The Seven Creepiest Moments in The Bachelor and The Bachelorette History
The newest season of ABC's The Bachelor/ette television legacy begins this week. It's bound to be full of drama and romance with new bachelorette Ms. Desiree Hartsock sweeping her gents off on grand adventures all over the world.
ABC Showing up to meet someone you don't know in a wedding dress is pretty creepy -- not to mention desperate.
But let's be honest, that's only half the reason to watch. The best and usually most memorable moments are the awkward ones, like when a date suddenly turns into an impromptu wedding service or a chick shows up with fangs. Like, real fangs. In case you've forgotten just how great these fails can be, here's a roundup of the creepiest moments in The Bachelor and Bachelorette history.
7. Busting into song mid-date
It's weird enough to spontaneously begin singing to your date to fill an awkward silence, but you officially land yourself in creepy territory when the song you choose is one you're making up about her as you go. And the surplus of eye contact. That's pretty creepy, too.
6. Going sexy-vampire for the first date
The first show of the season has become a crazy attraction all its own with contestants constantly upping the ante on ways to get extra attention during the evening's cocktail party. People have shown up in helicopters, on horse, on skateboard, and even done back flips, but the creepiest shtick would probably have to be when contestant Madion Garton wore actual fangs to the party and then tried to play coy about it. Her plan totally backfired and left bachelor Brad really unconformable and confused.
5. Wearing a mask
Contestant Jeff Medolla had a great idea to make sure bachelorette Ashley Hebert wasn't just into him for his looks: Wear a mask, duh. We see what he was trying to do there, but the producers did him no favors by playing ominous music while showing him peering down on the party from the balcony above. It quickly turned the idea from cute-ish to totally creepy in a very Phantom of the Opera sort of way.
