On this week’s episode of The Bachelorette, we got one last serving of Chad rage before everyone’s favourite cold-cut enthusiast said goodbye (or rather, “I hate all you dudes. Sleep with one eye open”) for the last time. Sigh…sniff sniff. Yeah sure, Chad was the worst, but villains are sort of the best, and now we’re supposed to just sit back while a bunch of nice guys sing lame guitar jams about words that rhyme with JoJo? Not exactly…
As professional boner-conjurer Evan pointed out so astutely during a confessional interview, the departure of Chad resulted in the creation of a bunch of “mini Chads,” which is sort of like the reverse of that phenomenon where a bunch of New York subway rats come together to form a Rat King (warning: do not Google “Rat King”). Point is, Chad is dead, but evil, jealously and trickery remain. So who will be our next villain? Here, our best bets in ascending order.
8. James Taylor
The “nicest guy in the world” becomes the new villain???!!! This would be a sensational twist, but we’re pretty sure the black eye is the furthest JT is going to venture into bad boy territory.
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on City. Catch up on past episodes at citytv.com.
