30 ‘The Bachelor’ Villains And Why We Love to Hate Them

JJ was one half of the one of the most famous bro-mances in the show’s history. Awkwardly coined Brokeback Bachelor, JJ made friends with fellow contestant Clint Arlis on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette, and they spent most of their downtime developing their burgeoning relationship.

In fact, Clint even confessed his interest in JJ over Kaitlyn, saying, “I feel like I’ve connected with JJ probably more than Kaitlyn right now. We’re so similar it’s actually insane.” All the hype was really just to promote the show, and JJ went on to make his mark in other ways.

JJ was smarmy and smug, and walked around like he everything was completely beneath him. He was unafraid to express this sentiment and spent a good bit of his time (when he wasn’t with Clint) pretending he was better than everyone else.

He said as much on one of the group dates, performing a little stand up comedy for Kaitlyn and guest star, Amy Schumer. In a weak attempt at humor, JJ told his audience, “Sometimes, I feel like I’m too smart for, like, 90 percent of the audience.” Obviously this didn’t go over with Schumer, who responded, “He’s just missing like, charisma and humility and, like, a sense of humor.”

He certainly wasn’t the nice guy you hope to date, but he was not lacking in self-confidence, however misguided it might be.
