Bachelor’s Top 7 Fall-Off-The-Couch Moments
At the beginning of every new season of The Bachelor (of which there have been 19 so far — and 11 seasons of The Bachelorette), host Chris Harrison teases us with the exact same words: “Stay tuned for the most dramatic season of The Bachelor ever!” Although the words have started to sound a bit…err…trite, amazingly, Harrison never disappoints. Whether it’s due to inspired casting or producers’ hushed-up involvement, The Bachelor truly has gotten crazier and crazier with each new season, leading us to produce a list of the Top 7 Fall-Off-The-Couch Moments in Bachelor history!
7. Andi Dorfman Tells Camera That Her Overnight With Juan Pablo Was A Disaster
Along with being a total fall-off-the-couch shocker, this had to be one of the most satisfying moments ever on The Bachelor. Venezuelan soccer player dad Juan Pablo quickly fell out of favor with female viewers once it became clear he was far more in love with himself than with any of the women on the show. His seeming inability to have a real conversation with anyone and his attempts to deflect from this deficiency by constantly going in for kisses and repeating his catchphrase “It’s OK,” ad nauseam, were irritating to say the least. So when, after spending the night together in the Fantasy Suite as one of the last three women remaining, Andi went on camera to say the night was a disaster — especially after Juan Pablo had just finished telling the camera he thought it went very well — Andi completely redeemed herself as being one of the smartest Bachelor contestants ever. Smart enough to recognize what a cad Juan Pablo was — and the ensuing scene where she confronted him about his egotistical, insensitive ways resounded with other intelligent women everywhere.
6. Widow Kelsey Poe and her “Amazing Story”
Bachelor Chris Soules had a gaggle of kooky ladies vying for his affection on season 19, but most perplexing of all was 28-year-old widow Kelsey Poe, who kept boasting of her “amazing story” — which was actually a very sad, very tragic story. Kelsey’s husband, Sanderson Poe, died suddenly after having a heart attack on the street. But the strange, dispassionate way that she spoke about the incident left more than one person in the Bachelor house — and in the viewing audience — questioning her motives. Was she just using her story to get noticed? After all, there was another widow in the house, Juelia Kinney, who lost her husband in an equally, if not more, tragic way and she didn’t feel a need to constantly remind everyone how amazing her story was. Then, when Kelsey fell to the floor after purportedly having a panic attack hours before the rose ceremony, it seemed a perfect opportunity for her to snag some alone time with Chris and finally tell him about her “amazing story.” It appeared to work out for her as she ended up staying an extra week, when to all outward appearances, she should’ve been sent home that night.
