Bachelorette’s 12 Most Notorious Villains
10. JJ Lane (Kaitlyn’s Season)
Oh, JJ, another dad who started off seeming like a nice-enough guy, and then threw everyone for a loop when he began bromancing Clint Arlis, in what was one of the craziest storylines ever to appear on the show. These two big macho guys reputedly spent hours together, soaking in the hot tub, popping each other’s zits in the shower and boosting each other’s already inflated egos. But the closer they got, the meaner they also got, turning the rest of the house against them. When Kailyn announced she was going to ask Clint to leave, prior to the rose ceremony, JJ threw his BFF under the bus in front of everyone, asking him to apologize to the other guys for his rude behavior, when he had been every bit as rude. This resulted in an emotionally charged confrontation between the two friends, in which Clint clearly felt betrayed, calling JJ many bad words. Once Clint had left, a distraught JJ was captured crying and slapping himself in the face. Then Nick Viall came on midseason, and JJ faded into the background while Nick took over as “The Villain.” JJ, you might not be the most heinous villain in Bachelorette history, but you just might be our favorite.
9. David Good (Jillian’s Season)
He was just a good ol’ boy, never meanin’ no harm, but this trucking contractor from Ohio clearly didn’t have Bachelorette Jillian’s best interests in mind. He became very upset that another contestant had broken the “man code” by warning Jillian about country singer Wes Hayden (see #5), who’d said he had a girlfriend back home, and got all up in fellow contestant Juan Barbieri’s face over the fact that the guy had faked drinking a shot, nearly coming to blows with him. Too much testosterone (and alcohol) was David’s downfall. David has since published a book, The Man Code: A Woman’s Code to Cracking the Tough Guy.
