8 Bachelorette Contestants Who Should Never Have Been Cast
6. The Mask (Ashley’s Season)
Poor Ashley not only had to contend with Bentley Williams on her season, but she also had to deal with this creepy guy. Like Zorro or the Phantom of the Opera, contestant Jeff Medolla wore a black mask covering his eyes and nose, which he didn’t take off until the third episode. This truly couldn’t have been more annoying, and it certainly didn’t help him make any friends, but Ashley must’ve found him intriguing enough to keep him around for a couple of rose ceremonies. Unfortunately for him, she let him go after he revealed his face to her. Note to producers: Unless you’re going to pull a Bachelorette: Masquerade season, no more guys in masks, please.
5. Frank Neuschaefer (Ali’s Season)
Nice guy Frank Neuschaefer with the Buddy Holly glasses and big smile, shocked the pants off of everyone when he flew back home to Chicago after spending a seemingly great hometown date there with Ali, because he thought he might still be in love with his ex-girlfriend and needed to figure things out. This was completely unbeknownst to Ali, who had no idea there was someone else on Frank’s mind, and who was naively looking forward to their overnight date in Tahiti. When Frank arrived in Tahiti, he confided in host Chris Harrison that he had met with his ex, who admitted she was still in love with him, too, and that he needed to let Ali know he was in love with someone else. Well, duh! Needless to say, Ali was blindsided and extremely upset, because she had actually believed Frank could be “the one.” Sorry, Frank, you might be a decent guy and all, but if you’re still carrying a torch for someone else, you probably shouldn’t be going on a dating show.
