Does the bad guy ever deserve love? Former Bachelorette/BiP villain Chad Johnson addresses rumors that he is dating Kendra Wilkinson.

Is love in the air for Bad Chad Johnson? This villainous alum of JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette has been making waves recently after a photo surfaced of him holding hands with former Girl Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson. Early reports had indicated that they were having dinner together and that they might have recently become an official item.

Now, Chad is setting the record straight: apparently the hand-holding was all a sort of hoax?

In an interview with Life & Style, Chad went on to explain to explain that the pair had been together to film a skit for Barstool Sports. Apparently he figured that the hand-holding would just be a fun way to mess around and play with fans. He did reveal, however, that he left that night with her number.

Kendra Wilkinson seems to back up his story. She recently posted on Instagram about how she is not currently seeing anyone. We could do without her crude references. . . but hey, maybe that fits with Chad’s own aggressive personality.

Look, we’ll be the first to admit that we aren’t Chad’s biggest fans. The guy was a grade A jerk on JoJo’s season of The Bachelorette and somehow he got even worse when he went on Bachelor in Paradise, where he verbally attacked host Chris Harrison.

Still, we have to admit that everyone deserves their shot at finding love. Is Kendra Wilkinson Chad’s perfect fit? Who can say. But it does sound like they hit it off while filming that sketch. Perhaps Kendra’s anti-dating agenda on Instagram will change in the near future.

In the meantime, we can only hope that Chad Johnson has softened a bit since his explosion on the beaches of Paradise. Back then, he seemed borderline unstable and had a tendency toward physical violence. We can’t imagine those personality features playing out well in a committed relationship.
