In 2020, Peter Weber was usually known as the worst Bachelor of all time.
After he proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss, ghosted her, dated Madison Prewett for like a day, and then lastly wound up with Kelley Flanagan, who additionally bought bored with him, he could have earned that title.
It is not arduous to see why the man is so extensively disliked – in spite of everything, he wasted all people’s time, delivered a painfully anti-climactic conclusion, and broke fairly just a few hears along with his indecisiveness.
However whereas it is not usually that you will discover us defending Pilot Pete right here at THG, now we have to push again in opposition to the concept he is the unequivocally the worst Bachelor of all time.
Positive, he is probably the most current to ship a complete letdown of a season – however he is not the primary, nor the final. Actually, Matt James’ season ended with many disappointments as nicely.
So be part of us on a visit down Fantasy Suite reminiscence lane as we check out the rose grasp generals who had been extra thorn than blossom and decide who was actually the largest dud amongst studs.
Have a look:
You may hear the time period “worst Bachelor of all-time” bandied about rather a lot in reference to Peter Weber. However as you are about to search out out, Pilot Pete really has fairly a little bit of competitors in that division.
Matt James, the primary Black Bachelor lead, got here in with excessive expectations, for positive. Whereas he personally did not do something throughout his 2020 season that may be thought-about “Worst Ever” materials, the franchise crumbling round him made for one of many ickiest seasons in franchise historical past.
He Selected Rachael Kirkconnell
Extremely, Matt’s closing rose winner was Rachael Kirkconnell, who made headlines in the course of the season for all of the incorrect causes – previous pictures of her at a racially insensitive Plantation get together, and her tone-deaf response to that controversy. Rachael finally apologized extra sincerely, however not earlier than Chris Harrison made the scenario exponentially worse with an much more tone-deaf protection of Kirkconnell. By the point the ultimate rose was handed out on TV, the couple had already gone their separate methods – and plenty of followers had divorced the Bachelor itself.
First on our listing is Nick Viall. We all know what you are pondering — Nick’s not such a foul man. Actually, he nonetheless hosts a wildly fashionable podcast about all issues Bachelor Nation. However that is precisely our level …
When you google the time period “right here for the incorrect causes,” Nick’s face ought to be the primary to pop up. From the beginning, this man made it completely clear that he loves the limelight greater than he may ever love any romantic associate.
Not Taking the Trace
Nick received the primary impression rose from lawyer Andi Dorfman and made it to her closing spherical, the place he misplaced to Josh Murray. He then weaseled his manner into Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season. Subsequent, he appeared on Bachelor In Paradise, earlier than lastly touchdown a task as The Bachelor in 2016.
Extra Curious about Somebody (Factor) Else
Nick proposed to Vanessa Grimaldi on the conclusion of his season, however they broke up shortly thereafter. No nice shock, there. In any case, this man is already in a dedicated relationship with the Bachelor franchise.
Like Peter, Jason was undone by his incapacity to make a rattling choice. He initially proposed to Melissa Rycroft, however later determined she wasn’t the one and dumped her on air.
Cannot Argue With That
“You might be such a bastard,” she stated him, post-dumping. “I want greater than something on that final day you’ll have simply let me go.” We’re fairly positive all of Bachelor Nation agreed together with her evaluation of the scenario.
On the brilliant aspect, Jason remains to be married to his second selection, Molly Malaney. After all, that is in all probability not Melissa’s thought of a contented ending.
Then there’s Brad Womack, who bought two turns as Bachelor and did not suggest to ANYONE his first time round!
Second Time’s Not the Appeal
Followers did not love that call, however at the least the man caught to his weapons. His second time round, he proposed to Emily Maynard. The 2 broke up shortly thereafter to the shock of completely nobody.
You could be stunned to see Ben Flajnik on this listing, as there’s actually nothing to dislike in regards to the man.
However Ben proposed to Courtney Robertson, who was in all probability probably the most disliked lady in her solid. The transfer did not earn Flajnik many followers, and few had been stunned when Courtney wrote a scathing tell-all after the 2 of them broke up.
Talking of likable guys who had been complete duds as Bachelors, football-playing virgin Colton spent a lot of his season shedding tears that we by no means bought to see the fun-loving man these girls had been alleged to be falling in love with.
On the Fence
Positive, he finally delivered some dramatic fireworks when he infamously hopped that fence, however for probably the most half, it felt like Colt did not actually wish to be there (and he DEFINITELY did not wish to be within the Fantasy Suite).
Quarantined With Cassie
He finally proposed to Cassie Randolph, however given their lack of chemistry, it did not come as a lot of a shock when these two went their separate methods throughout quarantine.
Like a reverse Jimmy Carter, Chris was simply advantageous as Bachelor — however his life turned an absolute mess after he left the present.
In 2017, Chris killed an aged man in a hit-and-run accident close to his house in Iowa.
Fairly a Duo
In 2020, he went on so far Victoria Fuller, one other of the franchise’s most divisive figures. We assumed they had been hatching a villainous scheme someplace in farm nation. We child. They each appeared to imply nicely. They finally went their separate methods as nicely.
Arie Luyendyk Jr.
Different contestants might need had a tough time making their closing choice, however nobody effed it up fairly like Arie, who hemmed and hawed till the bitter finish, finally selecting Becca Kufrin over Lauren Burnham … then altering his thoughts within the ensuing months.
A Gross Starting
After proposing to Becca, he sleazed his manner into the DMs of another contestants and finally proposed to Lauren … IN FRONT OF BECCA! Actually disgusting stuff, my man! (Granted, he and Lauren bought married and have a wonderful household collectively, however nonetheless.)
That brings us to Peter Weber, who – as we already talked about – additionally had a REALLY arduous time selecting a winner. He actually wished Madison Prewett, however bought engaged to Hannah Ann Sluss, solely to ghost her and attempt to win again Prewett, who he additionally ended issues with after like 12 hours. So yeah. Not one of the best.
Peter and Kelley
For a time, Peter was fortunately courting Chicago-based lawyer Kelley Flanagan, an early castoff on his Bachelor season. However she, too, expressed frustration along with his unwillingness to calm down as he apparently selected a relocation to N.Y. Metropolis over their relationship.
Peter actually made a robust run for the title of Worst Bachelor Ever, however one man nonetheless has him beat.
Juan Pablo Galavais
Topping our listing, in fact, is Juan Pablo Galavais, who’s not solely the worst Bachelor of all time, however one of many worst males to ever seem on actuality TV … which is admittedly saying one thing.
What a Man
Juan Pablo slut-shamed one among his contestants so brutally that ABC was compelled to problem an apology. He made homophobic remarks about the opportunity of a homosexual Bachelor and was faraway from Dancing With the Stars in consequence.
Simply the Worst
He finally proposed to Nikki Ferell, however refused to inform her he liked her on digicam, even after Chris Harrison principally begged him to take action.
The Triumph of Clare
However hey, it wasn’t all dangerous. Clare Crawley placing Juan Pablo in his place is without doubt one of the nice moments in Bachelor historical past. And as a reward, Clare went on to be the Bachelorette in 2020!
