Is Peter Weber really the worst Bachelor of all time, or have we all just forgotten the other sleazeballs and snooze-fests who have come and gone over the 24 long seasons of the show? Although many people are mad about the way the pilot's run is going, we must remember the lineup of jerks who put us on a wild (and frustrating) ride years before. We’re now taking a look back at the very worst leading men and checking in to see what they’re up to today.
Here’s a list of the 10 worst Bachelors of all time and where they are now.
1. Juan Pablo Galavis
Juan Pablo kicks off this list on a really low note. Not only did he seem uniformly bored throughout his season, but he refused to say “I love you” to his final contestant. Oh, and did we mention that he made anti-gay remarks in an interview?
So where is Juan now? He’s a Miami-based sports and entertainment consultant, married to Venezuelan model and TV host Osmariel Villalobos.
2. Arie Luyendyk Jr.
We all remember the excruciating “unedited” footage of Arie’s breakup with Becca Kufrin. So awkward. But maybe all’s well that ends well? Arie's second engagement to runner-up to Lauren Burnham stuck, and the couple had a baby in 2019.
3. Jason Mesnick
Runner-up in the “oops-I-changed-my-mind” breakup contest has to be Jason Mesnick, who very publicly dumped Melissa Rycroft on After the Final Rose. He admitted he had feelings for his other finalist, Molly Malaney, and they’re still together today.
4. Jake Pavelka
If you remember Jake, it’s because of all the yelling. He screamed at Vienna Girardi in an interview that was supposed to help fans understand why the couple was breaking up. No mysteries there!
Jake managed to have an alright TV career, and he dated Kristin Chenoweth for a hot second. He still has his job as a pilot, and you might have caught him in a guest appearance on Jojo’s season of The Bachelorette.
5. Brad Womack
Brad rejected both of the final women in Season 11 and still came back for more as the Bachelor in Season 15. He finally made a choice and picked Emily Maynard, but the pair split. Brad may not have love, but at least he has his work: He owns several bars in Austin, Texas.
6. Lorenzo Borghese
Despite actually being royal, this guy was no prince. Worse, as far as we’re concerned, he managed to make what could have been a real-life fairy tale, super boring.
If you’re a fan of Dutch TV, you may have caught him on a reality show about princes looking for love. He’s also the heir to his family’s cosmetics company, and runs a business called Royal Pet Club that makes products for man's best friend.
7. Ben Flajnik
Ben made the mistake of picking the season’s villain, Courtney Robertson, for his final rose. Bad decision. Robertson wrote a tell-all book about him when they split.
Things worked out alright in the end. Ben lives in San Francisco and works at Yelp.
8. Bob Guiney
Bob seemed like a nice, normal guy. Of all the Bachelors in the show’s history, we wouldn’t have guessed he’d be the one to sleep with (more than?) five women during the course of filming.
Bob’s been busy since then. He published a book, he plays music for charity, and he’s been married twice: once to soap opera star Rebecca Budig, and then in 2016 to Jessica Canyon, with whom he has a baby.
9. Ben Higgins
Ben told both of his final women that he loved them. What were you thinking, Ben?
He finally chose Lauren Bushnell, and the two ended up with their own TV show, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After. Apparently that was too much pressure, because the couple subsequently broke up. Did we mention Ben also tried to run for the Colorado House of Representatives?
10. Charlie O’Connell
This Long Island bro did body shots off of the women. Plus, Chris Harrison doesn’t like him.
Charlie is now married to Playboy Playmate Anna Sophia Berglund.
