Most Bachelor Nationites may claim to go on the shows "for the right reasons," but the truth is, many of them are more likely to get caught up in a whole lot of drama than they are to find lasting love. There's a reason host Chris Harrison is always saying each season is "the most dramatic ever," and that's because the franchise's producers always seem to pick contestants who have a tendency to stir up some pretty dramatic Bachelor Nation feuds. Don't get me wrong, these fights make for great entertainment, but it does seem kind of odd that so many fans seem to be more interested in the enemies, rather than the couples, who are a result of the franchise.
As Harrison told GQ Magazine, "Love is as much of a competition as anything. If you don’t think so, you’re either losing the game or you’re not playing." And it's clear the Bachelor Nation alums on this list played the game pretty hard. In fact, some of them have gotten so into their beef, they've even feuded not just on the show, but also IRL. From the very first Bachelor villains to the 2019 Instagram battle between Colton Underwood and Rachel Lindsay, here are some of the most intense spats in the franchise's history.
