bachelorette, JJ Lane was pretty hard to handle. His arrogance was beyond annoying and, according to a video comedian Amy Schumer put out back in 2015 (yep, even *she* couldn’t put up with the dude), JJ was also “missing charisma and humility and a sense of humor.” Oooh, ouch! However, in his defense, we have to say that he always tried to show total respect to Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, which is more than we can say for some of the other villains who appeared on the show throughout the years. So, is JJ really a villain? Perhaps not. Perhaps he’s just lacking charm in a very noticeable (and obviously romantically-stunting) kind of way.
