Top 10 Most Hated Contestants Ever on “The Bachelor/The Bachelorette”

We all rolled our eyes audibly when they got a rose. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 Most Hated Contestants Ever on “The Bachelor/The Bachelorette.”
For this list, we’ll be looking at contestants who were definitely not on “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” for the right reasons and drew the wrath of a fiercely devoted Bachelor Nation.  We’re intentionally excluding those who became leads, since they already have their very own list.


#10: Lucas Yancey

Lucas baffled us the moment he rolled up in the limo with—wait, is that a megaphone? And then puzzled us every other second after that. Lucas Whaboomed often and with reckless abandon: when he drank; when he got a rose; for no reason at all. But there was one fella who didn’t fall for his Whaboomish charm. Blake obsessed over how Lucas had only come 
on the show for fame and how Whaboom-less he, himself, was. Not to be out-weirded, Lucas obsessed over Blake’s obsession with him. That sufficiently creeped Rachel out, and she sent them both packing the same night. They left not with a whimper but with a, well, you know.


#9: Wes Hayden

For weeks, rumors swirled that this cowboy had a girlfriend and had only come on the show to promote his music. But Jillian couldn’t hear the warnings over the sound of Wes serenading her with the same song over and over again. A song he’d written just for Jillian...and that he later performed just for Gia on “Bachelor Pad.” Wes made it to the final four but spectacularly slipped up during dinner. Yikes! Jillian finally sent Wes home, but he seemed to take the breakup well. Oh, and that song now happens to be available on iTunes.

#8: Corinne Olympios

Some of Corinne’s greatest hits include the time she peeled off her bikini top during a photo shoot, the time she whipped out the whipped cream, and the time she defiled an inflatable castle. For the 24-year-old with the nanny, this was her world, and the other girls were foolishly wooing in it. So she could interrupt as much as she wanted, nap as much as she wanted, and sneak to Nick’s room any time she wanted. Corinne stripped, bounced and straddled her way into Nick’s heart, but in the end, no amount of whipped cream could save her. Nick sent her home…right after she took him on a $3,000 shopping spree.  


#7: Kelsey Poe

At first, we found Kelsey endearing, what with her one dimple and cute short ’do. But Kelsey changed from sweet widow into black widow when she told Chris the “amazing” story of her husband’s death. She sent more shivers up the Bachelor Nation’s spine when she faked a panic attack before a rose ceremony. All offenses worthy of the dreaded two-on-one date with rival Ashley I. After the world’s most awkward stare-down in the world’s most awkwardly placed four-poster bed, Chris finally did what the Bachelor Nation had been rooting for him to do: ditch Kelsey in the middle of the desert. 

#6: Kalon McMahon

Many eliminated contestants leave the show weepily wondering in the limo when things went wrong. But not Kalon. The luxury brand representative and his rich boy antics ruffled feathers and perfectly coiffed hairdos the moment he landed at the mansion. After that, his offenses were many. He rolled into the mansion with Louis Vuitton bags. He refused to hang out with the other bros in the house. He strutted around in sockless loafers. But his ultimate fall from grace came when he called the daughter of single mom Emily, the very woman whose heart he was vying for, the “B” word. Where’s that heli to airlift him out?


#5: Lee Garrett

Lee went beyond the typical selfish, attention-seeking villain. He managed to rile up everyone in the house – especially Kenny—and relished every second of it.. Lee lied, lied about lying and made plans to lie in the future. The show decided to settle this the only way it knew how: send Lee and Kenny on a two-on-one date so they could fight it out in a dramatic setting. One more lie for the road, and Lee was abandoned in the Norwegian forest. But that wasn’t his worst fate: he was blasted on “The Men Tell All” for his racist antics. 

#4: Courtney Robertson

Courtney didn’t come on “The Bachelor” to make friends. In fact, she literally wrote a book called “I Didn’t Come Here To Make Friends.” The L.A. model viciously dissed the other girls in the softest voice possible. She nonchalantly bent all kinds of rules. But she made the biggest wave when she snuck to Ben’s room and lured him into a late-night ocean tryst. Well, her “winning” hijinks worked: Ben chose her in the end and proposed, dropping Bachelor Nation jaws everywhere. But not many were surprised when the pair called it quits less than a year later.

#3: Tierra LiCausi

Tierra raised many an eyebrow when she declared her inability to control her own. Was this the face that launched a thousand girl fights? Her parents warned her this would happen. Tierra held onto her sparkle even when she may or may not have tumbled down a flight of stairs, or when she probably got hypothermia from jumping in that frozen lake. But her sparkle vanished when Sean sent her home. She seems to have landed on her feet though, and even bragged about being engaged during “The Women Tell All.”


#2: Bentley Williams

The divorced dad didn’t get the bachelorette he wanted but still stuck around to toy with Ashley just for kicks. Bentley flirted vigorously with her to her face, but trash-talked her behind her back. Unfortunately, the unsuspecting Ashley fell for him hard. Finally, mercifully, Bentley decided to break up with Ashley and did it in the Bentley-est way possible. But just when it looked like he was gone for good, Bentley returned to the show to lead poor Ashley on some more, only to leave her hanging a second time.

Before we reveal our No. 1 pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
Vienna Girardi

Justin "R Rated" Rego

Ashley Iaconetti

#1: Chad Johnson

Chad rolled through the Bachelorette mansion with the grace of the Tasmanian Devil. The 28-year-old real estate agent wasted no time offending Jojo and taunting every man in the house with his Hulk-ish fury. But Chad wasn’t all bouts of rage and dismemberment threats. He also worked out feverishly. He inhaled platters of deli meat, leaving unwashed dishes lying around the house. He also gave himself cute nicknames disguised as thinly veiled threats. But in the end, Jojo did poke the Chad Bear when she broke up with him and left him in the woods.
