This list was originally going to be titled, “The Top 7 Bachelor Villainesses,” but compared with The Bachelorette, where two-timing schmucks and sociopathic personality types are a dime a dozen, the crimes of the female contestants tend to be more of the “Doesn’t play well with others/Is too pretty/Too fake/Too confident/Doesn’t shower” variety. In other words, the women who are cast as villains often don’t really deserve the title in the same way that, say, Bentley Williams from Ashley’s season on The Bachelorette does. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be as annoying as fingernails on a chalkboard — which is why we have decided to go with The Top 7 Most Annoying Contestants Ever To Appear On The Bachelor. Who remembers these lovely ladies?
7. Ashley Iaconetti (Chris’s Season)
When this Kim Kardashian lookalike emerged from the limo, the resounding question was, “How could a girl who looks so high maintenance be interested in a farmer from a Podunk town in the-middle-of-nowhere Iowa?” With her perfectly made-up face and fake eyelashes that were in danger of falling off every time she cried, which was about every five minutes, Ashley I. certainly didn’t seem like someone who’d be at home riding tractors and mucking around in the fields all day. But she surprised everyone when she won a tractor driving competition on the first group date, so who knows? The fact that she was a virgin at 26 was something that she really liked talking about, which served to alienate her from the other girls — along with the fact that she threw a hissy fit when Jade got the “Cinderella” date with Chris, believing that she totally deserved to get it (since she did, after all, bear a striking resemblance to Jasmine, from Disney’s Aladdin). Chris let her go during a 2-on-1 in the desert, along with our #2, Kelsey Poe. Luckily for this wannabe princess, she was given a second chance at love on Bachelor in Paradise, which is currently airing. We wish her all the best.
