Ben Flajnik‘s season of “The Bachelor” just wrapped its airing with Ben choosing Courtney Robertson, the girl everyone loved to hate. She was, at times, arrogant, rude, self-centered, a braggart and extremely manipulative – definitely a polarizing figure, which was only added to by the fact that she won.
But how does she stack up against other “Bachelor” franchise “villains”?
There’s Michelle Money, who was the Courtney of her season – though now having seen how Courtney behaved, Michelle’s antics look positively quaint. Also, she really redeemed herself on “Bachelor Pad” last summer.
There’s Rozlyn Papa, the woman booted off the show for allegedly having an affair with one of the producers. That’s pretty dastardly, though it was also a huge case of he said/she said in terms of what actually happened.
There’s Jason Mesnick, who dumped Melissa on live TV and then asked Molly to take him back. That was pretty bad, but has the outrage over that been mitigated since Jason and Molly have now been married for almost three years?
And let us not forget Justin “Rated R” Rego and Bentley Williams – they were a couple of princes, coming on the show for fame. Rated R came on the show with a couple of girlfriends back home, while Bentley openly slammed bachelorette Ashley at every turn behind her back.
Finally, Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl. Vienna was disliked on her season and also won, just like Courtney. But she gained a bit of sympathy as her and Jake’s break-up played out publicly. She then lost all that sympathy when she and then-new-boyfriend Kasey came on “Bachelor Pad” and displayed their pettiness and dysfunction for all the world to see.
So who is the biggest villain? Vote now and sound off in the comments.
