Admit it, we all love to hate when it comes to reality TV, and The Bachelorette wouldn’t be nearly as captivating as it is if wasn’t for these shining examples of the male species. Liars, cheaters, bullies and boors, we salute you! Here are the Top 12 Most Notorious Villains of The Bachelorette, in order of their heinousness:
12. Ben Scott (Desiree’s Season)
Every season needs a villain, and poor Ben Scott became season nine’s villain more out of a lack of options than anything he did that was particularly odious. In what was one of the most adorable entrances in the franchise’s history, this entrepreneur from Texas sent his little boy out of the limo first to give a flower to Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock. Desiree was smitten, and Ben quickly became one of her favorites, but the other guys didn’t like him. Granted, he was annoying and a tad overbearing, and he lied to the other guys about spending extra time with Des, who sent him home midway through the season. What’s interesting about Ben Scott is that he is one of three contestants to make it on this list who are dads. You’d think that dads who go on the show would be sweeter and more careful about the way they present themselves on TV than other guys, but apparently, that’s not true. Let’s hope these schmucks are nicer when they’re not on camera.
