Who are the most iconic Bachelor Nation villains in history? Between The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and Bachelor Pad, there's never a shortage of drama. Like any reality show, there's at least one Bachelor villain per season. Who do you think is the one stirring up said drama? The truth is, these "villains" are the lifeblood of the show. They're responsible for some of the series' best quotes and most memorable scenes.
One of the biggest Bachelorette villains is probably Ian Thompson. He was way too obsessed with himself to seriously date anyone else. Of course, there was also the Chad Johnson Bachelor drama on both Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. Some in Bachelor Nation might consider Chad Johnson to be one of the worst Bachelorette contestants ever.
For Bachelor villains, the competition is stiff. It's honestly hard to pick between contestants like Corinne Olympios, Olivia Cardi, Krystal Nielsen, and Courtney Robertson. Who could forget Corrine's bouncy castle incident? She was definitely one of the craziest Bachelor contestants. Or Krystal's post-bowling meltdown? Or Courtney's skinny-dipping scandal? Was Courtney Robertson the most hated girl on The Bachelor?
This list features the most annoying Bachelor contestants. Keep reading to relive all the past Bachelor Nation villains and the unforgettable moments that established them as the most wicked contestants on the show. Some moments are shocking, some are evil, and some are just straight-up bizarre. Don't say we didn't warn you!
