The Bachelor’s 9 Most Embarrassing Moments
ABC’s The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are all about creating this wild emotional ride on a journey to find love paired with unbelievably romantic dates, fairy tale scenarios and lots of free-flowing champagne — it’s no wonder people get caught up in the moment! The surrender to love and reality television often leads to the most entertaining of blunders and this list celebrates the very best off-cue moments. We’re counting down some of the most embarrassing Bachelor moments ever!
9. Mistaken Identity
Season 19 of The Bachelor made way for Prince Farming, Chris Soules, and in an embarrassing moment at the rose ceremony, bachelorette contestant, Jillian Anderson, misheard her name and stepped forward without actually being called. And if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, when she tried to step back after realizing her mistake, her heel slipped kicking the rug out in front of her and she nearly tumbled. She tried to laugh it off, but the obnoxious laughter made it all the worse and Chris stepped forward to help her fix the carpet. Even the other bachelorettes couldn’t hide their mortified expressions!
8. Relationship Between Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi
When Jake chose Vienna, audiences were speechless, but what was worse was the very public break up that ensued in an interview with Chris Harrison. In one of the ugliest showdowns in Bachelor history, accusations and tears flew as Vienna confronted Jake, calling him a “fame whore” and a “liar.” She said she expected a normal life with a pilot, but instead got a life in LA with an unemployed actor pursuing a career in the biz. By the end of the he-said, she-said slandering, Vienna seemed to emerge as the winner. But Jake later redeemed himself somewhat when both Vienna and Jake were cast on the second season of Bachelor Pad, Jake tried to make amends to no avail, and Vienna was left looking like a pouting princess.
