Bachelor’s 7 Most Annoying Contestants Ever
This list was originally going to be titled, “The Top 7 Bachelor Villainesses,” but compared with The Bachelorette, where two-timing schmucks and sociopathic personality types are a dime a dozen, the crimes of the female contestants tend to be more of the “Doesn’t play well with others/Is too pretty/Too fake/Too confident/Doesn’t shower” variety. In other words, the women who are cast as villains often don’t really deserve the title in the same way that, say, Bentley Williams from Ashley’s season on The Bachelorette does. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be as annoying as fingernails on a chalkboard — which is why we have decided to go with The Top 7 Most Annoying Contestants Ever To Appear On The Bachelor. Who remembers these lovely ladies?
7. Ashley Iaconetti (Chris’s Season)
When this Kim Kardashian lookalike emerged from the limo, the resounding question was, “How could a girl who looks so high maintenance be interested in a farmer from a Podunk town in the-middle-of-nowhere Iowa?” With her perfectly made-up face and fake eyelashes that were in danger of falling off every time she cried, which was about every five minutes, Ashley I. certainly didn’t seem like someone who’d be at home riding tractors and mucking around in the fields all day. But she surprised everyone when she won a tractor driving competition on the first group date, so who knows? The fact that she was a virgin at 26 was something that she really liked talking about, which served to alienate her from the other girls — along with the fact that she threw a hissy fit when Jade got the “Cinderella” date with Chris, believing that she totally deserved to get it (since she did, after all, bear a striking resemblance to Jasmine, from Disney’s Aladdin). Chris let her go during a 2-on-1 in the desert, along with our #2, Kelsey Poe. Luckily for this wannabe princess, she was given a second chance at love on Bachelor in Paradise, which is currently airing. We wish her all the best.
6. Vienna Girardi (Jake’s Season)
In all truthfulness, the so-called “Man Eater” from season 14 didn’t really do anything horribly obnoxious on her season — she was just herself: a kind of ditzy, sort of tacky, immature 23-year-old from Florida whose personality rubbed the other women in the house the wrong way. Yes, she was definitely self-involved, but at least she wasn’t mean to anyone else. Still, cast as a villain she was, and the majority of Bachelor Nation couldn’t believe it when commercial pilot Jake Pavelka chose her over sweet-as-pie runner-up Tenley Molzahn in the end. But the real drama began after the season concluded, and Jake and our girl Vienna wound up being the first Bachelor couple to get their own Bachelor special, The Bachelor Breakup, a few months later, where the feelings of ill will between the two were so strong it made it hard to watch. Train. Wreck.
