While most go on to the Bachelor and Bachelorette genuinely looking for love, the series has attracted some down right baddies. We've ranked the top ten villains from the Bachelor and Bachelorette series from around the globe.
1. JUAN PABLO GALAVIS
The former soccer player is said to have bedded at least three contestants. The first incident took place weeks before Chris Harrison even offered up a fantasy suite date and the girl was promptly dumped at that week's rose ceremony. Charmingly he told one of the final girls during a helicopter ride, "I love f**king you, but I don't know you." Charming. He caused more headaches for Bachelor producers when he said the prospect of a gay Bachelor would not be a good example for kids.
2. CHAD JOHNSON
Chad Johnson will go down in history as one of the most memorable contestants EVER. He looked like a front runner on the first episode of the American Bachelorette vying for JoJo's heart. The hunky real estate agent quickly turned bad, clashing with all of the men in the house. Not only did he rip Evan's shirt in rage but he regulalry threatened the men, saying he would murder them and their family. He was well known for his non stop meat eating and strange workouts. After JoJo dumped him him appeared in one episode of Bachelor in Paradise before getting booted after the first night for swearing at and threatening the other contestants. To top it off he also pooed himself... yes, you read that right.
3. WES HAYDEN
Wes Hayden is the first contestant to make it to the final four of the Bachelorette while having a girlfriend. This aspiring country singer's main motive for entering was fame and he didn't mind playing Bachelorette Jillian along the way. After the scum bag was finally booted he bragged all the way home in the limo about his girlfriend. Such a piece of work.
4. BLAKE GARVEY
Who could forget Australia's second ever Bachelor. We all remember bad boy Blake ended up picking Sam Frost but later leaving her heart broken after changing his mind and hooking up with Louise Pildridge. We always sensed something wasn't quite right about him. It probably had something to do with the doucey topless waiter photos that were released before the series aired.

5. KELSEY POE
In an all time Bachelor low, contestant Kelsey Poe angered audiences when she bragged what a great 'story' she had. That story was her husband was dead. Classy. She even faked a panic attack to avoid an elimination.
6. JUSTIN REGO
The wrestler nicknamed "Rated R" was nothing but a loser with a girlfriend. When Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky wised up all he could do was run away.
7. ROZLYN PAPA
Rozlyn got caught out having an "inappropriate relationship" with a producer on the Bachelor. While she never admitted it, she did have an infamous chat with American host Chris Harrison where all she did was sit and insult me. Back off Rozlyn! Chris is Bachelor royalty.
8. Keira Maguire
She's been the talk of Richie's season for her firery tongue and teeth licking ways. Although it was clear from day dot there was no real connection with Richie, Keira stayed around long enough to entertain audiences and annoy all the other girls in the house. She'll go down in Bachelor Australia history after calling Kiki Morris a peasant. Ouch.

9. BENTLEY WILLIAMS
Bentley Williams was the hot single dad that turned bad. He entered the house looking for love, but when he found out that the option was Ashley Herbert and not Emily Maynard things went down hill. He made it clear to audiences that he had no feelings for poor Ashely, who was rather smitten. His most famous outburst was when he stated he'd rather swim in wee than marry Ashley. Nice.
10. COURTNEY ROBERTSON
Courtney Robertson was the villain of season 15 of the American Bachelor. While she impressed Bachelor Ben, the women in the house weren't so happy. She angered fellow contestants when she snuck into Ben's room, before going skinny dipping directly after his date with another girl. Her catchphrase of the season was 'winning' which she said whilst arrogantly smelling her rose. Despite being warned by the women, Ben gave his final rose to Courtney, but things didn't work out. She later released a book called I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain. At least she was aware or her behaviour.
