If there’s one thing inevitable in every season of The Bachelor, it’s the word crazy. The show is bound to introduce someone “unhinged” at one point or another and though not every woman who fills the controversial role is really a nut-job in real life, you can’t argue that crazy makes good TV. Here are my picks for the Top 10 Craziest Bachelor Contestants of All Time:
Why Does The Bachelor Always Need a Crazy Lady?>>>
#10 Ashley Iaconetti – The Bachelor Season 19
Ashley Iaconetti was your typical Bachelor crazy. She wasn’t really weird but she got desperate and cried A LOT. She was also obsessed with her virginity and crazy obsessed with Kim Kardashian.
“I don’t want him to respect me that much.”
“I’m more Kardashian than I am country.”
“You have three wishes on my belly button ring.”
#9 Trish Schneider – The Bachelor Season 5
Wearing a t-shirt that says “Gold Digger: Like a hooker..only smarter” is probably not future wife material. Not only did Trish Schneider reveal that she slept with more men than she could count on her fingers and toes (including a married man), she also came across as a stalker when she surprised Jesse Palmer to hand her hotel room key after her elimination.
“You spent the day with her, come spend the night with me.”
#8 Courtney Robertson – The Bachelor Season 16
Courtney Robertson was arguably the most outrageous contestant in Bachelor history. She was extremely sneaky and she knew how to grab Ben Flajnik’s attention but her stint on The Bachelor came with plenty of red flags. She went topless, made several insults to other contestants and convinced Ben to go skinny-dipping in the ocean while the cameras were rolling.
“Ben is not the only guy in the world. The spark is there, or it’s not.”
“I’m not impressed by these women. Or girls — I don’t even think they’re women.”
“I almost want to rip her head off and verbally assault her. Or shave her eyebrows in the middle of the night.”
#7 Tierra Licausi – The Bachelor Season 18
Tierra Licausi probably spent most of her time on The Bachelor crying. The contestant, who was rushed to the hospital after falling down the stairs, was manipulative and didn’t get along with other contestants. It also didn’t help that she had uncontrollable eyebrows (which now has its own Twitter account).
“I’m gonna beat the shit out of these bitches.”
“They said, ‘Tierra, you have a sparkle. Do not let those girls take your sparkle away.'”
#6 Michelle Money – The Bachelor Season 15
Michelle Money easily established herself as the villain of season 15, no thanks to her snarky comments and aggressive behavior. She trashed the other contestants and even scared Brad Womack for questioning his decisions. However, she did keep the season very interesting. After The Bachelor, she also managed to go from crazy villain to fan favorite.
“All I can be is patient and hope that Chantal gets attacked by monkeys or apes.”
“It makes me completely happy to think the rain has completely ruined their one-on-one date.”
“I woke up with a black eye. I must have had a rough night of sleep last night.”

#5 Lace Morris – The Bachelor Season 20
Before Lace Morris gained respect from most viewers after she quit on The Bachelor, she was deemed one of the train wrecks of season 20. The constantly drunk contestant was confrontational and prone to meltdowns. Most of all, she kept insisting she’s not crazy.
“I’m not a crazy girl.”
“I wanna make sure Ben doesn’t think I’m some crazy girl.”
“I know I’m coming off a little crazy to you.”
#4 Olivia Caridi – The Bachelor Season 20
With Lace Morris no longer in the picture, The Bachelor soon found another “crazy” in the form of Olivia. The front runner, who scored the first impression rose from Ben Higgins, always has a trick up her sleeve, surpassing her crazy antics week after week.
“I hate my legs. People have written blogs that I have cankles.”
“Not being able to shine, I don’t think has ever been a problem for me in this process.”
“I’m here to be marriage material and I don’t think I screamed marriage material. I need to drink heavily. That was awful! What was I thinking?!”
#3 Vienna Girardi – The Bachelor Season 14
Though Vienna Girardi won the heart of Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor season 14, she didn’t have the best reputation. The “mean spoiled brat” had her share of antics but her post-breakup interview with Jake, who turned out to be just as unhinged as she is, took crazy to a whole new level.
“You are the meanest person I’ve ever met in my life! I’m over it!”
“You are a fame whore is what you are.”
#2 Ashley Salter – The Bachelor Season 19
Not a lot of crazy Bachelor contestants are deemed fan favorites but Ashley Salter, also known as Onion Girl, is an exception. Yes she did tell Chris Soules she loved him a lot, had conversations with a cat and ranted about onions but she was also super funny and entertaining.
“I just love you, Chris. I like really love you, Chris. I love everything about you. It’s crazy at this point in time, but I actually do really, really love you. And I hope this resonates in your mind tonight…you don’t have to say anything in regards to that.”
“Every person you meet is like an onion. You cut them, but when you cut them, you peel them back and what you do is you peel them back layer by layer. That to me is an onion…it’s blooming. Take a look at the freakin’ onion. Look at this onion. Seriously, I’m not even kidding. That’s a freakin’ onion. I swear it’s an onion. Can I just please just pick it? If it’s a pomegranate, then god bless it. It is a pomegranate. It is.”
#1 Kelsey Poe – The Bachelor Season 19
There’s regular Bachelor crazy and then there’s Kelsey Poe. She was dubbed as the Black Widow since she took center stage on The Bachelor season 19 with her “tragic” yet “amazing” story. Whether or not it was bad editing, it did seem like she used her sob story just to snag a rose. From dagger looks, overconfident punchlines to fake panic attacks, it’s not hard to see why Kelsey is on top of this list.
“Isn’t my story amazing?! It’s tragic but it’s amazing. I love my story.”
“I get it. I am blessed with eloquence and I’m articulate and I use a lot of big words because I’m smart.”
