Season 9: Desiree Hartsock 

Okay, let’s really talk about the most embarrassing part of this season–“The Soulja Boy Rap”. The Bachelorette of the season, Desiree, or Des, and her suitors were found dancing and singing “right reasons!” in front of the Bachelor Mansion over and over for the chorus.

Probably not the best choice, but it made for an entertaining episode.

Another cringeworthy (and sad!) moment in Des’s season was when The Bachelorette contestant Brooks fliped the rules and broke up with Des instead. Typical fashion allows for the Bachelor/Bachelorette to send contestants home, but Brooks didn’t quite care when he instead broke it to her that he wanted to be in love with her, but isn’t.

In a tearful conversation, she told him that she loves him and can’t imagine life without him. But *SPOILER* she is now happily married to one of the other contestants from her season, Chris Siegfried with two kiddos. So, all hope wasn’t lost for her!

Season 10: Andi Dorfman

Remember when contestant Nick Viall outed The Bachelorette’s Andi Dorfman on having sex with him in the fantasy suite during the Final Rose episode after he found out he wasn’t the final contestant?

I know I was definitely shocked when I watched this episode air. Completely blindsided by what he was going to say, Andi was equally stunned when Nick asked “If you weren’t in love with me, why would you make love with me?” YIKES.
