Bachelorette’s Top 7 Fall-Off-The-Couch Moments
In the 14 years that The Bachelor spin-off, The Bachelorette, has been on the air, fans have been treated to plenty of drama — arguably even more than on The Bachelor. Since every season brings even more drama than the last, we’re counting down the Top 7 Fall-Off-The-Couch Moments in Bachelorette history. Enjoy!
7. Chris Bukowski Crashes Season 10 Premiere
Before there was Nick Viall, there was Chris Bukowski, the original former contestant to show up at the bachelorette pad uninvited. And unlike Nick, Chris really did seem to crash the first cocktail party, unbeknownst even to the producers. As usual, there was a dramatic commercial break, as viewers were forced to wait to find out if Bachelorette Andi Dorfman would let the rejected suitor from Emily Maynard’s season come inside, and in a move that won the approval of most fans, Andi asked Chris Harrison to send Bukowski away without so much as talking to him. Humiliation and rejection — what more can you ask for from reality TV?
6. Country Crooner Wes Hayden Reveals He Has A Girlfriend
The Golden Rule for contestants on The Bachelorette has always been, “Thou Shalt Not Have a Girlfriend Back Home,” and bad boy country singer Wes Hayden was the first to break this taboo on season five (or, at least, the first to admit it on camera). He originally denied his girlfriend status when confronted by Bachelorette Jillian Harris, earning him an extra week in the house, but when Jillian finally came to her senses and kicked him to the curb, Wes let it all out during the cab ride of shame, bragging that he was “the first guy ever on The Bachelorette to make it to the top four with a girlfriend.” And then he tried to promote his music career. Seriously, like that was going to work.
