2. Arie Luyendyk Jr.

How could anyone possibly walk away from the race car driving babe, Arie Luyendyk Jr.? But that’s exactly what Emily Maynard did on season 8 of The Bachelorette! The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner was sent packing and Emily selected Jef Holm as her fiancé! Emily and Jef didn’t last long and Arie moved on to the infamously mean Bachelor season 16 winner, Courtney Robertson. Luckily, the two are just friends these days, because there are plenty of women who wouldn’t mind dating Emily’s not-so-sloppy seconds!

1. Drew Kenney

Desiree Hartsock may have selected the match that was right for her, but Drew Kenney was an absolute Ken doll that America fell in love with! And we could never wish a broken heart upon a Ken doll! Like the true gentleman he is, Drew stated of the rejection, “I didn’t have any anger towards her. I understood that she was going through something difficult. If she didn’t feel like she didn’t have that connection with me then I wasn’t going to sit there and try to convince her otherwise. That was something she needed to figure out on her own.” These days, Drew is busy being sexy while bartending for the stars in Los Angeles and America is busy missing his face…and his abs!
