The worst ‘Bachelor’ contestants of all time – at least until we meet ‘Bachelorette’ Rachel’s guys

1 of 3

The Bachelor would be a total snooze-fest without villains and crazies, but these five baddies top the list when it comes to cringe-worthy contestants.

Most Bachelor contestants fall into one of the following categories: entertaining, a fan favorite, villain, absolutely crazy, and totally forgettable. Then there a select few who are, hands down, the worst contestants in Bachelor history.

And we’re not talking about the lunatics (think “Onion Girl”) — they are usually harmless and fall under the “entertaining” category. Without them, the show would be nothing. Imagine a summer without a Paradise contestant talking to birds or crabs? Yeah, we love lunatics!  But the worst of the worst? We want to vote them right out of the Bachelor franchise forever, Survivor-style.

Who made our 5 worst Bachelor contestants list?

The Bachelor contestants who are deemed “The Worst” are just like snowflakes. No two are the same.

While they all have different reasons for being so horrible, they also have one thing in common — most fans don’t like them. Or at least they don’t like them on The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, or Bachelor in Paradise.

Evan Bass

Evan makes it onto our “worst” list because he gave everyone who looked at him the heebie-jeebies during JoJo’s season of the Bachelorette. The whole situation between Evan and Chad was painfully awkward. Despite getting a little sympathy from fans when Chad ripped his shirt, he turned out to be a whiny tattletale.

However, that’s not the main reason Evan is on the list — his appearance on Bachelor in Paradise.

It was absolutely brutal to watch Evan and all of his awkwardness last summer. We’re positive he brainwashed Carly Waddell into falling in love with him. Well, maybe she has a thing was creepy dudes (Kirk DeWindt!), she struck gold.

Kelsey Poe

Known as the “Black Widow,” Kelsey faked her way through the show. Her fake panic attack. Her fake laugh.

And zero props to Kelsey for making out with Bachelor Chris Soules right after telling him that not so “amazing story” about her dead ex.


And can we blame Kelsey for making Ashley I. cry 24/7? Not that she needed help in that department, but …ugh.
