8 Bachelorette Villains Who Don’t Deserve The Hate
4. Adam Gottschalk (AND Adam Jr.)
You can’t mention Adam Gottschalk without Adam Jr. and that’s just so friggin’ creepy. That’s because Adam Jr. isn’t a child, but a fake mini-me (AKA dummy). As freaky as it was unexpected, viewers didn’t know what to think of Adam Jr. and, frankly, neither did Rachel Lindsay. While she gets all of our respect for not simply whipping that nightmare-come-to-life into the fire place as soon as Adam whipped it out, the whole situation was almost too much to handle. Which is probably why Rachel ended up sending the dude (and his little friend) home A.S.A.P. However, just because he has an unusual (and kind of weird) hobby doesn’t necessarily make the man a villain.
3. Lucas “Whaboom” Yancey
Lucas “Whaboom” Yancey will undoubtedly go down in The Bachelorette history as one of the quirkiest contestants to ever take on the romance reality TV show (seriously, Rachel Lindsay landed with quite a few fellas who had unexpected quirks and super strange traits). While Lucas undeniably rubbed plenty of people the wrong way (including Rachel herself), he stayed true to his WHABOOM-ness right up until the very end. Frankly, he even recorded a performance that was just as wacky as you’d expect for the Men Tell All reunion which, unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) was not aired. Luckily for you (or unluckily for you) the entire thing was recorded by someone who was in the audience and shared with the entire world. Get ready to cringe (HARD!) at this song that will prove that Lucas is less of a villain and more of an, er, unique character.
